8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most solemn obligation of any president is to safeguard the nation's security--but the president cannot do this alone. He needs help. In the past half century, presidents have relied on their national security advisers to provide that help. Who are these people, the powerful officials who operate out of public view and accountable only to the presidents who put them there? Some remain obscure even to this day, but quite a number have names that resonate far beyond the foreign policy élite: McGeorge Bundy, Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice. Daalder and Destler provide the first inside look at how presidents from John F. Kennedy to George W. Bush have used their national security advisers to manage America's engagements with the outside world.--From publisher description

14 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In november 1977, a U. S. trade official led an economic mission to Tokyo to urge changes in Japanese policies. The purpose was to avert what U. S. officials saw as a threatening crisis in bilateral economic relations. He was chosen, in part, for his modest rank and low-key personal style, because the United States's objective was to press issues strongly but privately. Instead, the mission provoked a media storm in Tokyo-so much of a storm that, when the emissary callled upon Prime Minister Takeo Fukuda, he was greeted with the words, "I am happy to meet the most famous man in Japan
Beyond the beltway : engaging the public in U.S. foreign policy( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the end of the Cold War and the election of Bill Clinton as president, anxiety about America's economic future has replaced foreign affairs as the country's main concern. The United States needs to redefine its national security in terms of a strong domestic policy. But will this lead to a new isolationism that would weaken American ties to the world? In the absence of the stable public consensus that supported an anti-Communist foreign policy, U.S. leaders will need to forge a more direct dialogue with a skeptical public on which U.S. foreign interests they deem vital. In this new climate, how can American policy makers adapt to broaden public support for a strong foreign policy? In this collection of original essays, sponsored by the American Assembly, some of the nation's leading experts on foreign affairs assess the problem of building public involvement in foreign policy in the post-superpower era. Included is Daniel Yankelovich's and John Immerwahr's influential rendering of how to influence public opinion through a series of phased campaigns
