The war on terrorism : 21st-century perspectives by Stephen Gale( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On September 11, 2001, a small number of desperate men hoping to earn paradise attacked New York and Washington, D.C. Their spectacular acts of destruction concluded America's nearly decade-long vacation from insecurity, known as the "post-Cold War era." As eras go, this one was short and it certainly ended with a bang, not a whimper. The United States, still sole superpower, was now challenged by a bleak new world. Americans do not care for the bleak and do not tolerate it for long. Predictably, national shock soon became righteous anger, coupled to international campaigns against groups and states held responsible for the scourge of terrorism. These were short-term measures that hurt our enemies but did not "fix" the problem.Not long after these events, the Foreign Policy Research Institute organized a new Center on Terrorism, Counterterrorism, and Homeland Security. Its purpose was to take a longer term view of the terrorism problem and what might be done about it--not only academic research but also policy suggestions. This book contains a broad selection of the Center's output, including essays on American strategy, homeland security, knowing the enemy, and the military dimension. A notable feature is the discussion of the educational issue: what and how to teach our children about terrorism."--Provided by publisher

Winning the Peace by Harvey Sicherman( )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper highlights the shortcomings of the US foreign policy in recent crises (Russia, the Balkans, East Asia). It advocates a new approach with four key elements. First, this policy must be rooted in a new conception of reality: that we live in a world where the technology of the West, not its ideals, is desired. Secondly, this diplomacy must be rooted in coalitions abroad and at home in order to magnify America's influence. Thirdly, US military strategy must endow America with more flexibility. Lastly, US economic strategy should seek long-term prosperity through expanding free trade, not illusory international fixes for domestic economic problems.--SCAD summary
