    Impacts of Anti-Access/Area Denial Measures on Space Systems: Issues and Implications for Army and Joint Forces

    Impacts of Anti-Access/Area Denial Measures on Space Systems: Issues and Implications for Army and Joint Forces Mr Jeffrey L Caton Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "In January 2012, former President Barack Obama and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta published new strategic guidance for 21st century defense. Third among the document’s 10 primary missions of U.S. Armed Forces is the call to “project power despite anti-access/area denial [A2/AD] challenges,” which included the charge to continue “efforts to enhance the resiliency and effectiveness of critical space-based capabilities.” Further, the fifth mission is to “operate effectively in cyberspace and space” potentially against “a range of threats that may degrade, disrupt, or destroy assets.” The 2018 National Defense Strategy and National Space Strategy both reaffirm the vital interests that the United States has in the domain of space."

    Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future-Second Edition

    Underestimated: Our Not So Peaceful Nuclear Future-Second Edition Mr Henry D Sokolski Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Mr. Henry Sokolski has written an excellent, short book about what he sees as our not so peaceful nuclear future. While short in length, it covers a lot of ground, and because it is extensively footnoted, it can lead readers to the broader literature. The book provides a good picture of the growing stockpiles of separated plutonium and the stockpiles of highly-enriched uranium, as well as the likely expansion of nuclear power programs in additional countries..."

    Key Strategic Issues List 2018-2020

    Key Strategic Issues List 2018-2020 Document by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "As our National Security Strategy and National Defense Strategy acknowledge, Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and radical violent extremist organizations pose extant and potential challenges to U.S. national security. Those challenges exist within an extraordinarily complex global security environment characterized by dynamic changes in technology and its application, profound demographic shifts, economic redistribution and distortion, and geostrategic power realignments of historic proportions. These ever-intensifying conditions produce increasing uncertainty concerning the prospects for world peace, stability, and prosperity. Some strategists opine that the potential for great power interstate conflict is higher now than at any time since the end of the Cold War."

Bunker, Dr Robert J Bunker Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press, with help from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) "This book discusses and analyzes the more well-known radical Islamist English-language online publications—al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine, the pro-Taliban Azan magazine, and the Islamic State’s (IS) Dabiq magazine—as well as a number of lesser-known publications associated with al Shabaab (Gaidi Mtaani and Amka) and al-Nusrah Front (Al-Risalah). Additionally, early Islamist works such as Benefit of the Day, Jihadi Recollections, and Defenders of the Truth are highlighted. Further, Inspire guides and special theme publications and IS reports, news, and little-discussed eBooks—the Black Flags, Shudada (Martyrs), Islamic State, and The West series—are addressed. It next offers a comparative analysis of basic narratives found in 30 combined issues of Inspire and Dabiq magazines. Al-Qaeda and IS online magazine clusters are then provided along with a discussion of the differing strategic approaches of these transnational terrorist organizations. Finally, policy response options are offered as a counter to the emergence of these publications, a detailed radical Islamist online magazine chronology has been constructed, and a glossary of Arab terms found in the two dominant magazines is provided."

    Stability in Multi-Domain Battle

    Stability in Multi-Domain Battle COL Stephen C. Marr PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "Stability is a fundamental component of Multi-Domain Battle (MDB). Integrating stability activities with MDB provides the entire Joint Force with increased decision space and expands freedom of operation. Stability actions during competition build partner capability, capacity, and resilience; identify and counter adversary destabilization efforts; and support deterrence. Stability actions during armed conflict increase the options for the application of all instruments of national power and protect the legitimacy of the United States Government (USG) integrated campaign. Finally, stability actions following armed combat prevent an adversary from reversing friendly gains, reestablish civilian control, and enable a sustainable future. Stability is the common thread that weaves Multi-Domain Battle, the Joint Concept for Integrated Campaigning (JCIC), and our national strategic documents together."

    Stabilization: A New Approach to Whole of Government Operational Planning and Execution

    Stabilization: A New Approach to Whole of Government Operational Planning and Execution Professor William J Flavin PKSOI Paper by the US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "The United States has a compelling national security interest to promote stability in select fragile and conflict-affected states. Such an operational environment is complex and requires a whole-of-U.S. Government response, coupled with non-governmental and international partners and supported by the affected nation to achieve their own national goals. Since 1947, the national security system has struggled to handle effectively the range and complexity of the existing global threats and opportunities."

    Friendly Force Dilemmas in Europe: Challenges Within and Among Intergovernmental Organizations and the Implications for the U.S. Army Jose Luis Calvo Albero, Jose De Meer Madrid, Kirk Gallinger, Klaus Klingenschmid, Angus McAfee, Stefano Messina, Markus Meyer, Michael Mineni, Darryl Rupp Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Over the last several years, European security has confronted major new challenges. Russia’s land grab in Ukraine and Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)-inspired transnational terrorism are two of the most obvious, but climate change, destabilizing migration, insufficient energy resources, a weakened European identity, and manipulation of the information space greatly complicate an already threatening security environment.
