Winning the War by Winning the Peace: Strategy for Conflict and Post-Conflict in the 21st Century
Authored by Colonel Lloyd J. Matthews, USA Ret..
The SSI Annual Strategy Conference theme for year 2004 was "Winning the War by Winning the Peace: Strategy for Conflict and Post-Conflict in the 21st Century." The participants probed into the question of how the West can capitalize, in this new century of omnipresent terrorism, on its superior military and economic might to achieve a satisfying and enduring modus vivendi. The search for answers to this central question was lent added relevance and urgency by the fact that the allied anti-insurgency wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were transpiring even as the conference proceeded.

Getting MAD: Nuclear Mutual Assured Destruction, Its Origins and Practice
Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski.
With the deployment of defenses of American cities against missile attacks, the Bush administration has explicitly rejected the strategic doctrine of nuclear mutually assured destruction (MAD).

The United States and Iraq's Shi'ite Clergy: Partners or Adversaries?

Checking Iran's Nuclear Ambitions
Edited by Mr. Henry D. Sokolski, Mr. Patrick Clawson.
The fear about what Iran might do with nuclear weapons is fed by the concern that Tehran has no clear reason to be pursuing nuclear weapons. The strategic rationale for Iran's nuclear program is by no means obvious. Unlike proliferators such as Israel or Pakistan, Iran faces no historic enemy who would welcome an opportunity to wipe the state off the face of the earth.
