North Korea and the world : human rights, arms control, and strategies for negotiation by Walter C Clemens( )

12 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With nearly twenty-five million citizens, a secretive totalitarian dictatorship, and active nuclear and ballistic missile weapons programs, North Korea presents some of the world's most difficult foreign policy challenges. For decades, the United States and its partners have employed multiple strategies in an effort to prevent Pyongyang from acquiring weapons of mass destruction. Washington has moved from the Agreed Framework under President Bill Clinton to George W. Bush's denunciation of the regime as part of the 'axis of evil' to a posture of 'strategic patience' under Barack Obama. Given that a new president will soon occupy the White House, policy expert Walter C. Clemens Jr. argues that now is the time to reconsider US diplomatic efforts in North Korea. Clemens poses the question, 'Can, should, and must we negotiate with a regime we regard as evil?' Weighing the needs of all the stakeholders--including China, Japan, Russia, and South Korea--he concludes that the answer is yes. After assessing nine other policy options, he makes the case for engagement and negotiation with the regime. There still may be time to freeze or eliminate North Korea's weapons of mass destruction. Grounded in philosophy and history, this volume offers a fresh road map for negotiators and outlines a grand bargain that balances both ethical and practical security concerns."--Provided by publisher
Can Russia change? : the USSR confronts global interdependence by Walter C Clemens( )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1990, this ground-breaking book sought to determine whether contemporary Russia had the capacity to change and if, in so doing, it could alter the complex web of East-West relations from a zero-sum struggle to a state of peaceful competition and mutual security. In order to answer this question, the author compares advances and setbacks in arms control and security affairs with co-operation on less politically salient issues such as environmental degradation. He finds that in the nearly seventy years preceding Mikhail Gorbachev's rise to power, the Kremlin relied o

America and the world, 1898-2025 : achievements, failures, alternative futures by Walter C Clemens( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys US achievements and failures in the world across the 20th century. The analysis builds upon surveys of experts at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and several universities conducted over the last 25 years. The reasons for success and failure are subject to hot dispute. Walter Clemens argues that the individual traits of US leaders account for far more variation in outcomes than the domestic or international contexts. He concludes that the policy outcomes of the past century confirm the assumptions of mutual gain theory, complexity theory, and liberal peace theory. Clemens then uses his analysis to sketch alternative futures that could face planners in the early 21st century

Getting to yes in Korea by Walter C Clemens( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Korean and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can Northeast Asia become a zone of peace instead of a short fuse to war? With threatened satellite launches and missile tests, North Korea figured early among Barack Obama's many challenges. President George W. Bush had pinned North Korea to an axis of evil but then neglected Pyongyang until it tested a nuclear device. Would the new administration make similar mistakes? When the Clinton White House prepared to bomb North Korea's nuclear facilities, private citizen Jimmy Carter mediated to avert war and set the stage for a deal freezing North Korea's plutonium production. The 1994 Agreed Framework collapsed after eight years, but when Pyongyang went critical, the negotiations got serious. Using more carrots than sticks, Washington and its four main partners persuaded Pyongyang to commit to disabling its nuclear weapon facilities. Each time the parties advanced one or two steps, however, their advance seemed to spawn one or two steps backward. The history of U.S.-North Korean relations provides important lessons for negotiators how not to deal with dangerous adversaries but also how to create accommodations useful to each side. Clemens distills lessons from U.S. negotiations with Russia, China, and Libya and analyzes how they do and do not apply to six-party and bilateral talks with North Korea in a new political era
Dynamics of international relations : conflict and mutual gain in an age of global interdependence by Walter C Clemens( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What has changed in international relations after 9/11 and what remains much as before? This second edition of "Dynamics of International Relations" remains grounded in theory and history - three basic perspectives on international relations are tested against recurrent cases of conflict and cooperation issues in world affairs. It uses this framework to put in perspective the confrontation between two new actors on the world scene, the George W. Bush administration and the al-Qaeda network of Osama bin Laden, each determined to destroy the other in a global struggle
The Baltic transformed : complexity theory and European security by Walter C Clemens( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why isn't the Baltic region like the Balkans? Why have the Baltic republics not experienced ethnic cleansing, border wars, authoritarian rule, and social chaos? Instead, peace, democracy, and market economies have taken root since the fall of communism. Walter C. Clemens, Jr., here uses complexity theory, which analyzes the role of self-organization in complex adaptive systems, to explain the 'Baltic miracle.' He argues that the theory is a vital tool for understanding the remarkable strides made by Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania since 1991 in coping with the transition to partnership with the
