Outlines how U.S. policymakers can deter Russian aggression with robust support for NATO, while reassuring Russia of NATO's defensive intentions through clear words and actions based in international law. Marten lays out several scenarios that could lead to a dangerous confrontation, ranging from an inadvertent encounter between NATO and Russian military aircraft or ships to an intentional Russian land grab in Europe. The report offers a plan for how the Donald J. Trump administration could work with Congress and NATO allies to lessen the chances of crisis escalation.

Strategy before Clausewitz : linking warfare and statecraft, 1400-1830
Heuser, Beatrice, 1961- author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, an imprint of the Taylor & Francis Group, 2018
Was strategy practised before the word was used? -- Christine de Pizan, the first modern strategist: good governance and conflict mediation -- Denial of change: the military revolution as seen by contemporaries -- The invention of modern maritime strategies: the Anglo-Spanish War of 1585-1604 -- A national security strategy for England: Matthew Sutcliffe, the Earl of Essex and the Cádiz Expedition of 1596 -- Command of the sea: the origins of a strategic concept -- Lazarus Schwendi, Raimondo Montecuccoli and the Turkish wars: peaceful coexistence or rollback? -- Giubert: prophet of total war? -- What Clausewitz read: on the origins of some of his key ideas.

"This collection of essays combines historical research with cutting-edge analysis and makes a significant contribution to the study of the history of strategic thinking. Among leading writers of strategy, there is a debate as to whether strategy in its modern definition existed before Clausewitz or even the early 20th century. The case studies featured in this book show that strategic thinking did indeed exist before the last century, even if there was no commonly agreed word for it. The volume uses a variety of approaches. Firstly, it explores case studies which assess the strategic thinking of three monarchs whose biographers have claimed to have identified strategic thinking in their warfare: Edward III of England, Philip II of Spain, and Louis XIV of France. The book then analyses a number of famous strategic thinkers and practitioners, including Christine de Pizan, Lazarus Schwendi, Matthew Sutcliffe, Raimondo Montecuccoli, and Count Guibert. This work combines in-depth historical documentary research with strategic studies analysis. The chapters illustrate that it is language and at times conceptualisation, more than social, economic and political (let alone mental or educational), limitations that differentiate us from our forbearers. This book will be of great interest to students of strategic history and theory, military history and IR in general."--Providee by publisher.

National security intelligence : secret operations in defense of the democracies
Johnson, Loch K., 1942- author
Cambridge, UK ; Polity, 2017
National security intelligence: the first line of defense -- Intelligence collection and analysis: knowing about the world -- Covert action: secret attempts to shape history -- Counterintelligence: the hunt for moles -- Safeguards against the abuse of secret power -- National security intelligence: shield and hidden sword of the democracies.

"National security intelligence is a vast, complex, and important topic, made doubly hard for citizens to understand because of the thick veils of secrecy that surround it. In the second edition of his definitive introduction to the field, leading intelligence expert Loch K. Johnson guides readers skilfully through this shadowy side of government. Drawing on over forty years of experience studying intelligence agencies and their activities, he explains the three primary missions of intelligence: information collection and analysis, counterintelligence, and covert action, before moving on to explore the wider dilemmas posed by the existence of secret government organizations in open, democratic societies. Recent developments including the controversial leaks by the American intelligence official Edward J. Snowden, the U.S. Senate's Torture Report, and the ongoing debate over the use of drones are explored alongside difficult questions such as why intelligence agencies inevitably make mistakes in assessing world events; why some intelligence officers choose to engage in treason against their own country on behalf of foreign regimes; and how spy agencies can succumb to scandals -including highly intrusive surveillance against the very citizens they are meant to protect. Comprehensively revised and updated throughout, National Security Intelligence is tailor-made to meet the interests of students and general readers who care about how nations shield themselves against threats through the establishment of intelligence organizations, and how they strive for safeguards to prevent the misuse of this secret power"--

Israeli national security : a new strategy for an era of change
Freilich, Chuck, author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2018]
Israel's classic defense doctrine -- A strategic environment transformed -- Israel's new strategic setting -- The changing military threat -- Non-military threats -- Israeli society and national security -- Israel's strategic response -- The classic military response in perspective -- The military response today -- Nuclear and regional arms control policy -- The foreign policy response -- The "special relationship" -- A national security strategy for an era of change -- Primary conclusions -- Policy recommendations.

In Israeli National Security, Chuck Freilich presents an authoritative analysis of the military, diplomatic, demographic, and societal challenges Israel faces today, to propose a comprehensive and long-term Israeli national security strategy. The heart of the new strategy places greater emphasis on restraint, defense, and diplomacy as means of addressing the challenges Israel faces, along with the military capacity to deter and, if necessary, defeat Israel's adversaries, while also maintaining the resolve of its society. By bringing Israel's most critical debates about the Palestinians, demography, Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, US relations and nuclear strategy into sharp focus, the strategy Freilich proposes addresses the primary challenges Israel must address in order to chart its national course.

Women soldiers and citizenship in Israel : gendered encounters with the State
Lomsky-Feder, Edna, author
Abingdon, Oxon ; Routledge, 2018
1. Theorizing women's encounters with the State -- 2. Setting the stage -- 3. Serving the army as secretaries: intersectionality and multi-level contract -- 4. Contrasting gendered experiences: redoing and undoing gender -- 5. Contrasting gendered experiences: crossing boundaries -- 6. Dis/acknowledging sexual harassment -- 7. Dis/acknowledging military violence: women breaking the silence -- 8. Gendered citizenship and military service: a comparative perspective.

"Women Soldiers and Citizenship in Israel: Gendered Encounters with the State is an important and rigorous study exploring the varied and shifting meanings that Israeli women ascribe to their military service. By analysing life stories and testimonies of over 120 women the text examines: How do women's gendered ethno-class positions shape their experiences of military service? How does the gendering of military roles shape women's gender awareness and their perceptions of citizenship? And how do women's specific positions in the military shape their awareness of, and reaction to, the state's inherent violence? This study should appeal to scholars and students of sociology, political science, gender studies, military sociology, political anthropology, social policy, Israel studies, and Middle East studies"--
