    Väktare, ombud, kritiker: Sverige i amerikanskt säkerhetstänkande, 1961-19682009Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok utgör den noggrannaste och mest djupgående beskrivningen hittills av USA:s syn på ­Sverige under det turbulenta 1960-talet. Få har grävt så djupt i amerikanska arkiv om Sveriges ­säkerhetspolitiska roll som författaren. I boken redovisas ett av de viktigaste fynd som gjorts i amerikanska arkiv. Ett tidigare okänt ­riktlinjedokument om USA:s planerade politik mot Sverige, undertecknat av Henry Kissinger från september 1975. Det är den ­första tydliga indikationen på USA:s syn på Sverige efter det så traumatiska ”frostens år” 1973. Dokumentet visar att USA:s syn på Sverige åter stabiliserades och att den positiva syn som funnits i början av 1960-talet åter dominerade. Författaren ger också den hittills mest detaljerade bilden av verksamheten vid den amerikanska ambassaden i Stockholm på 1960-talet, inklusive CIA:s arbete genom att innehållet i den amerikanske underrättelseagenten James Everetts opublicerade ­memoarer presenteras. Everett arbetade som illegal underrättelse­agent i Sverige för CIA:s räkning under åren 1960–67. Han berättar bl.a. om hanteringen av sovjetiska och kinesiska ­avhoppare, värvning och utnyttjande av agenter i Sverige, avlyssning mot sovjetiska och kinesiska mål.Vidare bedömer författaren amerikanskt agerande i samband med viktiga händelser:

    1. Den finländska notkrisen 1961: Den djupaste studie som hittills gjorts ur ett amerikanskt perspektiv.. Författaren konstaterar att USA initialt bedömde den sovjetiska noten som en förlängning av Berlinkrisen men på en ny arena medan man efter några veckor alltmer såg den sovjetiska aktionen som ett sätt att stärka ­Kekkonens maktposition och därigenom skaffa sig allt större kontroll över Finland. I kapitlet om notkrisen presenteras både State Department, Pentagons och CIA:s analyser av krisen och Kekkonens agerande. Här beskrivs även den roll som spelades av den sovjetiske avhopparen Golitsyn samt den hemliga framstöt som gjordes av amerikanska diplomater gentemot Erlander i januari 1962.

    2. Spionfallet Stig Wennerström 1963–64: I ett eget kapitel beskrivs ingående det samarbete som skedde mellan svenska och amerikanska myndigheter för att utreda flygöverstens spioneri mot Sverige och Väst. Här framkommer bl.a. att samarbetet mellan de svenska och amerikanska underrättelse- och säkerhetstjänsterna var betydligt mer ingående än vad som tidigare angivits. Även Olof Palmes viktiga roll i den känsliga politisk-diplomatiska hanteringen av fallet skärskådas. Slutligen beskrivs hur USA, i samband med Wennerströmaffären, försökte locka Sverige närmare Väst, bl.a. genom utökat militärt samarbete.

    3. Den svenska Vietnamkritiken och leveransproblemen med ­luftvärnsroboten Redeye 1968: I kapitlet framkommer vilken stabiliserande funktion det militära samarbetet hade och hur detta tenderade att kompensera för den kris som fanns i de politiska och diplomatiska relationerna. Avslutningsvis konstateras att Sverige hade tre roller i det amerikanska säkerhetstänkandet: rollen som militärstrategisk väktare vid Natos norra flank, rollen som politiskt ombud i internationella och regionala sammanhang, samt rollen som kritiker av stormakternas agerande i världen. Denna tredelning är ett viktigt bidrag i forskningen om Sveriges roll under det kalla kriget. Väktarrollen tenderade att vara stabil under perioden. Ombudsrollen däremot blev allt svårare att fylla pga. de negativa konsekvenserna av det utökade utrymmet för kritikerrollen.

    Adopting a Recipe for Success: Modern Armed Forces and the Institutionalization of the Principles of War2012In: Comparative Strategy, ISSN 0149-5933, E-ISSN 1521-0448, Vol. 31, no 3, p. 263-285Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prevailing explanation of the institutionalization of the principles of war is misleading. Although the introduction of the principles into Western doctrine coincided with total war and the need to train unprecedented numbers of soldiers and junior officers in tactics, the fact that the principles disappeared from doctrines immediately prior to and during the Second World War suggests that they were not institutionalized to meet an increased need to educate the military. Instead, we test two other explanations: one drawing on the principles’ military effectiveness and one drawing upon the principles’ explanatory power. We find that neither one of these hypotheses stand. Instead, we conclude by elaborating on how the institutionalization of the principles of war can be made understandable using non-rationalist frameworks, in particular the growth of a particular kind of identity of staff officers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. According to this framework, the two world wars interrupted—rather than promoted—the institutionalization of the principles, since the wars with their large death tolls and mass recruitment increased the difficulties of creating a separate and unique identity for the burgeoning corps of staff officers.

    Religion or reason?: exploring alternative ways to measure the quality of doctrine2016In: Journal of Strategic Studies, ISSN 0140-2390, E-ISSN 1743-937X, Vol. 39, no 2, p. 198-212Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, we address the often ignored issue of quality standards for doctrine. In doing so, we contribute to the existing literature on military doctrine, since much of previous research has focused on outlining the effects of doctrine or the causes of particular doctrinal content, rather than how we should measure its quality. The predominant way of understanding quality of doctrine is based on the rationalist understanding of doctrine as a force multiplier. However, rationalist aims do not necessarily tell us anything about the contents of doctrine. Hence, a doctrine can be seemingly of high quality, but ultimately impede or lead armed forces astray. Rather than focusing on the utilitarian side of doctrine, we suggest that doctrine should mainly be understood as articles of faith or a belief system. And thus the quality of doctrine becomes inextricably linked to military norms and military identity. Writing doctrine thus becomes part of ritual, rather than reason.

    Enduring war: Heroes’ Acre, ‘the empty throne’, and the politics of disappearance2016In: Critical Military Studies, ISSN 2333-7486, E-ISSN 2333-7494, Vol. 2, no 3, p. 155-172Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    War memorials are a common and often controversial part of the commemoration of past wars. In order to better grasp their importance for the way war endures below the surface of peace, this article stages an ethnographic encounter with a Namibian monument: Heroes’ Acre. The memorial embodies the official Namibian narrative on past wars by emphasizing a nationalist and quasi-religious symbolism, a framing that has been challenged by a number of writers pointing to the need for going beyond the state discourse. This article complements and complicates the way Heroes’ Acre appears in discourse by focusing on the interstices and absences at the site. By drawing upon my own visit to the monument as well as theoretical engagements, most notably Georgio Agamben’s discussion of ‘the empty throne’, I read Heroes’ Acre as a place where political power functions through emptiness, as it allows the future of war to endure in the present. Engaging particularly with the empty graveyard at the site, I argue that its emptiness needs to be understood as a guarantee for war – not in case it occurs – but as a ready-made symbol of glory, always virtually there, waiting to be fulfilled.

    Forget Clausewitz2014In: The International Journal of Baudrillard Studies, ISSN 1705-6411, E-ISSN 1705-6411, Vol. 11, no 2Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The modern study of war originates in many ways in Carl von Clausewitz classic On War. One of Clausewitz most influential positions is the idea that war is political, summed up in the statement that ‘war is the continuation of politics by other means.’ Traditional approaches to war often draw on this idea to outline how tactics and operations work as means to strategic and political ends. Critical approaches on the other hand, have instead invoked Michel Foucault’s idea that ‘politics is the continuation of war by other means,’ enabling an understanding for how politics relate to a struggle of life and death. This paper outlines a critique of both ideas by drawing on Jean Baudrillard’s discussion of the Gulf-war. It argues that taking the link between war and politics for granted produces a reality which in many ways reflects and reifies war as a mode of politics, or politics as a mode of war. The text ends by arguing that if we are to think war seriously and critically we need to think it beyond politics, and a starting point to do so is to forget Clausewitz.
