Pax Americana by Ronald Steel( Book )

78 editions published between 1967 and 1977 in 8 languages and held by 1,790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"KIRKUS REVIEW : In a first book, The End of Alliance: America and the Future of Europe, the author, a young writer on international affairs, wrote an important popular study of the withering away of the Atlantic strategy of the United States and the disruption of NATO out of old age. In the present study, the author widens his investigation of the Kennedy-Johnson foreign policies and comes out of this intelligent and well-reasoned work with a general condemnation of the globalistic urge of recent American presidents to create a Pax America unrelated to this nation's resources or long-term interests. The villains of this intensely polemical work are all men of good will who, in varying degrees, suffer from what D. W. Brogan has called the ""illusion of American omnipotence."" The consequences of their amateurism have increased the world's insecurity and augmented the danger of crisis situations, natural to a world of 140 nation-states, boiling over the brim of diplomacy into the unknown. The way out is to doff the messianic sense of mission and detail Chinese and Soviet imperialism rather than communist ideology as the task to be dealt with, at the same time realizing that nationalism is a more reliable defense against expansionism than anti-communism."
In love with night : the American romance with Robert Kennedy by Ronald Steel( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than three decades have passed since Robert Kennedy was assassinated seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency. During that time a powerful legend has grown around him. It decrees that he would have quickly ended the Vietnam War, violence in the cities, and racial and social injustice across the land. Millions of Americans continue to believe that legend." "But would he have done what so many wanted from him? Is the Robert Kennedy legend just that - a legend based more on hope and longing than on reality?" "Drawing on his interpretation of Kennedy's character, historian Ronald Steel examines the life against the legend." "With empathy, yet with skepticism, Steel holds up to scrutiny the three central elements of the Kennedy legend: the faith in a golden kingdom of Camelot that could be restored, the belief that he would have achieved the goals that liberals sought, and the hope that he would have united blacks and whites in common endeavor."--Jacket

Liberty and the news by Walter Lippmann( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This little gem of a book, which first appeared in 1920, was written in Walter Lippmann's thirtieth year. He was still full of the passionate faith in democracy that was evident in his writings before the First World War. From today's point of view, Lippmann's argument seems unusually prescient. He was troubled by distortions in newspaper journalism, but was also deeply aware of the need to protect a free press. Lippmann believed that toleration of alternative beliefs was essential to maintaining the vitality of democracy."--Back cover
