Paul D. Wolfowitz visionary intellectual, policymaker, and strategist by Lewis D Solomon ( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul D. Wolfowitz, as columnist George F. Will wrote in the "Washington Post" (May 12, 2003), "has never been elected to office or served in a president's cabinet, but he has mattered much more than most who have." A long-time State Department hand (Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, Ambassador to Indonesia), a leading scholar/intellectual (Dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies), Deputy Secretary of Defense for five years, and one of the architects of the Bush Doctrine, Wolfowitz is a crucial figure in post-Cold War foreign and security policy. He now serves as President of the World Bank. In each of these roles, he has stood out for his conservative and uncompromising positions. In this first full-length biography of Wolfowitz, Solomon attempts to capture him not by delineating the quotidian details of his career, but by tracing his intellectual development and bureaucratic influence at key points along the road to Baghdad and beyond

In Water Sheikhs and Dam Builders, Francesca de Châtel discusses the problems and paradoxes of water resources in the Middle East and North Africa, exploring the past, present, and future of water in the region and exposing the roots of the current water crisis. The author provides a colorful portrait of a resource that is inextricably entwined with the history and future of the region and its peoples. Based on four years of research and travel from Iran to Libya and from Israel to Syria, the book combines interviews, historical anecdotes, and hard facts to reveal the complexity of this invaluable resource. The first four chapters focus on the historical and cultural legacy of water in the region and form the background to the second part of the book, which addresses various aspects of the current crisis. The last two chapters look at the future of water management, identifying a number of strategies that could lead to more sustainable water use.--Résumé de l'éditeur

The privatization of space exploration : business, technology, law and policy by Lewis D Solomon ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By unleashing entrepreneurial activity, Solomon writes, it may be possible to move the space program from the historic province of NASA and several giant aerospace firms and create a renaissance in human spaceflight. The private sector can energize the quest for space exploration and shape the race for the final frontier. Space entrepreneurs and private sector firms have already made significant innovations in space travel. They have plans for future tourism in space and safer shuttles. Solomon details current U.S. and international laws dealing with space use, settlement, and exploration. He then offers policy recommendations to facilitate privatization." "In the first decade of the twenty-first century, private enterprise is bubbling away, threatening to change the space landscape forever. Individuals are designing spacecraft, start-up companies are testing prototypes, and reservations are being taken for suborbital space flights. With for-profit enterprises carving out a new realm, it is entirely possible that space will one day be a sea of hotels and/or a repository of resources for big business. It is important that regulations are in place for this eventuality. The Privatization of Space Exploration is likely to become the standard reference work in a new field that has great importance, huge implications, and urgency for everyone."--BOOK JACKET

Tech billionaire$ : reshaping philanthropy in a quest for a better world by Lewis D Solomon ( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As the author notes, the traditional categories of business and philanthropy may no longer serve to meet the challenge of social problems. In the twenty-first century the tools and resources used to solve societal problems will be far more varied and mixed than previously. We now see interesting partnerships and new ways of thinking. The divide between profit and social good will narrow. If successful in using their money in innovative ways, government or for-profit business could scale up the catalytic efforts of the new philanthropists. This volume is a proactive, innovative guide to a new era, not just a new technique of monetary support."--BOOK JACKET
