The most dangerous man in America Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the New York Times, making headlines around the world. ... one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, its president, and the Supreme Court--a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation, and the end of the Vietnam War."--Container
A study of future worlds by Richard A Falk( Book )

20 editions published in 1975 in 3 languages and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book suggests models of new world organizations that will be necessary to achieve the elimination of global poverty, injustice, war, and environmental imbalance by the end of the 20th century. The book was developed by the World Order Models Project (womp), an international group of researchers and scholars established in 1968 to explore alternative futures. The book proposes a framework for a reformed and integrated world polity, or political unit. It is based on (1) a time frame to be reached by the 1990s, (2) an understanding of present political realities, and (3) a transition strategy for converting present political and value orientations to required future forms. Chapter one explains the values basic to global change, interrelationships among values, acceleration of values change, and the need for centralized guidance. Present trends in world society are explored in chapter two, including population, war systems, ecological pressures, and issues of technological innovation. Chapters three and four suggest models for world order based on state, regional, and world nexuses of power; and propose world systems for security, economics, human development, and ecological balance. Chapter five discusses problems and procedures of the transition to a world polity, stressing minimization of violence and maximization of human well being. Chapters six and seven examine selected aspects of a world economy and America's stake in global reform. (Av)
The International law of civil war by Quincy Wright( Book )

19 editions published between 1971 and 2010 in English and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A title in the series Foundations of the Laws of War, Joseph Perkovich, General Editor. Reprint of the first edition. This volume explores the complex relationship between international law and civil war through six essays on the American Civil War, the Spanish Civil War, the Algerian Revolution, and conflicts in the Congo, Yemen and Vietnam. Emphasis is placed on the facts and law of external participation on behalf of either or both contending factions, the role of international institutions, the patterns of adherence to the laws of war and patterns by which the violence was ended and order restored. "Six case studies, all of them excellent.": John G. Stoessinger, Foreign Affairs 49 (1970-1971) 755." -- Présenté par l'éditeur

Security in disarmament by Richard J Barnet( Book )

20 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The risks of arms control and disarmament, how they can be reduced or eliminated, and the political implications of drastic disarmament are analyzed by eleven experts. Emphasis is placed on the development of techniques for disarming that are politically feasible and give reasonable assurance to each side that the other is not violating its obligations for any serious reason. Three major aspects of the problem are considered: how to get the disarmament process started, and once started to continue it how to retain the freedom of diplomatic action that might be needed to defend national interests; and how to approach the problems of political security in a fully disarmed world. Originally published in 1965. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

International law and world order : a problem-oriented coursebook by Burns H Weston( Book )

40 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of basic documents in international law and world order is intended as a primary source for persons researching or otherwise working in international law and relations: international civil servants and diplomats, governmental officials, nongovernmental (citizen action) organizations, practicing lawyers, academicians, and students of international law and affairs. It has been assembled mainly for two reasons: first, because the legal and quasi-legal instruments that help to shape our world order, both vast and growing, often are difficult to locate and obtain; second, because these same instruments are nevertheless increasingly relevant and important to the enlightened and just management of global and international affairs. A compendium of basic documents in international law and world order is thus warranted, particularly if it is easily accessed, wide-ranging, and up-to-date. Indeed, the world rule of law demands it. The international legal order, whose very existence often is doubted because of its relative lack of visible structure and coherence, cannot help but be enhanced by a convenient, broad-based, and simultaneously historical and contemporaneous compendium of basic instruments that helps to bring meaning and organization to otherwise imperfectly revealed experience."--Preface

Achieving human rights by Richard A Falk( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Falk once again captures our attention with a nuanced analysis of what we need to do - at the personal level as well as state actions - to refocus our pursuit of human rights in a post-9/11 world. From democratic global governance to the costs of the Iraq War, the preeminent role of the United States in the world order to the role of individual citizens of a globalized world, Falk stresses the moral urgency of achieving human rights. In elegant simplicity, this book places the priority of such an ethos in the personal decisions we make in our human interactions, not just the activities of government institutions and nongovernmental organizations. Falk masterly weaves together such topics as the Iraq War, U.S. human rights practices and abuses, humanitarian intervention, the rule of law, responses to terrorism, genocide, the Pinochet trial, information technology, and many other topics to create a moral tapestry of world order with human rights at the center."--Jacket
