Korea, the divided nation by Edward A Olsen( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Prior to Korea's liberation from Japanese colonialism and the country's subsequent division at the end of World War II, the nation had enjoyed a long dynastic history that made the postwar partition particularly traumatic. The ensuing Cold War years soon spawned a very hot Korean War, subsequent decades of strained inter-Korean relations, and tensions in the region surrounding the peninsula. This volume provides readers who are unfamiliar with Korea's heritage with insight into how the two Koreas became engulfed in international geopolitical tensions, including expert analysis of this disjoined nation's background, modern circumstances, and future prospects."

Nation states as schizophrenics : Germany and Japan as post-Cold War actors by Roberta N Haar( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National security : the Israeli experience by Yiśraʼel Ṭal( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines the degree to which security theories have proven valid and suggests an updated security doctrine for the next century. Beginning with the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, Israeli defense planners have faced a daunting task. General Tal describes the history of the Israel-Arab wars from the War of Independence onward and presents a security theory specific to Israel from which the fighting doctrines of the Israeli military derive. He also categorizes the levels of security various nations enjoy as a result of their differing geo-political situations, their power, and the conflicts of interests that they face with their neighbors."--Jacket

African foreign policy and diplomacy from antiquity to the 21st century by Daniel Don Nanjira( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa is a crucible of culture and heritage with a complex history. Indigenous tribal practices and preexisting values were altered dramatically, either by force or as a result of the Christian and Islamic cultures that spread throughout the continent. Later, the domineering forces of European colonial nations brought even greater change. Africa emerged from its colonization an amalgam of diverse and conflicting traditions, legacies, values, and languages. Consequently, these developments have had a wide impact on the formulation and execution of African foreign policy and diplomacy today

Unequal partners : French-German relations, 1989-2000 by Julius Weis Friend( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reconciliation of France and Germany is a landmark in the history of the 20th century. Between 1870 and 1950, they fought three wars. Then, as founders of the European Community they became linked by increasingly close economic, political, and cultural ties. Friend asserts that it is no exaggeration to say that the French-German relationship has been central to the history of Western Europe in the second half of the 20th century.''Friend provides a largely chronological account of the bilateral relation from the turbulence of unification through the years when an enlarged EU sought new institutions of governance. He then examines the basis of the Franco-German relationship today and looks to future changes. As Germany has become the economic giant of Europe, particularly after the reunification of West and East Germany, the relationship has changed, and Friend explores how this unequal but unavoidable partnership has adapted. An important guide for policy makers as well as scholars and students involved with contemporary European Studies

Lockerbie : the story and the lessons by Rodney Wallis( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together all of the facts surrounding the sabotage of Flight 103, including the investigation and the civil litigation in which so much of the story unfolded for the first time. It uncovers the fundamental weaknesses in Pan Am's communication and management policies which created an environment where good security was impossible. Wallis supports the policy that "politics are politics" and explores the possibility that U.S. and U.K. policy towards a "neutral" trial for the two Libyans indicted for the bombing may have been affected more by the wider scenario of Middle East politics than simple justice for the victims of Lockerbie
