The new great game in Muslim Central Asia by Mohammed E Ahrari( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dismantlement of the Soviet Union also brought about the liberation of six Central Asian Muslim republics-Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Although Azerbaijan is part of the Caucasus region, it is included in this study because: the independence of that country, like that of the Central Asian states, was brought about as a result of the dismantlement of the Soviet Union. Azerbaijan like its Central Asian counterparts is a Muslim state, and faces similar politico-economic problems. Azerbaijan's conflict with Armenia involving Nagorno-Karabkh reminds one of a number of conflicts in the Central Asian region. these include a seething ethnic conflict in Kazakhstan (involving the Khazaks and the Slavs), the ongoing civil war in Tajikistan along ethnic, national, and religious lines (since the Russian forces are also involved in this civil war), and the ethnic conflict in the Fargana valley that cuts across the borders of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Like the economies of its Central Asian neighbors, the Azeri economy was largely dependent on the economy of the former Soviet Union. Consequently, like its other neighbors. Azerbaijan is also busy establishing economic self-sufficiency, along with strengthening its religious political, linguistic, and ethnic identities

The Mitterrand legacy and the future of French security policy by Ronald Tiersky( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Francois Mitterrand was the living link between France's Cold War and post-Cold War security policy. Generally speaking, Mitterrand's leadership in foreign and security policy was impressive. His masterful security policy performance during his first term (1981-1988) gave way to much criticized hesitations and uncertainties during the transition from Cold War to post-Cold War problems. Yet, overall, Mitterrand's legacies in foreign and security policy are a source of some confidence to President Chirac. There are two parts to the issue of evaluating Francois Mitterrand's legacy in French security policy. One is the heritage of 14 years of French policy. Not everything was Mitterrand's responsibility, and, given France's interests, much of what he did would have been done, better or worse, by any French president. The other is, what aspects of the legacy are particularly Mitterrand's work? Did Mitterrand's own views, for example, prolong certain policies that otherwise would likely have been changed? Will certain of his policies, controversial or inadequate, be rapidly changed after his departure from office? Are there notable Mitterrand policies likely to characterize French security policy for a long time? Chapter 1 provides background information on France and Post-Cold War European Security and Mitterrand's Legacy. Chapter 2, Concepts and Doctrine, addresses The New Nexus of Security and Integration; The Security Concern of Muslim Fundamentalism; The Crise des Fondements: Gaullism, National Interest, and European Security; and Bosnia, France, and European Security. Chapter 3, Some French Military Trends, looks at Force Development: The 1995-2000 Military Plan, Mitterrand's Nuclear Legacy, and The Nuclear Test Moratorium. Chapter 4, Institutional Developments, focuses on The Balladur Cohabitation Government, A French-British Defense Axis?, Developing the OSCE, and An Inter-African Peacekeeping Force? Chapter 5 discusses After Mitterrand. (42 refs.) 7
Energy and national security by Patrick Clawson( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is broad consensus that the United States must maintain a military readiness to defend oil supplies if needed. The need for a military component to energy security is made more manifest by the concentration of oil resources in the politically volatile Persian Gulf. The market forces which the U.S. government is encouraging should make the United States and world economy more dependent of Persian Gulf oil, which is the cheapest source of energy available. That concentration of energy production in one area makes the world economy more vulnerable to supply disruptions, including by a dictator eager to create a temporary shortage that drives up prices or encourages others to turn a blind eye to his aggressive plans

Arabism and Islam : stateless nations and nationless states by Christine Moss Helms( Book )

6 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1980s, Islamic activists in the Arab Middle East have challenged the definition of "legitimate authority" and provided the means and rationale for revolutionary change, hoping to pressure established governments to alter domestic and foreign policies. No nation-state has been immune. Fearful Arab nationalist leaders, unwilling or unable to abandon decades of ideological baggage, have begun a gradual, if erratic, process of melding the spirit and letter of Islamic precepts into existing national laws and political rhetoric. Whether it is adequate to the challenge, the state nevertheless bears the onus of accommodation, because Islam and Arabism will not soon disappear. They will assume new form and substance in the changing realities of the region. Dilemmas inherent to this century and the gauntlet delivered to hitherto unquestioned political caveats will continue to exacerbate the competition between Islam and Arabism, their quest for political platforms and supporters, and the credibility of all other claimants, including the state. Visions of the future, especially when they are sacred and apocalyptic, can never be entirely freed of historical, emotive baggage. Even if Islamic political activism and pan-Arabism diminish in their intensity, they will endure as subtle, formative forces in all aspects of life. Indigenous inhabitants are fully aware that these influences have profound resonance in their lives. At the same time, these forces act like invisible sentinels in the mind, standing ready to cast a long shadow as unconscious motivators of political behavior. Sections are as follows: Declaration of Crisis; Pluralism: Minorities in the Arab World; Stateless Nations and Nationless States: Twentieth Century Disunity; Search for Unity: An Arab Sunni Core; Arabs and Non-Arabs: The Myth of Equality; Fatal Wounds: Universal Islam Takes the Offensive; and The State: Visionary Futures

The major powers in northeast Asian security by Ralph A Cossa( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The political, economic, and security environment of the Asia-Pacific region in the 21St century will be shaped in very large part by the interrelationships among the United States, Japan, China, and Russia. To the extent these four nations can cooperate, a generally benign environment can develop in which the challenges sure to develop in the region can be managed. Conversely, tensions and conflict among the four will have a profoundly destabilizing impact regionally, if not globally. This monograph addresses the future roles and interests of the four major Asia-Pacific powers and how their policies will affect security in Northeast Asia and, more specifically, on the Korean Peninsula as we enter the 21St century. Each of these powers is undergoing a transition of sorts. In the case of the United States and possibly Japan, the changes may be more of style than substance, but will impact their respective foreign policy outlooks nonetheless. In the case of China and especially Russia, the potential for significant change is much greater. There is a high degree of unpredictability regarding the future paths of these two nations as we approach the 21st century. The future course and behavior of the two Koreas, individually and (at some unpredictable point in the future) together, add to the uncertainty. While the four major powers have the ability to influence events on the Korean Peninsula, they cannot direct or fully orchestrate them. On the other hand, actions by the Koreas can force policy choices by the big four that they might otherwise not pursue; the Korean 'tail' has on occasion proven itself capable of wagging some very large dogs

What is information warfare? by Martin C Libicki( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is Information War (IW) a nascent, perhaps embryonic art, or simply the newest version of a time-honored feature of warfare? Is it a new form of conflict that owes its existence to the burgeoning global information infrastructure, or an old one whose origin lies in the wetware of the human brain but has been given new life by the information age? Is it a unified field or opportunistic assemblage? Since March 1993, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Memorandum of Policy Number 30 (MOP 30) has set forth definitions and relationships that have guided the joint community in its thinking about the related concepts of information warfare and command and control warfare. As these seminal ideas have evolved, their definitions and relationships have changed as well. MOP 30 is under revision, and both higher level policy documents for the Department of Defense and doctrinal publications of the Joint Staff and Services are either in draft form or under revision
