Strategic challenges : America's global security agenda by Stephen J Flanagan( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores seven looming strategic challenges facing the United States: tackling global terrorism, stopping WMD proliferation, protecting the homeland, defusing conflicts in unstable regions, engaging other major powers, strengthening relations with allies and partners, and undertaking defense transformation. The authors of each chapter take a similar approach: defining the problem at hand, explicating current U.S. efforts to master the challenge, and analyzing choices that U.S. policymakers will face in the next decade and, as appropriate, the consequences of alternative courses of action. Strategic Challenges capitalizes on the great regional and topical expertise of current and former members of the professional research staff at the Institute for National Strategic Studies at the National Defense University to present an authoritative overview of the global environment that the United States faces."--Jacket
"In the same light as slavery" : building a global antiterrorist consensus( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

". . . to make clear that all acts of terrorism are illegitimate so that terrorism will be viewed in the same light as slavery, piracy, or genocide: behavior that no respectable government can condone or support and all must oppose." ... National Security Strategy of the United States, 2002. It did not take long after 9/11 for the American government and public to realize that a critical obstacle to combating terrorism effectively was the surprising willingness of people in many parts of the world to excuse or, worse yet, applaud terrorist acts, depending on the cause in whose name they were committed. Notwithstanding the enormity of the attacks on New York and Washington and the wave of sympathy for the United States expressed in most quarters in the immediate aftermath, simply reaching international agreement on the meaning of terrorism proved impossible once someone intoned the mantra that "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter." To overcome the attitudes that generated support for terrorism among key elements of the world's population, the Bush administration concluded that it would be necessary to build a global antiterrorism consensus. Working from the grassroots up, the United States would persuade people that the intentional use of violence against noncombatants for political ends was evil in itself regardless of the merits of the cause to which terrorism was used. The administration's recognition of the need to undertake such an effort found its most memorable public expression in the words quoted in the epigraph above

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

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 474 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

Military implications of United Nations peacekeeping operations by William H Lewis( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The actions by the United Nations Security Council in the matter of Iraq's attempt to annex Kuwait have lead some observers to conclude that the United Nations is now well positioned to play a consequential role in the maintenance of international order. The coalition formed to meet Iraq's aggression included thirty-seven member states from five continents. This successful action represented a significant precedent for future preventive diplomacy and collective security actions by the world body. As one senior Canadian official somewhat exuberantly observed, a powerful message has been sent: 'the United Nations, can as it was intended, safeguard world order and security.'

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

8 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and held by 465 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
