Energy developments in the Middle East by Anthony H Cordesman ( )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Middle Eastern and North African region (MENA) dominates world energy exports today and will likely do so for decades to come, even if world consumers make steady progress in conservation, renewable energy sources, and increases from gas, coal, and nuclear power. The MENA region, however, has been the scene of birth internal crises and external conflicts. On several occasions, these crises have affected either the flow of MENA energy exports or the development of energy production and export capacity. The politics, economics, and social dynamics that shape threats to regional stability are complex. Cordesman details the factors behind these diverse forces and outlines current supply levels and future trends, taking each of these variables into consideration."--BOOK JACKET
Modernization, democracy, and Islam by Shireen Hunter ( )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Islamic world has a poor record in terms of modernization and democracy. However, the source of this situation is not religion, but factors including colonialism, international economic and trading systems, and the role of the military, among others. Recognizing these themes allows the consideration of possible remedies for change in the Muslim world
Sendero Luminoso and the threat of narcoterrorism by Gabriela Tarazona-Sevillano ( )
4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sendero Luminoso or the "Shining Path" ranks among the most elusive, secretive, and brutal guerrilla organizations in the world. Once a radical uprising limited to the Andean highlands of Ayacucho, it is now a movement of national proportions that has woven itself into the fabric of Peruvian society. This book provides a comprehensive overview of this guerrilla organization and the Peruvian government's dilemma in dealing with it and the emergence of "narcoterrorism," a mutually beneficial relationship between the cocaine syndicate and Sendero Luminoso

Salvaging American defense the challenge of strategic overstretch by Anthony H Cordesman ( )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From grassroots terrorism to the nuclear ambitions of hostile nations, the United States faces increasingly complex threats to its national security, and combating these threats continues to demand a reshaping of the nation's security structure, military forces, and defense expenditures. In this study, Anthony Cordesman offers a detailed analysis of critical challenges affecting U.S. national security and how failures in adapting to these challenges have exacerbated the strains on available resources. He systematically identifies the most glaring obstacles to successful national security planning and proposes constructive and practical ways to proceed in the future. Cordesman focuses on 10 specific challenges addressed within the context of the Iraq War, Afghan War, War on Terrorism, and the risk of conflict over the Taiwan Strait. Out of the lessons drawn from these experiences, he examines the future of international coalitions, asymmetric warfare, nation building, and stability operations, and concludes that perhaps the most pressing area for change is the need for accountability among civilian and military policymakers."--Publisher's website
Saudi Arabia national security in a troubled region by Anthony H Cordesman ( )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's strategic importance is driven by two key factors: religion and petroleum. It is the location of Islam's two most important holy places and the scene of Islam's annual pilgrimage. It plays an important role in the lives of over 1.6 billion Muslims, of which only roughly 15 percent are Arab. At a time when religion is a critical factor in global politics, the fact that the King of Saudi Arabia is called the "custodian of the two mosques" is not merely a title. Saudi Arabia's moderate regime is a key player in limiting the growth of extremism and terrorism. Religion and oil, however, are only two aspects of Saudi security. The fall of Saddam Hussein, and the destruction of Iraq's conventional military forces, has left a power vacuum in the northern Gulf that Iran is actively seeking to exploit. Saudi Arabia is the only country that is large enough and strong enough to underpin any regional security structure in the southern Gulf. It is the one southern Gulf country that can provide strategic depth to the other, smaller southern Gulf States-- which are minutes or seconds of flight time from Iran, and whose forces are far too small to defend themselves by acting alone
Japan's security strategy in the post-9/11 world embracing a new realpolitik by Daniel M Kliman ( )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, Daniel Kliman argues that the years following September 11, 2001, have marked a turning point in Japan's defense strategy. Utilizing poll data from Japanese newspapers as well as extensive interview material, Kliman chronicles the erosion of normative and legal restraints on Tokyo's security policy. In particular, he notes that both Japanese elites and the general public increasingly view national security from a realpolitik perspective. Japan's more realpolitik orientation has coincided with a series of precedent-breaking defense initiatives. Tokyo deployed the Maritime Self-Def
South Africa twelve perspectives on the transition by Helen A Kitchen ( )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Following the format of the first volume South Africa: In Transition to What? (1988), each of the chapters in this second volume focuses on a specific segment or segments of the jigsaw puzzle from which South Africa's future will be assembled, and is datelined to emphasize how the situation, event, or issue being addressed appeared through a particular set of lenses at a particular time in what is likely to be a prolonged transition. The volume seeks to impress upon readers (especially Americans) that the post-apartheid South Africa now in the process of emerging will be determined primarily b
Breaking the phalanx a new design for landpower in the 21st century by Douglas A Macgregor ( )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work proposes the reorganization of America's ground forces on the strategic, operational and tactical levels. Central to the proposal is the simple thesis that the U.S. Army must take control of its future by exploiting the emerging revolution in military affairs. The analysis argues that a new Army warfighting organization will not only be more deployable and effective in Joint operations; reorganized information age ground forces will be significantly less expensive to operate, maintain, and modernize than the Army's current Cold War division-based organizations. And while ground force

Arab-Israeli military forces in an era of asymmetric wars by Anthony H Cordesman ( )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,081 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Arab-Israeli balance now consists of two subordinate balances: Israel versus Syria and Israel versus the Palestinians. This book analyzes these two balances and their impact on defense planning in each country and on the overall strategic risk to the whole region. It covers military developments in each of six states--Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine--and provides and analytical view of how the changing natures of the military and political threats faced by each is impacting its military force readiness and development. The roles of Hezbollah, Hamas, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are analyzed in light of the changing political landscape in both Israel and Palestine. Finally, the book explores the ways that internal instability in Lebanon could escalate into regional conflict.--Publisher's description
