Balkan tragedy : chaos and dissolution after the Cold War by Susan L Woodward ( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and and held by 2,034 libraries worldwide
Yugoslavia was well positioned at the end of the cold war to make a successful transition to a market economy and westernization. Yet two years later, the country had ceased to exist, and devastating local wars were being waged to create new states. Between the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 and the start of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in March 1992, the country moved toward disintegration at astonishing speed. In this book, Susan Woodward explains what happened to Yugoslavia and what can be learned from the response of outsiders to its crisis. Woodward's analysis is based on her first-hand experience before the country's collapse and then during the later stages of the Bosnian war as a member of the UN operation sent to monitor cease-fires and provide humanitarian assistance.

"These candid conversations capture the difficulties of reporting during crisis and war, particularly the tension between government and the press. The participants include distinguished journalists - American and foreign, print and broadcast - and prominent public officials, past and present. They illuminate the struggle to balance freedom of the press and the right to know with the need to protect sensitive information in the national interest. As the Information Age collides with the War on Terrorism, that challenge becomes even more critical and daunting."--Jacket.

Regionalism, multilateralism, and deeper integration by Robert Z Lawrence ( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,003 libraries worldwide
Over the past decade, international economic liberalization has been pursued through both multilateral and regional arrangements. In the Uruguay Round, more than one hundred governments pledged their commitment to greater open trade in goods and services, and established new rules under the enforcement of the World Trade Organization. At the same time, however, many regional arrangements have been negotiated - including the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Nonetheless, controversy still rages about these arrangements. Are regional arrangements stumbling blocks or, in fact, building blocks for a more integrated and successful international economy? In this book, part of the Brookings Integrating National Economies series, Robert Z. Lawrence addresses this question and explains both sides of the raging debate.
Brain gain : rethinking U.S. immigration policy by Darrell M West ( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 981 libraries worldwide
Many of America s greatest artists, scientists, investors, educators, and entrepreneurs have come from abroad. To stay competitive, the United States must institute more of an open-door policy to attract unique talents from other nations. Yet Americans resist such a policy despite their own immigrant histories and the substantial social, economic, intellectual, and cultural benefits of welcoming newcomers. The seeming irrationality of U.S. immigration policy arises from a variety of interrelated factors: particularistic politics and fragmented institutions, public concern regarding education and employment, anger over taxes and social services, and ambivalence about national identity, culture, and language. Darrell West asserts that public discourse tends to emphasize the perceived negatives. Fear too often trumps optimism and reason. Reconceptualizing immigration as a way to enhance innovation and competitiveness, the author notes, will help us find the next Albert Einstein.
