National security : the Israeli experience by Yiśraʼel Ṭal( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines the degree to which security theories have proven valid and suggests an updated security doctrine for the next century. Beginning with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, Israeli defense planners have faced a daunting task. General Tal describes the history of the Israel-Arab wars from the War of Independence onward and presents a security theory specific to Israel from which the fighting doctrines of the Israeli military derive. He also categorizes the levels of security various nations enjoy as a result of their differing geo-political situations, their power, and the conflicts of interests that they face with their neighbors."--Jacket
Saudi Arabia : national security in a troubled region by Anthony H Cordesman( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's strategic importance is driven by two key factors: religion and petroleum. It is the location of Islam's two most important holy places and the scene of Islam's annual pilgrimage. It plays an important role in the lives of over 1.6 billion Muslims, of which only roughly 15 percent are Arab. At a time when religion is a critical factor in global politics, the fact that the King of Saudi Arabia is called the "custodian of the two mosques" is not merely a title. Saudi Arabia's moderate regime is a key player in limiting the growth of extremism and terrorism. Religion and oil, however, are only two aspects of Saudi security. The fall of Saddam Hussein, and the destruction of Iraq's conventional military forces, has left a power vacuum in the northern Gulf that Iran is actively seeking to exploit. Saudi Arabia is the only country that is large enough and strong enough to underpin any regional security structure in the southern Gulf. It is the one southern Gulf country that can provide strategic depth to the other, smaller southern Gulf States-- which are minutes or seconds of flight time from Iran, and whose forces are far too small to defend themselves by acting alone

Unequal partners : French-German relations, 1989-2000 by Julius Weis Friend( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reconciliation of France and Germany is a landmark in the history of the 20th century. Between 1870 and 1950, they fought three wars. Then, as founders of the European Community they became linked by increasingly close economic, political, and cultural ties. Friend asserts that it is no exaggeration to say that the French-German relationship has been central to the history of Western Europe in the second half of the 20th century.''Friend provides a largely chronological account of the bilateral relation from the turbulence of unification through the years when an enlarged EU sought new institutions of governance. He then examines the basis of the Franco-German relationship today and looks to future changes. As Germany has become the economic giant of Europe, particularly after the reunification of West and East Germany, the relationship has changed, and Friend explores how this unequal but unavoidable partnership has adapted. An important guide for policy makers as well as scholars and students involved with contemporary European Studies
African foreign policy and diplomacy from antiquity to the 21st century by Daniel Don Nanjira( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is based on four fundamental objectives. First, it aims to outline the themes, problems, and challenges that face Africa and determine the nature and function of Africa's diplomacy and foreign policy. Second, it aims to cram a comprehensive survey of information, knowledge, and critical analyses of the various aspects of the African events, issues, and dictates of life, and that will examine each of these aspects extensively, each in its own compartment for the use of any-one or any institution that may be interested in a given aspect of African diplomacy, foreign policy, and international relations. This is a study of African international relations, politics, economics and related issues, and the global system in which Africa participates as a collection of states that are sovereign political units and subjects of international law. Third, this book endeavors to determine the roots, foundations, and sources of African international relations, African diplomacy, and foreign policy, and trace them to antiquity. The analyses deal with the various sources and backgrounds of physical, historical, political, social, cultural, economic, and environmental origin from which the theory and reality of African international relations, African diplomacy, and foreign policy are derived. Fourth, this book targets a broad audience, which is invited to use this book as a master text on African international relations, African diplomacy, and foreign policy that collects national, regional, and global perspectives on Africa
