Overcoming uncertainty U.S.-China strategic relations in the 21st century by Walter N Anderson ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mutual uncertainty colors every aspect of U.S.-China relations. America worries that China will use its growing military power in pursuit of its expanding interests. Beijing fears the U.S. will try to prevent it from achieving its comprehensive modernization goals. Thus, there lingers an omnipresent perception on both sides that the United States and China are on a road to inevitable confrontation. Policy makers and defense planners on each side are, therefore, required to hedge against some future, undefined, military threat from the other which, in turn, feeds mutual distrust. This paper offers a range of policy steps that would work to overcome mutual uncertainty and advance responsibly U.S.-China relations. Changes in the global strategic environment, China's prospects for development, and the full range of vital and important bilateral security issues are explored, including both sides' goals, interests, and strategic perspectives regarding these issues. Bilateral military relations are also addressed, including why and how they should support the overall security relationship. Ultimately, this paper is intended to provide a framework for a balanced debate on China policy that would contribute to improved stability and predictability in U.S.-China relations

The next peace operation U.S. Air Force issues and perspectives by William C Thomas ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study examines the role of the Air Force in future peace operations. The authors draw upon the experience of the US and other nations to improve understanding of how peacekeeping forces operate and shed light on how best to employ American forces. This paper reviews existing US military doctrine and examines the impact on combat readiness. The authors then suggest areas for consideration regarding the preparation for conduct of peace operations. Air Force doctrine is not required so long as appropriate doctrine for various functional areas is incorporated into strategies and operation plans. Coercive airpower can play a role in peace operations, but the most powerful contribution of airpower is likely to come through air mobility As long as the American government and public feel that peace operations will help promote national security interests, the US military will be called upon to participate in those missions alongside many other agencies. This paper neither advocates the use of military forces for peace operations nor recommends they not be employed. It address the current reality, and it should help military members understand the very unusual tasks they will no doubt be called upon to perform in the next peace operations
