The Indian Air Force : trends and prospects by George K Tanham( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides an overview of the Indian Air Force (IAF). It is part of a larger effort to examine air forces in a range of important nations to see how those organizations think about the past, current, and future role of air power in support of their national security. Following a short summary of Indian defense policy, the report reviews the birth and development of the independent IAF, analyzing its role in the series of conflicts that India has been engaged in since independence, and discussing some of the doctrinal issues that these conflicts have illuminated. Finally, the report analyzes the evolution of the IAF's force structure and assesses the prospects for Indian air power

Indian strategic thought : an interpretive essay by George K Tanham( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report analyzes the historical, geographic, and cultural factors influencing Indian strategic thinking: how India's past has shaped present-day conceptions of military power and national security; how Indian elites view their strategic position vis-a-vis their neighbors, the Indian Ocean, and great power alignments; whether Indian thinking follows a reasonably consistent logic and direction; and what this might imply for India's long-term ability to shape its regional security environment. The author identifies four principal factors that help explain Indian actions and views about power and security: Indian geography; the "discovery" of Indian history by Indian elites over the past 150 years; Indian cultural and social structures and belief systems; and the British rule, or raj. India has a predominantly defensive strategic orientation, although some leaders now seek a more offense-oriented strategy. India retains a longstanding commitment to strategic independence and autonomy, although its economic, industrial, and technological shortcomings continue to limit the success of such a strategic design. Indians realize that the high technology being developed for India's longer-term defense has implications for Indian strategy. Domestic and budgetary constraints will continue to limit Indian military power for many years
New Caledonia : the fragile peace by George K Tanham( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note examines the current political situation in New Caledonia and the prospects for independence for this French Territory in the Southwest Pacific. The analysis is based primarily on the author's two visits to the territory in 1989 when he spoke with leaders of both the indigenous and European communities, local officials, and private citizens. Increasing disruption and violence of the independence movement was ended by the Matignon Accord of 1988, which promised a referendum on independence in 1998 and divided the territory into three autonomous provinces, two of which are controlled by the indigenous population. The French government is providing generous assistance for political, social, and economic development. Whether such assistance and limited self-government will frustrate the drive for independence is uncertain. Although the current situation is relatively stable and peaceful, conditions remain volatile
Countering covert aggression by Stephen T Hosmer( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Note considers how the United States might better counter covert aggression. Among other issues, the study (1) examines the uses of terrorism, subversion, and insurgency as instruments of state policy; (2) analyzes the principal constraints on U.S. freedom of action to deter or respond to such aggression; and (3) suggests policy and operational measures that might help the United States and its allies to cope with covert aggression in the future."--Rand abstracts
Papua New Guinea today by George K Tanham( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Note examines the current status and recent history of Papua New Guinea, the largest of the recently independent island states of the South Pacific, in the context of the security of the nation and the region. Central to Papua New Guinea's problems are (1) its internal conflict between tribal customs and emergence into the modern world; and (2) relations with its two closest neighbors, Indonesia and Australia. The authors judge that the United States is pursuing the correct policies toward this emerging nation, but they caution that internal conflicts and prickly relations with Indonesia could change suddenly, threaten the security of the area, and possibly involve the United States
The Kingdom of Tonga by George K Tanham( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Note, part of a study on security trends in the South Pacific, is based on library sources, interviews, and observations the author made during a week spent in Tonga in March 1988. It touches on Tongan politics and economic conditions, and focuses on a reform group in Tonga that is likely to become quite strong in coming years. An appendix presents a paper on Tonga in the 1990s by a Tongan citizen, Professor Futa Helu, who delivered it at the New Zealand Institute for International Affairs in May 1985"--Rand abstracts
Security trends in the South Pacific : Vanuatu and Fiji by George K Tanham( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the South Pacific island nations are very small and undeveloped, their location astride routes that are strategically important to the United States magnifies their significance. In the last two decades, however, the goodwill of most islanders toward the United States and the West has declined. Anti-Western attitudes have grown out of changing institutions and organizations, encouraged by foreign advocates and fostered by churches, labor unions, anticolonial groups, and the antinuclear movement. In many cases, advocates connected with one or more of these groups have merged their causes in an effort to spread an overall anti-Western and anti-United States gospel. In recent years, the Soviet Union has gained goodwill in the area with little expenditure of resources. Soviet representatives visiting the area advocate peace, a nuclear-free Pacific, the reduction of all military forces in the area, and the abolition of foreign bases. The United States and the West should take countervailing steps to retrieve the goodwill that they have lost. Ameliorative measures might include increased aid, assistance to labor unions, and aid to education. They should counter the anti-Western rhetoric with positive information about the West and above all, increase official interest and exchanges with the islanders. (jhd)

The Soviet Union in the South Pacific by George K Tanham( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper describes the effective campaign by the Soviet Union to gain influence in the South Pacific. Specifically, it discusses pacts, exchanges, etc., between the Soviet Union and South Pacific nations; Soviet manipulation to increase anti-colonialism and other anti-Western feelings; the Independent and Nuclear-Free Pacific movement; the influence of churches in achieving Vanuatu's independence; and the influence of unions in achieving Fiji's. The author laments Western complaisance and recommends that the West recapture lost ground by responding more favorably to the islanders' experiences, needs, and wishes."--Rand Abstracts
