He then served as Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, from 1994 to 1995. Nye is author of numerous books and more than 150 articles in professional journals. His most recent publication is The Powers to Lead (Oxford University Press, 2008). In this book, Nye discusses the nature of leadership and how it has been transformed by the information revolution.
