Justice and the genesis of war by David A Welch ( Book )
17 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 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
Vietnam if Kennedy had lived : virtual JFK by James G Blight ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tackling head-on the most controversial and debated _what if_ in U.S. foreign policy, this provocative work explores what President John F. Kennedy would have done in Vietnam had he not been assassinated in 1963. Drawing on a wealth of recently declassified documents, frank oral testimony of White House officials from both the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, and the analysis of top historians, this book presents compelling evidence that JFK was ready to end U.S. involvement well before the conflict escalated. With vivid immediacy, readers will feel they are in the president's war room as the debates raged that forever changed the course of American history -- and continue to affect us profoundly as the shadows of Vietnam stretch into Iraq
Painful choices : a theory of foreign policy change by David A Welch ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Under what conditions should we expect states to do things radically differently all of a sudden? In this book, David Welch seeks to answer this question, constructing a theory of foreign policy change inspired by organization theory, cognitive and motivational psychology, and prospect theory. He then "test drives" the theory in a series of comparative case studies in the security and trade domains: Argentina's decision to go to war over the Falklands/Malvinas vs

Japan as a "normal country"? : a nation in search of its place in the world ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 202 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

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
