4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,454 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'.

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
Advancing democracy abroad : why we should and how we can by Michael McFaul( )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,319 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."--Pub. desc

The nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactors by Sidney D Drell( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,103 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

Implications of the Reykjavik summit on its twentieth anniversary : conference report by Sidney D Drell( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,003 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

Guns and rubles : the defense industry in the Stalinist state( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For this book a distinguished team of economists and historians -- R.W. Davies, Paul R. Gregory, Andrei Markevich, Mikhail Mukhin, Andrei Sokolov, and Mark Harrison -- scoured formerly closed Soviet archives to discover how Stalin used rubles to make guns. Focusing on various aspects of the defense industry, a top-secret branch of the Soviet economy, the volume's contributors uncover new information on the inner workings of Stalin's dictatorship, military and economic planning, and the industrial organization of the Soviet economy. Previously unknown details about Stalin's command system come to light, as do fascinating insights into the relations between Soviet public and private interests. The authors show that defense was at the core of Stalin's system of rule; single-minded management of the defense sector helped him keep his grip on power"--Jacket

Restoring quality health care : a six-point plan for comprehensive reform at lower cost by Scott W Atlas( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Restoring Quality Health Care, Dr. Scott Atlas examines the status of US health care, particularly in light of the Affordable Care Act, and presents a series of key reforms to meet the significant health care challenges facing the nation. Atlas proposes a six-point, strategic, incentive-based reform plan for US health care. The plan aims to instill market-based competition, empower consumers, and reduce the federal governments authority over health care. Those reforms focus on restoring the appropriate incentives in to increase the quality of health care and reduce its costs. Atlass plan restores the intended purpose of health insurance (to protect against the risk of significant and unexpected health care costs), enhances the affordability of twenty-first-century medical care, and ensures continued innovation. Were the plan to be implemented fully, private and federal government health expenditures would conservatively decrease by trillions of dollars during the decade and access to high-quality health care would significantly improve

Persuasive images : posters of war and revolution from the Hoover Institution archives by Peter Paret( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 838 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
