After the storm : the changing military balance in the Middle East by Anthony H Cordesman( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive new analysis goes far beyond today's headlines and the basic facts and figures on the military forces in the region. Tracing the origin of the military forces in each Middle East country, Tony Cordesman discusses current security developments and provides a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the strength and effectiveness of every army, navy, air force, and air defense force in the region. The author assesses current modernization and force expansion plans, force improvement priorities, and the ability of each force to absorb new military equipment. He also looks at each country's internal security situations, the role the military plays in its government, and internal tensions and civil wars. In addition to analyzing regular forces, Cordesman examines all of the paramilitary and rebel forces in the region. Cordesman's detailed analysis provides fresh insights into several specific regional issues. In the Maghreb, he focuses on the war for control of the Western Sahara, the role of the military in Algeria's internal security, and Libya's impact on the political and military stability of the Middle East. He then analyzes Israel's new approach to force planning, the risks of an Israeli-Syrian conflict, Jordan's growing military and internal security problems, efforts to rebuild Lebanon's military forces, and military developments within the PLO. Turning to the Red Sea states, Cordesman discusses the military changes in Yemen since unification and the Gulf War; Yemen's confrontation with Saudi Arabia; the history of the civil wars in the Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia; and the risk that the Horn of Africa will suffer further from civil war in the future. Special attention is given to Iran and Iraq. Cordesman examines Iran's new military buildup in light of the political changes since the death of Khomeini and the military changes since the Iran-Iraq War and the Gulf War. He offers the first comprehensive analysis of the impact of the Gulf War on Iraq's military forces and explains what Iraq is doing to rebuild its capabilities. The author also evaluates the forces of the southern Gulf states, tracing the problems created by their failure to develop effective regional cooperation and national force plans. After the Storm is unique in combining the evaluation of conventional forces with assessments of developments in biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons. Cordesman provides technical descriptions of these weapons systems and documents their proliferation. Summary tables and charts present key statistics for the region, formatted in ways that allow quick country-to-country comparisons. The author closes with assessments of the prospects for arms control in each country, the impact of those nations' military status on Western strategic interests, and the need for Western military assistance and power projection

Less is better : nuclear restraint at low numbers by Malcolm Chalmers( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the rise of "new" security threats like terrorism, cyber-war and piracy, the terrible destructive power of nuclear weapons still hangs over the world. Discussion on further strategic nuclear arms reduction has tended to be dominated by the analysis of possible trade-offs between the US and Russia. But as the prospect of further cuts below "New START" levels is contemplated, increasing attention needs to be paid to the possible shape of a new, multi-power approach to nuclear restraint. While restraint at low numbers goes with the grain of thinking in most nuclear states, correct sequencing will be vital. Using the New START framework, attention could initially be focused on incremental decreases in US and Russian stocks of the most dangerous weapons. Thereafter, the other nuclear powers would need to take steps to limit the size and capabilities of their own arsenals in a process of mutual reductions. If successful, the benefits would be wide ranging: successful restraint amongst existing nuclear-armed states could engender trust, as well as provide mechanisms for reducing the risks of rapid escalation in the event of limited conflict. This book considers the various challenges and opportunities for ensuring restraint at low numbers in today's complicated web of bilateral nuclear relationships and in the context of the debate on "Global Zero."
