Regional Security Organizations And National Interests: Analyzing The Nato-Greek Relationship, Constantine P. Danopoulos Oct 1988

Regional Security Organizations And National Interests: Analyzing The Nato-Greek Relationship, Constantine P. Danopoulos

Faculty Publications

This article analyzes the reasons which account for Greece's continuing membership in the Atlantic Alliance, even though NATO has not lived up to expectations and has failed to protect the nation's security against threats from Turkey. Following a brief examination of Greek attitudes toward NATO and the nature of dissatisfaction, the article argues that strategic concerns are, at best, of secondary importance. Instead, Greece's continuing membership in the Alliance is a result of the nation's economic ties to the West and the dependency of its military on NATO and Washington for advanced training, arms, war materiel ...


Political Instability In The Arab Middle East, Delores M. Moses Aug 1988

Political Instability In The Arab Middle East, Delores M. Moses

Master's Theses

The objective of this thesis is to prove that the Middle Eastern States, excluding Israel, experience political instability because the people lack state nationalism.

The people will share a sense of oneness and a common identity with the government if they possess state nationalism.

The methodology used in this paper was to apply the indigenous theory of Christopher Clapham to historical events and the political ...

Refugee Politics And The Origins Of The Cold War: The Hungarian Experience In Montana, Margaret Hill

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

Following the destruction caused by World War II, world leaders, specifically Franklin D. Roosevelt and Josef Stalin, were responsible for leading the mankind into a new era of post-war reconstruction. The necessary alliance of East and West was pitifully short-lived: the ideological conflict between capitalism and communism erupted into the Cold War. Caught in this conflict were countries struggling to rebuild themselves. Due to the quest for spheres of influence, parts of Eastern, as well as Western, Europe were divided between the two dominant powers. One of these nations was Hungary. Due to the national climate during the Cold War ...

Strategies For Greater Autonomy: U.S. - Japan Security Relations And The Development Of The Fourth Defense Buildup Plan, Takeshi Hirose

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

In many ways, international relations have entered a new phase. The superpowers seem to be moving toward arms control as witnessed in the INF treaty. The United Nations has restored its self-confidence through successful intermediary activities. As recent U.S.-Soviet summits indicate, the climate of detente is reemerging. Japan, however, seems to be going in the opposite direction. In 1988, Japan, regardless of its constitutional restraints, has become the third largest spender on defense only behind the superpowers. The self-imposed ceiling on the defense budget, i.e., one percent of its Gross National Product, was breached in 1986. The ...

Autonomy And Secondhand Oil Dependency Of The Yemen Arab Republic, Sheila Carapico Jan 1988

Autonomy And Secondhand Oil Dependency Of The Yemen Arab Republic, Sheila Carapico

Political Science Faculty Publications

Recent scholarship on state autonomy in the Third World has been influenced by the dependency thesis that capital accumulation at the core of the world economy is associated with economic underdevelopment and political dependency at the periphery. Dependency reasoning is rooted in a devastating empirical critique of the once prevalent modernization paradigm, in which national state policy was the central independent variable. According to dependency theory, peripheral nations' subordinate structural positions in the international political economy results in sacrifice of authoritative policy making to foreign investors, bankers, experts, governments, and institutions or their local counterparts. Typically specializing in primary commodity ...
