New York: National Strategy Information Center, Inc., 1986. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. xix, , 59,  pages. Illustrations (color). Strategic Defense Glossary. For Further Reading. Introduction by Frank R. Barnett. Erasure residue on half-title page. Cover has some wear and soiling. Frank R. Barnett was the founder of the National Strategy Information Center. Mr. Barnett's interest in national security studies grew from a belief that questions of war and peace should not be the left to Federal officials and the military alone. He worked to develop educational programs in conjunction with the American Bar Association, universities, organized labor and business. He founded the center in 1962. Its goal was to bring together leaders of public opinion and provide information on national defense and international security. Known for its anti-Communist and pro-military stance, the center continued to monitor the military equations after the demise of the Soviet Bloc. It also conducted research on American intelligence policy and sponsored unclassified workshops with intelligence specialists.

DJ is price clipped. DJ has some wear, soiling, tears and chips. Some endpaper discoloration. Army General Billy Mitchell fought long and hard for the importance of airpower and the need for a strong national defense. Today, we know Mitchell as the father of the United States Air Force. After his passing in 1936, General Henry H. "Hap" Arnold, the commander of World War II Army Forces, succeeded Mitchell as the leading voice for airpower. Nearly a decade later, General Arnold’s advocacy for an independent civilian organization was incorporated as the Air Force Association. Our first national president was noted aviation pioneer and Medal of Honor recipient, General Jimmy Doolittle, who spent AFA’s inaugural year establishing chapters across the country. Air Force Magazine is published by the Association.

New York: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1984. First Edition [stated]. First printing [stated]. Hardcover. xi, , 96,  pages. DJ has some wear and soiling, with large tears and chips. These essays by the former Ambassador to India and present New York Senator address three issues: international peace, international racism and international law. The essay on international peace focuses on the history and meaning of the arms race. The essay on international racism examines the Communist theory of racism, in particular the Soviet use of the term "Zionism" as a synonym for racism, that is applied to those who oppose Soviet totalitarianism. The third essay explores the idea of law in the conduct of nations. From the New York Times Review by Richard Bernstein: The mind of Daniel Patrick Moynihan has ranged so nimbly over so many subjects that the senior Senator of New York may well be the foremost scholar-politician of the land. This slender volume, appearing midway through his second senatorial term, continues Mr. Moynihan’s tradition of elegant and original thinking on the big questions of the day. The Senator puts three subjects under scrutiny, all of them having to do with America’s role in the world and all of them related to the concept of loyalty – to nation, to good sense, to immutable principle – that the Senator sees his fellow citizens and politicians abandoning at our great peril.

Washington DC: Center for Air Force History, 1993. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Trade paperback. iii, ,97,  pages. Illustrations. Glossary. Index. Cover has slight wear and soiling. This work was to be part of the now-defunct Warrior Series. In 1982 General Lew Allen, Jr. called for "the continuing study of military history, combat leadership, the principles of war, and particularly the applications of air power." The USAF community can benefit from such study and reflection. Professor Kohn’s focus has been American military history, emphasizing national security and military policy, strategy, the American experience with war-making, and the connections between war, the military, and American society. His concentration has been on current civil-military relations, particularly civilian control of the military. His long-term projects are studies of presidential war leadership in American history and the American experience of war, but he continues to research, consult, lecture, and publish in the area of contemporary civil-military relations, military professionalism, and professional military education.
