Guerrilla Warfare: Cause and Conflict (A 21st Century Success Story?) ( )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Guerrilla force have conducted irregular warfare-with varying degrees of intensity and success-in all ages and all regions of the world, from biblical times to the present. This essay contends that this spectre will haunt the world even more menacingly in the twenty-first century. It states that an overpopulated earth, combined with the failure of governments to meet the social needs of their people, is driving the disillusioned and despairing ever more rapidly toward active participation in, or support of, guerrilla organizations. Although this essay is oriented toward the year 2000 and beyond, the author notes that the emotional forces which ignite conflicts already exist in most of the underdeveloped nations and soon will jolt more advanced societies as well. Actions that national leaders might take to lower the threshold of threat and to deter the growth of guerrilla organizations are suggested, together with the observation that many of the deterrents would be difficult to implement within democratic societies
Essays on War: 1. The Inconsequence of Superpower War, 2. Quarantine, 3. The Quagmire of Self-Defense by National Defense University ( Book )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rarely does the career military officer have an opportunity to step back from the daily press of a line or staff assignment and reflect upon the lessons learned from his career. Captain Walter 'R' Thomas, USN, when afforded this opportunity in the form of a National Defense University Research Fellowship, responded enthusiastically. His three essays represent a senior career naval officer's observations on various aspects of international law and human conflict. In his first essay, 'The Inconsequence of Superpower War, ' Captain Thomas assumes that the possibility of war between the United States and the Soviet Union is remote, at least as long as these two nations maintain their relative power. The greatest danger is viewed as a confrontation which could occur by error, miscalculation, or involvement in someone's else's 'splendid little war.' In the next essay, Captain Thomas proposes that 'Quarantine' operations could be adopted as an alternative to war when they are directed by regional agencies-as the Cuban Quarantine was when it was invoked under the auspices of the Organization of American States. Similar maritime operations by regional agencies are suggested as actions short of war which nations might impose to discipline aggressors and resolve disputes. 'The Quagmire of Self-Defense, ' the third essay, discusses self-defense as a basic right of nations, but alleges that it often is a political gambit which nations use to justify their use of military force. While the doctrine of self-defense is defined generally in the United Nations Charter, the author notes that governments often deliberately apply the concept imprecisely. (Author)
