Zbigniew Brzezinski : America's grand strategist by Justin Vaïsse( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and French and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski (1928-2017) guided U.S. foreign policy at a critical juncture of the Cold War. But his impact on America's role in the world extends far beyond his years in the White House, and reverberates to this day. His geopolitical vision, scholarly writings, frequent media appearances, and policy advice to decades of presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Barack Obama made him America's grand strategist, a mantle only Henry Kissinger could also claim. Both men emigrated from turbulent Europe in 1938 and got their Ph. D.s in the 1950s from Harvard, then the epitome of the Cold War university. With its rise to global responsibilities, the United States needed professionals. Ambitious academics like Brzezinski soon replaced the old establishment figures who had mired the country in Vietnam, and they transformed the way America conducted foreign policy. Justin Vaïsse offers the first biography of the successful immigrant who completed a remarkable journey from his native Poland to the White House, interacting with influential world leaders from Gloria Steinem to Deng Xiaoping to John Paul II. This complex intellectual portrait reveals a man who weighed in on all major foreign policy debates since the 1950s, from his hawkish stance on the USSR to his advocacy for the Middle East peace process and his support for a U.S.-China global partnership. Through its examination of Brzezinski's statesmanship and comprehensive vision, Zbigniew Brzezinski raises important questions about the respective roles of ideas and identity in foreign policy.--

Les États-Unis dans le monde( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème de couv. indique :"En dépit des nombreux tournants stratégiques qui ont marqué les relations internationales depuis la fin de la guerre froide, les Etats-Unis demeurent la puissance de référence, sans laquelle l'ordre mondial ne saurait être envisagé. Après les guerres néoconservatrices des années 2000 (Afghanistan, Irak), les inflexions opérées par Barack Obama ont eu pour objectif aussi bien de sortir l'Amérique de plusieurs enlisements militaires que de restaurer son image dans le monde. Dans le même temps, la contrainte budgétaire, la montée en puissance de l'Asie, les défis chinois, russes ou issus d'autres puissances encore ont dû être pris en compte. L'une des questions essentielles qui se pose désormais pour l'avenir du système international est de savoir si les orientations politiques des années Obama survivront à leur initiateur. L'Amérique a-t-elle définitivement changé, à la fois dans la sociologie de son débat interne, et dans son approche du monde? Ou allons-nous assister à la fin, qui pourrait être brutale, d'une parenthèse Obama? Cet ouvrage revient sur les facteurs tant internes qu'externes qui déterminent les rapports de l'Amérique au reste du monde, et propose une réflexion stimulante sur les changements et continuités de la politique étrangère américaine."
Transformational diplomacy by Justin Vaïsse( Book )

16 editions published in 2007 in English and French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11 2001 spectacularly demonstrated that America's main security challenges did not stem from traditional power rivalries but rather from "grey areas", failed or badly governed states which are breeding grounds for extremism. Today the emphasis has shifted from focusing on relations between states to acting directly on states themselves, so as to pre-empt the growth of terrorism, arms proliferation, genocide, civil wars etc. After the concept of the "global war on terror", President George W. Bush put forward his "freedom agenda" aiming to promote democracy as a response to the security challenges facing the world, in particular in the Middle East. But overthrowing tyrants and holding elections is not enough to create a stable and well-governed democracy and can even, in some cases, complicate matters, as events between 2003 and 2005 in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Palestinian Authority and Egypt have shown. This is where "transformational diplomacy", the concept inaugurated by Condoleezza Rice in early 2006, comes in. Basically this consists in working with the partners of the United States with a view to "build and sustain democratic, well-governed states that will respond to the needs of their people and conduct themselves responsibly in the international system." To enable this to happen, it is first of all American diplomacy which must transform itself, so as to become less "analytical" and more operational, characterised by direct involvement in foreign societies rather than just being restricted to the realm of foreign policy. This Chaillot Paper explores the scope and limits of this "transformative" action: is the realist paradigm, that of interpower rivalries, really no longer relevant? Can diplomats transform themselves into active promoters of good governance? Are other countries ready to accept them in this role, or will they accuse them of interference? Can transformational diplomacy really change the world?

La politique étrangère des États-Unis : fondements, acteurs, formulation by Justin Vaïsse( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in French and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les attentats de 2001 et les guerres d'Afghanistan et d'Irak ont relancé l'intérêt pour l'étude du système politique américain. Aux États-Unis, plus qu'ailleurs, l'élaboration de la politique étrangère implique une grande diversité d'acteurs, génère d'intenses débats et suppose de longs arbitrages. Cet ouvrage offre un panorama complet du processus de formulation de la politique étrangère américaine. Prenant en compte le droit constitutionnel ou encore la science administrative, les auteurs intègrent les différentes approches de la science politique américaine et des relations internationales pour proposer une véritable analyse de la politique extérieure des États-Unis : ils en établissent les fondements, en décrivent les mécanismes et en identifient les acteurs. Après deux cycles de présidence Bush marqués par le refus du multilatéralisme et l'impuissance de l'hyperpuissance, la deuxième édition de cet ouvrage, entièrement actualisée, pose la question du déclin de la puissance américaine
