America's mission : the United States and the worldwide struggle for democracy in the twentieth century by Tony Smith( Book )

39 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a study of selected countries - most notably Germany, Japan, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic, Iran, and Nicaragua (but also Mexico, Chile, Guatemala, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Greece, South Africa, and Russia) - Smith reviews the American record both in local terms and with respect to its impact on world politics. Smith's story is at once that of the central thrust of American foreign policy in the twentieth century, and that of the central international political struggle of the period among nationalists wedded to rival ideologies of fascism, communism, and democracy, each striving to dominate world affairs

Foreign attachments : the power of ethnic groups in the making of American foreign policy by Tony Smith( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Smith ranges over the history of ethnic group involvement in foreign affairs; he notes the openness of our political system to interest groups; and he investigates the relationship between multiculturalism and U.S. foreign policy. The book has three major propositions. First, ethnic groups play a larger role in American foreign policymaking than is widely recognized. Second, the negative consequences of ethnic group involvement today outweighs the benefits this activism at times confers on America's role in world affairs. And third, the tensions of a pluralist democracy are particularly apparent in the making of foreign policy, where the self-interested demands of a host of domestic actors raise an enduring problem of democratic citizenship - the need to reconcile general and particular interests."--Jacket

A pact with the devil : Washington's bid for world supremacy and the betrayal of the American promise by Tony Smith( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the overwhelming opposition on the left to the war in Iraq, many prominent liberals supported the war on humanitarian grounds. They argued that the war would rid the world of a brutal dictator and liberate the Iraqi people from totalitarian oppression, paving the way for a democratic transformation of the country. In A Pact with the Devil Tony Smith deftly traces this undeniable drift in mainstream liberal thinking toward a more militant posture in world affairs with respect to human rights and democracy promotion. Beginning with the Wilsonian quest to 'make the world safe for democracy' right up to the present day liberal support for regime change, Smith isolates leading strands of liberal internationalist thinking in order to see how the 'liberal hawks' constructed them into a case for American and liberal imperialism in the Middle East. The result is a reflection on an important aspect of the intellectual history of American foreign policy; establishing how a sophisticated group of thinkers came to fashion their recommendations to Washington and working to see what role liberalism may still play in deliberations in the country on its role in world events now that the failure of these ambitions in Iraq seems clear

The rise and fall of war crimes trials : from Charles I to Bush II by Charles Anthony Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first comprehensive analysis of the politics of war crimes trials. It provides a systematic and theoretically rigorous examination of whether these trials are used as tools for political consolidation or whether justice is their primary purpose. The consideration of cases begins with the trial of Charles I of England and goes through the presidency of George W. Bush, including the trials of Saddam Hussein and those arising from the War on Terror. The book concludes that political consolidation is the primary concern of these trials - a point that runs contrary to the popular perception of the trials and their stated justification. Through the consideration of war crimes trials, this book makes a contribution to our understanding of power and conflict resolution and illuminates the developmental path of war crimes tribunals"--Provided by publisher
