Knowing the enemy : jihadist ideology and the War on Terror by Mary R Habeck( )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 3,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After September 11, Americans agonized over why nineteen men hated the United States enough to kill three thousand civilians in an unprovoked assault. Analysts have offered a wide variety of explanations for the attack, but the one voice missing is that of the terrorists themselves. This penetrating book is the first to present the inner logic of al-Qa'ida and like-minded extremist groups by which they justify September 11 and other terrorist attacks. Mary Habeck explains that these extremist groups belong to a new movement--known as jihadism--with a specific ideology based on the thought of Muhammad ibn Abd al- Wahhab, Hasan al-Banna, and Sayyid Qutb. Jihadist ideology contains new definitions of the unity of God and of jihad, which allow members to call for the destruction of democracy and the United States and to murder innocent men, women, and children. Habeck also suggests how the United States might defeat the jihadis, using their own ideology against them. [from Publisher description]
Storm of steel : the development of armor doctrine in Germany and the Soviet Union, 1919-1939 by Mary R Habeck( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 1,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this fascinating account of the battle tanks that saw combat in the European Theater of World War II, Mary R. Habeck traces the strategies developed between the wars for the use of armored vehicles in battle. Only in Germany and the Soviet Union were truly original armor doctrines (generally known as "blitzkrieg" and "deep battle") fully implemented. Storm of Steel relates how the German and Soviet armies formulated and chose to put into practice doctrines that were innovative for the time, yet in many respects identical to one another."--Jacket
Spain betrayed : the Soviet Union in the Spanish Civil War by Ronald Radosh( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 1,146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Spain Betrayed provides full documentation of the Soviets' activities during the Spanish Civil War. Documents in the book reveal that the Soviet Union not only swindled the Spanish Republic out of millions of dollars through arms deals but also sought to take over and run the Spanish economy, government, and armed forces in order to make Spain a Soviet possession, thereby effectively destroying the foundations of authentic Spanish antifascism. The documents also shed light on many other disputed episodes of the war: the timing of the Republican request for assistance from the Soviet Union; the rise and fall of the International Brigades; the internal workings of the Comintern and its influence on Spain; and much more"--Jacket

A global strategy for combating al Qaeda and the Islamic State by Mary R Habeck( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States faces a fundamental challenge to its way of life. Al Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS), two groups that have already killed thousands of Americans and tens of thousands of Muslims, are waging war on the United States, our allies, and our friends as part of a general strategy to create a global caliphate. As evidenced by their gains in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, and South Asia, the extremists are no longer on the run and arguably are winning. Al Qaeda, in particular, has expanded its control and influence in the past few years, with affiliates and linked groups present in more than 20 countries
Getting it right : US national security policy and Al Qaeda since 2011 by Mary R Habeck( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current national security policy is failing to stop the advancement of al Qaeda and its affiliates throughout the Muslim-majority world. While there are many reasons for this failure, three key issues stand out: a poor definition of the enemy, an incorrect view of its objectives, and the adoption of a strategy that will not defeat the latest evolution of this adaptive organization. If the US understood al Qaeda as it is: the leadership and field army of an insurgency with worldwide linkages that hopes to impose its extremist version of shari'a, govern territory, and overthrow the leaders of every Muslim-majority country, the current national strategy for combating al Qaeda would not be confined to counterterrorism and attrition, but would instead make counterinsurgency, without large numbers of American ground forces, its main technique for confronting and defeating the organization
Knowing the enemy : jihadist ideology and the War on Terror by Mary R Habeck( )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Untimely Thoughts( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most renowned Soviet writers of the twentieth century, Maxim Gorky was an early supporter of the Bolsheviks who became disillusioned with the turn of events after the 1917 revolution. This brilliant and controversial book is a collection of the critical articles Gorky wrote that describe the Russian national character, condemn the Bolshevik methods of government, and provide a vision of the future. "An important book of as much interest now as at the time it was written."--Walter Laqueur "Untimely Thoughts is now timely. Gorky's journalistic pieces are immensely interesting as a commentary on a period of revolution, turmoil, and violence and on the play of forces trying to seize control of the country in a situation close to anarchy-that is, a situation very much like that of Russia today."-Gary Saul Morson, Northwestern University
The History of the Gulag : From Collectivization to the Great Terror( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The human cost of the Gulag, the Soviet labor camp system in which millions of people were imprisoned between 1920 and 1956, was staggering. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and others after him have written movingly about the Gulag, yet never has there been a thorough historical study of this unique and tragic episode in Soviet history. This groundbreaking book presents the first comprehensive, historically accurate account of the camp system. Russian historian Oleg Khlevniuk has mined the contents of extensive archives, including long-suppressed state and Communist Party documents, to uncover the secrets of the Gulag and how it became a central component of Soviet ideology and social policy.Khlevniuk argues persuasively that the Stalinist penal camps created in the 1930s were essentially different from previous camps. He shows that political motivations and paranoia about potential enemies contributed no more to the expansion of the Gulag than the economic incentive of slave labor did. And he offers powerful evidence that the Great Terror was planned centrally and targeted against particular categories of the population. Khlevniuk makes a signal contribution to Soviet history with this exceptionally informed and balanced view of the Gulag

Based on American, German and Soviet sources, this book provides an in-depth study of the Romanian administration in Odessa and Transnistria.

Alexander Dallin, formerly president of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, presents an essential text for anyone interested in the occupation of Soviet Territory during World War II and its consequences

Reforming intelligence : a proposal for reorganizing the intelligence community and improving analysis by Mary R Habeck( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite significant post-9/11 reforms, the U.S. intelligence community (IC) is still not as effective as it could—and should—be. As soon as the 2004 Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act passed, security experts warned that the act had not fully dealt with the challenges facing the IC. The critics pointed to lack of strategic analysis, politicization of intelligence, and the dfficulties that the IC has learning from failures. The need for reform is made more urgent by the increasingly complex national security environment that the United States is facing, dominated by violent non-state Islamic extremists; anti-status-quo states China, Russia, and Iran; and weakened or alienated allies and partners around the globe on which the U.S. must depend for support in dealing with these threats and challenges. There are also well-grounded fears that this situation will be the "new normal" for at least the next decade. The IC must, therefore, become the kind of federated enterprise—organizationally, analytically, and culturally—that can constantly learn from, and adapt to, this highly volatile environment

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This presentation addresses ways to understand the war on terror, or as the author calls it, the "long war"; as well as "jihadism"; and also how to teach these issues to high school students. It tackles the differences between Islamists and other Muslims, and covers discussions on beliefs, practices, and ways of thinking about religion
