The presidency of Richard Nixon by Melvin Small( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twenty-five years after Richard Nixon resigned from office, his legacy remains shrouded in controversy. His was a complex, inconsistent, and even contradictory presidency, shaped by the man's personality and political practices and played out during one of America's most turbulent eras. [The author] now draws on the latest archival releases to take a fresh look at Nixon and place his administration in proper historical perspective."--Jacket

Democracy & diplomacy : the impact of domestic politics on U.S. foreign policy, 1789-1994 by Melvin Small( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Hamiltonian-Jeffersonian split over English and French policy in the 1790s to the Republican-Democratic clash over Haitian policy in the 1990s. Americans and foreign observers have been troubled - and often exasperated - by the extraordinary influence of U.S. domestic politics on matters of vital national security. Some critics, including Alexis de Tocqueville, concluded that America's democratic system would cripple the effective and efficient conduct of its foreign policy." "In this first historical overview of the subject, Melvin Small examines the central role of domestic politics in the shaping and conduct of American foreign policy from the early republic to the end of the Cold War. While accounting for various factors such as special interest groups (including agriculture and business) public opinion the media elections and party politics, and executive-legislative conflicts. Small's discussion focuses on American presidents and the bureaucrats who fashion and carry out foreign policy. Their task is a formidable one, he argues, especially when the legitimate need to conduct some policies in secret clashes with the duty to be accountable to the American people." "The book gives particular attention to the events of the twentieth century, when the United States became a major power - and then a superpower."--Jacket

Each war is characterized as interstate, colonial, or imperial, and major power status and/or central system membership of the warring parties is noted. Part 2, the Civil Wars file, describes when and where fighting took place, whether the war was fought within the boundaries of a major power or central system member, whether there was outside intervention and, if so, whether the intervening state was a major power, on what side they intervened, who won the war, number of battle deaths, total population, and total number of pre-war armed forces ...
