This manual is designed to identify and promote the use of global juvenile justice indicators. It was initiated at UNICEF and is published by UNODC.
This handbook aims to provide basic principles, guidelines and resources that will enable United Nations field presences to measure progress towards or regress away from peace consolidation. It may be seen as a first step towards establishing more formalized benchmarking systems to be used by United Nations field presences, including more specific formats and procedures for benchmarking organization, data collection and aggregation, reporting, and templates of benchmarks and indicators. Indeed, a number of United Nations departments and agencies have begun to develop indicators and benchmarks on a range of issues related to peace consolidation, including on the protection of civilians and on women, peace and security. The handbook is thus very much of an evolving document, with this first edition to be revised to reflect subsequent developments in policy and practice as well as comments and reviews from users.

Moving beyond the limited focus of the individual strategic theorist or the great military leader, The Making of Strategy concentrates instead on the processes by which rulers and states have formed strategy. Seventeen case studies--from the fifth century B.C. to the present--analyze through a common framework how strategists have sought to implement a coherent course of action against their adversaries. This fascinating book considers the impact of such complexities as the geographic, political, economic and technical forces that have driven the transformation of strategy since the beginning of civilization and seem likely to alter the making of strategy in the future.
This is the first comprehensive study based on a detailed textual analysis of the classical works on war by Clausewitz, Sun Tzu, Mao Tse-tung, and to a lesser extent, Jomini and Machiavelli. Brushing stereotypes aside, the author takes a fresh look at what these strategic thinkers actually said—not what they are widely believed to have said. He finds that despite their apparent differences in terms of time, place, cultural background, and level of material/technological development, all had much more in common than previously supposed. In fact, the central conclusion of this book is that the logic of waging war and of strategic thinking is as universal and timeless as human nature itself. This third, revised and expanded edition includes five new chapters and some new charts and diagrams.
