After victory : institutions, strategic restraint, and the rebuilding of order after major wars by G. John Ikenberry( Book )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The end of the Cold War was a "big bang" reminiscent of earlier moments after major wars, such as the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 and the end of the World Wars in 1919 and 1945. Here John Ikenberry asks the question, what do states that win wars do with their newfound power and how do they use it to build order? In examining the postwar settlements in modern history, he argues that powerful countries do seek to build stable and cooperative relations, but the type of order that emerges hinges on their ability to make commitments and restrain power. The author explains that only with the spread of democracy in the twentieth century and the innovative use of international institutions--both linked to the emergence of the United States as a world power--has order been created that goes beyond balance of power politics to exhibit "constitutional" characteristics. The open character of the American polity and a web of multilateral institutions allow the United States to exercise strategic restraint and establish stable relations among the industrial democracies despite rapid shifts and extreme disparities in power. Blending comparative politics with international relations, and history with theory, After Victory will be of interest to anyone concerned with the organization of world order, the role of institutions in world politics, and the lessons of past postwar settlements for today. It also speaks to today's debate over the ability of the United States to lead in an era of unipolar power.--Publisher description
Liberal leviathan : the origins, crisis, and transformation of the American world order by G. John Ikenberry( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the second half of the twentieth century, the United States engaged in the most ambitious and far-reaching liberal order building the world had yet seen. This liberal international order has been one of the most successful in history in providing security and prosperity to more people. But in the last decade, the American-led order has been troubled. Some argue that the Bush administration, with its war on terror, invasion of Iraq, and unilateral orientation, undermined this liberal order. Others argue that we are witnessing the end of the American era. Liberal Leviathan engages these debates. G. John Ikenberry argues that the crisis that besets the American-led order is a crisis of authority. A political struggle has been ignited over the distribution of roles, rights, and authority within the liberal international order. But the deeper logic of liberal order remains alive and well. The forces that have triggered this crisis--the rise of non-Western states such as China, contested norms of sovereignty, and the deepening of economic and security interdependence--have resulted from the successful functioning and expansion of the postwar liberal order, not its breakdown. The liberal international order has encountered crises in the past and evolved as a result. It will do so again. Ikenberry provides the most systematic statement yet about the theory and practice of the liberal international order, and a forceful message for policymakers, scholars, and general readers about why America must renegotiate its relationship with the rest of the world and pursue a more enlightened strategy--that of the liberal leviathan."--Jacket

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Was George W. Bush the true heir of Woodrow Wilson, the architect of liberal internationalism? Was the Iraq War a result of liberal ideas about America's right to promote democracy abroad? In this timely book, four distinguished scholars of American foreign policy discuss the relationship between the ideals of Woodrow Wilson and those of George W. Bush. The Crisis of American Foreign Policy exposes the challenges resulting from Bush's foreign policy and ponders America's place in the international arena."--Jacket

The nation-state in question( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Has globalization forever undermined the state as the mighty guarantor of public welfare and security? In the 1990s, the prevailing and even hopeful view was that it had. The euphoria did not last long. Today the "return of the state" is increasingly being discussed as a desirable reality. This book is the first to bring together a group of prominent scholars from comparative politics, international relations, and sociology to systematically reassess--through a historical lens that moves beyond the standard focus on the West--state-society relations and state power at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The contributors examine the sources and forms of state power in light of a range of welfare and security needs in order to tell us what states can do today. They assess the extent to which international social forces affect states, and the capacity of states to adapt in specific issue areas. Their striking conclusion is that states have continued to be pivotal in diverse areas such as nationalism, national security, multiculturalism, taxation, and industrial relations. Offering rich insights on the changing contours of state power, The Nation-State in Question will be of interest to social scientists, students, and policymakers alike

This is an edited volume that examines the US-Japan security alliance, the key to US-Japanese relations since the end of US occupation in the 50s.

This book brings American and Japanese specialists together to examine the alliance within the wider regional environment and to determine whether and how the bilateral alliance can evolve and remain at the core of the region's security order
State power and world markets : the international political economy by Joseph M Grieco( Book )

This text should provide students with a challenging but accessible overview of the main issues and dynamics of the international political economy.

Going beyond economic principles, this text incorporates historical background and contemporary issues, revealing how think-tank theory and real power politics comine to shape the global economy
The United States and Northeast Asia : debates, issues, and new order( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since World War II, the United States has played a crucial role in shaping Northeast Asian politics and economics. However, the Cold War's demise, September 11, and America's major strategic realignments have unleashed seismic changes in the region. China's rise, Japan's quest for a normal state, and the North Korean nuclear quagmire are also potential flash points. Collective memories of past aggression and resurgent nationalism further complicate regional dynamics. But hopeful signs abound, as deepening economic interdependence, expanding social and cultural exchanges, and the proliferation of informal economic, social, and cultural networks have improved chances for a peaceful evolution to a liberal and stable region--Publisher's description

The troubled triangle : economic and security concerns for the United States, Japan, and China by G. John Ikenberry( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The US, China, and Japan form a 'troubled triangle, ' with each country negotiating its foreign policy toward the other two in response to economic and security pressures that operate as an interrelated duality. Written by international relations experts, this book examines how the three countries respond to this set of pressures and to each other. The Troubled Triangle: Economic and Security Concerns for The United States, Japan and China examines how the three largest economies of the world weave triangulated relationships to one another atop uneasy foundations. The crux of the instability lies in the dissonance between economic allure and security thrust. Economic allure exists for each of the three nations, respectively, in the United States' global currency, Japan's high technology, and China's manufacturing factory and market. Security thrust means that the United States has primacy, Japan has alliance and China seeks autonomy. Drawn from the three countries' most renowned experts on the subject, this collective volume presents a balanced and well-contextualized analysis of the troubled triangle
