Paperback: $15.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
U.S. foreign policy and the domestic concerns of Middle Eastern states are influencing the pursuit of the global war on terror in the Middle East. A close view of Saudi Arabia reveals the complex... More > interaction of these forces. The U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia and the global war on terror are important challenges to the U.S. administration that have region-wide ramifications. Saudi Arabia has been facing down Islamist insurgency along with other challenges since September 11, 2001, and with even more urgency since May 2003. The Kingdom clearly remains a major political and economic force in the region. The income from its vast oil resources primarily has funded its strong influence, and the Kingdom has, in turn, sponsored poorer developing Arab nations. Furthermore, its Islamic influence has been apparent in the broader Muslim world, and the United States has maintained a strong relationship with the Kingdom for many decades.< Less
Strategic Implications Of Intercommunal Warfare In Iraq By W. Andrew Terrill, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.49
Prints in 3-5 business days
The future of Iraq is uncertain. The country is in a dangerous phase. The removal of a brutal dictatorship by coalition forces in April 2003 has given the Iraqi people hope for a new and better... More > political system, where individuals do not have to live in continuing fear and uncertainty. Nevertheless, the Iraqi people must also address the difficult challenges of self-government for a diverse population, with major ethnic and sectarian groups that often maintain widely divergent agendas. If they fail to do this and an ethnic/sectarian war ensues, the consequences will be dire, not only for Iraq, but for the entire Middle Eastern region. This monograph, by Dr. W. Andrew Terrill, does not predict an Iraqi civil war, which is the worst-case outcome for the current struggle in Iraq. Neither can this monograph fully rule out this possibility since the responsibility for preventing such an eventuality is ultimately Iraqi and not American, and U.S. analysts cannot predict...< Less

Paperback: $21.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
One of the hallmarks of the two Bush administrations’ foreign and defense policies has been a growing rapprochement with India. Indeed, in June 2005 the U.S. Government signed a defense...

Paperback: $14.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
David C. Hendrickson and Robert W. Tucker examine the contentious debate over the Iraq war and occupation, focusing on the critique that the Bush administration squandered an historic opportunity to... More > reconstruct the Iraqi state because of various critical blunders in planning. Though they conclude that critics have made a number of telling points against the Bush administration’s conduct of the Iraq war, they argue that the most serious problems facing Iraq and its American occupiers—criminal anarchy and lawlessness, a raging insurgency, and a society divided into rival and antagonistic groups—were virtually inevitable consequences that flowed from the act of war itself. Military and civilian planners were culpable in failing to plan for certain tasks, but the most serious problems had no good solution. The authors draw attention to a variety of lessons, including the danger that the imperatives of “force protection” may sacrifice the broader political mission of U.S. forces...< Less

Although Aristotle is well known as a philosopher, scientists acknowledge his influence in almost every branch of the sciences. He definitely benefited from Plato (his teacher) on matters of the... More > politis and the personality characteristics of the individual. What many modern thinkers forget is the impact that Aristotle made with his research into the specific sciences. In his Athenian academia, or Lyceum, Aristotle established his unique method of teaching - the peripatetic. Many of his biological experiments were backed by specimens sent to him by his ex-pupil Alexander the Macedonian. It is said that Alexander the Great collected samples from every country he conquered and forwarded them to his tutor. Aristotle established a scientific methodology which, even in modern days, influences the academic world. His research in biology, his writings in physics, and his afterthoughts (meta-after) his papers and lectures on physics (metaphysica) undoubtedly made an impact on the method of treating people.< Less
