Essays on leadership by Boutros Boutros-Ghali( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict invited five world leaders, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, George Bush, Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Desmond Tutu, to consider leadership and preventing deadly conflict. Each offers a different perspective, yet all conclude that an individual leader's choices are crucial to creating the conditions that enhance or undermine peace. This volume highlights the capacities of international leaders. These leaders can help mobilize great financial or military resources, build international coalitions, and create a constituency for prevention. The Commission believes that prevention should be on the agenda of every head of state and government meeting and all foreign and defense ministerial gatherings. The international community should champion and reward good governance, especially in countries struggling towards greater democracy. International leaders can call attention to the problem of intergroup violence and tap into latent public inclination toward prevention. They have the scope to explain the need for prevention. They can help build the political will necessary to mount an effective response to complex emergencies and to help people prevent violence before it erupts. Addressing this point in his essay, former United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali highlights the need for vision, communication, and cooperation
Today's children : creating a future for a generation in crisis by David A Hamburg( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our children are a nation at risk. Poverty, drug and alcohol abuse, poor health, illiteracy, racial prejudice, and the eruption of unprecedented levels of violence both in the inner cities and across the country give us ample reason to worry about the present state of our nation and society. Yet while today's problems carry severe consequences for ourselves, they are immeasurably graver for today's children. Though the risks to young Americans may never have been so great as they are today, at no other time in our history have we possessed so many of the tools essential for understanding what must be done and how to effect change. In Today's Children, David Hamburg, M.D., president of the Carnegie Corporation of New York and a nationally recognized authority on child development, provides a comprehensive overview of the crises our infants and adolescents face, and the decisions we must make to protect them. Today's Children is not a reactive prescription for treating only the symptoms of the failure to provide adequately for all our nation's young people. Instead, Dr. Hamburg isolates the causes, and looks at what is being done nationally to remedy our approach to child development. Beginning with an overview of the biological, social, and psychological heritage we all share as human beings, Dr. Hamburg explores the historical role of the family in child-raising. He analyzes how changes in the family structure and in social norms, including rising divorce rates, two-career families, teenage pregnancy, loneliness, dislocation, illiteracy, violence, and poor nutrition have resulted in what he calls an inadvertent tidal wave of child neglect. Dr. Hamburg's book surveys important recent research in child development, focusing on early childhood and early adolescence, the two most critical periods during which appropriate intervention can make a permanent difference in children's lives. It also looks closely at innovative programs which point in the most promising directions for improving young lives. Today's Children is, in the words of Jonas Salk, "a timely prophecy and a timely prescription that can start the healing process." Policymakers, social scientists, educators, and parents will find in Dr. Hamburg a wise and experienced spokesman for our children

No more killing fields : preventing deadly conflict by David A Hamburg( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David A. Hamburg--doctor, teacher, hostage negotiator, presidential advisor, and more--has seen a lot in his 77 years and has a message for the 21st century: An ounce of prevention is worth many pounds of cure when it comes to deadly international conflict. To explore how the model of preventive medicine may be practically applied to political violence, Hamburg created the Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict. This book is the capstone of the Commission's extensive efforts and covers situations as widely ranging as World War II's Holocaust, terrorist attacks in the U.S., and the War in Iraq.--Publisher

Preventing genocide : practical steps toward early detection and effective action by David A Hamburg( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. David Hamburg's book, Preventing Genocide: Practical Steps Toward Early Detection and Effective Action, approaches the problem of mass violence from three perspectives. It examines the root causes of genocide, using illustrative case histories from the nineteenth century to the present to identify recurrent patterns. A basic theme is that clear warnings always appear long before a genocide erupts and that there are practical ways to prevent its outbreak. It describes pillars of prevention: how human societies can develop strong, long-term potential for preventing mass violence of all kinds. It considers what various organizations and institutions can do to build and maintain the pillars of prevention. It concludes that focal points of knowledge and skill in prevention are essential to identify warning signals and to prepare and propose appropriate responses before a genocide begins."--Jacket

Give peace a chance : preventing mass violence by David A Hamburg( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Give Peace a Chance, the distinguished Dr. Hamburg teams up with his filmmaker son to tell the story of selected significant peace achievements over the past 25 years. Including lessons from personal experience, pithy quotes from interviews with international dignitaries, and the insights of a documentary sensibility, this book reflects upon striking moments in peace history and inflects them with the perspective of preventive medicine. From Jane Goodall's rainforest research station, to a hostage taking in Eastern Africa, to the Reagan-Gorbachev post-summit epiphany in Reykjavik, the Hamburgs take us there. They then distill the wisdom of these and many other encounters into an essential "six pillars of prevention"--Education, early action, democracy building, socioeconomic development, human rights, and arms control. These six pillars are essential not only to reflections upon the past, but to future prospects emerging from recent challenges to peace--the Arab Spring, the violent repression in Syria, and the brewing faceoff with Iran."--Publisher information

Preventing contemporary intergroup violence by David A Hamburg( Book )

4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this introductory essay to the Carnegie Corporation's 1993 report, David A. Hamburg urges nations, during this time of increased ethnic violence, to cooperate in developing effective international systems of nonviolent conflict resolution. Promoting genuinely free civil societies within a democratic framework will resolve the current epidemic of civil and intranational conflict. There should be mutual accommodation through nonviolent agreed secession, peaceful border revisions, and a respected, cultural pluralism. Solutions must satisfy the reasonable claims of most citizens and allow diverse groups to sort out their differences. Established democracies, the United Nations, organizations of the international community, and scientists must all work together with a sense of urgency to address these divisive ethnic conflicts. Countries should move away from a world model based on power balances and coercion toward one that is more complex and in which mutually beneficial political and economic relations are of growing importance. The paper lists specific ways that an international approach may prevent and resolve intergroup conflict and he lists the benefits such a plan would derive. The world of the next century will differ profoundly from any that has ever been known; everyone must work to achieve decent, fair, and peaceful relations among diverse groups. (Rjm)
