War by other means : geoeconomics and statecraft by Robert D Blackwill( )

19 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A book about how nations use economic instruments to pursue geopolitical objectives. From Russia's coercive economic pressure on Ukraine, in Europe, and in Central Asia; to the steady sums of money that Gulf monarchies have extended to the Egyptian government following the ouster of President Morsi; to the varied economic retributions that China has dealt along its periphery amid tensions in the South and East China Seas--states are increasingly waging geopolitics with capital, attempting with sovereign checkbooks and other economic tools to achieve foreign policy objectives once the target of military coercion or conquest. For many countries, the theater of foreign policy engagement is predominantly markets. Today's leaders are as or more likely to air disagreements with foreign policies through restrictions on trade, or the buying and selling of debt, as through military activities. Not the United States. For Washington policymakers, vital national interests are still defined and pursued largely in political-military terms, a framework that sacrifices the power and potential of economics and finance as instruments of state purpose. This book aims to advance a comprehensive understanding of how states are applying economic instruments to advance geopolitical ends--a brand of statecraft the authors term geoeconomics--and what today's geoeconomic practices imply for how the United States in particular should think about and conduct its foreign affairs."--Provided by publisher
Revising U.S. grand strategy toward China by Robert D Blackwill( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because the American effort to 'integrate' China into the liberal international order has now generated new threats to U.S. primacy in Asia, and could result in a consequential challenge to American power globally, Washington needs a new grand strategy toward China that centers on balancing the rise of Chinese power rather than continuing to assist its ascendancy. The authors argue that such a strategy is designed to limit the dangers that China's geoeconomic and military power pose to U.S. national interests in Asia and globally, even as the United States and its allies maintain diplomatic and economic interactions with China

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

O'Sullivan, and Ray Takeyh-on the issues and contingencies surrounding Iran's nuclear program, including sanctions, negotiations, U.S. and Israeli military options, regime change, and how to deal with a latent or actual Iranian nuclear weapons capability. This volume presents one of the clearest pictures of Iran's nuclear program to date, along with the various policy options available to the United States and others and their potential consequences

The future of transatlantic relations : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Robert D Blackwill( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Notable opportunities presently exist for the U.S.-European relationship to help mold the next century's international system."--BOOK JACKET. "The prescriptions contained in this Independent Task Force Report, The Future of Transatlantic Relations, seek to intensify such a partnership. Some reinforce current administration policy, especially with respect to European security and political economy. Some policy suggestions go against administration policies, particularly outside Europe. The entire thrust of the report's ambitious prescriptions, however, requires more vigorous and active presidential and congressional leadership than has often been seen in recent years. The most important departure from present U.S. policy is the report's emphasis on drawing Europe over time much further into a global strategic partnership with the United States to help shape the new era."--BOOK JACKET. "This Task Force, chaired by Robert D. Blackwill of the John F. Kennedy School of Government and an Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, included a highly diverse and experienced group of American and European policymakers, diplomats, analysts, and business and opinion leaders."--Jacket

Xi Jinping on the global stage : Chinese foreign policy under a powerful but exposed leader by Robert D Blackwill( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Xi Jinping is the most powerful Chinese leader since Deng Xiaoping, and with his sweeping actions and ambitious directives he has fundamentally altered the process by which China's domestic and foreign policy is formulated and implemented. Xi's popular anticorruption campaign has cowed senior party and military officials and allowed him to amass dominating power in a short span of time. With this transcending authority, Xi has ended China's carefully evolved collective and consensual leadership structure, marginalized the bureaucracy, and put himself at the center of decision-making on all consequential matters. This report discusses Xi's transformation of China's domestic politics, his background and beliefs, the challenges he faces from China's slowing economy, and the implications of his foreign policy for the United States"--
Repairing the U.S.-Israel relationship by Robert D Blackwill( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Significant policy differences over issues in the Middle East, as well as changing demographics and politics within both the United States and Israel, have pushed the two countries apart. Blackwill, a former senior official in the Bush administration, and Gordon, a former senior official in the Obama administration, call for 'a deliberate and sustained effort by policymakers and opinion leaders in both countries' to repair the relationship and to avoid divisions 'that no one who cares about Israel's security or America's values and interests in the Middle East should want' ... Drawing on their foreign policy experience in both Republican and Democratic administrations, they propose six policy prescriptions to repair and sustain the relationship in the two countries' mutual interest "--Publisher's web site
Containing Russia : how to respond to Moscow's intervention in U.S. democracy and growing geopolitical challenge by Robert D Blackwill( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election constituted an attack on American democracy. The report also makes clear that this attempt by Russia to interfere with American democracy did not take place in a vacuum. To the contrary, it was and is part of a larger political and geopolitical effort designed by Russian President Vladimir Putin "to weaken the United States, divide it from its European allies, and expand Russian influence in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and beyond." The authors are unsparing in their assessment of how the current and previous American presidents and their administrations have dealt with the Russian e ort to a ect the U.S. election, describing their responses as "limited and ine ective." The authors advocate addi- tional measures to better protect U.S. society, punish Russia, and deter Russia and others from continuing to directly interfere in the workings of democracies
Trump's foreign policies are better than they seem by Robert D Blackwill( )

2 editions published in 2019 in Undetermined and English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Donald J. Trump's actions have often been rash, ignorant, and chaotic. But an automatic dismissal of President Trump's foreign policy is too simple. It lacks a careful examination of Trump's and his administration's objectives, strategies, and policies; their connections to U.S. national interests; or their actual successes and failures. What matters most is the effectiveness of U.S. policy over time and its consistency with U.S. national interests, not the personal qualities of its leaders. This Council Special Report by Robert D. Blackwill examines in detail Trump's actions in a turbulent world in important policy areas, including the United States' relationships with its allies, its relationships with China and Russia, and its policies on the Middle East and climate change. This report acknowledges the persuasive points of Trump's critics, but at the same time seeks to perform exacting autopsies on their less convincing critiques. It then gives a grade to each of the president's major foreign policies. Finally, this report comes to a net assessment of the overall quality of the Trump administration's foreign policy halfway through his first term
Implementing grand strategy toward China: twenty-two U. S. policy prescriptions by Robert D Blackwill( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author contends that neither the United States nor China will be able to maintain or establish primacy in Asia. Instead, in order to uphold stability in the region the United States will need to balance China’s growing power while simultaneously maintaining the ability to work with the country to address common challenges, such as climate change and nuclear proliferation. This relationship will require that both countries do more to respect each other’s vital national interests, a concept that the author defines with precision. It will also place a premium on effective statecraft. As the title promises, Blackwill presents no less than twenty-two policy prescriptions. All are predicated on his belief that “to preserve a crucial U.S. role in shaping the global system remains the central objective of U.S. grand strategy in the twenty-first century.” His proposals begin domestically, with emphasis on reforms to better compete with China, such as modernizing America’s infrastructure, improving its education system, and working creatively to harness next-generation technologies. He then lists changes the United States should make to its foreign policy, from spending fewer resources on the Middle East, to improving ties with allies in Asia and Europe, shifting military resources to Asia, and seeking a more constructive relationship with Russia
Stopping the decline in US-Russian relations by Robert D Blackwill( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

U.S.-Russian relations are poised to resume their drift toward mutual alienation in the face of NATO enlargement. Failure to halt the downward spiral soon will jeopardize arms control regimes and erode U.S.-Russian nonproliferation cooperation. If relations are to improve, the initiative will have to come from the American side. The authors state that the United States should broaden the context of enlargement so as to emphasize Russia's legitimate security interests and a role in managing European security. It should pursue an agreement on a NATO-Russian charter to institutionalize NATO-Russian security concerns. If some of the heat can be taken out of the NATO enlargement issue, it is possible the Russian leadership might come to support START II if modifications and incentives were forthcoming. The authors suggest a variety of ways to fix the Conventional Forces in Europe treaty to lower ceiling levels. The goal should be to move quickly, recognizing that June-July will bring the enlargement invitations
