War Powers in the 21st Century By Committee on Foreign Relations United States Senate
eBook (ePub): $8.99
Uncertainty over Congress's role in two successive wars - Korea and then Vietnam - led to the passage of the War Powers Resolution in 1973. I think it's fair to say it was significantly a reaction to... More > America's longest war, one that pulled the country apart and left many questions about responsibilities and Presidential decisions. The resolution, which today's witnesses recommend repealing, has been controversial ever since it was enacted over President Nixon's veto. The 1973 resolution represented Congress's best effort to try to clarify and make concrete its role in the decision to go to war. That resolution required that the President consult with Congress prior to, and on a regular basis after, U.S. forces were deployed. More controversially, the law required that the President withdraw our forces within 60 days of their deployment into combat, absent specific congressional authorization or an extension of the deadline by Congress.< Less

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

As this monograph goes to press, the nuclear agreement negotiated between Iran and the so-called P5+1—the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council consisting of the United... More > States, France, the United Kingdom, Russia, China, plus Germany—is the subject of heated debate within Washington. The negotiations that produced the agreement perhaps best exemplify the efforts by the Barack Obama administration to use diplomacy to address the most vexing security challenges of the day. The United States and Iran have struggled to overcome mutual hostility and distrust stemming from the 1953 coup against the Mohammad Mossadegh government and the 1979-80 hostage crisis, not to mention Teheran’s use of Hezbollah as a proxy against American ally Israel. Yet despite this, the administration persisted over several years to first intensify and broaden economic sanctions against Iran, and then to engage in painstaking negotiations with an authoritarian country that routinely and methodically employs...< Less

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN: Mujahideen Tactics in the Soviet-Afghan War By Ali Ahmad Jalali et al.
Paperback: $34.25
Prints in 3-5 business days
On 27 December 1979, Moscow ordered the Soviet Army into Afghanistan. Organized, equipped, and trained for the execution of combined arms operations, that force embodied the concept of blitzkrieg.... More > Nine years later, it withdrew in defeat. The Other Side of the Mountain was written from the reports of mujahideen combat veterans and provides a tactical look at a decentralized army of footmobile guerrillas waging war against a technologically superior foe. Absolute supremacy of firepower did not guarantee victory. Native knowledge of terrain and detailed study of a known adversary offset that advantage. In particular, the chapter on urban combat will be of great interest to commanders concerned with force protection. This book and its companion volume, The Bear Went Over the Mountain: Soviet Combat Tactics in Afghanistan, published for the United States Marine Corps in 1996, offers a chronicle of the Afghan War by the warfighters.< Less
