Balkan tragedy chaos and dissolution after the Cold War by Susan L Woodward( )
8 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 2,959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Yugoslavia was well positioned at the end of the cold war to make a successful transition to a market economy and westernization. Yet two years later, the country had ceased to exist, and devastating local wars were being waged to create new states. Between the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 and the start of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina in March 1992, the country moved toward disintegration at astonishing speed. In this book, Susan Woodward explains what happened to Yugoslavia and what can be learned from the response of outsiders to its crisis. Woodward's analysis is based on her first-hand experience before the country's collapse and then during the later stages of the Bosnian war as a member of the UN operation sent to monitor cease-fires and provide humanitarian assistance

Brain gain rethinking U.S. immigration policy by Darrell M West( )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Many of America's greatest artists, scientists, inventors, educators, and entrepreneurs have come from abroad. Rather than suffering from the "brain drain" of talented and educated individuals emigrating, the United States has benefited greatly over the years from the "brain gain" of immigration. These gifted immigrants have engineered advances in energy, information technology, international commerce, sports, arts, and culture. To stay competitive, the United States must institute more of an open-door policy to attract unique talents from other nations. Yet Americans resist such a policy despite their own immigrant histories and the substantial social, economic, intellectual, and cultural benefits of welcoming newcomers. Why? In this book the author asserts that perception or "vision" is one reason reform in immigration policy is so politically difficult. Public discourse tends to emphasize the perceived negatives. Fear too often trumps optimism and reason, And democracy is messy, with policy principles that are often difficult to reconcile. The seeming irrationality of U.S. immigration policy arises from a variety of thorny and interrelated factors: particularistic politics and fragmented institutions, public concern regarding education and employment, anger over taxes and social services, and ambivalence about national identity, culture, and language. Add to that stew a myopic (or worse) press, persisent fears of terrorism, and the difficulties of implementing border enforcement and legal justice. He prescribes a series of reforms that will put America on a better course and enhance its long-term social and economic prosperity. Reconceptualizing immigration as a way to enhance innovation and competitiveness, the author notes, will help us find the next Sergey Brin, the next Andrew Grove, or even the next Albert Einstein

Den ukendte front i kampen mod terror ligger på Afrikas Horn. Der er stor frygt for, at regionen ender som et nyt Afghanistan. Derfor har USA afsat både økonomisk bistand og soldater for at forhindre, at situationen i området kommer ud af kontrol og amerikanske soldater yder bistand til befolkningen bl.a. med at skaffe rent vand, ligesom de holder fælles øvelser med regionens hære. I bogen beskriver en række bidragydere situationen i regionens lande: Afrikas Horn og Yemen, Robert I. Rotberg; Somalia og Somaliland, Kenneth J. Menkhaus; Djibouti, Lange Schermerhorn; Eritrea, Dan Conell; Ethiopien, David H. Shinn; Sudan, Timothy Carney; Yemen, Robert D. Burrows; Kenya, Johnnie Carson
