Free trade, free world : the advent of GATT by Thomas W Zeiler( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this era of globalization, it is easy to forget that today's free market values were not always predominant. But as this history of the birth of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) shows, the principles and practices underlying our current international economy once represented contested ground between U.S. policymakers, Congress, and America's closest allies. Drawing on historical and theoretical work in a variety of fields and tapping archives in the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, Thomas Zeiler weaves a complex story of diplomacy, negotiation, and politics that uncovers the roots of our current economic ideology
Globalization and the American century by Alfred E Eckes( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Using globalization as a unifying theme, Eckes and Zeiler offer a bold new approach to American history and diplomacy in the twentieth century. The American Century of global leadership, they show, resulted from both innovations and ideas. Revolutionary improvements in technology (especially satellite communications and jet transportation) combined with the leadership elite's enthusiasm for deregulation of markets and free trade to fuel American-style globalization. Zeiler and Eckes show this formula helped the nation rise to economic power after the Spanish-American War and win both world wars and the Cold War. In the decade after the Cold War, America's power and cultural influence soared as business and financial interests pursued the long-term quest for global markets. The tragic events of September 2001 and the growing volatility of global finance, however, have raised questions about whether the era of American-led globalization was sustainable or vulnerable to catastrophic collapse."--Jacket

A companion to World War II by Thomas W Zeiler( )
19 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Offering readers much more than a military history, this unparalleled collection of 58 state-of-the-field historiographic essays explores the widely varying contexts in which nations and transnational communities experienced World War II. In doing so, it provides insight into how the war linked nations, systems, and cultures, and sets the agenda for future research. A Companion to World War II introduces readers to the myriad factors influencing the war's developments, examining the various theatres of operation, the diplomacy, economics, intelligence, and home front experiences of a host of nations including major neutrals. The essays include topics as diverse as American anti-Semitism, women in wartime, French African soldiers, internal resistance in Nazi Germany, the war's impact on the struggle for independence in India, and postwar planning, among others. The collection identifies scholarly and official debates - in the English-speaking community as well as in other languages - about the course of the war through historiographic analysis by established and emerging experts in their fields. It represents a major new contribution to the academic literature on an event of unparalleled centrality in world history."--Jacket

American trade and power in the 1960's by Thomas W Zeiler( Book )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American Trade and Power in the 1960s is a timely examination of the success and failure of United States trade policy under presidents Kennedy and Johnson. Assessing a critical decade in postwar economic relations, Thomas W. Zeiler shows trade policy to be the decisive factor hastening America's economic decline vis-a-vis Western Europe and Japan. By the early 1960s, the international commercial might of the U.S. had begun to diminish as a result of the increased strength of the six-member European Economic Community and a persistent balance-of-payments deficit. Believing that America must either "trade or fade," Kennedy proposed a visionary foreign trade bill as a way to reinvigorate the U.S. economy and maintain the Western alliance against the Soviet. With an astute reading of previously unused documents, Zeiler provides a fascinating description of how Kennedy skillfully juggled powerful protectionist interests with his own more liberal trade sentiments to win passage of the bill. Illustrating the harsh realities faced by the U.S. in a world where its economic dominance was no longer assured, Zeiler also presents a masterful compendium of the GATT talks known as the Kennedy Round. In a narrative noteworthy for its clarity, theoretical sophistication, and scrupulous attention to detail, Zeiler shows how U.S. trade policy was thwarted by rising EEC integration and Gaullist obstructionism. The GATT talks conclusively demonstrated that "American hegemony had ended." American Trade and Power in the 1960s brilliantly illuminates the roots of America's economic decline
Ambassadors in pinstripes : the Spalding world baseball tour and the birth of the American empire by Thomas W Zeiler( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this lively chronicle of the 1888-1889 Spalding world baseball tour, Thomas Zeiler examines the roots of the post-1898 American empire by analyzing the ways in which the tour drew on elements of globalization to inject American values, and thus, power into the international arena. As Zeiler follows the players on each leg of their journey, he explores important elements of globalization: the business ethic, technological innovation, racial hierarchy, attempts at Americanization abroad, and promotion of an exceptionalist identity
