Grasping the democratic peace : principles for a post-Cold War world by Bruce M Russett( )

32 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 1,943 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is Communism's collapse merely the passing of a particularly lethal adversarial relationship between the super powers - or an extraordinary chance to make fundamental changes in how nations resolve conflicts? In answering this query, Bruce Russett shows that the world's great nations now have an opportunity to realize the "democratic peace" envisioned by Immanuel Kant and Woodrow Wilson. These two men suggested in their own eras what has become increasingly clear in our own: democracies do not fight each other. Now, as the Clinton administration strives to replace the goals of the Cold War with a "pro-democracy" foreign policy, the desire for a shared peace among democracies is becoming one of the most urgent concerns not only of the United States but of the entire international community. In this original and far-reaching study of the relevant issues, Russett discusses instances of "democratic peace" from preindustrial societies through ancient Greece through the modern international system of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His account reveals that the relative peace between democracies is due not to their wealth, their alliances, and their distance from each other, but to the norms and strategies characteristic of democracy-to-democracy relationships. By illuminating the conflict-resolving mechanisms inherent in these relationships, he explains one of the most promising developments of the modern international system: the striking fact that the democracies that it comprises have almost never fought each other. This profound work not only addresses a broad audience of scholars and policy professionals but also reaches outside the professional debate to engage other readers who are also seriously interested in the new administration's foreign policy and in international relations are generally. It promises to become the major text of the continuing dialogue on whether and how a "democratic peace" may finally be achieved
World politics : the menu for choice by Bruce M Russett( Book )

96 editions published between 1935 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book first] explores the analytical dimensions of world politics, introducing the student to the modern study of world politics, as organized according to .. six levels of analysis ... world system, interstate relations, society, government, roles, and the individual. It also introduces and develops on of [the book's] unifying themes ... that actors' decisions are constrained by the set of options presented by both global and domestic conditions. [The book] examines international conflict and cooperation, covering domestic and interstate war, armament and disarmament, international law and organization, and the causes of power. [It next] is devoted to international political economy, including the political economy of national security and defense, economic interdependence, regional integration and globalization, and the North-South development gap. [Finally], the book is oriented toward the future, with a chapter on global ecology and the capacity of planet Earth to sustain a burgeoning human population, plus a concluding chapter that examines three scenarios for world politics in the twenty-first century.-Pref
No clear and present danger; a skeptical view of the United States entry into World War II by Bruce M Russett( Book )

21 editions published between 1972 and 2018 in English and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Preface to the Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition:This was a controversial book, and likely remains so.? The world 25 years later looks quite different. With the end of the Cold War, the United States is now the world's only superpower. If this country cannot shape the international system and bring peace and stability to much of the world, surely no other state can. Yet the will to a broadly internationalist foreign policy cannot currently be found in the United States. The near-consensus that ranged across foreign policy elites before the Vietnam War has never been restored. Maybe that's just as well. But I hold to much of the basic perspective of this book as offering some guidance for fellow?cooperative internationalists.? The power to shape international affairs is limited; military intervention is a costly, blunt, and dangerous instrument. The five questions I ask on page 108 of this book remain appropriate. I do believe there are appropriate circumstances for military action in international affairs. In most circumstances I do not believe that it is desirable, effective, or just to try to spread democracy or other American values by force of arms. Much more could be done by way of financial assistance as well as consistent ideological and technical support to create a more democratic and interdependent environment within which peace can be secured.? If the Vietnam War derived in substantial part from an overconfident and unilateral interpretation of history, that is a mistake from which we can still learn."--Provided by publisher

Why does the academic study of international relations have limited impact on the policy community?
