America and the Future of War

The author offers a historical perspective to show that armed conflict among organized political groups has been mankind’s constant companion and that America must remain prepared to use its military power to deal with an unstable, uncertain, and fractious world.

American Individualism

In this remarkable little volume, Herbert Hoover expounded and vigorously defended what has come to be called American exceptionalism: the set of beliefs and values that made—and still makes--America unique. He argued that America can make steady, sure progress if we preserve our individualism, preserve and stimulate the initiative of our people, insist on and maintain the safeguards to equality of opportunity, and honor service as a part of our national character.

Energy Efficiency

James L. Sweeney examines the energy-efficiency policies and practices of the past forty years and their impact on three crucial systems: the economy, the environment, and national security, showing how energy-efficiency contributions to the country’s overall energy situation have been more powerful than any other development. The author reveals how careful nurturing of private- and public-sector energy efficiency--along with public awareness, appropriate pricing, appropriate policies--and increased research and development, the trends of decreasing energy intensity and increasing energy efficiency can be beneficially accelerated.

Eyes, Ears, and Daggers

Thomas H. Henriksen examines the warrior-spy connection both before and after the formation of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), suggesting that their history contains instances of cooperating, competing, circumventing, and even cutting each other out of the action until their current close alignment.

Henriksen shows how, by adopting an intelligence-driven, targeted counterstrike weapon against terrorists, the United States went from a Cold War Goliath to a more nimble force, thanks largely to the SOF and CIA contributions. Through revisiting and appreciating their respective histories before their partnering to combat Islamist terrorism, he provides a clear understanding of their interaction and offers lessons for the struggle against extremist violence.
