Making twenty-first-century strategy : an introduction to modern national security processes and problems by Dennis M Drew( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new work defines national security strategy, its objectives, the problems it confronts, and the influences that constrain and facilitate its development and implementation in a post-Cold War, post-9/11 environment. The authors note that making and implementing national strategy centers on risk management and present a model for assessing strategic risks and the process for allocating limited resources to reduce them. The major threats facing the United States now come from its unique status as "the sole remaining superpower" against which no nation-state or other entity can hope to compete through conventional means. The alternative is what is now called asymmetrical or fourth generation warfare. Drew and Snow discuss all these factors in detail and bring them together by examining the continuing problems of making strategy in a changed and changing world."--AU Press web site

Making strategy : an introduction to national security processes and problems by Dennis M Drew( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National security strategy is a vast subject involving a daunting array of interrelated subelements woven in intricate, sometimes vague, and ever-changing patterns. Its processes are often irregular and confusing and are always based on difficult decisions laden with serious risks. In short, it is a subject understood by few and confusing to most. It is, at the same time, a subject of overwhelming importance to the fate of the United States and civilization itself. Col Dennis M. Drew and Dr Donald M. Snow have done a considerable service by drawing together many of the diverse threads of national security strategy into a coherent whole. They consider political and military strategy elements as part of a larger decisionmaking process influenced by economic, technological, cultural, and historical factors. I know of no other recent volume that addresses the entire national security milieu in such a logical manner and yet also manages to address current concerns so thoroughly. It is equally remarkable that they have addressed so many contentious problems in such an evenhanded manner. Although the title suggests that this is an introductory volume-and it is-I am convinced that experienced practitioners in the field of national security strategy would benefit greatly from a close examination of this excellent book

Thinking about national security : strategy, policy, and issues by Donald M Snow( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most basic national security question that U.S. leaders and the body politic continuously face is where and under what circumstances to consider and in some cases resort to the use of armed force to ensure the country's safety and well-being. The question is perpetual--but the answer is not. This text helps students make sense of the ever-changing environment and factors that influence disagreement over national security risks and policy in the United States. The book takes shape through a focus on three considerations: strategy, policy, and issues. Snow explains the range of plans of action that are possible and resources available for achieving national security goals, as well as the courses of action for achieving those goals in the context of a broad range of security problems that must be dealt with. However, there is little agreement among policymakers on exactly what is the nature of the threats that the country faces. Snow helps readers frame the debate by suggesting some of the prior influences on risk-assessment, some of the current influences on national security debates, and suggestions for how future strategy and policy may be shaped"--Provided by publisher

Distant thunder : patterns of conflict in the developing world by Donald M Snow( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although no longer the site of surrogate competition between rival political-economic systems, the "Third World" is the main focus of instability in the post-Cold War world. Wars of secession, bloody ethnic conflicts, chaotic violence in failing states, domestic and international terrorism, essentially criminal insurgencies with no political objective - all are flourishing wherever "world peace" has left a vacuum. In Distant Thunder, Donald M. Snow traces the dynamics of disorder in the new international environment and the ways in which U.S. policy will need to adapt to new realities
