Power and willpower in the American future : why the United States is not destined to decline by Robert J Lieber( )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To argue against the widely proclaimed idea of American decline might seem a lonely task. After all, the problems are real and serious. Yet if we take a longer view, much of the discourse about decline appears exaggerated, hyperbolic and ahistorical. Why? First, because of the deep underlying strengths of the United States. These include not only size, population, demography and resources, but also the scale and importance of its economy and financial markets, its scientific research and technology, its competitiveness, its military power and its attractiveness to talented immigrants. Second, there is the weight of history and of American exceptionalism. Throughout its history, the United States has repeatedly faced and eventually overcome daunting challenges and crises. Contrary to a prevailing pessimism, there is nothing inevitable about American decline. Ultimately, the ability to avoid serious decline is less a question of material factors than of policy, leadership and political will"--

The American era : power and strategy for the 21st century by Robert J Lieber( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Era makes a provocative argument about America's world role. It sets out the case for a grand strategy that recognizes American preponderance as necessary and desirable for coping with the perils of the post-9/11 world. Firstly, militant Islamic terrorism plus weapons of mass destruction pose a threat and require us to alter the way we think about the preemptive and even preventive use of force. Secondly, the UN and other international bodies are habitually incapable of acting on the most urgent problems. Thirdly, in a decentralized international system other countries will look to the U.S. for leadership as no other country has the ability or the will to do so. Thus, when such values as human rights, liberty and stability cannot be reliably assured by institutions such as the UN and the European Union, active intervention by the U.S. on those issues that matter most becomes a necessity, not something about which to be apologetic

Eagle rules? : foreign policy and American primacy in the twenty-first century( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important and original volume assesses what we now know about world politics and American foreign policy after more than a decade of the post-Cold War era, and the wider implications of this experience both for the U.S role in the 21st Century and for international relations more broadly. The chapter authors are leading authorities in their fields, and their contributions integrate both foreign and domestic setting for foreign policy. Part I looks at public opinion, debates about humanitarian intervention, the use of force in foreign conflicts, and congressional-executive relations in the making of foreign policy. Part II deals with the key regional issues confronting the United States, including the Middle East, Europe, Russia, China and East Asia, Latin America and Africa. Part III addresses major functional topics, including international economics and trade, defense policy, proliferation, "rogue" states, the environment, and America's relationship to the United Nations. For individuals interested in the United State's degree of international primacythe impact of domestic politics on its world role, and the longer-term implications of foreign policy

Retreat and its consequences : American foreign policy and the problem of world order by Robert J Lieber( Book )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the consequences of retreat and retrenchment in foreign policy? In recent years, America has pulled back from its long-time role of international leadership. In doing so the Obama administration has sought to conciliate adversaries, shown indifference to allies; called upon the international community to step in; proclaimed and then disavowed 'red lines'; and preferred to lead from behind in the face of catastrophic civil war in Syria, ISIS barbarism in the Middle East and North Africa, Russia's predatory behavior in Eastern Europe, and China's muscle-flexing in East Asia. The consequences of this "realist" experiment have been costly and painful, and it has caused the US to lose credibility with friends and foes. America retains the capacity to lead, but unless it resumes a more robust role, the world is likely to become a more dangerous place, with mounting threats not only to regional stability and international order, but to the national interests of America itself. --
