The strategy of campaigning : lessons from Ronald Reagan and Boris Yeltsin by Bruce Bueno de Mesquita( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Strategy of Campaigning explores the political careers of Ronald Reagan and Boris Ye1tsin, two of the most galvanizing and often controversial political figures of our time. Both men overcame defeat early in their political careers and rose to the highest elected offices in their respective countries. The authors demonstrate how and why Reagan and Yeltsin succeeded in their political aspirations, despite - or perhaps because of - their apparent "policy extremism": that is, their advocacy of policy positions far from the mainstream. The book analyzes the viability of policy extremism as a political strategy that enables candidates to forge new coalitions and outflank conventional political allegiances."--Jacket

Turning points in ending the Cold War by Kiron K Skinner( )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1983, U.S.-Soviet relations appeared to be in an uncontrollable free fall. It was the year Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union an "evil empire," announced the Strategic Defense Initiative, and obtained permission from Western European governments to deploy intermediate nuclear forces (INF) on their soil. The Soviet government retaliated by walking out of the INF and Strategic Arms Reductions Talks. Yet, just two years later, Reagan and new Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev held their first summit and jointly declared that "a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought." Between 1988 and 1991, peaceful revolutions spread throughout Eastern Europe as the Warsaw Pact nations embraced democracy. These historic events defied widespread expectations, as many experts expected the cold war to end with a nuclear war. Why were they proved wrong?" "The essays in this collection offer illuminating insights into the key players - Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, and others - and the monumental events that led to the collapse of communism. The expert contributors examine the end of detente and the beginning of the new phase of the cold war in the early 1980s, Reagan's radical new strategies aimed at changing Soviet behavior, the peaceful democratic revolutions in Poland and Hungary, the events that brought about the reunification of Germany, the role of events in Third World countries, the critical contributions of Gorbachev and Yeltsin, and more."--Jacket

Stories in his own hand : the everyday wisdom of Ronald Reagan by Ronald Reagan( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent discovery of a trove of manuscripts handwritten by Ronald Reagan in the years just before his presidency -- partially published in the New York Times bestseller Reagan, In His Own Hand -- has dramatically revised our understanding of his political vision and acumen. Yet the scope of these Reagan manuscripts was not limited to just political and policy essays. Our 40th president also wrote a fascinating and never-before-seen set of stories -- partly inspirational, partly heartwarming, partly sentimental, and all very deeply felt. Stories in His Own Hand offers a unique lens into the character of Ronald Reagan, through his tales about women, life and death, relationships, his youth, and many other subjects, from virtues and values, to race relations, to his favorite jokes. - Jacket

Executive and Congressional use of security linkage during the late 1970s by Kiron K Skinner( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates when and how the U.S. Congress and the executive branch of government used security linkage during the late 1970s, the period in which U.S.-Soviet detente unraveled. This paper challenges the conventional wisdom that U.S. officials primarily invoked security linkage to affect Soviet international behavior. A close review of the historical record shows that U.S. security linkage was as much about the domestic politics of national defense as it was about Soviet malfeasance. Patterns of security linkage are also discerned. While members of Congress have tended to establish a tight or tactical link between issues, executive officials have generally connected issues in a contextual or diffuse manner. Domestic politics, too, account for the difference in executive and congressional use of security linkage. Finally, this paper argues that understanding when and how the United States used security linkage during the late 1970s is of policy significance in the contemporary context. The Clinton administration has been faced with pressures to use a variety of economic and security levers in interaction with the People's Republic of China, North Korea, and Russia. The lessons of U.S.-Soviet security linkage may help the current administration to avoid some of the pitfalls of linkage diplomacy
Reagan's path to victory : the shaping of ronald reagan's vision by Annelise Graebner Anderson( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last years of Ronald Reagan's life, his voluminous writings on politics, policy, and people finally emerged and offered a Rosetta stone by which to understand him. From 1975 to 1979, in particular, he delivered more than 1,000 radio addresses, of which he wrote at least 680 himself. When drafts of his addresses were first discovered, and a selection was published in 2001 as Reagan, In His Own Hand by the editors of this book, they caused a sensation by revealing Reagan as a prolific and thoughtful writer, who covered a wide variety of topics and worked out the agenda that would drive his presidency. What was missed in that thematic collection, however, was the development of his ideas over time. Now, in Reagan's Path to Victory, a chronological selection of more than 300 addresses with historical context supplied by the editors, readers can see how Reagan reacted to the events that defined the Carter years and how he honed his message in the crucial years before his campaign officially began. The late 1970s were tumultuous times. In the aftermath of Vietnam and Watergate, America's foreign and domestic policies were up for grabs. Reagan argued against the Panama Canal treaties, in vain; against the prevailing view that the Vietnam War was an ignoble enterprise from the start; against dEtente with the Soviet Union; against the growth of regulation; and against the tax burden. Yet he was fundamentally an optimist, who presented positive, values-based prescriptions for the economy and for Soviet relations. He told many inspiring stories; he applauded charities and small businesses that worked to overcome challenges. As Reagan's Path to Victory unfolds, Reagan's essays reveal a presidential candidate who knew himself and knew his positions, who presented a stark alternative to an incumbent administration, and who knew how to reach out and touch voters directly. Reagan's Path to Victory is nothing less than a president's campaign playbook, in his own words

Renewing globalization and economic growth in a post-crisis world : the future of the G-20 agenda( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To present a vision for a new global economy that will determine the future G-20 agenda, the Atlantic Council, Carnegie Mellon University, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have gathered top minds from academia, business, and the policy community for a one-day conference in Pittsburgh. A number of these individuals were commissioned to write brief policy papers to identify the central goals and challenges in designing a new global economy, and the measures needed to meet them. Their essays address the topics covered by the G-20 working groups but also identify social, cultural, economic, political, and technological components of globalization that the G-20 must consider in the years ahead."--Page 6
