In the crucial moment after the Korean War, the United States and the People’s Republic of China circled each other warily. They shifted between confrontation and conciliation, ratcheting up tension yet also embarking on peace initiatives. Tao Wang offers a new account of Sino–American relations in the mid-1950s that situates the two great powers in their international context. He reveals how both the United States and China adopted a policy of attempting to isolate their adversary and explores how Chinese and American leaders perceived and reacted to each other’s strategies. Although the policy of the Eisenhower administration was to contain China, Washington often overestimated Chinese aggressiveness, worrying allies and neutral states. Sensitive to the differences within the Western camp, Chinese leaders sought to convince American allies to persuade the United States to back down. Wang analyzes diplomatic maneuvering over a peace settlement in Indochina, an American defense pact with Taiwan, and the anticolonial Bandung Conference, showing how political pressure pushed American leaders to make concessions. He challenges the portrayal of Communist states as driven by ideology, showing that Chinese leaders adopted a pragmatic policy during these crucial years. Drawing on Chinese, Taiwanese, Russian, Vietnamese, British, and American archival material, including reclassified Chinese Foreign Ministry documents, Isolating the Enemy offers new insight into Chinese diplomacy in the 1950s and U.S. foreign policy under the Eisenhower administration through a nuanced portrayal of Sino–American interactions.

Operational Isolation of the Enemy in Offensive Urban Operations

Operational Isolation of the Enemy in Offensive Urban Operations

The Joint Task Force (JTF) must take five key actions to operationally isolate the enemy: First, the enemy's logistics must be cut off. Next, enemy command, control, communication, and information capabilities must be degraded.

The purpose of this paper is to argue that isolating the enemy at the operational level is the most important aspect of successful urban operations; in fact, an attack on an urbanized area should not be executed before the enemy is isolated. The Joint Task Force (JTF) must take five key actions to operationally isolate the enemy: First, the enemy's logistics must be cut off. Next, enemy command, control, communication, and information capabilities must be degraded. Third, friendly forces must control key components of the urban infrastructure. Additionally, friendly forces should isolate the enemy physically and psychologically from non-combatants by fostering a sense of friendly force legitimacy with the local population. Fifth, friendly forces must control all dimensions of the battlespace in an urban environment to complete the isolation of the enemy. The JTF effectively isolates the enemy by coordinating these five actions, which shape the area of operations to create the necessary conditions for tactical success to achieve operational and strategic objectives.

Our Companions Our Enemies

Our Companions, Our Enemies is the true story of author Steven R. McFadden's journey to victory over negative emotions so strong that they seemed like real people. As a child, Steve would often talk to Dee and Ann, the twin sisters he believed lived in his house. What his parents thought were imaginary friends instead turned out to be manifestations of the spirits of Depression and Anger that followed the McFaddens like members of the family. God revealed to Steve that these spirits he thought loved him were actually bitter adversaries who wanted to consume him. Though Steve began to draw closer to God, the challenges of his life took their toll. Caring for a physically disabled mother and living with a physically distant father, experiencing feelings of rejection when he was sent to live with friends, and wrestling with the call of God on his life left this man broken and in need of grace. Throughout Our Companions, Our Enemies, Steve interweaves the lessons he has learned throughout his battles with depression, anger, and rage, which led to equally challenging battles with alcohol, lust, and other addictions that lead to self-destruction. His patent honesty about his own failures and successes, his loves and losses, and his ultimate hope will resonate with anyone who needs to know that it is never too late to turn their life around.

On 7 September 1812 at Borodino, 75 miles west of Moscow, the armies of the Russian and French empires clashed in one of the climactic battles of the Napoleonic Wars. This horrific—and controversial—contest has fascinated historians ever since. The survival of the Russian army after Borodino was a key factor in Napoleon's eventual defeat and the utter destruction of the French army of 1812. In this thought-provoking new study, Napoleonic historian Alexander Mikaberidze reconsiders the 1812 campaign and retells the terrible story of the Borodino battle as it was seen from the Russian point of view. His original and painstakingly researched investigation of this critical episode in Napoleon's invasion of Russia provides the reader with a fresh perspective on the battle and a broader understanding of the underlying reasons for the eventual Russian triumph.

Biological control – utilizing a population of natural enemies to seasonally or permanently suppress pests – is not a new concept. The cottony cushion scale, which nearly destroyed the citrus industry of California, was controlled by an introduced predatory insect in the 1880s. Accelerated invasions by insects and spread of weedy non-native plants in the last century have increased the need for the use of biological control. Use of carefully chosen natural enemies has become a major tool for the protection of natural ecosystems, biodiversity and agricultural and urban environments. This book offers a multifaceted yet integrated discussion on two major applications of biological control: permanent control of invasive insects and plants at the landscape level and temporary suppression of both native and exotic pests in farms, tree plantations, and greenhouses. Written by leading international experts in the field, the text discusses control of invasive species and the role of natural enemies in pest management. This book is essential reading for courses on Invasive Species, Pest Management, and Crop Protection. It is an invaluable reference book for biocontrol professionals, restorationists, agriculturalists, and wildlife biologists.

This book, first published in 1963, is an analysis of modern warfare in the enemy’s rear, written by the leading authority on irregular warfare, and stemming from a close examination of real-life examples. Rear warfare on scale poses many problems, such as the exact field of operations; supply line issues; combat or harassment; and coordination with frontline troops. There is also the issue of protecting one’s own rear troops.
