Synopsis: The Wreckage Reconsidered examines Yugoslav disintegration in order to suggest, through the Yugoslav example, that a reexamination of national security strategy and foreign policy concerns for the United States in a new century is not only a wise choice but an imperative one. P. H. Liotta examines this subject by means of the oxymoron, which he defines through its specific Balkan application: a force or issue so contrary in nature that it may remain problematic no matter what approach or resolution might be offered. The five oxymorons Liotta considers are: U.S. strategic perspectives as they have applied to the Balkan example; the rise of the "parastate" as a result of recent Balkan history; a strategy of chaos, as it may have applied in the last Balkan war and as it may "target" American strategic culture in the future; religion, a cultural and political force in the Balkans as it may have provided the occasion, though not the cause, for the outbreak of conflict; and, finally, the recognition that NATO enlargement may bring both unintended and unwelcome consequences.

About the Author: P. H. Liotta is Professor of National Security Affairs at the U.S. Naval War College.

Book Description Lexington Books c. 1999, Lanham MD, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good-. Top & bottom of the spine are very lightly bumped, otherwise the book is almost as new. No DJ. (S-5-A) . ; 9-1/8" Tall, xxi + 251pp. Smooth red boards, bright gold spine lettering, bright gold lettering in black, gold decorated panel on the front cover. HISTORY. Frontispiece map. "Oxymoron, as I will use it continuously throughout this work, has a specific meaning as it applies to the current and future security environment. These five Balkan oxymorons, specifically, are forces or issues so contrary in nature they may remain problematic no matter what approach or resolution might be offered. The oxymorons, in order, are: US strategic perspectives as they have applied to the Balkan example; the rise of the 'parastate' as a result of recent Balkan history; a strategy of chaos, as it may have applied in the last Balkan war and as it may 'target' American strategic culture in the future; religion, as a cultural and political force in the Balkans and as it may have provided the occasion, though not the cause, for the outbreak of conflict; and , finally, the recognition that NATO enlargement may bring both unintended and unwelcome consequences. . Balkan 'deconstruction, ' as I term it, is by no means an original concept: a significant part of ancient Greek philosophy is based on the exact need to 'deconstruct' phenomena in order to arrive at sound solutions of practical value.In a similar way, now that we have entered the twenty-first century, we may need to de-construct American strategic vision in order to preserve it. " The Chapters: No man's land: U. S. Grand strategy and Yugoslav intervention; Balkan fragmentation and the rise of the parastate; A strategy of chaos; The war in Religion: Fault lines in the Balkan enigma; After the lost war: The end of NATO. Conclusion. Appendices (A: Nationalism. B: The Dayton General Framework Agreement; C: Internet Resources) . . Index. About the authors. (S-5-A) . Bookseller Inventory # 37611
