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.

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.

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.
