Threats to democracy prevention and response : report of an independent task force ( Book )
11 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The work of the international community of democratic states does not end when a country's people choose democracy. Rather, democratic governments must endeavor also to help one another to nurture and maintain their democracies. In particular, governments must work to secure more effective international action against coups d'etat and erosions of democracy, which continue to plague countries on the democratic path. UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan expressed this best when he stated, "Wherever democracy has taken root, it will not be reversed." This report -- the work of an Independent Task Force composed of leading civil society, academic, and former government figures from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East -- develops a framework for the coordination of international community action against such threats to democracy. It recommends preventive and responsive measures that will enable the international community of democratic states to act quickly and collectively.The Task Force argues that helping countries maintain and consolidate democratic gains is consistent not only with the values but also with the security interests of the world's democracies. Democratic states are less likely to breed terrorists or to be state sponsors of terrorism They are less likely to go to war with one another and are more likely to be active participants in the global economy. The report concludes that ultimately the international community can encourage democracy to take root and flourish only by showing the citizens of nondemocratic countries that democracy is both beneficial and sustainable over the long term. The recommendations in this report provide one important setof tools for doing so
The mighty & the Almighty : reflections on America, God, and world affairs by Madeleine Korbel Albright ( Recording )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The mighty and the almighty, Madeleine Albright examines the profound impact of religion on America's view of itself, the effect on U.S. policy of the rise of the Christian right, the Bush administration's successes and failures in responding to 9/11, the challenges posed by the war in Iraq, and the importance of understanding Islam. She offers a balanced but, when necessary, devastating analysis of U.S. strategy, and condemns those of all faiths who exploit religious fervor to create divisions or enhance their own power. In this illuminating account, Albright argues that, to be effective, U.S. policy makers must understand the power and place of religion in motivating others and in coloring how American actions are perceived. Defying the conventional wisdom, she suggests not only that religion and politics are inseparable, but that their partnership, when properly harnessed, can be a force for justice and peace

In support of Arab democracy : why and how : report of an independent task force by Council on Foreign Relations ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the past five decades, U.S. policy in the Arab world has been predicated largely on the notion that the political status quo in the region best served Washington's interests. With the assistance of Arab partners such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Morocco, the United States built a remarkably good record of achieving its objectives-- notably, protecting the free flow of oil from the Persian Gulf, ensuring Israel's security, confronting rogue states, battling terrorism, and during the Cold War, containing Soviet influence in the region. Yet the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, DC, on September 11, 2001, challenged the underlying assumption of U.S. Middle East policy. Within a short time after the attacks, policymakers began to question whether authoritarian political systems in the Middle East were sources of stability or the primary causes of the political alienation and extremism that fueled organizations like al-Qaeda. The Bush administration clearly believes the best way to "drain the swamp" that produces terrorists is to promote democracy and reform more broadly in the Middle East. The Council on Foreign Relations established this Independent Task Force to consider whether promoting democracy in the Middle East is in the best interests of the United States and, if so, how Washington should implement such a policy

Prague winter : a personal story of remembrance and war, 1937-1948 by Madeleine Korbel Albright ( Book )
22 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Before Madeleine Albright turned twelve, her life was shaken by the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia'the country where she was born'the Battle of Britain, the near total destruction of European Jewry, the Allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. Albright's experiences, and those of her family, provide a lens through which to view the most tumultuous dozen years in modern history. Drawing on her memory, her parents' written reflections, interviews with contemporaries, and newly available documents, Albright recounts a tale that is by turns harrowing and inspiring. Prague Winter is an exploration of the past with timeless dilemmas in mind and, simultaneously, a journey with universal lessons that is intensely personal. The book takes readers from the Bohemian capital's thousand-year-old castle to the bomb shelters of London, from the desolate prison ghetto of TerezIn to the highest councils of European and American government. Albright reflects on her discovery of her family's Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland's tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. Often relying on eyewitness descriptions, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exiled leaders and freedom fighters, resistance organizers and collaborators, victims and killers. These events of enormous complexity are nevertheless shaped by concepts familiar to any growing child: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, the quest for independence, and the difference between right and wrong. "No one who lived through the years of 1937 to 1948," Albright writes, "was a stranger to profound sadness. Millions of innocents did not survive, and their deaths must never be forgotten. Today we lack the power to reclaim lost lives, but we have a duty to learn all that we can about what happened and why." At once a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history, Prague Winter serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past'as seen through the eyes of one of the international community's most respected and fascinating figures

U.S.-Turkey relations : a new partnership by Madeleine Korbel Albright ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turkey is a rising regional and global power facing, as is the United States, the challenges of political transitions in the Middle East, bloodshed in Syria, and Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. As a result, it is incumbent upon the leaders of the United States and Turkey to define a new partnership "in order to make a strategic relationship a reality," says a new Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)-sponsored Independent Task Force. The bipartisan Task Force is chaired by former secretary of state Madeleine K. Albright and former national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley, and is directed by Steven A. Cook, CFR's Hasib J. Sabbagh senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies. The Task Force includes twenty-three prominent experts who represent a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. Turkey is a rising regional and global power facing, as is the United States, the challenges of political transitions in the Middle East, bloodshed in Syria, and Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. As a result, it is incumbent upon the leaders of the United States and Turkey to define a new partnership "in order to make a strategic relationship a reality," says a new Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)-sponsored Independent Task Force. The bipartisan Task Force is chaired by former secretary of state Madeleine K. Albright and former national security adviser Stephen J. Hadley, and is directed by Steven A. Cook, CFR's Hasib J. Sabbagh senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies. The Task Force includes twenty-three prominent experts who represent a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. "Turkey may not yet have the status of one of Washington's traditional European allies," the report explains, "but there is good strategic reason for the bilateral relationship to grow and mature into a mutually beneficial partnership that can manage a complex set of security, economic, humanitarian, and environmental problems." The relationship should reflect "not only common American-Turkish interests, but also Turkey's new stature as an economically and politically successful country with a new role to play in a changing Middle East," argues the Task Force in the report, U.S.-Turkey Relations: A New Partnership. Turkey is more democratic, prosperous, and politically influential than ever before. Still there are worrying domestic developments that raise questions about Turkey's democratic practices. According to the Task Force, these concerns include: "the prosecution and detention of journalists, the seemingly open-ended and at times questionable pursuit of military officers and other establishment figures for alleged conspiracy against the government, the apparent illiberal impulses of some Turkish leaders, the still-unresolved Kurdish issue, and the lack of progress on a new constitution." The Task Force finds that overall, Turkey is not well understood in the United States. The Task Force "seeks to promote a better understanding of the new Turkey--its strengths, vulnerabilities, and ambitions--in order to assess its regional and global role and make recommendations for a new partnership of improved and deepened U.S.-Turkey ties." To make the vision for a new U.S.-Turkey partnership a reality, Ankara and Washington should observe the following principles: equality and mutual respect for each other's interests; confidentiality and trust; close and intensive consultations to identify common goals and strategies on issues of critical importance; avoidance of foreign policy surprises; and recognition and management of inevitable differences between Washington and Ankara. --Publisher description
