Empires by Michael W Doyle ( Book )
25 editions published between 1985 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The analysis of the causes and patterns of imperialism has long been a difficult academic exercise. ... To structure this far-ranging phenomenon and arrange its course in a concise, interpretive essay takes pluck, if a good adjective from the derring-do novels of empire may be used here. Michael W. Doyle had that pluck and has succeeded remarkably well in his task. This is a splendid essay, an effective combination of broad historical analysis and well-presented theoretical assessments derived from the social sciences. The book will no doubt stand as one of the best contemporary syntheses of the progress of imperialism. ... Doyle has read widely and well. He has mastered his material and has done with it something masterly: he has made the whole more than the sum of the parts. What follows next from the lively mind of this scholar will be pleasantly anticipated."--American Historical Review

Striking first : preemption and prevention in international conflict by Michael W Doyle ( Book )
13 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Striking First, Michael Doyle shows how the Bush Doctrine has consistently disregarded a vital distinction in international law between acts of preemption in the face of imminent threats and those of prevention in the face of the growing offensive capability of an enemy. Taking a close look at the Iraq war, the 1998 attack against al Qaeda in Afghanistan, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, among other conflicts, he contends that international law must rely more completely on United Nations Charter procedures and develop better standards for dealing with serious threats. After explaining how the UN can again play an important role in enforcing international law and strengthening international guidelines for responding to threats, he describes the rare circumstances when unilateral action is indeed necessary. Based on the 2006 Tanner Lectures at Princeton University, Striking First includes responses by distinguished political theorists Richard Tuck and Jeffrey McMahan and international law scholar Harold Koh, yielding a lively debate that will redefine how - and for what reasons - tomorrow's wars are fought."--BOOK JACKET

Lacking that societal support, how are Americans supposed to age well -- to grow older with grace and understanding -- and make life's final decades a meaningful experience?
