Foreign policy begins at home : the case for putting America's house in order by Richard Haass( Book )

23 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A rising China, climate change, terrorism, a nuclear Iran, a turbulent Middle East, and a reckless North Korea present serious challenges to our national security. But the biggest threat to the United States comes not from abroad-but from within. Burgeoning deficit and debt, crumbling infrastructure, second class schools, and an outdated immigration system have resulted in a country less competitive and far more vulnerable than it should be. In Foreign Policy Begins at Home, Council on Foreign Relations President Richard N. Haass describes a twenty-first century in which power is widely diffused. Globalization, revolutionary technologies, and power shifts have created a "nonpolar" world of American primacy but not domination. Still, it is a relatively forgiving world, one with no great power rival. How long this strategic respite will last, though, depends entirely on whether the United States puts its own house in order. Haass outlines a process of Restoration that will ensure the United States has the resources it needs to lead the world, set examples other societies will want to emulate, reduce the country's vulnerability to hostile forces and fickle markets, and discourage would-be adversaries from mounting aggression. Provocative and bold, Foreign Policy Begins at Home lays out a new vision for American Restoration. It will require hard choices, but hard choices are called for. At stake is nothing less than America's future and the character of the coming era of history."--Publisher information
War of necessity : war of choice by Richard Haass( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Haass--a member of the National Security Council staff for the first President Bush and the director of policy planning in the State Department for Bush II--contrasts the decisions that shaped the conduct of the two Iraq wars and makes a crucial distinction between the 1991 and 2003 conflicts, while offering an examination of the means and ends of U.S. foreign policy: how it should be made, what it should seek to accomplish, and how it should be pursued
A world in disarray : American foreign policy and the crisis of the old order by Richard Haass( Book )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. The rules, policies, and institutions that have guided the world since World War II have largely run their course. Respect for sovereignty alone cannot uphold order in an age defined by global challenges from terrorism and the spread of nuclear weapons to climate change and cyberspace. Meanwhile, great-power rivalry is returning. Weak states pose problems just as confounding as strong ones. The United States remains the world's strongest country, but American foreign policy has at times made matters worse, both by what the United States has done and by what it has failed to do. The Middle East is in chaos, Asia is threatened by China's rise and a reckless North Korea, and Europe, for decades the world's most stable region, is now anything but. Dr. Richard Haass, President of the nonpartisan Council on Foreign Relations, explains how the election of Donald Trump and the unexpected vote for Brexit signals that many in modern democracies reject important aspects of globalization, including borders open to trade and immigrants. In 'A World In Disarray', Haass argues for an updated global operating system -- call it World Order 2.0 -- that reflects the reality that power is widely distributed and that borders count for less. One critical element of this adjustment will be adopting a new approach to sovereignty, one that embraces its obligations and responsibilities as well as its rights and protections. Haass also details how the United States should act towards China and Russia, as well as in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. He suggests, too, what the country should do to address its dysfunctional politics, mounting debt, and the lack of agreement on the nature of its relationship with the world."--Jacket flap

The power to persuade by Richard Haass( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While teaching at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Richard N. Haass realized that no existing book advised those in political settings how to become more effective. Now he has filled the gap. Using a compass as his operating metaphor - your boss is north of you, your staff is south of you, and so on - he provides guidelines for managing key relationships, setting agendas, and translating goals into results
Transatlantic tensions : the United States, Europe, and problem countries( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the "problem" countries of Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, and Nigeria. In each case, leading American and European experts offer separate chapters explaining sources of U.S. and European differences, consequences for policies designed to influence problem states, and prospects for bridging transatlantic policy rifts. A conclusion by Richard N. Haass places these differences in perspective and suggests what Europe and the United States need to do to ameliorate this tension - and what could transpire if they do not."--Jacket

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result is a lively, useful book for the tens of millions of Americans working in government at the local, state, and federal level, in unruly organizations of every sort, and for students of both public administration and business."--Jacket
The reluctant sheriff : the United States after the Cold War by Richard Haass( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Polish and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cold War came to an end in 1989 - and still there is no name for the present era, much less an American foreign policy to replace the now obsolete doctrine of containment. The Reluctant Sheriff by foreign policy expert Richard Haass fills this void. It is the first book both to provide a comprehensive understanding of the post-Cold War world and a compass to help the United States navigate it. The author proposes that the United States adopt a new foreign policy - "regulation" - and work to promote order in an often unruly world. To do this, the United States will frequently need to assume the role of global sheriff, one who forges coalitions or posses of states and other entities for specific tasks, much as was done during Operation Desert Storm. American unilateral action will rarely be a viable option; alliances and international organizations will be able to play a useful but limited role
Economic sanctions and American diplomacy by Richard Haass( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Sanctions don't work" is an often-heard refrain. The reality, though, is more complex. Sanctions - mostly economic but also political and military penalties aimed at states or other entities to alter political and/or military behavior - almost always have consequences, sometimes desirable, at other times unwanted and unexpected. What cannot be disputed is that economic sanctions are increasingly at the center of American foreign policy: to stem the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, promote human rights, discourage aggression, protect the environment, and thwart drug trafficking." "Drawing on eight case studies - China, Cuba, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, and the former Yugoslavia - this edited volume presents lessons to be learned from recent American use of economic sanctions. It also provides specific guidelines designed to shape future decisions by Congress and the executive branch."--Jacket

U.S. policy toward the Korean peninsula by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Task Force report comprehensively reviews the situation on the peninsula as well as the options for U.S. policy. It provides a valuable ranking of U.S. interests, and calls for a firm commitment from the Obama administration to seek denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, backed by a combination of sanctions, incentives, and sustained political pressure, in addition to increased efforts to contain proliferation. It notes that China's participation in this effort is vital. Indeed, the report makes clear that any hope of North Korea's dismantling its nuclear program rests on China's willingness to take a strong stance. For denuclearization to proceed, China must acknowledge that the long-term hazard of a nuclear Korea is more perilous to it and the region than the short-term risk of instability. The report also recognizes that robust relations between Washington and its allies in the region, Japan and South Korea, must underpin any efforts to deal with the North Korean problem. It looks as well at regime change and scenarios that could lead to reunification of the peninsula. At the same time that the Task Force emphasizes the danger and urgency of North Korea's behavior, it recognizes and applauds the beneficial U.S. relationship with South Korea, which has proved to be a valuable economic and strategic partner. In this vein, the Task Force advocates continued close coordination with Seoul and urges prompt congressional passage of the U.S.-South Korea free trade agreement
