April 2009 NetLibrary eBook of the Month: After the War

Posted on: Mar 31, 2009 @ 11:35:56 am

After the War: Nation-Building from FDR to George W. Bush by James Dobbins, Michele A. Poole, Austin Long, Benjamin Runkle

The RAND Corporation, 2008

After the War: Nation-Building from FDR to George W. Bush addresses the manner in which U.S. policy toward postconflict reconstruction has been created and implemented and the effect that these processes have had on mission outcomes. Through the lens of presidential decision making style and administrative structure, from the post-World War II era through the Cold War, post-Cold War era, and current war on terrorism, it is both possible and necessary to reassess how these elements can work in favor of, as well as against, the nation-building goals of the U.S. government and military and those of its coalition partners and allies.

Although not yet a part of the UCF NetLibrary eBook collection, the April eBook of the Month is provided through the generous support of the RAND Corporation. To read, click on NetLibrary on the UCF Libraries list of databases at
