A novel examination of civil-military interaction in particular between militaries and humanitarian actors, in light of the so-called 'Norwegian model' that espouses a clear divide between political and humanitarian (or military and civilian - the model is in fact unclear) actors, while maintaining a tight coordination between them. Using a multi-actor security framework, this book examines whether or not the Norwegian government is correct in its assumptions (about both the model and civil-military knowledge amongst military personnel) and concludes that the Norwegian model is a well-meaning but inefficient and problematic model in reality.

Declining budgets and withdrawing military forces seem to spell a period of diminishing influence for U.S. business and government officials overseas. Not so! Bees and Spiders provides answers on how to develop real influence that does not come through massive military presence or big budgets. These answers promote the idea of influence through developing relationships. Such relationships can provide influence that lasts even when there is little money and few military forces. This influence is lasting because it is empathy-based. Bees and Spiders explains the critical nature of developing empathy, and provides usable and useful recommendations for turning simple understanding into the possibility of seeing the world from another perspective. Brian L. Steed is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army and currently serves as an instructor of military history at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. He served in the Middle East for more than eight and a half years. During that time he was an officer in the Jordanian Army, a liaison to the Israel Defense Forces, an advisor and analyst in Iraq, and responsible for coordinating all training between the U.S. and the United Arab Emirates. He has traveled extensively to nearly every Arabic-speaking country. This book comes from a seminar series he designed and taught to help advisers, and was later used for business executives in the United Arab Emirates. His three previous books are about applied history, and military and organizational theory. Publisher's website: http: //sbprabooks.com/BrianLSteed

Conducting the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) and projecting United States (US) influence worldwide has meant an increasing number of US diplomats and military forces are assigned to locations around the world, some of which have not previously had a significant US presence. In the current security environment, understanding foreign cultures and societies has become a national priority. Cultural understanding is necessary both to defeat adversaries and to work successfully with allies. As indicated by recent experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia, understanding Islamic cultures is particularly important. This document defines a way US military leaders can prepare for and conduct military operations through the lens of cultural awareness. It provides a method for helping military commanders, staffs, and trainers engage successfully in any type of operation with an emphasis on postconflict stability operations. It also suggests modifications to the traditional intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB) and the military decisionmaking process (MDMP) to address the analytical difficulties posed by the conduct of military operations within and among different cultures. Initially, this research was undertaken to support military training conducted at the Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) and the National Training Center (NTC). In its final form, however, this research will serve to inform additional studies as well as projects, conferences, and training conducted throughout the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of State (DOS), and miscellaneous intelligence agencies. This study will be of interest to US Armed Forces and intelligence community personnel planning for or conducting operations in Arab and Middle East countries. It will also be of interest to any armed forces, law enforcement, or intelligence community personnel that need to assess the intentions, motivations, and decisionmaking styles of persons from other cultures.
