11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In our rapidly advancing scientific and technological world, many take great pride and comfort in believing that we are on the threshold of new ways of thinking, living, and understanding ourselves.

A time of scandal : Charles R. Forbes, Warren G. Harding, and the making of the Veterans Bureau by Rosemary Stevens( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1920s, with the nation still recovering from World War I, President Warren G. Harding founded a huge new organization to treat disabled veterans: the US Veterans Bureau, now known as the Department of Veterans Affairs. He appointed his friend, decorated veteran Colonel Charles R. Forbes, as founding director. Forbes lasted in the position for only eighteen months before stepping down under a cloud of criticism and suspicion. In 1926, Forbes was sent to Leavenworth Penitentiary, convicted by conspiracy to defraud the United States. Although he was known in his day as a drunken womanizer and a corrupt, betraying toady of a weak, blindsided president, the question persists: was Forbes a criminal or a scapegoat? Historian Rosemary Stevens tells this critical story anew, drawing on previously untapped records to reveal Forbes's role in America's initial and ongoing commitment to veterans. She explores how Forbes's rise and fall in Washington illuminates President Harding's efforts to bring business efficiency to government, and she examines the Veterans Bureau scandal in the context of class, professionalism, ethics, and etiquette in a rapidly changing world. Significantly, Stevens proposes a fascinating revisionist view of both Forbes and Harding and raises questions about the validity and the source of their notoriety. They did not defraud the government of billions of dollars, Stevens convincingly documents, and do not deserve the reputation they have carried for a hundred years. Packed with vibrant characters--conniving friends, rival politicians, wronged wives, plus FBI agents, gamblers, and revelers--A Time of Scandal will appeal to aficionados of political gossip, presidential politics, the "Ohio Gang," and the 1920s."--Dust jacket

Policy Challenges in Modern Health Care by Lynn B Rogut( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health care delivery in the United States is an enormously complex enterprise, and its 1.6 trillion annual expenditures involve a host of competing interests. While arguably the nation offers among the most technologically advanced medical care in the world, the American system consistently under performs relative to its resources. Gaps in financing and service delivery pose major barriers to improving health, reducing disparities, achieving universal insurance coverage, enhancing quality, controlling costs, and meeting the needs of patients and families. Bringing together twenty-five of the nation's leading experts in health care policy and public health, this book provides a much-needed perspective on how our health care system evolved, why we face the challenges that we do, and why reform is so difficult to achieve. The essays tackle tough issues including: socioeconomic disadvantage, tobacco, obesity, gun violence, insurance gaps, the rationing of services, the power of special interests, medical errors, and the nursing shortage. Linking the nation's health problems to larger political, cultural, and philosophical contexts, Policy Challenges in Modern Health Care offers a compelling look at where we stand and where we need to be headed
