War of necessity : war of choice by Richard Haass( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Arabic 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
Intervention : the use of American military force in the post-Cold War world by Richard Haass( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 1,209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Haass also explains the political and military consequences of these commitments, and puts forward a workable division of labor among the United States, regional organizations such as NATO, and the United Nations. This book includes appendices that make readily available key documents (inclnding the U.N. Charter and the War Powers Resolution) and statements on the subject of intervention from such influential voices as Caspar Weinberger, Colin Powell, George Bush and Bill Clinton. The result is a provocative, thoughtful study that is essential for understanding the most important foreign policy question facing the United States
A world in disarray : American foreign policy and the crisis of the old order by Richard Haass( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 865 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

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 608 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
Conflicts unending : the United States and regional disputes by Richard Haass( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transatlantic tensions : the United States, Europe, and problem countries( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 547 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

Economic sanctions and American diplomacy by Richard Haass( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 435 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 )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 150 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
A world in disarray : American foreign policy and the crisis of the old order by Richard Haass( Recording )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A visionary examination of the deteriorating ability of the U.S. and other global powers to shape the world in their image, and the end of the world order they sought, from the president of the Council on Foreign Relations Things fall apart; the center cannot hold. Not just a line from a Yeats poem, this is, argues Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass, an apt description of the current state of the world. A World in Disarray is his wise, historically grounded examination of the current world, how we got here, what will happen next, and what it will mean for us all. Great powers, particularly the United States, for long the dominant building blocks of international relations, are losing some and in certain cases much of their sway to other entities and forces. Disorder is on the rise. In fact, as Haass shows, America's leadership has at times made matters worse, both by trying to do too much and by increasingly failing to use the power it does have. Adding to the problem is a decline in the ability of the country's elected representatives to agree on a consistent course of action or to ensure that the U.S. has the economic, human, military, and physical resources global leadership requires. Meanwhile, power in all its forms is more distributed in more hands than at any time in history. The same holds for technology. Decision-making is ever more decentralized. Globalization with its vast, fast flows of just about anything and everything across borders, is a reality that governments often cannot monitor, much less manage. World population, already above seven billion, is projected to rise to at least nine billion by mid-century. Climate change now outpaces the world's ability to stop or in some cases adapt to it. For its part, the United States remains the strongest country in the world, but its share of global power is shrinking, as is its ability to translate the considerable power it does have into influence. A World in Disarray traces the history of the rise of the modern state system through the end of the Cold War and illustrates how the past twenty-five years have seen a surprising unraveling of order in many domains, including but in no way limited to the Middle East. A World in Disarray offers much more than analysis, however. Haass argues the world needs an updated operating system--call it world order 2.0--that takes into account new forces, challenges, and non-state actors. One critical element of this adjustment, particularly for the United States, 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 what the U.S. should do towards China and Russia, in Asia and the Middle East, and at home on behalf of its national security. Drawing on the author's own years of expertise as an analyst and official at the highest levels of government, A World in Disarray is a lucid and incisive analysis of our shifting landscape and the need for a new American foreign policy that reflects a twenty-first century world that in ways promises to be a departure from much that has come before
After the tests : U.S. policy toward India and Pakistan : report of an independent task force : cosponsored by the Brookings Institution and the Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spring 1998 Indian and Pakistani nuclear tests made South Asia and the world a more dangerous place, says this independent Task Force report. It recommends that the immediate objectives of U.S. foreign policy should be to encourage India and Pakistan to cap their nuclear capabilities at or near their current levels and to reinforce the global effort to stem the horizontal and vertical proliferation of nuclear weapons and advanced delivery systems. At the same time, the Task Force emphasizes that the United States has important interests in South Asia in addition to those relating to proliferation. Those include preventing conflict, promoting democracy, expanding economic growth, trade, and investment, and cooperating with India and Pakistan on global challenges. In addition to arguing for a reduction in U.S. economic sanctions, the report outlines steps India and Pakistan should take to defuse the situation in Kashmir, the issue with the greatest potential to trigger a conventional or even nuclear war. The report also suggests an agenda for China and other nations with a stake in the region's stability. Noting that India has the potential to be a major Asian power and that Pakistan can have a significant impact in Central Asia and the Persian Gulf, the report calls upon current and future U.S. presidents to assign a higher priority to both countries
