DESTLER, after analyzing the evolution of the NSC staff, argues that responding to immediate presidential demands has undercut the U.S. government's capacity for continuity and coherence in foreign policy. He contends that major improvement will depend on future presidents deemphasizing personal decision making in favor of other leadership instruments and on delegating to strong subordinates.
