Civil democratic Islam : partners, resources, and strategies by Cheryl Benard( )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the face of Islam's own internal struggles, it is not easy to see who we should support and how. This report provides detailed descriptions of subgroups, their stands on various issues, and what those stands may mean for the West. Since the outcomes can matter greatly to international community, that community might wish to influence them by providing support to appropriate actors. The author recommends a mixed approach of providing specific types of support to those who can influence the outcomes in desirable ways
Women and nation building by Cheryl Benard( )

The battle behind the wire : U.S. prisoner and detainee operations from World War II to Iraq( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although prisoner of war and detainee operations ultimately tend to become quite extensive, military planners and policymakers have repeatedly treated such operations as an afterthought. In reality, such operations can be a central part of the successful prosecution of a conflict. Determining how to gain knowledge from, hold, question, influence, and release captured adversaries can be an important component of military strategy and doctrine, both during the conflict and in reconstruction afterward. This monograph finds parallels in U.S. prisoner and detainee operations in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq: underestimation of the number to be held, hasty scrambling for resources to meet operational needs, and inadequate doctrine and policy. During the later phases of military operations, an attempt is often made to educate prisoners and detainees and influence their social and political values. The results of a survey by RAND researchers of Iraq detainees contravene many assumptions that had been guiding decisions related to detainee operations. The survey found that local and personal motives, along with nationalism, were more prevalent than religious ones and that detainees were often economic opportunists rather than illiterates seeking economic subsistence through the insurgency. Recommendations include that detailed doctrine should be in place prior to detention and that detainees should be surveyed when first detained

Eurojihad : patterns of Islamist radicalization and terrorism in Europe by Angel Rabasa( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history, factors of radicalization have involved social and economic conditions and issues of identity. Patterns of Islamist radicalization in Europe reflect the historical experience of European Muslim communities, particularly their links to their home countries, the prevalence of militant groups there, and the extent to which factors of radicalization in Muslim countries transfer to European Muslim diasporas. Eurojihad examines the sources of radicalization in Muslim communities in Europe and the responses of European governments and societies. In an effort to understand the scope and dynamics of Islamist extremism and terrorism in Europe, this book takes into account recent developments, in particular the emergence of Syria as a major destination of European jihadists. Angel Rabasa and Cheryl Benard describe the history, methods, and evolution of jihadist networks in Europe with particular nuance, providing a useful primer for the layperson and a sophisticated analysis for the expert"--

Der Mann auf der Strasse : über das merkwürdige Verhalten von Männern in ganz alltäglichen Situationen by Cheryl Benard( Book )

20 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in German and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Der Mann ist ein wissenschaftlich unerschlossenes Gebiet : man weiß beinahe nichts über ihn. Die Vielfalt des männlichen Charakterbildes macht es der Forschung schwer. Männer beherrschen diszipliniert die Vorstandssitzungen, machen lebensrettende Erfindungen und lassen sich zum Mond katapultieren. Männer unter sich verstummen und zeigen nur die Spur eines anzüglichen Grinsens, wenn "Damen" den Raum betreten. Sie öffnen Frauen die Tür, helfen ihnen in den Mantel, bezahlen ihnen kleine Mokkas und flüstern ihnen im Vorübergehen Obzönes zu. Ob das alles noch normal ist?"--Back cover

Customized learning : potential Air Force applications by Thomas Manacapilli( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Air Force has a continuing interest in reducing training costs while maintaining or improving the training product. This study looks at educational approaches that would customize training to the individual, with the intent of minimizing the trainee's time in training, focusing the training on the trainee's needs, and getting the trainee productive sooner, all leading to reduced costs. The authors consulted experts in and out of the military, reviewed literature on personalized learning, reviewed meta-analyses on case studies of personalized learning, and assessed some contemporary models. Learning style feedback shows the student how to enhance his or her own learning, and it fosters a discourse between student and teacher on how the student can improve in a course. Customized learning increases the probability of creating lifelong learners. As individuals discover their learning styles, they are motivated to use that knowledge. If they have had bad experiences in the past, the new knowledge gives them a fresh point at which to reengage in learning. The authors recommend that the Air Force conduct some experiments with Air Force vocational training before implementation across Air Force training is considered
