Learning from Experience

George P. Shultz recounts a lifetime of experiences in government, business, and academia and describes how those experiences have shaped his worldview. In a plainspoken manner, he provides the reader with keys to understanding how he helped bring the nuclear disarmament movement into the mainstream of American policy discussions, why he urges his Republican Party colleagues to adopt measures to address climate change as an insurance policy for the future, why leaders must learn to govern over diversity, and more.

Perjury

When the Hiss-Chambers case first burst on the scene in 1948, its main characters and events seemed more appropriate to spy fiction than to American reality. The major historical authority on the case, Perjury was first published in 1978. Now, in its latest edition, Perjury links together the old and new evidence, much of it previously undiscovered or unavailable, bringing the Hiss-Chambers’s amazing story up to the present.

Race and Economics

Walter E. Williams applies an economic analysis to the problems black Americans have faced in the past and still face in the present to show that that free-market resource allocation, as opposed to political allocation, is in the best interests of minorities. He debunks many common labor market myths and reveals how excessive government regulation and the minimum-wage law have imposed incalculable harm on the most disadvantaged members of our society.

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.
