Strategic appraisal : the changing role of information in warfare by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in information technology have led us to rely on easy communication and readily available information--both in our personal lives and in the life of our nation. For the most part, we have rightly welcomed these changes. But information that is readily available is available to friend and foe alike; a system that relies on communication can become useless if its ability to communicate is interfered with or destroyed. Because this reliance is so general, attacks on the information infrastructure can have widespread effects, both for the military and for society. And such attacks can come from a variety of sources, some difficult or impossible to identify. This, the third volume in the Strategic Appraisal series, draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND to explore the opportunities and vulnerabilities inherent in the increasing reliance on information technology, looking both at its usefulness to the warrior and the need to protect its usefulness for everyone. The Strategic Appraisal series is intended to review, for a broad audience, issues bearing on national security and defense planning

The United States and a rising China : strategic and military implications by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 2,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China has been embarked on a process of reform and modernization that has led to unprecedented economic development. The goal is to make China a developed country, which would, among other things, raise the standard of living and prepare the base for a strong military. The Chinese leadership considers good relations with the United States to be strongly advisable, if not absolutely necessary, but sovereignty concerns (especially with regard to Taiwan) could cause tensions in the Sino-U.S. relationship. China could emerge, by 2015, as a formidable power, one that might offer an alternative to the current U.S. role as the region's preferred security partner and its ultimate security manager. At present, the best U.S. response appears to be a combination of engagement and containment, a "congagement" policy that would continue to try to bring China into the current international system while both preparing for a possible Chinese challenge to it and seeking to convince the Chinese leadership that a challenge would be difficult and extremely risky to pursue
Sources of conflict in the 21st century : regional futures and U.S. strategy by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the millenium approaches, defense analysts begin to wonder how many of today's leading adversaries will remain adversaries. Will longstanding allies change their orientation? Who will be called on to intervene, and where? Can we expect stability, or chaos? This book examines current political trends and potential sources of conflict in three critical regions - Asia, the Greater Middle East, and Europe and the former Soviet Union - through the year 2025. The authors describe possible alternative strategic "worlds," including a projection of today's mixed political climate, a more benign world in which the great powers are at peace and are actively cooperative, and a world beset with economic, demographic, and political turmoil. Additional chapters provide a detailed discussion of regional trends and their meaning for strategy and planning. Through thoughtful analysis of current trends and the careful projection of the political-military climate of the future, defense planners will be better equipped to take on the challenges of the 21st century
Strategic appraisal : United States air and space power in the 21st century by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Change--in international relations, in technology, and in society as a whole--has become the idiom of our age. One example of these changes has been an increasing recognition of the value of air and space assets for handling nearly every contingency from disaster relief to war and, onsequently, increasing demand for such assets. These developments have created both challenges and opportunities for the U.S. Air Force. This, the fourth volume in the Strategic Appraisal series, draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND to explore both the challenges and opportunities that the U.S. Air Force faces as it strives to support the nation's interests in a challenging technological and security environment. Contributors examine the changing roles of air and space forces in U.S.national security strategy, the implications of new systems and technologiesfor military operations, and the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. securitystrategy. Contributors also discuss the status of major modernizationefforts within the Air Force, and the bill of health of the Air Force, asmeasured by its readiness to undertake its missions both today and in thefuture

The future of Turkish-Western relations : toward a strategic plan by Zalmay Khalilzad( )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the European Union's Helsinki Summit in December 1999, Turkey was declared a candidate for EU membership. But European and U.S. stakes in Turkey continue to evolve in today's post-Cold War era, influenced in no small part by Turkey's geopolitical position as a "pivotal state." The United States is concerned with Turkish support for U.S. freedom of action in key regions, and Turkey wants to ensure that it will have EU and U.S. assistance in managing its own regional challenges. MR-1241-SRF explores the significance of changes on the Turkish domestic scene, as well as the contours of Ankara's increasingly active external policies. The report goes on to discuss Western stakes in the future of a changing Turkey. The authors offer an agenda for closer strategic cooperation in the U.S.-Turkish-European triangle, focusing on key issues such as relations with Russia, energy security, containing weapons proliferation risks in the Middle East, and reinforcing Turkish convergence with the European Union
Strategic appraisal, 1996( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Arabic and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today, the United States possesses military predominance, and American political and economic ideas have broad global appeal. Almost all of the economically capable nations are our allies. Yet the end of the Cold War has also brought an increase in disorder as a result of the rise in ethnic nationalism and the fragmentation of several states. And these are not the only complications in the current strategic situation. The old U.S. grand strategy--its stand against the Soviet Union--has become moot, and a new one must be devised in the face of a changing world. This book discusses this need and examines three possible strategies. It goes on to discuss the complexities of current geopolitical trends and describes the demands these situations might place on the U.S. military and, in particular, the Air Force
Strategic appraisal 1997 : strategy and defense planning for the 21st century by Zalmay Khalilzad( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication brings together the views of several experts in both the process and substance of defense planning. It argues that an ambitious U.S. national strategy of global leadership will be needed to protect and advance U.S. interests and identifies a range of possible future missions for which we need to prepare. Essays in the volume explore key issues that will arise as the United States fashions its military forces for the coming decades. These include: the roles of military power in U.S. national security strategy; new approaches to planning and evaluating future military force postures; the nature of future military challenges, both in defeating large-scale aggression and meeting smaller-scale threats; which operational capabilities should receive the highest priority; what level of forces future budgets are likely to support; and how the Department of Defense should downsize its infrastructure and reform its management practices. This volume will be of interest to professional defense planners and analysts, as well as students of defense strategy and operations
The implications of the possible end of the Arab-Israeli conflict for Gulf security by Zalmay Khalilzad( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is intended to help the U.S. military--especially the U.S. Air Force--capitalize on changes in the Middle East security environment that may come about after a comprehensive Arab-Israeli peace. It offers an overview of how the Arab-Israeli dispute has complicated U.S. efforts to defend the Persian Gulf region and details ways in which Israeli participation might aid the U.S. Air Force in future crises if peace reduces the stigma attached to an Israeli security role in the area. The report concludes by noting the implications of the above points for the U.S. military
From containment to global leadership? : America & the world after the Cold War by Zalmay Khalilzad( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its victory in the Cold War, the United States is now the world's preeminent military and political power. It has the world's largest economy. It leads the world in many areas of technology. It faces no global rival and no significant hostile alliances. Most of the world's economically capable nations are U.S. allies. Three years after the end of the Cold War, however, no new grand design has yet jelled, and this failure carries large opportunity costs. Now is the time for the United States to decide upon a new grand strategy to guide the nation's direction for the future. The report identifies options for a new U.S. architectural framework. During the Cold War, U.S. foreign and security policies were guided by the objective of "Soviet containment." Today, does the country need a new vision and grand strategy? What options are there to choose from, which is the best, and why? And what are the preferred option's implications for America's foreign and security policies and its military forces? The report seeks to answer these questions and offers seven principles that should guide U.S. policies
Lessons from Bosnia( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report documents the August 5, 1993 proceedings of the first in a series of RAND seminars entitled "Lesser Regional Crises/Peace Enforcement." It includes four essays: "Turning Points in Bosnia and the West" by Jim Steinberg, examines whether a different reaction by the United States, the West, or the international community at large at different points in the Bosnia crisis might have produced preferable results. The author also assesses what we can learn from this crisis in dealing with future ones. "Turning Points in Bosnia and the Region," by Alan Fogelquist, describes the various stages in the evolution of the fighting in Bosnia and changes in the strategies of the protagonists. The author describes some ominous new scenarios that the crisis may still produce. Cheryl Benard, who has interviewed some 250 Bosnians in camps in Europe, analyzes the dynamics of ethnic cleansing. In "Bosnia: Was it Inevitable?" she raises questions about the degree of popular support for Serb expansionism, and asks whether current Western policy might be unwittingly encouraging ethnic nationalism. And in "Bosnia as Future," author Albert Wohlstetter outlines a strategy that the United States and the other democracies should follow now in dealing with the ongoing conflicts in Bosnia. In doing so, he argues that Bosnia is a test case for likely future conflicts across Europe, making it all the more important that the aggressors in Bosnia be defeated
New-concept development : a planning approach for the 21st century Air Force by Leslie Lewis( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the economic model of demand, supply, and integration, the authors discuss the elements that shape the demand when attempting to define strategic direction and potential investment strategies in the next 15 to 20 years. There is an emphasis on nonmateriel solutions in the supplying of new ideas, as well on allowing new concepts to be shared throughout the Air Force. The integration process filters new ideas against demand and enables the Air Force to link new concepts to resource investment processes, such as the PPBS. The linkages to the planning and resourcing processes within the Air Force could be examined in greater detail, however. Some of the issues that should be addressed are how proposed new concepts might be identified as useful, how new-concept development and long-range planning should be functionally and organizationally supported, and how might new-concept development and long-range planning be implemented and sustained
A composite approach to Air Force planning by Paul K Davis( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the 1996 Presidential election, the Department of Defense (DoD) will probably conduct a major review of national military strategy and the current basis of force planning, the Bottom-Up Review. In preparation for this review, what issues should the Air Force consider, what planning methods should be brought to bear, and when? The authors address these questions and note that there is no single best planning method. Different methods focus on and deal with different generic planning activities, and no method stands alone or constitutes a complete methodology. If undertaken by creative minds, most of the techniques discussed here will do a good job for the Air Force (and for the DoD more generally). But it is particularly important to allow and encourage participants to break the shackles of conventional wisdom--not only about current realities, but about what the nature of the future will be, about what "good" strategic planners are "supposed" to assume about the future, and what types and levels of forces are allegedly "required."

Prospects for the Afghan interim government by Zalmay Khalilzad( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report assesses the prospects for the Afghan Interim Government (AIG) formed by the Pakistan-based mujahedin leaders in February 1989 after the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. It focuses on the following issues: (1) whether the AIG is an asset, a liability, or of no importance in the conflict between the mujahedin and the Kabul regime; (2) the attitude of key commanders, the Afghan leaders based in Pakistan, and other noted Afghans toward the AIG; (3) the prospects for broadening the AIG; (4) the alternatives proposed by the important Afghans--the AIG leaders, resistance commanders, and the former king--on how the AIG should be broadened or replaced; (5) the implications if the AIG is not broadened; and (6) the alternatives to the current AIG
