The RAND history of nation-building( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume set examines United States and United Nations nation-building missions since World War II. Its purpose is to analyze military, political, humanitarian, and economic activities in post-conflict situations, determine key principles for success, and draw implications for future nation-building missions. The first volume, America's Role in Nation-Building: From Germany to Iraq, draws lessons from America's experiences in rebuilding Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan and suggests how these lessons might be applied to the reconstruction of Iraq. Volume two, The UN's Role in Nation-Building: From the Congo to Iraq, contains the lessons learned from eight UN cases: Belgian Congo, Namibia, El Salvador, Cambodia, Mozambique, Eastern Slavonia, Sierra Leone, and East Timor, and also examines the nation-building effort in Iraq
America's role in nation-building : from Germany to Iraq by James Dobbins( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation America's Role in Nation-Building reviews more than 50 years of U.S. efforts to transform defeated and broken enemies into democratic and prosperous allies. The authors conclude that rebuilding Iraq will be difficult but possible, and use historical perspective to illuminate today's headlines. The authors, led by veteran diplomatic troubleshooter James Dobbins, draw lessons from America's experiences in rebuilding Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan in order to extract best practices in nation-building and suggest how these lessons might be applied to current and future endeavors, particularly the reconstruction of Iraq. Although each of the seven cases analyzed in this volume offers unique elements, the authors find areas where comparisons might be useful. In particular, they quantify and compare measures of nation-building input (such as troops, time, and economic assistance) and output (including democratic elections and increases in per capita gross domestic product). This book should interest anyone trying to better understand nation-building efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan by placing today's headlines in historical context. It should also interest defense and policy decisionmakers, analysts and students of international affairs, and others concerned with the role of the United States, other nations, and the international community in post-conflict situations

War and escalation in South Asia by John E Peters( Book )

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

The research reported here was part of a study called War and Escalation in South Asia, which was sponsored by the U.S. Air Force Director of Plans (XOX); Commander Central Command Air Forces (CENTAF/CC); and Commander, Pacific Air Force (PACAF/CC); and conducted within the Strategy and Doctrine Program of RAND Project AIR FORCE (PAF). This monograph focuses on the highlights that emerged from an examination of the potential for regional conflicts, tensions, and instability in South Asia to endanger U.S. goals and objectives in the region and more broadly, U.S. equities in the Middle East and greater Asia. Because India and Pakistan are both nuclear weapon states with a long history of tensions and sporadic violence between them, much of the monograph focuses on their relations and the potential for future trouble. This study deals with other sources of friction and conflict, although in a more limited scope. The research should be of interest to anyone concerned with regional stability issues. Other recent RAND research on South Asia includes the following: The Counterterror Coalitions: Cooperation with Pakistan and India, C. Christine Fair (MG-141-AF, 2004). This monograph examines U.S. strategic relations with India and Pakistan both historically and in the current context of the global war on terrorism. It concludes that the intractable dispute over the disposition of Kashmir remains a critical flashpoint between India and Pakistan and a continual security challenge and offers five policy options on how the United States might proceed
