Essays on leadership ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict invited five world leaders, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, George Bush, Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Desmond Tutu, to consider leadership and preventing deadly conflict. Each offers a different perspective, yet all conclude that an individual leader's choices are crucial to creating the conditions that enhance or undermine peace. This volume highlights the capacities of international leaders. These leaders can help mobilize great financial or military resources, build international coalitions, and create a constituency for prevention. The Commission believes that prevention should be on the agenda of every head of state and government meeting and all foreign and defense ministerial gatherings. The international community should champion and reward good governance, especially in countries struggling towards greater democracy. International leaders can call attention to the problem of intergroup violence and tap into latent public inclination toward prevention. They have the scope to explain the need for prevention. They can help build the political will necessary to mount an effective response to complex emergencies and to help people prevent violence before it erupts. Addressing this point in his essay, former United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali highlights the need for vision, communication, and cooperation

Zaire, predicament and prospects : a report to the Minority Rights Group (USA) ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For more than five years, the people of Zaire have struggled to survive in a state on the brink of utter collapse. Amid growing economic disarray and infrastructural breakdown, standards of living have plummeted, moral and ethical standards have withered, and violence has risen. Political authority is almost hopelessly fragmented and discredited. The massive inflow and outflow of Hutu refugees from Rwanda has exacerbated Zaire's multifaceted predicament, a predicament that, for political and economic as well as humanitarian reasons, the international community cannot ignore. But what practical steps can and should be taken by the international community, and which actors (individual governments, multilateral organizations, or NGOs) should take them? In the search for answers to these questions, and for an accurate portrait of the extent and nature of Zaire's malaise, Minority Rights Group (USA), supported by the United States Institute of Peace and the Carnegie Corporation, initiated a project in 1995 that brought together academics, government officials, and NGO experts to consider the case of Zaire and the prospects for effective preventive diplomacy there. This two-part report presents the results of this project: part I offers a broad-ranging examination of Zaire's predicament; part II presents three suggestions for preventive action to ameliorate Zaire's problems
The fundamentals of learning by Edward L Thorndike ( Book )
16 editions published between 1932 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume reports investigations covering a period of three years, dealing with the fundamental facts and forces in learning. It was the author's original purpose to work at certain basic problems until satisfactory solutions were reached; and in general he has done so. But the results suggested certain new problems of such great importance that he has thought it wise to study these also, even without expectation of attaining a final settlement of them. As an indirect consequence of this, one important problem in his original set, that of the relation of the formation of conditional reflexes to associative shifting of the ordinary sort, has been treated only very cursorily".
