From colony to superpower : U.S. foreign relations since 1776 by George C Herring( Book )

33 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 3,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian Herring uses foreign relations as the lens through which to tell the story of America's rise from thirteen disparate colonies along the Atlantic coast to the world's greatest superpower. He documents America's interaction with other peoples and nations, a story of stunning successes and sometimes tragic failures, captured in a fast-paced narrative that illuminates the central importance of foreign relations to the existence and survival of the nation, and highlights its ongoing impact on the lives of ordinary citizens. He shows how policymakers defined American interests broadly to include territorial expansion, access to growing markets, and the spread of an "American way" of life, and how much America's expansion as a nation also owes to the adventurers and explorers, the merchants and captains of industry, the missionaries and diplomats, who discovered or charted new lands, developed new avenues of commerce, and established and defended the nation's interests in foreign lands.--From publisher description

The secret diplomacy of the Vietnam War : the Negotiating volumes of the Pentagon Papers( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1971 RAND consultant Daniel J. Ellsberg made national news by handing over to the New York Times a top secret Pentagon study on the Vietnam War. Publication of the Pentagon Papers rocked the American defense establishment and fanned the flames of the growing antiwar protest movement in the United States. By late that year, most of the Pentagon Papers had been released to the public. Four volumes, however, were held back, Ellsberg himself conceding their special sensitivity. These so-called negotiating volumes deal with the diplomacy of the war between 1964 and 1968. Published in book form with extensive commentary, they provide an indispensable source for the study of diplomacy during the Vietnam conflict. These documents cover thirteen major peace contacts and initiatives that took place during the presidency of Lyndon Johnson. They furnish a wealth of new information about the American bombing pauses of May 1965 and January 1966; several third-party peace initiatives; and a still virtually unknown 1965 contact, mysteriously called xyz, between North Vietnamese and American diplomats in Paris. They afford the most complete documentation yet available of the Polish-sponsored peace move codenamed marigold and the abortive peace initiative launched early in 1967 by British Prime Minister Wilson and Soviet Premier Kosygin. The utility of this important book is greatly enhanced by Herring s extensive annotation, highly informative introductory essays, and helpful glossaries. -- Amazon.com

Binding their wounds : America's assault on its veterans by Robert J Topmiller( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is in the nature of our naiveté about war that we prepare for combat but rarely for its aftermath. Vietnam vet and historian Robert "Doc" Topmiller began this book while he was still struggling with his own PTSD but died before he could finish it. Completed by his friends, this book provides an engaging account of America's attitudes and treatment of its veterans, from the revolutionary war forward. Major chapters focus on the failures of the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and its predecessors, to address the needs of vets exposed to radiation in post World War II military experiments, vets suffering from Gulf War illnesses, and vets exposed to Agent Orange during Vietnam. Particular attention is given to the persistent issues of trauma and suicide in soldiers and veterans. This volume documents strengths and shortcomings of military and VA responses to the needs of our servicemen and women and suggests ways that we can do better, including the avoidance of armed conflict. Rich in personal accounts of veterans, Doc's own story is compellingly woven into the narrative. -- Publisher Description

The American century and beyond : U.S. foreign relations, 1893-2015 by George C Herring( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George C. Herring recounts the rise of the United States from the dawn of what came to be known as the American Century. This fast-paced narrative tells a story of stunning successes and tragic failures, illuminating the central importance of foreign relations to the existence and survival of the nation. Herring shows how policymakers defined American interests broadly to include territorial expansion, access to growing markets, and the spread of the 'American way of life.' He recounts the United States' domination of the Caribbean and Pacific, its decisive involvement in two world wars, and the eventual victory in the half-century Cold War that left it, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the world's lone superpower. But the unipolar moment turned out to be stunningly brief. Since the turn of the twenty-first century, conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and the emergence of nations such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China have left the United States in a position that is uncertain at best. A new chapter brings Herring's sweeping narrative up through the Global War on Terror to the present."--Provided by publisher
