Open media and transitioning societies in the Arab Middle East : implications for US security policy by Stanley Foundation( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increased presence and growth of Middle Eastern media, particularly satellite television, raises pertinent questions about the nature and influence of this information explosion. For US decision makers, the most pressing question is how the realities of expanding open media sources and transitioning societies affect issues such as the US presence in the region, regional stability and growth, democratization, and transnational terrorism. The complexity of the Middle East media landscape needs to be better understood by US policymakers if more productive security policies and solutions are to be developed. This encompasses the growing sophistication of the media outlets and audiences; how new Middle East media compares and contrasts with US media norms and trends; and what, if any, impact the media revolution has on the region's social, economic, and political realms. In an effort to assist US policymakers and inform US expert and academic communities about the realities of expanding open media in the Middle East, the Stanley Foundation, in association with the Institute for Near East & Gulf Military Analysis (INEGMA) and the CNA Corporation (CNAC), brought together key media and policy elites from the Middle East, the United States, and the United Kingdom to discuss the implications of this Middle East media transformation. The discussions took place at an initial roundtable in Dubai in December 2005 and at a subsequent workshop in Washington, DC, in February 2006. This report summarizes the main trends, challenges, and recommendations for US policy derived from these discussions

Bridging the foreign policy divide : a project of the Stanley Foundation by Derek H Chollet( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide is an outgrowth of a Stanley Foundation initiative bringing together foreign policy and national security specialists from across the political spectrum to find common ground on ten key, controversial areas of policy. For each topic, a conservative and a progressive expert, some of the leading thinkers of their generation, jointly author a chapter outlining their points of agreement on such subjects as the use of force, democracy promotion, countering terrorism, detainee treatment, China, and national defense. As in the wider political arena, two-dimensional images of progressive and conservative views on national security are major obstacles to the search for new ideas and solutions. In Bridging the Foreign Policy Divide, leading analysts will help build a more constructive debate by looking past philosophical differences and identifying effective approaches to the major national security challenges confronting the United States. The project givesexperts an opportunity to examine politically sensitive issues on the merits and resist the distortions and oversimplifications of today's polarizing environment
Radio man : the remarkable rise and fall of C.O. Stanley by Mark Frankland( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The names of CO. Stanley and Pye were associated with some of the most dramatic applications of modern electronics in the post-war years. Pye pioneered radio telephones, equipping Britain's first fleet of radio cabs and bringing mobile phones to the police. Sir John Hunt took Pye radios with him to Mount Everest (though not quite to the summit). By the time of the crisis in 1966 Pye was the world's leading exporter of mobile radio phones. The company led the way in instrument landing systems for airports. It produced Britain's first transistor radio. In the 1950s it exported television cameras round the world, even selling them to the United States. A Pye camera was used to make the first picture guided deep-sea recovery when a Comet, the pride of Britain's civil aviation in the 1960s, crashed in the Mediterranean. Television made both boss and company rich. It provided Pye's greatest profits, above all in the ten years after the war when it manufactured the highest quality television sets on the market. And yet, if the company's new management were to be believed, television brought C.O. Stanley low. They published figures showing losses, chiefly on the television side, totalling millions of pounds. The bulk of this was the result of overproduction of television sets that cost too much and were of variable quality. A late attempt to break into the important TV rental market made a bad situation worse. The more one studied the reports of the events of 1966 the more obvious it seemed that the explanation was less likely to be found in the accountants' reports and balance sheets than in the years that went before. That was where the story had to be buried; the end already being written in the beginning, final failure the undeniable child of earlier success. C.O. Stanley was indeed a 'family man', and it was his family that held the first clues to his remarkable rise and fall
