Limits of American Power
Joseph S. Nye, Jr. discusses the paradox of the United States having unparalleled military power, yet being unable to impose its will unilaterally on either its allies or its antagonists. He explains clearly why America must adopt a more cooperative engagement with the rest of the world.

pp. 545-559

The Israeli Decision to Withdraw from Southern Lebanon: Political Leadership and Security Policy
Dalia Dassa Kaye argues that neither military-strategic considerations nor domestic pressure can adequately explain the Israeli decision to withdraw unilaterally from southern Lebanon. The key trigger for withdrawal was the reframing of the issue by the Israeli political leadership, particularly by Ehud Barak.

pp. 561-585

Organized Interests and American Political Development
Daniel J. Tichenor and Richard A. Harris present new findings about interest group lobbying in national politics from the 1830s to the 1920s, raising important questions about the theoretical presumptions and empirical arguments surrounding contemporary interest group scholarship. They conclude that modern, sophisticated, and national interest group politics emerged far earlier than political scientists have assumed.

pp. 587-612

Subregional Economic Zones and Integration in East Asia
Dajin Peng examines subregional economic zones (SREZs) as an emergent means of economic integration in East Asia. He argues that SREZs are quietly forming a new geoeconomic configuration in the region, although their pattern of development is different from the expectations of the proponents.

pp. 613-641

Urban Education Reform and Minority Political Empowerment
Stefanie Chambers analyzes school politics in Chicago and the impact that two very different school reforms have had on those served by the school system: Chicago’s minority student body and the community at large. Her findings are significant in terms of the future of minority inclusion in educational policy making, especially as other big cities wish to replicate Chicago-style school reform.
