India at the global high table : the quest for regional primacy and strategic autonomy by Teresita C Schaffer( )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent decades, India has grown as a global power, and has been able to pursue its own goals in its own way. Negotiating for India's Global Role gives an insightful and integrated analysis of India's ability to manage its evolving role. Former ambassadors Teresita and Howard Schaffer shine a light on the country's strategic vision, foreign policy, and the negotiating behavior that links the two. The four concepts woven throughout the book offer an exploration of India today: its exceptionalism; nonalignment and the drive for "strategic autonomy;" determination to maintain regional primacy; and, more recently, its surging economy. With a specific focus on India's stellar negotiating practice, Negotiating for India's Global Role is a unique, comprehensive understanding of India as an emerging international power player, and the choices it will face between its classic view of strategic autonomy and the desirability of finding partners in the fast-evolving world"--
Chester Bowles : new dealer in the Cold War by Howard B Schaffer( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Harry Truman named him ambassador to India in 1951, Chester Bowles was already a prominent figure in American public life - a onetime advertising mogul, wartime administrator, governor of Connecticut - and yet his past hardly presaged the turn his path would take in Asia. Over the next two decades, at home and abroad, Bowles would become one of the leading liberal lights in American foreign policy, a New Dealer often at odds with the stiffening cold war conservatism of his time, His biography is also the story of America finding its place in a changing world, a story of remarkable relevance to our own post-cold war era. Howard Schaffer, a former ambassador and seasoned Foreign Service officer, worked closely with Bowles in India and Washington and is able to offer a colorful firsthand portrayal of the man, as well as an insider's view of American foreign policy in the making. Bowles's indefatigable energy, inspired idealism, and humanitarian instincts leave their mark on these pages - as do his stubbornness, his cultural blinders, and his failure to master the game of bureaucratic politics. We see him in his sometimes exhilarating and ultimately frustrating struggle to influence the leaders and policy makers of his day - as twice ambassador to India, Democratic party foreign policy spokesman, congressman from Connecticut, foreign policy adviser to John F. Kennedy, under secretary to Dean Rusk at the State Department, and President Kennedy's special adviser on Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Drawing on a wealth of documents and interviews with some of the nation's top foreign policy makers in the post-World War II years, Schaffer shows us Bowles in his tireless attempt to advance an alternative approach to international relations during those decades, one defined less in military than in economic terms, focused less on the struggle for power with the Soviet Union in Europe than on the contest with China over the fate of Third World countries. "Only the historians can determine who was right and who was wrong," Dean Rusk once said of Bowles's ideas and convictions - and today history itself is writing the last word
How Pakistan negotiates with the United States : riding the roller coaster by Howard B Schaffer( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over sixty years, Pakistan-U.S. relations have been marked by close cooperation and deep bilateral estrangement. Much of the negotiations story underscores remarkable resilience, but also vulnerability and volatility of the relationship. Throughout Cold War and continuing after 9/11, Pakistan's location has shaped a relationship of mutual interest and asymmetrical goals. The United States views Pakistan as a strategic partner in achieving global security goals; Pakistan looks to United States as a counterweight to India and its neighbors. This book analyzes themes, techniques, and styles that have characterized Pakistani negotiations with American civilian and military officials since Pakistan's independence. Drawing from their diplomatic experience, authors Teresita and Howard Schaffer examine how Pakistan's ideological core, geopolitical position, culture, and military and governmental structures shape negotiations with United States. The authors address process by which the two governments reach formal agreements, but also overall conduct of official U.S.-Pakistani dialogue, informal processes that have shaped their diplomatic relationship, and periodic involvement of the United States in Pakistani domestic politics. This book offers lessons and advice for U.S. officials on how to negotiate most effectively with Pakistan--Publisher's description
