Perils of dominance : imbalance of power and the road to war in Vietnam by Gareth Porter( )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 2,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perils of Dominance is the first completely new interpretation of how and why the United States went to war in Vietnam. It challenges the prevailing theory that U.S. officials adhered blindly to the Cold War doctrine that loss of Vietnam would result in a "domino effect" and lead to communist domination of Southeast Asia. Gareth Porter presents compelling evidence that U.S. policy decisions on Vietnam from 1954 to mid-1965 were shaped by an overwhelming imbalance of military power favoring the United States over the Soviet Union and China."--Jacket
Global environmental politics by Pamela S Chasek( Book )

34 editions published between 1991 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Global Environmental Politics was first published, the environment was just emerging as a pivotal issue in traditional international relations. Now the environment is a topic central to discussions of security politics and the relationship between foreign and domestic policy - and so much has changed that Gareth Porter and Janet Welsh Brown found themselves rewriting more than half of their original text. With new cases on biodiversity and desertification, this classic work is more complete and up-to-date than any survey of environmental politics on the market." "In addition to providing a concise yet comprehensive overview of global environmental issues, the authors have worked to contextualize key topics such as the Rio conference, water security, the biodiversity treaty, and trade in toxics. Environmental concerns from global warming to the ozone layer to whaling are seen as challenges to transnational relations, with governments, NGOs, IGOS, and MNCs all facing the prospect of multilateral interaction to solve a growing global problem."--Jacket
