Strategic Insights
A New Era in Civ-Mil Relations: Rendering Advice to Those Who Do Not Want It, by Dr. Don M. Snider

You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. American security policy rests on a three-legged stool consisting of defense, diplomacy, and development. The Obama administration has attempted to rebalance from defense toward diplomacy and development in solving the most vexing international security challenges. But has the rebalancing effort succeeded? Several factors point to a continued militarization of U.S. foreign policy, which has major implications for the U.S. military. Dr. Deni discusses these and related issues, which are all addressed in his recently published monograph, "The Real Rebalancing: American Diplomacy and the Tragedy of President Obama's Foreign Policy." Find this and all other podcasts here and be sure to subscribe.

The faculty of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) includes a carefully selected mix of men and women with deep experience in military and national security strategy. To provide a venue for their analysis of the challenges and best practices of strategic leadership and to make available to the students and faculty of USAWC and other institutions in the professional military educational system, the Strategic Studies Institute has created the "practitioners' corner."
