Restoring Quality Health Care

Dr. Scott Atlas presents key reforms to meet the significant health care challenges facing the nation after examining the status of US health care, particularly in light of the Affordable Care Act. Atlas proposes a six-point, strategic, incentive-based reform plan for health care to instill market-based competition, empower consumers, and reduce the federal government’s authority over health care. Those reforms focus on restoring the appropriate incentives to increase the quality of health care and reduce its costs.

Rugged Individualism

The authors look at the political context in which American rugged individualism flourishes or declines and offer a balanced assessment of its future prospects. They outline its path from its founding—marked by the Declaration of Independence&mdash:to today and look with some optimism toward new frontiers of the twenty-first century that may nourish rugged individualism. In considering reasons to be pessimistic as well as reasons to be optimistic about it, they also suggest where supporters of rugged individualism might focus greater encouragement and resources.

The War That Must Never Be Fought

The War That Must Never Be Fought is a collection of essays exploring how nuclear deterrence should be understood seventy years after the first nuclear explosions. The contributors examine nuclear deterrence from the vantage points of nations in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, all of which have some form of security relationship with the United States. The contributors challenge deterrence theories developed during the Cold War to show that a successful effort to reduce and eliminate the nuclear threat must be based on a combination of regional and global joint enterprises.

Total Volunteer Force

Tim Kane identifies and examines the underlying causes of personnel dysfunction in the US armed forces and suggests specific, decentralizing reforms to Pentagon policies. His proposals aim to move personnel strategies further along the spectrum of volunteerism, emphasize greater individual agency during all stages of a US military career, and restore command authority to colonels and captains that has been missing since the centralization of the 1960s.

Zhivago’s Secret Journey

Paolo Mancosu continues an investigation he began in his 2013 book Inside the Zhivago Storm, which the New York Review of Books described as "a tour de force of literary detection worthy of a scholarly Sherlock Holmes." In this book, Mancosu extends his detective work by reconstructing the network of contacts that helped Pasternak smuggle the typescripts of Doctor Zhivago outside the Soviet Union and following the vicissitudes of the typescripts when they arrived in the West. Drawing from a rich trove of archival documents, Mancosu details events that were treated as top secret by all those involved, vividly recounting the history of the publication of Pasternak’s epic work with all its human and political ramifications.

American Exceptionalism in a New Era

Edited by Hoover Institution director Thomas W. Gilligan, thirteen Hoover fellows discuss the unique factors that have historically set America apart from other nations and how these factors shape public policy. They show how America and its people have prospered and emerged as global leaders by prizing individuality and economic freedom and explore key factors in America’s success, including immigration, education, divided government, light regulation, low taxes, and social mobility. Finally they outline the ways American exceptionalism may be in decline, with consequences both at home and abroad.

Beyond Disruption

Beyond Disruption: Technology's Challenge to Governance delivers a fine-tuned perspective on how the unprecedented pace of emerging innovations is impacting 21st century society. In a riveting look at technology’s influence on political systems and the well-being of the human race, commentaries assembled by George P. Shultz, Jim Hoagland, and James Timbie systematically evaluate how the Fourth Industrial Revolution is set to transform international relations and manipulate economic growth and virtual communications.

Originating from a fall 2017 Hoover Institution conference, the authors evocatively take on the plight of modern technology—from the vulnerabilities of the global operating system to the benefits of sophisticated medical diagnostic tools.

Invisible Slaves

W. Kurt Hauser discusses slavery around the world, with research and firsthand stories that reframe slavery as a modern-day crisis, not a historical phenomenon or third-world issue. Identifying four types of slavery—chattel slavery, debt bondage, forced labor, and sex slavery—he examines the efforts and failures of governments to address them. He explores the political, economic, geographic, and cultural factors that shape slavery today, illustrating the tragic human toll with individual stories.

Keeping the Lights on at America's Nuclear Power Plants

Jeremy Carl and David Fedor discuss American nuclear power plant closures in light of major economic and policy challenges. They show how cheap natural gas, electricity market flaws, and a failure to capture the public imagination threaten America’s near- and long-term nuclear viability. They also make the case for continued nuclear investment, arguing that to permanently opt out of the nuclear enterprise would compromise American technology leadership, security, and commitment to curbing pollution and carbon emissions.

Revolution and Aftermath

Eric Edelman and Ray Takeyh bring historical context to one of the most underappreciated forces that has shaped modern US foreign policy: American-Iranian relations. They argue that America’s flawed reading of Iran’s domestic politics has hamstrung decades of US diplomacy, and outline lessons future leaders can learn from America’s many missteps since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Roots of the Issei

Andrew Way Leong examines the emergence of the generational terms issei, nisei, and sansei, which have long been used to organize early twentieth-century Japanese American narratives. Using digitized Japanese American newspapers, Roots of the Issei suggests these widely-used generational concepts are in fact a recent construct and provides a complex and nuanced picture of the Japanese American community.

Spin Wars and Spy Games

Spin Wars & Spy Games analyzes the modern day trajectory of global news networks (GNNs) and their role in policy development and diplomatic functions. Through interviews with dozens of foreign correspondents, editors, policy experts, and academics, Kounalakis looks at how Western transnational journalists have been instrumental to the policymaking community, yet how their practices are endangered by the influx of non-western, state-sponsored GNNs.
