Perspectives on international security : speeches and papers from the 50th anniversary year of the International Institute for Strategic Studies by Tim Huxley( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like most years in the 50-year history of the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), 2008 saw events that could have significant consequences for international relations and global balances of power. These included the election of Barack Obama as US president; the brief war in Georgia, which caused the West to look at Russia with more watchful eyes; and a cataclysmic crisis in the world's financial markets that seemed to threaten globalisation and even capitalism, and to herald a period of greater economic austerity." "Even as these events occurred, the security issues and risks that have been the core focus of the work of the IISS during the past half-century continued to loom large, among them nuclear proliferation and the relations between the major powers. In addition to these perennial themes was another set of issues that has in recent times risen higher on the international security agenda, including the security ramifications of natural disasters and environmental dangers such as climate change." "In its anniversary year, the IISS held several high-level conferences around the world. Speeches given at these events addressed all of these issues, and this Adelphi Paper offers a selection of them. The speakers were statesmen, senior military officers, high officials and international security experts. All were concerned first and foremost with the pressing issues of the moment, as their duties required them to be. But the fact that they also addressed recurrent themes testifies to the enduring nature of the strategic challenges faced by policymakers."--Jacket
Strategic survey 2011 : the annual review of world affairs( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year to mid-2011, the pace of history quickened. Strategic Survey 2011: The Annual Review of World Affairs includes a special chapter on the Arab Awakening, in which protests against autocratic rule spread like wildfire across the Arab world, toppling the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt and bringing conflict elsewhere. An earthquake and tsunami killed thousands in Japan, and triggered the worst nuclear accident for 25 years. As war dragged on in Afghanistan, Western leaders agreed on a plan to withdraw from combat. A daring raid into Pakistan by American special forces killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden but caused fury in Islamabad. Meanwhile, the high level of food prices caused mounting concern, as did the provocative military actions of the North Korean regime. Chinaʹs economy, military power and global influence continued to expand. -- Publisher description
