Force without war : U.S. armed forces as a political instrument by Barry M Blechman( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forskere ved Brookings Institution, Washington, har udarbejdet denne studie, om hvilken det bl.a. anføres: Gennem de tre sidste årtier har USA anvendt deres væbnede styrker ofte og på mange forskellige måder - i de fleste tilfælde i international politisk dimension, således at de kan have haft indflydelse på andre landes politiske lederes meninger og handlinger. Denne studie beskæftiger sig imidlertid kun med de tilfælde, hvor militære enheder er blevet anvendt på "diskret" måde for at opnå specielle resultater i særlige situationer. Der var 215 sådanne tilfælde mellem 1945 og 1975. Studien konkluderer at den demonstrative og diskrete anvendelse af væbnede styrker til politiske formål ikke bør blive en foranstaltning, som politikerne griber til for ofte, eller for hastigt, for at forfølge politiske mål udenlands. Det er forfatternes opfattelse, at set over en længere periode var disse anvendelser af væbnede styrker ikke et effektivt instrument i udenrigspolitikken. Dette udelukker dog ikke, at en demonstrativ anvendelse af militære styrker under særlige omstændigheder kan være en effektiv vej til at forhindre situationer i udlandet, som er ugunstige for amerikanske interesser, i at forværres hurtigere, end en passende politik kan blive udformet. Som "case studies" har forfatterne anvendt flg. begivenheder: Krigen i Laos 1962 og krigen Indien - Pakistan 1971; Libanon 1958 og Jordan 1970; Interventionen i Den Dominikanske Republik 1961 - 66; Berlin kriserne 1958 - 59 og 1961; Jugoslavien 1951 og Tjekkoslovakiet 1968

This book attempts to make the problem of budgetary choice at the federal level more intelligible by classifying, analyzing, and projecting into the future the components of the budget in a way which makes it possible to put together several comprehensive alternative budgets, each illustrating from a different view how the Federal Government could deal with national problems. The book first discusses domestic programs grouped into five major "strategies" or roles of the Federal Government: (1) affecting the distribution of income through taxes and transfer payments; (2) helping people buy such essential goods and services as housing, medical care, and higher education; (3) providing grants to State and local governments for specific programs; (4) investing in the physical environment; and (5) general revenue sharing. The book next analyzes the defense budget in terms of the cost and effectiveness of particular forces and weapon systems and in the context of alternative views about the world role of the United States and the mission of its armed forces abroad. Throughout the book current programs are compared with alternatives, and projections are made of the costs of each alternative. A final chapter presents several alternative budgetary futures which differ from each other in terms of budget size, tax structure, the split between domestic and defense programs, and the mix of domestic programs.
