Oil, Illiberalism, and War: An Analysis of Ener...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The United States is addicted to crude oil. In this book, Andrew Price-Smith argues that this addiction has distorted the conduct of American foreign policy in profound and malign ways, resulting in interventionism, exploitation, and other illiberal behaviors that hide behind a facade of liberal internationalism. The symbiotic relationship between the state and the oil industry has produced deviations from rational foreign energy policy, including interventions in Iraq and elsewhere that have been (at the very least) counterproductive or (at worst) completely antithetical to national interests. Liberal internationalism casts the United States as a benign hegemon, guaranteeing security to its allies during the Cold War and helping to establish collaborative international institutions. Price-Smith contends that the "free market" in international oil is largely a myth, rendered problematic by energy statism and the rise of national oil companies. He illustrates the destabilizing effect of oil in the Persian Gulf, and describes the United States' grand energy strategy, particularly in the Persian Gulf, as illiberal at its core, focused on the projection of power and on periodic bouts of violence. Washington's perennial oscillation between liberal phases of institution building and provision of public goods and illiberal bellicosity, Price-Smith argues, represents the shadow liberalism that is at the core of US foreign policy. 1.

A large portion of Britain s Muslims are not assimilating to a high standard of liberal values. Beliefs that many consider extremist are in fact surprisingly common. As the Muslim minority grows in share of Europe s population the situation in society will either become more peaceful, or it will become more violent. This book contends that at present the West is headed toward increasing violence. McDonald argues there is a Multicultural Paradox amongst political, civic, and religious leadership preventing them from responding to degenerate beliefs and visions for the future. Led by its vibrant and diverse capitol Britain must step forward to reframe this problem from one of religion to one of values. Peace will come only by rooting laws, policies, and the bounds of cultural tolerance in the values of freedom. This book will be valuable to Muslims and non- Muslims alike as they confront the challenge of remaining open to faith while protecting the nonnegotiable position of liberal policies as the only viable root of free society.

Rhetorical Citizenship and Public Deliberation
102,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Citizenship has long been a central topic among educators, philosophers, and political theorists. Using the phrase 'rhetorical citizenship' as a unifying perspective, Rhetorical Citizenship and Public Deliberation aims to develop an understanding of citizenship as a discursive phenomenon, arguing that discourse is not prefatory to real action but in many ways constitutive of civic engagement. To accomplish this, the book brings together, in a cross-disciplinary effort, contributions by scholars in fields that rarely intersect. For the most part, discussions of citizenship have focused on aspects that are central to the 'liberal' tradition of social thought-that is, questions of the freedoms and rights of citizens and groups. This collection gives voice to a 'republican' conception of citizenship. Seeing participation and debate as central to being a citizen, this tradition looks back to the Greek city-states and republican Rome. Citizenship, in this sense of the word, is rhetorical citizenship. Rhetoric is thus at the core of being a citizen. Aside from the editors, the contributors are John Adams, Paula Cossart, Jonas Gabrielsen, Jette Barnholdt Hansen, Kasper Møller Hansen, Sine Nørholm Just, Ildikó Kaposi, William Keith, Bart van Klink, Marie Lund Klujeff, Manfred Kraus, Oliver W. Lembcke, Berit von der Lippe, James McDonald, Niels Møller Nielsen, Tatiana Tatarchevskiy, Italo Testa, Georgia Warnke, Kristian Wedberg, and Stephen West.

Forrest McDonald is a legend in his own time. The NEH's sixteenth Jefferson Lecturer he is one of our most eminent historians and the author of numerous provocative works on the early American republic, the Constitution, and the American presidency. Renowned for his sly wit and iconoclasm, he is also a conservative in a mostly liberal profession, a man who believes that his discipline has been subverted by those who serve public policy agendas. He now candidly recounts and reconsiders his own career, mixing in equal measure autobiography with a sharp critique of the historical craft.

What makes a president great? Two of America's most prominent institutions, The Wall Street Journal and the Federalist Society, with the help of a wide array of eminent scholars, journalists, and political leaders, tackle this question in Presidential Leadership, the definitive ranking of our nation's chief executives. Based on a survey conducted by the Federalist Society and the Journal, Presidential Leadership examines presidential performance in this collection of provocative, enlightening essays written by a distinguished and diverse group of authors. The survey included seventy-eight liberal and conservative scholars, balancing the sample to reflect the political makeup of the U.S. population as a whole. It represents the first national survey in book form that provides a complete ranking of the presidents, along with an appendix that explains the methodology in detail and includes a wide range of valuable data. The result is an important, fresh, and engaging book, rating the presidents from Washington to Clinton and including an early assessment of George W. Bush's presidency by Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot. Nearly fifty contributors provide their insights, with one essay on each president or on a broader issue of presidential leadership. Among them: . Forrest McDonald on Thomas Jefferson . Lynne Cheney on James Madison . Douglas Brinkley on James Polk . Christopher Buckley on James Buchanan . Jay Winik on Abraham Lincoln . John McCain on Theodore Roosevelt . Robert Dallek on Lyndon B. Johnson . Peggy Noonan on John F. Kennedy . Paul Johnson on Bill Clinton Their compelling essays, packed with fascinating and often surprising insights, analyze the best and worst of our commanders in chief. Presidential Leadership is the lively result, at once a valuable reference and a tremendously readable collection.
