America's army; a model for interagency effectiveness.


America's army; a model for interagency effectiveness.

Bradford, Zeb B. and Frederic J. Brown.

Greenwood Press


250 pages




Bradford (former senior military fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations and resident scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars) and Brown (a retired Lt. General working as "Senior Mentor establishing Teams of Leaders" in the US European Command) previously collaborated on The U.S. Army in Transition (1973) about rebuilding the army after Vietnam. Here they team up again to warn that the US Army once again faces profound institutional challenges and to provide advice on how to overcome them. Their emphasis is on fashioning the army as a learning organization and they argue that their recommendations can also be applied across government in an effort to improve interagency effectiveness.
