Long Description
This detailed study is the first complete attempt to describe the vulnerability of minerals of strategic importance to the United States. It determines not only which are the primary strategic minerals, but what risks are involved in obtaining them from current sources and transporting them by current routes. Anderson first surveys which nations the United States is dependent upon for its strategic minerals and then turns to an analysis of the total global strategic mineral infrastructure.
