This research develops an explanation of the causal factors that influence state concessions offered in negotiated settlements ending civil wars. It proposes an explanation drawn from bargaining theory, existing literature addressing the likelihood of negotiated settlements, and inductively derived variables. Specifically, it integrates the link between several general factors associated with conflict---the costs of war, incentives to cheat, the divisibility of stakes, the degree of democracy of the state, the presence or absence of a stalemate, and the timing and location of the settlement---and the degree to which states make concessions to the rebels. The relationships between these factors are analyzed quantitatively using probit and Tobit models as well as with qualitative case narratives using a dataset that describes all civil wars beginning between 1945 and 1997. The basic conclusion of this research is that bargaining theory by itself does not adequately identify the factors that influence state concessions. It does, however, provide some explanatory power and can be enhanced by the inclusion of existing literature and the results of the inductive analysis.

The forty-second book in the Cliff Hardy series Will one man's loss be Hardy's gain? 'I'd read about it in the papers, heard the radio reports and seen the TV coverage and then forgotten about it, the way you do with news stories.' The police suspect the father, Gerard Fonteyn OA, a wealthy businessman. But he's hired Cliff to find his daughter, given him unlimited expenses and posted a $250,000 reward for information. Finally there's a break - an unconfirmed sighting of Juliana Fonteyn, alive and well. But as usual, nothing is straightforward. Various other players are in the game - and Cliff doesn't know the rules, or even what the game might be. He's determined to find out, and as the bodies mount up the danger to himself and to Juliana increases.

This monograph analyzes doctrine relating to the creation of Commander's Critical Information Requirements (CCIR) and its role in providing direction to units in combat. It compares doctrine to theory to assess it's doctrine's applicability in the face of rising complexity. It reviews the battles of LZ X-Ray and LZ Albany to assess U.S. Army decision making on a complex battlefield and to compare it to theory and doctrine. The paper addresses a gap in doctrine; the lack of a CCIR derivation methodology. A methodology is required to aid the commander in building and communicating his vision to his unit. This paper offers a methodology and a series of recommendations to aid in its application. History has revealed a tendency towards the evolution of more complex battlefields. This has generated a continuous challenge for command and control. Theory offers a description of the rising complexity. Ludwig Von Bertalanffy's General Systems Theory describes holistic problem solving. Michael Waldrop and John Casti describe the theory of complexity and offer practical applications for it's use. Peter Senge offers a series of mental disciplines designed to develop personal and organizational systems thinking and the field of information management offers techniques for systems analysis and design. The combination of these theories, disciplines, and professional fields offers a potential solution for simplifying control, managing information, and building common purpose within military units. The CCIR methodology is a commander's tool. He uses it to provide guidance to his staff to focus the military decision making process and to discipline the flow of information to him. The methodology is holistic and non linear. It facilitates anticipation, self adaptation, and routing of "useful" information to the commander that directly relates to the decisions he must make.
