When Kirkpatrick died in December 2006, she had just completed this survey of American foreign policy in the post-Cold War age: a revisionist assessment of two decades of American interventions abroad--a troubled period of small successes, tragic failures, and important lessons for our future. Since the end of the Cold War, she argues, America's relationship with the world has been compromised by its mutual distrust with the United Nations, and by continuing uncertainty over U.S. involvement in conflicts among rogue nations overseas. She offers a chronicle of a period in which the United States has increasingly used force around the world--to mixed and often challenging results; illuminates the shift from the first Bush administration's ambitious vision of a New World Order to the overambitious nation-building efforts of the Clinton administration; explores where we have gone wrong; and raises lingering questions about what perils tomorrow might hold.--From publisher description

The withering away of the totalitarian state-- and other surprises by Jeane J Kirkpatrick( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these fascinating critiques on the dramatic developments set in motion by the perestroika revolution, the author analyzes the attempts to transform Soviet-style communism from within and their momentous consequences throughout the world. With her realistic understanding of Communist ideology and her broad personal experience with foreign leaders and foreign policy, the author offers unique insights into the impact of change not only in the USSR but also in Germany, Poland, and Hungary, as well as Nicaragua, Cuba, Angola, and other third world nations. Regional conflicts, summitry and arms control, and relations with between the United States and its allies are among the many topics discussed in this volume. -- from Back Cover
The new Presidential elite : men and women in national politics by Jeane J Kirkpatrick( Book )

11 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New Presidential Elite is the first large-scale study of convention delegates in two decades. It is based on interviews with 1,300 delegates to the 1972 Democratic and Republican National Conventions and mail questionnaires completed by some 55 percent of the delegates. It deals with the political backgrounds and experience, the attitudes and perceptions, and the orientations toward issues, candidates, parties, and male-female roles of a large number of active political participants of both sexes."--Publishers description

Legitimacy and force by Jeane J Kirkpatrick( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Legitimacy and Force, Volumes One and Two are the state papers of Jeane J. Kirkpatrick as the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations. The volumes feature all of the ambassador's UN and congressional testimonies, addresses, speeches and statements and a broad selection of speeches on international affairs and human rights. Together they present a lucid and comprehensive account of the position of one of America's most controversial UN representatives. Volume One is oriented around themes of democratic societies and undemocratic systems, human rights and political obligations. Kirkpatrick examines the nature and legitimacy of democracy and the illegitimate nature of undemocratic nations. She also offers poignant commentary on the presidential election of 1980 and what the "Reagan phenomenon" has meant to the United States and the West. Volume Two offers Kirkpatrick's formal remarks on nations and nation-building. She focuses on Grenada, Poland, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, and the Soviet Union. She provides a particularly trenchant analysis of Israel: the Camp David accords, the assault on Israel inside the United Nations, and on the Middle East in general. Essential reading for everyone interested in the policymaking arena, these volumes exemplify Kirkpatrick's articulate conceptual underpinning of present-day American foreign policy. These volumes, far from the usual government position papers, range widely and personally over the major international issues of our times. They are amplified in essays and articles written by Dr. Kirkpatrick for special occasions not related to specific UN work. In addition, the volumes contain crucial papers that were written after her resignation from the UN ambassadorship-and hence reflect Kirkpatrick's current interests and persuasions."--Provided by publisher

Values in an American Government textbook : three appraisals by Michael Novak( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These critiques of a high school American government textbook, "American Government in Action," (Resnik and Nerenberg, 1973) represent the first in a series of studies designed to assess the effectiveness of social science textbooks in communicating and reinforcing Western values. The critiques are followed by a response by the authors of the textbook. Three concerned critics with political ideas and public policy, but not connected with secondary education, reviewed and evaluated the text. The three critics agreed that although the text is thorough, clear, and simple, it is overly optimistic and it treats government uncritically. The chapter on crime is criticized either for painting too rosy a picture or for its discussion of "white collar" crime, for example, public utility price fixing. One critic states that the text is dull, intellectually sloppy, and fails to communicate the basic values of Western civilization. A second critic notes that the book reinforces a general faith in the responsiveness of government and shows sensitivity to the delicateness of public choices. The authors of the criticized American government textbook respond that the critics should have been aware of the audience to whom the book was addressed. They note that students must be provided with readable and understandable concepts, that publishers must adhere to a middle of the road position, and that the book must be approved by textbook selection committees and by school boards. The authors believe that the wide sale of their text indicates that it is adaptable to all of these requirements. (Kc)
