The character of nations : how politics makes and breaks prosperity, family, and civility by Angelo M Codevilla( )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Polish and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new cross-cultural study, Angelo M. Codevilla illustrates that as people shape their governments, they shape themselves. Drawing broadly from the sweep of history, from the Roman republic to de Tocqueville's America, as well as from personal and scholarly observations of the world in the twentieth century, The Character of Nations reveals remarkable truths about the effects of government on a society's economic arrangements, moral order, sense of family life, and ability to defend itself
Advice to war presidents : a remedial course in statecraft by Angelo Codevilla( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of Woodrow Wilson's successors, only the first three escaped the role of war president. While these leaders have committed America to the pursuit of peace, they have involved us in seemingly endless wars. The American foreign policy establishment's several "schools" have jointly misguided our presidents with myths that have worsened these conflicts: that foreign peoples always share American ideals; that peace is simply the absence of conflict rather than the tenuous result of victories; that diplomacy is a substitute for force; and that wealth is everyone's overriding goal. Our establishment's very language obscures reality. The result is that even as American forces win battle after battle, we leave ourselves and the world less secure." "In Advice to War Presidents, Boston University professor Angelo M. Codevilla offers a primer on the essential principles of international relations. Drawing on the ancient wisdom of figures such as Thucydides and Herodotus as well as modern leaders such as Winston Churchill, Codevilla argues that America has ignored these principles to the nation's peril."--Jacket

16 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thrilling World War II history and an expose of the shameful selling of historical truth and American foreign policy for political gain
To make and keep peace among ourselves and with all nations by Angelo Codevilla( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author Angelo Codevilla asks, What is to be America's peace? How is it to be won and preserved in our time? He notes that our government's increasingly unlimited powers flow in part from our statesmen's inability to stay out of wars or to win them and that our statesmen and academics have ceased to think about such things. The purpose of this book is to rekindle such thoughts. The author reestablishes early American statecraft's understanding of peace-what it takes to make it and what it takes to keep it. He reminds Americans why our founding generation placed the pursuit of peace ahead of all
War : ends and means by Paul Seabury( Book )

19 editions published between 1989 and 2006 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A student's guide to international relations by Angelo Codevilla( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""These slim volumes come close to constituting mini-great books in themselves."--Wall Street Journal" "Terrorist attacks, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the rise of China, and the decline of Europe have underscored the necessity of understanding the world around us. But how should we approach this crucial but often misunderstood topic? What do we need to know about the international order and America's role in it?" "A Student's Guide to International Relations provides a vital introduction to the geography, culture, and politics that make up the global environment. Angelo Codevilla, who has taught international relations at some of America's most prestitious universities, explains the history of the international system, the dominant schools of American statecraft, the instruments of power, contemporary geopolitics, and more. The content of international relations, he demonstrates, flows from the differences between our global village's peculiar neighborhoods." "This Witty and wise book helps make sense of a complex world." "The ISI Guides to the Major Disciplines are reader-friendly introductions to the most important fields of knowledge in the liberal arts. Written by leading scholars for both students and the general public, they will be appreciated by anyone desiring a reliable and informative tour of important subject matter. Each title offers a historical overview of a particular discipline, explains the central ideas of the subject, and evaluates the works of thinkers whose ideas have shaped our world. These guides will aid students seeking to make better decisions about their course of study as well as general readers who wish to supplement their education. All who treasure the world of ideas and liberal learning will be motivated by these original and stimulating presentations."--Jacket

The ruling class : how they corrupted America and what we can do about it by Angelo M Codevilla( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this profound and incisive work, Angelo M. Codevilla introduces readers to the Ruling Class, the group of bipartisan political elites who run America. This Ruling Class, educated at prestigious universities and convinced of its own superiority, has everything to gain by raising taxes and expanding the reach of government. This class maintains that it knows what is best and continually increases its power over every facet of American life, from family and marriage to the environment, guns, and God. It is becoming increasingly apparent that this Ruling Class does not represent the interests of the majority of Americans, who value self-rule and the freedom on whose promise America was founded. Millions of Americans are now reasserting our right to obey the Constitution, not the Ruling Class

No victory, no peace by Angelo M Codevilla( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both the George W. Bush administration and its Democratic critics have failed to formulate a plan for victory in the War On Terror, argues Codevilla (international relations, Boston University). As one example, he points out that trying to win any war simply by killing enemy soldiers is a bankrupt strategy. He began writing these eight essays in the fall of 2001, mostly for publication in the Claremont Review of Books, but delayed collecting them until after the 2004 election in order to
