What can be America's peace?
Author Angelo Codevilla asks, What is to be America's peace? How is it to be won and preserved in our time? He notes that our government's increasingly unlimited powers flow in part from our statesmen's inability to stay out of wars or to win them and that our statesmen and academics have eased to think about such things. The purpose of this book is to rekindle such thoughts. The author re-establishes early American statecraft's understanding of peace--what it takes to make it and what it takes to keep it. He reminds Americans why our founding generation placed the pursuit of peace ahead of all other objectives; he shows how they tried to keep the peace by drawing sharp lines between America's business and that of others, as well as between peace and war. He shows how our 20th-century statesmen confused peace and war as well as America's affairs with that of mankind's. The result, he shows, has been endless war abroad and spiralling strife among Americans. Codevilla provides intellectual guidelines for recovering the pursuit of peace as the guiding principle by which the American people and statesmen may navigate domestic as well as international affairs.

The Munich Security Conference, founded as "Wehrkundetagung" in 1963, has evolved into the leading independent forum for security policy. Traditionally seen as a kind of transatlantic family meeting for debating NATO strategy during the Cold War, the conference has increasingly broadened its agenda and today attracts participants from across the globe. Each year, dozens of heads of state and government, ministers, and experts from different fields of security policy gather in Munich for an open exchange of ideas and policies on the most pressing international security issues - ranging from regional conflicts, international peace operations and nuclear disarmament to cyber security and environmental challenges. On the occasion of the conference's 50th anniversary in 2014, a number of prominent participants, including former and current foreign and defense ministers, reflect on the conference's history and significance, some of the major issues debated, and on key security challenges facing the international community.

The US global security guarantee and UN collective security
Always engage : the United States and the Security Council
Sometimes engage : internal UN management and the General Secretariat, the buyout of the UN-that-works, and containment of the UN-that-doesn't
Parallel engagement : international development and global human welfare
Disengage and obstruct : the UN-of-values.
International legal scholar Kenneth Anderson analyzes US-UN relations in each major aspect of the United Nations' work-security, human rights and universal values, and development-and offers workable, practical principles for US policy toward the United Nations. He addresses the crucial question of whether, when, and how the United States should engage or not engage with the United Nations in each of its many different organs and activities, giving workable, pragmatic meaning to "multilateral engagement" across the full range of the United Nations' work.

Nature of the problem
Atrophy of diplomatic power
Kori Schake shows how the deficiencies in focus, education, and programmatic proficiency impede the work of the State Department and suggests how investing in those areas could make the agency significantly more successful at building stable and prosperous democratic governments around the world. She explains why, instead of burdening the US military with yet another inherently civilian function, work should focus on bringing those agencies of the government whose job it is to provide development assistance up to the standard of success that our military has achieved. Schake presents a vision of what a successful State Department should look like and seeks to build support for creating it--a State Department that makes possible the projection of US civilian power as well as US military force.

This critical review of the history of America's relations with Iran shows how little of the two countries' long and complicated relationship is reflected in the foundational axioms of the "Great Satan" myth. The author explains why meaningful and equitable relations can begin only after the two nations have arrived at a common, critical, and accurate reading of the past.
