Transforming U.S. intelligence by Jennifer E Sims( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transforming U.S. Intelligence supports the mandate of the new director of national intelligence by offering both careful analysis of existing strengths and weaknesses in U.S. intelligence and specific recommendations on how to fix its problems without harming its strengths. These recommendations, based on intimate knowledge of the way U.S. intelligence actually works, include suggestions for the creative mixing of technologies with new missions to bring about the transformation of U.S. intelligence without incurring unnecessary harm or expense. The goal is the creation of an intelligence community that can rapidly respond to developments in international politics, such as the emergence of nimble terrorist networks while reconciling national security requirements with the rights and liberties of American citizens
Immortal : a military history of Iran and its armed forces by Steven R Ward( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the only single-volume English-language survey of Iran's military history. The book describes Iran's soldiers, from the famed "Immortals" of ancient Persia to today's Revolutionary Guard, from the founding of ancient Persia's empire through the Iran-Iraq War and up to the present. Using newly declassified documents, the author gives primary focus to the modern era and shows that even with the military collapsing during the Islamic revolution they came back from the ashes and became a major regional military power once again

Vaults, mirrors, and masks : rediscovering U.S. counterintelligence by Jennifer E Sims( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Decision makers matching wits with an adversary want intelligence -- good, relevant information to help them win. Intelligence can gain these advantages through directed research and analysis, agile collection, and the timely use of guile and theft. Counterintelligence is the art and practice of defeating these endeavors ... In one indispensable volume, top practitioners and scholars in the field explain the importance of counterintelligence today and explore the causes of -- and practical solutions for -- U.S. counterintelligence weaknesses. These experts stress the importance of developing a sound strategic vision in order to improve U.S. counterintelligence and emphasize the challenges posed by technological change, confused purposes, political culture, and bureaucratic rigidity."--Page 4 of cover
Peace operations : trends, progress, and prospects by Donald C Daniel( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trends in the number and scope of peace operations since 2000 evidence heightened international appreciation for their value in crisis-response and regional stabilization. Peace Operations: Trends, Progress, and Prospects addresses national and institutional capacities to undertake such operations, by going beyond what is available in previously published literature. Part one focuses on developments across regions and countries. It builds on data-gathering projects undertaken at Georgetown University's Center for Peace and Security Studies (CPASS), the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), and the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) that offer new information about national contributions to operations and about the organizations through which they make those contributions. The information provides the bases for arriving at unique insights about the characteristics of contributors and about the division of labor between the United Nations and other international entities. Part two looks to trends and prospects within regions and nations. Unlike other studies that focus only on regions with well-established track records -- specifically Europe and Africa -- this book also looks to the other major areas of the world and poses two questions concerning them: If little or nothing has been done institutionally in a region, why not? What should be expected? This groundbreaking volume will help policymakers and academics understand better the regional and national factors shaping the prospects for peace operations into the next decade. -- Publisher's Description

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The national security enterprise : navigating the labyrinth by Roger Z George( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second edition of The National Security Enterprise provides practitioners' insights into the operation, missions, and organizational cultures of the principal national security agencies and other significant institutions that shape the US national security decision-making process. Unlike some textbooks on American foreign policy, this book provides analysis from insiders who have worked at the National Security Council, the State Department, Department of Defense, the intelligence community, and the other critical entities included in the book. The book explains how organizational missions and cultures create the labyrinth in which a coherent national security policy must be fashioned. Understanding and appreciating these organizations and their cultures is essential for formulating and implementing coherent policies. This second edition includes four new chapters (Congress, DHS, Treasury, and USAID) and updates to the text throughout. It covers the many changes instituted by the Obama administration, implications of the government campaign to prosecute leaks, and lessons learned from more than a decade of war in Afghanistan and Iraq

Transforming U.S. intelligence( Recording )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The intelligence failures exposed by the events of 9/11 and the missing weapons of mass destruction in Iraq have made one thing perfectly clear: change is needed in how the U.S. intelligence community operates. [This book] presents the argument that transforming intelligence requires as much a look to the future as to the past and a focus more on the art and practice of intelligence than on its bureaucratic arrangements. In fact, while the recent restructuring, including the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, may solve some problems, it has also created new ones. The authors of this volume agree that transforming policies and practices will be the most effective way to tackle future challenges facing the nation's security. http://www.booksinprint.com
