The United States and a rising China strategic and military implications ( )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,035 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
Strategic appraisal the changing role of information in warfare by Zalmay Khalilzad ( )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,992 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 Asia toward a new U.S. strategy and force posture ( )
11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The past 20 years have been a time of relative peace in Asia and, notwithstanding the 1997-1998 financial crisis, a period of robust economic growth as well. Currently, however, Asia is beset by a variety of problems that could well imperil the stability it has long enjoyed -- including territorial disputes, nuclear rivalry, rising nationalist sentiments, and increased military capabilities. This report summarizes the manner in which the United States can best meet these challenges and thereby ensure continued peace and stability in the region. In the interests of this goal, the report outlines an integrated political, military, and economic strategy that the United States can pursue to inhibit the growth of rivalries in Asia and, more broadly, prevent the rise of instability in the region. Also delineated are changes in U.S. military posture that will be made necessary by this strategy

Strategic appraisal United States air and space power in the 21st century by Zalmay Khalilzad ( )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 450 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
Strategic appraisal, 1996 ( Book )
8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Arabic and held by 270 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 ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 233 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 )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 203 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
New-concept development : a planning approach for the 21st century Air Force by Leslie Lewis ( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 159 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

Extending the Western Alliance to East Central Europe : a new strategy for NATO by Zalmay Khalilzad ( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this issue paper, Khalilzad argues that NATO must be extended to the nations of East Central Europe to prevent instability in that region. Such extension would have the added benefit of reinvigorating NATO, which otherwise risks dissolution due to economic friction among its members. He recommends that NATO provide full membership to East Central European nations once each state has a stable democratic polity and market economy. In the interim, NATO should enhance ties with these states by, for example, conducting military exercises with them. He also urges operationalizing NATO's peacekeeping role by prepositioning equipment in East Central Europe, establishing a peacekeeping training and support center there, and conducting peacekeeping and humanitarian relief exercises with the militaries of those countries

From containment to global leadership? : America & the world after the Cold War by Zalmay Khalilzad ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
