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

23 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 2,249 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

The Future of air power in the aftermath of the Gulf War( )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2006 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a more benign post-cold war international system, where no threat approaches that of the former Soviet Union, the rationale for the use of US military power cannot be based solely on the national interest. It will have to reflect concern with and support for such issues as self-determination, democratization, human rights, and economic development. The United States must have a postconflict reconstruction assistance policy that contributes to a positive consolidation of the situation and that promotes developments seen as contributing to stability and positive change. The use of force without a policy for the postconflict situation will be politically precarious. Additionally, in this new international security environment the employment of armed forces in missions outside of or short of war has become increasingly important and frequent. Several indicators suggest that these operations will continue to grow in prominence on the US national security agenda. What do these nontraditional operations encompass? The two that have received the most attention to date are peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance. Very recently, a third, peace enforcement, has been added to the list

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

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 277 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 239 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 239 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

Transforming US intelligence for irregular war : Task Force 714 in Iraq by Richard H Shultz( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard H. Shultz examines the pivotal role of intelligence in twenty-first century irregular warfare through an in-depth examination of the fight against Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) between 2004 and 2009. AQI was the most lethal group that fought the US occupation of the country after the toppling of Saddam Hussein. US Special Operations Command deployed Task Force 714, a joint services counterterrorism force, to Iraq to fight the growing insurgency. TF 714's leader, Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, quickly realized that AQI was unlike any insurgent or terrorist organization that preceded it. AQI was comprised of decentralized networks that employed information age technologies to operate across a broad geographical landscape. This book is the story of how TF 714 had to reinvent itself to destroy the leadership, financial units, communications and media centers, intelligence services, bomb production facilities, and arms acquisition procurers of AQI. Along with changes to operational tempo and command structure, TF 714 altered its methods and practices of intelligence collection, analysis, and covert action. TF 714 is an exemplar of successful organizational learning and how intelligence must lead the way in campaigns against nonstate armed groups"--
