He is the author of Perception and Misperception in International Politics (Princeton University Press, 1976), The Meaning of the Nuclear Revolution (Cornell University Press, 1989), and Why Intelligence Fails: Lessons from the Fall of the Shah and Iraqi WMD (Cornell University Press, 2010).

Each summer, invited experts and select students gather at Columbia University for twelve weeks of intensive study, independent research, and collaborative writing on a critical issue in international affairs. The 2010 program focuses on nuclear proliferation and the future of world power.
