Decoding the virtual dragon by Timothy L Thomas( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work expands on "Dragon Bytes", the author's earlier work on Chinese information warfare (IW) activities from 1999-2003. It explains how Chinese IW concepts since 2003 fit into the strategic outlook practices, and activities of the People's Liberation Army (PLA). It offers IW explanations directly from the pens of Chinese experts. The Chinese authors discuss the application or relation of IW to strategic thought, the transformation plans of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), the revolution in military affairs (RMA), and the revolution in knowledge warfare and cognition

Strategic planning and the drug threat by William W Mendel( )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The primary purpose of this publication is to show how the principles and techniques of strategic and operational planning can be applied to the supply reduction side of our national effort to curb the trafficking of illicit drugs. An earlier version was published in 1991 which introduced campaign planning methodology as a means to help bridge the gap existing between the policy and strategy documents of higher echelons and the tactical plans developed at the field level. These campaign planning principles, formats, and examples of operational level techniques have been retained and updated for use as models for current interagency actions. This expanded edition provides a more detailed overview of the drug problem in the opening chapter and adds a new chapter devoted to strategy--what are the key ingredients and how is an effective strategy formulated? The United States is at a critical juncture in its campaign to eliminate the rampant drug problem. Past gains are in danger of being lost. Recent trends suggest a resurgence in illicit drug use and that younger and younger Americans are falling prey to the drug pusher
The new great game Chinese views on Central Asia : Central Asia regional security issues, economic and political challenges by Central Asia Symposium "The New Great Game--Chinese Views on Central Asia"( )

The CINCs' strategies the combatant command process by William W Mendel( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors report their observations of the different ways combatant commanders-in-chief (CINCs) produce a strategy document, and suggest that new joint doctrine is needed to bring a degree of regularity and orderliness to the CINCs' strategic planning process. The CINCs' Strategies: The Combatant Command Process provides a brief look at the CINCs' strategy objectives and concepts in order to place the planning process in context. The focus of the study, however, is on the process itself as it exists and could be further developed. With our National Security and National Military Strategies so clearly directed toward shaping the international environment, effectively responding to crises, and preparing for major theater warfare and smaller-scale operations, the unified actions of our joint forces can be greatly enhanced by joint doctrine which guides military planning for the strategic level of war

The dragon's quantum leap : transforming from a mechanized to an informatized force by Timothy L Thomas( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chinese observations of warfare in the information age have resulted in a widespread transformation and metamorphosis of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) from a mechanized to an informatized force. This transformation has affected nearly every aspect of China's military from strategy to logistics to educational development. This book intends to peel back the transformation process and uncover the impact of new modes of thought on several key segments of military development (culture, strategems, crisis management, deception, and reconnaissance among other elements) that digital age thought is affecting
Recasting the red star : Russia forges tradition and technology through toughness by Timothy L Thomas( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The metaphor "recasting the red star" emphasizes the changing nature of Russia's military which still relishes its legacy. For nearly a century, the Red Star has been a symbol of Russia's armed forces, which are still regaining their strength as they emerge from the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Despite failed reform initiatives, and Russia's two wars fought against Chechen extremists and the war fought against Georgia over South Ossetia, the military is advancing and modernizing. Its weaponry and equipment updates represent responses to the perceived impact of information-age technologies on military affairs. Russia's military leaders have integrated these digital processes into their operational art and strategic planning. Further, they've reorganized the military and launched a serious campaign against corruption in the force. This book tracks the modernization through three threads of tradition, technology, and toughness, with the latter thread represented by the staunch support that President Dmitriy Medvedev, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, and Defense Minister Anatoliy Serdyukov have provided the reform effort
Winning insurgent war : back to basics by Geoff Demarest( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
While irregular warfare has emerged as the most prevalent form of warfare in the 21st century, studying the spectrum of conflict and how principles of war apply across that spectrum, requires an unconventional approach. In this work, the author challenges military leaders to dispense with clichés and get back to basics: to establish attainable goals, tied to achievable tasks and to obtainable resources, to ensure a victorious outcome

Property & peace : insurgency, strategy and the Statute of Frauds by Geoff Demarest( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The success of a society depends on formal, liberal property regimes. The West's property regimes are successful because of the high quality of evidence of everyday rights, the capacity of citizenry and governments to implement the meaning of that evidence, and because the basic rules which determine what can be owned and who can be owners are liberal in measure appropriate to the common understanding of justice. Formalized property information feeds conflict resolution mechanisms by clearly identifying owners, claimants, rights and duties; creates stakeholders willing to support the rule of law; produces landowners who are less inclined to engage in illegal behavior because they risk forfeiture; and the records associated with formal property provide a powerful forensic tool with which to support peaceful conflict resolution processes, restitution programs, and bring violators to justice. Outside the lines of formal property lies possession by force. The gamut of societal choices is few - formal property, internal violence, or tyranny. People should not be led to choose tyranny over violence because the condition of formal property has not been offered. This book argues that the quality of foreign real-property systems be made a priority issue in US thinking and strategy. A polity that does not formalize ownership rights and duties, especially to land, will not enjoy peace. Comprehensive, precise and transparent expression of real property is a necessary precondition of peace. If by success of a society we mean parallel improvement in freedom, material prosperity and social peace, then construction of formal, liberal property regimes and land-use systems is as important as elections or prosecuting human rights violators. The process of formalizing property, moreover, illuminates power and power relationships. It also exposes the otherwise invisible lines of communication and sanctuary that power over places provides."--Abstract
