Reykjavik revisited : steps toward a world free of nuclear weapons : complete report of the 2007 Hoover Institution conference by George Pratt Shultz( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in Reykjavik Revisited essentially address three topics. They address specific actions to reduce and redeploy nuclear weapons en route to zero and key challenges to implementing them. The second concern addressed is preventing the proliferation of new nuclear weapons capabilities and the growth of new dangers, while at the same time the number of weapons is being reduced. The third category, a diplomatic offensive, addresses the diplomatic challenge to turn the effort of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons into a joint international effort at the highest levels of government. The appendixes include the conference agenda, a list of participants, and the articles that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on January 4, 2007, "A World Free of Nuclear Weapons" and on January 15, 2008, "Toward a Nuclear-Free World.""--Jacket

"Drawing on their experience as government insiders, George P. Shultz and Kenneth W. Dam explain how economic policy is shaped at the highest levels of government. They reveal the connections between economic, social, and international policy. A new chapter, "A Changed World," explores how our increasingly global economy influences economic strategy. With candor, authority, and breadth of vision, Shultz and Dam have produced a brilliant introduction to economic policy, its principles, and its practice."--Jacket
The nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactors by Sidney D Drell( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear energy can provide great benefits to society; in the form of nuclear weapons, however, it can cause death and destruction on an unparalleled scale. The challenge is how to deal with the catastrophic risk of the nuclear enterprise so as to preserve its positive elements and make economic sense. In this book, an expert group of contributors attempts to answer two key questions facing the nuclear enterprise: (1) What can and should be done to improve operations and public understanding of the risks and consequences of major incidents? (2) How can informed scientists, economists, and journalists interact more effectively in understanding and reporting to the public on the most important issues affecting risks, consequences, and costs? Drawn from a conference held at Stanford University's Hoover Institution on October 3-4, 2011, the papers presented in The Nuclear Enterprise were prepared by specialists on various aspects of this challenging topic, including technical safety, management operations, regulatory measures, and the importance of accurate communication by the media. It is their hope that the findings of the conference will contribute to discussion and then actions to better contain and eliminate growing global dangers

Taking on Iran : strength, diplomacy, and the Iranian threat by Abraham D Sofaer( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham D. Sofaer argues that US policy toward Iran cannot safely be restricted to a strategy that considers only the two high-risk, costly, and potentially infeasible options of a preventive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities or containing a nuclear-armed Iran. Instead, the United States should respond forcefully to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aggression, enhancing its credibility and increasing the likelihood that Iran will negotiate in earnest. The United States must also be prepared to engage Iran in a disciplined manner, avoiding disabling preconditions and adopting the negotiating practices used successfully by the United States when dealing with the Soviet Union during the 1980s
Implications of the Reykjavik summit on its twentieth anniversary : conference report by Sidney D Drell( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexandra Andreevna Voronine and her mother lived in Kharkov alone, destitute, and fearing for their lives because of World War I, revolution, civil war, and famine. When Alexandra went to work in 1921 at the office that was coordinating Russian and foreign famine relief, she met Captain Vidkun Quisling, Fridtjof Nansen's representative in the Ukraine. In 1922, at the age of seventeen, she married the man whose name became synonymous with traitor during World War II and accompanied him to Oslo." "Abandoned in Paris within a year, penniless and unaware of being a pawn in a game of international intrigue, Alexandra remained under Quisling's strict control for several more years. When her tumultuous life eventually took her to China, she married W. George Yourieff, who supported her efforts to recall and analyze her years as Quisling's wife. A further tide of events saw the Yourieffs settled in California, and in 1980 they began a collaboration with the Norwegian-born historian and novelist Kirsten A. Seaver. The archives Seaver consulted in London and Oslo and at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University confirmed Alexandra's intensely personal, episodic recollections about an extraordinary life and provided the necessary connective tissue. They also revealed to Alexandra at long last the brutal story behind her lost years."--Jacket
Track two diplomacy in theory and practice by Peter L Jones( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Track Two diplomacy consists of informal dialogues among influential people, who are usually not officials, which are intended to develop new ideas and new relationships which can assist the process of resolving conflicts. Sadly, those involved in official diplomacy and many track Two practitioners are often unaware of the realities and pressures of one another's worlds. And those interested in the academic study of Track two sometimes fail to understand the challenges faced by either set of practitioners. This book bridges the divides between these constituencies to provide a comprehensive picture of the range of activities pursued in Track two initiatives and to provoke new thinking about how these activities relate to each other, to official diplomacy, and to academe. -- Back cover

Communicating with the world of Islam by A. Ross Johnson( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Communicating with the World of Islam draws from the lessons learned in the cold war broadcasting experience to suggest the best ways of organizing U.S. efforts to communicate with Islamic people around the globe." "Drawn from discussions at the seminar "Communicating with the Islamic World," this report examines the impact that Voice of America, Radio Liberty, the BBC, Radio Free Europe, and other broadcasting tools had and suggests how the United States can use these instruments today to counter extremism effectively, promote democracy, and improve understanding of the United States in the Islamic world. It details current broadcasting efforts into Islamic countries and the Muslim communities of Europe and explains each of the critical factors necessary to influence the world of Islam in a positive direction, such as stressing women's content programming, maintaining pressure on the rulers of Qatar over the content and programming of Al Jazeera, and keeping news content candid, tailored to local audiences, and unsparingly accurate."--Jacket
Nuclear security : the problems and the road ahead by George Pratt Shultz( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Concern about the threat posed by nuclear weapons has preoccupied the United States and presidents of the United States since the beginning of the nuclear era. Nuclear Security draws from papers presented at the 2013 meeting of the American Nuclear Society examining worldwide efforts to control nuclear weapons and ensure the safety of the nuclear enterprise of weapons and reactors against catastrophic accidents. The distinguished contributors, all known for their long-standing interest in getting better control of the threats posed by nuclear weapons and reactors, discuss what we can learn from past successes and failures and attempt to identify the key ingredients for a road ahead that can lead us toward a world free of nuclear weapons. The authors review historical efforts to deal with the challenge of nuclear weapons, with a focus on the momentous arms control negotiations between President Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. They offer specific recommendations for reducing risks that should be adopted by the nuclear enterprise, both military and civilian, in the United States and abroad. Since the risks posed by the nuclear enterprise are so high, they conclude, no reasonable effort should be spared to ensure safety and security"--Back cover
