A Window into Modern Iran

As foreign minister under the last shah and ambassador to the United States, Ardeshir Zahedi was Iran’s preeminent statesman in the two decades before the Iranian Revolution toppled the nation’s leadership in 1979. This publication draws from the thousands of records, letters, documents, and photographs meticulously preserved by Zahedi and his father, General Fazlollah Zahedi, to provide a rare and unmediated view of a century of social and political history in Iran.

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.

The Battalion Artist

In this stunning book filled with authentic World War II images—many in full color—we see and feel the intensity of wartime life through the eyes of a talented young artist who was also a US Navy Seabee. Natale Bellantoni, a young art student from Boston, sailed across the Pacific in 1943–45 and returned home with a sea chest of art and photographs documenting his experiences in New Caledonia, New Guinea, the Admiralty Islands, and Okinawa. His subject matter was his daily life: endless weeks at sea, harbors and ships, men at work, airstrips, the local countryside, and the view of enemy planes overhead at night from his fox hole. Now collected in a lavishly illustrated volume, his watercolors, sketches, and photographs offer a window onto one of the most significant moments in American history. The Battalion Artist explores the World War II experiences of Nat Bellantoni, but it reflects the story of an entire generation.

America and the Future of War

This study examines what history suggests about the future possibilities and characteristics of war and the place that thinking about conflict deserves in forming American strategy in the coming decades. The author offers a historical perspective to show that armed conflict among organized political groups has been mankind’s constant companion and that America must remain prepared to use its military power to deal with an unstable, uncertain, and fractious world.

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.

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?

Gambling with Other People's Money

Russ Roberts argues that leverage—using “other people’s money”—was the central cause of the financial crisis of 2008. He shows that both government and Wall Street are to blame—government for coddling the large banks and those banks for pushing for the policies that rescued them from their mistakes—and that a new approach to financial crisis management is necessary to avoid further damage when the next financial crisis occurs.

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.
