Summary

Terrorism: Commentary on Security Documents is a series that provides primary source documents and expert commentary on various topics in the worldwide effort to combat terrorism. Among the documents collected are transcripts of Congressional testimony, reports by such federal government bodies as the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), United Nations Security Council resolutions, reports and investigations by the United Nations Secretary-General and other dedicated UN bodies, and case law from the U.S. and around the globe covering issues related to terrorism. Most volumes carry a single theme, and inside each volume the documents appear within topic-based categories. The series also includes a subject index and other indices that guide the user through this complex area of the law.

Volume 132, The 2012 Shift in U.S. National Security Strategy: The Analysis, takes a critical look at the Obama administration's 2012 strategic guidance, that steps away from the Global War on Terror and its focus on the Middle East, with a reorientation towards the security and economic threats of China and North Korea and the need for diplomatic, economic, and military partnership throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Professor Douglas Lovelace provides a deep critical account of the strategic shift, and presents the unclassified strategy document from the White House alongside reports by the U.S. Department of Defense, Congressional Research Service, Al Jazeera Center for Studies, and various research centers of the U.S. Armed Forces. The documents included in this volume provide meaning and underpinning rationale for the shift in strategy, detail as to what the shift portends for the U.S. Armed Forces, and U.S. efforts to maintain the peaceful status quo and promote free trade initiatives in the region.
