  • Nuclear weapons and coercive diplomacy / Todd S. Sechser, University of Virginia, Matthew Fuhrmann, Texas A & M University
    U 264 S424 2017
    Are nuclear weapons useful for coercive diplomacy? Since 1945, most strategic thinking about nuclear weapons has focused on deterrence - using nuclear threats to prevent attacks against the nation's territory and interests. But an often overlooked question is whether nuclear threats can also coerce adversaries to relinquish possessions or change their behavior. Can nuclear weapons be used to blackmail other countries? The prevailing wisdom is that nuclear weapons are useful for coercion, but this book shows that this view is badly misguided. Nuclear weapons are useful mainly for deterrence and self-defense, not for coercion. The authors evaluate the role of nuclear weapons in several foreign policy contexts and present a trove of new quantitative and historical evidence that nuclear weapons do not help countries achieve better results in coercive diplomacy. The evidence is clear: the benefits of possessing nuclear weapons are almost exclusively defensive, not offensive.

  • African security in the twenty-first century : challenges and opportunities / Stephen Emerson and Hussein Solomon
    UA 855 E44 2018
    This book explores and analyzes the evolving African security paradigm in light of the multitude of diverse threats and challenges facing the continent and the international community. It challenges current thinking and traditional security constructs as woefully inadequate to meet the realsecurity needs of African governments and their 1 billion plus citizens in an increasingly globalized and interdependent world. Through the lens of human security the authors' examine the continent's most pressing security challenges - from identity conflict and failing states to terrorism, disease,and environmental degradation - and in doing so provide a comprehensive look at the complexities of building peace and stability in modern-day Africa. Not only does the book critically assess the state of progress in addressing security challenges, but it presents new strategies and tools for moreeffectively engaging Africans and the global community in their common search for solutions.

  • The puzzle palace : a report on America's most secret agency / James Bamford
    UB 251 U5B35 1983
    In this remarkable tour de force of investigative reporting, James Bamford exposes the inner workings of America's largest, most secretive, and arguably most intrusive intelligence agency. The NSA has long eluded public scrutiny, but The Puzzle Palace penetrates its vast network of power and unmasks the people who control it, often with shocking disregard for the law. With detailed information on the NSA's secret role in the Korean Airlines disaster, Iran-Contra, the first Gulf War, and other major world events of the 80s and 90s, this is a brilliant account of the use and abuse of technological espionage.
