The Media and foreign policy by Simon Serfaty( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and Arabic and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past two decades the press in the USA has gained a reputation as a major force affecting both the substance of national policy and the process by which it is formulated. On a host of issues - from the US involvement in Vietnam and Richard Nixon's opening to China to the downfall of Philippines President Ferdinand Marcos - the media has emerged as an important "third presence" influencing the interaction of governments with their domestic publics. And where the influence of the media has grown, controversy has been quick to follow. In this volume leading journalists and officials as well as academic experts analyze the respective roles of the press and the government in the formulation and implementation of foreign policy. One surprising conclusion subscribed by most of the authors is that more, not less, media coverage of foreign affairs is required if both the public interest and the national interest are to be well served. -- Description of the original version

Visions of America and Europe : September 11, Iraq, and Transatlantic relations( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the many books analyzing the clash between the Bush administration and much of Europe, this one . is among the most valuable."--Foreign Affairs. "This collection of essays is a must-read for all those who still believe the West has, and must have, a future. It is both informed and passionately moderate."--Dominique Moisi, Senior Adviser, French Institute for International Relations. Visions of America and Europe provides a thoughtful examination of transatlantic relations since the events of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent Iraq war. A compilation of essays by U.S. and European analysts, the book seeks to identify the forces that are shaping the respective policies and public perceptions on either side of the Atlantic. It attempts to trace the origins of the post-September 11 transatlantic rift and to illuminate the current and future challenges for bilateral relations and for the relationship between Europe and the United States. Five European contributors offer perspectives focusing on the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Russia, complementing the views of three U.S. scholars, against the background of the editors' introductory and concluding observations. Even as events continue to confound observers on both sides of the Atlantic, this volume offers perceptive commentary on questions that are likely to be with us for a long time

A world recast : an American moment in a post-Western order by Simon Serfaty( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this powerful and provocative book, distinguished scholar Simon Serfaty vigorously argues that while it is possible, and even desirable, to acknowledge the passing of the Western era, it is exaggerated to present it as an irreversible decline of the United States and the rest of the West, relative to China and the rest of the Rest. Rather, he shows that the unfolding post-Western moment of zero-polarity will be messy, involving a dozen or more other countries. But Serfaty convincingly contends that even during this moment of geopolitical transition, American power remains superior, and thus
Visions of the Atlantic Alliance : the United States, the European Union, and NATO by Simon Serfaty( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notwithstanding a significant change of tone in U.S.-European relations since the reelection of President George W. Bush, the transatlantic partnership remains a complex imbalance of states and institutions -- an alliance that is troubled, unhinged, and may even be fading. This is not the long-announced end of the alliance, but it is surely the long-neglected end of an era. Yet for all the differences that exist between the United States and the states of Europe, and for all the differences that remain within Europe about the fate of its Union, Europe matters to America, and America to Europe, because overlapping interests, compatible values, and converging interests make of each the other's partner of choice -- indeed, partner of necessity. This volume reviews many of the highest priority issues faced by the United States and Europe, as well as the main institutions to which they belong: economic issues, including the persistent U.S. twin deficits and the evolution of a virtual Euro-Atlantic economy relative to the global economy; the Middle East, including Iran's nuclear development, postwar conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the need for democratic reform in the region; the future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the European Union as institutions; the threat of nuclear terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; unfinished security business in Europe, including the status of Ukraine, as well as Russia's evolution; and the so-called U.S.-European values gap as an obstacle to the renewal of the transatlantic partnership

A recast partnership? : institutional dimensions of transatlantic relations( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With new leaders in place in Germany, France, and Britain and with elections in Russia, Spain, Italy, and the United States in 2008, the stage is set for change and a new transatlantic beginning in 2009. The contributors to this volume offer an agenda for action - not to reinvent either NATO or the European Union but, rather, to recast these two main institutional dimensions of the transatlantic partnership in ways that can make each better suited to the other and make both more effectively prepared to help their 32 members address the issues - security, economic, political, and societal - they face in common."--Jacket
