The French army before Napoleon; lectures delivered before the University of Oxford in Michaelmas term, 1914 by Spenser Wilkinson( Book )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many know of the French army that marched under Napoleon's eagles to triumph after triumph before the Emperor's last gamble failed at Waterloo. However, the army that drove the French all the way to Moscow was victorious in many battles in previous wars, and at its heart were the noble officers. The theories and insights of the officer corps shaped the thinking of all of Europe, not least the strategic thinking of Napoleon. Professor Wilkinson charts the advances in tactics and the progression of thought within the military circles of France that would dominate not only the French themselves, but all of their opponents. Professor Spenser Wilkinson had a long and illustrious career as a military historian including holding the seat of Chichele Professor of Military History of Oxford. Author - Professor Spenser Wilkinson (1853-1937) Text taken, whole and complete, from the edition published in Oxford, Clarendon press, 1915

Social-psychology profile of terrorist leaders in Israeli prisons by Sagit Yehoshua( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this study is to investigate the Social~psychology profile of terrorist leaders in Israeli prisons. The research was conducted with the cooperation of the Intelligence Department of the Israeli Prison System. The study is qualitative and was conducted through in~depth interviews with leaders of terrorist organisations in prisons around Israel. A total of 18 Palestinian leaders were interviewed in several prisons around the country. The participants were leaders of major terrorist organisations in Israel: Fatah, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The research focuses on five main themes: 1. Social influence factors: Adolescence, family, social surroundings, the organisation and their influence on the leader's adjustment to imprisonment. 2. Personality profile of the leaders and whether they have symptoms of a psychopathic personality based on Hare psychopathy check list (PCLSV) 3. Mindset: General perspectives such as rationalisations for committing terrorist acts, perceptions towards the victims, Israeli society and their actions in relation to the conflict. 4. Leadership profile: What kind of leaders are they? How do they perceive this position? How do they see their conduct and achievements as leaders? Would they want to continue their leadership position outside of prison? 5. Imprisonment: the effect of the prison experience and their radicalisation or de-radicalisation process. The main findings of this research suggest that the leaders of terrorist groups in Israeli prisons are going through a unique process while incarcerated, that psychopathic personality profile was found among them and their rationalisations for carrying out the terrorist acts are quite varied. Furthermore, the findings of this study highlight the importance of the aspects of social surrounding and culture on the prisoner's mind-set and conduct, as well as on their adjustment to imprisonment and their radical isation or deradicalisation process
The narrative delusion : strategic scripts and violent Islamism in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Yemen by Benedict Wilkinson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This PhD explores the strategic decision-making processes of violent Islamist movements in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The primary aim of this research is to investigate how these organisations formulate and select strategy. The research constructs an interdisciplinary approach to decision-making based on strategic scripts, which are viewed as cognitive structures that allow strategists to form expectations about how a sequence of events might unfold, enabling a potentially successful course of action to be selected. The research argues that there are a limited number of scripts available to violent Islamists: survival, power play, mobilisation, provocation, de-legitimisation, attrition, co-operation and de-mobilisation. The case study chapters are devoted to establishing the existence and nature of the eight scripts and to investigating how they unfold when operationalised, focusing on the interplay between terrorist action and government counter-terrorism reaction. The major conclusion is that while scripts govern decision-making by fostering expectations about the outcome of strategic options, there is a pervasive disparity between the way in which scripts, as theoretical visions, should unfold and the way in which strategies actually unfold. The final chapter argues that this disparity is a consequence of 'narrative delusion'. It argues that strategic scripts are not simply cognitive structures, but also stories about the future, describing how situations evolve and conclude. The problem for strategists is that even credible stories can mislead by smothering the role played by luck, shortening the distance between cause and effect or oversimplifying the impact of human agency. But because scripts are persuasive stories, violent Islamists often remain blind to their inherent fallacies
