"Homeland Security is the definitive guide to understanding, preventing, and surviving terrorism.

Soldiers are our credentials : the collected works and selected papers of the thirty-third Chief of Staff, United States Army by Dennis J Reimer( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contains the "raw material" of history-private papers, outlines, rough drafts, and e-mail correspondence prepared by General Dennis J. Reimer during his tenure as Army chief of staff. His collected works provide a useful and reliable starting point for exploring his thoughts and ideas on the major events and issues that occurred while in office from 1995 to 1999. For this reason, James Jay Carafano has selected those papers with the greatest historical significance and organized them chronologically to reveal both the unfolding events and the recurring themes so central to what Reimer calls strategic communications-being clear, focused, and consistent when communicating to the soldiers in the field, to Congress, and to the American people

Waltzing into the Cold War : the struggle for occupied Austria by James Jay Carafano( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As U.S. troops marched into vanquished Austria at the end of World War II, they faced the dual tasks of destroying the remnants of Nazi power and establishing a new democratic nation. The military was adept at the first task; it was woefully unprepared for the second. These halting efforts, complicated by the difficulties of managing the occupation along with Britain, France, and the Soviet Union, exacerbated an already monumental undertaking and fueled the looming Cold War confrontation between East and West." "In this first English-language study of secret postwar U.S. military operations during the occupation of Austria and of the American effort to create a garrison state for NATO's defense, James Jay Carafano traces U.S. policy and behavior from the end of the war until 1955 and the signing of the treaty that finally led to the withdrawal of the occupation forces. From the very beginning of American presence, he demonstrates, the U.S. Army could not wean itself from the operational habits it had forged in war, practices that skewed U.S. postwar foreign policy while earning Austrian resentment and Soviet mistrust. The fog of peace, he concludes, befuddled U.S. planners."--Jacket

Wiki at war : conflict in a socially networked world by James Jay Carafano( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2011, amid the popular uprising against Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, the government sought in vain to shut down the Internet-based social networks of its people. WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange has been branded "public enemy number one" by some in the United States for posting material on the World Wide Web that concerns airstrikes in Iraq, US diplomatic communications, and other sensitive matters. In Wiki at War, James Jay Carafano explains why these and other Internet-born initiatives matter and how they are likely to affect the future face of war, diplomacy, and domestic politics. "The war for winning dominance over social networks and using that dominance to advantage is already underway," Carafano writes in this extremely timely analysis of the techno-future of information and the impact of social networking via the Internet. Drawing on his extensive knowledge of history and defense strategy, Carafano creates a cogent analysis of what is truly new about the "new media," and what is simply a recasting of human warfare in contemporary forms. Wiki at War is written in a lively, accessible style that will make this technological development comprehensible and engaging for general readers without sacrificing the book's usefulness to specialists. Outlining the conditions under which a difference in degree becomes a difference in kind, detailing how ancient wisdom can still apply to national security decisions, and examining the conditions under which new expertise is required to wage effective diplomacy or successful military strategy, Carafano casts in stark relief the issues that face political, military, and social leaders in trying to manage and control information, in both the international and domestic arenas. Wiki at War affords stimulating thought about and definitive discussion of this vital emerging topic

Imaging the future : institutional factors affecting postwar occupation operations in Austria, 1943-1945 by James Jay Carafano( Book )

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

This paper examines through a case study the occupation of Austria, how institutional habits influenced preparation for the conduct of peacekeeping and post-conflict operations after World War II. The U.S. Army had a long history of conducting post-conflict occupation duties going back to the American Revolution. This knowledge, however, was never incorporated into doctrine, military education, and professional development programs or reinforced in the Army's memory through its honors and traditions. The service's hectic wartime preparations reflected this powerful habit of forgetting and applying as few resources as possible to thinking and preparing for occupation duties until these tasks were at hand. When American forces did undertake postwar missions they tried, as much as possible, to make them mirror traditional military activities. This paper concludes that experiences, memory, traditions, warfighting doctrine, common perceptions, and the routine practices that the American Army carried into battle were the principle influences guiding the U.S. approach to occupation
