Today, there are many questions and concerns about the... More > future of the Army Reserve and National Guard due to the unprecedented, continued mobilization of these reserve components and problems involving retention.

China And North Korea: From Comrades-in-Arms To Allies At Arm’s Length By Andrew Scobell & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
The relationship between China and North Korea surely ranks as one of world’s strangest. While on the surface, it might not seem surprising to have a formal military alliance between two... More > communist neighbors that has endured more than 4 decades. After all, their armed forces fought shoulder-to-shoulder in the Korean War 50 years ago. However, Beijing’s ties to Pyongyang have weakened considerably over time, and China now has much better and stronger relations with the free market democracy of South Korea than it does with the totalitarian, centrally planned economy of North Korea. In many ways Pyongyang has become a Cold War relic, strategic liability, and monumental headache for Beijing. Nevertheless, the China-North Korea alliance remains formally in effect, and Beijing continues to provide vital supplies of food and fuel to the brutal and repressive Pyongyang regime.< Less
Civil-Military Cooperation In Peace Operations: The Case Of Kosovo By Thomas R. Mockaitis & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
The U.S. missions to Bosnia and Kosovo and the current operation in Iraq make it clear that winning wars accomplishes little if we cannot also win the peace. The strategic goals for which the wars... More > are fought can only be achieved if the follow-on mission leaves an occupied territory more stable and democratic than before. Civilmilitary cooperation (CIMIC) is the key to achieving such stability. Although such cooperation has occurred in the past, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization developed its own CIMIC doctrine in response to the humanitarian interventions of the 1990s. Humanitarian intervention requires the intervening military force to provide security and lend its considerable assets to relief operations and rebuilding. CIMIC provides the mechanism for such cooperation and support. Like any concept employed in coalition warfare, CIMIC application varies widely. Examining diverse national approaches to CIMIC in the field reveals best practices and common mistakes.< Less

Paperback: $15.52
Prints in 3-5 business days
Central Asia is a key theater in the war on terrorism. It is a region of fragile new states, all facing a wide range of challenges. Ungoverned regions―the cauldron of terrorism―are... More > common. As the U.S. State Department notes, the United States, “learned a harsh lesson after we disengaged from Afghanistan in the early 1990s. We must not allow countries to become breeding grounds for extremism and terrorism. To prevent these destructive forces from taking root in Central Asia, we have intensified our efforts to help the countries of this area become stable, prosperous, and fully integrated members of the world community and the global economy.” The question is how to undertake this complex endeavor. In this monograph, Roger N. McDermott offers a framework for improving the antiterrorist capabilities of the Central Asian militaries.

Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
U.S. plans for missile defense have been a contentious issue in transatlantic relations for nearly 40 years. Notwithstanding the recent focus on events in Iraq, ballistic missile defense (BMD)... More > remains a significant part of American defense policy, and an aspect that continues to generate interest and concern abroad. At the same time, U.S. allies have potentially important roles to play in American missile defense and have developing requirements of their own. This monograph, by Dr. Jeremy Stocker, seeks to examine the many facets of the role that Britain, America’s closest and strongest ally, plays in missile defense, and to identify the ways in which disagreements can be minimized and cooperation enhanced, to mutual benefit.< Less
Checking Iran’s Nuclear Ambitions By Henry Sokolski et al.

Prints in 3-5 business days
In his introduction to the September 2002 National Security Strategy of the United States, President George W. Bush wrote, “The gravest danger our Nation faces lies at the crossroads of... More > radicalism and technology. Our enemies have openly declared that they are seeking weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and evidence indicates that they are doing so with determination. . . . Terrorists are organized to penetrate open societies and to turn the power of modern technologies against us.” Iran is the poster-child for the nexus of terrorism and WMD. It is the world's foremost state-sponsor of terrorism, as well as one of the countries most actively pursuing nuclear weapons. Washington is vigilant about Iran’s support for a network of Islamist terrorist organizations and persistent in pressing Iran to end its fi nancial, political, material, and operational support to them. At the same time, the United States has to come up with effective strategies to ensure that Iran does not acquire nuclear weapons.< Less
