Psychosis and civilization; two studies in the frequency of mental disease by Herbert Goldhamer( Book )

11 editions published between 1949 and 1953 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The two studies presented in this volume complement each other. The first attempts to show, and in fact we believe does show, that there has been no increase in the frequency of the psychoses during the past one hundred years. The second examines in greater detail the frequency of major mental illnesses today and provides a convenient means of expressing this in terms of the risk of such illness during the individual's life span or some particular portion of it. Looked at from the standpoint of their implications for social welfare, the results of these two studies make a contrasting impression. The first provides a fairly agreeable view of the future, agreeable that is to a generation whose optimism often has to base itself on the conviction that at any rate things are not getting worse. Certainly there is comfort to be gotten from findings that dispel the gloomier expectations concerning the future mental health of the nation. Most of these are based on the belief that there has been, during the past generation, a steady increase in the frequency of the psychoses. This view is here shown to be unwarranted. The satisfaction to be derived from this is, however, somewhat dimmed by the findings of the second study which estimates the probability that a person who survives to a given age will be stricken by a serious mental illness of either an episodic or continuing nature. We have estimated that this chance is about 1 in 20 by the age of 45 and about 1 in 10 by the age of 65. In the light of this we are not likely to be led, by the results of our first study, to indulge in festive celebrations. Our findings give us warrant for emphasizing not that mental health is just as good today as it was in the past, but rather that mental health was just as bad in the past as it is now"--Foreword.

An application of Markov processes to the study of the epidemiology of mental disease [by] Andrew W. Marshall and Herbert Goldhamer by Andrew W Marshall( Book )

3 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the studies the emphasis is on the applied mathematical statistics and model construction of simple Markov processes. The models are very simple ones and in their present form are intended only to provide rough estimates of certain epidemiological parameters that are not directly observable or that can be secured only by expensive and time-consuming field surveys.

The 1951 Korean Armistice Conference : a personal memoir by Herbert Goldhamer( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1951, the late Herbert Goldhamer, a senior RAND analyst, spent several months as an adviser to the United Nations team that was negotiating with the North Koreans and the Chinese at Panmunjom. Long classified, this now historic document is an unedited transcript of the observations Goldhamer dictated immediately after his return. Intended to capture impressions while they were still fresh, this lively account was to be the raw material for a later more systematic analysis. It offers the reader a firsthand look, through the eyes of an astute observer, at the roles that interpersonal relations and culturally based perceptions play in diplomatic negotiations. The volume includes a Foreword by Andrew W. Marshall and an Introduction by Ernest R. May

Strategic appraisal : the changing role of information in warfare( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Advances in information technology have led us to rely on easy communication and readily available information--both in our personal lives and in the life of our nation. For the most part, we have rightly welcomed these changes. But information that is readily available is available to friend and foe alike; a system that relies on communication can become useless if its ability to communicate is interfered with or destroyed. Because this reliance is so general, attacks on the information infrastructure can have widespread effects, both for the military and for society. And such attacks can come from a variety of sources, some difficult or impossible to identify. This, the third volume in the Strategic Appraisal series, draws on the expertise of researchers from across RAND to explore the opportunities and vulnerabilities inherent in the increasing reliance on information technology, looking both at its usefulness to the warrior and the need to protect its usefulness for everyone. The Strategic Appraisal series is intended to review, for a broad audience, issues bearing on national security and defense planning
