Effective National Security Advising: Recovering the Eisenhower Legacy
Fred I. Greenstein and Richard H. Immerman provide an account of the impressively rigorous process of national security policy planning in the Eisenhower presidency. They commend it as a model for the next administration.

pp. 335-345

Effective National Security Advising: A Most Dubious Precedent
Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. argues that the Eisenhower heavily-layered national security apparatus did not produce a coherent foreign policy and did not save the administration from gross errors. He believes that future presidents would benefit from a more flexible approach--such as those of FDR and JFK--to the conduct of foreign affairs.

pp. 347-351
 

Local Government and Global Politics: The Implications of Massachusetts' "Burma Law"
Terrence Guay examines Massachusetts' sanctions legislation and underscores the growing involvement of local government in global politics. He explains how Massachusetts' "Burma Law" was entangled with the interactions between domestic and international politics, ethics and foreign policy, the U.S. role in the post-cold war world, the impact of NGOs in world affairs, the changing nature of federalism, and the relative influence of business and government.

pp. 353-376
 

The Church and the Revitalization of Politics and Community
Anna Greenberg examines the role religious institutions play in their local communities as agents of political mobilization and as intermediaries between the individual and the state. She argues that religious institutions serve as an important source of political information, resources, and incentives to engage the political process.

pp. 377-394
 

Cold War to Cold Peace: Explaining U.S.-French Competition in Francophone Africa
Peter J. Schraeder examines the rise and evolution of U.S.-French competition in francophone Africa. He concludes that this case is indicative of the emergence of a cold peace in which the great powers struggle for economic supremacy in the highly competitive economic environment of the post-cold war.

pp. 395-419
 

From Republican Virtue to Technology of Political Power: Three Episodes of Czech Nonpolitical Politics
Aviezer Tucker, Karel Jakeš, Marian Kišš, Ivana Kupcová, Ivo Losman, DAVID ONDRACKA, Jan Outlý, and VERA STÝLSKALÍKOVÁ examine three episodes of Czech experimentation with "nonpolitical politics." They determine that nonpolitical politics is a useful doctrine for dissident movements that do not intend to govern, but not a feasible approach to governing in a modern representative democracy.
