The United States in the 1980s by Peter Duignan( Book )

38 editions published between 1980 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in The United States in the 1980s, written by a group of renowned and widely respected specialists, are a major contribution to a balanced discussion of the choices that lie ahead. The authors analyze the central issues, describe the policy options open to the country, and recommend specific courses of action to deal with or mitigate the problems confronting the United States--in recognition of the fact that the major problems of the new decade "are interrelated, that no problem can be resolved in isolation, and that different perspectives can contribute to a clearer and more balanced understanding of the problems that are often viewed as separate from one another." The United States in 1980s will not provide comfort or reassurance for pessimists or optimists. On the contrary, by stressing that there are realistic limits to America's ability to solve all problems--domestic and international--the essays offer guidance for sensible solutions and identify the solid base of strength upon which the United States can build in the new decade

The United States and Africa : a history by Peter Duignan( Book )

20 editions published between 1978 and 1990 in English and French and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing the reciprocal relationship between Africa and North America from the seventeenth-century slave trade onwards, two leading authorities in the field provide a major revision to traditional colonial African history as well as to US history. Departing from prior accounts that tended to emphasise only the role of the colonial metropoles in developing Africa, the authors show how American pioneers - missionaries, traders, prospectors, miners, engineers, scientists, and others - have helped to shape Africa. They also point to the equally important impact made by Africa on the United States through trade and immigration, and through the influence of Africans on the arts and agriculture, among other facets of American life. In a study of exceptionally broad scope, the authors devote particular attention to the development of United States policy regarding Africa, the impact of private enterprise, the operation of governmental lobbies, the administration of foreign aid, and the involvement of Africa in the Cold War

The rebirth of the West : the Americanization of the democratic world, 1945-1958 by Peter Duignan( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The years following World War II witnessed perhaps the greatest success story in Western history - the economic and political recovery of European democracies that had been devastated by the cataclysmic war. Peter Duignan and L. H. Gann convincingly demonstrate that the deep invovlement of the United States was a key factor in this success. According to this well-researched account, now available in paperback for the first time, the United States provided money and ideas that profoundly influenced European education, research, technology, business, and art. By far the most comprehensive treatement of the subject to date, The Rebirth of the West analyzes every aspect of Western society during this formative period - political, economic, social, cultural, and scientific. In addition to providing an interpretive synthesis of the vast literature on the subject, the authors make an important and original contribution to both the historical record of this period and current debates over the future of Europe. -- from back cover

10 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this comprehensive picture of Belgian colonialism in the Congo, Lewis Gann and Peter Duignan trace the formation of the colonial state that became Zaire, considering it in the light of colonial experience in other African territories. Whereas most studies have focused on the conquest and subjugation of the African population, this study probes the colonial apparatus itself, investigating the attitudes and behavior of the civil servants and soldiers who built the empire. Originally published in 1979. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make ava
