Second chance : three presidents and the crisis of American superpower by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A story of wasted opportunity and squandered prestige: a critique of the last three U.S. presidents' foreign policy. Distinguished commentator on foreign policy, former National Security Adviser Brzezinski, offers a reasoned but unsparing assessment of the last three presidential administrations' foreign policy. Though spanning less than two decades, these administrations cover a vitally important turning point in world history: the period in which the United States, having emerged from the Cold War with unprecedented power and prestige, managed to squander both in a remarkably short time. This is a tale of decline: from the competent but conventional thinking of the first Bush administration, to the well-intentioned self-indulgence of the Clinton administration, to the mortgaging of America's future by the "suicidal statecraft" of the second Bush administration. Brzezinski concludes with a chapter on how America can regain its lost prestige. This scholarly yet highly opinionated book is sure to be both controversial and influential.--From publisher description
Strategic vision : America and the crisis of global power by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1991, the United States was the only global superpower. It seemed that the 21st century, like the 20th, would belong to America. Then came the stock market bubble, the costly foreign unilateralism of the younger Bush presidency, and the financial catastrophe of 2008. Meanwhile, China was rising and the Middle East was awakening politically. Today it is clear that America is vulnerable--to domestic and international decline and unregulated greed. Speaking from decades of experience, Brzezinski considers the implications of the changing distribution of global power, ponders why America's global appeal is waning, speculates on the likely geopolitical consequences if America declines by 2025 (will China assume America's central role in world affairs?), and describes a vision of a resurgent America: responsive to challenges, strategically deliberate, and historically enlightened in its global engagement with the new East.--Publisher information

Out of control : global turmoil on the eve of the twenty-first century by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rarely has there been a book as explosive and challenging as this brilliant analysis of today's massive geopolitical disorder. The triumphant collapse of communism has brought neither economic stability nor social democracy to the former Soviet Union. Nor, for that matter, to the rest of the world. We are living in a time of fragmentation: increasing disunity in Europe, dangerous eruptions in the Islamic republics, growing disparity between the world's rich and poor, and the evils of the "permissive cornucopia" in America which, through overstimulation of material desires and sensual self-gratification, is leading to the collapse of Western moral and spiritual values. In short, we are living in a philosophical climate that is "out of control." It is Zbigniew Brzezinski's firm belief that we must draw both moral and political lessons from the "megadeaths" of the twentieth century, a century in which at least 167 million people were slaughtered in the name of the "politics of organized insanity," or the "metamyths" of such dictators as Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, among others. Unless we can practice selfrestraint derived from a moral commitment in the quest for global democratic "interdependence," we stand destined to risk again our very own survival

America and the world : conversations on the future of American foreign policy by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The status of the United States as a world power, and the nature of power itself, are at a historic turning point, a time when the nation's decisions could determine how long it remains a superpower. It is essential that we understand and adapt to the new security environment in which we find ourselves. Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, both former National Security Advisors under markedly different administrations, dissect, in moderated conversations, the most significant foreign policy challenges facing the U.S.: the Middle East, Russia, China, Europe, the developing world, the changing nature of power in a globalized world, and what Brzezinski has called the "global political awakening." While one author is a Republican and the other a Democrat, they broadly agree on the need to adapt to a new international environment. Where they disagree, their exchanges are always both deeply informed and provocative.--From publisher description
The grand chessboard : American primacy and its geostrategic imperatives by Zbigniew Brzezinski( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heart of The Grand Chessboard is Brzezinski's analysis of the four critical regions of Eurasia and of the stakes for America in each arena - Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and East Asia. The crucial fault lines may seem familiar, but the implosion of the Soviet Union has created new rivalries and new relationships, and Brzezinski maps out the strategic ramifications of the new geopolitical realities

The man nobody knew( Visual )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 673 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As powerful and riveting as a John Le Carre thriller, The man nobody knew uncovers the hidden life of legendary CIA spymaster William Colby. The consummate American soldier-spy, Colby took on the government's dirtiest assignments without question - until the day he defied presidential orders and revealed to Congress the CIA's "family jewels" - their darkest, deepest secrets. Told by his son Carl Colby and featuring a who's who of the intelligence community, including former National Security Advisers Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense and Director of CIA James Schlesinger, as well Pulitzer Prize journalists Bob Woodward, Seymour Hersh and Tim Weiner, Colby's story unmasks the lies, myths, truths, sacrifices and casualities of a covert spy

Iran : time for a new approach : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

17 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past quarter century, relations between the United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran have been trapped by legacies of the past. The aftermath of the 1979 revolution transformed Iran from a staunch ally into one of the most intractable opponents of the United States in the region and beyond. Today, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have positioned American troops along Iran's borders, making the United States and Iran wary competitors and neighbors who nonetheless possess some overlapping interests. All of this is occurring against a backdrop of the problems posed by Iran's nuclear program and its involvement with terrorism. Clearly, contending with Iran will constitute one of the most complex and pressing challenges facing the next U.S. administration. The Council on Foreign Relations established this Independent Task Force to consider both Iran's domestic reality and its foreign policy and to examine ways the United States can foster a relationship with Iran that better protects and promotes American interests in a critical part of the world
