    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In 1967, South West Africa -- which was controlled by the Republic of South Africa -- was the only remaining mandated territory from the old League of Nations that had not either gained its independence or come under trusteeship of the United Nations.

  • To Keep the Peaceby William W. Orbach

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The first purpose of the United Nations is "to maintain international peace and security." Among the chief methods employed to attain this end has been the condemnatory resolution, in which international outrage is expressed at the policies or actions of a given state. Here William W. Orbach undertakes to explore the nature of the United Nations and... more...

  • Crossroads Of Decisionby Howard Jablon

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    In this provocative interpretation of New Deal diplomacy, Howard Jablon challenges the view that the State Department was wiser and more expert at international maneuver than was President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the early years of his presidency. These were years of growing world tension, with the preliminary shots of World War II being fired as... more...

  • Appeasement in International Politicsby Stephen R. Rock

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 42.00

    Since the 1930s, appeasement has been labeled as a futile and possibly dangerous policy. In this landmark study, Stephen Rock seeks to restore appeasement to its proper place as a legitimate--and potentially successful--diplomatic strategy. Appeasement was discredited by Neville Chamberlain's disastrous attempt to satisfy Adolf Hitler's territorial... more...

  • Foreign Seizuresby Eugene F. Mooney

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The United States Supreme Court framed a unique legal doctrine on foreign seizure of American-owned property in the case of Banco Nacional de Cuba v. Sabbatino in 1963. This ruling has far-reaching implications for international law, American foreign policy, and the role of the Court in both domestic and international arenas of power. Disagreeing... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 45.00

    The global threat of nuclear weapons is one of today's key policy issues. Using a wide variety of sources, including recently declassified information, Nathan E. Busch offers detailed examinations of the nuclear programs in the United States, Russia, China, Iraq, India, and Pakistan, as well as the emerging programs in Iran and North Korea.

  • Peace And Disarmamentby Richard Fanning

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    Arms control remains a major international issue as the twentieth century closes, but it is hardly a new concern. The effort to limit military power has enjoyed recurring support since shortly after World War I, when the United States, Britain, and Japan sought naval arms control as a means to insure stability in the Far East, contain naval expenditure,... more...

  • From Berlin to Baghdadby Hal Brands

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 50.00

    Containing Communism was the primary goal of American foreign policy for four decades, allowing generations of political leaders to build consensus atop a universally accepted foundation. From Berlin to Baghdad dissects numerous attempts, after communism's collapse, to devise a new grand strategy that could match containment's moral clarity and... more...

  • The United States and NATOby Lawrence S. Kaplan

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization was one of the most important accomplishments of American diplomacy in countering the Soviet threat during the early days of the Cold War. Why and how such a reversal of a 150-year nonalignment policy by the United States was brought about, and how the goals of the treaty became a reality, are... more...
