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 Brokaw, Tom TIME OF OUR LIVES: A CONVERSATION ABOUT AMERICA
Random House Publishing Grou 2012 081297512X / 9780812975123 Paperback Very Good 
Time of Our Lives: A Conversation about America by Tom Brokaw Who we are, where we've been, and where we need to go now, to recapture the American dream Now with a new Foreword by the author "The best presentation of the challenges facing the country--and the possib le solutions--I've ever seen."--P. J. O'Rourke Tom Brokaw, known and beloved for his landmark work in American journalism and for the New York Times bestsellers The Greatest Generation and Boom!, n ow turns his attention to the challenges that face America in the new mille nnium, to offer reflections on how we can restore America's greatness. Rooted in the values, lessons, and verities of generations past and of his South Dakota upbringing, Brokaw weaves together inspiring stories of Americans who are making a difference and personal stories from his own family history, to engage us in a conversation about our country and to share ideas for how we can revitalize the promise of the American Dream. Inviting us to foster a rebirth of family, community, and civic engagement as profound as the one that helped win World War II, built our postwar prosperity, and ushered in the Civil Rights era, Brokaw traces the exciting, unnerving changes in modern life--in values, education, public service, housing, the Internet, and more--that have transformed our society in the decades since the age of thrift in which he was raised. In offering ideas from Americans who are change agents in their communities, Brokaw gives us a nourishing vision of hopefulness in an age of diminished expectations.

9-11, Chomsky, Noam
4 Chomsky, Noam 9-11
Open Media/Seven Stories Pre 2001 1583224890 / 9781583224892 Paperback 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. MIT-based Chomsky revolutionized linguistics in the late Fifties, but for nearly as long he has been better known as an energetic and constructive debunker of American establishment politics and behavior. However, the current Chomsky contributes nothing to the legacy he established decades ago. These two most recent productions do not reveal systematic efforts to sustain or develop any aspect of his prolifically expressed critique; indeed, they are not so much authored as collaged, with Chomsky's sanction, from talks, after-talk Q&As, and interviews with generally converted interlocutors. Understanding Power draws mainly on vintage utterances from the Nineties, and its most penetrating passage takes on, of all pressing matters, literary theory. Chomsky, who is relentless in condemning the media as incapable of any function other than converting the masses to elite desires, just as relentlessly samples mainstream reporting sources for instances of corporate and government ill doings. In trying to illustrate that he is not a crude conspiracy theorist, he conveys the opposite impression. The shorter 9-11 could not have been planned, of course, though it mostly consists of interviews conducted while the calendar still read September, suggesting both the urgency Chomsky felt to get his perspective on the record and his utter disinclination to reexamine any of his cemented opinions about world affairs. Chomsky condemns the attacks specifically and then suggests that the deaths are entir.

COLOSSUS: THE PRICE OF AMERICA'S EMPIRE, Ferguson, Niall
8 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.

The next ten years will be a time of massive transition. The wars in the Is lamic world will be subsiding, and terrorism will become something we learn to live with. China will be encountering its crisis. We will be moving fro m a time when financial crises dominate the world to a time when labor shor tages will begin to dominate. The new century will be taking shape in the n ext decade. In The Next Decade, George Friedman offers readers a pro­vocative and endlessly fascinating prognosis for the immedi­ate future.

11 Golway, Terry AMERICAN POLITICAL SPEECHES
Penguin Publishing Group 2012 0143121952 / 9780143121954 Paperback 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. A selection of speeches by the most inspiring and persuasive orators in Ame rican history Penguin presents a series of six portable, accessible, and-above all-essent ial reads from American political history, selected by leading scholars. Se ries editor Richard Beeman, author of The Penguin Guide to the U.S. Constit ution, draws together the great texts of American civic life to create a ti mely and informative mini-library of perennially vital issues. Whether read ers are encountering these classic writings for the first time, or brushing up in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, these slim volumes will serve as a powerful and illuminating resource for scholar s, students, and civic-minded citizens. American Political Speeches includes the best American rhetoric from inside and outside the White House. Some of the greatest words spoken in American history have come from men and women who lacked the biggest bully pulpit in the country, but who nevertheless were able to move the nation with words. Frederick Douglass explained the irony of Independence Day from the perspective of a slave. Martin Luther King, Jr. described his dream of an interracial America. William Jennings Bryan gave voice to social discontent with a single phrase, "a cross of gold." Barbara Jordan summoned the nation"s outrage during the impeachment hearings against Richard Nixon. And the best presidents, not by coincidence, have tended to be those with an appreciation for the use of languag.

GRAND OLD PARTY: A HISTORY OF THE REPUBLICANS, Gould, Lewis
12 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. For the next presidential election and for other.

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.

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. The European project is in collapse. Far from bringing prosperity and peace, the euro has catalysed an economic crisis and stirred up national antagonisms. We can now see clearly that the intellectual basis of European integration was false. Here is an alternative vision, adumbrated from first principles: a statement of the case for national self-determination and parliamentary supremacy. Daniel Hannan is a committed European. He speaks French and Spanish, has lived and worked all over Europe, and has served in the European Parliament since 1999. He believes that the EU is making its constituent nations poorer, less democratic and less free. It is time to rediscover the virtues that raised Europe to greatness: diversity, pluralism, personal freedom, national independence and parliamentary democracy.

COMMUNICATING IDEAS: THE POLITICS OF SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING, Horowitz, Irving Louis
17 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.

19 Jr., Martin Luther King WHY WE CAN'T WAIT
Penguin Publishing Group 2000 0451527534 / 9780451527530 Paperback 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. Martin Luther King's classic exploration of the events and forces behind th e Civil Rights Movement--including his Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 1 6, 1963. "There comes a time when the cup of endurance runs over, and men are no lon ger willing to be plunged into the abyss of despair." In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in the United States. The campaign launched by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , and the Civil Rights movement on the segregated streets of Birmingham dem onstrated to the world the power of nonviolent direct action. In this remarkable book--winner of the Nobel Peace Prize--Dr. King recounts the story of Birmingham in vivid detail, tracing the history of the strugg le for civil rights back to its beginnings three centuries ago and looking to the future, assessing the work to be done beyond Birmingham to bring abo ut full equality for African Americans. Above all, Dr. King offers an eloqu ent and penetrating analysis of the events and pressures that propelled the Civil Rights movement from lunch counter sit-ins and prayer marches to the forefront of American consciousness. Since its publication in the 1960s, Why We Can't Wait has become an indispu table classic. Now, more than ever, it is an enduring testament to the wise and courageous vision of Martin Luther King, Jr. Includes photographs and an Afterword by Reverend Jesse L. Jackson, Sr.

20 Kaplan, Robert D. ASIA'S CAULDRON
Random House Inc 2014 0812999061 / 9780812999068 Paperback 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 Foreign affairs scholar Kaplan considers the geopolitics of the South China Sea and makes a compelling argument that the strategically important body of water is likely to become the "Mitteleuropa of the twenty-first century," a flashpoint for future regional power struggles with serious international consequences. There are several reasons for this: a broad shift away from land wars in favor of less overt maritime territorial claims, China's patient but unrelenting military buildup, the sheer volume of tonnage passing through the South China Sea, and diminishing American budgets and appetite for global naval hegemony. Though much of the groundwork for his thesis was laid in Monsoon (2010), his book on the Indian Ocean, here Kaplan pays particular attention to Vietnam (the region's emergent power), Malaysia (its success story), the Philippines (its failed state), and Taiwan (its "Berlin"). In support of some of his conclusions, he offers statistics and the logic of realpolitik; for others, travel-diary anecdotes or historical, even classical, analogy. The result is a riveting, multitextured look at an underexamined region of the world and, perhaps, at the "anxious, complicated world" of the future. --Brendan Driscoll.
