Mismanaging mayhem how Washington responds to crisis by James Jay Carafano( )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mismanaging Mayhem is written at the undergraduate level. It is suitable for college electives courses related to national security, homeland security, government affairs, political science, defense matters, and international relations at both civilian universities and professional military schools. In addition, it appeals to a general audience interested in history and public policy. Given that the debate over interagency reform and interest in this subject is likely to swell in the years ahead with Congressional hearings and legislation to institute government reform the book should have a solid audience for some time
Waltzing into the Cold War the struggle for occupied Austria by James Jay Carafano( )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,249 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."--BOOK JACKET

Wiki at war conflict in a socially networked world by James Jay Carafano( )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,020 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

Maritime security fighting piracy in the Gulf of Aden and beyond by James Jay Carafano( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Heritage Foundation's Maritime Security Working Group -- composed of representatives from academia, the private sector, research institutions, and government -- produces cutting-edge policy recommendations for making the seas safer for the United States, its friends and allies, and global commerce. The fourth occasional report by the group addressing the most pressing issues confronting maritime security examines the issue of piracy in the Gulf of Aden and the appropriate U.S. response. This report Describes the threat of piracy to global commerce and the safety and security of ships transiting the Gulf of Aden; Addresses domestic and international legal aspects of responding to piracy and other criminal acts at sea; Proposes the appropriate mix of private-sector and U.S. military responses to piracy, including long-term investments in constabulary maritime assets; Recommends solutions for improving the capacity of regional powers to protect freedom of the seas; and Outlines a strategy for dealing with the "root" of the problem, which is lack of governance in Somalia. Though the report's proposals are focused on the Gulf of Aden, they have implications for combating piracy worldwide. Since 2003, piracy has been reported off the coasts of Bangladesh, Nigeria, Brazil, and Peru. Raising levels of piracy off the coast of East Africa, however, could be a precursor to a new global trend. The recent successes of the Somali pirates may empower and inspire other groups. The frequency and level of violence from piracy acts could increase. Within the last month, there were two attacks in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and a coastal tanker was hijacked off the coast of Colombia. While the appropriate response for each threat must be tempered by local conditions, the solutions and instruments for responsible action in the Gulf of Aden will hold lessons for meeting the challenge of piracy in other parts of the world
