Keeping the edge : managing defense for the future by Ashton B Carter( )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most national security debates concern the outcomes of policies, neglecting the means by which those policies are implemented. This book argues that although the US military is the finest fighting force in the world, the system that supports it is in disrepair. Operating with Cold War-era structures and practices, it is subject to managerial and organizational problems that increasingly threaten our military's effectiveness. Keeping the Edge goes beyond questions of Pentagon reorganization and weapons procurement to explore how the US defense establishment can improve its readiness, logistics, and ability to attract and retain qualified personnel. It also looks at how the US military can exploit information technology more effectively, improve its intelligence, and counter asymmetric threats. More comprehensive than the usual exhortation to cut waste, fraud, and abuse at the Pentagon, the book in fact recommends changes in many government agencies, not just the Department of Defense. It shows how the US can improve its ability to implement its policies and to anticipate and adapt to a changing and uncertain world

Preventive defense : a new security strategy for America by Ashton B Carter( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William J. Perry and Ashton B. Carter draw on their experience as leaders of the U.S. Defense Department to propose a new American security strategy for the twenty-first century. After a century in which aggression had to be defeated in two world wars and then deterred through a prolonged cold war, the authors argue for a strategy centered on prevention." "The authors' preventive defense strategy concentrates on the dangers that, if mismanaged, have the potential to grow into true threats to U.S. survival in the next century." "They also argue for better management of the defense establishment so the United States will retain a strong military prepared to cope with all contingencies deter aggressors and win a conflict it deterrence faits."--Jacket

Inside the five-sided box : lessons from a lifetime of leadership in the Pentagon by Ashton B Carter( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

-- The Pentagon is the headquarters of the single largest institution in America: the Department of Defense. The DOD employs millions of Americans. It owns and operates more real estate and spends more money than any other entity. It manages the world?s largest and most complex information network and performs more R&D than Apple, Google, and Microsoft combined. Most important, the policies it carries out, in war and peace, impact the security and freedom of billions of people around the globe.Yet to most Americans, the dealings of the DOD are a mystery and the Pentagon nothing more than an opaque five-sided box that they regard with a mixture of awe and suspicion.In this new audiobook, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter demystifies the Pentagon and sheds light on all that happens inside one of the nation?s most iconic and most closely guarded buildings. Drawn from Carter?s 36 years of leadership experience in the DOD, this is the essential audiobook for understanding the challenge of defending America in a dangerous world - and imparting a trove of incisive lessons that can guide leaders in any complex organization.In these times of great disruption and danger, the need for Ash Carter?s authoritative and pragmatic account is more urgent than ever
