The most significant change over the past two decades in the way the United States makes foreign and defense policy has been the resurgence of congressional activity. On issues as prominent as the Gulf war and as little-noticed as aid to the International Monetary Fund, members of Congress have sought significant influence over foreign and defense policy. Congress Resurgent is a complete examination of this recent phenomenon. The contributors look at the constraints and pressures put on Congress as it addresses foreign policy and the institutional processes that enable it to legislate foreign policy. The various perspectives combine to make clear the real impact Congress has on foreign policy. Students and scholars both of international affairs and of the legislative process will be enlightened by this careful study.

American Labor Unions in the Electoral Arena (Paperback): Herbert B. Asher, Eric S. Heberlig, Randall B. Ripley, Karen Snyder American Labor Unions in the Electoral Arena (Paperback)
Herbert B. Asher, Eric S. Heberlig, Randall B. Ripley, Karen Snyder

Are contemporary U.S. labor unions irrelevant, or in fact a changing force to be reckoned with as they grow into a new economy in a globalized America? Is the current political power exercised by U.S. labor unions more akin to the social movements of the sixties or the interest politics of the nineties? After winning the presidency of the AFL-CIO in 1995, John Sweeney and his colleagues have taken strides to make labor more important in the United States economically and politically, despite reduced membership. Here, four authors come together to survey the status of labor unions past, present, and future, nationally as well as through the microcosm of the labor situation in Ohio, one of the largest, most representative, and most electorally significant states in the country. The authors focus on union membership, leadership, political attitudes, strategies, and grassroots mobilization to paint a picture of union revitalization in a context of economic and social change. American labor still wields clout on Election Day, but union revitalization is a work in progress. For unions to matter every day to their members and leaders, they must consolidate their economic bases and rise to the challenges carefully documented in this book.

US Foreign Policy After The Cold War (Hardcover): Randall B. Ripley, James M. Lindsay US Foreign Policy After The Cold War (Hardcover)
Randall B. Ripley, James M. Lindsay
R1,378 Discovery Miles 13 780 Out of stock

The cold war came to a grinding halt during the astounding developments of 1989-1991.The Berlin Wall fell, Eastern European countries freed themselves from Soviet domination, and the Soviet Union itself disintegrated after witnessing a failed coup presumably aimed at restoring a communist dictatorship. Suddenly the "evil empire" was no more, and the raison d'etre for most post-World War II U.S. foreign policy vanished.

What has happened to the content of U.S. foreign policy and to the bureaucracy responsible for making that policy in the years since those momentous events? Have there been significant changes? If not, why not? Have George Bush and Bill Clinton provided leadership designed to produce meaningful change?

These are the crucial questions addressed in this timely volume of essays, a collaborative effort which began at a 1994 conference held in Columbus, Ohio, and sponsored by the Mershon Center at Ohio State University and the Midwest Consortium for International Security Studies. The authors of the individual chapters examine a wide variety of bureaucratic institutions and some major substantive policy areas. In a concluding chapter, the editors synthesize these findings to provide more general answers: There are signs of genuine change, they argue, but there is much more evidence to suggest that the United States is clinging to its old foreign policies and structures. They cite a lack of presidential leadership as one of the key elements in explaining why U.S. foreign policy has not adapted to a dramatically altered world.

"This volume provides an insightful and comprehensive analysis of why U.S. foreign policy processes, structures, and policies have not yet adaptedto the new post-Cold War international environment. Must reading for those who wonder why this nation is so confused and unsure of itself as it seeks to define its proper role in the world". Lawrence J. Korb, The Brookings Institution
