A Manual For American Servicemen in the Arab Middle East
Using Cultural Understanding to Defeat Adversaries and Win the Peace
The Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) has sent U.S. diplomats and troops around the world. In the current security environment, understanding foreign cultures is crucial to defeating adversaries and working with allies. Lt. Col. William D. Wunderle explains how U.S. soldiers and commanders can look at military interventions—from preparation to execution—through the lens of cultural awareness, while always minding post-conflict stability operations. He also suggests much-needed changes to the traditional intelligence preparation of the battlefield (IPB) and the military decision-making process (MDMP). Fascinating, concise, and timely, this is a must-read for military personnel, the intelligence community, and anyone seeking to grasp the motivations and decision-making styles of people all over the globe.

Adventure Travel In The Third World
By Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin
Foreword by Robert Young Pelton
Do you have the urge to travel to places where "tourists don't go"? Where an American Express card is a curiosity and a first-aid kit a luxury? Where you might rely on the latest and greatest in adventure gear, only to find the locals wear nothing but a loincloth and a smile? If this sounds like your idea of a great time, then you've found the right book. Authors Jeff Randall and Mike Perrin have logged thousands of miles overseas and have years of experience leading travelers deep in the wildest cities and most rugged backcountry of the Third World. In this book, they help you recognize and minimize the many risks that come with venturing way, way off the beaten path so that you can come home with stories the average tourist will never be able to tell. The authors' hard-earned secrets for staying healthy, happy, and at home in remote and dangerous places include:
Researching your destination the right way before you depart - Arriving in your host country safely and with all your gear intact - Acquiring guides for "abnormal" travels without getting rebuffed or shot - Bribing and smuggling as last-ditch survival tools - Dealing with the many and varied temptations of city and nightlife - Being safe and self-sufficient while journeying deep in the bush.
So get your affairs in order and have your cash tucked away, because you are about to enter the exhilarating world of adventure travel in the Third World.
