The cheating culture : why more Americans are doing wrong to get ahead by David Callahan( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2,067 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there have always been those who cut corners, the author shows that cheating on every level--from the highly publicized corporate scandals to Little League fraud--has risen dramatically in the last two decades. Why all the cheating? Why now? Callahan pins the blame on the dog-eat-dog economic climate of the past two decades. An unfettered market and unprecedented economic inequality have corroded our values, he argues--and ultimately threaten the level playing field so central to American democracy itself. Through revealing interviews and extensive data, he takes us on a gripping tour of cheating in America and offers a powerful argument for why it matters.--From publisher description

Unwinnable wars : American power and ethnic conflict by David Callahan( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, David Callahan offers a thorough history of ethnic conflicts both before and after the fall of Communism. He outlines the failures and successes of American diplomacy's haphazard approaches to this strife, and offers compelling evidence of the need for a consistent American policy toward ethnic conflict, a policy that should extend beyond the peace of individual countries to international trade, economics, the environment, and more. Callahan's sensible recommendations for how to predict and prevent ethnic conflicts - and intervene when necessary - will prove invaluable for all those interested in the global power of the United States in the next century."--Jacket

Between two worlds : realism, idealism, and American foreign policy after the cold war by David Callahan( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With Between Two Worlds, David Callahan, author of Dangerous Capabilities: Paul Nitze and the Cold War, has written a provocative analysis of one of the most critical issues facing our nation: what course America's foreign policy should take in the post-Cold War era. The fall of the Soviet Union and an upsurge in global violence have left American foreign policy adrift in recent years. Exhaustively researched and elegantly written, Between Two Worlds unravels a muddled debate to argue that the United States now faces a basic choice between the foreign-policy strategies of realism and idealism. Realists, still dominant in Washington even with the Cold War's end, are preoccupied with safeguarding global order by keeping U.S. forces deployed in Europe and Asia and by preparing to fight new enemies in the Third World. They insist that America must continue the production of weapons begun during the 1980s and maintain defense budgets at near-Cold War levels. Idealists, Callahan among them, bring a more hopeful view to reinventing foreign policy. Callahan mounts a sweeping critique of realism to show how policymakers may be exaggerating the threats confronting the United States. Updating the idealist tradition pioneered by Woodrow Wilson, Between Two Worlds argues that U.S. actions abroad can and should be guided by the values that Americans treasure at home. Callahan's bold strategy for overhauling America's foreign policy would use some funds now spent on defense for new efforts to help fledgling democracies, strengthen international institutions, and promote sustainable development in the Third World. A controversial look at current U.S. foreign policy and a blueprint for more effective American leadership into the twenty-first century, Between Two Worlds is a valuable contribution to one of the most urgent tasks facing us

Kindred spirits : Harvard Business School's extraordinary class of 1949 and how they transformed American business by David Callahan( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"They stormed the beaches of Normandy and the islands of the South Pacific, but the exceptional generation of Americans that won World War II also produced the greatest group of business leaders of the post-war era. Harvard Business School's class of 1949 consisted mostly of military veterans who came to Cambridge thanks to the GI Bill. Molded by the hardships of depression and war, few 49ers sought fabulous wealth as an end in itself. Their conscientious leadership would forever change the course of American business." "By the standards of the go-go '80s and '90s, and today's corporate scandals, the values that defined the 49ers seem quaint; that wealth is created patiently, without cutting corners; that successful companies are those that make real things of real value; that integrity is an end in itself; and that greed is not good." "Those values guided the 49ers to the pinnacle of business success. Leading 49ers helped orchestrate a profound transformation of business in the decades after World War II: The rise of consumer products and services as a key engine of growth; the growing role of technology in spurring innovation and profits; and creative changes on Wall Street that leveraged wealth in extraordinary ways. From the heights of power - 28 percent of the class retired as CEO or president of his company - the 49ers shaped trends in nearly every sector of American business." "Among the legendary figures of the Class of '49 are Marvin Traub, who turned Bloomingdale's into a fashion trendsetter; James Burke, who built Johnson & Johnson into a household name; Peter McColough, whose Xerox Corporation spearheaded the personal computer revolution; and William Ruane, who helped bring "value investing" to Wall Street, creating one of the most successful mutual funds of all time."--Jacket

The moral center : how progressives can unite America around our shared values by David Callahan( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nothing's the matter with Kansas: Americans voting their values are responding to a real moral crisis. And in this forceful follow-up to The Cheating Culture, David Callahan argues that the problems for most Americans are not abortion and gay marriage but rather issues that neither party is addressing-the selfishness that is careening out of control, the effect of our violent and consumerist culture on children, and our lack of a greater purpose. As Republicans veer into zealotry, liberals can find common ground with the moderate majority. But to alleviate the moral anxieties that drove GOP electoral victories they need a powerful new vision. In The Moral Center, Callahan articulates that vision and offers an escape from the dead-end culture war. With insights garnered from in-depth research and interviews, he examines some of our most polarized conflicts and presents unexpected solutions that lay out a new road map to the American center
The givers : wealth, power, and philanthropy in a new gilded age by David Callahan( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An inside look at the secretive world of elite philanthropists--and how they're quietly wielding ever more power to shape American life in ways both good and bad. While media attention focuses on famous philanthropists such as Bill Gates and Charles Koch, thousands of donors are at work below the radar promoting a wide range of causes. David Callahan charts the rise of these new power players and the ways they are converting the fortunes of a second Gilded Age into influence. He shows how this elite works behind the scenes on education, the environment, science, LGBT rights, and many other issues--with deep impact on government policy. Above all, he shows that the influence of the Givers is only just beginning, as new waves of billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg turn to philanthropy. Based on extensive research and interviews with countless donors and policy experts, this is not a brief for or against the Givers, but a fascinating investigation of a power shift in American society that has implications for us all"--

Trading up : win-win solutions to raise global living standards and ensure the success of American workers by David Callahan( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans are confused and anxious about trade and globalization. On the one hand, many voters fear for their jobs and living standards, worrying about rising competition from developing nations. On the other hand, many Americans see clear benefits from globalization, believe that the United States must engage in the global economy, and want poorer nations to develop. Trading Up offers a new framework for understanding and responding to this phenomenon--one that balances a commitment to markets and open trade with dramatic efforts to reduce inequities and insecurities.--Publisher description
