Japan as a "normal country"? a nation in search of its place in the world ( )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For decades, Japan's foreign policy has been seen by both internal and external observers as abnormal in relation to its size and level of sophistication. Japan as a 'Normal Country'? is a thematic and geographically comparative discussion of the unique limitations of Japanese foreign and defence policy. The contributors reappraise the definition of normality and ask whether Japan is indeed abnormal, what it would mean to become normal, and whether the country can - or should - become so
The Cuban Missile Crisis : a concise history by Don Munton( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors distill the best current scholarship on the Cuban missile crisis into a brief narrative history. They draw on newly available documents to provide a comprehensive treatment of its causes, events, consequences, and significance. Stressing the importance of context in relation to the genesis, conduct, and resolution of the crisis, the U.S., Soviet, and Cuban angles are examined, revealing the vital role differences in national perspectives played at every stage. While the book provides a concise, up-to-date look at this pivotal event, it also notes gaps and mysteries in the historical record and highlights important persistent interpretive disputes. The authors provide a detailed guide to the literature and film for those who wish to explore further. The Cuban Missile Crisis is ideal for undergraduate courses on the 1960s, U.S. foreign policy, the Cold War, twentieth-century world history, and comparative foreign policy

Justice and the genesis of war by David A Welch( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Studies of the causes of war generally presuppose a "realist" account of motivation: when statesmen choose to wage war, they do so for purposes of self-preservation or self-aggrandizement. In this book, however, David Welch argues that humans are motivated by normative concerns, the pursuit of which may result in behavior inconsistent with self-interest. He examines the effect of one particular type of normative motivation - the justice motive - in the outbreak of the five Great Power wars: the Crimean War, the Franco-Prussian War, World War I, World War II, and the Falklands War. Realist theory would suggest that these wars would be among the least likely to be influenced by considerations other than power and interest, but the author demonstrates that the justice motive played an important role in the genesis of war, and that its neglect by theorists of international politics is a major oversight. Since states are often led to war by the perceived demands of justice, Welch concludes the book by examining the meaning of justice across borders with an eye to clarifying its relationship to international order. He argues that there is room for creative institution-building in the pursuit of a just world order, but that the current gap between empirical and normative political science makes progress toward this goal difficult

Virtual JFK Vietnam if Kennedy had lived ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Does it matter who is President of the United States when it comes to issues of war and peace? It explores this question by investigating one of the most debated "what if" scenarios in the history of U.S. foreign policy: What would President John F. Kennedy have done in Vietnam if he had not been assassinated in 1963, and had he been re-elected in 1964? The film employs what Harvard historian Niall Ferguson calls "virtual history," assessing the plausibility of counterfactuals--"what ifs"--The outcomes they might have produced. Drawing on unusual archival footage from presidential libraries and the National Archives, along with newly deciphered audio tapes and other documentary evidence, the film draws our attention to six highly charged crises Kennedy faced in which many, or most, of his advisers counseled war: The Bay of Pigs, The Laos Crisis, the Berlin Crisis, the Showdown over Vietnam, The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Withdrawal from Vietnam"--Container

Sources of contemporary Russian foreign policy by David A Welch( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This thesis systematically employs two explanatory theories for the study of Russian foreign policy, and tests these two theories against one another to determine their explanatory power. This thesis investigates Russian Federation foreign policy regarding three contemporary issues, the "near abroad", the Kuril Islands dispute, and the current Bosnian conflict. It conducts an analysis of Russian policy statements and doctrine during the period from the dissolution of the Soviet Union through the formation of the Russian Federation (from 1 January 1992 until August 1994). The analysis is based on hypotheses which seek to explain Russian foreign policy decisions with reference to two theoretical concepts: the concept of "balance of power" that emerges from political realism and the more recently developed concept of "strategic culture."
