Latin America between the Second World War and the Cold War, 1944-1948 by Leslie Bethell( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this volume is to establish that the period between the end of the Second World War and the beginning of the Cold War (1944-5 to 1947-8), hitherto neglected, represents an important conjuncture in the political and social history of Latin America in the twentieth century. The volume contains, besides an introduction and a conclusion by the editors, case studies of eleven of the twenty Latin American republics. Despite differences of political regime, different levels of economic and social development, and different relations with the region's hegemonic power - the United States - there are striking similarities in the experiences of the majority of the Latin American republics in this period. For most of Latin America it can be divided into two phases. The first, coinciding with the Allied victory in the Second World War, was characterized by three distinct but interrelated phenomena: democratization, with a relatively high level of middle-class and working-class participation; a shift to the Left, both communist and noncommunist; and unprecedented labor militancy. In the second phase, coinciding with the onset of the Cold War and completed almost everywhere by 1948, labor was disciplined by the state and in many cases excluded from politics; communist parties almost everywhere suffered proscription and severe repression; reformist, "progressive" parties moved to the Right - the democratic advance was for the most part contained, and in some cases reversed. An opportunity, however limited, for significant political and social change, as well as for the first steps perhaps toward a Latin American version of social democracy, was lost. Instead, the institutional and ideological foundations were laid for Latin America's postwar "model" of economic growth without equity within a context of, at best, fragile and intermittent democracy
Unions and politics in Mexico : the case of the automobile industry by Ian Roxborough( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The orthodox view of Mexican history asserts that the political stability and rapid economic growth of the post-war period were due inter alia to state control over the labour movement. On the evidence of his extensive research in Mexico between 1977 and 1982, Ian Roxborough challenges this conventional wisdom, arguing that control over Mexican unions has been more fragile and problematic than appears at first sight. Taking the car industry as a case study, he discusses the upsurge of industrial militancy in the 1970s and explores
The Hart-Rudman Commission and the homeland defense by Ian Roxborough( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the exception of attacks by ballistic missiles, the continental United States was long held to be virtually immune from attack. For Americans, wars were something that took place in other countries. In the future, that may not hold. But while strategic thinkers agree that homeland defense needs greater attention, there is less consensus on the precise nature of the threat. The author disagrees with the commonly-held assumption that the main threat to the American homeland will come from terrorism inspired by U.S. leadership of globalization. He contends that the architects of the American strategy for homeland defense need a broader perspective that includes a wide range of existing or potential threats."--Summary

Revising the two MTW force shaping paradigm( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important elements of U.S. military strategy for the past 10 years has been the belief that a force able to fight two nearly simultaneous major theater wars of the DESERT STORM type would be capable of dealing with the full gamut of security challenges that the United States is likely to face. These essays from a wide range of scholars, analysts, government officials, and uniformed thinkers represent their views of the question of a force shaping paradigm for the U.S. military. They vary widely on assumptions, analytical parameters, and recommendations

Which Way to the Future?( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Armed Forces are at a crossroads. There has been vigorous debate since the Cold War over the nature of future war. This article identifies four major positions in that debate and argues that each represents not only a possible future, but a likely one. The sign at the crossroads points in four directions and the future lies each way. No wonder the controversy seems inconclusive. Debates on future wars and other military operations are usually set against the inherited (or legacy) image of war. Proponents of various persuasions argue that a particular scenario portends the future. They usually contend with conservatives who they cast as unwilling to change rapidly enough to prepare for their view of the future. The argument is about which future to prepare for. The argument that there is only one likely future leads to premature closure and narrowing of options as force planners and doctrinal scribes sense the pressure to translate hazy guesses into concrete designs. Accordingly, this article argues that one should recognize that multiple futures are possible and likely to occur simultaneously. Moreover, the future will not be one-dimensional, but rather multidimensional. How should we prepare for these multiple futures? The four positions on the future currently being debated in defense circles can be identified as systemic war, cyber war, peace war, and dirty war. To them must be added the legacy position, or mechanical war. Mechanical war characterizes the recent past of the Armed Forces. It conceives of war as a clash of massed and tactical air, with deep strikes to weaken enemy will, along the lines of Operation Desert Storm. The four images of war are described and then plotted along two dimensions: high/low technology and hard/soft power. The goal should not be to create a military after next, but rather four militaries after next, corresponding to four visible futures. (2 figures, 8 photographs)
