Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by Beth L Bailey( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is essential to understanding the United States in the first decade of the new millennium and beyond. These wars were pivotal to American foreign policy and international relations. They raised critical ethical and legal questions; they provoked debates over policy, strategy, and war planning; they helped to shape American domestic politics. And they highlighted a profound division among the American people: While more than two million Americans served in Iraq and Afghanistan, the vast majority of American and their families remained untouched by and frequently barely aware of the wars conducted in their name, far from American shores, in regions about which they knew little. Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan gives us the first book-length, expert historical analysis of these wars. It examines the lessons and legacies of wars whose outcomes may not be clear for decades."

John Foster Dulles : piety, pragmatism, and power in U.S. foreign policy by Richard H Immerman( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Foster Dulles was one of the most influential and controversial figures in the history of the twentieth-century U.S. foreign relations. Active in the field for decades, Dulles reflected and was a reflection of the tension that pervaded the international conduct of the United States from its evolution as a global power in the early twentieth century through its emergence as the 'leader of the free world' during the Cold War. His life and career embody both the best and most troubling aspects of American foreign policy as it progressed toward international supremacy while swaying between altruism and self-interest. Dulles remains an enigma because he was both a crusading idealist and a calculating practitioner of realpolitik. In this biography, Richard Immerman traces Dulles's path from his early days growing up as the son of a Presbyterian minister in Watertown, Ney York, through his years of amassing influence and power as an international business lawyer and adviser, to his service as President Eisenhower's secretary of state. In examining the life of Dulles, this volume illuminates not only the history of modern U.S. foreign policy, but also its search for twentieth-century identity. Sophisticated yet accessible, John Foster Dulles: Piety, Pragmatism, and Power in U.S. Foreign Policy is an important resource for both graduate and undergraduate courses in U.S. History and foreign relations"--Back cover
Empire for liberty : a history of American imperialism from Benjamin Franklin to Paul Wolfowitz by Richard H Immerman( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How could the United States, a nation founded on the principles of liberty and equality, have produced Abu Ghraib, torture memos, Plamegate, and warrantless wiretaps? Did America set out to become an empire? And if so, how has it reconciled its imperialism--and in some cases, its crimes--with the idea of liberty so forcefully expressed in the Declaration of Independence? Empire for Liberty tells the story of men who used the rhetoric of liberty to further their imperial ambitions, and reveals that the quest for empire has guided the nation's architects from the very beginning--and continues to do so today
John Foster Dulles and the diplomacy of the Cold War by Richard H Immerman( Book )

16 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Dwight D. Eisenhower's Secretary of State, John Foster Dulles came to personify the shortcomings of American foreign policy. This collection of essays, representing the first archivally based reassessment of Dulles's diplomacy, examines his role during one of the most critical periods of modern history -- a period of intensifying conflict between the United States and Soviet Union, deepending divisions between East and West Germany, deteriorating relations between the two Chinas, challenges to the world trading order from newly developing nations, and widespread fears of nuclear attack and massive retaliation by the superpowers. Rejecting familiar Cold War stereotypes, this volume reveals the hidden complexities in Dulles's conduct of foreign policy and in his own personality. Book jacket."--Jacket

Fourteen points for the twenty-first century : a renewed appeal for cooperative internationalism( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When the United States entered World War I, President Woodrow Wilson declared to Congress that the objective was not merely to bring "a new balance of power," but rather to bring a "just and secure peace" to the world by the end of the conflict. In this famous speech, known as "The Fourteen Points," Wilson offered the world a road map toward a more equitable international system in the midst of unprecedented global conflict, including ideas on the interconnectedness of democracy, trade, and the concept of a forum for peaceably resolving international disputes. Even decades after the end of the First World War, Wilson's ideas remained important and influenced many of his successors. But now, in the twenty-first century, there are forces at work in the world that Wilson could never have imagined, and those forces call for a new plan toward peace. In Fourteen Points for the Twenty-First Century: A Renewed Appeal for Cooperative Internationalism, Richard H. Immerman and Jeffrey A. Engel bring together a diverse group of thinkers who take up Wilson's call for a new world order by exploring fourteen new directions for the twenty-first century. The contributors-scholars, policymakers, entrepreneurs, poets, doctors, and scientists-propose solutions to contemporary challenges such as migration, global warming, health care, food security, and privacy in the digital age. Taken together, these points challenge American leaders and policymakers to lead an international effort, not to make America great again, but to work cooperatively with other nations on the basis of mutual respect"--

Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Choice Outstanding Academic Title of 2016Investigates the causes, conduct, and consequences of the recent American wars in Iraq and AfghanistanUnderstanding the United States' wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is essential to understanding the United States in the first decade of the new millennium and beyond. These wars were pivotal to American foreign policy and international relations. They were expensive: in lives, in treasure, and in reputation. They raised critical ethical and legal questions; they provoked debates over policy, strategy, and war-planning; they helped to shape American domestic politics. And they highlighted a profound division among the American people: While more than two million Americans served in Iraq and Afghanistan, many in multiple deployments, the vast majority of Americans and their families remained untouched by and frequently barely aware of the wars conducted in their name, far from American shores, in regions about which they know little. Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan gives us the first book-length expert historical analysis of these wars. It shows us how they began, what they teach us about the limits of the American military and diplomacy, and who fought them. It examines the lessons and legacies of wars whose outcomes may not be clear for decades. In 1945 few Americans could imagine that the country would be locked in a Cold War with the Soviet Union for decades; fewer could imagine how history would paint the era. Understanding the U.S. Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan begins to come to grips with the period when America became enmeshed in a succession of "low intensity" conflicts in the Middle East

Empire for Liberty : A History of American Imperialism from Benjamin Franklin to Paul Wolfowitz by Richard H Immerman( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How could the United States, a nation founded on the principles of liberty and equality, have produced Abu Ghraib, torture memos, Plamegate, and warrantless wiretaps? Did America set out to become an empire? And if so, how has it reconciled its imperialism--and in some cases, its crimes--with the idea of liberty so forcefully expressed in the Declaration of Independence? Empire for Liberty tells the story of men who used the rhetoric of liberty to further their imperial ambitions, and reveals that the quest for empire has guided the nation's architects from the very beginning--and continues to do so today. Historian Richard Immerman paints nuanced portraits of six exceptional public figures who manifestly influenced the course of American empire: Benjamin Franklin, John Quincy Adams, William Henry Seward, Henry Cabot Lodge, John Foster Dulles, and Paul Wolfowitz. Each played a pivotal role as empire builder and, with the exception of Adams, did so without occupying the presidency. Taking readers from the founding of the republic to the Global War on Terror, Immerman shows how each individual's influence arose from a keen sensitivity to the concerns of his times; how the trajectory of American empire was relentless if not straight; and how these shrewd and powerful individuals shaped their rhetoric about liberty to suit their needs. But as Immerman demonstrates in this timely and provocative book, liberty and empire were on a collision course. And in the Global War on Terror and the occupation of Iraq, they violently collided

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Début novembre 1956. En Hongrie, l'Armée rouge fonce sur Budapest pour écraser un peuple qui se bat pour sa liberté. En Egypte, les troupes françaises, anglaises et israéliennes, prennent d'assaut le canal de Suez. Objectif : abattre Gamal Abdel Nasser, le porte-étendard du nationalisme arabe. A peine onze ans après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le monde est prêt à s'embraser. Que se passe-t-il cette année-là? Pourquoi les équilibres de 1945 basculent-ils avec autant de violence? Quels nouveaux rapports de force émergeront de ces bouleversements? Ce film propose un retour sur cette année 1956, une année charnière de la guerre froide. Une année qui a rebattu toutes les cartes de la géopolitique pour les décennies à venir." (Source jaquette)
