Nato Cyberspace Capability: A Strategic And Operational Evolution By Jeffrey L. Caton & Strategic Studies Institute (SSI)
Paperback: $17.48
Prints in 3-5 business days
Several years ago, as the primary focus of U.S. military strategy shifted to the western Pacific region, many respected authorities began to question the relevance of the North Atlantic Treaty... More > Organization (NATO) in modern world events. More recent events, such as the Russian Federation’s annexation of Crimea, have given policy makers pause to question the wisdom of anticipated force cuts in Europe. Amidst this turmoil, the staffs of U.S. European Command and U.S. Army Europe have been establishing and refining their capabilities to conduct military operations in and through the cyberspace realm. If indeed the decision is made to pursue military action in cyberspace, what capabilities are available within NATO forces to accomplish such activities? What organization, doctrine, and methods would guide operators who perform such actions? In this monograph, Mr. Jeffrey Caton explores these questions within the broader context of the continued evolution of the NATO Alliance.< Less
The Transatlantic Security Agenda: A Conference Report And Analysis By Stephen J. Blank & Strategic Studies Institute

Immediately after the terrorist attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center, NATO members unanimously voted their support for the United States under Article V of the Washington Treaty. This... More > unprecedented action, the first time such a vote has occurred in NATO’s history, underscores the vitality of the Atlantic Alliance and its tremendous strategic value for its members. This vote conferred great legitimacy upon any response that the United States will make to those attacks and reminded us that the solidity of NATO allows the United States to defend its interests on the world stage with great confidence about European security. Nevertheless, the Alliance is not a wholly untroubled or static relationship. In the first half of 2001, there were numerous public signs of stress among the allies as they faced new challenges. Many of the issues involved in these tensions are particularly important to the future of European security and must be resolved for NATO to move forward...< Less
The Future of American Landpower: Does Forward Presence Still Matter? The Case of the Army in Europe (Enlarged Edition) By John R. Deni & Strategic Studies Institute

The utility of U.S. forward presence in Europe, placing the recent decisions—and in particular the arguments against forward presence—in the context of a decades’ long tradition on... More > the part of many political leaders, scholars, and others, mistakenly tie forward basing of U.S. forces to more equal defense burden sharing across the entire North Atlantic alliance. In assessing whether and how forward presence still matters in terms of protecting U.S. interests and achieving U.S. objectives, the author bridges the gap between academics and practitioners by grounding his analysis in political science theory while illuminating how forward basing yields direct, tangible benefits in terms of military operational interoperability. This monograph forms a critical datapoint in the ongoing dialogue regarding the future of American landpower, particular in this age of austerity.< Less
Waging Ancient War: Limits On Preemptive Force By D. Robert Worley & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $17.52
Prints in 3-5 business days
For decades, the idea of containment held together a political coalition within the United States that maintained a large, peacetime military for the only time in American history. The same strategic... More > conception held together a multinational military alliance. The strategic debate that followed the Cold War includes hegemonic primacy, classic collective security, cooperative security orienting on preventing the acquisition of power, selective engagement, and restrictive or neo-isolationist alternatives. But no political consensus has yet to form around any of these alternatives, nor does a consensus appear to be forming. The current debate is conducted in the familiar language of international relations and the U.S. position within the system of states. A major conclusion of this study is that the concepts on the use of force and the well-established language of international relations are inadequate to the current “war on terrorism.”< Less
An Arab NATO In The Making? Middle Eastern Military Cooperation Since 2011 By Florence Gaub & Strategic Studies Institute (SSI)

Prints in 3-5 business days
The Middle East and North Africa region has been one of the world’s most unstable areas since World War II, and yet, the nations of the region have failed to develop any form of security... More > architecture. The Arab Spring and its aftermath seemed to have opened a window of opportunity for certain Arab states to cooperate more—but how and to what extent remain to be seen. This Letort Paper explains why the region has struggled so far to establish cooperative security, and what obstacles need to be overcome on the way to a system akin to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Unless they are addressed, every new announcement of an alliance—be it of Arab, Islamic, Gulf, or other nature—will remain a pie in the sky. Just as the international community is yet again considering such an architecture—perhaps even including Iran—this idea and its implementation are more important than ever.< Less
Reconfiguring The American Military Presence In Europe By LTC Raymond A. Millen & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $14.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
What does NATO bring to U.S. national security in practical terms? This rhetorical question seeks not so much to provoke debate than to invoke NATO’s potential. In the post-Cold War era,... More > especially during the war on terrorism, NATO’s raison d’être must expand beyond securing the immediate borders of member states. In this monograph, Lieutenant Colonel Raymond Millen examines America’s choices regarding the basing of ground troops in Europe. He considers three major options available to the United States—complete withdrawal, annual rotations, and restructuring the Alliance to accommodate a smaller U.S. presence. While weighing the advantages and disadvantages of each option, he does not lose sight of the ultimate objective of NATO—to provide credible land power for the full spectrum of operations.< Less

More > monograph, Dr. W. Andrew Terrill highlights Jordan’s ongoing value as a U.S. ally and considers ways the U.S.-Jordanian alliance might be used to contain and minimize problems of concern to both countries. Although Jordan is not a large country, it is an important geographical crossroads within the Middle East and has been deeply involved in many of the most important events in the region’s recent history. Now, the importance of this relationship has increased, and Jordan has emerged as a vital U.S. ally in the efforts to stabilize Iraq and also resist violent extremism and terrorism throughout the region.< Less
New NATO Members: Security Consumers or Producers? [Enlarged Edition] By Joel R. Hillison & Strategic Studies Institute

This monograph examines the burden-sharing of new members in NATO. Qualitative and quantitative methods are used to test the hypothesis that new NATO members are burden-sharing at a greater rate... More > than older NATO members. An analysis of the burden-sharing behavior of NATO’s 1999 wave of new members reveals that new NATO members have demonstrated the willingness to contribute to NATO missions, but are often constrained by their limited capabilities. However, new member contributions to NATO have improved and, in comparison to older NATO members, the new members are doing quite well. The United States should focus on improving the capabilities of the new members while encouraging its older allies to increase their own contributions to the alliance where feasible.< Less
Stepping Up: Burden Sharing by NATO’s Newest Members By Strategic Studies Institute et al.
Paperback: $28.95

Burden sharing is back. Indeed many observers of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Alliance would claim that it never went away. This is because, from its inception in 1949, NATO has... More > never been an alliance of equals. The United States has always made the overwhelmingly larger contribution, not only for the defense of Europe under Article 5 of the NATO Treaty, but also in the numerous operations that the Alliance has carried out beyond Europe since the end of the Cold War. At one stage in the late-1950s, the United States had nearly 400,000 troops and 7,000 nuclear weapons deployed in Western Europe. It also maintained large stocks of pre-positioned equipment and sent thousands of more troops back to Europe every year for reinforcement and exercises.< Less
