8 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political posters are historical documents. They open windows to the conditions and conflicts of an earlier time. In their designs and slogans we see how governments and political factions responded to economic crises, social change. and ideological and armed conflict, and how they sought to sway the perceptions and feelings of the man and woman in the street. Posters are also aesthetic objects. Their composition, color and symbols are both separate from their overt political message and the instruments of expressing it. Posters reveal their historical meaning more clearly if we pay attention to their visual characteristics as well as to their political intent. This book treats the poster both as art and as historical witness. Posters are not relegated to the secondary role of illustrating a historical text nor are they treated as autonomous aesthetic objects in a history of applied arts. Instead they are substantial components of a historical narrative that is made up of both image and text. The close interaction of words and posters drawn from Russia, central and western Europe, and the United States, opens fresh perspectives on a half century of war and revolution and constitutes a step toward a new kind of integrative history that conveys the past with unusual immediacy

Reykjavik revisited : steps toward a world free of nuclear weapons : complete report of the 2007 Hoover Institution conference by George Pratt Shultz( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in Reykjavik Revisited essentially address three topics. They address specific actions to reduce and redeploy nuclear weapons en route to zero and key challenges to implementing them. The second concern addressed is preventing the proliferation of new nuclear weapons capabilities and the growth of new dangers, while at the same time the number of weapons is being reduced. The third category, a diplomatic offensive, addresses the diplomatic challenge to turn the effort of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons into a joint international effort at the highest levels of government. The appendixes include the conference agenda, a list of participants, and the articles that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on January 4, 2007, "A World Free of Nuclear Weapons" and on January 15, 2008, "Toward a Nuclear-Free World.""--Jacket
Implications of the Reykjavik summit on its twentieth anniversary : conference report by Sidney D Drell( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexandra Andreevna Voronine and her mother lived in Kharkov alone, destitute, and fearing for their lives because of World War I, revolution, civil war, and famine. When Alexandra went to work in 1921 at the office that was coordinating Russian and foreign famine relief, she met Captain Vidkun Quisling, Fridtjof Nansen's representative in the Ukraine. In 1922, at the age of seventeen, she married the man whose name became synonymous with traitor during World War II and accompanied him to Oslo." "Abandoned in Paris within a year, penniless and unaware of being a pawn in a game of international intrigue, Alexandra remained under Quisling's strict control for several more years. When her tumultuous life eventually took her to China, she married W. George Yourieff, who supported her efforts to recall and analyze her years as Quisling's wife. A further tide of events saw the Yourieffs settled in California, and in 1980 they began a collaboration with the Norwegian-born historian and novelist Kirsten A. Seaver. The archives Seaver consulted in London and Oslo and at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University confirmed Alexandra's intensely personal, episodic recollections about an extraordinary life and provided the necessary connective tissue. They also revealed to Alexandra at long last the brutal story behind her lost years."--Jacket
The nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactors by Sidney D Drell( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear energy can provide great benefits to society; in the form of nuclear weapons, however, it can cause death and destruction on an unparalleled scale. The challenge is how to deal with the catastrophic risk of the nuclear enterprise so as to preserve its positive elements and make economic sense. In this book, an expert group of contributors attempts to answer two key questions facing the nuclear enterprise: (1) What can and should be done to improve operations and public understanding of the risks and consequences of major incidents? (2) How can informed scientists, economists, and journalists interact more effectively in understanding and reporting to the public on the most important issues affecting risks, consequences, and costs? Drawn from a conference held at Stanford University's Hoover Institution on October 3-4, 2011, the papers presented in The Nuclear Enterprise were prepared by specialists on various aspects of this challenging topic, including technical safety, management operations, regulatory measures, and the importance of accurate communication by the media. It is their hope that the findings of the conference will contribute to discussion and then actions to better contain and eliminate growing global dangers
Red and blue nation? : characteristics and causes of America's polarized politics. Vol. 1 by Pietro S Nivola( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on the findings of the first volume of Red and blue nation?, published in 2006, which explored the extent of political polarization in America and its possible causes, this new volume delves into the consequences of the gulf between 'red states' and 'blue states'. The authors examine the impact of these political divisions on voter behavior, congressional lawmaking, judicial selection, and foreign policy. They also discuss proposals to change the electoral system and congressional rules of engagement and present policies and reforms for alleviating the underlying causes of political polarization
