Managing instability on China's periphery by Paul B Stares( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If past experience is any guide, the United States and China will find themselves embroiled in a serious crisis at some point in the future. With the goal of encouraging a broader assessment of potential sources of friction in U.S-China relations and how they might be mitigated, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) embarked on this study. Following the introductory overview of the principal issues that could put the United States and China on a collision course, CFR fellows discuss three countries on China's periphery, North Korea, Myanmar, and Pakistan, as well as the collection of Central Asia states. Each paper considers current sources of instability, potential crisis triggers, U.S. and Chinese interests, where they converge and diverge, and policy options for preventing a major crisis and mitigating the consequences
The militarization of space : U.S. policy, 1945-1984 by Paul B Stares( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the front jacket flap: Contrary to widespread expectations in the wake of Sputnik, outer space did not immediately become a new arena for a superpower arms competition. Although the United States and the Soviet Union began to use space extensively for military purposes, both exhibited relatively little interest in the development of space weaponry. By the beginning of the 1980s, however, an arms race in space seemed inevitable. Now both the United States and the Soviet Union have developed the means to disable satellites and are now also considering the deployment of ballistic missile defenses in space. Why were these weapons never extensively developed earlier? What changed in the late 1970s to reverse the predominant trend in the militarization of space? What are the lessons for arms control and for Soviet-American relations in general? Paul Stares addresses these fundamental questions by examining the factors that have shaped United States policy towards the military use of space and in particular the development of antisatellite weapons. States relies heavily on declassified documents found in Presidential libraries and made available under the Freedom of Information Act, and he obtained additional information from a comprehensive series of interview with former members of the U.S. government and armed services. By judicious use of this material, he provides the first detailed account of United States space weapons policy and programs. An invaluable source of information for defense analysts and scholars of international relations, The Militarization of Space is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand present United States military space policy and its implications for the future

Preventive engagement : how America can avoid war, stay strong, and keep the peace by Paul B Stares( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States faces an increasingly turbulent world. The risk of violent conflict and other threats to international order presents a vexing dilemma: should the United States remain the principal guarantor of global peace and security with all its considerable commitments and potential pitfalls - not least new and costly military entanglements - that over time diminish its capacity and commitment to play this vital role or, alternatively, should it pull back from the world in the interests of conserving U.S. power, but at the possible cost of even greater threats emerging in the future? --

Enhancing U.S. preventive action by Paul B Stares( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this Council Special Report the authors evaluate the U.S. system for foreseeing and heading off crises. They assess in detail current U.S. practices with regard to different types of preventive action, examining such topics as intelligence community analyses; "watchlists" of states at risk; interagency planning processes; foreign assistance programming; and the work of the State Department office created in 2004 to lead U.S. government efforts in this area. The report cites an array of shortcomings in how the government plans and conducts its preventive activities, a situation that can leave policymakers scrambling to respond to crises after they break out. To improve this, the authors recommend a variety of steps, including revising and strengthening the strategic planning process under the leadership of the National Security Council, improving and consolidating intelligence products and connecting them more closely to policymakers, and providing additional funding for preventive efforts
