Persuasive images : posters of war and revolution from the Hoover Institution archives by Peter Paret ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 862 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Political posters are historical documents.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

Red and blue nation? consequences and correction of America's polarized politics by Pietro S Nivola ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's polarized politics are largely disconnected from mainstream public preferences. This disconnect poses fundamental dangers for the representativeness and accountability of government, as well as the already withering public trust in it. As the 2008 presidential race kicks into gear, the political climate certainly will not become less polarized. With important issues to address-including immigration policy, health care, and the funding of the Iraq war-it is critical that essential policies not be hostage to partisan political battles.Building upon the findings of the first volume of R

Advancing democracy abroad : why we should and how we can by Michael McFaul ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
After eight years of President Bush's trumpeting the virtues of promoting freedom and democracy abroad but achieving limited results, many Americans have grown suspicious of democratic development as a goal of American foreign policy. As a new administration reviews the role democratization will play in its foreign policy, distinguished Stanford University political scientist and Hoover Institution senior fellow Michael McFaul calls for a reaffirmation of democracy's advance as a goal of U.S. foreign policy and sets out a radically new course to achieve it. In Advancing Democracy Abroad, McFaul explains how democracy provides a more accountable system of government, greater economic prosperity, and better security compared with other systems of government. He then shows how Americans have benefited from the advance of democracy abroad in the past, and speculates about security, economic, and moral benefits for the United States from potential democratic gains around the world. The final chapters explore past examples of successful democracy promotion strategies and outline proposals for effectively supporting democratic development in the future.

The nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactors by Nuclear Enterprise Conference ( )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 580 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
