"American Power after the Berlin Wall traces the global projection of U.S. military power and political influence from the end of the Cold War to the present. Along with summarizing the Soviet Union's disintegration, it narrates the ascendancy and reach of Washington's global power in a string of conflicts from the Persian Gulf War to Panama, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and the Iraq War."--Cubierta posterior
One Korea? : challenges and prospects for reunification by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

A distinguished panel of scholars from around the world convened at the Hoover Institution in June 1993 to assess prospects for a reunited Korea. North Korea's highly publicized stance of nuclear noncompliance, initiated only months earlier, gave the conference historical immediacy. It also underscored the potentially catastrophic consequences of continued ideological friction on the Korean peninsula. Scenarios for reunification identified at that conference are presented in this volume

Eyes, ears & daggers : special operations forces and the Central Intelligence Agency in America's evolving struggle against terrorism by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both the Special Operations Forces (SOF) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have served as the nation's eyes, ears, and daggers, often in close cooperation but occasionally at cross-purposes throughout their histories. In this book, Thomas H. Henriksen examines the warrior-spy connection both before and after the formation of the SOF and the CIA. Henriksen shows how, by adopting an intelligence-driven, targeted counterstrike weapon against terrorists, the United States went from a Cold War Goliath to a more nimble force, thanks largely to the SOF and CIA contributions

Cycles in US foreign policy since the Cold War by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes how American international policy alternates between engagement and disengagement cycles in world affairs. These cycles provide a unique way to understand, assess, and describe fluctuations in America's involvement or non-involvement overseas. In addition to its basic thesis, the book presents a fair-minded account of four presidents' foreign policies in the post-Cold War period: George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. It suggests recurring sources of cyclical change, along with implications for the future. An engaged or involved foreign policy entails the use of military power and diplomatic pressure against other powers to secure American ends. A disengaged on noninvolved policy relies on normal economic and political interaction with other states, which seeks to disassociation from entanglements.
Is leaving the Middle East a viable option? by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Thomas H. Henriksen in this publication provides a perspective on the challenging question, "Is Leaving the Middle East a Viable Option?" He lays out a convincing argument that historical involvement within the region based on commercial ties, the need to secure stable international oil supplies (for the U.S. as well as its allies), and engagement in the internecine Israeli-Arab conflict all remain critical security issues for the United States. He captures in a few pages volumes of information on the Middle East as he crafts and weaves the history of United States' involvement from 1783 to the present, highlighting the key policy-making decisions concerning the Middle East. The historical review provides the novice reader new understanding of the Middle East and the knowledgeable reader an excellent overview
The Israeli approach to irregular warfare and implications for the United States by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this publication, Dr. Henriksen discusses the formation, development, and employment of Israeli Special Operations Forces. An informative survey of units and forces underpins Dr. Henriksen's lucid analysis of the strategic and operational conditions and environment in which they are employed. The strategic challenges facing Israel require innovative security solutions, and they have shaped the way Israel created and nurtured a variety of Special Operations Forces. One can argue that the security challenges of Israel are the security concerns of the United States writ small. Terrorist and insurgent forces constantly threaten the country and highlight the need for effective border security to mitigate cross-border attacks and infiltrations. Israel's relatively small size exacerbates these threats and intuitively leads to understanding the requirement for a proactive combating terrorism or counterterrorist program vice a reactive policy. The need for a proactive approach emphasizes the need for effective and timely intelligence, especially Human Intelligence (HUMINT), and the linking of operational missions with the requirement for actionable intelligence. For all of the author's insight into Israeli capabilities and success, he does highlight that Israel has been able to reduce, but not eliminate, the terrorist threat to the country. Counterinsurgency, combating terrorism, and counterterrorism strategies and operations can ameliorate or moderate terrorist actions, but ultimately only a long-term political solution between the warring parties will end an insurgency or terror campaign. Sadly, the current situation for Israel and its neighbors indicates that a viable political settlement is not in sight and, consequently, Israeli Special Operations Forces will have to continue engaging the country's enemies
Afghanistan, counterinsurgency, and the indirect approach by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In exploring Counterinsurgency and the Indirect Approach, Dr. Thomas Henriksen assesses several cases where the United States has employed an Indirect Approach toward achieving strategic objectives, and he suggests where this concept has landed short of expectations. In the cases of Vietnam, Somalia, the Philippines, and other countries, he demonstrates that it is often difficult to fit the Indirect Approach doctrine into such a wide variety of strategic and operational environments. His historical narrative cautions against applying a universal model for an Indirect Approach in counterinsurgency (COIN) --for example, the ill-fated use of Montagnard tribes as surrogates in strike operations beyond their local self-defense missions. Moreover, mutual antagonisms between Montagnard and the South Vietnamese population hampered integration of the highland units into the central government's forces. There were difficulties in accommodating the Montagnard ways to the culture of ethnic Vietnamese. This is similar to the challenges of nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan where differing cultures are attempting to be blended into a working sense of nationhood. Just as the ethnic Vietnamese viewed with alarm the arming and training of the Montagnard people, the integrating of Sunni militias, the Sons of Iraq, into Iraq's security effort was an unpopular step in the eyes of Shia security officials."--P. vii
What really happened in Northern Ireland's counterinsurgency : revision and revelation by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Henriksen's selection of Northern Ireland provides a rich case study of a hotly contested space that represents an ethnic and religious conflict set in Western Europe
Dividing our enemies by Thomas H Henriksen( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henriksen's paper invites the SOF reader to revisit established doctrine for Foreign Internal Defense and Internal Defense and Development along with the complex issues about how to divide and conquer. It is likely that the intelligence needed for exploiting the differences among our enemies will result from these on-the-ground operations. And while lacking the glamour of direct action missions, the effects of special operations teams on the ground conducting unconventional warfare, psychological operations, and civil military operations are absolutely central to achieving an end-state of realizing democratic and viable governments. These are the special operations ways and means that can lead to successfully "leveraging inherent human fault lines to counter terrorism", as Henriksen writes. SOF warriors will agree that having our enemies eliminate each other offers advantages over slug-it-out methodologies
