The Soviet Union in the Third World : successes and failures by Joseph L Nogee ( Book )
6 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This memorandum, based upon the contents of the papers presented at the 1979 Military Policy Symposium on the Soviet Union in the Third World, identifies those conclusions upon which there is a consensus and notes those where significant differences exist concerning the successes and failures of Soviet policy in the Third World. From his analysis of the papers the author concludes that in the long run the United States is in a better position than the Soviet Union to influence the outcome of events in the Third World.

Implications of a changing NATO by Phillip R Cuccia ( )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"NATO officials plan to unveil the new North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Strategic Concept during the Alliance's summit in Portugal at the end of 2010. This monograph focuses on the impact that the Strategic Concept will have on the Alliance. This analysis describes recent trends within NATO and their implications, and provides senior military and political leaders with a discussion of the changing composition of the NATO nations and the impact of these changes on the nature of the Alliance. The monograph describes four possible scenarios of what NATO could look like in the future so as to give senior leaders thoughts to consider while instituting NATO policy. In terms of NATO relevance, the prevailing thought at the close of the Cold War was that NATO needed to find a suitable common threat to substitute for the former Soviet Union. That role was initially filled by the threat of destabilization with the crisis in the Balkans and then by the NATO response to September 11, 2001 (9/11) and global terrorism. NATO's response was guided by a Strategic Concept written in 1999 which did not directly address global terrorism. The Strategic Concept was supplemented in 2006 with the Comprehensive Political Guidance which provided a framework and political direction for NATO's continuing transformation and set priorities for all Alliance capability issues for the following 10 to 15 years. The NATO Alliance has now reached its 60th birthday and is currently in the middle of updating and rewriting the new Strategic Concept. The Alliance, which has grown to 28 countries, is facing problems with changing demographics, an awkward relationship with Russia, a war in Afghanistan, and threats of global jihad. Muslim immigration into Europe and population aging will have a great impact on European views of the Alliance. NATO must decide how closely it wants to work and coordinate with Russia in future endeavors. The most important issue at hand is how NATO is going to fare coming out of the war in Afghanistan. The desired NATO outcome needs to be defined clearly. It is imperative that the New Strategic Concept address NATO goals in Afghanistan and the ways and means of accomplishing those goals. Defined goals will give member nations objectives while formulating national defense plans. Getting the Strategic Concept right is the first step in maintaining the health of the Alliance. This monograph examines four possible future scenarios for NATO: the U.S. leadership relationship with NATO continues on the same path; the U.S. leadership in NATO increases; the European Union (EU) leadership in NATO increases; and the NATO Alliance breaks apart. The scenarios present a range of short- and long-term challenges for the future. The prominent short-term challenge is consensus on the 2010 Strategic Concept. If well thought out, it will set the conditions for both short- and long-term success. NATO must decide whether to 'go global' or concentrate on the collective defense of Europe. But those options are not mutually exclusive. U.S. policymakers must ensure that NATO policy toward Russia is clear. NATO's relationship with Russia must be based on openness, both when the two sides agree and when they disagree. The new Strategic Concept must identify NATO goals in Afghanistan and indicate how they will be attained. The biggest threat to NATO now is the 'internal threat' caused by the absence of consensus over what the perceived 'external threat' to NATO is."
Leadership and national security reform by Joseph R Cerami ( )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On March 20, 2008, the Bush School of Government and Public Service and the European Union Center of Excellence of Texas A & M University teamed with the LBJ School of the University of Texas at Austin and with the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute for a program to examine the choices facing the American voter in foreign and defense policy in the November 2008 elections. This colloquium examined the contemporary international environment and American national security policy for the next presidential administration. Participants examined how threats, policies, and strategies have changed since 2001 and how the U.S., European and other international security systems have responded to changing requirements.--p. 1
The Chinese armed forces in the 21st century ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a serious look at the armed forces of China and how they will evolve. The chapters in this volume were developed from papers prepared for the eighth in a series of conferences on the People's Liberation Army (PLA). The people at the conferences were recognized experts on armed forces and security matters in China drawn from academe, government, the military, and policy think tanks. Each chapter author was challenged to envision some aspect of the Chinese armed forces into the next century. The goal was to paint a realistic view of how domestic and international pressures would shape both Beijing's and Taipei's security environment
The army's professional military ethic in an era of persistent conflict by Don M Snider ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This essay offers a proposal for the missing constructs and language with which we can more precisely think about and examine the Army's Professional Military Ethic, starting with its macro context which is the profession's culture. We examine three major long-term influences on that culture and its core ethos, thus describing how they evolve over time. We contend that in the present era of persistent conflict, we are witnessing dynamic changes within these three influences. In order to analyze these changes, we introduce a more detailed framework which divides the Ethic into its legal and moral components, then divide each of these into their institutional and individual manifestations. Turning from description to analysis, we also examine to what extent, if any, recent doctrinal adaptations by the Army (FM 3-0, 3-24, and 6-22, etc.) indicate true evolution in the essential nature of the profession's Ethic. Then, we present what we believe to be the most significant ethical challenge facing the Army profession -- the moral development of Army leaders, moving them from "values to virtues" in order that they, as Army professionals, can consistently achieve the high quality of moral character necessary to apply effectively and, in a trustworthy manner, their renowned military-technical competencies
The Army officers' professional ethic : past, present, and future by Matthew Moten ( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This monograph surveys the history of the Army's professional ethic, focusing primarily on the Army officer corps. It assesses today's strategic, professional, and ethical environment. Then it argues that a clear statement of the Army officers' professional ethic is especially necessary in a time when the Army is stretched and stressed as an institution. The Army officer corps has both a need and an opportunity to better define itself as a profession, forthrightly to articulate its professional ethic, and clearly to codify what it means to be a military professional."--Summary
The effects of multiple deployments on army adolescents by Leonard Wong ( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Multiple deployments have become a way of life for our Soldiers. In Army families, these frequent deployments increase the burden on children who must face the stress and strain of separation and anxiety. The authors take a much-needed, detailed look at the effects of multiple deployments on Army adolescents. The results of this study reinforce some of what we already know concerning deployments and children, but they also reveal some very interesting, counterintuitive findings that challenge the conventional wisdom concerning Army adolescents. This study goes beyond merely explaining the impact 8 years of war is having on the children of our Soldiers; rather, it explores the specific factors that increase or alleviate stress on Army adolescents. The results reveal that Army adolescents, contrary to what many believed, are much more self-aware and resilient. Furthermore, they are capable of understanding the multiple implications of having a parent serve in the all-volunteer Army during a time of war. Army children may experience the anxiety and stress that often surround a parent's deployment, but results conclude that there are factors that policymakers, leaders, and parents can use to increase a child's ability to cope with a life of repeated deployments. In this era of persistent conflict, we should carefully consider such findings
Talent implications for a U.S. Army Officer Corps strategy by Casey Wardynski ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For years, the U.S. Army has given "competency" pride of place in its officer development doctrine. In popular usage, competent means having requisite or adequate ability, and in a labor market context, it is defined as "an enduring combination of characteristics that causes an appropriate level of individual performance." Recent operational experience, however, clearly demonstrates the need for something more than adequate or appropriate individual performance by leaders. In an era of persistent conflict, Army officers must embrace new cultures, serve as ambassadors and diplomats, sow the seeds of economic development and democracy, and in general, rapidly conceptualize solutions to complex and unanticipated problems. These demands require the Army to access, retain, develop, and employ talented officers, not competent ones. This distinction is more than a mere parsing of words. In our view, talent is the intersection of three dimensions -- skills, knowledge, and behaviors -- that create an optimal level of individual performance, provided the individual is employed within his or her talent set. We believe that all people have talent which can be identified and liberated, and that they can dramatically and continuously extend their talent advantage if properly incentivized, developed, and employed. Whether it likes it or not, the Army is competing with the private sector for the best talent America has to offer. The domestic labor market is dynamic, and in the last 25 years it has increasingly demanded employees who can create information, provide service, or add knowledge. We believe that thoughtful, evolutionary changes can produce revolutionary results. The Army can transform its officer management practices from an almost feudal employer-employee relationship to a talent-based model through a series of relatively low-risk efforts
Iraqi power and U.S. security in the Middle East by Stephen C Pelletiere ( Book )
6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study is an examination of the Iraqi defeat of Iran in the 8- year-long Iran-Iraq War and the implications of that outcome on future U.S. Middle East Policy. It concludes that Iraq's achievement in forcing Iran to accept a truce represents an authentic victory attained because the Iraqis planned for and successfully executed complicated, large-scale military operations and shrewdly managed their resources. Iraq appears to have become a formidable military power. Iraq, Iran, Iran-Iraq War, Middle East
Perspectives from Argentina, Brazil, and Colombia by Pedro Villagra Delgado ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is a lack of a common view regarding precisely [beta]What is a threat?[gamma]and [beta]What is security?[gamma] which is the heart of the stability problem in Latin America. These authors acknowledge that the traditional definition of security and threat is no longer completely valid. They understand that a more realistic concept includes the protection of national sovereignty against unconventional internal causes and attackers. They also recognize that a close linkage exists among security, development, and democracy. Nevertheless, they were reluctant to take a broadened definition of national security to its logical conclusion. That is, to correspondingly broaden and integrate the roles of the national security forces into an internal sovereignty protection mission. Colombians now understand that that role is what makes stability, development, nd democracy possible. The security-stability equation in Latin America is extremely volatile and dangerous. In terms of the kind of environment that is essential to the entire North American strategy for the hemisphere, that stability situation is deserving of much more attention than it has had in the recent past

Guide to rebuilding public sector services in stability operations : a role for the military by Derick W Brinkerhoff ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This guide examines the role of restoration of public services within the broader context of stability operations. The extent to which public service reconstruction takes place depends on the mission, the level of resources, and the host country context. This paper provides guidance helpful to U.S. peacekeeping personnel in planning and executing stability operations tasks related to restoration of public sector services and infrastructure. It is designed to supplement existing and emerging guidance, and is specifically relevant to addressing the needs of public sector rebuilding in a post-conflict situation by peacekeeping forces. The material presented here draws both from theory and analytic frameworks and from on-the-ground experience of practitioners
Hamas and Israel conflicting strategies of group-based politics by Sherifa Zuhur ( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This monograph considers the changing fortunes of the Palestinian movement, HAMAS, and the recent outcomes of Israeli strategies aimed against this group and Palestinian nationalism external to the Fatah faction of the Palestinian Authority. The example of HAMAS challenges much of the current wisdom on "insurgencies" and their containment. As the author, Dr. Sherifa Zuhur, demonstrates, efforts have been made to separate HAMAS from its popular support and network of social and charitable organizations. These have not been effective in destroying the organization, nor in eradicating the will to resist among a fairly large segment of the Palestinian population. It is important to consider this Islamist movement in the context of a region-wide phenomenon of similar movements with local goals, which can be persuaded to relinquish violence, or which could move in the opposite direction, becoming more violent. Certainly an orientation to HAMAS and its base must be factored into new and more practical and effective approaches to peacemaking. At the same time, HAMAS offers a fascinating instance of the dynamics of strategic reactions, and the modification of Israeli impulses towards aggressive deterrence, as well as evolution in the Islamist movements' planning and operations. As well, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict bears similarities to a long-standing civil conflict, even as it has sparked inter-Palestinian hostilities in its most recent phase. The need for informed and critical discussion of the future of Islamism in the region continues today. We offer this monograph to those who wish to consider this particular aspect of the Palestinian-Israeli-Arab conflict"--Foreword
China's strategic modernization implications for the United States by Mark A Stokes ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conventional wisdom portrays the People's Republic of China (PRC) People's Liberation Army (PLA) as a backward continental force that will not pose a military challenge to its neighbors or to the United States well into the 21st century. PLA writings that demonstrate interest in exploiting the revolution in military affairs (RMA) are dismissed by a large segment of the PLA-watching community as wistful fantasies. Major Mark A. Stokes, assistant air attache' in Beijing from 1992-1995, offers an alternative perspective. In this study, funded by the United States Air Force Institute for National Security Studies, he outlines emerging PLA operational concepts and a range of research and development projects that appear to have been heavily influenced by U.S. and Russian writings on the RMA. Fulfillment of the PLA's vision for the 21st century could have significant repercussions for U.S. interests in the Asia-Pacific region. Major Stokes ventures into facets of PLA modernization that are often ignored. Backed by extensive documentation, he argues that the revolutionary modernization of the PRC's telecommunications infrastructure, a robust space-, air-, and ground-based sensor network, and prioritization of electronic attack systems could enable the PLA to gain information dominance in future armed conflicts around its periphery. Information dominance would be further boosted by China's traditional emphasis on information denial and deception

China-Russia security relations strategic parallelism without partnership or passion? by Richard Weitz ( )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For almost 2 decades, China and Russia have been strengthening their security ties. Nonetheless, as this monograph makes clear, the relationship between Beijing and Moscow remains in flux. In some cases, they share overlapping interests. In other instances, they compete for power and wealth, particularly for oil and gas resources. Many factors will affect Sino-Russian ties? including developments within China and Russia as well as external events. As part of this mix, American policies will also have some impact on the future foreign behavior of both countries. -- Foreword
Reviewing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty ( )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As currently interpreted, it is difficult to see why the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) warrants much support as a nonproliferation convention. Most foreign ministries, including that of Iran and the United States, insist that Article IV of the NPT recognizes all states' "inalienable right" of all states to develop "peaceful nuclear energy". This includes money-losing activities, such as nuclear fuel reprocessing, which can bring countries to the very brink of acquiring nuclear weapons. If the NPT is intended to ensure that states share peaceful "benefits" of nuclear energy and to prevent the spread of nuclear bomb making technologies, it is difficult to see how it can accomplish either if the interpretation identified above is correct."--P. 3
