China-Russia Security Relations: Strategic Parallelism Without Partnership Or Passion? By Strategic Studies Institute, Richard Weitz
Paperback: $20.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
Chinese-Russian security relations directly concern many subjects of interest to the Strategic Studies Institute. These areas include regional conflicts, nonproliferation issues, and military force... More > balances. Given the importance of these two countries in international affairs, however, almost any foreign policy action of their governments affects some American national interest. For almost 2 decades, China and Russia have been strengthening their security ties. Nonetheless, as this monograph makes clear, the relationship between Beijing and Moscow remains in flux. In some cases, they share overlapping interests. In other instances, they compete for power and wealth, particularly for oil and gas resources. Many factors will affect Sino-Russian ties— including developments within China and Russia as well as external events. As part of this mix, American policies will also have some impact on the future foreign behavior of both countries.< Less
AGAINST ALL ODDS: RELATIONS BETWEEN NATO AND THE MENA REGION By Strategic Studies Institute, Florence Gaub
Paperback: $12.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
The Middle East and North Africa might not be the first region that comes to mind when one contemplates the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). To many, the Alliance was founded largely to... More > unite Europe and North America, and to counter threats emerging from the Soviet bloc. The end of the Cold War changed these assumptions—not least to be proven by NATO’s Operation in Libya in 2011, sanctioned by the League of Arab States. In this monograph, Dr. Florence Gaub describes how the region has moved from the rim of the Alliance’s security perspective toward a more nuanced vision that recognizes the region’s role in an ever-changing and more-complex world. NATO has understood the security implications emerging from the changes taking place among its southern neighbors and the need for dialogue and cooperation. Dr. Gaub gives not only an overview of the different frameworks of cooperation that NATO has with the Middle East and North Africa, but also explains their evolution and potential.< Less
The Evolution Of U.S.-Turkish Relations In A Transatlantic Context - Colloquium Report By Strategic Studies Institute, Frances G. Burwell
Paperback: $17.96
Ships in 3-5 business days
Since World War II, the relationship between Turkey and the United States has been characterized by complexity and flux; there have been periods of remarkable cooperation, even when significant... More > disagreements existed. Relations between the two countries are never merely bilateral, for the two are also linked to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the European Union (EU). The relationship between those two organizations is also complicated because of differing core purposes and somewhat differing memberships. Current Turkey-U.S. diplomatic and military relations are more strained than in recent years, but both countries recognize how vital it is to address issues of mutual importance. In mid-2007 the Atlantic Council, Strategic Studies Institute, and German Marshall Fund of the United States jointly organized a conference to discuss the current state of U.S.-Turkish-EU ties and to consider how those relations might be repaired and enhanced.< Less
North Korean Foreign Relations In The Post–Cold War World By Strategic Studies Institute, Samuel S. Investigation
Paperback: $17.96
Ships in 3-5 business days
North Korea’s foreign relations are a blend of contradiction and complexity. They start from the incongruity between Pyongyang’s highly touted policy of juche, or self-reliance, and North... More > Korea’s extended and heavy reliance on foreign aid and assistance over the 6 decades of its existence. This aid—both military and economic—in the first 4 decades came from China, the Soviet Union, and communist bloc states; in the past 2 decades, this aid has come from countries including China, South Korea, and the United States. In this monograph, Dr. Samuel Kim examines North Korea’s foreign relations with China, Russia, Japan, the United States, and South Korea during the post-Cold War era. He argues that central to understanding North Korea’s international behavior in the 21st century is the extent to which the policies of the United States have shaped that behavior. Although some readers may not agree with all of Dr. Kim’s interpretations and assessments, they nevertheless will find his analysis simulating...< Less

Paperback: $14.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
As a global power, the United States has often been required to balance and manage good relations with a host of states that view each other with suspicion and hostility. In no other region of the... More > world has this problem been more acute than the Middle East, where difficulties between the Palestinians and Israelis continue to complicate U.S. policy. In recent times, U.S. Middle Eastern policy has been especially challenging as the result of differing regional perspectives on the global war on terrorism, the U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the post-war U.S. military presence in that country. In this important monograph, Dr. Lenore Martin of Emmanuel College addresses the challenge that U.S. policymakers face in managing relations with numerous regional allies, including Israel and a host of moderate Arab states. These states often maintain differing concerns and are responding to diverse domestic and international pressures when they seek to influence the United States.< Less

Paperback: $17.94

Ukraine has been a pivotal actor in Eurasia since its independence in 1991. Ukraine’s destiny is critical to the security of the entire post- Soviet zone, and both it and the United States... More > always have acted on that assumption. The stated goal of Ukrainian defense policy long has been to integrate with Euro-Atlantic structures like the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and this goal has been one of the chief objectives of the United States, as well. However, to move from rhetoric to implementation is particularly difficult where the defense reform of a post-Soviet state has been concerned, and Ukraine is no exception. Nevertheless, in the past few years Ukraine has begun to make remarkable progress towards its self-professed goal of defense integration with Western structures.< Less
