Defeating the jihadists : a blueprint for action : the report of a task force by Richard A Clarke( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international jihadist network of radical Islamic terrorist groups is far more extensive than just al Qaeda, and it has conducted twice as many attacks in the three years since September 11, 2001 as it did in the three years prior to that date. This addresses the nation's successes and failures on homeland security and calls for stronger, more effective strategy for dealing with jihadists, including al Qaeda. The report offers a detailed action plan for neutralizing the international movement at the core of worldwide terrorism. The report also describes the nature of the jihadist threat; provides comprehensive profiles of the various jihadist groups; and offers a rationale for the effort and money that would be needed to make the plan a success. The plan presented in the report builds on the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission and serves as a road map for winning the war against the jihadists

America's mission : the United States and the worldwide struggle for democracy in the twentieth century by Tony Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's Mission argues that the global strength and prestige of democracy today are due in large part to America's impact on international affairs. Tony Smith documents the extraordinary history of how American foreign policy has been used to try to promote democracy worldwide, an effort that enjoyed its greatest triumphs in the occupations of Japan and Germany but suffered huge setbacks in Latin America, Vietnam, and elsewhere. With new chapters and a new introduction and epilogue, this expanded edition also traces U.S. attempts to spread democracy more recently, under presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama, and assesses America's role in the Arab Spring
Calming the Ferghana Valley : development and dialogue in the heart of Central Asia : report of the Ferghana Valley Working Group of the Center for Preventive Action by Nancy Lubin( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This case study of the Ferghana Valley by the working group of the Centre for Preventive Action assesses the potential of conflict in Central Asia and offers recommendations for conflict prevention in this region. The Ferghana Valley intersects Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan and includes a mix of ethnic, religious and social groups. The key premise of the project is that tensions in Central Asia stem partly from these schisms and also from a range of other factors like economic and political, environmental, organized crime and security, all of which have long proved incendiary in this region. A long term strategy of conflict prevention would require region-wide policies towards Central Asia as well as policies focused on the Freghana Valley

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Last year, the Supreme Court reached an even more monumental decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, further inhibiting what Congress can do to regulate campaigns. That unwelcome development prompted the Brennan Center to join forces again with The Century Foundation to publish a new collection of essays, this time focused on Citizens United. Although we are clearly fighting an uphill battle ... we remain convinced that the influence of money on American democracy denigrates the integrity of the republic"--Foreword, p. vii

Afghanistan : negotiating peace : the report of the Century Foundation international task force on Afghanistan in its regional and multilateral dimensions by Lakhdar Brahimi( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stalemate has been reached in the war in Afghanistan and the time to begin the political process to end the fighting is now, according to this report. Co-opting the Taliban to join the regime in Kabul is unlikely to bring peace; reconciliation with all the insurgents will eventually require a broader political framework to end the war. International involvement will be necessary, and the withdrawal of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force will almost certainly be an essential component of a settlement. Enforcing a settlement will most likely require UN peacekeeping troops, and winning the peace will require the active involvement of international institutions and development agencies, particularly the World Bank and Asian Development Bank. In addition, the involvement of Pakistan and other neighbors of Afghanistan will be essential
Japan rising : the resurgence of Japanese power and purpose by Kenneth B Pyle( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Japan Rising, Kenneth B. Pyle explores the remarkable history of Japan's shifting foreign policy over the last 150 years. He identifies the common threads that bind the divergent strategies of modern Japan, arguing that few countries in recent history have been as responsive to the forces of the international environment. As we enter the new century and Japan once again changes course, the implications for our alliance and the balance of power in Asia are huge. Japan Rising is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how Japan arrived at this moment - and what to expect in the future."--Jacket
Dead men ruling : how to restore fiscal freedom and rescue our future by C. Eugene Steuerle( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Dead Men Ruling, C. Eugene Steuerle argues that these seemingly separable economic and political problems are actually symptoms of a common disease, one unique to our time. Unless that disease and the history of how it spread over time is understood, Steuerle says, it is easy for politicians and voters alike to fall prey to believing in simple but ineffective nostrums, hoping that a cure lies merely in switching political parties or reducing the deficit or protecting and expanding our favorite program
