15 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A Century's Journey, Robert A. Pastor and six other preeminent foreign policy scholars argue that the key to understanding the world's future lies in how the great powers shaped the twentieth century - from a world of conquest and exclusive spheres-of-influence to one of pluralism, market-driven openness and international institutions. In contrast to some proponents of concepts like globalization, "the clash of civilizations" and "democratic peace," the authors believe that nation-states remain the decisive actors on the international stage." "A Century's Journey is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand today's complex web of global power."--Jacket

Whirlpool : U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America and the Caribbean by Robert A Pastor( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In every generation the United States has been drawn into the Latin American whirlpool, where it becomes obsessed with small nations like Nicaragua and defiant dictators like Manuel Noriega. Then, just as suddenly, we are released and forget the region. Has the end of the Cold War liberated the United States from the whirlpool of recurring interventions in Latin American politics? To answer this question, Robert Pastor draws on more than fifteen years of formulating and writing about U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America and the Caribbean. In this timely book, he maintains that the collapse of communism is less important in permitting the United States to escape the whirlpool than are the new trends of democracy and freer trade in the region. After a personal reminiscence of the Panamanian leader Omar Torrijos and his lessons for inter-American relations, Pastor provides an overview of U.S. Latin American policy under Presidents Carter, Reagan, and Bush and an analysis of the distinctive role played by Congress. Next he looks at the recurring challenges faced by the United States in this century - how it has tried but often failed to manage succession crises, stop revolutionaries, promote elections, and encourage development in the region. Finally, Pastor offers a series of far-reaching policy recommendations based partly on a redefinition of sovereignty. In the post-Cold War era, the United States still needs to cut the Gordian security knot that connects instability, intervention, and massive refugee flow and, at times, drugs and terrorism. To solve these problems and exit the whirlpool, Washington should renounce unilateral intervention and take the lead in establishing a new system to collectively defend democracy and forge a freer trade area. This new hemispheric democratic community would also give the United States an advantage in the economic competition against Japan and Germany, and it could serve as a model for a new relationship between the rich and poor nations of the world

"In The North American Idea, eminent scholar and policy-maker Robert A. Pastor dissects the failure of NAFTA and argues that, to re-invigorate North America's economy, our leaders need to start with an idea based on a principle of interdependence. If one country fails, all three are harmed, and if one grows, they all benefit. Drawing on first-hand experience as a policy-maker and analyst, Pastor shows how this idea--once woven into the national consciousness of the three countries--could mobilize public support for continental solutions to problems that have confounded each nation working on its own"--Proporcionado por el editor
Not condemned to repetition : the United States and Nicaragua by Robert A Pastor( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the fall of Anastasio Somoza, the rise of the Sandinistas, and the contra war, the United States and Nicaragua seemed destined to repeat the mistakes made by the U.S. and Cuba forty years before. The 1990 election in Nicaragua broke the pattern. Robert Pastor was a major US policymaker in the critical period leading up to and following the Sandinista Revolution of 1979. A decade later after writing the first edition of this book, he organized the International Mission led by Jimmy Carter that mediated the first free election in Nicaragua's history. From his unique vantage point, and utilizing a wealth of original material from classified government documents and from personal interviews with U.S. and Nicaraguan leaders, Pastor shows how Nicaragua and the United States were prisoners of a tragic history and how they finally escaped. This revised and updated edition covers the events of the democratic transition, and it extracts the lessons to be learned from the past
