    Central Asia: A New Great Game?

    Central Asia: A New Great Game? LTC Dianne L Smith Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "A new "Great Game" is being played out in Central Asia, one in which powers on the periphery compete for influence, but also one in which the Central Asian states themselves are active players. Their own struggle for power can influence immediate neighbors Russia, China, and Iran, and even beyond into the Indian subcontinent."

  •  The Invitation to Struggle: Executive and Legislative Competition over the U.S. Military Presence on the Korean Peninsula

    The Invitation to Struggle: Executive and Legislative Competition over the U.S. Military Presence on the Korean Peninsula

    The Invitation to Struggle: Executive and Legislative Competition over the U.S. Military Presence on the Korean Peninsula Dr William E Berry Jr Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "The primary focus of this monograph is the ongoing debate between the executive and legislative branches of government in the United States concerning the American military presence in the Republic of Korea. It begins by examining the debate surrounding the ratification of the Mutual Defense Treaty in 1953, and the Senate's decision to attach an "understanding" to that treaty. The Nixon and Carter administrations are particularly important because major efforts occurred in each to reduce the U.S. presence. In the case of the Nixon administration, the Congress was a major impetus to this reduction, whereas in the Carter administration, the Congress worked hard to impede Carter's troop withdrawal initiative. The reasons for this role reversal are very informative."

  •  Shaping China's Future in World Affairs: The U.S. Role

    Shaping China's Future in World Affairs: The U.S. Role

    Shaping China's Future in World Affairs: The U.S. Role Mr Robert G. Sutter Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Backed by impressive economic growth and steadily increasing military power, China's international influence has grown substantially in recent years. Beijing's growing assertiveness in a variety of areas from trade policy to the Taiwan Strait has challenged important interests of the United States and others with a concern for international stability. Chinese power poses a set of questions markedly different than a few years ago when China's leaders appeared as an isolated and troubled regime following the suppression of pro-democracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square in 1989."

  •  China's Strategic View: The Role of the People's Liberation Army

    China's Strategic View: The Role of the People's Liberation Army

    China's Strategic View: The Role of the People's Liberation Army Dr June Teufel-Dreyer Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Although the militant rhetoric of past decades has abated, the leadership of the People's Republic of China (PRC) is profoundly dissatisfied with the international status quo. The dissolution of the Soviet Union weakened China's ability to wrest concessions from the United States by threatening to move closer to the USSR, and from the USSR by threatening to support the United States. While some leverage can, and is, gained by negotiating with the major successor state to the Soviet Union, this leverage is more limited than in the past..."

    Prague, NATO, and European Security

    Prague, NATO, and European Security Dr Stephen J Blank Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "The issue of NATO enlargement is a crucial element of the European security agenda. Most of the analyses that have been done on NATO enlargement focus on the relative merits of enlargement for the Alliance. Others concentrate on the viewpoint of individual NATO members' interests. Few examine the perspectives of the possible applicants to NATO. Yet 1996 is the year in which the dialogue on Europe begins to shift from examining the "how and why" of enlargement to the "who and when" of this issue."
