Of paradise and power : America and Europe in the new world order by Robert Kagan( Book )

74 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Portuguese and held by 2,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After years of mutual resentment and tension, there is a sudden recognition that the real interests of America and its European allies are diverging sharply and that the trans-atlantic relationship itself has changed, possibly irreversibly. Europe sees the United States as high-handed, unilateralist, and unnecessarily belligerent; the United States sees Europe as spent, unserious, and weak. The anger and mistrust on both sides are hardening into incomprehension. Author Robert Kagan reached incisively into this impasse to force both sides to see themselves through the eyes of the other. Tracing the widely differing histories of Europe and America since the end of World War II, he makes clear how for one the need to escape a bloody past has led to a new set of transnational beliefs about power and threat, while the other has evolved into the guarantor of that "postmodern paradise" by dint of its might and global reach
Dangerous nation by Robert Kagan( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A reevaluation of America's place in the world from the colonial era to the turn of the twentieth century. Foreign-relations expert Kagan strips away the myth of America's isolationist tradition and reveals a more complicated reality: that Americans have been increasing their global power and influence steadily for the past four centuries. Even from the time of the Puritans, he reveals, America was no shining "city upon a hill" but an engine of commercial and territorial expansion that drove Native Americans, as well as French, Spanish, Russian, and ultimately even British power, from the North American continent. Even before the birth of the nation, Americans believed they were destined for global leadership. Underlying their ambitions, Kagan argues, was a set of ideas and ideals about the world and human nature.--From publisher description

2 editions published in 2012 in Japanese and English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What would the world look like if America were to reduce its role as a global leader in order to focus all its energies on solving its problems at home? And is America really in decline?

A twilight struggle : American power and Nicaragua, 1977-1990 by Robert Kagan( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kagan contends that the Carter administration's halfhearted intervention in Nicaragua was in response to American feelings of guilt for Washington's longtime support of the Somoza dynasty. The Reagan-era intervention, on the other hand, originated in American anxiety over Soviet encroachment in the Western hemisphere. Kagan recounts how American popular aversion to the employment of U.S. military muscle in Central America led to the administration's covert support of the contras and goes on to explain how the clash between the Reagan White House and Congress over "freedom fighter" funding led to the Iran-contra affair in 1987. Although the surprising electoral victory of Violeta Chamorro over the Sandinistas was widely recognized as a success for American policy, the U.S. remains caught in a continuous cycle of intervention and withdrawal in Nicaragua, according to Kagan. As a member of the State Department's Policy Planning Staff, Kagan was a direct participant in many of the events described in this authoritative and definitive account of U.S."--Publisher's description

Dynamics of regulatory change : how globalization affects national regulatory policies( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Critics of globalization claim that economic liberalization leads to a lowering of regulatory standards. As capital and corporations move more freely across national boundaries, a race to the bottom results as governments are forced to weaken labor and environmental standards to retain current contracts or attract new business. The essays in this volume argue that, on the contrary, under certain circumstances global economic integration can actually lead to the strengthening of consumer and environmental standards. This volume extends the argument of David Vogel's book Trading Up, which discussed environmental standards, by focusing on the impact of globalization on labor rights, women's rights and capital market regulations--

La puissance et la faiblesse : les États-Unis et l'Europe dans le nouvel ordre mondial by Robert Kagan( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur, membre de la Fondation Carnegie pour la paix internationale, soutient la thèse que les pays d'Europe et les États-Unis ont des visions diamétralement opposées des problèmes stratégiques et internationaux. Alors que les Européens ont évolué vers une conception des rapports internationaux qui délaisse l'emploi de la force pour l'instauration d'un système international basé sur le droit, les Américains sont plutôt les héritiers de Hobbes et basent leur action sur la supériorité due à la force. D'où un antagonisme croissant entre les deux entités. [SDM]

Has Obama made the world a more dangerous place? : Stephens and Kagan vs. Zakaria and Slaughter : the Munk debate on U.S. foreign policy( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Ukraine to the Middle East to China, the United States is redefining its role in international affairs. Alliance building, public diplomacy, and eschewing traditional warfare in favor of the focused use of hard power such as drones and special forces are all hallmarks of the so-called Obama Doctrine. Is this a farsighted foreign policy for the United States and the world in the twenty-first century -- one that acknowledges and embraces the increasing diffusion of power among states and non-state actors? Or, is an America "leading from behind" a boon for the nations and blocs who want to roll back economic globalization, international law, and the spread of democracy and human rights? In this edition of the 14th semi-annual Munk Debates, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bret Stephens and famed historian and foreign policy commentator Robert Kagan square off against CNN's Fareed Zakaria and noted academic and political commentator Anne-Marie Slaughter. With ISIS looking to reshape the Middle East, Russia increasingly at odds with the rest of the West, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at a standstill, the Munk Debate on U.S. Foreign Policy asks: Has Obama's foreign policy taken the U.S. in the right direction?--Provided by publisher
