China s Security

Showing how economic, technological, and bureaucratic factors have reshaped Chinese military thinking and behaviour, this text questions the perception of a China threat and provides an appraisal of the Chinese military establishment, emphasizing the interplay of domestic and external forces.

Conquering Resources

In Professor Ostrov's study, however, conflict is shown to have a supra-Cultural Revolutionary institutional basis in this and other key units.

Conquering Resources

This case study seeks to explain how organizations grow and the limits to that growth when an organization engaged in policy implementation lacks the resources necessary to achieve policy goals. The discussion of the basis of conflict that emerges from this study is of lasting significance. For years, studies of this issue have pointed to various models of factionalism, stressing the informal character of the groups involved. In Professor Ostrov's study, however, conflict is shown to have a supra-Cultural Revolutionary institutional basis in this and other key units.

Combat Zoming

Most of the land acquisition occurred in the West. In Idaho the U.S. Air Force requested 1.3 million acres to expand existing bombing ranges. The National Guard sought a 1-million-acre tank-training range in Montana.

Combat Zoming

Loomis provides a clear and disturbing picture of military land-use planning and how it has affected residents in Nevada. He contends that a lack of citizen participation in the development of land-use plans is a weakness in the planning process and that both the military and the citizenry should take an active role to avoid future conflicts.

The new dangers and challenges to international security in Europe after the Cold War are examined in this book.

Security and Arms Control in Post confrontation Europe

This book examines the need for a redefinition and restructuring of arms control at a time when most European nations no longer perceive each other as near-term threats, and when security concerns have shifted from external to internal sources.

China s Arms Acquisitions from Abroad

The People's Republic of China seeks to attain military strength commensurate with its growing regional and international influence and to close the military-technological gap which has long separated it from the other major powers. To achieve its military modernization goals, China will continue its efforts to import the critical weapons and technologies it requires. Yet, for reasons rooted in both historical and contemporary contexts, China faces many difficulties and setbacks in this quest. China's Arms Acquisitions from Abroad documents and analyses the 150-year effort by China to strengthen its military forces through arms imports. Based on an historical understanding of this process, the report focuses mainly on contemporary transfers of weapons and technologies to China, particularly those from the Soviet Union and Russia, but also including imports from Israel, France, the United Kingdom, the United States and other suppliers. Relying on primary sources as well as on the most comprehensive collection of open-source data and information available on the subject, the report provides extensive documentation and a balanced assessment of past, current and likely future developments regarding Chinese arms imports. This unique study will prove useful to experts and officials concerned with security and regional affairs in East Asia.

Buying Military Transformation

In Buying Military Transformation, Peter Dombrowski and Eugene Gholz analyze the United States military's ongoing effort to capitalize on information technology. New ideas about military doctrine derived from comparisons to Internet Age business practices can be implemented only if the military buys technologically innovative weapons systems. Buying Military Transformation examines how political and military leaders work with the defense industry to develop the small ships, unmanned aerial vehicles, advanced communications equipment, and systems-of-systems integration that will enable the new military format. Dombrowski and Gholz's analysis integrates the political relationship between the defense industry and Congress, the bureaucratic relationship between the firms and the military services, and the technical capabilities of different types of businesses. Many government officials and analysts believe that only entrepreneurial start-up firms or leaders in commercial information technology markets can produce the new, network-oriented military equipment. But Dombrowski and Gholz find that the existing defense industry will be best able to lead military-technology development, even for equipment modeled on the civilian Internet. The U.S. government is already spending billions of dollars each year on its "military transformation" program-money that could be easily misdirected and wasted if policymakers spend it on the wrong projects or work with the wrong firms. In addition to this practical implication, Buying Military Transformation offers key lessons for the theory of "Revolutions in Military Affairs." A series of military analysts have argued that major social and economic changes, like the shift from the Agricultural Age to the Industrial Age, inherently force related changes in the military. Buying Military Transformation undermines this technologically determinist claim: commercial innovation does not directly determine military innovation; instead, political leadership and military organizations choose the trajectory of defense investment. Militaries should invest in new technology in response to strategic threats and military leaders' professional judgments about the equipment needed to improve military effectiveness. Commercial technological progress by itself does not generate an imperative for military transformation. Clear, cogent, and engaging, Buying Military Transformation is essential reading for journalists, legislators, policymakers, and scholars.

The Silent Revolution

The Silent Revolution is the first book to chart the worldwide development of the whole spectrum of modern weapons systems since the closing years of the Second World War.

The Silent Revolution

"The awful threat of nuclear war has tended to blind people to the great advances in conventional weapons technology that occurred in the latter half of the twentieth century. These were years of unprecedented investment in research and development, and despite the cost, of unparalleled scientific advancement. The Silent Revolution is the first book to chart the worldwide development of the whole spectrum of modern weapons systems since the closing years of the Second World War." "Guy Hartcup's comprehensive study covers the many new weapon systems ranging from guided missiles to chemical weapons that have revolutionised air, land and sea warfare, and equally important, the scientific applications including electronics, communications and sensors, as well as the ability of the fighting man to handle new equipment. As a former official historian to the UK Air Ministry and the Treasury, he draws extensively upon official documents now released under the thirty year rule and upon the mass of unclassified material in the public domain covering more recent developments on both sides of the Atlantic. He has produced a unique study in which not only the weapons systems and their technology are examined but also the internecine strife between the services, each competing for a bigger share of the defence budget, and the impact of this and countless political cancellations on new projects." "The book ends on a timely warning against the dangers of succumbing to what the author calls 'technophilia', reminding us that, despite the widespread use of new technological wonders in the Gulf War, much of the weaponry used was based on technology going back tens of years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Culture of Defense

Chris Van Aller demonstrates that a better understanding of the complicated civil-military relationship in the United States is prerequisite to reforming the expensive and often inefficient military establishment maintained since World War II. Arguing that reduced defense expenditures and adequate national security are both possible, this book illustrates how American political culture remains deeply ambivalent about national security. Though significant budget cuts have been implemented over the past five years, Van Aller takes a closer look at the fact that no true reorganization or reconceptualization has taken place. For policy makers, historians of American military history and anyone who cares about this complex topic, The Culture of Defense will be indispensable reading.
