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

32 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 1,695 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 )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,676 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 )

17 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 873 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
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( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past five years have been turbulent for the eurozone. Yet leaders such as Angela Merkel and François 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 brandy artisans. He had no formal training as an economist, yet he is ranked alongside Keynes. He was never elected to public office, and his fellow countrymen sometimes mocked him as "the great American." Ironically, some believed that Monnet's arguments were particularly effective with FDR, and later speculated that they might even have helped shorten World War II by a year. In this essay, Talbott demonstrates how Monnet's vision of integration may serve as a guide to ending the current eurozone crisis. With minds in key capitals now focused on cobbling together institutional measures of the sort that Monnet believed necessary for monetary union, his vision of a united Europe may well survive and, over time, succeed

The Soviet mind : Russian culture under communism by Isaiah Berlin( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a revised foreword by Brookings President Strobe Talbott and a new introduction by Berlin's editor, Henry Hardy. George Kennan, the architect of US policy toward the Soviet Union, called Isaiah Berlin 'the patron saint among the commentators of the Russian scene.' In The Soviet Mind, Berlin proves himself fully worthy of that accolade. Although the essays in this book were originally written to explore the tensions between Soviet communism and Russian culture, the thinking about the Russian mind that emerges is as relevant today under Putin's post-communist Russia as it was when this book first appeared more than a decade ago. This Brookings Classic brings together Berlin's writings about the Soviet Union. Among the highlights are accounts of Berlin's meetings with the Russian writers in the aftermath of the war; a celebrated memorandum he wrote for the British Foreign Office in 1945 about the state of the arts under Stalin; Berlin's account of Stalin's manipulative 'artificial dialectic'; portraits of Pasternak and poet Osip Mandel'shtam; Berlin's survey of Russian culture based on a visit in 1956; and a postscript reflecting on the fall of the Berlin Wall and other events in 1989. Henry Hardy prepared the essays for publication; his introductory discussions describe their history. In his foreword, revised for this new edition, Brookings's Strobe Talbott, a long-time expert on Russia and the Soviet Union, relates the essays to Berlin's other work. The essays and other pieces in The Soviet Mind-which includes a new essay, 'Marxist versus Non-Marxist Ideas in Soviet Policy, ' and a summary of a talk on communism-represent Berlin at his most brilliant, and are invaluable for policy-makers, students and anyone interested in Russian politics and thought-past, present and future"

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

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 124 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
