The age of terror : America and the world after September 11 by Strobe Talbott( Book )
20 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,780 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
At the highest levels : the inside story of the end of the cold war by Michael R Beschloss( Book )
31 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,774 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 master of the game : Paul Nitze and the nuclear peace by Strobe Talbott( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 919 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 )
9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 126 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

This study examines the economic, environmental, and energy security case for DPS

Monnet's Brandy and Europe's Fate a Determined Frenchman's Vision of Integration Serves as a Guide to Ending the Eurozone Crisis by Strobe Talbott( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The past five years have been turbulent for the eurozone. Yet leaders such as Angela Merkel and Fran?ois Hollande are determined to keep The European Project intact, and even among one-time critics there is a broad consensus that the eurozone will have to hang together. Strobe Talbott introduces the extraordinary life and vision of Jean Monnet-the man credited as the architect of European unity. Monnet died in 1979, long before the euro went into circulation, and his relevance today is all the more striking in light of his idiosyncratic career. He was born in 1888 to a long line of b
