Enforcing the peace : learning from the imperial past by Kimberly Zisk Marten( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 2,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kimberly Zisk Marten argues that the West's attempts to remake foreign societies in their own image - even with the best of intentions - invariably fail. Focusing on operations in Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and East Timor in the mid- to late 1990s, while touching on both post-war Afghanistan and the occupation of Iraq, Enforcing the Peace compares these cases to the colonial activities of Great Britain, France, and the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. The book weaves together examples from these cases, using interviews Marten conducted with military officers and other peacekeeping officials at the UN, NATO, and elsewhere. Rather than trying to control political developments abroad, Marten proposes, a more sensible goal of foreign intervention is to restore basic security to unstable regions threatened by anarchy. The colonial experience shows that military organizations police effectively if political leaders prioritize the task, and the time has come to raise the importance of peacekeeping on the international agenda."--Jacket
Engaging the enemy : organization theory and Soviet military innovation, 1955-1991 by Kimberly Zisk Marten( )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 1,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did a "doctrine race" exist alongside the much-publicized arms competition between East and West? Using recent insights from organization theory, Kimberly Marten Zisk answers this question in the affirmative. Zisk challenges the standard portrayal of Soviet military officers as bureaucratic actors wedded to the status quo: she maintains that when they were confronted by a changing external security environment, they reacted by producing innovative doctrine. The author's extensive evidence is drawn from newly declassified Soviet military journals, and from her interviews with retired high-ranking Soviet General Staff officers and highly placed Soviet-Russian civilian defense experts. According to Zisk, the Cold War in Europe was powerfully influenced by the reactions of Soviet military officers and civilian defense experts to modifications in U.S. and NATO military doctrine. Zisk also asserts that, contrary to the expectations of many analysts, civilian intervention in military policy-making need not provoke pitched civil-military conflict. Under Gorbachev's leadership, for instance, great efforts were made to ensure that "defensive defense" policies reflected military officers' input and expertise. Engaging the Enemy makes an important contribution not only to the theory of military organizations and the history of Soviet military policy but also to current policy debates on East-West security issues. Kimberly Marten Zisk is Assistant Professor of Political Science and Faculty Associate of the Mershon Center at the Ohio State University
Warlords : strong-arm brokers in weak states by Kimberly Zisk Marten( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, through case studies, the author shows why and how warlords undermine state sovereignty. Unlike the feudal lords of a previous era, warlords today are not state-builders. Instead they collude with cost-conscious, corrupt, or frightened state officials to flout and undermine state capacity. They thrive on illegality, relying on private militias for support, and often provoke violent resentment from those who are cut out of their networks. Some act as middlemen for competing states, helping to hollow out their own states from within. Countries ranging from the United States to Russia have repeatedly chosen to ally with warlords, but Marten argues that to do so is a dangerous proposition. She draws lessons from these experiences to generate new arguments about the relationship between states, sovereignty, "local power brokers," and stability and security in the modern world
Weapons, culture, and self-interest : Soviet defense managers in the new Russia by Kimberly Zisk Marten( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do powerful people react to revolutionary circumstances? How quickly and effectively do elites adapt to, and shape, the structures of new social and political systems? Zisk offers a detailed examination of the unexpected ways Russian defense industrialists have acted in the new market economy. Bridging the gap between political economy and international security studies, Zisk plunges into the debate of whether rational self-interest or broader cultural norms explain behavior best, focusing on three institutions that structured the Russian defense managers' working life in the 1992-95 transition era: the large defense enterprises dating from Soviet times, the webs of political authority spanning both local and national levels, and the newly emerged, market-oriented spin-off firms."--Jacket

Reducing tensions between Russia and NATO by Kimberly Zisk Marten( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines how U.S. policymakers can deter Russian aggression with robust support for NATO, while reassuring Russia of NATO's defensive intentions through clear words and actions based in international law. Marten lays out several scenarios that could lead to a dangerous confrontation, ranging from an inadvertent encounter between NATO and Russian military aircraft or ships to an intentional Russian land grab in Europe. The report offers a plan for how the Donald J. Trump administration could work with Congress and NATO allies to lessen the chances of crisis escalation
