Added July 01, 2005
Law vs. War: Competing Approaches to Fighting Terrorism. Authored by Ms. Shawn Boyne, Mr. Michael German, Dr. Paul R Pillar, Dr. Dallas D. Owens.
The readings in this volume address one of the fundamental assumptions underlying the conduct of the War on Terrorism - the nature of our enemy, whether perpetrators of terrorist activities are criminals or soldiers (combatants).

Added June 01, 2005
The Strategic Implications of the Rise of Populism in Europe and South America. Authored by Dr. Steve C. Ropp.
Are U.S. policy planners adequately prepared to deal with a potential future burst of populist turbulence in Europe or South America? Steve C. Ropp looks at this understudied phenomenon and offers some suggestions to strategic planners for mitigating its effects on the global democratic core of representative democracies.

Added April 01, 2005
The Transatlantic Defense Industrial Base: Restructuring Scenarios and Their Implications. Authored by Dr. Terrence R. Guay.
The author examines the economic, political, technological, and security factors that have shaped recent developments in the U.S. and European defense industries. The author also identifies issues that will shape further industrial restructuring and consolidation in the short- and medium-term, and makes recommendations for assisting the development of a transatlantic, rather than bipolar, defense industrial base.

Added October 01, 2004
Civil-Military Cooperation in Peace Operations: The Case of Kosovo. Authored by Dr. Thomas R. Mockaitis.
The humanitarian intervention in Kosovo illustrates the challenges and possibilities of civil-military cooperation (CIMIC) in peace operations. Properly analyzed, this case study yields invaluable lessons that may inform the conduct of future missions. The current missions in Iraq and Afghanistan make this study timely and relevant.

Added July 01, 2004
Britain's Role in U.S. Missile Defense. Authored by Dr. Jeremy Stocker.
The future shape and effectiveness of U.S. missile defense will depend to some extent on the attitude and participation of America's key ally, Britain. This new monograph traces the history of British attitudes towards missile defense, and examines the UK's current policy on the subject.

Added February 01, 2004
Reconfiguring the American Military Presence in Europe. Authored by LTC Raymond A. Millen.
America has three basic options regarding the basing of ground troops in Europe--complete withdrawal, annual rotations, and restructuring the Alliance to accommodate a smaller U.S. presence. Restructuring NATO to nine integrated multinational divisions permits greater burden sharing and an expeditionary capability.

Added March 01, 2003
Strategic Effects of Conflict with Iraq: Europe. Authored by LTC Raymond A. Millen.
The vast majority of European states will contribute to the peacekeeping mission in Iraq if asked bilaterally. Given its proximity, the European Union can provide substantial economic and diplomatic resources for stabilizing the region. The European Union will seize upon the opportunities of greater regional democratization to practice diplomacy and crisis resolution.

Added November 01, 2002
European Adaptation to Expeditionary Warfare: Implications for the U.S. Army. Authored by Dr. Andrew M. Dorman.
The establishment of a European expeditionary force will be no easy matter, will require substantial investment, and will take years to complete. However, it is the right course for Europe to take. The European Union (EU) cannot manage emerging security issues using Cold War legacy forces because they are too ponderous to deploy. A lighter, more nimble expeditionary force is critical to EU policy.

Added September 01, 2002
The Bases of French Peace Operations Doctrine: Problematical Scope of France's Military Engagements within the U.N. or NATO Framework. Authored by Mr. Joseph Philippe Gregoire.
France believes that external threats to its vital and important interests spring more from potential instability on the periphery of Europe than from rival European powers. France has modified its military doctrine to reflect this strategic calculus, and France's conception of peace operations reflects this doctrinal change.
The Future of Transcaspian Security... Cover Image
Added August 01, 2002
The Future of Transcaspian Security. Authored by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
Explores the unprecedented opportunities that are now before the U.S. and recommends actions that the Government and armed forces should undertake to consolidate and extend the newly emerging military partnership and cooperative security regime that are now developing. The proper way to exploit them will become a subject of debate.

Pax NATO: The Opportunities of Enlargement. Authored by LTC Raymond A. Millen.
The process of NATO enlargement has served to harmonize Central and Eastern Europe with Western Europe in a remarkable manner. That achievement alone has made enlargement worthwhile. Beyond the next round of enlargement, the reorientation of NATO enlargement towards the Middle East and North African regions recognizes future threats. These regions may never receive the full security umbrella of NATO.

Added June 01, 2002
Tweaking NATO: The Case for Integrated Multinational Divisions. Authored by LTC Raymond A. Millen.
NATO's integrated military structure does not easily accommodate the new members, which still suffer from the effects of the Soviet system. Their nascent market economies and unsophisticated militaries represent great obstacles to NATO interoperability.

Added December 01, 2001
ESDP and Missile Defense: European Perspectives for More Balanced Transatlantic Partnership. Authored by Mr. Martin Aguera.
As the United States responds to a changing global security environment, the U.S. pursuit of missile defense and Europe's construction of European Security and Defense Policy (ESDP) have the potential to complicate U.S.-European security cooperation. However, rather than serving as wedges between the United States and Europe, both of these can help construct a better security relationship.

Added June 01, 2000
Multinational Land Forces and the NATO Force Structure Review. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
While there are arguably sufficient reaction forces to support NATO Ministerial Guidance, there are numerous weaknesses that would, and have, inhibited the efficient and effective deployment of land forces in crises. There are insufficient deployable reaction headquarters, both at the corps and component command level that would support a commander of a NATO Combined Joint Task Force.

Added May 01, 1998
Reforming NATO's Military Structures: The Long-Term Study and Its Implications for Land Forces. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
Often taken for granted, the Alliance's integrated command structure provides the basis for NATO's collective defense, and increasingly, as seen in Bosnia, its ability to undertake peace support operations. However, the very value by which nations hold the structure has resulted in a difficult and time-consuming reorganization process, which has produced only limited reforms.

Added December 01, 1997
Multinational Land Formations and NATO: Reforming Practices and Structures. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
Reduced national force structures, new NATO roles and missions emanating from the military implementation of Alliance Strategy and the rapid reaction requirements associated with the embryonic Combined Joint Task Forces (CJTF) Concept are but three of a multitude of inter-related issues.

Added November 01, 1997
NATO Enlargement and the Baltic States: What Can the Great Powers Do? Authored by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
NATO's enlargement has brought it to the borders of the Baltic states who covet membership in NATO. However, admitting them into NATO is one of the most difficult problems for the Alliance because of Russia's unconditional opposition to such action and because of NATO's own internal divisions on this issue. Nonetheless, a new regime or system of security for the entire Baltic region must now be on the U.S. and European agenda.

Added June 01, 1997
Command in NATO After the Cold War: Alliance, National, and Multinational Consideration. Edited by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
The effectiveness of NATO is largely due to the existence of its integrated and multinational command structure. That command structure, the cement of the Alliance, derives from the mutual obligations contained in Article V of the North Atlantic Treaty.

Added June 01, 1997
From Madrid to Brussels: Perspectives on NATO Enlargement. Edited by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
NATO's enlargement will be perhaps the most important defense and foreign policy issue of 1997. Certainly, its impact will exert a decisive influence on the future evolution of European security and the institutions that comprise it.

Added December 01, 1996
Force, Statecraft and German Unity: The Struggle to Adapt Institutions and Practices. Edited by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
Concerning Bonn's ongoing attempt to adapt institutions and practices, German policy making is clearly a manifestation of officials largely navigating in a little-known policy milieu. Realpolitik, let alone Machtpolitik (either as mere terms, let alone as concepts) are neither freely used in "polite" political discord in Germany, nor widely contemplated.

Added June 01, 1996
U.S. Participation in IFOR: A Marathon, not a Sprint. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen.
This monograph examines the potential for creating suitable conditions for a lasting political settlement in Bosnia by December 1996, identifies possible outcomes of a U.S. withdrawal from IFOR, and assesses potential consequences for U.S. national objectives and interests within the Balkans, and beyond. The conclusions will not sit well with most in the United States.

Prague, NATO, and European Security. Authored by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
One of the most likely candidates for future membership in NATO is the Czech Republic. Inasmuch as the debate over this issue is engaging chancelleries all over the United States and Europe, it is necessary to understand how the prospective members view European security issues, what they hope to gain from membership, and how their interests and security relationships mesh with NATO's.

Added May 01, 1995
NATO Strategy in the 1990s: Reaping the Peace Dividend or the Whirlwind? Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen.
The 1991 the Strategic Concept represents NATO's response to the dramatically changed security environment in Europe, and the intense desire to reap the resultant "peace dividend." The Strategic Concept dramatically expands the scope of the Alliance's security objectives and functions, takes NATO "out of area," and lays the foundation for massive forces cuts, as well as for a fundamental restructuring of Alliance military forces and command structures.

Added September 01, 1994
French Policy Toward NATO: Enhanced Selectivity, Vice Rapprochement. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen, Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
The authors of this report explain how French policy toward NATO has changed since 1992. Importantly, they discuss how these changes have been effected. However, certain key elements of French external policy have not changed. In effect, therefore, the authors argue that while France may wish to cooperate with NATO, this does not imply that there will be a more cooperative French attitude toward the Alliance.

Added August 01, 1994
Partnership for Peace: Discerning Fact from Fiction. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen, Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
The authors analyze and assess Partnership for Peace (PfP) from the perspective of the political realities which govern NATO. They counter the critics of PfP with an analysis of its exact provisions. Moreover, by drawing on the Alliance's historical record regarding expansion, they argue that PfP is the best and most realistic means available to resolve the prickly issue of NATO enlargement.

Added June 01, 1994
Trends in German Defense Policy: The Defense Policy Guidelines and the Centralization of Operational Control. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
Like most of its NATO allies, the Federal Republic of Germany has undertaken a massive restructuring of its armed forces. The end of the Cold War, the need for unified Germany to assume responsibility for its security, and the current economic recession have made German defense planning extremely difficult.
