Was sind die außenpolitischen Interessen Österreichs und auf welche Weise werden sie verfolgt? Gibt es ein "Alleinstellungsmerkmal" der österreichischen Außenpolitik, und wenn ja, wie wird es definiert? Das vorliegende Buch beschreibt prägnant und mitreißend die wichtigsten Themen der Außenpolitik der Zweiten Republik und gibt einen Einblick in die diplomatische Praxis. Es richtet sich an Leserinnen und Leser, die sich für internationale Fragen im Allgemeinen und für die österreichische Außenpolitik im Besonderen interessieren, und bietet einen höchst informativen und gut lesbaren Überblick über die Entwicklungen der vergangenen Jahrzehnte - von der Wiedererrichtung des Auswärtigen Dienstes über Österreichs Rolle im "Kalten Krieg" bis hin zu den Veränderungen seit dem EU-Beitritt. Die Beziehungen zu den direkten geographischen Nachbarstaaten werden dabei ebenso beleuchtet wie das ambivalente Verhältnis zu den USA und die Auswirkungen des Zerfalls der UdSSR. Die Autoren schöpfen aus der Erfahrung langjähriger Praxis im diplomatischen Dienst und möchten mit ihrer Analyse zu einem besseren Verständnis der Stellung des Landes im internationalen Kontext beitragen. Sie richten den Blick dabei nicht nur zurück in die Geschichte, sondern auf die Gegenwart und die Zukunft der österreichischen Außenpolitik und berücksichtigen vor allem die fundamentalen Veränderungen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts, die Österreich vor völlig neue Herausforderungen stellen.

Henry Kissinger über die größte Herausforderung des 21. Jahrhunderts Hat das westlich geprägte Wertesystem im 21. Jahrhundert angesichts aufstrebender Mächte mit gänzlich anderem Menschenbild und Gesellschaftskonzept als Basis einer Frieden stiftenden Weltordnung ausgedient? Henry Kissinger, über Jahrzehnte zentrale Figur der US-Außenpolitik und Autorität für Fragen der internationalen Beziehungen, sieht unsere Epoche vor existenziellen Herausforderungen angesichts zunehmender Spannungen. In der heutigen global eng vernetzten Welt wäre eine Ordnung vonnöten, die von Menschen unterschiedlicher Kultur, Geschichte und Tradition akzeptiert wird und auf einem Regelwerk beruht, das in der Lage ist, regionale wie globale Kriege einzudämmen. Der Autor analysiert die Entstehung der unterschiedlichen Ordnungssysteme etwa in China, den islamischen Ländern oder im Westen und unternimmt den Versuch, das Trennende zwischen ihnen zusammenzuführen und den Grundstein für eine zukünftige friedliche Weltordnung zu legen.

"This book hypothesises that an ILI perspective offers a better explanation of the law-State behaviour relationship during international crises than rival explanations grounded in positivism, realism or functional ism. Four case studies of State behaviour - of the US, the Soviet Union and the PRC during the Korean War (1950-1953), of the US and UK during the Suez crisis (1956), of the US and the Soviet Union during the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962) and of the US and an alliance of Latin American States during the Dominican Republic crisis (1965) - are used to test the hypothesis. The findings confirm the greater explanatory efficacy of ILI and demonstrate that the significance of international law to foreign policy decision-making during international crises is more than that of deterring the use of force as is assumed by rival theoretical approaches grounded in a rule-book image of international law."--Back cover.

“This groundbreaking book is about the corruption and hypocrisy in the U.S. domestic and foreign diplomacy and not on genocide. However, the 20th Century’s first Genocide is used in the book as an example to demonstrate how the powers to be in Washington, D.C., blink at cruel injustices through the application of double standards and ethical lapses for the sake of political expediency.” “The author reveals how dishonest lobbying is dragging the United States government into the black hole of corrupt culture which eventually will destroy the nation the same way as the Roman Empire perished through rampant corruption exercised by the ruling class.”

This text is a timely and wide-ranging study providing essential background to the development of global modernity through the European encounter with China. Considering differing notions of peace, empire, trade, religion, and diplomacy as touchstones in the relations between China and Europe on mutuality, the book examines five encounters with France, Portugal, Holland, the pope, and Russia between 1248 and 1720, and reflects on concepts that the West took for granted but which did not successfully cross over into the Chinese world. This cutting edge text provides key insights into the cultural and political conflict which lay at the heart of early Chinese-European relations, as the West's understanding of the truth and appropriateness of its cultural norms was confronted by China's norms and beliefs.

China’s Foreign Aid and Investment Diplomacy, Volume I

Today, by many accounts, China is the world's foremost purveyor of foreign aid and foreign investment to developing countries. This is the product of China's miracle economic growth over a period of more than three decades, together with China's drive to become a major player in world affairs and accomplish this through economic rather than military means. This three-volume work is the first comprehensive study of China's aid and investment strategy to trace how it has evolved since Beijing launched its foreign aid diplomacy at the time of the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. Volume I examines the definitions, origins, nature, and scope of foreign aid and investment by other countries. Using that background, John F. Copper then traces China's financial assistance to developing countries from the Mao period - when China gave meaningful foreign aid despite its own economic struggles - through the beginning of China's post-1978 economic boom and during subsequent decades of rapid economic growth. Copper shows that China has a more salient history in giving foreign assistance than any other country in the world; while China's objectives in giving foreign assistance have changed markedly over time, China has always been driven by efforts to realize its foreign policy objectives and expand China's external influence.
