French security policy in transition : dynamics of continuity and change by Robbin F Laird( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1989, French defense and security policy has been undercut by changes in the external environment and domestic pressures to deal with the challenge of economic modernization. The Soviet revolution of 1989, the reunification of Germany, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the experience of coalition warfare during the Gulf War-all have challenged the assumptions and realities underlying the Gaullist synthesis. Above all, the French position on security independence has been put into question. The main hope has been for a European Alliance to supplant the American one over time in the face of a gradual process of change within Europe but change has not been gradual within Europe. The European Union is challenged by discontent within Western Europe. A new Central Europe has emerged that has yet to find its place in European or global politics. A new Russia is emergent in which nationalism is defining an assertive role for the Russians within Europe, but at the same time the economic weakness of Russia limits its ability to play such a role

The revolution in military affairs : allied perspectives by Robbin F Laird( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The revolution in military affairs (RMA) is an American concept that frames a debate about the restructuring of American military forces in the period of globalization of the American economy. A core task for U.S. allies is to seek to understand the American debate and to identify opportunities for and the risks to themselves in variant patterns of development of the American military in the years ahead. An RMA rests upon a dramatic restructuring of the American economy. New technologies are correlated with significant changes in organizational structures. The restructuring of the American military is occurring in the context of restructuring American society and expanded global reach for the United States. It is part of a much broader process of change within the United States and in the relationship of the United States to the world
