2 Beinart, Peter The Icarus Syndrome: A History of American Hubris
Harper 2010 0061456462 / 9780061456466 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
"Why do we succumb to hubris? Peter Beinart has written a highly intelligen t and wonderfully readable book that answers the question by looking at a c entury of American foreign policy. As with everything Beinart writes, it is lucid, thoughtful and strikingly honest." - Fareed Zakaria, author of The Post-American World "Peter Beinart has written a vivid, empathetic, and convincing history of t he men and ideas that have shaped the ambitions of American foreign policy during the last century-a story in which human fallibility and idealism flo w together. The story continues, of course, and so his book is not only tim ely; it is indispensible." - Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars Peter Beinart, one of the nation's leading political writers, offers a provocative and strikingly original account of American hubris throughout history-and how we learn from the tragedies that result.

3 Bosco, David Rough Justice: The International Criminal Court in a World of Power Politic s
Oxford University Press 2014 0199844135 / 9780199844135 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Ten years ago, in the wake of massive crimes in central Africa and the Balk ans, the first permanent international criminal court was established in Th e Hague despite resistance from some of the world's most powerful states. I n the past decade, the court has grown from a few staff in an empty buildin g to a bustling institution with more than a thousand lawyers, investigator s, and administrators from around the world. Despite its growth and the bac king of more than 120 nations, the ICC is still struggling to assert itself in often turbulent political crises. The ICC is generally autonomous in its ability to select cases and investig ate crimes, but it is ultimately dependent on sovereign states, and particu larly on the world's leading powers. These states can provide the diplomati c, economic, and military clout the court often needs to get cooperation-an d to arrest suspects. But states don't expend precious political capital li ghtly, and the court has often struggled to get the help it needs. When the ir interests are most affected, moreover, powerful states usually want the court to keep its distance. Directly and indirectly, they make their prefer ences known in The Hague. Rough Justice grapples with the court's basic dilemma: designed to be apolitical, it requires the support of politicians who pursue national interests and answer to domestic audiences. Through a sharp analysis of the dynamics at work behind the scenes, Bosco assesses the ways in which powerful states have shaped

Colossus: The Price of America's Empire, Ferguson, Niall
6 Ferguson, Niall Colossus: The Price of America's Empire
Penguin Press 2004 1594200130 / 9781594200137 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Is America an empire? Certainly not, according to our government. Despite t he conquest of two sovereign states in as many years, despite the presence of more than 750 military installations in two thirds of the world's countr ies and despite his stated intention "to extend the benefits of freedom...t o every corner of the world," George W. Bush maintains that "America has ne ver been an empire." "We don't seek empires," insists Defense Secretary Rum sfeld. "We're not imperialistic." Nonsense, says Niall Ferguson. In Colossus he argues that in both military and economic terms America is nothing less than the most powerful empire the world has ever seen. Just like the British Empire a century ago, the United States aspires to globalize free markets, the rule of law, and representative government. In theory it's a good project, says Ferguson. Yet Americans shy away from the long-term commitments of manpower and money that are indispensable if rogue regimes and failed states really are to be changed for the better. Ours, he argues, is an empire with an attention deficit disorder, imposing ever more unrealistic timescales on its overseas interventions. Worse, it's an empire in denial--a hyperpower that simply refuses to admit the scale of its global responsibilities. And the negative consequences will be felt at home as well as abroad. In an alarmingly persuasive final chapter Ferguson warns that this chronic myopia also applies to our domestic responsibilities. When overstretch comes, he

9 Gould, Lewis Grand Old Party: A History of the Republicans
Random House 2003 0375507418 / 9780375507410 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
From Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War through the disputed election of Geo rge W. Bush and beyond, the Republican Party has been at the dramatic cente r of American politics for 150 years. In this exciting new book, the Žrst c omprehensive history of the Republicans in 40 years, Lewis L. Gould traces the evolution of the Grand Old Party from its emergence as an antislavery c oalition in the 1850s to its current role as the champion of political and social conservatism. Gould brings to life the major Žgures of Republican hi story--Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Ro nald Rea-gan, and George W. Bush--and uncovers a wealth of fascinating anec dotes about Republicans, from "the Plumed Knight," James G. Blaine, in the 1880s, to Barry Goldwater in the 1960s, to Newt Gingrich in the 1990s. Goul d also uncovers the historical forces and issues that have made the Republi cans what they are: the crusade against slavery, the rise of big business, the Cold War, and opposition to the power of the federal government. Written with balance and keen insight, Grand Old Party is required reading for anyone interested in American politics. Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike will Žnd their understanding of national politics deepened and enriched. Based on Gould's research in the papers of leading Republi-cans and his wide reading in the party's history, Grand Old Party is a book that will outlast the noisy tumult of today's partisan debates and endure as a deŽnitive treatment of how the Republicans have shaped the way Americans live together in a democracy.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Used wisely, America's immense military power can preserve freedom but used unwisely, it can fracture global stability. Stefan Halper and Jonathan Clarke argue, that as long as neo-conservative radicals dominate the nation's national security process, fracture is more likely. Assuming Americans will see increasing threats in the future, this book is important because it identifies the factions and agendas involved. It advocates an alternative approach based on a return to the mainstream principles that have successfully guided American diplomacy for half a century. years.

13 Held, David Global Transformations: Politics, Economics, and Culture
Stanford University Press 1999 0804736278 / 9780804736275 Paperback Very Good 
In this book, the authors set forth a new model of globalization that lays claims to supersede existing models, and then use this model to assess the way the processes of globalization have operated in different historic peri ods in respect to political organization, military globalization, trade, fi nance, corporate productivity, migration, culture, and the environment. Eac h of these topics is covered in a chapter which contrasts the contemporary nature of globalization with that of earlier epochs. In mapping the shape and political consequences of globalization, the autho rs concentrate on six states in advanced capitalist societies (SIACS): the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Germany, and Japan. For comparative purposes, other states-particularly those with developing econo mics-are referred to and discussed where relevant. The book concludes by sy stematically describing and assessing contemporary globalization, and appra ising the implications of globalization for the sovereignty and autonomy of SIACS. It also confronts directly the political fatalism that surrounds mu ch discussion of globalization with a normative agenda that elaborates the possibilities for democratizing and civilizing the unfolding global transfo rmation.

14 Horowitz, Irving Louis Communicating Ideas: The Politics of Scholarly Publishing
Transaction Publishers 1991 0887388981 / 9780887388989 Paperback Good 
Communicating Ideas is the first attempt to place publishing in America in its political and commercial setting. The book addresses the political impl ications of scholarly communication in the era of the new computerized tech nology. Horowitz does so by examining classic problems of political theory in the context of property rights versus the presumed right to know, and th e special strains involved in publishing as a business versus information a s a public trust Offering a knowledgeable and insightful view of publishing in America and abroad, this book makes an important contribution to the st udy of mass culture in advanced societies. The discussion ranges considerably beyond scholarly publications into commu nication as a whole, encompassing a wide range of issues from cable and sat elite television control to specialized issues in copyright legislation, th e prize system in publishing, and the definition of standards of the indust ry. This new edition, expanded by fully one third, expands on such themes, and in addition deals with Horowitz's new research on the history of social science publishing. The first edition, published in 1986, was described by WE. Coleman as "a marvelous book which indeed offers a realistic analysis of publishing." John P. Dessauer declared that "no one thinking seriously about the future of scholarly communication can afford to ignore his work, in particular his treatment of basic issues." Joseph Gusfield (Los Angeles Times), in his review, noted that "Horowitz is alive to the possibilities and barriers for academics to reach a wider audience and for lay persons to utilize scholarship.

Resource Wars: The New Landscape of Global Conflict, Klare, Michael
16 Klare, Michael Resource Wars: The New Landscape of Global Conflict
Metropolitan Books 2001 0805055754 / 9780805055757 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This sobering look at the future of warfare predicts that conflicts will no w be fought over diminishing supplies of our most precious natural resource s. From the barren oilfields of Central Asia to the lush Nile delta, from the busy shipping lanes of the South China Sea to the uranium mines and diamond fields of sub-Saharan Africa, Resource Wars looks at the growing impact of resource scarcity on the military policies of nations. International secur ity expert Michael T. Klare argues that in the early decades of the new mil lennium wars will be fought not over ideology but over resources, as states battle to control dwindling supplies of precious natural commodities. The political divisions of the Cold War, Klare asserts, are giving way to an im mense global scramble for essential materials, such as oil, timber, mineral s, and water. And as armies throughout the world define resource security a s their primary mission, widespread instability is bound to follow, especia lly in those places where resource competition overlaps with long-standing disputes over territorial rights. A much-needed assessment of a changed world, Resource Wars is a compelling look at the future of warfare in an era of heightened environmental stress and accelerated economic competition.

17 Krieger, Joel The Oxford Companion to Politics of the World
Oxford University Press 1993 0195059344 / 9780195059342 Hardcover Good/Good 
Will the end of superpower rivalry bring greater international harmony--or more volatile and dangerously unpredictable conflicts? Where two massive sp heres of influence once divided the globe, now regional conflicts erupt int o scenes of tragedy and confusion. In Africa, the new Europe, Asia, and the Americas, nations chart a bold course toward democracy. But they cannot br eak free of old divisions, as ethnic nationalism emerges amidst economic de vastation. Indeed, nations everywhere, however powerful, are buffeted on ev ery side. Their sovereignty is checked by the global economy as well as pow erful regional economic and political blocs. At a time of exceptional ferme nt, Oxford is pleased to present the most authoritative, timely, in-depth r eference available for understanding the people, nations, conflicts, moveme nts, institutions, and issues that dominate the world political stage.

19 Lakoff, George Moral Politics: What Conservatives Know That Liberals Don't
University Of Chicago Press 1997 0226468054 / 9780226468051 Paperback Very Good 
Moral Politics takes a fresh look at how we think and talk about political and moral ideas. George Lakoff analyzed recent political discussion to find that the family-especially the ideal family-is the most powerful metaphor in politics today. Revealing how family-based moral values determine views on diverse issues as crime, gun control, taxation, social programs, and the environment, George Lakoff looks at how conservatives and liberals link mo rality to politics through the concept of family and how these ideals diver ge. Arguing that conservatives have exploited the connection between morali ty, the family, and politics, while liberals have failed to recognized it, Lakoff explains why conservative moral position has not been effectively ch allenged. A wake up call to political pundits on both the left and the righ t, this work redefines how Americans think and talk about politics.
