    Another element of the American concern was strategic; the location of Cuba, corking as it did the bottle of the Gulf of Mexico, made it of great interest to American strategic planners. It's too early to tell, but one thing should already be clear: There is no chapter on the grammar and logic of petrodollar warfare in Clausewitz, either. One reason that Beijing wants desperately to integrate Taiwan into its dominion is so that it can redirect its naval energies away from the Taiwan Strait and toward the Indian Ocean. Meanwhile, the revolutionaries expelled British officials from the 13 states, and declared themselves an independent nation on 4 July It was a war with broad implications and historic significance, for it thrust the United States into the ranks of great powers and thereby signaled a dramatic sea change for both the United States, and for the world.

    Lawerence H. After pages of On War, you do get a sense of Clausewitz's definition of War -- but you still know next to nothing about the "concept of the political" from which he operates. And so a map of the Indian Ocean exposes the contours of power politics in the twenty-first century. For the former, the pla turned to the American Mahan, not the Prussian Clausewitz; for the latter, the pla went back not only to Sun-Tzu, but also to Lawrence, Beaufre, Arquilla, Lind, etc. Long-building tensions between the Northern and Southern States over slavery suddenly reached a climax after the election of Abraham Lincoln of the new anti-slavery Republican Party as U. When not distracted by their own internal problems, Americans watched with interest, and often with open sympathy, for the rebel cause.

    And instead of retaining his youthful by then: immature fascination for Napoleonic battles, he would have been reminded by Nelson's heirs of the strategic importance of "seapower" yet another missing chapter and, above all, he would have learned first-hand from Wellington himself -- a soldier-statesman if ever there was one -- the meaning of "war is the continuation of politics by other means. It was a war with broad implications and historic significance, for it thrust the United States into the ranks of great powers and thereby signaled a dramatic sea change for both the United States, and for the world. The major invasion in Louisiana was stopped by a one-sided military battle that killed the top three British generals and thousands of soldiers. But through the clever use of media in particular Nasser's "Voice of the Arabs," the al-Jazeera of the time and high-visibility fora provided by nascent international organizations the UN, the Arab League, etc. Kaplan's amazing "The Revenge of Geography" explores history, geopolitics and "the battle against fate" through his own ideas and by incorporating the ideas of other strategic thinkers like Mackinder, Mahan, Spykman and Braudel. The early development of the doctrine within the administration is normally credited to Walt Rostow and Roger Hilsman.

It combines the centrality of Islam with global energy politics and the rise of India and China to reveal a multilayered, multipolar world. At very little cost, there could be ten times more, while the International Military Education and Training IMET program could achieve a better balance between sheer training and genuine education.

Robert H. In the end, the outbreak of the Spanish-American War took place not only because many sought it but also because too few made any serious effort to oppose or prevent it.

And it failed to understand that there were elements within the Shiite community that would use force to try to establish a theocratic system. Edward G. Kaplan is instead concerned with the depths of geography and history over millennia -- the influence of mountains, deserts, rivers, oceans and natural resources, especially oil -- and the impact of population growth, urbanization, global climate change, democracy and overall human nature.

Fought at sea from tothe United States won a string of victories in the Caribbean. In short, the Virginius episode demonstrated that in the United States lacked the capability to express its outrage, even against a tired and fading empire such as Spain.
