Is Japan capable of grand strategy when it comes to foreign policy? Modern Japan faces challenges on every front: from a rising China and constrained economic growth at home, to an ever-present threat posed by an increasingly unstable North Korea, to an evolving and complex relationship with the West that for so long has served as the bedrock of Japanese foreign policy. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has garnered significant attention for his policies undergirding a path of "proactive pacifism" for Japan, but many questions remain unanswered with regard to what Japan's global role ought to be, what it can be, and what that role's development would mean for the greater stability of the region and the fate of broader geopolitical alliances across the world. While it is clear that both Japan and its allies would be best served by a clear, comprehensive, and forward-thinking Japanese foreign policy blueprint, but actually developing and implementing such a policy is understandably easier said than done. Fortunately, shaping this new strategy is a generation of Japanese foreign policy experts with eyes toward the future of Japanese power and diplomacy. In Strategic Japan: New Approaches to Foreign Policy and the U.S. Japan Alliance, five preeminent scholars: Yasuhiro Matsuda, Tetsuo Kotani, Hiroyasu Akutsu, Yoshikazu Kobayashi, and Nobuhiro Aizawa discuss Japan's changing role in the world and the high stakes policy issues affecting Japan, Asia, and the world today. Taken together, these experts' contributions highlight potential areas for enhanced cooperation between the United States and Japan at a time when the West desperately needs a confident and proactive Japan, and Japan needs sustained American engagement and deterrence in an Asia-Pacific region that will continue to be the sight of economic growth and expansion for years to come.

Barack Obama's Post-American Foreign Policy Bloomsbury Academic

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Barack Obama's election was widely perceived as a turning point in American foreign policy after the controversial and often divisive period under George W. Bush. The great expectations for change in style and substance were significantly, possibly permanently, tempered according to Robert Singh's analysis at the midway point of Obama's first term. The distance between the "change euphoria" of November 2008 and the reality of today is the result of two key factors. First, the international problems confronting Obama appear intractable, especially with the United States stretched thin, both economically and militarily. Equally important, the partial delivery of Obama's "change agenda" has been criticized by conservatives as advancing America's decline and by liberals as showing continuity with the policies of his Republican predecessor. Singh argues that Obama's international approach of "strategic engagement" and his search for the pragmatic ideological middle have cost him political support at home and abroad and have failed to make decisive gains. As such, while assessing his foreign policies to the emergence of what is becoming a "post-American" world, the president has yet to craft or preside over a long-awaited renaissance in American global leadership.

British Policy and Strategy Towards Norway, 1941-45 INGRAM INTERNATIONAL

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Norway came to take up a surprising amount of the British military establishment's attention between 1940 and 1945. Norway's invasion and subsequent occupation forced Britain to reassess its relationship with Norway, a country largely on the periphery of the main theatres of the Second World War. This occurred at all levels of political and military decision making, from the grand strategic concerns of Winston Churchill and the British chiefs of staff to the tactical problems of the airmen in Royal Air Force squadrons and sailors of Destroyers and Motor Torpedo boat flotillas. In this fascinating study, Chris Mann sheds light on the Royal Naval and Combined Operations organisation's extensive operations on and around the Norwegian Coast and their relationship to the Battle of the Atlantic and the Normandy Landings and for the first time, reveals the political, military and intelligence issues surrounding British involvement after the campaign of 1940.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Western Europe, printed single-sided, grade: Gut, School of Advanced Internatl. Studies (School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS)), course: Europe after the Cold War, 14 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Most of the second half of the 20th century was marked by a strong German-American relationship whose primary roots were the United States military contributions in the fight against Nazi-Germany during World War II and its generous Marshall Plan to help rebuild a moribund German post-war economy. After the outbreak of the Cold War, deepening the transatlantic relations was a strategic necessity for both sides of the Atlantic, given the imminent geopolitical threat from the communist Soviet Union. In the decades to follow, ameliorating the partnership with the United States was, besides fostering European integration, the major goal of German foreign policy.However, the transatlantic relationship changed significantly after the end of the Cold War in the early 1990s. In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 the German-American relationship was put to a particularly hard test. Although the Schröder administration s first reaction was unlimited solidarity and support for the invocation of Article 5 of the NATO treaty, Germany did not support the United States decision to go to war in Iraq, which implied serious tensions with the Bush administration. This paper s purpose is to show how the relationship between Germany and the United States has evolved during the last five years. In the first part, I would like to illustrate the evolution of Germany s foreign policy towards the United States in the aftermath of September 11 until the outbreak of the Iraq war. I will describe the primary factors leading to the drastic deterioration of transatlantic relations, such as chancellor Gerhard Schröder s opportunistic exploitation of the Iraq issue in his election campaign. But the leaders personalities alone do not suffice to explain the whole picture. Thus the paper s second part will elaborate on the German public mood, characterized by anti-Americanism, pacifism, and emancipation from the United States. The third part will be dedicated to the question why Bush and Schröder s successor Angela Merkel get along so well given their different backgrounds and taking into account that the Grand Coalition has not significantly changed policy on issues of division with Bush. An outlook in the future of the German-American partnership will conclude the paper in the fourth and last part.

Literature Review from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: USA, grade: 1,0, Indiana University (Department of Political Science), course: United States Foreign Policy, language: English, abstract: The future of America s position in the world is a hotly debated topic and this paper will review two books on American power and military capability. Zbigniew Brzezinski observes in Strategic Vision that a shift in world power occurs and so has to change the strategy of the USA. He assesses different liabilities and assets that need to be considered in dealing with these changes. Rachel Maddow however has a different emphasis in Drift and is concerned about the development of perpetual American war and the responsible but unchecked executive branch. In the following will be argued that while other nations may rise, the USA can still sustain its position of power, if it considers the research of Brzezinski and Maddow to be of relevance. Reforms at home and readiness to transition into a world shared with nations that rise or come back to their old greatness will be needed to use America s power and resources in the future more wisely. America will continue to be a world power if it avoids mistakes it makes right now at home and embraces the new realities of the world.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Globalization and the American worker is a path-breaking work on economic policy in a global age. It debunks the myths that clutter the political debate over globalization, focusing instead on the hard challenges America faces in building a stronger economic future. The book highlights the need to embrace the challenge of competing in the global economy, while making the investments in America's workers that they need to compete in world markets. It underscores the importance of adaptability in a time of accelerating economic change and explains how economic policy can encourage or hinder the ability of workers and firms to adjust to the changes that globalization has wrought. The book provides concrete recommendations for trade and tax policy, education, health care, labor, technology and range of other areas that would help build a new social contract between America and its greatest asset, its workers.


American Deep State - 2826673607

American Deep State Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This provocative book makes a compelling case for a hidden "deep state" that influences U.S. policy far more than American citizens realize. Prominent political analyst Peter Dale Scott examines the decline in American global power and prestige, together with a rise in income disparity, from the long and costly Vietnam War era to the present. He argues that the decline is partly explained by a series of what he calls structural deep events, from the assassination of President Kennedy to 9/11. Scott does not attempt to solve these mysteries, but he points to elements they have in common, ranging from overlapping personnel and distinctive modes of operation to shared sources of off-the-books funding. Scott traces these commonalities to what he calls the deep state, a second level of government behind the public or constitutional state that has grown much stronger since World War Two, and especially since 9/11. He documents many ways in which the deep state is partly rooted not only in non-accountable intelligence agencies like the CIA and NSA, but also in private corporations like Booz Allen Hamilton and SAIC, to which two-thirds of current intelligence budgets are outsourced. Behind these public and private institutions is the powerful influence of Wall Street bankers and lawyers, allied with international oil companies that operate beyond the reach of domestic law. With the increased importance of Gulf States like Saudi Arabia to oil markets, American defense companies, and Wall Street itself, there is now a supranational deep state, which this essential book demonstrates is repeatedly at odds with official American policies and public interest. Specifically the American state has waged an ongoing war against Al Qaeda and its allies, while elements of the American deep state have repeatedly assisted, used, and protected them.

This work examines the labyrinth of complexities that confronts the Intelligence Community in its efforts to provide accurate and timely intelligence in support of American foreign policy and national security interests. Kennedy begins with an analysis of the collection processes and the obstacles that must be overcome if accurate and meaningful information is to be obtained. He addresses such issues as the need for strategic vision and clarity in setting priorities, as well as constraints imposed by the executive branch and the complexities associated with translating priorities into collection programs. The focus then shifts to the obstacles that confront those tasked to analyze collected information, examining such issues as the impact of people, technology, and budgets on the overall analytical effort. The third area of emphasis for Kennedy centers on the quality control of collection and analysis, addressing both Executive Branch and Congressional Oversight of the intelligence processes. Finally, he examines issues associated with the distribution and use of the intelligence products - the so-called end game obstacles. Issues addressed include the lack of presidential support for and confidence in the Intelligence Community, the impact of worst-case planning, and the coloring of intelligence to suit policy preferences. Ultimately, the component parts provide the reader with a broad understanding of the Intelligence Community and the difficulties it faces as it strives to keep the United States safe and informed. In the wake of recent intelligence failures, the Intelligence Community has come under increasing attack. Yet few people outside of government, and all too frequently many inside of government, do not understand just how difficult and complex are the processes of collecting, analyzing, disseminating, and effectively using gathered intelligence. The purpose of this undertaking is to illustrate the many road blocks the Intelligence Community confronts as it attempts to meet the needs of policymakers and to provide the average American, students of foreign and security policy, and many inside of government with a more comprehensive understanding of the overall intelligence effort. The complex processes for identifying, prioritizing, and communicating requirements to the intelligence community are further complicated by a lack of strategic vision on the part of American policy makers. Kennedy contends that those problems are compounded by Executive department oversight of the Intelligence Community, which has contributed significantly to past failures of intelligence. Moreover, the lack of effective oversight by Congress of the Intelligence Community in terms of the quality of its product upon which Congress has often been required to make life and death decisions too often has been either seriously deficient or non-existent. All too frequently, Kennedy notes, what could be called political coloring adversely affects the intelligence product. Intelligence findings are often colored to suit the preferred policies of decision-makers. As a result, actions are taken based on assumptions and opinions that are not supported by existing intelligence.

Road to Big Week Pacifica Military History

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

THE ROAD TO BIG WEEK The Struggle for Daylight Air Supremacy Over Western Europe July 1942 - February 1944 By Eric Hammel The Road to Big Week begins with a thorough examination of American development of a strategic bombing doctrine from its earliest conception in the years after World War I. Balancing the demands of the ground army's desire and need for air support and the visionary outlook of such early Air Corps leaders as General Billy Mitchell with the cash-strapped circumtances of the Great Depression and the limitations imposed by the Congressional peace lobbies, the Air Corps was able to deliver a fully formed doctrine that could not at first be supported by adequate aircraft nor even a public acknowlegement that the drive to perfect strategic bombing was even on. Before the doctrine or a fully funtional heavy strategic bomber were quite perfected, the United States was drawn into World War II. Facing numerous obstacles unperceived during peacetime, not the least being simple bad weather, the early American efforts to mount a strategic bombing campaign in northern Europe nearly failed in the face of unsustainable casualties and ineffective strategic direction. Only the belated modernization of escort-fighter policy saved the strategic bombing force from failure and, indeed, formed the foundation upon which the strategic bombing campaign ultimately reached maturity and achieved success. In this exciting and complete accounting of the transition from idea to near failure to ultimate success, distinguished military historian Eric Hammel sets out all the dots, then connects them in a conversational style approachable by all readers. What the Experts Are Saying About THE ROAD TO BIG WEEK . . . Eric Hammel has done it again, with a lucid portrayal of the growth of American bomber theory from the 1918 Armistice to the crucial days over Germany when the Eighth Air Force broke the Luftwaffe's back. Some books have told what happened during Big Week-Hammel tells you why, driving home points that are as vital today as they were in 1944. --Col. Walter J. Boyne, National Aviation Hall of Fame Honoree In The Road to Big Week, Eric Hammel cleverly connects a widely disparate collection of dots that are the development of America as the world's preeminent air power. These connections describe how the U.S. Army Air Forces-just barely in time-evolved in size and capability such that America's airmen prevailed in the iconic air battle that ultimately ensured the defeat of Nazi Germany. Hammel's meticulous research and eminently readable style make this definitive work a compelling read. --Lt.Col. Jay A. Stout, author of Fortress Ploesti Eric Hammel has a special gift for combining musty war records and intimate personal accounts into a gripping history . . . If you think there's nothing new to learn about World War II, if you think there was never a possibility the Allies might lose, if you think one side was smarter than the other, The Road to Big Week will unnerve you and change forever your perception of what happened in those high, embattled skies. --Robert F. Dorr, co-author of Hell Hawks!

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The emergence of the People's Republic of China on the world scene constitutes the most significant event in world politics since the end of World War II. Given its size, location, dynamism, and unconventional approach to many global issues, a rapidly growing China will likely reshape the global distribution of power and major issues confronting the international community. As the world's predominant political, economic, and military power, the United States faces a particularly significant challenge in responding to China's rising power and influence, especially in Asia. This challenge will require more effective U.S. policies and a reassessment of fundamental U.S. strategic assumptions and relationships. Offering a fresh perspective on current and near-term U.S. policy toward China, Michael Swaine examines the basic beliefs behind U.S.-China relations, recent U.S. and Chinese policy practices in seven key areas, and future trends most likely to affect U.S. policy. American leaders, he concludes, must develop policies to sustain America's economic and technological prowess and improve the U.S. strategic position. Otherwise, Washington will have a hard time maintaining a stabilizing presence in East Asia, shaping regional and Chinese strategic perceptions, and managing key policy issues.

Fighting Irishman the Story of Wild Bill Donovan Ishi Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the biography of William J. Donovan who was the wartime head of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II. He is known as the "Father of American Intelligence" and the "Father of Central Intelligence". A decorated veteran of World War I, General Donovan is the only person to have received the four highest awards in the United States: The Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Service Medal, and the National Security Medal. He was also a recipient of the Silver Star and Purple Heart, as well as an honorary British knighthood and decorations from several nations for his service during both World Wars. He earned the nickname "Wild Bill" while staring on the football team for Columbia University and the name stuck with him for the rest of his life. He was a rival of J. Edgar Hoover and the two men did not like each other. Hoover wanted to expand the reach of the FBI so as to take over Donovan's bailiwick which was foreign intelligence. Hoover won a temporary victory when the OSS was disbanded following World War II, but the CIA was founded two years later.

From its founding in the aftermath of World War II, the Central Intelligence Agency has been discovered in the midst of some of the most crucial-and most embarrassing--episodes in United States relations with the world. Richard Nixon's 1969 presidential order that declared CIA covert operations necessary to the attainment of American foreign policy goals was an acknowledgment that secret warfare tools had a much wider application than just the cold war conflict with the Soviet Union. The question of what, exactly, these operations have contributed to U.S. policy has long been neglected in the rush to accuse the CIA of being a "rogue elephant" or merely listing its nefarious deeds. Safe for Democracy for the first time places the story of the CIA's covert operations squarely in the context of America's global quest for democratic values and institutions. National security historian John Prados offers a comprehensive history of the CIA's secret wars that is as close to a definitive account as is possible today. He draws on three decades of research to illuminate the men and women of the intelligence establishment, their resources and techniques, their triumphs and failures. In a dramatic and revealing narrative, Safe for Democracy not only relates the inside stories of covert operations but examines in meticulous detail the efforts of presidents and Congress to control the CIA and the specific choices made in the agency's secret wars. Along the way Mr. Prados offers eye-opening accounts of the covert actions themselves, from radically revised interpretations of classic operations like Iran, Guatemala, Chile, and the Bay of Pigs; to lesser-known projects like Tibet and Angola; to virtually unknown tales of the CIA in Guyana and Ghana. He supplies full accounts of Reagan-era operations in Nicaragua and Afghanistan, and brings the story up to date with accounts of more recent activities in Somalia, Bosnia, and Iraq, all the while keeping American foreign policy goals in view.

Armed Forces of Poland in the West 1939-46 Helion & Company

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This monograph focuses on the strategic concepts, planning and the limited success of the Polish military, leading up to the British Guarantee of March, 1939 and then throughout the Second World War. Recreated in France, the Polish Military conceptualized a liberation policy of encouraging both France and the United Kingdom to undertake a Balkan Strategy to Poland's freedom. Polish relations, with Hungary in particular, and Romania, while British relations with Greece and Turkey, made this a promising policy option. In early 1941, Britain did send troops to aid Greece and the Poles were also about to send their Middle East-based force to Greece. This Balkan" strategy" was strongly shared and espoused by Churchill and on the British planning table till late Summer 1944 when the Americans prevailed in landing forces in the south of France, rather than pushing north in Italy and possibly putting forces across the Adriatic into friendly Croatia and Slovenia. This American policy was undoubtedly due to the pressures of finalizing the European war as soon as possible to get on with the war against Japan, and possibly also influenced by the American foreign policy of accommodating Stalin, who did not want Western Allies in his bailiwick. Attempts to reconcile with the Soviets failed to materialize any benefits to the Polish cause, but Polish forces extracted from the Soviets by agreements between Churchill and Stalin, were prized by the British and strengthened British capability in the Middle East. When in early 1945 Churchill asked his staffs for a possible military operation to push the Soviets back out of Poland - Operation Unthinkable, the Polish military in the West and potential clandestine forces in Poland became a major asset. This plan was not supported by the Americans or the important segment of the British coalition Government - the Labour Party, and further events in 1945 lead to the decline in influence once enjoyed by the Polish military in the West.
