Rethinking America's security : beyond Cold War to new world order ( Book )
6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 854 libraries worldwide
During the Cold War, American national security seemed clearly defined: to protect against the overarching threat of the Soviet Union and Communist expansion. But with the demise of Communism, America must reconsider its role in the world as dramatically as it did after victory in World War II. As the only real superpower, how should we use our military strength? What are the lessons of the Persian Gulf War? How and when do we cut back on our defense and national security establishment? In the New World Order a country's social cohesion and economic strength at home are increasingly important determinants of its success. To what extent does America need to reconsider its national security in domestic terms--i.e., improving economic competitiveness and learning to live within its means? In this new collection, sponsored by the American Assembly and the Council on Foreign Relations, a group of leading experts assesses the changing conception of national security in the 1990s and its implications for American policy at home and abroad.
New challenges, new tools for defense decisionmaking ( Book )
10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 822 libraries worldwide
It is still easy to underestimate how much the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War and then the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 transformed the task of American foreign and defense policymaking. In place of predictability (if a sometimes terrifying predictability), the world is now very unpredictable. In place of a single overriding threat and benchmark by which all else could be measured, a number of possible threats have arisen, not all of them states. In place of force-on-force engagements, U.S. defense planners have to assume "asymmetric" threats ways not to defeat U.S. power but to render it irrelevant. This book frames the challenges for defense policy that the transformed world engenders, and it sketches new tools for dealing with those challenges from new techniques in modeling and gaming, to planning based on capabilities rather than threats, to personnel planning and making use of "best practices" from the private sector.

Commercial power centers in emerging markets by Gregory F Treverton ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 672 libraries worldwide
As the ongoing Asian crises underscore, policymaking and policies are becoming less the exclusive purview of governments and more the outcome of a complex process in which diverse groups participate actively, with varying degrees of influence. A commercial power center (CPC) is any group, combination, or coalition that seeks to influence the design and implementation of government economic policies to suit its interests. This analytic framework is used to assess the changing politics of economic policymaking--to identify new groups with stakes and older ones that may be losing influence, and to evaluate their interaction in the making of government policy. The influence of selected CPCs in emerging markets matters for both what analysts look at and how they view those new targets. Asia's financial crisis, which struck as this project was in its final stages, drove home that lesson. The authors illustrate their methodology by examining four countries--Mexico, Turkey, China, and Indonesia--that are in transition and that vary widely from one another.
America, Germany, and the future of Europe by Gregory F Treverton ( Book )
10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 588 libraries worldwide
This book argues that Germany is, and will remain, Europe's center, both literally and figuratively. It is where the Cold War period began and ended, where the postwar order, originally ratified by Germany's division between East and West, collapsed with the dismantling of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Treverton reviews the significant episodes in Europe's history after World War II: the division of Germany through halting, half-inadvertent steps; the reconstruction of Europe through the Marshall Plan; the creation of NATO and the decision to station American troops in large numbers in Europe; and the epochmaking French bet, the Schuman Plan, and the beginning of European integration. Throughout, he emphasizes America's preoccupation with Europe and the decisive effect of U.S. foreign policy on European security and economic arrangements during the postwar years. Although Europe's future is uncertain, Treverton maintains it should be happier than the frozen stability of the Cold War. There will be a place for America in this future Europe, but it will be a far less prominent place. Provocative analogies for the new Europe are suggested by older Europes - either the one that followed the Concert of Europe of 1815, the first German unification in 1871, or the peace of Versailles in 1919. What is striking now, though, apart from the continuing fact of nuclear weapons, is that Germany, a defeated object of partition then, is unified and fulfilled now. Moreover, the kind of interdependence reflected in the European Community suggests a future in which military issues will recede in importance. The Community, with a pan-European organization like the Conference on Security and Cooperation (CSCE), can serve as a framework for security, while NATO may remain, during a long interim, as insurance against new threats from the East and as reassurance for Germany and its neighbors. Anyone interested in the emerging economic and political situation will find this a wide-ranging and perceptive analysis of the relationship of Germany to its European and transatlantic allies.

Reorganizing U.S. domestic intelligence assessing the options by Gregory F Treverton ( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 471 libraries worldwide
"One of the questions in the fight against terrorism is whether the United States needs a dedicated domestic intelligence agency separate from law enforcement, on the model of many comparable democracies. To examine this issue, Congress directed that the Department of Homeland Security perform an independent study on the feasibility of creating a counterterrorism intelligence agency and the department turned to the RAND Corporation for this analysis but asked it specifically not to make a recommendation. This volume lays out the relevant considerations for creating such an agency. It draws on a variety of research methods, including historical and legal analysis; a review of organizational theory; examination of current domestic intelligence efforts, their history, and the public's view of them; examination of the domestic intelligence agencies in six other democracies; and interviews with an expert panel made up of current and former intelligence and law enforcement professionals. The monograph highlights five principal problems that might be seen to afflict current domestic intelligence enterprise; for each, there are several possible solutions, and the creation of a new agency addresses only some of the five problems. The volume discusses how a technique called break-even analysis can be used to evaluate proposals for a new agency in the context of the perceived magnitude of the terrorism threat. It concludes with a discussion of how to address the unanswered questions and lack of information that currently cloud the debate over whether to create a dedicated domestic intelligence agency."--Publisher's website.
Making policy in the shadow of the future by Gregory F Treverton ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 442 libraries worldwide
The National Intelligence Council's (NIC's) 2008 report Global Trends 2025: A Transformed World projects what the world will look like in 2025 based on recent trends. However, as an intelligence organization, the NIC limits its report to describing the impacts of future trends on the United States -- it cannot explore the important question: How should U.S. policy adapt now to account for these trends and the future that will result from them? This paper takes on that task. It focuses on important issues for which a long-term perspective leads to different immediate choices for U.S. policy than would result from only a short-term perspective. These include energy and climate change; defense policy, including the diffusion of nuclear weapons and the movement to abolish them; the reshaping of international law and institutions; the structure of the federal government; and the U.S. relationship with Mexico. For some other issues, long- and short-term thinking produce similar conclusions; yet for still others, the two perspectives seem difficult to reconcile.
