SSI books and monographs by Dr. D. Robert Worley

  • Waging Ancient War: Limits on Preemptive Force

    February 01, 2003

    Authored by Dr. D. Robert Worley.
    The author addresses the ways that the age of terrorism is affecting American grand strategy. He contends that terrorism has made many of the basic concepts of international relations and national security obsolete. Declaring war on a tactic—terrorism—erodes the clarity necessary for coherent strategy.

  • W(h)ither Corps?

    August 01, 2001

    Authored by Dr. D. Robert Worley.

So far, the focus of organizational transformation has been on the redesign of tactical units such as the interim brigade combat teams. But corps--the Army's operational level organizations--must also be transformed.
