At the highest levels : the inside story of the end of the cold war by Michael R Beschloss( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Turkish and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a story that you did not read in the newspapers. At the Highest Levels reveals a hitherto secret dimension of the most momentous event of our time: the end of the Cold War. Beschloss and Talbott show us the vital transactions that George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev made and concealed from the world: Bush's pledge not to press Gorbachev for Baltic independence, the manipulations for German unification, how the Soviet Union joined the Gulf War Coalition, Bush's private warnings to Gorbachev that he was about to be overthrown, and the U.S. president's secret efforts to prevent the breakup of the Soviet Union and keep Gorbachev in power." "From early in 1989, the two prizewinning authors were granted unprecedented access to classified U.S. and Soviet documents, cables, telephone transcripts, and diplomatic records, on the condition that they not publish the information before the end of 1992. Such was their access that in the final days before the Soviet Union's collapse, as they relate in this book, Beschloss and Talbott were asked by a Gorbachev confidant to convey to President Bush a private message about Gorbachev's fate under Boris Yeltsin." "With novelistic detail and intimacy, At the Highest Levels shows Bush and Gorbachev behind closed doors as they fence with domestic foes and suspicious allies. It demonstrates how the two leaders came to believe that their most dangerous opponents were no longer each other but forces inside their own countries. As Beschloss and Talbott argue, the two leaders' excessive reliance on each other contributed to Gorbachev's fall from power in December 1991 and Bush's own collapse less than a year later."--Jacket
The age of terror : America and the world after September 11 by Strobe Talbott( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

September 11 marked the beginning of a new era--an age of terror in which counter-terrorism will be one of the highest priorities of national governments and international institutions. How we proceed in this new war depends in large measure on the answer to a prior question: what exactly happened here and why? In this book, eight leading historians and policymakers address this question and examine the considerations and objectives of policy decisions in post-September 11 America

The master of the game : Paul Nitze and the nuclear peace by Strobe Talbott( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the signing and ratification of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, the United States and the Soviet Union took the first step ever toward significantly reducing the number of nuclear weapons threatening the world. Even more important, they seemed to be moving closer to a truly epochal agreement that would bring cuts in long-range missiles, at last reversing the arms race that has been going on inexorably since the end of the Second World War. The story behind these events is the story of forty years of argument and disappointment, of secret dealings and false hopes and struggles in the corridors of power in Washington and Moscow. No single man has been so deeply a part of it, for so long, as Paul Henry Nitze. Now 82, and active as ever, he is the focus of Strobe Talbott's brilliant behind-the-scenes report, an intimate history of the whole span of arms control diplomacy rounded out with a detailed narrative of the last three momentous years

U.S.-Soviet nuclear arms control : where we are and how we got there by Strobe Talbott( Book )

10 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the Reagan Administration came into office, the history of nuclear amrs control was at a turning point. That was partly because of the situation that the new Administration inherited. But it was also because of who the Administration was. A group of people who had been unrelentingly critical of arms control from outside the Executive Branch found themselves suddenly on the inside, with the power to translate their long-standing disapproval into the basis for a new set of American objectives and policies. Those people faced a complicated mixture of opportunities and risks. As it turned out, they sometimes mistook one for the other. While one can be optimistic to the point of seeing a possibility of negotiations resuming between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R., one must also recognize the danger that those other negotiations, the intramural ones within the U.S. government will continue to no avail, focused on such old issues as the real negotiability of cruise missiles, but also on the new and potentially crucial issue of the negotiability of strategic defenses. That is the single most interesting and important question that looms at the outset of the next chapter in the history of arms control--if there is to be one

The Marshall Plan and the shaping of American strategy by Will Moreland( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventy years ago, in the wake of World War II, the United States did something almost unprecedented in world history: It launched and paid for an economic aid plan to restore a continent reeling from war. The European Recovery Plan—better known as the Marshall Plan, after chief advocate Secretary of State George C. Marshall—was in part an act of charity but primarily an act of self-interest, intended to prevent postwar Western Europe from succumbing to communism. By speeding the recovery of Europe and establishing the basis for NATO and diplomatic alliances that endure to this day, it became one of the most successful U.S. government programs ever. The Brookings Institution played an important role in the adoption of the Marshall Plan. At the request of Arthur Vandenberg, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Brookings scholars analyzed the plan, including the specifics of how it could be implemented. Their report gave Vandenberg the information he needed to shepherd the plan through a Republican dominated Congress in a presidential election year. --Publisher
Engaging India : diplomacy, democracy, and the bomb by Strobe Talbott( Book )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On May 11, 1998, three nuclear devices exploded under the Thar, or Great Indian Desert, shaking the surrounding villages - and the rest of the world. The immediate effect was to plunge U.S.-India relations, already vexed by decades of tension and estrangement, into a new and acrimonious standoff. The situation deteriorated further when Pakistan responded with a test of its own two weeks later." "Engaging India is the revealing, authoritative account of the intensive talks that the United States conducted on parallel tracks with the South Asian nuclear powers over the next two and a half years. Bill Clinton's point man for that high-stakes diplomacy takes us behind the scenes of one of the most intriguing and consequential political dramas of our time, reconstructing what happened - and why." "From June 1998 through September 2000, in the most extensive engagement ever between the United States and India, Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott and Minister of External Affairs Jaswant Singh met fourteen times in seven countries on three continents. They grappled with the urgent issues of arms control and nonproliferation, but they also discussed their visions for the U.S.-India relationship, the potential for economic and strategic cooperation between the two countries, and the implications of Hindu nationalism for the evolution of Indian society, politics, and security. Their personal rapport helped raise the level of trust between the two governments. As a result, the United States was able to play a crucial role in defusing the crisis between India and Pakistan over the contested territory of Kashmir in the summer of 1999 - thus, perhaps, averting a war that could have escalated to nuclear conflagration." "The Talbott-Singh dialogue laid the ground for Clinton's transformational visit to South Asia in March 2000. That presidential journey opened a new chapter in relations between the United States and India. It also set the scene for U.S. cooperation with both India and Pakistan in the war against terror after September 11, 2001"--Jacket
