Power rules : how common sense can rescue American foreign policy by Leslie H Gelb ( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leading foreign policy expert Gelb offers guidelines on how American power actually works and should be wielded in today's tumultuous world. He argues that Washington risks losing the essential lifeblood of its national security--its power--unless American leaders relearn the lessons of how to use that power. The United States remains far and away the most powerful country in a world where power remains sharply pyramidal. But the U.S. is not the dominant power, and it can't dictate to others. Gelb persuasively shows that America's future power must be based on the principle of mutual indispensability: Washington is the indispensable leader because it alone can galvanize coalitions to solve major international problems (and all nations know this), while other key nations are indispensable partners in getting the job done. The reality is this: succeed together or fail apart.--From publisher description

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leslie Gelb served in the Defense Department in the late 1960s and later worked as a correspondent for the New York Times. He describes tensions within the Defense Department and recalls Robert McNamara's 1967 testimony that the bombing of North Vietnam was not working as a turning point. He discusses how America's lack of knowledge about Vietnam and its people shaped diplomacy. Finally, he describes inaccurate calculations on the part of General Westmoreland and how the Pentagon measured military success. -- taken from Open Vault WGBH Media Library and Archives

"The United States is declining as a nation and a world power.

Quelling the Teacup Wars. The New World's Constant Challenge ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper attempts to define the new core problem in post-Cold War politics that a new US strategy must address. It looks at the main elements of containment and argues that deterring the possibility of a Russia once again bent on dominating Eurasia should not be at the heart of Western strategy; the core problem, however, is a steady run of civil wars sundering fragile but functioning nation-states and gnawing at the well-being of stable nations: the failure to deal adequately with such a challenge corrodes the essence of a democratic society.--SCAD summary
