Insurgents, terrorists, and militias : the warriors of contemporary combat by Richard H Shultz( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 2,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigates the history and politics of modern asymmetrical warfare. By focusing on four specific hotbeds of instability-Somalia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, and Iraq-Shultz and Dew conduct a careful analysis of tribal culture and the value of clan associations. They examine why these "traditional" or "tribal" warriors fight, how they recruit, where they find sanctuary, and what is behind their strategy. Traveling across two centuries and several continents, Shultz and Dew examine the doctrinal, tactical, and strategic advantages and consider the historical, cultural, and anthropological factors behind the motivation and success of the warriors of contemporary combat. Shultz and Dew propose that war in the post-Cold War era cannot be waged through traditional Western methods of combat, especially when friendly states and outside organizations like al-Qaeda serve as powerful allies to the enemy, and they recommend how conventional militaries can defeat these irregular yet highly effective organizations. - from publisher descriptions

This collection of essays reflects the proceedings of a 1991 conference on "The United States Air Force: Aerospace Challenges and Missions in the 1990s," sponsored by the USAF and Tufts University. The 20 contributors comment on the pivotal role of airpower in the war with Iraq and address issues and choices facing the USAF, such as the factors that are reshaping strategies and missions, the future role and structure of airpower as an element of US power projection, and the aerospace industry's views on what the Air Force of the future will set as its acquisition priorities and strategies. The authors agree that aerospace forces will be an essential and formidable tool in US security policies into the next century. The contributors include academics, high-level military leaders, government officials, journalists, and top executives from aerospace and defense contractors

In the aftermath of war : US support for reconstruction and nation-building in Panama following Just Cause by Richard H Shultz( )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What factors led to the decision to use force in Panama? President George Bush listed four reasons: to protect American citizens abroad, to defend democracy in Panama, to combat drug trafficking, and to protect the integrity of the Panama Canal treaties. For Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) Chairman Colin Powell, six criteria had to be satisfied: Was there sufficient provocation? Powell thought yes. Has the PDF (Panamanian Defense Force) changed and gone out of control? Again yes. Would Blue Spoon (the military plan for intervention) resolve the problem? Yes. would the plan minimize damage and casualties? Yes. Would it bring democracy? Yes. And public and press reaction? Probably positive. These statements coincide with four guidelines for using force in the aftermath of the cold war detailed in chapter 1. First, there was an identifiable threat to US interests on three counts. The killing of a US Marine officer on 16 December 1989 and the physical abuse of a Navy lieutenant and his wife had put Americans at risk. Noriega and the Panamanian Defense Force (PDF) appeared to be going out of control. By extension, this situation was seen as threatening the Panama Canal. PDF violence might put the canal at risk. Finally, there was Noriega's involvement in international drug trade, an increasingly important US national security issue. However, the decision to intervene entailed more than the defense of US interests. It included the normative objective of supporting democratization in Panama

Global insurgency strategy and the Salafi Jihad movement by Richard H Shultz( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, the author differentiates and characterizes terrorists and insurgents, and he conducts a detailed conceptual and historical analysis of insurgency and its current manifestation on a global scale by the Salafi Jihad movement. This work lays out the case that terrorism and insurgency differ, and that the current "long war" is actually being fought by the other side as an insurgency. As a result, the United States must amend and adapt its strategy to one of global counterinsurgency, beyond a global war on terrorism alone

Military innovation in war : it takes a learning organization a case study of Task Force 714 in Iraq by Richard H Shultz( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this monograph, Dr. Richard Shultz provides key findings on how organizational change and innovation by Task Force 714 dismantled al-Qaeda in Iraq's networked secret organization. Dr. Shultz utilizes sound methodology to show how TF 714 was able to achieve this incredidible transformation. Drawing from memoirs and in-depth interviews with several TF 714 leaders, Dr. Shultz further analyzes these sources through the use of analytic tools drawn from leading business and management studies focused on organizational learning and innovation. This monograph provides critical insights and lessons learned for U.S. Special Operations Forces and interagency partners who will establish, deploy, or support a special operations command and control organization. It is also a good historical case study and provides a foundation on how to adapt, innovate, and grow military structures into learning organizations to meet the future challenges of complex environments and our enemies."--Back cover
Security force assistance and security sector reform by Richard H Shultz( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monograph, the author conducts a study of the coming requirements and likely contexts in confronting future security challenges. Specifically, he argues that weak and failing states will play a central role in coming conflicts. More importantly, the ungoverned/alternatively governed spaces within weak and failing states will provide the opportunity for violent extremist organizations (VEOs) to grow and extend their influence. As such, the author argues that failing states represent a challenge not only locally, but as a threat to international security. How this challenge will be overcome is first by recognizing that future threats, generally, will not be state centric, but rather irregular in nature

The Marines take Anbar : the four-year fight against al Qaeda by Richard H Shultz( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Marines' campaign to secure Anbar Province in Iraq will rank as one of the Corps' historic battle achievements. Dick Shultz's brilliant account of that campaign is rich in lessons learned and examples of adaptability. The Marines Take Anbar will be a classic study in counter insurgency." {u2500} Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.) The U.S. Marine Corps' four-year campaign against al Qaeda in Anbar is a fight certain to take its place next to such legendary clashes as Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Chosin, and Khe Sanh. Its success, the author contends, constituted a major turning point in the Iraq War and helped alter the course of events and set the stage for the Surge in Baghdad a year later. This book brings to light all the decisive details of how the Marines, between 2004 and 2008, adapted and improvised as they applied the hard lessons of past mistakes. In March 2004, when part of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) was deployed to Anbar Province in the heart of the Sunni triangle, the Marines quickly found themselves locked in a bloody test of wills with al Qaeda, and a burgeoning violent insurgency. By the spring of 2006, according to all accounts, enemy violence was skyrocketing, while predictions for any U.S. success were plummeting. But at that same time new counterinsurgency initiatives were put in place when I MEF returned for its second tour in Anbar, and the Marines began to gain control. By September 2008 the fight was over. Richard Shultz, a well-known author and international security studies expert, has thoroughly researched this subject. His book effectively argues the case for the Marines changing the course of the war at Anbar, which is contrary to the conventional wisdom that the Surge was the turning point. -- book description
