NATO's return to Europe : engaging Ukraine, Russia, and beyond by Stanley R Sloan( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATO's 2010 Strategic Concept officially broadened the alliance's mission beyond collective defense, reflecting a peaceful Europe and changes in alliance activities. NATO had become a facilitator of cooperative security arrangements, a crisis-manager even outside of Europe, and a liberal democratic club as much as a mutual-defense organization. However, Russia's aggressive annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its ongoing military support for Ukrainian separatists have dramatically altered the strategic environment and fundamentally called into question the liberal European security order. States bordering Russia, many of which are now NATO members, are worried, and the alliance is divided over assessments of Russia's behavior. The intent of this book is to explore the impact of Russia's new assertiveness, particularly in Ukraine, on the NATO alliance. This international group of scholars will look at a broad range of issues from a variety of perspectives in the interest of, not only explaining recent developments, but also making recommendations about critical choices confronting the NATO allies. While a renewed emphasis on collective defense is clearly a priority, the contributors to this volume also caution against an overcorrection which would make NATO too inwardly focused

Kennedy to Donald J.

Now, Kissinger the Negotiator provides a groundbreaking analysis of Kissinger's overall approach to making deals and his skill in resolving conflicts--expertise that holds powerful and enduring lessons.Based on in-depth interviews with Kissinger himself about some of his most difficult negotiations and an extensive study of his writings, James K.

Mnookin of Harvard Law School crystallize the key elements of the former Secretary of State's approach. Taut and instructive, Kissinger the Negotiator mines the long and fruitful career of this elder statesman and shows how his strategies not only apply to contemporary diplomatic challenges but also to other realms of negotiation, including business, public policy, and law.Essential reading for current and future leaders, Kissinger the Negotiator is an invaluable guide to reaching agreements
Natural allies a blueprint for the future of U.S.-India relations by Richard Lee Armitage( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The emergence of India as a new major global power is transforming the world's geopolitical landscape, with profound implications for the future trajectory of our century and for America's own global interests. A strengthened U.S.-India strategic partnership is thus imperative in this new era. The transformation of U.S. ties with New Delhi over the past 10 years, led by Presidents Clinton and Bush, stands as one of the most significant triumphs of recent American foreign policy. It has also been a bipartisan success. In the last several years alone, the United States and India have completed a landmark civil nuclear cooperation agreement, enhanced military ties, expanded defense trade, increased bilateral trade and investment and deepened their global political cooperation. Many prominent Indians and Americans, however, now fear this rapid expansion of ties has stalled. Past projects remain incomplete, few new ideas have been embraced by both sides, and the forward momentum that characterized recent cooperation has subsided. The Obama administration has taken significant steps to break through this inertia, including with its Strategic Dialogue this spring and President Obama's planned state visit to India in November 2010. Yet there remains a sense among observers in both countries that this critical relationship is falling short of its promise

Anchoring the alliance by R. Nicholas Burns( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does the Atlantic community face a dim if not dismal future, or can it remain a catalyst for global action? That depends on leadership, and that's what this report is about. This report argues that NATO remains the most successful alliance in modern history. Its future is in doubt if its members do not change their ways. The aim of this project is to offer concrete suggestions for steps allies can take individually and collectively to ensure the new Strategic Concept does not become a document reflecting overly ambitious goals for an alliance that lacks political will. We seek in this report to offer a concise prescription for how the NATO allies can strengthen the Alliance for the many challenges ahead

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Program #866: "The Second World. Many observers feel that a preoccupation with the war on terror has resulted in a more unilateral approach to American foreign policy. These experts predict that to regain the full expression of its global power that [the] United States will have to re engage the world. Author Parag Khanna argues that such re engagement will confront the U.S. with a vastly different world order. In the world of the 21st century there are three empires in Khanna's view: America, the European Union and China."--Track Sheet
