8 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 202 libraries worldwide
"Communicating with the World of Islam draws from the lessons learned in the cold war broadcasting experience to suggest the best ways of organizing U.S. efforts to communicate with Islamic people around the globe." "Drawn from discussions at the seminar "Communicating with the Islamic World," this report examines the impact that Voice of America, Radio Liberty, the BBC, Radio Free Europe, and other broadcasting tools had and suggests how the United States can use these instruments today to counter extremism effectively, promote democracy, and improve understanding of the United States in the Islamic world. It details current broadcasting efforts into Islamic countries and the Muslim communities of Europe and explains each of the critical factors necessary to influence the world of Islam in a positive direction, such as stressing women's content programming, maintaining pressure on the rulers of Qatar over the content and programming of Al Jazeera, and keeping news content candid, tailored to local audiences, and unsparingly accurate."--Jacket

Reykjavik revisited : steps toward a world free of nuclear weapons : complete report of the 2007 Hoover Institution conference by George Pratt Shultz( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
"The essays in Reykjavik Revisited essentially address three topics. They address specific actions to reduce and redeploy nuclear weapons en route to zero and key challenges to implementing them. The second concern addressed is preventing the proliferation of new nuclear weapons capabilities and the growth of new dangers, while at the same time the number of weapons is being reduced. The third category, a diplomatic offensive, addresses the diplomatic challenge to turn the effort of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons into a joint international effort at the highest levels of government. The appendixes include the conference agenda, a list of participants, and the articles that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on January 4, 2007, "A World Free of Nuclear Weapons" and on January 15, 2008, "Toward a Nuclear-Free World.""--Jacket
Implications of the Reykjavik summit on its twentieth anniversary : conference report by Sidney D Drell( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 174 libraries worldwide
"Alexandra Andreevna Voronine and her mother lived in Kharkov alone, destitute, and fearing for their lives because of World War I, revolution, civil war, and famine. When Alexandra went to work in 1921 at the office that was coordinating Russian and foreign famine relief, she met Captain Vidkun Quisling, Fridtjof Nansen's representative in the Ukraine. In 1922, at the age of seventeen, she married the man whose name became synonymous with traitor during World War II and accompanied him to Oslo." "Abandoned in Paris within a year, penniless and unaware of being a pawn in a game of international intrigue, Alexandra remained under Quisling's strict control for several more years. When her tumultuous life eventually took her to China, she married W. George Yourieff, who supported her efforts to recall and analyze her years as Quisling's wife. A further tide of events saw the Yourieffs settled in California, and in 1980 they began a collaboration with the Norwegian-born historian and novelist Kirsten A. Seaver. The archives Seaver consulted in London and Oslo and at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University confirmed Alexandra's intensely personal, episodic recollections about an extraordinary life and provided the necessary connective tissue. They also revealed to Alexandra at long last the brutal story behind her lost years."--Jacket

Taking on Iran : strength, diplomacy, and the Iranian threat by Abraham D Sofaer( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Abraham D. Sofaer argues that US policy toward Iran cannot safely be restricted to a strategy that considers only the two high-risk, costly, and potentially infeasible options of a preventive attack on Iran's nuclear facilities or containing a nuclear-armed Iran. Instead, the United States should respond forcefully to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) aggression, enhancing its credibility and increasing the likelihood that Iran will negotiate in earnest. The United States must also be prepared to engage Iran in a disciplined manner, avoiding disabling preconditions and adopting the negotiating practices used successfully by the United States when dealing with the Soviet Union during the 1980s
DETERRENCE : Its Past and Future : Papers Presented at Hoover Institution, November 2010 by George Pratt Shultz( Book )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
Drawn from the third in a series of conferences the Hoover Institution at Stanford University on the nuclear legacy of the cold war, this report examines the importance of deterrence, from its critical function in the cold war to its current role. Recognizing that today's international environment is radically different from that which it was during the cold war, the need is pressing to reassess the role of nuclear weapons in deterrence in the world of today and to look ahead to the future
The nuclear enterprise : high-consequence accidents : how to enhance safety and minimize risks in nuclear weapons and reactors by Sidney D Drell( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
Nuclear energy can provide great benefits to society; in the form of nuclear weapons, however, it can cause death and destruction on an unparalleled scale. The challenge is how to deal with the catastrophic risk of the nuclear enterprise so as to preserve its positive elements and make economic sense. In this book, an expert group of contributors attempts to answer two key questions facing the nuclear enterprise: (1) What can and should be done to improve operations and public understanding of the risks and consequences of major incidents? (2) How can informed scientists, economists, and journalists interact more effectively in understanding and reporting to the public on the most important issues affecting risks, consequences, and costs? Drawn from a conference held at Stanford University's Hoover Institution on October 3-4, 2011, the papers presented in The Nuclear Enterprise were prepared by specialists on various aspects of this challenging topic, including technical safety, management operations, regulatory measures, and the importance of accurate communication by the media. It is their hope that the findings of the conference will contribute to discussion and then actions to better contain and eliminate growing global dangers
Nuclear security : the problems and the road ahead by George Pratt Shultz( Book )
8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"Concern about the threat posed by nuclear weapons has preoccupied the United States and presidents of the United States since the beginning of the nuclear era. Nuclear Security draws from papers presented at the 2013 meeting of the American Nuclear Society examining worldwide efforts to control nuclear weapons and ensure the safety of the nuclear enterprise of weapons and reactors against catastrophic accidents. The distinguished contributors, all known for their long-standing interest in getting better control of the threats posed by nuclear weapons and reactors, discuss what we can learn from past successes and failures and attempt to identify the key ingredients for a road ahead that can lead us toward a world free of nuclear weapons. The authors review historical efforts to deal with the challenge of nuclear weapons, with a focus on the momentous arms control negotiations between U.S. president Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. They offer specific recommendations for reducing risks that should be adopted by the nuclear enterprise, both military and civilian, in the United States and abroad. Since the risks posed by the nuclear enterprise are so high, they conclude, no reasonable effort should be spared to ensure safety and security."--Back cover
Turmoil and triumph : my years as Secretary of State by George Pratt Shultz( Book )
10 editions published between 1920 and 1993 in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
George P. Shultz has written a towering book, a brilliant personal account of his years (1982-1989) as secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan. Not since Dean Acheson or Henry Kissinger has a former secretary of state written so deftly and articulately about the forging of a new, stronger foreign policy for America. When Secretary Shultz joined the Reagan cabinet, war raged in Lebanon, the Soviets were escalating the arms race, terrorism was at fever pitch. Yet his relentless determination - his use of strength in tandem with diplomacy - led to bold initiatives in the Middle East, new strategies for peace with the Soviets that transformed the superpower relationship, a strengthening of our hand in Asia and in Central and South America, and the forward march of democracy. There are behind-the-scenes talks with the Palestinians and Israelis, critical meetings with the Soviets, and frank discussions with the Japanese and Chinese. There is also a surprisingly close-up look at the power struggle of the State Department with the staffs of the National Security Council and the White House and with the CIA, climaxing in the Iran-Contra affair. The events of Iran-Contra set out here can only be described as astounding. It is the first complete assembling of the facts from Secretary Shultz's vantage point and is destined to provoke a reassessment of this period in our history. George Shultz paints vivid portraits of the major players during his term in office. On the world scene: Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, Helmut Kohl, Yasuhiro Nakasone, Deng Xiaoping, Yitzhak Shamir, Yitzhak Rabin, King Hussein, and Hosni Mubarak. And on the domestic scene: Cap Weinberger, Bill Casey, George Bush, Don Regan, Ed Meese, and Jim Baker. His most stunning portrayal, though, is of Ronald Reagan. Secretary Shultz's assessment of Reagan is as revealing as it is startling. In Turmoil and Triumph, George Shultz documents it all - the hows and the whys, the personalities at play - so that it reads like high drama and "living history." Certainly no other book by a member of the Reagan administration has this depth of purpose, this scope, this degree of revelation, or makes a contribution of this significance
Track two diplomacy in theory and practice by Peter L Jones( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Track Two diplomacy consists of informal dialogues among influential people, who are usually not officials, which are intended to develop new ideas and new relationships which can assist the process of resolving conflicts. Sadly, those involved in official diplomacy and many track Two practitioners are often unaware of the realities and pressures of one another's worlds. And those interested in the academic study of Track two sometimes fail to understand the challenges faced by either set of practitioners. This book bridges the divides between these constituencies to provide a comprehensive picture of the range of activities pursued in Track two initiatives and to provoke new thinking about how these activities relate to each other, to official diplomacy, and to academe. -- Back cover
