Welfare medicine in America; a case study of Medicaid by Robert Bocking Stevens( Book )

10 editions published between 1973 and 2017 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study was undertaken for three reasons: Medicaid is a vital program-in the early 1970s it provided care for over one tenth of the American population. It is a huge program-in the same period it consumed over nine billion dollars of public funds. And Medicaid is, in many ways, the most direct involvement with the provision of medical care undertaken by either the federal government or the states. But until the publication of this book, Medicaid had not been studied in depth or in a systematic way. Welfare Medicine in America is the complete history of Medicaid. The authors carefully examine the program's historical antecedents, its strengths, and its weaknesses. In part one, "The Coming of Medicaid," the hows and whys of the establishment of Medicaid are discussed, as are the basic provisions of the program. In part two, "The Euphoric Demise: July 1965-January 1968," the focus is on how Medicaid is administered in the states. In part three, "The Storm: January 1968-July 1970," specific amendments to Medicaid, the costs involved, and other health programs are examined. And in part four, "Benign Neglect: July 1970-June 1973," the role of the courts in administering Medicaid, and its future, are the primary subjects. This history of Medicare, however, goes beyond the specific government program itself and offers a paradigm for inquiring into the problems of medical care in general and the nature and limitations of public medical services. Welfare Medicine in America is a profound analysis of Medicaid and welfare systems, and will be of great use to policymakers, students of welfare and government, and to those working within the medical profession
Law school : legal education in America from the 1850s to the 1980s by Robert Bocking Stevens( Book )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in English and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the American law school since the 1850s is discussed. During the period after 1800, the replicas of the English legal profession were almost nonexistent in the United States, and Jacksonian Democracy was characterized by a decline in formal standards for legal education. In the early 1850s, law began again to be seen as a learned profession. The expansion of law schools and the extension of the power of lawyers were related to the economic expansion and social restructuring of the country after the Civil War. The growth of Columbia University's law school after 1850 was ultimately overshadowed by the rise of the Harvard Law School in the decades after 1870. The case method was founded at Harvard University, which also took the lead in creating new structural standards and a new type of educator thought to be needed by American legal education. In addition to the growth in the number of law schools, the legal profession was institutionalized, which made it difficult for women to become lawyers. Attention is directed to attempts of the establishment to control the market, criticisms of the case method, the interaction of law and the social sciences, the Realist movement, rising standards, the era of civil rights activism and radicalism, and legal theory. A bibliography is appended. (Sw)
