What we owe Iraq : war and the ethics of nation building by Noah Feldman( )

28 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Danish and held by 2,877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noah Feldman argues that to prevent nation building from turning into a paternalistic, colonialist charade, we urgently need a new, humbler approach. Nation builders should focus on providing security, without arrogantly claiming any special expertise in how successful nation-states should be made. Drawing on his personal experiences in Iraq as a constitutional adviser, Feldman offers enduring insights into the power dynamics between the American occupiers and the Iraqis, and tackles issues such as Iraqi elections, the prospect of successful democratization, and the way home."--Jacket

The fall and rise of the Islamic state by Noah Feldman( Book )

27 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Noah Feldman tells the story behind the increasingly popular call for the establishment of the shari'a - the law of the traditional Islamic state - in the modern Muslim world." "Western powers call it a threat to democracy. Islamist movements are winning elections on it. Terrorists use it to justify their crimes. What, then, is the shari'a? Given the severity of some of its provisions, why is it popular among Muslims? Can the Islamic state succeed - should it? Feldman reveals how the classical Islamic constitution governed through and was legitimated by law. He shows how executive power was balanced by the scholars who interpreted and administered the shari'a, and how this balance of power was finally destroyed by the tragically incomplete reforms of the modern era. The result has been the unchecked executive dominance that now distorts politics in so many Muslim states. Feldman argues that a modern Islamic state could provide political and legal justice to today's Muslims, but only if new institutions emerge that restore this constitutional balance of power."--Jacket

After Jihad : America and the struggle for Islamic democracy by Noah Feldman( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A lucid and compelling case for a new American stance toward the Islamic world. What comes after jihad? Outside the headlines, believing Muslims are increasingly calling for democratic politics in their undemocratic countries. But can Islam and democracy successfully be combined? Surveying the intellectual and geopolitical terrain of the contemporary Muslim world, Noah Feldman proposes that Islamic democracy is indeed viable and desirable, and that the West, particularly the United States, should work to bring it about, not suppress it. Encouraging democracy among Muslims threatens America's autocratic Muslim allies, and raises the specter of a new security threat to the West if fundamentalists are elected. But in the long term, the greater threat lies in continuing to support repressive regimes that have lost the confidence of their citizens. By siding with Islamic democrats rather than the regimes that repress them, the United States can bind them to the democratic principles they say they support, reducing anti-Americanism and promoting a durable peace in the Middle East. After Jihad gives the context for understanding how the many Muslims who reject religious violence see the world after the globalization of democracy
The three lives of James Madison : genius, partisan, president by Noah Feldman( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2020 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of his life, James Madison changed the United States three times: First, he designed the Constitution, led the struggle for its adoption and ratification, then drafted the Bill of Rights. As an older, cannier politician he co-founded the original Republican party, setting the course of American political partisanship. Finally, having pioneered a foreign policy based on economic sanctions, he took the United States into a high-risk conflict, becoming the first wartime president and, despite the odds, winning. In The Three Lives of James Madison, Noah Feldman offers an intriguing portrait of this elusive genius and the constitutional republic he created--and how both evolved to meet unforeseen challenges."--Dust jacket

TEDTalks : Noah Feldman - Politics and Religion Are Technologies( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Islam becomes a more powerful cultural force throughout the world, Noah Feldman studies the intersection of religion, politics, and law--with a focus on how Islam meshes with modern democracy. A law professor at Harvard and a contributing editor at the New York Times Magazine, Feldman wrote a piece about how Shariah law might be made to work within the British court system. But he's never less than fearlessly honest--as in another piece for the Times Magazine, where he exposes a troubling strain of anti-Muslim sentiment, both outspoken and implied, in modern Europe. In this engaging TEDTalk, Feldman makes a searing case that both politics and religion--whatever their differences--are similar technologies, designed to efficiently connect and manage any group of people.

The Three lives of James Madison : Genius, Partisan, President by Noah Feldman( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sweeping reexamination of the Founding Father who transformed the United States in each of his political "lives"--as a revolutionary thinker, as a partisan political strategist, and as a president Over the course of his life, James Madison changed the United States three times: First, he designed the Constitution, led the struggle for its adoption and ratification, then drafted the Bill of Rights. As an older, cannier politician he co-founded the original Republican party, setting the course of American political partisanship. Finally, having pioneered a foreign policy based on economic sanctions, he took the United States into a high-risk conflict, becoming the first wartime president and, despite the odds, winning. In The Three Lives of James Madison, Noah Feldman offers an intriguing portrait of this elusive genius and the constitutional republic he created--and how both evolved to meet unforeseen challenges. Madison hoped to eradicate partisanship yet found himself giving voice to, and institutionalizing, the political divide. Madison's lifelong loyalty to Thomas Jefferson led to an irrevocable break with George Washington, hero of the American Revolution. Madison closely collaborated with Alexander Hamilton on the Federalist papers--yet their different visions for the United States left them enemies. Alliances defined Madison, too. The vivacious Dolley Madison used her social and political talents to win her husband new supporters in Washington--and define the diplomatic customs of the capital's society. Madison's relationship with James Monroe, a mixture of friendship and rivalry, shaped his presidency and the outcome of the War of 1812. We may be more familiar with other Founding Fathers, but the United States today is in many ways Madisonian in nature. Madison predicted that foreign threats would justify the curtailment of civil liberties. He feared economic inequality and the power of financial markets over politics, believing that government by the people demanded resistance to wealth. Madison was the first Founding Father to recognize the importance of public opinion, and the first to understand that the media could function as a safeguard to liberty. The Three Lives of James Madison is an illuminating biography of the man whose creativity and tenacity gave us America's distinctive form of government. His collaborations, struggles, and contradictions define the United States to this day.Jacket illustration adapted from a 1792 portrait of James Madison by Charles Willson Peale (Gilcrease Museum, Tulsa, Okla.)Advance praise for The Three Lives of James Madison"Noah Feldman brings a scholarly rigor and a gift for narrative to this impressive account of the sprawling--and often perplexing--life of James Madison. Understanding America requires understanding this often-overlooked Founder and his long, eventful life in the arena. We are fortunate indeed that Feldman has given us such a thoughtful examination of Madison's mind and its still-unfolding role in the story of the nation."--Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power"James Madison is famously known as the 'Father' of the American Constitution. With great insight, conveyed in elegant and commanding prose, Noah Feldman gives us a rich portrait of our fourth president in all his many aspects: constitution maker, politician, partisan, friend, slaveholder, husband, president, and elder statesmen. The result is a fresh, bold, and much-needed look at a pivotal figure in American and, therefore, world history."--Annette Gordon-Reed

The Arab Winter : A Tragedy by Noah Feldman( )

4 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Suddenly and unpredictably, non-violent mass demonstrations and protests erupted throughout the Arabic-speaking world in the spring of 2011, as large numbers of ordinary Arabs sought to take their political fate into their own hands and shape a better future for themselves. The optimism of their aspirations and the bravery of their efforts met with sympathy and excitement around the globe. For the first time, people in countries across North Africa and the Middle East were acting on their own, wresting control away from repressive governments and the great international powers that had long supported them. Yet as we all know, the electrifying events that began in Tunisia and that swept through Egypt, Syria, Iraq and elsewhere ultimately led to something much darker - except perhaps in the place where they began. Many long-time observers of the Middle East have arrived at a consensus about what happened to the Arab spring: it was doomed to fail. The Arab world, we are told, was unready for regime change in the direction of democracy. There is some variance among the purveyors of this consensus: some attribute the predestined failure and resulting horrors to a shared - and flawed - Arab political culture; others are inclined to blame Islam; and still others point the finger at the continued interference in the region of outside imperial powers (in particular, the United States). The purpose of Noah Feldman's new book is to rescue the Arab spring from the narrative of predestined failure. Feldman readily admits that in many ways the Arab spring ultimately made most people's lives worse than they were before. The ratio of success in the aftermath of the spring 2011 events has been atrocious. Yet it has not been zero. And even where these events took a turn for the horrifically worse, those outcomes were not inevitable. In place of the narrative of inevitability, Feldman tells a different story of the arc from spring to winter. His short book - ca 50,000 words - contains five chapters. In a first introductory chapter he analyzes the basic demands made by the Arab spring protesters (who were the people who took to the streets, what did they want, who was supposed to perform the overthrow of "the regime", and what was meant to replace it?). His main claim is that across the region demands for change were vague and general, not specific and concrete, and that - surprisingly - democracy went unmentioned. The result of this vagueness was an implicit invitation to military takeover. In chapter two, Feldman turns to Egypt and examines both key moments in the Egyptian drama: the January 2011 demonstrations in Tahrir Square in Cairo that led to the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak, and the June 2013 demonstrations in that same Square that encouraged the military to overthrow the recently-elected President and Muslim Brotherhood head, Mohamed Morsi. Feldman is of the view that the people took matters into their hands in both moments - in the first instance to remove a dictator, and in the second instance - sadly - to repudiate the country's nascent constitutional democracy. Chapter three moves to Syria and considers the thorny question of who was responsible for the disastrous civil war that followed the Arab spring there. Feldman's controversial argument is that responsibility lies not with the U.S. or other past imperial powers but with Syrians themselves. Chapter four addresses the Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL), claiming that although it was a dystopian political phenomenon when viewed from the outside it is best understood as a utopian, revolutionary movement that attained success locally and globally because it reflected its members' aspiration ot self-determining political action. In this way the Islamic State belongs squarely to the Arab spring moment. Lastly, in chapter five, Feldman describes the extraordinary success of Tunisia, the country where the Arab spring began. Tunisia, he claims, succeeded because its people and its leadership took political responsibility for the consequences of their actions, rather than seeking help from outside or hoping for internal forces to save them from themselves. The consequence was the compromise-driven creation of an original form of government: Islamic liberal democracy"--

"Perhaps the most pressing question facing the US today is, what is our relationship with the Islamic world going to be? Can we work together to harmonize our traditions and values, or are we destined for a "clash of civilizations" as some pundits have predicted? This thoughtful and thought-provoking discussion by two of America's leading scholars on Islam and the West attempts to answer this question with an emphasis on hope and the belief that the power to avert disaster lies with each one of us."--Container

Cool war : Stati Uniti e Cina : il futuro della competizione globale by Noah Feldman( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bold and thought-provoking look at the future of U.S.-China relations, and how their coming power struggle will reshape the competitive playing field for nations around the world The Cold War seemingly ended in a decisive victory for the West. But now, Noah Feldman argues, we are entering an era of renewed global struggle: the era of Cool War. Just as the Cold War matched the planet's reigning superpowers in a contest for geopolitical supremacy, so this new age will pit the United States against a rising China in a contest for dominance, alliances, and resources. Already visible in Asia, the conflict will extend to the Middle East (U.S.-backed Israel versus Chinese-backed Iran), Africa, and beyond. Yet this Cool War differs fundamentally from the zero-sum showdowns of the past: The world's major power and its leading challenger are economically interdependent to an unprecedented degree. Exports to the U.S. account for nearly a quarter of Chinese trade, while the Chinese government holds 8 percent of America's outstanding debt. This positive-sum interdependence has profound implications for nations, corporations, and international institutions. It makes what looked to be a classic contest between two great powers into something much more complex, contradictory, and badly in need of the shrewd and carefully reasoned analysis that Feldman provides. To understand the looming competition with China, we must understand the incentives that drive Chinese policy. Feldman offers an arresting take on that country's secretive hierarchy, proposing that the hereditary "princelings" who reap the benefits of the complicated Chinese political system are actually in partnership with the meritocrats who keep the system full of fresh talent and the reformers who are trying to root out corruption and foster government accountability. He provides a clear-eyed analysis of the years ahead, showing how China's rise presents opportunities as well as risks. Robust competition could make the U.S. leaner, smarter, and more pragmatic, and could drive China to greater respect for human rights. Alternatively, disputes over trade, territory, or human rights could jeopardize the global economic equilibrium?or provoke a catastrophic "hot war" that neither country wants. The U.S. and China may be divided by political culture and belief, but they are also bound together by mutual self-interest. Cool War makes the case for competitive cooperation as the only way forward that can preserve the peace and make winners out of both sides. Praise for Cool War "A timely book ... sharp, logical and cool."? The Economist "Noah Feldman's dissection of the United States?China relationship is smart, balanced, and wise."?Robert D. Kaplan, New York Times bestselling author of The Revenge of Geography "Compelling ... Feldman's book carries enough insight to warrant serious attention from anyone interested in what may well be the defining relationship in global affairs for decades to come."? Kirkus Reviews "A worthwhile and intriguing read."?The Washington Post "Masterfully elucidates China's non-democratic/non-communist new form of government."?
