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.'

The Mitterrand legacy and the future of French security policy by Ronald Tiersky ( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 468 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
Arabism and Islam : stateless nations and nationless states by Christine Moss Helms ( Book )

Energy and national security by Patrick Clawson ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 455 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
