United States Foreign Policy And The Prospects For Peace Education from the Author: Carl Mirra. In light of the United States' "age of terrorism" and the controversial involvement in the war in Iraq, U.S. policies toward diplomatic peace education are coming under increasing scrutiny. This book evaluates the prospects for effective U.S. peace education in the context of post-1945 U.S. foreign policy. The work first documents the disparity between U.S. pronouncements about protecting human rights and the country's systematic erosion of those rights in the international arena. Second, it evaluates the challenges that the war on terrorism poses for peace education and explores the importance of international treaties in upholding security. A final section explores new ways of thinking and relating that are ultimately necessary for the realization of nonviolent peacekeeping efforts. Designed as a resource text for U.S. educators, the text offers concrete proposals for addressing contentious foreign policy issues in the classroom and includes an appendix of primary documents and sample questions for easy use.

Still Ours To Lead from the Author: Bruce D. Jones. Is the United States still a "superpower"? How are the rising powers establishing themselves in international politics and security? What is the future of global stability? For over a decade, Bruce Jones has had a front-row seat as the emerging powers—principally China, India, and Brazil, but also Turkey, Indonesia, Korea, and others—thrust themselves onto the global stage. From Delhi to Doha to Beijing to Brasilia, he's met with the politicians, diplomats, business leaders, and scholars of those powers as they craft their strategies for rising influence—and with senior American officials as they forge their response. In Still Ours to Lead, Jones tells a nuanced story of American leadership. He artfully examines the tension between the impulse to rival the United States and the incentives for restraint and cooperation among the rising powers. That balance of rivalry and restraint provides the United States with a continued ability to solve problems and to manage crises at roughly the same rate as when American dominance was unquestioned. Maintaining the balance is central to the question of whether we will live in a stable or unstable system in the period to come. But it just so happens that this challenge plays to America's unique strength—its unparalleled ability to pull together broad and disparate coalitions for action. To succeed, America must adapt its leadership to new realities.

The Israel Lobby And Us Foreign Policy from the Author: John J Mearsheimer. Does America’s pro-Israel lobby wield inappropriate control over US foreign policy? This book has created a storm of controversy by bringing out into the open America’s relationship with the Israel lobby: a loose coalition of individuals and organizations that actively work to shape foreign policy in a way that is profoundly damaging both to the United States and Israel itself. Israel is an important, valued American ally, yet Mearsheimer and Walt show that, by encouraging unconditional US financial and diplomatic support for Israel and promoting the use of its power to remake the Middle East, the lobby has jeopardized America’s and Israel’s long-term security and put other countries – including Britain – at risk.

Dark Crusade from the Author: Clifford A. Kiracofe. Despite its efforts to promote peace and instil democracy in the region, America is viewed by many in the Middle East as a dishonest broker waging a ‘dark crusade’ against its enemies: in covert collaboration with Israel. The crucial hostility to Arab and Palestinian interests of the so-called ‘Zionist lobby’ in the US has long been recognised. But it is another less familiar element in US politics that increasingly calls the shots on Capitol Hill, directing the course of American foreign policy there and beyond: Christian Zionism._x000D_ _x000D_ Clifford A. Kiracofe, Jr, shows to what degree Christian Zionists have now thoroughly infiltrated the Republican Party, and how they also wield enormous influence over both the White House and Congress - an influence that is unlikely to diminish during a Democratic Presidency. Protestants with a feverish anticipation of the end of the world, these hardliners have long made common cause with the most extreme political elements in the state of Israel. But why? Jews and fundamentalist Christians hardly look like natural allies. Adhering to a biblically-derived apocalyptic ideology, that of ‘premillennial dispensationalism’, Christian Zionists have nevertheless come to believe that restoration of the entire Holy Land of the Bible - geographical Palestine - to the Jewish people will result in the thousand-year reign of Christ, as well as their own ‘rapture’ or bodily removal to heaven._x000D_ _x000D_ During his eleven years working in the Senate, the author observed first hand the deep-seated influence of Christian Zionism on American foreign policy, and is uniquely qualified to assess its significance. Dark Crusade offers the most nuanced analysis and history yet written of this dangerous and complex phenomenon, which is arguably one of the most powerful obstacles standing in the way of a lasting peace settlement in the entire Middle East.
