Uniting America : restoring the vital center to American democracy by Norton Garfinkle( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Uniting America, some of the country’s most prominent social thinkers-among them Francis Fukuyama, Daniel Yankelovich, Amitai Etzioni, Alan Wolfe, Uwe Reinhardt, and Thomas E. Mann-reject the myth of polarization. On topics ranging from the war on terrorism, health care, economic policy, and Social Security to religion, diversity, and immigration, the authors argue that there are sensible, centrist solutions that are more in keeping with prevailing public sentiment and that would better serve the national interest. On issue after issue, the authors show how the conventional framing of the debate in Washington has misled Americans, creating a series of false dilemmas and forcing choices between two extremes-at the expense of more balanced and pragmatic policy solutions based on enduring American values.Uniting America provides a blueprint for a fresh approach to American politics, grounded in moderation, pragmatism, and the shared values that unite Americans

The new morality : a profile of American youth in the 70's by Daniel Yankelovich( Book )

10 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 867 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on 3,522 one- to two-hour personal interviews conducted in 1973, this study compares the 1973 views and attitudes of American youth to a survey conducted in the late 1960'S. As a result, significant trends are traced through an era filled with events that deeply affected the lives of young people, such as the peak and ending of the Vietnam war. Changing values under examination include sexual morality; attitudes toward authority, religion, and obligations toward others; social values dealing with attitudes toward the work ethic; marriage, family, and the importance of money in defining the meaning of success; and self-fulfillment. While the largest portion of the sample contains college youth, other people between the ages of 16 and 25 are examined including high school students, blue collar workers, housewives, and high school dropouts. The report is divided into three major sections containing 15 chapters. Section 1 provides an overview and interpretation of the data. Section 2 presents the research contrasting the values of college and noncollege youth. Section 3 presents the research for selected groups such as blue collar workers, minority youth, high school students, women, Vietnam veterans, college graduates in the work force, and the unemployed.

The magic of dialogue : transforming conflict into cooperation by Daniel Yankelovich( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Magic of Dialogue, social scientist Daniel Yankelovich does more than revive the ancient art of dialogue; he reinvents it in a brief, practical form that suits our times. Drawing on decades of research, he offers a method that will help managers, leaders, businesspeople, and other professionals succeed in the new economy. By helping them to master the communication skills needed to conduct dialogue successfully, he shows how the discipline of dialogue can make them more effective managers, strengthen relationships, resolve problems, and achieve shared objectives."--Jacket
Coming to public judgment : making democracy work in a complex world by Daniel Yankelovich( Book )

15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 674 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his most important book to date, Daniel Yankelovich, the dean of American public research, offers a prescription for strengthening the public's hand in its silent power struggle with the experts. With insight gained from over thirty years of research into how public opinion is formed, Yankelovich focuses on an issue of rising concern to us all: the American public's eroding ability to influence its own future. His 'Ten Rule for Resolution' offer leaders and the media hard-hitting pragmatic suggestions for how to present the nation's problems to the American people- and, equally important, for how to listen to what the people have to say."--Back cover
Beyond the beltway : engaging the public in U.S. foreign policy by Beyond the beltway( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the end of the Cold War and the election of Bill Clinton as president, anxiety about America's economic future has replaced foreign affairs as the country's main concern. The United States needs to redefine its national security in terms of a strong domestic policy. But will this lead to a new isolationism that would weaken American ties to the world? In the absence of the stable public consensus that supported an anti-Communist foreign policy, U.S. leaders will need to forge a more direct dialogue with a skeptical public on which U.S. foreign interests they deem vital. In this new climate, how can American policy makers adapt to broaden public support for a strong foreign policy? In this collection of original essays, sponsored by the American Assembly, some of the nation's leading experts on foreign affairs assess the problem of building public involvement in foreign policy in the post-superpower era. Included is Daniel Yankelovich's and John Immerwahr's influential rendering of how to influence public opinion through a series of phased campaigns

Work, productivity, and job satisfaction : an evaluation of policy-related research by Raymond A Katzell( Book )

8 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a multi-disciplinary evaluation of policy-related research (which met relatively high standards of scientific validity) dealing with features of work affecting both the productivity and job satisfaction of employees. Its purpose is to determine whether and how worker job satisfaction and productivity together may be enhanced by changing patterns of job responsibilities, control, and compensation, and to relate the findings to prevalent beliefs on these topics held by policy-makers. Part 1, Summary (Chapters 1, 2, and 3), describes the nature of the research review, relates findings and conclusions, and considers strategies and tactics of initiating and implementing programs which incorporate the positive elements of the findings. Part 2, Research Report, contains chapters addressed to: Description of research method and framework; the survey of beliefs about productivity on the part of samples of executives and labor union officials; three chapters reporting findings regarding job productivity and satisfaction; and a chapter describing examples of system-wide changes. Suggested directions for future policies drawn from the final convergent findings of the research include: (1) Relatively limited programs, such as job enrichment, or incentive pay plans, seem unlikely by themselves to create large or enduring improvements in productivity and job satisfaction; and (2) socio-technical systems which have the features of financial compensation of workers, worker-job compatibility, workers' ability to plan and make decisions about their jobs, appropriate resources to facilitate workers' performance, and adequate "hygiene" conditions, may be able to improve both productivity and job satisfaction. References, a bibliography, and a glossary of technical terms are included. (Sh)
