Privacy, Mass Surveillance, and the Struggle to Reform the NSA
Timothy H. Edgar

May 2017 166pp
9780815730637 Hardback £18.95 / €23.00
America's mass surveillance programmes, once secret, can no longer be ignored. While Edward Snowden began the process in 2013
with his leaks of top secret documents, the Obama administration's own reforms have also helped bring the National Security
Agency and its programme of signals intelligence collection out of the shadows. The real question is: What should we do about
mass surveillance?
This work explains both why and how we can protect our privacy, without sacrificing the vital intelligence capabilities needed to
keep ourselves and our allies safe.


Inside the Gulf Oil Disaster
Daniel Jacobs

Oct 2016 210pp
9780815729082 Hardback £18.95 / €23.00
Presents the first comprehensive account of the legal, economic, and environmental consequences of the April 2010 blowout. A
former Justice Department lawyer responsible for enforcing environmental laws, Daniel Jacobs tells the story that neither BP nor the
US federal government wants heard: how they both fell short, both in terms of preventing and coping with the accident. BP has paid
tens of billions of dollars to settle claims and law suits arising from the accident. The company also has pled guilty to manslaughter
in a separate criminal case. Yet, no one responsible for the accident itself is headed to prison. On the other hand, hundreds of people
have been prosecuted for filing false claims against BP, some 75 of whom have been sentenced to prison.



Five Decades on the Frontlines of Diplomacy
James F. Dobbins

Jun 2017 346pp
9780815730040 Hardback £25.95 / €31.00
Presents a behind the scenes look at 50 years of US diplomacy. From Vietnam in the 1960s to the Afghanistan of this decade, James
Dobbins takes the reader behind the scenes at the Vietnam peace talks, the darkest dates of the Cold War, the reunification of
Germany, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the US military interventions in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Haiti, Kosovo, and Somalia.
Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama turned repeatedly to Dobbins to help find creative solutions for seemingly irresolvable
problems. Now readers can benefit from his insights.



Edited by Bruce Jones
Foreword by Strobe Talbott
Feb 2017 120pp
9780815729532 Hardback £16.95 / €21.00
Seventy years ago, in the wake of World War II, the US did something almost unprecedented in world history: it launched and paid
for an economic aid plan to restore a continent reeling from war. The European Recovery Plan — better known as the Marshall Plan
— was in part an act of charity but primarily an act of self-interest, intended to prevent post-war Western Europe from succumbing
to communism.
This work reviews the global context in which the Truman administration pushed the Marshall Plan through Congress and concludes
with an essay by Bruce Jones and Will Moreland that demonstrates how the Marshall Plan helped shape the entire post-war era and
how today's leaders can learn from the plan's challenges and successes.


Elaine C. Kamarck
Jul 2016 224pp
9780815727781 Hardback £21.50 / €24.00
Asks the important question: When did Americans lose faith in their leaders? And how can they get it back?
Kamarck argues that presidents today spend too much time talking, and not enough time governing. After decades of "imperial" and
"rhetorical" presidencies, we are in need of a "managerial" president.
In her fully readable and accessible book, she explains the difficulties of governing in our modern political landscape, and offers
examples and recommendations of how the new US president can not only recreate faith in leadership, but also run a competent,
successful administration.

Russia's Vulnerable Flanks
Janusz Bugajski & Margarita Assenova

Sep 2016 300pp
9780985504557 Paperback £24.50 / €27.00
Examining the impact of Moscow's neo-imperial project on the security of several regions bordering the Russian Federation, this
work also analyses the geopolitical aspects of Kremlin ambitions, and makes recommendations for the future role of NATO, the EU,
and the US in the wider Europe.
Focusing on five vulnerable flanks bordering the Russian Federation-the Baltic and Nordic zones, East Central Europe, Southeast
Europe, South Caucasus, and Central Asia, it examines several pivotal questions, including the strategic objectives of Moscow's
expansionist ambitions; and the repercussions of heightened regional tensions for US, NATO, and EU policy toward Russia and
toward unstable regions bordering the Russian Federation.

Edited by Henry Hardy
Foreword by Strobe Talbott

Aug 2016 250pp
9780815728870 Paperback £20.50 / €25.00
A Brookings Classic
Although the essays in this book were originally written to explore the tensions between Soviet communism and Russian culture,
the thinking about the Russian mind that emerges is as relevant today as when the book first appeared more than a decade ago.
Among the highlights are accounts of Berlin's meetings with the Russian writers in the aftermath of the war; a celebrated
memorandum he wrote for the British Foreign Office in 1945 about the state of the arts under Stalin; Berlin's survey of Russian
culture based on a visit in 1956; and a postscript reflecting on the fall of the Berlin Wall and other events in 1989.
Includes a revised foreword by Brookings President Strobe Talbott and a new introduction by Berlin's editor, Henry Hardy.



Faultlines in a Troubled Alliance
Kemal Kirişci

Jul 2017 200pp
9780815730002 Hardback £25.95 / €31.00
Geopolitics in the 21st Century
The new US administration will face daunting challenges to the international liberal order, ranging from a fragile European Union
rocked by the United Kingdom’s exit, to a cold war-like rivalry with Russia and instability in the Middle East. A long-standing
member of NATO, Turkey stands as a front-line state in the midst of many of these challenges. Yet, Turkey is failing to play a more
constructive role in supporting this order.
Despite these problems, Kemal Kirişci’s new book argues that domestic and regional realities are now edging Turkey toward
improving its relations with the West. A better understanding of these developments will be critical in devising an updated US
strategy toward Turkey and its neighbourhood.
