France in Black Africa by Francis Terry McNamara( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When, in 1960, France granted independence to its colonies in West and Central Africa-an empire covering an area the size of the contiguous United States-the French still intended to retain influence in Africa. Through a system of accords with these newly independent African nations, based upon ties naturally formed over the colonial years, France has succeeded for three decades in preserving its position in African affairs. The course of Franco-African relations in the near future, though, is less than certain. In this book, Ambassador Francis Terry McNamara outlines France's acquisition and administration of its Black African empire and traces the former colonies' paths to independence. Drawing upon that background, the ambassador examines the structure of post-independence Franco-African relations and recent strains on those relations, especially African economic crises and the French tendency to focus on Europe. Because of those strains, he suggests, France alone may be unable to support its former dependencies much longer. He believes that long-term solutions to African problems will have to involve international organizations like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund as well as other nations such as the United States and France's European partners. -- From Foreword

US policy in southwest Asia : a failure in perspective by Robert George Lawrence( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over-reliance upon military action as the predominant instrument of US foreign policy in Southwest Asia is the danger against which this essay; warns. Colonel Robert G. Lawrence, is less troubled by questions of US military strength than by policymakers' insensitivity to the historical, religious, and regional dynamics of Southwest Asia in general and the Persian Gulf states in particular. Security assistance, although important, has been mistakenly considered the essential element of US policy when it should complement, not constitute US diplomacy. Too long, we have failed to understand the Arab view of the world in which they live. Our policymakers have slighted the complexity and the diversity of Arab religions, politics, and history-forces which inform and direct Arab actions. Colonel Lawrence directly addresses the tough questions, such as US support of Israel, widely inconsistent policies for foreign military sales, US failure in Iran, and US inaction during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Interviewing over fifty prominent Arab government officials, military leaders, diplomats, scholars, and businessmen, Colonel Lawrence brings immediacy and insight to this frank, somewhat controversial study of Southwest Asia
The national space program from the fifties into the eighties by Cass Schichtle( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph traces the National Space Program and its confusing history from the 1950s to the 1980s. Its focus is the Government agencies charged with leading this nation's public and military programs, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Department of Defense (DOD), respectively. Although the legal role each agency plays can be found in the Space Act of 1958, the programs each pursues are most governed by national space policy. Thus, the central theme of this work is civilian and military space policies and the organizational changes that have been required to implement them. The introduction and chapter 1 review events and influences that have been part of the complex space policy formulation process. Chapter 2 presents a rather detailed evolution of the National Space Program through past administrations for an understanding that is essential to put current issues into proper perspective. To keep this work unclassified, there is no mention of the intelligence community's space work, and program-specific data on military space systems are kept to a minimum
