2. Intergovernmental Relations in Transition: Reflections and Directions
Author: by Carl W. Stenberg
Published at: Routledge; 1st edition (March 2, 2018)
The field of intergovernmental relations has changed substantially over the past five decades. It maintains a critical and evolving role in the US federal system as well as in public policy and administration. Building upon the legacy of Deil S.
Wright’s scholarship, this collection of essays by distinguished scholars, emerging thought leaders, and experienced practitioners chronicles and analyzes some of the tensions and pressures that have contributed to the current state of intergovernmental relations and management. Although rarely commanding media attention by name, intergovernmental relations is being elevated in the public discourse through policy issues dominating the headlines.
Many of these intergovernmental issues are addressed in this book, including health insurance exchanges under the now-threatened Affordable Care Act, and the roles of the federal, state, and local governments in food safety, energy, and climate change. Contributors interpret and assess the impacts of these and other issues on the future directions of intergovernmental relations and management.

7. Enduring Alliance: A History of NATO and the Postwar Global Order
Author: by Timothy Andrews Sayle
Published at: Cornell University Press; Illustrated edition (April 15, 2019)
Born from necessity, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has always seemed on the verge of collapse. Even now, some seventy years after its inception, some consider its foundation uncertain and its structure weak. At this moment of incipient strategic crisis, Timothy A.
Sayle offers a sweeping history of the most critical alliance in the post-World War II era. In Enduring Alliance, Sayle recounts how the western European powers, along with the United States and Canada, developed a treaty to prevent encroachments by the Soviet Union and to serve as a first defense in any future military conflict.
As the growing and unruly hodgepodge of countries, councils, commands, and committees inflated NATO during the Cold War, Sayle shows that the work of executive leaders, high-level diplomats, and institutional functionaries within NATO kept the alliance alive and strong in the face of changing administrations, various crises, and the flux of geopolitical maneuverings.
8. The United Nations: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Author: by Jussi M. Hanhimäki
Published at: Oxford University Press; 2nd edition (June 2, 2015)
After seven decades of existence has the UN become obsolete? Is it ripe for retirement? As Jussi Hanhimki proves in the second edition of this Very Short Introduction, the answer is no. In the second decade of the twenty-first century the UN remains an indispensable organization that continues to save lives and improve the world as its founders hoped.
Since its original publication in 2008, this 2nd edition includes more recent examples of the UN Security Council in action and peacekeeping efforts while exploring its most recent successes and failures. After a brief history of the United Nations and its predecessor, the League of Nations, Hanhimki examines the UN’s successes and failures as a guardian of international peace and security, as a promoter of human rights, as a protector of international law, and as an engineer of socio-economic development.
This updated edition highlights what continues to make the UN a complicated organization today, and the ongoing challenges between its ambitions and capabilities. Hanhimki also provides a clear account of the UN and its various arms and organizations (such as UNESCO and UNICEF), and offers a critical overview of the UN Security Council’s involvement in recent crises in Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Ukraine, Libya, and Syria, and how likely it is to meet its overall goals in the future.

The Charter is the foundation of international peace and security.
12. Learning on the Left: Political Profiles of Brandeis University
Author: by Stephen J. Whitfield
Published at: Brandeis University Press (September 15, 2020)
Brandeis University is the United States’ only Jewish-sponsored nonsectarian university, and while only being established after World War II, it has risen to become one of the most respected universities in the nation. The faculty and alumni of the university have made exceptional contributions to myriad disciplines, but they have played a surprising formidable role in American politics.Stephen J.
Whitfield makes the case for the pertinence of Brandeis University in understanding the vicissitudes of American liberalism since the mid-twentieth century. Founded to serve as a refuge for qualified professors and students haunted by academic antisemitism, Brandeis University attracted those who generally envisioned the republic as worthy of betterment.
Whether as liberals or as radicals, figures associated with the university typically adopted a critical stance toward American society and sometimes acted upon their reformist or militant beliefs. This volume is not an institutional history, but instead shows how one university, over the course of seven decades, employed and taught remarkable men and women who belong in our accounts of the evolution of American politics, especially on the left.
13. History of the Deep State Volume 3: The Rise of the "Democratic" Socialist Fourth Reich
Author: by Jeremy Stone
Published at: Independently published (March 24, 2020)
“History of the Deep State Volume 3” is the long-awaited third book written & published in the History of the Deep State trilogy and series by Jeremy Stone.

What are their true intentions? Why are these strange & radical agendas emerging globally now? Who put them into power? Are they truly connected to the Socialist puppet-masters behind World War II, with a new agenda? Are their “Agenda 2030” & income equality economic agendas just a scare tactic or a threat?
Why are they simultaneously planning a secret coup against the President while offering an Anti-American form of Government now? The length of time the New World Order has waited for this period in time and series of crises is no coincidence and will astound you.
14. Schism: China, America, and the Fracturing of the Global Trading System
Author: by Paul Blustein
Published at: CIGI Press (September 10, 2019)
China’s entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001 was heralded as historic, and for good reason: the world’s most populous nation was joining the rule-based system that has governed international commerce since World War II. But the full ramifications of that event are only now becoming apparent, as the Chinese economic juggernaut has evolved in unanticipated and profoundly troublesome ways.
In this book, journalist Paul Blustein chronicles the contentious process resulting in China’s WTO membership and the transformative changes that followed, both good and bad – for China, for its trading partners, and for the global trading system as a whole.
The book recounts how China opened its markets and underwent far-reaching reforms that fuelled its economic takeoff, but then adopted policies – a cheap currency and heavy-handed state intervention – that unfairly disadvantaged foreign competitors and circumvented WTO rules. Events took a potentially catastrophic turn in 2018 with the eruption of a trade war between China and the United States, which has brought the trading system to a breaking point.
15. The European Union: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
Author: by John Pinder
Published at: Oxford University Press; 4th edition (March 30, 2018)
The European Union (EU) stands out as a fascinatingly unique political organization. On the one hand, it has shown the potential for developing deep and wide-ranging cooperation between member states, going far beyond that found anywhere else in the world.
On the other, it is currently in the throes of a phase of profound uncertainty about its viability and future. Showing how and why the EU has developed from 1950 to the present day, this Very Short Introduction covers a range of topics, including the Union’s early history, the workings of its institutions and what they do, the interplay between “eurosceptics” and federalists, and the role of the Union beyond Europe in international affairs and as a peace-keeper.
In this fully updated fourth edition, Pinder and Usherwood cover the migrant crisis and the UK’s decision to leave the Union, set in the context of a body that is now involved in most areas of public policy. Discussing how the EU continues to draw in new members, they conclude by considering the future of the Union and the choices and challenges that may lie ahead.
16. Witsec: Inside the Federal Witness Protection Program
Author: by Pete Earley
Published at: Bantam; First Edition Thus (April 1, 2003)
For decades no law enforcement program has been as cloaked in controversy and mystery as the Federal Witness Protection Program. Now, for the first time, Gerald Shur, the man credited with the creation of WITSEC, teams with acclaimed investigative journalist Pete Earley to tell the inside story of turncoats, crime-fighters, killers, and ordinary human beings caught up in a life-and-death game of deception in the name of justice.
WITSECInside the Federal Witness Protection ProgramWhen the government was losing the war on organized crime in the early 1960s, Gerald Shur, a young attorney in the Justice Department’s Organized Crime and Racketeering Section, urged the department to entice mobsters into breaking their code of silence with promises of protection and relocation.
But as high-ranking mob figures came into the program, Shur discovered that keeping his witnesses alive in the face of death threats involved more than eradicating old identities and creating new ones. It also meant cutting off families from their pasts and giving new identities to wives and children, as well as to mob girlfriends and mistresses.
