John Morrissey Long War. Centcom, Grand Strategy, and Global Security

Nowhere has the U.S. military established more bases, lost more troops, or spent more money in the last thirty years than in the Middle East and Central Asia. These regions fall under the purview of United States Central Command (CENTCOM); not coincidentally, they include the most energy-rich places on earth. From its inception, CENTCOM was tasked with the military and economic security of this key strategic area, the safeguarding of commercial opportunities therein, and ultimately the policing of a pivotal yet precarious space in the broader global economy. CENTCOM calls this mission its -Long War.- This book tells the story of that long war: a war underpinned by a range of entangled geopolitical and geoeconomic visions and involving the use of the most devastating Western interventionary violence of our time.Starting with a historical perspective, John Morrissey explores CENTCOM's Cold War origins and evolution, before addressing key elements of the command's grand strategy, including its interventionary rationales and use of the law in war. Engaging a wide range of scholarship on neoliberalism, imperialism, geopolitics, and Orientalism, the book then looks in-depth at the military interventions CENTCOM has spearheaded and critically assesses their consequences in terms of human geography. Recent books on CENTCOM have focused on command structures, intelligence issues, and interpersonal rivalries. In contrast, The Long War asks critical questions about CENTCOM's...

Lawrence Van Alstyne Diary of an Enlisted Man. the Recollections of a Union Soldier of .Bostwicks Tigers,. 128th New York Volunteers During the American Civil War

A valuable American Civil War diaryThis substantial diary of a Union soldier serving with a New York infantry regiment benefits from its author's talent for observation. Diary entries were made frequently and regularly, sometimes on more than one occasion during the course of a day, and this provides the reader with what amounts to reportage of a conflict which was fought not too long after the professional reporter became a regular feature of campaign and camp in the nineteenth century. Van Alstyne was a man committed to the preservation of the Union and his views on the subject of slavery, probably because his family had once been slave owners, are initially ambivalent. The 128th New York Volunteers (nicknamed 'Old Steady') took part in the siege of Port Hudson, the Red River Expedition, Sheridan's Shenandoah Valley campaign and many other notable engagements. Eventually Van Alstyne earned a commission and went on to command a regiment of freed slaves from Louisiana.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

C. V. F. Townshend A British Soldier of the 18th Century. the Military Career of George Townshend during the War of Austrian Succession . The Seven Year.s War

An essential insight into British battles of the 18th centuryAlthough George Townshend, First Marquess (and ultimately Viscount) Townshend, rose to become a field-marshal of the British Army, it is quite possible that few students interested in the warfare of the 18th century are familiar with his early military career. He first saw action at the Battle of Dettingen during the War of Austrian Succession in 1743 and he also fought at Culloden during the abortive Jacobite Rising in 1746. Townshend returned to the European battle front in in 1747 and saw action at Lauffeld. However, perhaps his principal claim to fame came about with the outbreak of the Seven Years War when he was given command of a brigade under Wolfe at Quebec. James Wolfe was killed in this famous battle and his second in command, Robert Monckton, was quickly wounded, so Townshend took command of the British Army on the Plains of Abraham in September, 1759. Townshend displayed impressive competence during the final stages of the battle averting a potentially dangerous attack. After the battle it was he who accepted the surrender of the city. After fighting at Vellinghausen in 1761 he commanded a division of Anglo-Portuguese troops during the Spanish Invasion of Portugal. All these events are described in fascinating detail and Townshend’s account of the war in North America offers particular insights into the conduct of the French and Indian War and the command qualities of James Wolfe.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Kunst - Bildende Künstler, Note: 1,3, Universität Duisburg-Essen (Institut für optionale Studien), Veranstaltung: Kunst und Gestaltung, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Vincent Willem van Gogh, im Folgenden van Gogh genannt, zählt heutzutage zu den bedeutendsten und beliebtesten Malern aller Zeiten. Er wird als Vorläufer der Expressionisten und Mitbegründer der modernen Malerei bezeichnet. Er fertigte über 1000 Zeichnungen und über 860 Gemälde an. Seine zahlreichen Bilder werden für mehrere Millionen versteigert - viele sind sogar unverkäuflich. Die meisten seiner Werke kann man im namhaften Van Gogh Museum in den Niederlanden bestaunen, einige finden sich auch im Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Doch zu Lebzeiten gab es keinen anderen Künstler, der so wenig anerkannt wurde, wie van Gogh.Setzt man sich mit van Gogh auseinander muss man sich notgedrungen einige Fragen stellen: Warum konnte van Gogh nur ein Gemälde zu Lebzeiten verkaufen? Weshalb wurde er nicht anerkannt? Lag dies an seinem schwierigen Charakter? An seiner angeblich zu schnellen Malweise? Warum wird van Gogh heute zu den größten Malern aller Zeiten gezählt? Was macht ihn aus? War van Gogh ein Genie? War er wahnsinnig? Oder war es einfach nur die Leidenschaft, die ihn antrieb?Zunächst möchte ich eine kunsthistorische Einordnung seiner Werke vornehmen und dann einen kurzen Überblick über sein Leben wiedergeben.

John French 1914. The Early Campaigns of the Great War by the British Commander

The commander of the BEF's view of the Great WarThis book, written by Sir John French, concerns his period of command during the first period of the Great War. Predictably, as in many commander's memoirs it displays much partiality as to his own actions and those of others. This is particularly noteworthy since the consensus view of the history of the time does not judge-with much justification-French kindly. At the outbreak of the war French was the obvious choice for command and his views accorded with the government establishment if not with more forward thinking military men under his command. Fast moving German offensives revealed French's military strategy with its faith in inflexible defensive strongpoints to be hopelessly out of date. Events overtook him and were it not for Smith-Dorrien's aggressive action during the First Battle of Mons-for which seemingly French never forgave him-the BEF could easily have been overwhelmed. French became increasing out of touch and indecisive and was replaced in 1915 by Haig. This book is far from a balanced history, but is an important account of how a nineteenth century soldier saw his twentieth century war. It also contains much factual information on the dispositions of troops and actions in what was a fluid stage of the conflict.

Douglas P. Winnifrith, Montague Thomas Hainsselin Fighting the Good Fight. Two Accounts of Chaplains During the First World War-The Church in the Fighting Line by Douglas P. Winnifrith . in the

The Cross and the SwordNo one who has served in the military has ever underestimated the value of the important work undertaken by chaplains-those men of the church who donned uniforms and joined the fighting men on campaign. They endured the perils of the battlefield and danger in all its forms to provide spiritual support and pastoral care to soldiers of all ranks. These men brought comfort to the dying and wounded, supported those in physical or psychological distress and helped with simple tasks, such as writing letters to loved ones at home, for the injured and illiterate. The two accounts here recognise the brave men of the church who went into the conflict of the Great War armed with no more than their faith, their Bibles and their humanity. One account concerns an army chaplain's experiences of the opening stages of the war where the B. E. F, with great loss of life, was rolled back in the retreat from Mons. Winnifrith became the man of the hour when his fellow officers in Smith-Dorrien's hard pressed command fell and, astonishingly, he had to take command of an infantry brigade. The second account in this good value 'two books in one' edition, concerns the activities of a churchman on the high seas of war with the ships and sailors of the Royal Navy.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines a...

George S. Prugh, United States Department of the Army Law at War. Vietnam 1964-1973

First published in 1975. From the preface: "The purpose of this monograph is to describe the presence of law at a particular time and in a particular American command in Vietnam. I have selected the U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, as the headquarters, and the crucial years of 1964 through 1966 as the primary but not exclusive period of time to study, partly because as the senior legal officer, the Staff Judge Advocate at Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, then, I was most familiar with events, but in the main because it was in that headquarters and at that time that basic policy positions were formed. It was early apparent that law could have a special role in Vietnam because of the unusual circumstances of the war, which was a combination of internal and external war, of insurgency and nation-building, and of development of indigenous legal institutions and rapid disintegration of the remnants of the colonial French legal establishment. Further, the Vietnamese people were eager for knowledge of American institutions, including law".

Charles King The Iron Brigade. A Novel of the American Civil War

An exciting Civil War novel by a former serving soldierFor those who enjoy the fiction of the American Civil War, this book by Charles King will not disappoint. It concerns the 'Iron Brigade,' the black hatted soldiers from the mid-west who through their 'iron' discipline and determination earned themselves an abiding reputation among the infantry regiments of the Army of the Potomac. What make this book especially interesting is that is comes from the pen of Charles King who was not only a prolific author, particularly on Civil War and western subjects, but also a general in the United States Army. His credentials as regards this work could not be more authentic. As a young man he actually served with the Iron Brigade during the Civil War, under the command of his father General Rufus King. The author went on to serve in the 5th cavalry after the war campaigning with Crook and experiencing warfare against the Indian tribes of the great plains and the south west.

Toon van Eijk Spinoza in het licht van bewustzijnsontwikkeling

De beroemde filosoof Spinoza is moeilijk te doorgronden. Emeritus hoogleraar Maarten van Buuren heeft in 2016 twee boeken over Spinoza gepubliceerd, waarin hij diens filosofie op nauwgezette en verhelderende manier analyseert. Volgens Van Buuren is de kern van Spinoza's ethiek de bevrijding van bevoogding en het streven om in overeenstemming te leven met de wereld en met zichzelf. Een aantal sleutelbegrippen in Spinoza's filosofie zijn de immanente, in de natuur-inwonende God, zelfbeschikking, de rede, intuïtie, macht en zelftoe-eigening. In dit boek bespreek ik deze sleutelbegrippen aan de hand van de analyse van Van Buuren en de filosofie van Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, de grondlegger van de Transcendente Meditatie (TM) techniek. Filosofische begrippen blijven echter tandeloos zonder mogelijkheden om deze ideeën te verwerkelijken. Een synthese van filosofisch redeneren en praktijken voor bewustzijnsontwikkeling is nodig. www.toon-van-eijk.nl

Claud Vivian Hussey Vivian. Wellington.s Hussar General: the Career of Richard Hussey Vivian During the Campaigns in the Low Countries, the Peninsular War . the Waterloo Campaign of 1815

One of Wellington's outstanding horse-soldiersRichard Hussey Vivian saw action throughout Britain's wars with Napoleonic France much of the time under the direct command of the great Duke. This is the military career of a consummate light cavalry soldier of the age of Napoleon. However, Hussey Vivian first went to war as an infantry officer with HM 28th in 1794 as part of the Duke of York's forces on the ill fated expedition to Flanders. In 1798 he transferred to the 7th Light Dragoons and this change in his military status defined his subsequent career. He not only became the 7th's Colonel but retained an affection for it thereafter. In 1808 he took part in the Corunna campaign-actively engaged in the rearguard of the retreat and in actions at Sahagun and others. A return to the Peninsular brought command of a light cavalry Brigade under Hill and later Hussey Vivian was seriously wounded in action in the South of France. At Waterloo he commanded the 6th Brigade under Uxbridge. This essential book for every student of the Peninsular War and the Waterloo Campaign the horse soldiers knew is available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.

Sjors Roeters .Stem van Afrika.. Haile Selassie, de annexatie van Eritrea en de houding van de internationale gemeenschap, 1950-74

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject History - World History - Modern History, grade: 9, University of Amsterdam, language: Dutch, abstract: De Ethiopische Keizer Haile Selassie I stond in de twintigste eeuw in het Westen bekend als de voorvechter van Afrikaanse onafhankelijkheid en saamhorigheid. Zijn charismatische en diplomatieke optredens, samen met de mythische status van Ethiopië hebben ervoor gezorgd dat hij bekend stond als de 'Stem van Afrika'. Zoals meer dan eens voorkomt in de geschiedenis doet deze beeldvorming echter niet geheel eer aan de handelingen van het historische figuur. In de periode 1950-62 annexeert Haile Selassie Eritrea op gewelddadige wijze, en doet de VN-federatie van de ooit gelijkwaardige staten Ethiopië-Eritrea daarmee teniet. De internationale gemeenschap die na het eindigen van de Italiaanse bezetting in 1941 de federatie heeft gecreëerd onthoudt zich van enige reactie op de Ethiopische agressie. In 1963 houdt Haile Selassie nog een toespraak in de VN waarin hij zich definitief vestigt als beschermheer van vreedzame internationale co-existentie. De afwezigheid van een reactie van de internationale gemeenschap heeft meerdere redenen. Zo zijn de nieuwe Afrikaanse leiders bang voor een sneeuwbaleffect waarbij de toezegging van zelfbeschikkingsrecht voor Eritrea zou leiden tot een enorme golf aan onafhankelijkheidsoorlogen door andere afvallige regio's op het continent. Verder speelde Haile Selassie een diplomatiek spel wa...

Ralph Wallenborn Historiciteit bij Foucault. Een hermeneutiek van het subject

Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Philosophy - Philosophy of the Present, Erasmus University Rotterdam (Philosophy), language: Dutch, abstract: De centrale vraag in mijn essay draait om de rol van de historiciteit in het discursieve denken van Foucault, zowel in methodische zin alsook gerelateerd aan begrippen als autonomie en vrijheid. Wat dat laatste betreft, is het mijns inziens een dooddoener om te stellen dat een bepaalde mate van zelfbeschikking in Foucaults discoursanalyse bij voorbaat uit te sluiten is (als je het individu begrijpt als knooppunt in een netwerk van relaties, dan bestaat daartoe de neiging).Vragen die ik graag wil beantwoorden, zijn:1. Welke plaats heeft de filosofie in de hermeneutiek van het subject? Wat blijft er over als historisch bepaalde machtsdispositieven de enige methodologische fundering zijn voor onze blik op de wereld (zowel in persoonlijke zin als in de wetenschappen)? Verwordt de filosoof hiermee tot een veredelde filoloog, die zich alleen in termen van intersubjectiviteit over zijn onderzoeksmaterie mag uitspreken?2. Hoe vindt op micro- en macroniveau subjectivering plaats in het licht van de historische context en op grond van welke argumenten trekt Foucault conclusies over de aard van een mogelijke subjectwording?3. In hoeverre is de nalatenschap van Foucault uit het huidige wetenschappelijke discours weg te denken? Of positief geformuleerd: hoe actueel is zijn denken en welke aanknopingspunten biedt het voor de huidige vragen bi...

John E. Tuel The War in Italy. the Second Italian War of Independence, 1859

A clash of empires in Italy Variously called, 'The Second Italian War of Independence,' 'The Franco-Austrian War.' 'The Austro-Sardinian War' and 'The Austro-Piedmontese War' this notable European conflict of the middle years of the nineteenth century played a pivotal role in the shaping of modern Europe. The declining Austro-Hungarian empire of the Hapsburgs struggled to maintain its hold on the Italian states as they fought to create a unified nation. An alliance of Sardinia and France fought the Austrian Empire in northern Italy where, for the final time, both protagonists were commanded in the field by their respective emperors. The conflict was short, lasting only from May to July in 1859, but it included the notable battles of Magenta and Solferino which were both allied victories. The outcome of the war was a negotiated peace prompted by France's desire not to draw Prussia into the war. This book is drawn from reports made by the Times reporter on the spot and enhanced by forty illustrations by Carlo Bossoli who was a well known scenic artist of the period.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Curtis D. Taylor, Strategic Studies Institute, U.S. Army War College Breaking The Bathsheba Syndrome. Building A Performance Evaluation System That Promotes Mission Command

Survey after survey across the U.S. Army continue to reveal broad concern about the Army's top-down performance evaluation system. Many claim that it drives behavior in organizations that not only inhibits the exercise of mission command, but also rewards image management over organizational leadership. Colonel Curtis Taylor takes a hard look at this system, its benefits and its cultural incentives. More importantly, he asks if the current system promotes or impedes the exercise of mission command. After examining the history of the Army's performance evaluation system and alternative models outside the military, Colonel Taylor concludes that a more holistic system that combines top-down evaluations, peer and subordinate evaluation, and objective testing might be a better approach.

Roger Thomas De Indonesische Jeugdbeweging 1908-1945

Diploma Thesis from the year 1992 in the subject South Asian Studies, South-Eastern Asian Studies, grade: 1, University of Amsterdam (Instituut voor Moderne Aziatische Geschiedenis), language: Dutch, abstract: Bij het lezen van de literatuur over de Indonesische onafhankelijkheidsstrijd viel de rol die de jongeren speelden mij op. De organisatiegraad van deze jongeren, in diverse groepen en eenheden dacht ik te kunnen herleiden tot de invloed die Japan tijdens de bezettingstijd op de jeugd had uitgeoefend. Deze constatering bleek maar op een deel van de waarheid te berusten. Zo kwam ik mij inlezend in het onderwerp, op het ontstaan van de Indonesische jeugdbeweging aan het begin van deze eeuw. De vraag die centraal zou staan voor mijn doctoraalscriptie was die naar de rol van de jongeren in het politieke leven in Indonesië. Daar deze formulering wellicht te ruim zou zijn heb ik haar bondiger gemaakt. De uiteindelijke vraag die centraal zal staan in deze scriptie is: 'In hoeverre is de rol van de jongeren in de beginfase van de onafhankelijkheidsstrijd terug te voeren op de invloed van Japan tijdens de bezettingstijd.'Met de beginfase van de onafhankelijkheidsstrijd wordt de Bersiaptijd bedoeld. Voor het antwoord heb ik naast de gelezen literatuur ook archiefonderzoek gedaan. Mijn kennis over de beginperiode van de jeugdbeweging, de jaren 1908-1939 berust vooral op literatuur. In het RIOD-archief, de Indische Afdeling, heb ik mijn kennis over de Japanse bezettingstijd ...

Combat Studies Institute War Termination. The Proceedings of the War Termination Conference, United States Military Academy West Point

This conference investigates war termination, one of the most important issues facing military and political leaders as they use or contemplate the use of use of military force in the pursuit of national aims. Prompted by the Unified Quest Training and Leader Development theme and discussions about the use of history in training and leader development, the US Army Training and Doctrine Command and the United States Military Academy partnered on this war termination project and invited renowned military historians to provide their views on the subject. The study began with several seminars following Unified Quest in May of 2009. Each contributor provided a brief essay and presented their views on the topic at a War Termination Conference at West Point in June of 2010. These scholarsrepresented a broad range of the American experience from the Revolutionary War to the first Gulf War. The assembled essays and interviews reflect the thoughts of these historians about America's wars, their concluding battles or final campaigns, and ultimately how they ended. While they provide no answers and no formula for successful war termination, they do provide thoughtful reflections from years of study and they suggest important implications for civilian and military decisionmakers today.

R. W. Surby The Horse Soldiers. Raid. Grierson.s Raid . Hatch.s March During the American Civil War

The greatest Union cavalry raid of the Civil WarDuring the American Civil War in 1863, Union army commander, General U. S. Grant ordered Colonel Benjamin Grierson, of the 6th Illinois Cavalry, to embark on a raid into and through Confederate held territory to disrupt the enemy's lines of communication. Grierson departed from La Grange, Tennessee in command of 1,700 men-a brigade of the 6th and 7th Illinois and 2nd Iowa Cavalry regiments. In the course of a 17 day, 800 mile march Grierson's command fought numerous engagements, disabled two railroads, destroyed thousands of dollars-worth of vital war material and took both horses and prisoners before arriving in Baton Rouge. More importantly the raid broke lines of communication between the Confederate command of the eastern theatre and Vicksburg which diverted enemy attention form Grant's main thrust. Union general, W. T. Sherman declared this achievement, 'the most brilliant expedition of the war,' and the following month Grierson was promoted to the rank of brigadier-general. Modern readers who are not completely unfamiliar with the history of the raid may recognise that it was upon these actual events that John Ford's famous film starring John Wayne, 'The Horse Soldiers,' is based. This book was written by a soldier who served under Grierson and so benefits from the authenticity of a first hand account. This text was originally published with the unrelated recollections of a Union army scout,...

Erwin Rommel Infantry Attacks

Field Marshal Erwin Rommel exerted an almost hypnotic influence not only over his own troops but also over the Allied soldiers of the Eighth Army in World War II. Even when the legend surrounding his invincibility was overturned at El Alamein, the aura surrounding Rommel himself remained unsullied. In this classic study of the art of war, Rommel analyzes the tactics that lay behind his success. It became a highly regarded military textbook and also brought its author to the attention of Adolf Hitler. Rommel was to subsequently advance through the ranks to the high command in World War II.

Thomas F. Dawson, E. V. Sumner, Thomas Sturgis The White River Ute War Colorado, 1879. The Ute War: A History of the White River Massacre by Thomas F. Dawson and F. J. V. Skiff, Besieged by the Ute

The last war cry of the Utes of ColoradoThe conflict between the White River Ute Indians of Colorado and the United States Army was the last Indian conflict in the region. In 1879, the Utes were already living on a reservation managed by Indian agent Nathan Meeker. He was dedicated to converting the tribe to both Christianity and an agrarian lifestyle. Inevitably, he provoked outrage among his charges when he pursued his policy to the extent of ploughing the paddock the Utes used for horse grazing. Foreseeing trouble, Meeker called in the army for support, a contingent of which arrived under the command, and arguably heavy and impetuous hand, of Major Thomas Thornburgh. Despite promising the Utes he would not escalate matters by military force and would keep soldiers off the reservation, Thornburgh ordered the opposite and was immediately discovered by a watchful and suspicious Ute force. This prompted open hostilities, resulting in the Battle of Milk Creek. Tactically outmanoeuvred, Thornburgh's command was held under siege and suffered significant casualties including the death of its commanding officer. The Utes then rose against their overseers on the reservation, slaughtered several men, including Meeker and took three women and two children into captivity. The survivors of Thornburgh's command were by now in a poor condition, pinned down in pits behind insubstantial barricades and surrounded by their dead animals. Annihilation would have been certain but for the...

Andries van Renssen Taxonomisch Woordenboek van Relaties

Dit is een taxonomisch woordenboek. Dat betekent dat het een woordenboek is waarin de gedefinieerde concepten (begrippen) gerangschikt zijn in een strikte subtype-supertype hiërarchie, die ook een taxonomie genoemd wordt. Zo'n taxonomie heeft als kenmerk dat de subtype concepten geacht worden informatie en kennis te erven van hun supertype concepten. Daarom is een taxonomie speciaal van belang om computerondersteunde zoekprocessen te verbeteren met behulp van logica en redeneren. Het woordenboek definieert soorten relaties, waarvan er een aantal ook gedefinieerd zijn in ISO en andere standaarden, maar die meestal niet voorkomen in gewone woordenboeken. Soorten relaties worden onder andere gebruikt bij informatiemodelleren en database ontwerp en bij gegevensuitwisseling tussen systemen in het Semantische Web en voor het uitdrukken van informatie in computerinterpreteerbare systeemonafhankelijke formele talen, zoals Formeel Nederlands. Die talen zijn bedoeld om interoperabiliteit van systemen te bevorderen.

Jules Van Rooyen Sluiproutes Van de Macht

Tweede, verbeterde druk! In het voorjaar van 2010 verklaren vooraanstaande bankiers dat 'Financiële instellingen de afgelopen twintig tot dertig jaar doorgedrongen zijn tot in het hart van de staat en dat ze als een staat gereguleerd moeten worden'. Zij waarschuwen voor monsters die ons kunnen vernietigen en dat voortdurend proberen. De Duitse minister van Financiën pleit voor het inzetten van de Inlichtingendiensten op de geldwereld. De dreiging komt uit die hoek; ze voeren een oorlog met financiële middelen en heerst middels economische crises, destabiliserende massamigraties, wereldwijde natuurrampenscenarios en culturele perversies. De mens moet zijn plaats vinden in de New World Order van geheime netwerken, grootbanken, multinationals en supranationale organisaties. Opgejaagd op de weg van de zelfvernietiging, lijken de Europese volken niet meer aan de ondergang van hun cultuur en beschaving te kunnen ontsnappen.

Wolfgang Karl Jungmeier War Rooms. Medienphilosophische Aspekte

Dieses Buch zeigt die Ursprünge und historischen Weiterentwicklungen des Konzepts "War Room". Darüber hinaus erfolgt eine kritische Analyse der philosophischen Grundaspekte Medialität, Räumlichkeit und Zeitlichkeit in Bezug auf War Rooms.War Rooms waren ursprünglich Kommandozentralen für den militärischen Bereich, in erster Linie darauf ausgerichtet, Entscheidungsfindungen zu optimieren. Die Weiterentwicklungen dieser geschichtlichen Konzeption sind insofern höchst bedeutsam für die Gegenwart, da sie als Vorlagen für heutige Entscheidungszentren in Politik und Wirtschaft dienen. Trotz dieser Relevanz wurde die Thematik bisher kaum bearbeitet.Das Buch besteht aus drei Teilen: Erstens wird die historische Entwicklung der Idee des Feldherrn anhand einer vierteiligen Feldherrntypologie nachgezeichnet (genialer, technokratischer, technisch-psychologischer und informatisierter Feldherr). Zweitens werden drei bedeutsame geschichtliche Beispiele für War Rooms angeführt (Schlieffenplan, Cabinet War Rooms, White House Situations Room), die sich jeweils auf einen der drei letzten Feldherrntypen beziehen. Schließlich werden die herausgearbeiteten Feldherrnstufen hinsichtlich medienphilosophischer Aspekte analysiert. This book evaluates the origins as well as the historical advancements of the War Room conception. Additionally, a critical analysis of the War Room's philosophical aspects, mediality, spatiality, and temporality is provided. Originally, War Rooms were command cen...

Nowhere has the U.S. military established more bases, lost more troops, or spent more money in the last thirty years than in the Middle East and Central Asia. These regions fall under the purview of United States Central Command (CENTCOM); not coincidentally, they include the most energy-rich places on earth. From its inception, CENTCOM was tasked with the military and economic security of this key strategic area, the safeguarding of commercial opportunities therein, and ultimately the policing of a pivotal yet precarious space in the broader global economy. CENTCOM calls this mission its -Long War.- This book tells the story of that long war: a war underpinned by a range of entangled geopolitical and geoeconomic visions and involving the use of the most devastating Western interventionary violence of our time.Starting with a historical perspective, John Morrissey explores CENTCOM's Cold War origins and evolution, before addressing key elements of the command's grand strategy, including its interventionary rationales and use of the law in war. Engaging a wide range of scholarship on neoliberalism, imperialism, geopolitics, and Orientalism, the book then looks in-depth at the military interventions CENTCOM has spearheaded and critically assesses their consequences in terms of human geography. Recent books on CENTCOM have focused on command structures, intelligence issues, and interpersonal rivalries. In contrast, The Long War asks critical questions about CENTCOM's...
