Published by Hoover Institution
On the Cover: Neptune, god of the seas, watches over the Grand Harbor of Valletta in a Maltese travel poster from the Hoover Archives. He wields a trident, his emblem in both war and peace. The small island of Malta, crossroads of the Mediterranean, has witnessed centuries of both conflict and calm, ranging from prehistory to the violent twentieth century. But the creator of this image, perhaps Malta’s most celebrated artist, refused to let war and social upheaval trespass on his sun-splashed tableaux. Read this poster’s story on page 204.

The Hoover Digest offers informative writing on politics, economics, and history by the scholars and researchers of the Hoover Institution, the public policy research center at Stanford University.

The opinions expressed in the Hoover Digest are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, or their supporters.

The Hoover Digest (ISSN 1088-5161) is published quarterly by the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University, Stanford CA 94305-6010.

The
 Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace
was established at Stanford Universityin 1919 by Herbert Hoover, a member of Stanford’s pioneer graduating class of 1895 and thethirty-first president of the United States. Since 1919 the Institution has evolved from a libraryand repository of documents to an active public policy research center. Simultaneously, theInstitution has evolved into an internationally recognized library and archives housing tens of millions of books and archival documents relating to political, economic, and social change.
The Institution’s overarching goals are to
• Understand the causes and consequences of economic, political, and social change• Analyze the effects of government actions relating to public policies• Generate and disseminate ideas directed at positive public policy formationusing reasoned arguments and intellectual rigor, converting conceptual insightsinto practical policy initiatives judged to be beneficial to society
Ideas have consequences, and a free flow of competing ideas leads to an evolution of  policy adoptions and associated consequences affecting the well-being of society. The Hoover Institution endeavors to be a prominent contributor of ideas having positive consequences.In the words of President Hoover,
 
This Institution supports the Constitution of the United States, its Bill of Rights,and its method of representative government. Both our social and economic systems are based on private enterprise from which springs initiative and ingenuity. . . . The Federal Government should undertake no governmental, social, or eco-nomic action, except where local government or the people cannot undertake it for themselves. . . . The overall mission of this Institution is . . . to recall the voice of experience against the making of war, . . . to recall man’s endeavors to make and  preserve peace, and to sustain for America the safeguards of the American way of life. . . . The Institution itself must constantly and dynamically point the road to peace, to personal freedom, and to the safeguards of the American system.
To achieve these goals, the Institution conducts research using its library and archivalassets under the auspices of three programs: Democracy and Free Markets, American Institu-tions and Economic Performance, and International Rivalries and Global Cooperation. These programs address, respectively, political economy abroad, political economy domestically, and political and economic relationships internationally.
