The U.S. Army and the new national security strategy by Lynn E Davis( )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 2,370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How is the U.S. Army changing to fulfill its role in light of the new national security strategy? How must it change further to better accomplish its manifold and varied missions? How did the attacks of September 11, 2001, alter or accelerate the need for change? Is the Army's far-reaching program for change known as the Army Transformation on the right track? Fourteen RAND analysts with broad experience in strategic and Army planning have undertaken to answer these questions. In this book, the authors use nine chapters to examine the Army's role in the offensive war on terrorism; the Army's homeland security needs; the implications for the Army of the increase in emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region; the Army's role in coalition operations; the unfinished business of jointness-the lessons to be learned from recent Army operations and how the Army can better prepare for the future; the Army's deployability, logistical, and personnel challenges; and whether the Army can afford the Transformation as currently envisaged. These chapters are bracketed by a concise introduction, a description of the new national security strategy and the Army's place in it, and a succinct summary of the authors' conclusions. This book is nothing less than a call for the Army to change and a prescription for what needs to be done
Allies at war : America, Europe, and the crisis over Iraq by Philip H Gordon( )

16 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the 1956 Suez Crisis to the disputes over US military intervention in Bosnia and Kosovo in the 1990s, the history of the post-World War II American-European alliance is one of nearly continuous diplomatic crisis. Yet, no matter how deep the divisions or bitter that dispute, in the end, the allies always found ways to rise above their differences and preserve the integrity of an alliance that, by the late 1990s, had become the most successful in world history." "The diplomatic wrangling over the war in Iraq produced the worst transatlantic crisis in nearly fifth years, and for the first time leaders in both the United States and Europe are seriously questioning the viability and, indeed, even the value of the alliance. But is this latest crisis really so different from all those that came before it? Is it, as some contend, the culmination of an inevitable process of dissolution that began with the end of the Cold War and become clear after 9/11? Is the fragile US-European alliance and the world order it supports coming unraveled?" "In Allies at War, distinguished Brookings analysts Philip Gordon and Jeremy Shapiro provide answers to these and other critical questions about the current crisis in US-European relations and its implications for the future." "To help put the current crisis into context the authors trace the evolution of American-European relations since World War II. They describe how deep ideological differences that emerged at the end of the Cold War and disputes over the Balkans, Iran, and Iraq during the Clinton years already had some analysts questioning if the alliance would survive. They explain how the Bush administration's "cowboy diplomacy" helped bring already simmering tensions to a boil. And they provide a detailed, inside account of the events leading up to the Iraq crisis, describing how a series of disastrous diplomatic missteps turned a legitimate disagreement over how to deal with a rogue regime into a crisis that threatened the alliance's every existence." "Finally, in response to those who would say good riddance to an alliance that has given the West fifty years of unprecedented economic and political stability, the authors explain why continued US-European cooperation is essential to global security and prosperity. In an age of terrorism and globalization, they argue, no country or continent, no matter how strong, can stand alone. Allies at War offers concrete prescriptions for mending the rifts that have opened in our relationship and cementing an even stronger alliance - one strong enough to weather the challenges of a post-9/11 world."--Jacket
Strategic appraisal : United States air and space power in the 21st century by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Change--in international relations, in technology, and in society as a whole--has become the idiom of our age. One example of these changes has been an increasing recognition of the value of air and space assets for handling nearly every contingency from disaster relief to war and, onsequently, increasing demand for such assets. These developments have created both challenges and opportunities for the U.S. Air Force. This, the fourth volume in the Strategic Appraisal series, draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND to explore both the challenges and opportunities that the U.S. Air Force faces as it strives to support the nation's interests in a challenging technological and security environment. Contributors examine the changing roles of air and space forces in U.S.national security strategy, the implications of new systems and technologiesfor military operations, and the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. securitystrategy. Contributors also discuss the status of major modernizationefforts within the Air Force, and the bill of health of the Air Force, asmeasured by its readiness to undertake its missions both today and in thefuture
The ABCs of financial education : experimental evidence on attitudes, behavior, and cognitive biases( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper uses a large scale field experiment in India to study attitudinal, behavioral, and cognitive constraints that stymie the link between financial education and financial outcomes. The study complements financial education with (i) participant classroom motivation with pay for performance on a knowledge test, (ii) intensity of treatment with personalized financial counseling, and (iii) behavioral nudges with financial goal setting. The analysis finds no impact of pay for performance but significant effects of both counseling and goal setting on real financial outcomes. These results identify important complements to financial education that can bridge the gap between financial knowledge and financial behavior change

Getting out from "in-between" : perspectives on the regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia by Samuel Charap( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia's relations with the West are in deep turmoil. While the competitive dynamic between Russia and the West has come to a head in Ukraine, all of the "in-between" states--Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan--are objects of a contest among outside powers. This contest has become a negative-sum game, benefiting none of the parties: The West and Russia now find themselves locked into a dangerous and damaging competition, while the states in the region remain to varying degrees unstable, unreformed, and rife with conflict. Both Russian and Western policy toward these states has seemingly reached a dead end. Continuing with the status quo will likely perpetuate instability, poor governance, and a long-term Cold War-like atmosphere in West-Russia relations. However, without a credible alternative to the status quo, both the West and Russia seem doomed to continue it. The RAND Corporation convened a working group composed of experts and former policy practitioners from the United States, the European Union, Russia and the in-between states to consider proposals to foster cooperation, reduce tensions, and increase stability. The papers collected here outline these findings and recommendations
Towards a post-American Europe : a power audit of EU-US relations by Jeremy Shapiro( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Europe has the US president it wished for, but does Barack Obama have the strong transatlantic partner he wants? As European Council on Foreign Relations analyst Nick Witney and Jeremy Shapiro from the Brookings Institution warn in their report, 'Towards a post-American Europe: A Power Audit of EU-US Relations', published by ECFR, national governments in the EU must shake off illusions about the transatlantic relationship if they want to avoid irrelevance on the global stage. With EU leaders heading to Washington for their transatlantic summit on 3 November, Shapiro and Witney caution EU member states: an unsentimental President Obama has already lost patience with a Europe lacking coherence and purpose. In a 'post-American' world, the United States knows it needs effective partners. If Europe cannot step up, Shapiro and Witney believe the US will look for other privileged partners to do business with. Yet the report reveals that a large majority of EU member states still believe they enjoy a 'special relationship' with the US and compete for access and favour as if the transatlantic relationship remained the dominant foreign policy paradigm in Washington. In the report, published by ECFR today, Nick Witney and Jeremy Shapiro argue that: Europeans are in denial about how the world is changing. They sense their increasing marginalisation yet cling to the outdated belief that they remain dependent on the US for their security. They make a fetish out of the transatlantic relationship, anxiously pursuing harmony for harmony's sake without questioning what it is good for. European governments' desires to gratify the US rob the EU of influence. A number of European nations--including the UK, the Netherlands and Portugal--like to think they have a 'special relationship' with the US which works better for them than any collective approach. They deploy different strategies to ingratiate themselves with Washington in a competition for American favour. The result is a frustrated US and an uninfluential Europe: Europe has 30,000 troops in Afghanistan yet virtually no say in strategy. The US needs strong partners in a world that it no longer dominates. It knows it can turn to China on the economy and Russia on nuclear disarmament. In comparison, Washington is disappointed with Europe and sees EU member states as infantile: responsibility shirking and attention seeking. The US would prefer a more united EU, but expects so little that it cannot bring itself to greatly care. When the EU is hard-headed, as with trade negotiations, the US listens. When it is not, Europeans are asking to be divided and ruled. Institutional fixes are not the answer. The solution is not more summits, forums and dialogues. Europeans need to decide what they want when it comes to Afghanistan, Russia and the Middle East peace process and approach Obama with clear objectives. The 'hobbled giant' that is Europe needs to understand that both sides of the Atlantic will stand to gain from such a cultural shift.--Publisher description

Rethinking the regional order for post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia by Samuel Charap( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disputes over the regional order in post-Soviet Europe and Eurasia, which reached their apex with the Russian annexation of Crimea and invasion of eastern Ukraine, are at the core of the broader breakdown in Russia-West relations. The contest between Russia and the West over the states that found themselves "in between"--Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan--has also taken a significant toll on these countries themselves. Current policy approaches to the regional order--particularly, the pursuit of mutually exclusive integration agendas by Russia and the West--seem likely to exacerbate these problems. This Perspective proposes a new approach to the regional order, based on mutual respect for the current membership of existing institutions, a mutually acceptable framework for regional integration for nonmembers of those institutions, and norms governing the behavior of outside powers toward these states. This proposal could bring regional stability, facilitate conflict resolution, restore economic links, and reduce the dangerous level of tensions in Russia-West relations. We suggest steps, including beginning an informal dialogue and making visible, reciprocal moves to demonstrate commitment, that governments can take in the short term to begin the process of achieving an agreement along these lines. Commonly encountered objections to pursuing such an agreement are also addressed. We present original polling data to address the question of the acceptability of a compromise to the citizens of the countries of the region

Be afraid. Be a little afraid : the threat of terrorism from Western foreign fighters in Syria and Iraq by Daniel Byman( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As many as 3,000 foreign fighters from Europe and North America have gone to Syria and Iraq to become soldiers, most often fighting for jihadist groups such as ISIS and Al-Nusra. Western foreign fighters have traveled to conflicts in the Islamic world in the past, in Afghanistan, in Iraq and in Somalia, for example, but never in such numbers. U.S. and European officials have expressed fears that this unprecedented flow of foreign fighters creates a serious threat that some of them will someday return and commit terrorist acts in their country of origin. This paper examines the threat that Western foreign fighters pose to their homelands. The paper argues that although the threat of foreign fighters to the West is real, it has also been exaggerated and that Western security services have the knowledge and capacity to deal with the problem
Assessing counterinsurgency and stabilization missions by Jason Campbell( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this paper we do not discover simple, universal rules about which metrics are most telling as guides to progress in counterinsurgency and stabilization missions. Our finding underscore the challenge of this task, and the variability in the proper use of metrics from one case to another. But we are still able to reach some conclusions with policy salience. One is that the current Afghanistan strategy of the Obama administration is rightly focused on population security--and, more generally, improving the lives of normal citizens--as well as Afghan institution building. Moreover, because absolute levels of violence in Afghanistan are far less severe than they were until recently in Iraq, or many other countries engulfed by civil war, there may be time to pursue this strategy without seeing the country ripped apart in the meantime. However, we also conclude that it may take well into 2010 to see if this generally sound strategy is actually working--especially since the resources being devoted to the task are at the lower end of what such missions have generally required to be successful"--Page 2

Liability structure in small-scale finance : evidence from a natural experiment by Fenella Carpena( )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Microfinance, the provision of small individual and business loans, has witnessed dramatic growth, reaching over 150 million borrowers worldwide. Much of its success has been attributed to overcoming the challenges of information asymmetries in uncollateralized lending. Yet, very little is known about the optimal contract structure of such loans--there is substantial variation across lenders, even within a particular setting. This paper exploits a plausibly exogenous change in the liability structure offered by a microfinance program in India, which shifted from individual to group liability lending. We find evidence that the lending model matters: for the same borrower, required monthly loan installments are 11 percent less likely to be missed under the group liability setting, relative to individual liability. In addition, compulsory savings deposits are 20 percent less likely to be missed under group liability contracts

United States Air and Space Power in the 21st Century: Strategic Appraisal( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aerospace power has become the archetypal expression of the U.S. ability to project force in the modern world. Throughout the world, U.S. aerospace power and thus, the U.S. Air Force (USAF) plays a critical, and often primary, role in securing U.S. interests, in promoting American values, and in protecting human rights. While the USAF has had significant success in employing aerospace power in the recent past, emerging trends in international relations, in technology, and in our own domestic society will create a wide variety of new challenges and new opportunities for U.S. aerospace power. Meeting these challenges and exploiting these opportunities will require careful planning, wise investments, and thoughtful training, as well as difficult cultural adaptations within the USAF. This book identifies many of these challenges and opportunities in a wide variety of issue areas and assesses the degree to which the USAF is prepared to meet them. While the work was carried out under the auspices of the Strategy and Doctrine program of RAND's Project AIR FORCE, which is sponsored by the U.S. Air Force, this volume draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND in a variety of related disciplines. The primary audience of this work consists of Air Force leaders and planners, but it should be of interest to others concerned about national security issues

The state of U.S. homeland security by State of U.S. Homeland Security( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In three months we will mark the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. While a good deal has been accomplished to protect the country since, much still needs to be done. Policymakers and observers argue the nation must not lose its sense of urgency on homeland security. But what is the state of U.S. homeland security? And with the arrival of hurricane season, how well prepared is the U.S. for coping with the challenge of natural disasters that could afflict the nation? On June 1, Brookings convened a discussion to examine these questions and the overall state of American homeland security with a keynote address by Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. A panel discussion featured a group of leading experts, including three of the coauthors of the new Brookings book, Protecting the Homeland 2006/2007: Michael O'Hanlon, senior fellow, Brookings; Jeremy Shapiro, director of research, Center on the United States and Europe (CUSE), Brookings; and Michael B. d'Arcy, a nonresident technology fellow at Brookings. Richard Falkenrath, a Brookings senior fellow and former deputy homeland security advisor to President George W. Bush moderated the discussion. The panel was followed by remarks from Secretary Chertoff. Secretary Chertoff formerly served as United States circuit judge for the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and as an assistant attorney general, where he helped trace the 9/11 terrorist attacks to the al-Qaida network, and worked to increase information sharing within the FBI and with state and local officials."--Publisher's description in website (viewed October 2, 2013)
