That used to be us : how America fell behind in the world it invented and how we can come back by Thomas L Friedman( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 3,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them. In this book the authors analyze those challenges, globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption, and spell out what needs to be done now to rediscover America's power and prowess. They explain how the end of the cold war blinded the nation to the need to address these issues seriously. They show how America's history, when properly understood, provides the key to coping successfully and explain how the paralysis of the U.S. political system and the erosion of key American values have made it impossible to carry out the policies the country needs. This work is both a searching exploration of the American condition today and a rousing manifesto for American renewal
The ideas that conquered the world : peace, democracy, and free markets in the twenty-first century by Michael Mandelbaum( Book )

35 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and Chinese and held by 1,369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing in the same tradition as Francis Fukuyama's </The End of History/>, political science professor (and senior fellow of the Council on Foreign Relations) Mandelbaum continues the argument that capitalism and democracy are inextricably linked and that so-called "free markets" have emerged as indisputably triumphant in the world of contesting political and economic ideas. In exploring the political affairs of the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Russia, and China, he advances two propositions about liberal democracies that may seem surprising to observers of the current international scene: that democracies tend to conduct peaceful foreign affairs and that free markets naturally lead to democracy. One of America's leading foreign policy thinkers offers a major new statement about global politics in the 21st century, and shows how prevailing trends are remarkably favorable to the United States and the nations of the West
The case for Goliath : how America acts as the world's government in the twenty-first century by Michael Mandelbaum( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How does the United States use its enormous power in the world? According to the author, the United States furnishes to other countries the services that governments provide within the countries they govern. He describes the contributions that American power makes to global security and prosperity, the shortcomings of American foreign policy, and how other countries have come to accept, resent, and exert influence on America's global role. And he assesses the prospects for the continuation of this role, which depends most importantly on whether the American public is willing to pay for it

Thomas L. Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum analyze globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption.

The fate of nations : the search for national security in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries by Michael Mandelbaum( Book )

25 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fate of Nations identifies and illustrates the basic varieties of security policy, as well as re-interpreting six well-documented historical episodes: Great Britain and the nineteenth century balance of power system; France between the two world wars; The United States during the Cold War; China from the Communist victory in 1949 to 1976; Israel from the founding of the state in 1948 to the peace treaty with Egypt in 1979; Japan and the international economic order after 1945. Professor Mandelbaum shows that, while no state is wholly restricted by its position in the international system, neither is any entirely free from external constraints. He concludes that in this century, national security policies have been more prudent, even when unsuccessful, than they often retrospectively have been judged

The dawn of peace in Europe by Michael Mandelbaum( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and German and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the end of the Cold War, Europe is more united and freer from the danger of a major war than at any time in modern history. A historically unprecedented and highly desirable European security order is in place. The Dawn of Peace in Europe describes this new "common security order," assesses the alternatives to it, and analyzes the conditions necessary for its continuation. The Dawn of Peace in Europe emphasizes the inescapable truth that the future of this new order depends on Russia and the United States. Mandelbaum assesses how the wrenching transition taking place within Russia might affect its policies toward the arms treaties and toward its neighbors. Finally, he evaluates the durability of the American commitment to an active role in Europe

Mission failure : America and the world in the post-Cold War era by Michael Mandelbaum( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mission Failure, Mandelbaum argues that, in the past 25 years, U.S. foreign policy has undergone a significant shift. Historically, U.S. foreign policy was oriented primarily toward threat reduction, but the U.S. military has turned in recent years to missions that are largely humanitarian and socio-political. Mandelbaum argues that ideologically-driven foreign policy--that which seeks to reconstruct societies along Western lines--generally leads to mission failure"--

The new European diasporas : national minorities and conflict in Eastern Europe( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The European upheavals of the twentieth century have left in their wake a series of national minorities in Eastern Europe. These "new diasporas" have been created by the movement not of people but of borders. The interaction of these minorities, the new states in which they are located, and the homeland states where their co-nationals predominate and from which they have been separated is the leading cause of large-scale conflict in the wake of communism's collapse. The politics of four of these European "national triads"--Hungarians, Russians, Serbs, and Albanians - is the focus of this important book."--Jacket
