NATO in 2000 by Joseph L Sites( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATO's continued existence in its present form into the 21st century will depend on developments in a number of areas. By highlighting these areas of concern, this paper indicates measures which should be taken to shape our future role in the Alliance. NATO's existence has been based on the preservation of Western institutions and the provision of national security. These interests provide the foundation for NATO. However, a number of current issues and interests will have a bearing on the direction NATO takes in the future. Some of these are the strategy to provide European security; the perceived threat; Euro-communism; energy; separatism; terrorism; arms control; the Greece-Turkey problem; and member nations' economies. These issues will affect the perceived need for the Alliance and the ability of its members to support NATO into the next century. From them, a basis for an alternative to NATO may emerge. (Author)

Poverty - a source of conflict by Army War College (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Futures Group paper analyses poverty as a source of conflict both now and in the future. The author does not contend that poor countries are likely to attack richer ones for the spoils of war, but rather that poverty is a breeding ground for instability.

Futures Group Periodic Report-3( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During this period the Futures Group continued to evaluate the Third World as a source of conflict and began evaluation of several activities and conditions which could also be sources of conflict. In view of the emphasis on the establishment of the Rapid Development Joint Task Force and the large number of possible conflicts, it seems appropriate to continue with the consideration of the suitability of the use of force in different kinds of conflicts and where suitable the kind of force required. This consideration or study should lead to the production of papers on suitability of use of force and kinds of force required to cope with possible conflicts identified in papers on sources of conflict. A tentative selection of elements of national power has been made. Those presently being considered are: Geography, Industrial Capacity, Population, Character, Morale, Quality of Diplomacy, Quality of Government. Once the basic document is produced there would be an ongoing requirement to update the document and it appears that there would be a requirement to produce analyses of areas within the designated areas. This report contains a summary of reviews of Alvin Toffler's book The Third Wave and provides some implications for the Army. Future directions of research are also noted
