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.

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.

Moscow Has Ears Everywhere

Boris Pasternak’s conflict with the Soviet regime over the publication of Doctor Zhivago did not end when he won the Nobel Prize, or even when he died. Paolo Mancosu tells how Soviet pressure led Pasternak to seek out smuggled royalties for the book and how his “will” on behalf of his companion, Olga Ivinskaya, was intercepted by the KGB. After his death, she received some of the smuggled money, leading to her and her daughter being sentenced to eight and three years, respectively, in a labor camp. The “Ivinskaya case” became a cause célèbre in the West and Mancosu reveals how Western literary figures tried to win her freedom.

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 author argues for the importance of monetary stability and monetary rules, offering theoretical, empirical, and historical perspectives to support his case. He shows how an important lesson from the monetary history of the United States and other advanced countries is that the pursuit of stable monetary policy guided by central banks following rule-like behavior produces low and stable inflation, stable real performance, and encourages financial stability.
