Rethinking America's security : beyond Cold War to new world order by Graham T Allison ( Book )
9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the Cold War, American national security seemed clearly defined: to protect against the overarching threat of the Soviet Union and Communist expansion. But with the demise of Communism, America must reconsider its role in the world as dramatically as it did after victory in World War II. As the only real superpower, how should we use our military strength? What are the lessons of the Persian Gulf War? How and when do we cut back on our defense and national security establishment? In the New World Order a country's social cohesion and economic strength at home are increasingly important determinants of its success. To what extent does America need to reconsider its national security in domestic terms--i.e., improving economic competitiveness and learning to live within its means? In this new collection, sponsored by the American Assembly and the Council on Foreign Relations, a group of leading experts assesses the changing conception of national security in the 1990s and its implications for American policy at home and abroad

Lee Kuan Yew : the grand master's insights on China, the United States, and the world by Kuan Yew Lee ( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When Lee Kuan Yew speaks, presidents, prime ministers, diplomats, and CEOs listen. Lee, the founding father of modern Singapore and its prime minister from 1959 to 1990, has honed hiswisdom during more than fifty years on the world stage. Almost single-handedly responsible fortransforming Singapore into a Western-style economic success, he offers a unique perspective on thegeopolitics of East and West. American presidents from Richard Nixon to Barack Obama have welcomedhim to the White House; British prime ministers from Margaret Thatcher to Tony Blair have recognizedhis wisdom; and business leaders from Rupert Murdoch to Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil, havepraised his accomplishments. This book gathers key insights from interviews, speeches, and Lee'svoluminous published writings and presents them in an engaging question and answer format. Lee offers his assessment of China's future, asserting, among other things, that "China will want to share this century as co-equals with the U.S." He affirms the UnitedStates' position as the world's sole superpower but expresses dismay at the vagaries of itspolitical system. He offers strategic advice for dealing with China and goes on to discuss India'sfuture, Islamic terrorism, economic growth, geopolitics and globalization, and democracy. Lee doesnot pull his punches, offering his unvarnished opinions on multiculturalism, the welfare state,education, and the free market. This little book belongs on the reading list of every world leader-- including the one who takes the oath of office on January 20, 2013." - - From MIT Press

World at risk the report of the Commission on the Prevention of WMD Proliferation and Terrorism by Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism (U.S.) ( )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Commission believes that unless the world community acts decisively and with great urgency, it is more likely than not that a weapon of mass destruction will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013. The Commission further believes that terrorists are more likely to be able to obtain and use a biological weapon than a nuclear weapon. The Commission believes that the U.S. government needs to move more aggressively to limit the proliferation of biological weapons and reduce the prospect of a bioterror attack. Further compounding the nuclear threat is the proliferation of nuclear weapons capabilities to new states and the decision by several existing nuclear states to build up their arsenals. Such proliferation is a concern in its own right because it may increase the prospect of military crises that could lead to war and catastrophic use of these weapons
Nonlethal weapons and capabilities report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Richard L Garwin ( )
12 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Integrating nonlethal weapons (NLW) more widely into the U.S. Army and Marine Corps could have reduced damage, saved lives, and helped limit the widespread looting and sabotage that occurred after the cessation of major conflict in Iraq. So argues this report of a Council-sponsored independent Task Force led by Dr. Graham T. Allison, director of the Belfer Center for science and international affairs at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, General Paul X. Kelley, USMC (ret.), former commandant of the Marine Corps, and former military officers, business executives, academics, diplomats, and congressional staff. Incorporating NLW capabilities into the equipment, training, and doctrine of the armed services could substantially improve U.S. effectiveness in conflict, postconflict, and homeland defense. The Task Force report concludes that equipping U.S.-trained and -supported local forces in Afghanistan and Iraq with NLW would help reinforce authority and be more acceptable to local populations than conventionally armed troops

Conceptual models and the Cuban missile crisis: national policy, organization process, and bureaucratic politics by Graham T Allison ( Book )
4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An analysis of the proposition that the maker of governmental policy is not a rational, unitary decisionmaker but rather a conglomerate of large organizations and political actors, and of the implications of this argument for foreign policy analysts. Three conceptual models are developed and applied to the same problem: the Cuban missile crisis and the U.S. decision to impose a blockade on Cuba. Model I (Rational Policy) examines the U.S. strategic calculus: the problem posed by the Soviet missiles and relevant U.S. values and capabilities. Model II (Organization Process) emphasizes organizational constraints in choice and organizational routines in implementation. Model III (Bureaucratic Politics) emphasizes the games, power, and maneuvers of the principal players within the leadership group. The alternative explanations that emerge illustrate the differences that result from the formulation of alternative frames of reference and the opportunities that such formulations offer the analyst in foreign policy research
The responsibilities of democracies in preventing deadly conflict : reflections and recommendations by Graham T Allison ( Book )
4 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The specific question we explore is: What are the special roles and responsibilities of democracies in preventing deadly conflict, not only between themselves, but also among other states in the international system? As David Hamburg has observed, the established democracies "are likely to take the lead in formulating international norms of conduct with respect to intergroup relations, the proliferation of highly lethal weaponry, economic development in poorer nations, human rights, and the growth of democratic institutions.. .. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is a prime example of the ability of the established democracies to work together.. . ." Hamburg then goes on to ask provocatively: "Could a similar alliance, involving a wider coalition of democracies, be organized to ensure security on a worldwide basis, fuel economic growth with fairness, protect cultural diversity, and foster democratic values?"2 We focus here on the particular roles and responsibilities of democracies not to diminish the significance of other essential actors. Rather, recognizing that democracies wield great power, we explore their commensurate obligation to assume great responsibilities. At the outset, it may be useful."--P.2
