Japan rising : the resurgence of Japanese power and purpose by Kenneth B Pyle( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 870 libraries worldwide
"In Japan Rising, Kenneth B. Pyle explores the remarkable history of Japan's shifting foreign policy over the last 150 years. He identifies the common threads that bind the divergent strategies of modern Japan, arguing that few countries in recent history have been as responsive to the forces of the international environment. As we enter the new century and Japan once again changes course, the implications for our alliance and the balance of power in Asia are huge. Japan Rising is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand how Japan arrived at this moment - and what to expect in the future."--BOOK JACKET

Top heavy : the increasing inequality of wealth in America and what can be done about it by Edward N Wolff( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 638 libraries worldwide
Top Heavy provides the clearest picture available of the growing gap between rich and poor in America, and a compelling proposal to help correct it. In the second part of the book, Wolff examines the varying wealth taxes in Europe and proposes a progressive alternative to the "flat tax" for the United States - a Swiss-style, direct wealth tax that would raise about $40 billion per year. Top Heavy is a compelling argument for reaffirming the principle that taxation should be based on ability to pay and a persuasive plan for correcting some of the vast and growing inequities in American society

Calming the Ferghana Valley : development and dialogue in the heart of Central Asia : report of the Ferghana Valley Working Group of the Center for Preventive Action by Nancy Lubin( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
This case study of the Ferghana Valley by the working group of the Centre for Preventive Action assesses the potential of conflict in Central Asia and offers recommendations for conflict prevention in this region. The Ferghana Valley intersects Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan and includes a mix of ethnic, religious and social groups. The key premise of the project is that tensions in Central Asia stem partly from these schisms and also from a range of other factors like economic and political, environmental, organized crime and security, all of which have long proved incendiary in this region. A long term strategy of conflict prevention would require region-wide policies towards Central Asia as well as policies focused on the Freghana Valley

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 214 libraries worldwide
"Last year, the Supreme Court reached an even more monumental decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, further inhibiting what Congress can do to regulate campaigns. That unwelcome development prompted the Brennan Center to join forces again with The Century Foundation to publish a new collection of essays, this time focused on Citizens United. Although we are clearly fighting an uphill battle ... we remain convinced that the influence of money on American democracy denigrates the integrity of the republic"--Foreword, p. vii

America's mission : the United States and the worldwide struggle for democracy by Tony Smith( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
America's Mission argues that the global strength and prestige of democracy today are due in large part to America's impact on international affairs. Tony Smith documents the extraordinary history of how American foreign policy has been used to try to promote democracy worldwide, an effort that enjoyed its greatest triumphs in the occupations of Japan and Germany but suffered huge setbacks in Latin America, Vietnam, and elsewhere. With new chapters and a new introduction and epilogue, this expanded edition also traces U.S. attempts to spread democracy more recently, under presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama, and assesses America's role in the Arab Spring

In this Fred Friendly seminar moderated by Harvard Law School's Charles Ogletree, a what-if scenario revolves around a university's efforts to enroll a diverse student body of qualified candidates. Panelists include Ward Connerly, proponent of Carlifornia's Proposition 209; Christopher Edley, Fr., director of the recent White House review of affirmative action; Julius Becton, Jr., former head of Washington, D.C.'s public schools; Ruth Simmons, president of Smith College; and policy activists from the African-American, Asian, Native American, and Latino communities"--Container

Afghanistan : negotiating peace : the report of the Century Foundation international task force on Afghanistan in its regional and multilateral dimensions by Lakhdar Brahimi( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Stalemate has been reached in the war in Afghanistan and the time to begin the political process to end the fighting is now, according to this report. Co-opting the Taliban to join the regime in Kabul is unlikely to bring peace; reconciliation with all the insurgents will eventually require a broader political framework to end the war. International involvement will be necessary, and the withdrawal of the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force will almost certainly be an essential component of a settlement. Enforcing a settlement will most likely require UN peacekeeping troops, and winning the peace will require the active involvement of international institutions and development agencies, particularly the World Bank and Asian Development Bank. In addition, the involvement of Pakistan and other neighbors of Afghanistan will be essential
