Enhancing human performance : issues, theories, and techniques by Daniel Druckman( )

19 editions published between 1987 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the activities, findings, and conclusions of a committee that examined the potential value of techniques proposed to enhance human performance. Chapter 1 provides the context for the study and the Army's interest in enhancing performance, characterizes particular techniques, and introduces general issues in evaluating them. Chapter 2 presents findings about the techniques examined and conclusions about appropriate evaluation procedures. Chapter 3 treats the relevant evaluation issues more systematically and presents the committee's philosophy of evaluation. Chapters 4-8 deal with particular techniques but are organized in terms of more general psychological processes. Each chapter attempts to draw on a broader literature concerning the processes being influenced--learning, motor skills, mental states, stress, and social interactions. Chapter 9 considers parapsychological techniques. The report concludes with six appendixes. They (1) briefly summarize the key elements of each enhancement technique, (2) list the 10 papers commissioned by the committee and their authors, (3) list members and activities of the subcommittees and activities of the committee as a whole, (4) list key terms used in the research on particular techniques, (5) discuss application of scientific research by the military, and (6) contain biographical sketches of committee members.

Learning, remembering, believing : enhancing human performance by D.C.) National Research Council (Washington( )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 2,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the third report of the Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance. Based on hundreds of research studies of learning and human performance as reported in the literature, the book consists of 11 chapters organized in five parts. The two chapters of the first part provide the background and summary of the committee's study. The first chapter describes the topics undertaken in this third phase of the study and the relationships between these topics and earlier work done by the committee. Chapter 2 summarizes key findings and conclusions for each chapter. The second part of the book considers a number of issues related to individual training. Chapter 3 focuses on the extent to which training should be provided in a situation similar to which performance occurs; chapter 4 addresses the illusions of comprehension that occur when people do not understand the reasons for the "right" answers to problems. The three chapters of part 3 consider learning and performing in teams. In chapter 5, research on cooperative learning, especially for adults, is reviewed. Chapters 6 and 7 focus on team performance and team training. In the fourth part, the implications of a person's emotional state for performance are discussed. In chapter 8, studies on achievement motivation, career development, health and exercise behavior, anxiety disorders, and sport and motor performance are discussed, with a concentration on perceptions of self-confidence. The following chapter focuses primarily on hypnosis, with side studies on restricted environmental stimulation and meditation and sleep learning. The last part of the book presents findings from two relatively new fields in the area of human performance. Chapter 10 considers socially induced affect, and thought suppression is the topic of the final chapter. Contains 1,190 references. (Kc)

This book examines the costs and benefits of ending the fighting in a range of conflicts, and probes the reasons why negotiators provide, or fail to provide, resolutions that go beyond just 'stopping the shooting.' A wide range of case studies is marshaled to explore relevant peacemaking situations, from the end of the Thirty Years' War and the Napoleonic Wars, to more recent settlements of the late 20th and early 21st centuries-including large scale conflicts like the end of WWII and smaller scale, sometimes internal conflicts like those in Cyprus, Armenia and Azerbaijan, and Mozambique.

Peace operation success : a comparative analysis by Daniel Druckman( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the critical need to understand when peace operations are effective and when they are failing, in order to identify the potential need for new approaches. In a field which often relies on vague benchmarks, editors Daniel Druckman and Paul Diehl offer one of the few systematic efforts at assessing peacekeeping success. The essays in this volumes use the framework provided in their award-winning book, 'Evaluating Peace Operations', for application to several recent cases of peace operations. The result is not only a greater understanding of those operations, but also a range of real world suggestions for how the framework might be tailored for use in different contexts
Evaluating peace operations by Paul F Diehl( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been a great deal written on why peace operations succeed or fail. ... But how are those judgments reached? By what criteria is success defined? Success for whom? Paul Diehl and Daniel Druckman explore the complexities of evaluating peace operation outcomes, providing an original, detailed framework for assessment. The authors address both the theoretical and the policy-relevant aspects of evaluation as they cover the full gamut of mission goals from conflict mitigation, containment, and settlement to the promotion of democracy and human rights. Numerous examples from specific peace operations illustrate their discussion. A seminal contribution, their work is a foundation not only for the meaningful assessment of peace operations, but also for approaches that can increase the likelihood of successful outcomes

Brain and cognition : some new technologies( )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In response to a request from the U.S. Army Research Institute (ARI), the National Research Council (NRC) formed a committee to undertake preliminary study of the development of the major new technologies in cognitive psychophysiology. The task of the committee was to examine four technologies: (1) event related brain potentials (ERPs), (2) the magnetoencephalogram (MEG), (3) the brain imaging techniques of positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and (4) the approach focused on studying patients with brain lesions or damage. For each technology the committee identified critical problems that must be resolved if farther progress is to be made; estimated the likelihood that such progress be made; and discussed opportunities for basic and applied research. The committee also discussed the implementation of an enlarged discipline applied cognitive neuroscience that combines psychophysiology, cognitive psychology, and computer modeling
