Description

Author Dr. Frank N. Schubert examines the almost 300 US military deployments that occurred between 1989 and 2001. At the time, the large number of these deployments appeared to overtax the US military and support theories of global chaos. Schubert’s analysis of the American military experience and operations in the post-Cold War decade demonstrates that the operations were neither as diffuse nor as numerous as first thought.

Instead of  looking at hundreds of disparate operations ranging the globe, the book groups common operations in specific regions significantly reducing the overall total and clarifying the focus of the deployments.

Moreover, the nature of the operations comports with a long US military tradition of law enforcement, disaster relief, humanitarian assistance, and nation building as well as constabulary operations, including pacification and so-called small wars.

Susan Carroll prepared the Index, and Penny Norman prepared the manuscript for publication.
