Item Description: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Early in every new administration, the President and his national security team are inundated with studies offering advice on how to organize for national security. Many propose sweeping changes in the size, structure, and mission of the National Security Council (NSC) staff, the fulcrum of national security decisionmaking. However attractive superficially, organizational tinkering is unlikely to drive better performance. This paper argues that structure and process are less important than leadership and the quality of NSC staffing. No duty rises higher than the President’s call to defend the Constitution and the people and territory it nourishes. That duty will be tested early and often. An NSC staff that is up to the task will play an enormous role in keeping the United States safe.What Does the NSC Staff Do? The NSC staff has four primary roles: to advise the President in the field of national security affairs, to manage and coordinate the interagency process in formulating national security policy, to broadly monitor policy execution, and to staff the President for national security meetings, trips, and events. Many assume that the NSC staff does, or should do, much more. But it is first and foremost the President’s personal national security staff. Other tasks - such as generating independent, whole of government national security policies and strategies, or conducting detailed, daily implementation oversight - would require a much larger staff and inevitably lead to ponderous, centralized, and ultimately dysfunctional behaviors that would prevent responsive support to the President. Long-range "strategic" planning is surely essential, but more properly belongs to the interagency as a whole, vetted by the Deputies and Principals Committees and approved by the full National Security Council. The NSC’s role as a process manager is not synonymous with policy advocacy. While the National Security Advisor (NSA) may and often will recommend a given course of action, a more critical function is ensuring that all viewpoints are heard and objectively assessed, and that important issues are framed for decision. When allowed to become an operational entity (as occurred during the Iran-Contra affair) or to effectively preempt the Departments of State and Defense (as in the Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Jimmy Carter eras), the NSC staff has historically stumbled. Properly focused and chartered, the NSC staff can empower and facilitate an interagency process that is otherwise cumbersome. Over time, the NSC staff has become immersed in policy detail and in responding to urgent or crisis events, fed largely by a 24-hour news cycle. This in turn creates pressure for staff growth. The result is a diminished ability to conduct high-level, far-seeing policy work at the appropriate strategic level. A smaller NSC staff by definition is unable to immerse itself in detailed policy oversight and micromanagement, a compelling argument for reductions in future administrations. In this regard, the NSC staff is not a line entity, statutorily empowered to give orders in its own name. And significantly, it should not be an interagency planning headquarters. It may forward Presidential guidance and direction through formal channels or an approved interagency body such as the Principals Committee. It cannot direct or demand. However, the NSC staff and its head, the National Security Advisor, enjoy two distinct advantages: access to the President, and the ability to set the policy agenda in national security affairs. Used judiciously, these represent real power. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781542917841

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 254 x 178 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Sing Goddess, of the wrath of Achilles, Peleus son. So begins the Iliad, the greatest war epic in western culture. Since the dawn of recorded history, the history of man has been nearly synonymous with the history of war, a history that begins with Homer and continues today. Then as now, war remains the ultimate arbiter of human affairs, an awful and ever-present reminder of humanity s failure to escape its wrathful roots. Seemingly inescapable, war is supremely important because it is the great destroyer of states and populations and whole cultures. And so the question itself is crucial to the survival of the state. What matters most in battle? There are many answers. Population, industrial capacity, economic power and the civil and military institutions of the state all play their roles. But in the end, leadership may loom largest. War is perhaps the most complicated and demanding of all human endeavors. Any junior leader who has attempted to move a small unit over rough terrain at night, avoiding enemy outposts, deploy into a combat formation and assault a position knows intuitively that fog and friction are masters of the battlefield. Multiply those problems a thousandfold and the challenges of battle command at higher levels begin to take shape. Throw in the emotional and psychic elements inherent in command during war and its daunting demands now appear in high relief. Battle command, particularly of higher formations, is extraordinarily complex, like brain surgery under fire. In all of history, only a relative few have mastered it. Others have been skilled practitioners, though they may have lacked the spark of genius-what Napoleon called coup d oeil -that marks the great captains. Only the chosen few will succeed. But they will make history. This anthology was inspired by its authors and the Soldiers and Marines they lead. They have succeeded brilliantly in translating the reality of combat to a rising generation of combat leaders. Many were moved to delve deeply into military history as the wellspring of their profession, even as they fought America s wars and half-wars and rose to command themselves. Their experiences and reflections appear in this volume, a collection of battle studies that focus on leadership success, and failure, in the great campaigns of the last 150 years. From brigade- to army-group level, these lessons in battle command speak across the decades to the key questions of success in war. The authors are soldier-scholars of the first rank, some of whom are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan today and will rise to lead our military in tomorrow s battles and campaigns.

Item Description: Robert D. Reed Publishers, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 238 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This varied collection of short stories is filled with strange, amusing, memorable, and imperfect characters telling unlikely tales, such as: .Brown Acid: the psychedelic artist from Woodstock to 21st century.Soot: Asteroid impact and bumbling survivors .Unravel: Biotech mutations.Afterglow: Flawed long-life formula.Scum: Witches, aliens, junk food, and quasi-reality TV .Caterwaul: Cats a-wailing.Deep Fried: Fatty foods outlawed.Sex, Drugs Rock and Roll: Hookers, Users, and Rockers.Overlook: Kids stage backyard Waco.Lanamite: Exotic dancers and asteroid mining.Death s Little Helper: Young man believes he is the Reaper s aide .Bathory s Dudgeon: Aspiring vampire killer. Follow the 60s artist who calls himself Aardvark through the personal and social changes of the past 40 years in the tale entitled Brown Acid. See how two very non-heroic humans manage to survive an astronomical catastrophe in Soot. Hope that a junk food called Scum does not actually reach the supermarket shelves! From the first page to the last, readers will find these stories entertaining and hilarious. All of the characters portrayed in the fiction of Richard Bellush are deeply flawed in very human ways, but they often manage to be likable anyway. Sometimes they are likable because of their flaws. We, as readers, hope they succeed in their endeavors and occasionally they do.The short stories in this collection range from an all-too-real depiction of contemporary life to pure unashamed space opera. Throughout it all, the writing remains acerbic, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781931741194

Item Description: Robert D. Reed Publishers, United States, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 238 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This varied collection of short stories is filled with strange, amusing, memorable, and imperfect characters telling unlikely tales, such as: .Brown Acid: the psychedelic artist from Woodstock to 21st century.Soot: Asteroid impact and bumbling survivors .Unravel: Biotech mutations.Afterglow: Flawed long-life formula.Scum: Witches, aliens, junk food, and quasi-reality TV .Caterwaul: Cats a-wailing.Deep Fried: Fatty foods outlawed.Sex, Drugs Rock and Roll: Hookers, Users, and Rockers.Overlook: Kids stage backyard Waco.Lanamite: Exotic dancers and asteroid mining.Death s Little Helper: Young man believes he is the Reaper s aide .Bathory s Dudgeon: Aspiring vampire killer. Follow the 60s artist who calls himself Aardvark through the personal and social changes of the past 40 years in the tale entitled Brown Acid. See how two very non-heroic humans manage to survive an astronomical catastrophe in Soot. Hope that a junk food called Scum does not actually reach the supermarket shelves! From the first page to the last, readers will find these stories entertaining and hilarious. All of the characters portrayed in the fiction of Richard Bellush are deeply flawed in very human ways, but they often manage to be likable anyway. Sometimes they are likable because of their flaws. We, as readers, hope they succeed in their endeavors and occasionally they do.The short stories in this collection range from an all-too-real depiction of contemporary life to pure unashamed space opera. Throughout it all, the writing remains acerbic, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781931741194

Item Description: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 216 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 7.0in. x 0.5in.Sing Goddess, of the wrath of Achilles, Peleus son. So begins the Iliad, the greatest war epic in western culture. Since the dawn of recorded history, the history of man has been nearly synonymous with the history of war, a history that begins with Homer and continues today. Then as now, war remains the ultimate arbiter of human affairs, an awful and ever-present reminder of humanitys failure to escape its wrathful roots. Seemingly inescapable, war is supremely important because it is the great destroyer of states and populations and whole cultures. And so the question itself is crucial to the survival of the state. What matters most in battle There are many answers. Population, industrial capacity, economic power and the civil and military institutions of the state all play their roles. But in the end, leadership may loom largest. War is perhaps the most complicated and demanding of all human endeavors. Any junior leader who has attempted to move a small unit over rough terrain at night, avoiding enemy outposts, deploy into a combat formation and assault a position knows intuitively that fog and friction are masters of the battlefield. Multiply those problems a thousandfold and the challenges of battle command at higher levels begin to take shape. Throw in the emotional and psychic elements inherent in command during war and its daunting demands now appear in high relief. Battle command, particularly of higher formations, is extraordinarily complex, like brain surgery under fire. In all of history, only a relative few have mastered it. Others have been skilled practitioners, though they may have lacked the spark of genius-what Napoleon called coup doeil-that marks the great captains. Only the chosen few will succeed. But they will make history. This anthology was inspired by its authors and the Soldiers and Marines they lead. They have succeeded brilliantly in translating the reality of combat to a rising generation of combat leaders. Many were moved to delve deeply into military history as the wellspring of their profession, even as they fought Americas wars and half-wars and rose to command themselves. Their experiences and reflections appear in this volume, a collection of battle studies that focus on leadership success, and failure, in the great campaigns of the last 150 years. From brigade- to army-group level, these lessons in battle command speak across the decades to the key questions of success in war. The authors are soldier-scholars of the first rank, some of whom are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan today and will rise to lead our military in tomorrows battles and campaigns.

This volume represents an early attempt at assessing the Long War, now in its 14th year. Forged in the fires of the 9/11 attacks, the war includes campaigns against al Qaeda, major conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and operations in the Horn of Africa, the Republic of the Philippines, and globally, in the air and on the sea. The authors herein treat only the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, the largest U.S. efforts. It is intended for future senior officers, their advisors, and other national security decisionmakers. By derivation, it is also a book for students in joint professional military education courses, which will qualify them to work in the field of strategy. While the book tends to focus on strategic decisions and developments of land wars among the people, it acknowledges that the status of the United States as a great power and the strength of its ground forces depend in large measure on the dominance of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force in their respective domains.

Item Description: Baker Publishing Group. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Right Doctrine from the Wrong Texts?: Essays on the Use of the Old Testament in the New, G. K. Beale, If Paul and other New Testament authors were publishing today, would scholars accept their exegetical methods? This collection of essays presents various perspectives concerning the hermeneutical issue of whether Jesus and the apostles quoted Old Testament texts with respect for their broader Old Testament context. Each of the contributors debates the interpretive understandings by which Old Testament texts are quoted and applied in the New Testament. Were New Testament teachers and authors simply children of rabbinic midrashic scholarship? Did they revere the original context of passages they quoted or fill them with different meaning? What presuppositions about the Old Testament guided their approaches? As the contributors to this volume wrestle with Old Testament quotation in the New Testament, they offer views from across the theological spectrum to help biblical studies students work through the issues. Contributors include: David L. Baker G. K. Beale C. H. Dodd Francis Foulkes R. T. France Scott J. Hafemann Morna D. Hooker G. P. Hugenberger Walter C. Kaiser Jr. Barnabas Lindars Richard N.
