Beyond the Strait: PLA Missions Other Than Taiwan, edited by Mr. Roy Kamphausen, Dr. David Lai, and Dr. Andrew Scobell. As its capabilities increase in tandem with China's rising power and expanding national interests, the PLA is involved in an increasing number and variety of missions besides its traditional focus on contingencies in the Taiwan Strait. This book explores these other missions, including disaster and humanitarian relief, UN peacekeeping operations, counterterrorism and border defense, and outer space and cyberspace security. Chapter authors consider the interplay between China's armed forces and its complex foreign policy and international security environment, describe how these interactions affect China's policy toward the Asia-Pacific region, and provide implications for U.S. strategic interests..

The New Balance: Armed Stabilization and the Future of U.S. Landpower, by Mr. Nathan Freier. The author calls for an unconventional revolution in U.S. landpower forces that optimizes them for intervention in complex and violent crises of governance and security in states crippled with internal disorder. He argues that the armed stabilization of states and regions in crises will not be just equivalent in importance to traditional warfighting in future land force planning, but will be the primary land force mission for the foreseeable future.

A History of Socio-Cultural Intelligence and Research Under the Occupation of Japan, by Lt Col Michael Meyer, USAF. Following the surrender of Japan, sociological research supplemented traditional intelligence analysis in informing occupational leaders. The author contends that the framework established under the occupation serves as a model of how to process and produce foreign socio-cultural intelligence and research during nation building. He provides lessons learned to include encouraging close cooperation between intelligence professionals and more specialized sociologists, incorporating diverse collection sources, working closely with host nationals, and formally documenting social science project findings.

New NATO Members: Security Consumers or Producers? by Colonel Joel R. Hillison. The author analyzes NATO defense expenditures over the past 10 years and troop contributions of the 1999 wave of new members (Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland) during three NATO missions: Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. He concludes that these new members are fulfilling their commitments, including contributions to NATO missions, and suggests that as new member capabilities and levels of interoperability have increased, new member states have been more willing to take on additional responsibility and burdens.

On April 3, Dr. Antulio Echevarria participated in a "Ways of War" Roundtable at the annual Society for Military History Conference, in Murfreesboro, TN. On 21 April, Dr. Echevarria presented the 36th Annual Ewing Lecture, "American Way of War or Way of Battle?" at Lycoming College, PA.

On April 29, Dr. Steven Metz presented a talk on the psychology of insurgent recruitment and participation at the RAND Corporation Insurgency Board in Arlington, VA. He argued that the United States should shift from an essentially political conceptualization of insurgency to a psychological one. This paper will be included in a forthcoming SSI book on insurgency.

On April 17 and April 21, Dr. W. Andrew Terrill was quoted in articles on Iraqi stability in the Washington Post. On April 26, Dr. Terrill was quoted on the Iraq situation in the Wisconsin State Journal.

Dr. Stephen Blank lectured in Paris, France, at the Institut Francais des Relations Internationales on US-Russia Relations on April 27.

Renowned nuclear historian, Sir Lawrence Freedman, reviews the SSI book Nuclear Heuristics in Foreign Affairs.

Dr. Steven Metz and Dr. David Lai were at the Brookings Institution on April 30 to launch Beyond the Strait: PLA Missions Other Than Taiwan. Dr. Metz gave the welcoming remarks and Dr. Lai provided commentary on the significance of the book. The book is an insightful, timely analysis for the Obama Administration as they form a policy toward China and the PLA.
