America's misadventures in the Middle East by Chas W Freeman( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's Misadventures in the Middle East leads off with Freeman's detailed reflection on President George H.W. Bush's handling of Iraq-Kuwait crisis of 1990-91. He was U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia at the time and was uniquely placed to see and understand what Washington and key allies were doing. Freeman reflects on "the American way of war", and in particular on Washington's failure in recent decades to plan for a stable and satisfactory political end-state for wars it wages. The rest of the book focuses on Washington's continued pursuit of "the American way of war" in the Middle East of the 2000's. Freeman reflects on the failures at many levels that pulled President George W. Bush into the disastrous decision to invade Iraq. And he stresses the deleterious impact that Washington's failure to hold Israel accountable for the violent policies it pursued toward its neighbors throughout the 2000's has had on Americans' interests in the Middle East. He assesses the impact that America's policy failings in the Middle East have had on its ability to continue leading the world in the same way it did in the half-century following the end of World War II. "Why not try diplomacy?" is the title of one chapter. Freeman gives us four deeply informed chapters about Saudi Arabia, placing the Kingdom's often misunderstood situation in its own historical context and in the context of its relationship with Western and other world powers. As Prof. William B. Quandt notes in his Foreword to the book: there is much to learn about "old-style" diplomacy here and much to regret that Freeman's views seem so "radical" from the perspective of today's politicized discourse. Readers of this volume will learn a great deal and will appreciate the style and the content of these essays--Publisher's description
America's continuing misadventures in the Middle East by Chas W Freeman( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ambassador Chas W. Freeman Jr. is one of America's most brilliant and experienced diplomats and an outspoken advocate of diplomacy and other measures short of war to address international problems. In the first installment of this work, he trenchantly described the challenges he faced when, as U.S. Ambassador to Saudi Arabia in 1990, he worked with coalition partners to push Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. He also reflected on the origins of Washington's numerous intelligence failures in the Middle East, the American way of war , and Washington's consistent failure in recent decades to plan for termination and a stable political end-state for the wars it has so cavalierly launched. American's Continuing Misadventures in the Middle East is a revised and updated version of that earlier work. In it, Freeman deploys his customary insight and wit to look at the significance of the Israel-Palestine conflict, the complex consequences of the Arab Spring, the special role the Middle East plays in global affairs (and in U.S. strategy and politics), and the roles played in the region by China and other world powers
Asia's response to climate change and natural disasters : implications for an evolving regional architecture( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new report by energy, regional, and humanitarian disaster specialists at CSIS examines the politics of climate change in Asia, the region's response to natural disasters, and the implications for the future geometry of Asia's institutions and U.S. policy in the region. The assessment looks broadly at two areas of nontraditional security cooperation in Asia: (1) climate change, including the domestic political factors in Asia and the regional strategies for securing low-carbon pathways; and (2) regional approaches to disaster management. The volume draws on case studies to assess the utility of existing and emerging institutions--the promises as well as the problems--as the United States and the region seek greater cooperation on both traditional and nontraditional security challenges. The authors discuss the problems related to lack of coordination at different levels, the uncertain role of the military, and continuing gaps in resources and expertise in key organizations. Looking ahead, the authors conclude that the United States will continue to play a critical role in supporting the region's response to many of the natural disasters it will face. They also recommend that the United States seek to focus Asia's attention on the long-term threat of climate change and other slow-onset disasters. As the authors explain, not only is the region expected to be a major victim of the consequences of climate change, it is a source of the threat itself. They recommend that the United States continue its bilateral and multilateral programs to increase energy efficiency and the use of alternative energy and clean-coal technology and that it also begin to explore broad, secure, low-carbon pathways within the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate."--Publisher description
