America between the wars : from 11/9 to 9/11 : the misunderstood years between the fall of the Berlin Wall and the start of the War on Terror by Derek H Chollet( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Berlin Wall collapsed and the Cold War ended on November 9, 1989, the West declared victory: democracy and free markets had prevailed and the United States emerged as the triumphant superpower. The tension that had defined a generation was over, and it seemed that peace was at hand. The next twelve years rolled by in a haze of complacent self-congratulation--what some now call a "holiday from history." When September 11, 2001, set the U.S. on a new path, confused Americans asked: How did we get here? Foreign policy experts Chollet and Goldgeier examine how the decisions and debates of those years shaped the events, arguments, and politics of the world we live in today. This book tells the story of a generation of leaders grappling with a moment of dramatic transformation--changing how we should think about the recent past, and uncovering important lessons for the future.--From publisher description

The unquiet American : Richard Holbrooke in the world by Derek H Chollet( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely regarded to possess one of the most penetrating minds of any modern diplomat of any nation, Holbrooke was also well known for his outsized personality, and his capacity to charm and offend in equally colossal measures.

The road to the Dayton accords : a study of American statecraft by Derek H Chollet( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Derek Chollet provides insights into the high-stakes diplomacy behind the historic 1995 Dayton agreement that ended the war in Bosnia - the most devastating conflict in Europe since the Second World War. Based on still unopened U.S. government archives and hours of interviews, The Road to the Dayton Accords is a fast-paced history that focuses on the key players, decisions, and events on the difficult journey to peace, taking the reader from the killing fields of the Balkans, to tense meetings in the Oval Office, to dramatic negotiations on a secluded Air Force base in Dayton, Ohio."--Jacket
The long game : how Obama defied Washington and redefined America's role in the world by Derek H Chollet( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this inside assessment of Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy, Derek Chollet tackles the prevailing consensus to argue that Obama has profoundly altered the course of American foreign policy for the better and positioned the United States to lead in the future. The Long Game combines a deep sense of history with new details and compelling insights into how the Obama administration approached the most difficult global challenges. With the unique perspective of having served at the three national-security power centers during the Obama years--the White House, State Department, and Pentagon--Chollet takes readers behind the scenes of the intense struggles over the most consequential issues: the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the meltdown of Syria and rise of ISIS, the Ukraine crisis and a belligerent Russia, the conflict in Libya, the tangle with Iran, the turbulent relationship with Israel, and the rise of new powers like China. An unflinching, fast-paced account of US foreign policy, The Long Game reveals how Obama has defied the Washington establishment to redefine America's role in the world, offering important lessons for the next president."--Jacket
The Search for Social Entrepreneurship( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on social entrepreneurship is finally catching up to its rapidly growing potential. In The Search for Social Entrepreneurship, Paul Light explores this surge of interest to establish the state of knowledge on this growing phenomenon and suggest directions for future research. Light begins by outlining the debate on how to define social entrepreneurship, a concept often cited and lauded but not necessarily understood. A very elemental definition would note that it involves individuals, groups, networks, or organizations seeking sustainable change via new ideas on how governments, nonpr
Foreign policy decision-making revisited by Richard C Snyder( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work has helped shape the field of international relations and especially influenced scholars interested in how foreign policy is made. At a time when conventional wisdom and traditional approaches are being questioned, and when there is increased interest in the importance of process, the insights of Snyder, Bruck and Sapin have continuing and increased relevance. Prescient in its focus on the effects on foreign policy of individuals and their preconceptions, organizations and their procedures, and cultures and their values, Foreign Policy Decision-Making is of continued relevance for anyone seeking to understand the ways foreign policy is made. Their seminal framework is here complemented by two new chapters examining its influence on generations of scholars, the current state of the field, and areas for future research.--Publisher description
Bridging the foreign policy divide : a project of the Stanley Foundation by Derek H Chollet( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide is an outgrowth of a Stanley Foundation initiative bringing together foreign policy and national security specialists from across the political spectrum to find common ground on ten key, controversial areas of policy. For each topic, a conservative and a progressive expert, some of the leading thinkers of their generation, jointly author a chapter outlining their points of agreement on such subjects as the use of force, democracy promotion, countering terrorism, detainee treatment, China, and national defense. As in the wider political arena, two-dimensional images of progressive and conservative views on national security are major obstacles to the search for new ideas and solutions. In Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide, leading analysts will help build a more constructive debate by looking past philosophical differences and identifying effective approaches to the major national security challenges confronting the United States. The project givesexperts an opportunity to examine politically sensitive issues on the merits and resist the distortions and oversimplifications of today's polarizing environment

National priorities for the NATO Warsaw summit by Bruno Lété( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Just two weeks after the U.K. shocked its partners with a vote to leave the EU, members of the other key Western alliance will meet in Warsaw, on July 8-9. The shadow of Brexit now adds to the already challenging agenda. How will the UK define its new role, and what will Brexit mean for London's defense posture and budget? What is in store for the European Union and EU-NATO cooperation? In this collection, experts from GMF offices in seven of NATO's capitals -- Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Warsaw, Bucharest, Ankara, and Washington, DC -- report on their governments' agendas. While all members agree that unity and solidarity are even more critical for the alliance after the Brexit vote, the Summit's agenda is broad and the Allies' priorities diverse. The Summit looks set to meet the central challenge of keeping the East and South of NATO on board, with a balance that increases capabilities in both arenas. As the first meeting of the transatlantic community after Brexit, the summit is a key opportunity to reaffirm Western unity, confirm Britain's partnership and engagement, and to step up NATO-EU cooperation
