The imperial temptation : the new world order and America's purpose by Robert W Tucker( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With communism in retreat following the sudden end of the cold war, America's brand of democracy appeared triumphant around the world. Yet, paradoxically, the United States was left floundering for a new global agenda. In this critical analysis of American foreign policy priorities, Robert W. Tucker and David C. Hendrickson argue that the Bush administration, in its attempts to address the challenges posed by the new global realities, has betrayed the fundamental ideals on which this country was founded. Taking the gulf war as their starting point, Tucker and Hendrickson dissect President Bush's vision of a new world order, exposing its inconsistency with America's traditional diplomatic principles. They criticize Bush's all-out military assault on Iraq as a disproportionate and inhumane response to the crisis. By using force to resolve the gulf crisis when other means were available--for example, a policy of "punitive containment"--And then walking away from the ruin created by the war, Bush succumbed to an "imperial temptation" that has seduced and corrupted other great powers in the past. Tucker and Hendrickson make a compelling argument that U.S. foreign policy should return to the guiding principles set forth by the Founding Fathers. They maintain that these principles offer a far better guide for dealing with the perils and opportunities facing America today than Bush's foreign policy agenda. They believe that the nation has developed an attitude toward the use of force that is both unnecessary and irresponsible, and they advocate a foreign policy for the coming generations that would protect America's vital interests while remaining faithful to the nation's traditional ideals. The Imperial Temptation makes an important--and what is sure to be viewed as controversial--contribution to the national debate over the future of U.S. foreign policy and offers a revealing examination of the classic ideas underlying American diplomacy and their relation to the nation's historic purpose

9 editions published in 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nærværende essay, skrevet i slutningen af 1980, bygger på foredrag og artikler i "Foreign Affairs". Der udtrykkes den opfattelse, at amerikansk magt er smuldret gennem 1970'erne og dermed mulighederne for indflydelse på udenrigspolitiske områder. Modsvarende er Sovjets tiltagende militære opbygning i 1970'erne blevet benyttet til udbygning af Sovjets greb om området ved den Persiske Golf

8 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arguing that our neglect of the prewar period has reduced the complexity of the historical Wilson to a caricature or stereotype, Tucker reveals the importance that the law of neutrality played in Wilson's foreign policy during the fateful years from 1914 to 1917, and in doing so he provides a more complete portrait of our nation's twenty-eighth president."--Jacket

Revisions in need of revising : what went wrong in the Iraq war by David C Hendrickson( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though critics have made a number of telling points against the Bush administration's conduct of the Iraq war, the most serious problems facing Iraq and its American occupiers--criminal anarchy and lawlessness, a raging insurgency and a society divided into rival and antagonistic groups--were virtually inevitable consequences that flowed from the act of war itself. Military and civilian planners were culpable in failing to plan for certain tasks, but the most serious problems had no good solution. Even so, there are lessons to be learned. These include the danger that the imperatives of "force protection" may sacrifice the broader political mission of U.S. forces and the need for skepticism over the capacity of outsiders to develop the skill and expertise required to reconstruct decapitated states
Empire of liberty : the statecraft of Thomas Jefferson by Robert W Tucker( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empire of Liberty takes a new look at the public life, thought, and ambiguous legacy of one of America's most revered statesmen, offering new insight into the meaning of Jefferson in the American experience. This work examines Jefferson's legacy for American foreign policy in the light of several critical themes which continue to be highly significant today: the struggle between isolationists and interventionists, the historic ambivalence over the nation's role as a crusader for liberty, and the relationship between democracy and peace. Written by two distinguished scholars, this book provides
