"The Chimera of Russia's Gas Power"

Op-Ed, Yemen Times

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"If Russia is going to throw its weight around, it is better to have allies among those affected. The key to energy security is diversity — of pipelines as well as sources of supply."

"The Rise of China's Soft Power"

Op-Ed, Wall Street Journal Asia

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"In terms of political values, the era of Maoism (and Mao jackets) is long past. Although China remains authoritarian, the success of its political economy in tripling gross domestic product over the past three decades has made it attractive to many developing countries. In parts of Asia, Africa and Latin America, the so-called "Beijing consensus" on authoritarian government plus a market economy has become more popular than the previously dominant "Washington consensus" of market economics with democratic government. China has reinforced this attraction by economic aid and access to its growing market."

"Sullying Our Reputation"

Op-Ed, Chicago Tribune

By Joseph S. Nye, Harvard University Distinguished Service Professor

"...there is no way to take back the pictures of a soldier holding a Muslim on a leash or a hooded prisoner standing on a box with wires dangling from his body, but the fact that we have a free press, independent courts and a Congress willing to confront the executive and reaffirm the values expressed in the ban against torture provides us a similar measure of soft power."
