The cult of the presidency : America's dangerous devotion to executive power by Gene Healy( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 554 libraries worldwide
The Bush years justifiably gave rise to fears of a new imperial presidency. Yet despite the controversy surrounding the administration's expansive claims of executive power, both Left and Right agree on the boundless nature of presidential responsibility. The imperial presidency is the price we seem to be willingly and dangerously agreeable to pay in order to make the office the focus of our national hopes and dreams. Interweaving historical scholarship, legal analysis, and cultural commentary, author Healy argues that the Presidency needs to be reined in, its powers checked and supervised, and its wartime authority put back under the oversight of the Congress and the courts. Only then will we begin to return the Presidency to its proper, constitutionally limited role.--From publisher description

Fool's errands : America's recent encounters with nation building by Gary Dempsey( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 357 libraries worldwide
In the decade following the end of the Cold War the United States undertook several nation-building missions around the globe, most of which have failed. We said we'd bring order to Somalia, but we left chaos. We went to Haiti to restore democracy, but left tyranny. We intervened in Kosovo to create a multiethnic democracy, but we may become embroiled in renewed strife and bloodshed. This extremely timely book cuts through the excuses and uncovers the causes of Washington's pattern of failure

Exiting Iraq : why the U.S. must end the military occupation and renew the war against Al Qaeda : report of a special task force by Christopher A Preble( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 265 libraries worldwide
Within months of the United States and its coalition partners toppling Saddam Husseins government, the Cato Institute convened a special task force of scholars and policy experts to examine U.S. strategic interests in Iraq and to question the Bush administrations intention to 2stay as long as necessary. 3 The result of their efforts was a book of their analysis that was published near the one-year anniversary of the occupation -- Exiting Iraq. As the war now enters its fourth year, Exiting Iraq remains as clear and incisive as ever, with the added dimension of its being so prophetic in what it saw, predicted, and urgently recommended. In addition to the members (listed below) of the special task force calling for the military occupation to end they showed how the presence of troops in Iraq distracts attention from fighting al-Qaeda and emboldens a new class of terrorists to take up arms against the United States. Moreover, the report underscores how the occupation is enormously costly for American taxpayers, exposes our men and women in uniform to unnecessary risks, and undermines attempts to foster political and economic reform in the region. - Publisher
