Making war : the 200-year-old battle between the president and Congress over how America goes to war by John F Lehman( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman here confronts one of the momentous issues of American history and the American present--the contending prerogatives of the president and Congress in making war. Lehman, a lively controversialist and scholar, examines the history of American military decision making from the Revolutionary period to the Gulf War. Whose power is it to declare war, to carry it out, and to sustain its course and bring it to an end? In addressing these major constitutional questions, Lehman is vibrantly contemporary, too, writing as a government insider to offer a exceptionally vivid perspective on Operation Desert Storm and recent military actions in Grenada, Libya, Lebanon, and Panama. Arguing vehemently for the primacy of presidential over congressional power, Lehman adds crucial new details to our understanding of the post-Vietnam era of American politics. Characteristically, Lehman pulls no punches. He sheds provocative new light on congressional investigations into Watergate and Iran-Contra, authoritatively demonstrating the ways in which Congress has created crippling impediments to presidential power. Yet he provides a fresh understanding of the essential role Congress must play in committing the nation to war, and he enumerates how presidents from Jefferson to Bush have interpreted--and misinterpreted--the powers grated them as commander in chief. John Lehman's enlightening new book makes a invaluable contribution as to whether responsible judgments will be made if and when the nation must again confront the crucial decision of making war

"Examines the rise of al Qaeda-style fundamentalism in Southeast Asia, the institutions that support it, and the threats to America that it represents. Investigating the organization known as Jemaah Islamiyah, and an Indonesian boarding school that is, essentially, the group's West Point, the video sorts through one of the most troubling paradoxes of the war on terror: how militant Islam appears to be supported by a unified global network while regional and national groups carry out their own, independent brands of jihad"--Container

Abstract: "Believable Agents must be able to handle a large number of goals, opportunistically acting on them while maintaining a focus of purpose. They also must be able to operate over long life times without significant performance degradations. We describe in this paper a method of managing an agent's goals so that the agent can make progress on as many goals as possible, without spending undue time considering goals that it can't make progress on. The key part of this method is a way of specializing and generalizing the set of perceptual cues that are used to bring a goal into consideration by the agent. The method is described via a simple example."
