    Investigating the Benefits and Drawbacks of Realigning the National Guard Under the Department of Homeland Security

    Investigating the Benefits and Drawbacks of Realigning the National Guard Under the Department of Homeland Security Dr Ryan Burke, Dr Sue McNeil Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) designates homeland defense (HD) as one of the three core pillars of the nation’s current and future defense strategy. Defending the homeland from external threats and aggression requires a robust military capability. In this sense, both the federal Armed Forces (active and reserve components), as well as state National Guard forces play important roles in the defense of the nation. Further, HD often overlaps with civil support (CS) and homeland security to form a triad of domestic military operational domains. Where the roles, responsibilities, and limitations of the active and reserve components of the Armed Forces are relatively clear in this triad, the National Guard is a unique military entity capable of serving in either a state-controlled or federally controlled status during domestic operations."

    Cyberspace: Malevolent Actors, Criminal Opportunities, and Strategic Competition Dr Dighton Fiddner, Dr Phil Williams Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "The following chapters raise major and enduring questions about the conceptual and analytic challenges posed by the unique nature of cyberspace; differences between cyberthreats and more traditional challenges to national security; the range of possible responses to cyberthreats, ranging from the development of codes of conduct in cyberspace to strategies of deterrence and denial, and even the development of offensive cyberwar capabilities; and the relevance of traditional concepts such as crisis management and escalation to potential confrontations in cyberspace."

    The Pivot to Asia: Can it Serve as the Foundation for American Grand Strategy in the 21st Century

    The Pivot to Asia: Can it Serve as the Foundation for American Grand Strategy in the 21st Century Dr Douglas Stuart Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Establishing priorities is the indispensable core of strategy formulation. The Obama Administration’s decision to accord top priority to the Indo-Asia-Pacific (IAP) region made good strategic sense both in terms of the opportunities presented by the region’s unprecedented economic growth and the risks associated with the rapidly changing security environment in the IAP."

    Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Chinese Thinking about Long-Distance and Expeditionary Operations

    Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Chinese Thinking about Long-Distance and Expeditionary Operations Dr Larry M Wortzel Letort Paper by US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "This Letort Paper analyzes Long-Distance Operations, a Chinese-language book published by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Academy of Military Sciences (AMS) in 2007, as well as several other contemporaneous PLA publications. An assessment of this body of literature shows that Long-Distance Operations provides an internal critique by a PLA strategist of PLA operational and equipment deficiencies."

    2016-17 Key Strategic Issues List Professor John F. Troxell Document by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute, US Army War College Press "Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and radical violent extremist organizations that currently challenge the U.S will likely continue to do so for some time. These security challenges exist within a wider global context of rapid technological change, significant demographic shifts, an uncertain economy, and geostrategic power dynamics of historic proportions. These conditions intensify the level of uncertainty and the pace of change, and raise the potential for significant interstate conflict to higher levels than at any time since the end of the Cold War."
