The operational code of the Politburo by Nathan Leites ( Book )
28 editions published between 1950 and 2007 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Theoretical frameworks that examine a political actor's personal characteristics and how they affect the foreign policies of their respective states are useful tools for analysts, researchers, and historians. One of the most widely used frameworks has been operational code analysis, introduced by Nathan Leites in this seminal RAND Corporation volume, "The Operational Code of the Politburo." Originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1951, it was the inaugural publication in what was then called "The RAND Series" and later became known as RAND's commercial books series, a collection of monographs which aimed to make RAND's groundbreaking research available to the public. In that spirit, and to celebrate RAND's 60th Anniversary, RAND is proud to bring this classic work back into print in paperback and digital formats. The "Operational Code of the Politburo" was part of a major effort at RAND to provide insight into the political leadership and foreign policy in the Soviet Union and other communist states; the development of Soviet military strategy and doctrine; and the organization and operation of the Soviet economy. This immense body of research has had an influence and impact beyond U.S. national security, as the techniques and methodological tools have been refined and extended to new analytic challenges

Inter-Arab conflict contingencies and the gap between the Arab rich and poor : a report by Malcolm H Kerr ( Book )
6 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Documents a portion of RAND work on the military, political, and economic balance in the Middle East. The report considers how income and wealth disparities among Arab countries in the mid-1980s might affect the occurrence and course of any military conflicts. The range of possible conflicts being wide, the report examines only a limited set of cases. It concludes that general demands by the poor for federation with the rich are much less likely than bilateral projects of union not necessarily motivated by economic need. Because some of these unions could lead to inter-Arab military conflict, and because the contingencies are complex and fraught with uncertainties, the United States should proceed cautiously with any policy interventions. The report considers possible U.S. actions with respect to general policy considerations, U.S. force planning and deployment, and policies on security assistance and economic assistance.
