Partnership for the Americas : Western Hemisphere strategy and U.S. Southern Command by James Stavridis ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Admiral James G. Stavridis, USN, reflects on his tenure as Commander of United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). The first Admiral to command Southern Command, Admiral Stavridis broke with tradition from day one, discarding the customary military staff model and creating an innovative organization designed not solely to subdue adversaries, but... to build durable and lasting partnerships. From his unique perspective as commander, Stavridis uses his personal style to describe his vision for the command's role in the Americas, making most of limited resources to create goodwill and mutual respect, while countering illegal drug trafficking, overcoming a dangerous insurgency in Colombia, and responding to humanitarian crises. He devotes chapters to USSOUTHCOM's role in nurturing institutional respect for human rights among military and security forces of the region, advancing health security, and supporting a new regional strategy to counter the increasing challenge of urban and transnational gang violence. Citing the hemisphere's common geography, culture, economy, and history, Stavridis makes a case for a common approach and strategy for defending our "shared home of the Americas" through an international, interagency, and private-public approach, all connected through coherent effective strategic communication--Publisher's description
Skin in the game : partnership in establishing and maintaining global security and stability by Jeffery E Marshall ( )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[This] book ... provides a detailed analysis of what we need to do to effectively build and sustain enduring partnerships, examines our current state, and provides a roadmap with specific, actionable recommendations to strengthen our processes and employ a holistic joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational approach to partnerships. Two of the insights that I think we often miss are that our partners have a say in the process and that we need to manage the process as an integrated portfolio and make investment/reinvestment decisions based upon capability objectives that we and our partners agree upon. The U.S. military simply cannot engage alone. Partnership must be planned and executed in order to set meaningful objectives as well as to synchronize available resources to achieve them

Command at sea by William P Mack ( Book )
5 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First published in 1943, this book has long been the key resource for U.S. Navy officers preparing for command at sea. This sixth edition reflects the sweeping changes that have occurred over the past decade in the mechanics of how command at sea is executed and the context in which commanding officers work. Among these changes are the adoption of a new maritime strategy that identifies maritime security and humanitarian assistance as core competencies, a post 9/11 environment in which maritime intercept operations and irregular warfare are key, the rise of piracy, increasing joint and combined operations, the growing capacity to share information, and the modernization of the fleet. An expanded discussion of the submarine-related aspects of command is also included."--Publisher's description

The Second Revolution ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A paradox is emerging as the revolution in military affairs (RMA) moves ahead: the larger the magnitude of the revolution, the greater the possible long-term advantage to a potential enemy. Why? The answer lies in the second revolution. The system of systems--a complete architecture of detection, selection, display, targeting, and attack--will revolutionize war. Related; advances information warfare will complement and enhance the progress made in the first revolution. We will adjust and integrate these developments with new organizations, doctrine, and tactics, techniques, and procedures, many of which will be integrated into the Armed Forces by early in the next century, and other industrialized nations will gradually follow suit. Indeed, some components are already entering service, and others are being aggressively purchased, programmed and researched. Both doctrine and operational concepts are undergoing study and change. Joint Vision 2010 makes it clear the we are on the leading edge of this first revolution, evolving the military for a "challenging and uncertain future." We are moving into the first revolution

Stronger together by James Stavridis ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Admiral James G. Stavridis, Supreme Allied Commander Europe and Commander U.S. European Command, discusses the connections between the United States and Europe and why those connections are profoundly important to us as a nation. Focuses on a group of main concerns: declining population in Europe, Afghanistan, the coalition in the Balkans, Russia, cyber warfare, Iran, terrorism on European targets, piracy on the high seas, and the narcotic trade (particularly heroin which comes 90% from Afghanistan). Stavridis emphasizes that it is necessary for the U.S. and NATO to be militarily strong, but it is equally or more important to "launch ideas." He urges his audience to learn diverse languages, to study cultures, and most of all to read whether fiction or nonfiction
An Intelligent Theater ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Operationally, the U.S. military is essentially organized geographically. The world is divided into six combatant commands with wide-ranging responsibility for Department of Defense (DOD) activity across a defined theater. At U.S. European Command, for example, our area of focus is the 51 countries that make up the European continent, stretching from the Bay of Biscay in the Atlantic Ocean to the far Pacific shores of Russia. Our area runs from the Mediterranean to the North Pole, and includes Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Israel outside of Europe. It is an area with close to 800 million people, more than 10,000 nuclear weapons, and the most powerful collection of armed forces and the highest gross domestic product among the half-dozen combatant commands. We are, of course, enormous consumers of intelligence. Our dedicated intelligence apparatus runs above 1,800 people, all focused on our particular theater of operations. Yet I often ask myself the question, and no pun is intended: Is this the most intelligent way to organize ourselves in the area of intelligence? I think we can save resources, operate more efficiently, and provide commanders at the theater level and below better intelligence by organizing ourselves better. As we look into the next decade, expending the time and energy to rethink the shape of theater intelligence structures and organizations is an investment worth making. Balancing analytic agility needed to support commanders against their demands to enable operational forces puts our defense intelligence enterprise on the horns of a dilemma: where and how should it create analytic agility and at the same time maintain functional alignment over the long haul? The key is agility: we should apply some of the principles of special operations to our theater intelligence approach

Whatever Happened to the "War on Drugs"? ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
At U.S. Southern Command, we work to develop strategically important partnerships throughout the region for source-country drug control programs and interdiction. The primary aim of these efforts has been to limit the availability of illicit drugs such as cocaine to drive up prices and discourage use. This is hard and important work, done at a very reasonable cost. Consider it a hedge to ensure that our Latin American and Caribbean neighbors remain friends and partners with whom we will continue to engage productively and sensibly. Clearly, the drug threat to the United States is of enormous size and importance. It needs to be treated as such through a variety of solutions. Much of the work to be done is on the demand side, and there is a wide variety of policy ideas out there to address demand. On the supply side, there is much that can be done with producing nations to discourage growth and processing. Our focus in the military on detection and monitoring is likewise a part of the solution set. We should devote more resources to the problem of drugs in every dimension -- demand, supply, and interdiction. With a land and air border that extends over 7,500 miles, a maritime exclusive economic zone encompassing 3.4 million square miles, a vast number of people admitted into the United States every year, more than 11 million trucks and 2 million rail cars crossing our borders, and 7,500 foreign-flag ships making 51,000 calls in U.S. ports every year, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the drug challenge -- if we think sequentially and in isolation. But together, we can think, act, and work in parallel to solve the dilemma by building partnerships that keep our borders open to legitimate trade and travel, while reducing the threat of drugs throughout our society
