The American Search for Peace

These are what eight accomplished philosophers, political scientists, Christian ethicists, and policymakers came together to discuss.

The American Search for Peace

Revolutions and aborted revolutions and bitter civil and "local" wars in the 1980s and since have raised new questions about national security, its definition, and its implementation. Nevertheless, a number of basic philosophical and political issues remain constant at a level deeper than tactical considerations. These are what eight accomplished philosophers, political scientists, Christian ethicists, and policymakers came together to discuss. They ask the fundamental and perduring questions of pacifism, war, intervention, and political negotiation. They focus on such problems as ascertaining the role of the churches in the quest for peace, defining "national interest" and "national purpose," and construing intervention in other that strictly unilateral terms.

The American Search for Mideast Peace

This analytical volume distills the events of the past two decades beginning by identifying the hope for Middle East peace that gripped Washington in 1967 and then examining the steps that cumulatively undermined that goal.

The American Search for Mideast Peace

Tschirgi synthesizes and interprets a large amount of information gleaned from personal accounts, partisan critiques, government documents, and the public record to portray and explain the current state of the U.S. search for Mideast peace. This analytical volume distills the events of the past two decades beginning by identifying the hope for Middle East peace that gripped Washington in 1967 and then examining the steps that cumulatively undermined that goal. Tschirgi concludes that both the normative and structural aspects of peace as envisaged by Washington in 1967 are now probably beyond attainment.

The Search for Peace in Vietnam  1964 1968

The Search for Peace in Vietnam, 1964-1968, the newest edition in the Texas A&M University Press Series on Foreign Relations and the Presidency, is a collection of essays that analyze the Vietnam War in terms of its significance to the global arena. Under the guidance of editors Lloyd C. Gardner and Ted Gittinger, the contributors, representing both communist and capitalist backgrounds, examine whether the Vietnam War was responsible for the transformation of the international system, using a formula postulated by series editor H. W. Brands, which looks at the international system at the beginning of the war and at the end, and measuring how much of the difference in the two periods is the result of the war. Topics include Robert J. McMahon's assessment of the war's legacy to Southeast Asia; Xiaoming Zhang's analysis of Chinese involvement as an element in the Sino-Soviet rivalry; Ilya Gaiduk's account of the Soviet Indochina policy within the context of Moscow's relations with the outside world; Judith A. Klinghoffer's examination of the war's role in determining American foreign policy in the Middle East; Hiroshi Fujimoto's discussion of whether America's Cold War policy of regionalism affected Japan's economic prosperity; and other analyses by H. W. Brands, Lloyd C. Gardner, Robert K. Brigham, Frank Costigliola, Kil J. Yi, and Quang Zhai. John Prados ends the book questioning whether the Vietnam War was, in essence, just a sideshow in international relations and attempts to understand the war's place in the world and its impact on the place of the United States. The Search for Peace in Vietnam, 1964-1968 brings together a diverse group of scholars representing various viewpoints and backgrounds regarding the Vietnam War. The book breaks free from the mold of many American analyses of Vietnam, which place the war solely in the context of America's involvement and detriment, and endeavors to look further for both causes and effects. A true scholarly work, The Search for Peace in Vietnam, 1964-1968 challenges readers to think about this pivotal point in international history in a new way.

Ending Europe s Wars

"In Ending Europe's Wars, Jonathan Dean, a widely recognized expert on European security issues, evaluates the prospects for peace in Europe as a test case for world security. Dean analyzes the current and potential conflicts in Europe and assesses the performance of the multilateral security institutions active in Europe - the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE), the Western European Union (WEU), and the United Nations itself - in coping with these challenges. He presents a wide range of innovative proposals for dealing with continuing nuclear dangers in Russia, for bringing NATO, WEU, and CSCE together in a single effective European security organization, and for defusing the ethnic hatreds that have already caused at least five bloody wars." "Ending Europe's Wars traces the dramatic course of change in Europe - perestroika, the liberation of Eastern Europe, the collapse of the Soviet Union - to uncover the roots of today's problems. The author shows how these positive developments have also brought real or potential threats to European security: the Russian confrontation with Ukraine; the uncertainties surrounding Russian military intervention in neighboring republics; the possibility that Russia's nuclear arsenal could get out of control; massive population movements sparking racism and intolerance in Western Europe; tragic, unresolved ethnic conflicts in the former Yugoslavia and the states bordering Russia; a resurgent Germany; and growing confrontation with fundamentalist Islam." "Dean describes the numerous military constraints, cooperative procedures for conflict prevention, and organizational changes that have made European security institutions and the confidence-building measures and arms limitations they are based on the most comprehensive and ambitious regional security system in recorded history. He demonstrates why these institutions have nonetheless coped inadequately with Europe's emerging wars, especially in the former Yugoslavia, and how they can be radically improved. Dean concludes that the job of constructing an effective European security system is only half done. The present system could move either toward greater control over conflict or toward slow collapse and renationalization and the expansion of the armed forces of individual European countries. Either outcome will have a decisive effect on the future of the United Nations and global security."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Routledge Handbook of Military Ethics

The Routledge Handbook of Military Ethics is a comprehensive reference work that addresses concerns held in common by the military services of many nations. It attempts to discern both moral dilemmas and clusters of moral principles held in common by all practitioners of this profession, regardless of nation or culture. Comprising essays by contributors drawn from the four service branches (Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine corps) as well as civilian academics specializing in this field, this handbook discusses the relationship of "ethics" in the military setting to applied and professional ethics generally. Leading scholars and senior military practitioners from countries including the US, UK, France, China, Australia and Japan, discuss various national cultural views of the moral dimensions of military service. With reference to the responsibilities of professional orientation and education, as well as the challenges posed by recent technological developments, this handbook examines the difficulties underpinning the fundamental framework of military service. This book will be of much interest to students of military studies, war theory, ethics philosophy, sociology, war and conflict studies, and security studies.

An American Requiem

National Book Award winner: This story of a family torn apart by the Vietnam era is “a magnificent portrayal of two noble men who broke each other’s hearts” (Booklist). James Carroll grew up in a Catholic family that seemed blessed. His father, who had once dreamed of becoming a priest, instead began a career in J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, rising through the ranks and eventually becoming one of the most powerful men in the Pentagon, the founder of the Defense Intelligence Agency. Young Jim lived a privileged life, dating the daughter of a vice president and meeting the pope—all in the shadow of nuclear war, waiting for the red telephone to ring in his parents’ house. James fulfilled the goal his father had abandoned, becoming a priest himself. His feelings toward his father leaned toward worship as well—until the tumult of the 1960s came between them. Their disagreements, over Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement; turmoil in the Church; and finally, Vietnam—where the elder Carroll chose targets for US bombs—began to outweigh the bond between them. While one of James’s brothers fled to Canada, another was in law enforcement ferreting out draft dodgers. James, meanwhile, served as a chaplain at Boston University, protesting the war in the streets but ducking news cameras to avoid discovery. Their relationship would never be the same again. Only after Carroll left the priesthood to become a writer, and a husband with children of his own, did he begin to understand fully the struggles his father had faced. In An American Requiem, the New York Times bestselling author of Constantine’s Sword and Christ Actually offers a benediction, in “a moving memoir of the effect of the Vietnam War on his family that is at once personal and the story of a generation . . . at once heartbreaking and heroic, this is autobiography at its best” (Publishers Weekly).
