The Iranian Revolution and modernization : way stations to anarchy by Jack C Miklos ( Book )
2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"To many observers in the West, events in Iran leading up to the revolution in 1979 took a mystifying and seemingly irrational course. In this National Security Essay, Jack Miklos, a foreign service officer who served in several key assignments in Iran, discusses the Iranian Revolution. He looks at theories of social modernization as applied to the history and culture of Iran, and then focuses in depth on the effects of land reform and the pervasive influence of what he identifies as the Iranian national character. His purpose is to examine social science theorizing with a case study of US-aided modernization which exploded in a traditional counter-reformation. Based on firsthand observations as well as theory, the author offers insights into how modernization may have contributed to the Iranian Revolution. These insights can broaden our understanding of nations culturally much different from our own and perhaps help us appreciate the complexity of national behavior and some of its determinants."--Foreword

Understanding U.S. strategy : a reader based on the Ninth National Security Affairs Conference, October 8-9, 1982 by National Security Affairs Conference ( Book )
5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Ninth National Security Affairs Conference, cosponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs and the National Defense University, provided a forum in which officials from throughout Government discussed important aspects of U.S. national security with prominent leaders from the private sector. The papers presented to stimulate discussions at the conference, as well as summaries of those discussions, make up this volume. This year's conference, "Evolving Strategies for a Changing World," addressed the problems of devising a coherent U.S. national security strategy to meet the challenges of international turbulence. Five topics were addressed: evolving a national strategy, strategies for Western Europe, strategies for the use of space, comparing U.S. and Soviet strategies, and the U.S. system for developing strategy. Our distinguished authors and panelists raised fundamental strategic issues which will continue to confront U.S. national security policy makers in the years ahead. Because the issues are of abiding concern to scholars and to an informed American public, we have departed somewhat from our "Proceedings" format of past years and have designed this 1982 NSAC report as a reader in national security. We feel it will serve the defense and academic communities even better in this format, while still furnishing an accurate account of the conference events
