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.

American Individualism

In this remarkable little volume, Herbert Hoover expounded and vigorously defended what has come to be called American exceptionalism: the set of beliefs and values that made—and still makes--America unique. He argued that America can make steady, sure progress if we preserve our individualism, preserve and stimulate the initiative of our people, insist on and maintain the safeguards to equality of opportunity, and honor service as a part of our national character.

Anti-Americanism in Europe

A revealing look at how, as the process of post–cold war European unification has progressed, anti-Americanism has proven to be a useful ideology for the definition of a new European identity. The author details the elements—some cultural, some irrational—in this disturbing movement and tells why it is likely to remain a feature of relations between the United States and Europe for the foreseeable future.

Bankruptcy Not Bailout

This book introduces and analyzes a new and more predictable bankruptcy process designed specifically for large financial institutions—Chapter 14—to achieve greater financial stability and reduce the likelihood of bailouts. The contributors identify and compare the major differences in the Dodd-Frank Title II and the proposed new procedures and outline the reasons why Chapter 14 would be more effective in preventing both financial crises and bailouts.

Boris Pasternak

This selection of Boris Pasternak's correspondence with his parents and sisters from 1921 to 1960—including more than illustrations and photos—is an authoritative, indispensable introduction and guide to the great writer's life and work. His letters are accomplished literary works in their own right, on a par with his poetry in their intensity, frankness, and dazzling stylistic play. In addition, they offer a rare glimpse into his innermost self, significantly complementing the insights gained from his work. They are especially poignant in that after 1923 Pasternak was never to see his parents again.

Breaking with Communism

This volume, chiefly Wolfe's letters from 1939 with unpublished speeches and writings from the Hoover Archives, illuminates his struggle to uncover the truth about the history of Soviet Russia and his anguish over his earlier allegiances not only to Lenin but to Karl Marx as well. When intellectuals in Eastern Europe and China are going through the same soul-searching process, this book is especially timely.

Central Bank Governance and Oversight Reform

Drawn from a 2015 Hoover Institution conference, this book features distinguished scholars and policy makers’ discussing key questions about the Federal Reserve. Going beyond the widely talked about decision of whether to raise interest rates, they focus on a deeper set of questions, including, among others,

How should the Fed make decisions? How should the Fed govern its internal decision-making processes? What is the trade-off between greater Fed power and less Fed independence? And how should Congress, from which the Fed ultimately receives its authority, oversee the Fed?

Charter Schools Against the Odds

The expert contributors to this volume tell how state laws and policies have stacked the deck against charter schools by limiting the number of charter schools allowed in a state, forbidding for-profit firms from holding charters, forcing them to pay rent out of operating funds, and other ways. They explain how these policies can be amended to level the playing field and give charter schools—and the children they serve—a fairer chance to succeed.

Choice and Federalism

Washington is at crossroads on K–12 education policy. It can continue down the path of top-down accountability; devolve power to states and districts, thereby returning to the status quo of the last century; or rethink the fundamentals and do something different. In Choice and Federalism: Rethinking the Federal Role in Education, the Koret Task Force on K–12 Education proposes a new path in which Washington releases states from top-down accountability in exchange for unleashing the ability of parents to engage in informed choices of schools for their children and by causing those choices to generate competitive pressures on the providers of education services.
