Publisher's full black cloth, gilt lettering on spine. Illustrated with maps and tables. Includes Selected Bibliography and Index. Of the thousands of commanders who served in history's armies, why is it that only a few are remembered as great leaders of men in battle? What combination of personal and circumstantial influences conspire to produce great commanders? What makes a great leader great? Richard A Gabriel analyses the biographies of ten great generals who lived between 1481 BC and AD 632 in an attempt to identify the characteristics of intellect, psychology, personality, and experience that allowed them to tread the path to greatness. Professor Richard Gabriel has selected the ten whom he believes to be the greatest of them all. Those included, and more so those omitted, will surprise many readers. Conspicuous by their absence, for example, are Alexander the Great and Attila the Hun. Richard Gabriel, himself a retired soldier and professor at the Canadian Defence College, uses his selected exemplars to distill the timeless essence of military leadership. .

Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism, Howard, Russell D.; James J.F. Forest; Ambassador Michael Sheehan (Foreword)
14 Howard, Russell D.; James J.F. Forest; Ambassador Michael Sheehan (Foreword) Weapons of Mass Destruction and Terrorism
NY Mcgraw-Hill 2007 0073379700 / 9780073379708 First Printing Soft Cover Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued 
Publisher's glossy wraps. In WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION AND TERRORISM, Brigadier General (Retired) Russell Howard and Dr. James Forest have collected original and previously published seminal articles and essays by scientists, academics, government officials, and members of the nation’s security and intelligence communities. The editors and several of the authors write from practical field experience in nonproliferation and counterterrorism efforts. Others have had significant responsibility for developing government policies to address the threat of weapons of mass destruction and terrorism. The contributors include a majority of the significant names in the field including Bruce Hoffman, Brian Jenkins, Jonathan Tucker, Rohan Gunaratna, David Franz, Richard Betts, William Rosenau, and David Albright.Unit One of the book introduces key terms and addresses important strategic and policy debates. Authors explain how the new forms of terrorism affect the post-9/11 security environment and introduce the notion that weapons of mass destruction could give terrorists short-term, asymmetric attack advantages over conventional military forces. Unit Two offers detailed accounts of the characteristics, availability, and dangers of specific types of WMD, along with four case studies that associate theory with practice—an important feature of this volume. Unit Three deals with past, present, and future national and international responses to—and defenses against—the threat of WMD terrorism. And in the final section of the volume, authors predict future WMD threats and seek to draw on past events and mistakes in order to identify lessons and strategies for the future.Appendices include a primer on bioterrorism and fact sheets on chemical, biological, nuclear and radiological terrorism.. The volume shows only the slightest shelf-wear, otherwise unmarked, unread, tight, square, and clean. NEAR FINE. . Small 4to 9" - 11" tall. 598 pp
