States of Dependency Cambridge University Press

Who bears responsibility for the poor, and who may exercise the power that comes with that responsibility? Amidst the Great Depression, American reformers answered this question in new ways, with profound effects on longstanding practices of governance and entrenched understandings of citizenship. States of Dependency traces New Deal welfare programs over the span of four decades and into communities around the nation, from American Indian reservations in the Southwest to agrarian stretches of Middle America, and to the metropolises of the industrial North. Drawing on a wealth of previously un-mined legal and archival sources, Karen Tani reveals how reformers attempted to build a more bureaucratic, centralized, and uniform public welfare system; how traditions of localism, federalism, and hostility towards the 'undeserving poor' affected their efforts; and how, along the way, more and more Americans came to speak of public income support in the powerful but limiting language of law and rights.

Keeping the Compound Republic Brookings Institution

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The framers of the U. S. Constitution focused intently on the difficulties of achieving a workable middle ground between national and local authority. They located that middle ground in a new form of federalism that James Madison called the "compound republic." The term conveys the complicated and ambiguous intent of the framing generation and helps to make comprehensible what otherwise is bewildering to the modern citizenry: a form of government that divides and disperses official power between majorities of two different kinds --one composed of individual voters, and the other, of the distinct political societies we call states. America's federalism is the subject of this collection of essays by Martha Derthick, a leading scholar of American government. She explores the nature of the compound republic, with attention both to its enduring features and to the changes wrought in the twentieth century by Progressivism, the New Deal, and the civil rights revolution. Interest in federalism is likely to increase in the wake of the 2000 presidential election. There are demands for reform of the electoral college, given heightened awareness that it does not strictly reflect the popular vote. The U. S. Supreme Court, under Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, has mounted an explicit and controversial defense of federalism, and new nominees to the Court are likely to be questioned on that subject and appraised in part by their responses. Derthick's essays invite readers to join the Court in weighing the contemporary importance of federalism as an institution of government.

Smart Decisions PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Decision makers need to modify their thinking about how they deal with acquiring and analyzing information in each of the decision-making process steps. This approach requiring thinking modification will lengthen the process, make it more complex and to some more arduous, but the comprehensiveness of the new thinking approach should lead to improved and more effective decision making. The overall thinking modification framework presented in this book begins by suggesting that a decision-making process has to be uniquely applied to each of three different situational states-a current state, a future state and finally, a transition journey state are occurring between the current and future states. In each of these three different situational states, the linear, five-step process is the same, but the underlying issues within each step are different because the three situations themselves are different. The first step consists of a situational analysis to determine which situations in each respective state really need to be changed. For these change-needing situations, identifying and framing the challenges and determining what seems to be their underlying causes become the focus of the second step. Then generating and developing numerous solution possibilities or alternatives to either enhance or reduce/eliminate the causes of the previously-identified challenges constitutes the third step. Deciding which of the solution alternatives will form the solution set or sets constitutes the fourth step. The fifth and final step involves the decision maker planning how to implement the various chosen solutions and to also plan out a set of aftermath separate monitoring, learning, and sustainability control systems. In order to comprehensively develop and investigate each and every one of these five process steps, the decision maker is asked to engage in thoroughly performing the seven thinking framework elements recommended in this book. Again there seems to be a linear mode of conducting these seven thinking elements until feedback looping analysis is performed, then nonlinearity enters the decision-making process. These seven thinking framework elements are described more fully in the succeeding chapters in this book. Suffice it to say that complex and even arduous thinking is required to complete creative and critical thinking, develop end state outcome expectations and evaluation criteria and conduct feedback looping analysis and consequence analysis before arriving at the final output for each step. Various tools and/or techniques to create many of these thinking framework elements are also described in this book. All of this information is captured in the following six chapters of this book.

Inheriting Syria Brookings Institution

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Syria has long presented a difficult problem for American policymakers. Actively supportive of groups such as Hezbollah, it has occupied Lebanon for more than 20 years. Damascus remains intransigent on Israel's complete withdrawal from the disputed Golan Heights as the sine qua non for peace with that state. It is often mentioned in the same breath as members of the infamous "axis of evil." Syria occupies an important strategic position in the Middle East --one made even more significant as America considers long-term involvement in the reconstruction of Iraq. As the policy challenges posed by Syria's problematic behavior have grown more pressing in the recent security environment, the United States has had difficulty formulating a coherent and effective policy toward Damascus. The death of long-time dictator Hafiz al Assad has forced renewed debate on its place in the region. The transition from Assad to his son Bashar has thrown Western consensus on how to deal with the Syrian leadership further into doubt. In heriting Syria fills this void with a detailed analytic portrait of the Syrian regime under Bashar's leadership. It draws implications for U.S. policy, offering a bold new strategy for achieving American objectives, largely via a strategy of "coordinated engagement" employing both sticks and carrots. This strategy would be independent of the Arab-Israeli peace process, thus a historical departure for the United States. The author's long service in the foreign policy establishment has uniquely positioned him to provide valuable insights into this mysterious yet important country. This book will be of high interest to those concerned about the Middle East, the war on terror, and the future of American foreign policy. Written for a general audience as well as the policymaking and academic communities, Inheriting Syria is an important resource for all who seek deeper understanding of this enigmatic nation and its leadership.

Science and Ethics in Dialogue - 2854480105

Science and Ethics in Dialogue Morgan & Claypool Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book represents my experience teaching graduate students in Biomedical Science at Hood College. Being science majors, the students have a limited background in philosophy and ethics. Most of the graduate students are employed at area research laboratories while also pursuing a Master of Science degree. Their practical day-to-day experience in scientific research is helpful in discussions of responsible conduct of research cases. Being aware of increased cases of misconduct the United States established the Office of Research Integrity (ORI). Their publication, Introduction to the Responsible Conduct of Research, defines misconduct as fabrication, falsification, and plagiarism. Concern for the breach of public trust with repercussions in scientific funding has led to mandates for courses in ethics for students pursuing a scientific career. In addition, the Human Genome Project megaproject funded Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications Research (www.genome.gov/ELSI/) recognizing that the genetic information produced by the project would come with applied ethical dilemmas. Teaching can be understood as conveying knowledge from generation to generation. Likewise systems of morality are collective acquisitions built up over millennia with social norms and values that aim to maintain social order. Research does not support the premise that knowing the rules of conduct will prevent misconduct. Indeed, compliance with rules can give a false sense of security, especially if the ethical reasoning grounding the rules is not understood. Therefore, I try to sketch a path through the potential phases and avenues of a scientific career, imagining that a person may do basic research, serve on ethics committees, and engage the public in ethical use of new advances in genetics. As a result the content of this text is divided into three parts. The first part deals with foundational material on science and ethics and cases that highlight proper scientific professional conduct. The second part deals with clinical research through which a research discovery is moved to the bedside of patients and the ethical parameters of the transition. The third part sketches the ethical dilemmas evolving from progress in genetic information to clinical applications. Helping students find a moral compass, a grounding of why one ought to behave in ethical ways in their profession and more generally in life is challenging. Doing so increases their awareness and mine of potential dilemmas and how to deal with them ethically.
