The German Army and the Nazi Party, 1933-1939 by Robert John O'Neill( Book )

28 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and German and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1960s, ideas developed during the civil rights movement have been astonishingly successful in fighting overt discrimination and prejudice. But how successful are they at combating the whole spectrum of social injustice, including conditions that are not directly caused by bigotry? How do they stand up to segregation for instance, a legacy of racism, but not the direct result of ongoing discrimination? It is tempting to believe that civil rights litigation can combat these social ills as efficiently as it has fought blatant discrimination. In this work, the author of the book, The Race Card, argues that this is seldom the case. Civil rights do too much and not enough: opportunists use them to get a competitive edge in schools and job markets, while special interest groups use them to demand special privileges. Extremists on both the right and the left have hijacked civil rights for personal advantage. Worst of all, their theatrics have drawn attention away from more serious social injustices. The author, a professor of law at Stanford University, shows us the many ways in which civil rights can go terribly wrong. He examines newsworthy lawsuits with shrewdness and humor, proving that the distinction between civil rights and personal entitlements is often anything but clear. Finally, he reveals how many of today's social injustices actually can't be remedied by civil rights law, and demands more creative and nuanced solutions. In order to live up to the legacy of the civil rights movement, we must renew our commitment to civil rights, and move beyond them

Alternative nuclear futures : the role of nuclear weapons in the post-cold war world by John Baylis( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major debate has emerged in recent years, which centres on the future role of nuclear weapons in world politics. Focusing attention to the role of nuclear weapons in the post-cold war world, the book argues that unlike the debates which emerged during the cold war period, the contemporary debate has taken place largely in private, with only limited involvement by the general public. What is also significant is the traditional 'left-wing' versus Establishment divide has also largely disappeared. Furthermore, a growing number of senior military and defence officials and governments allied with the United States, openly advocate the abolition of nuclear weapons." "Contributions from leading academics highlight the key themes that have emerged in this debate. The book aims to generate a wider debate about a subject which, despite the changes that have taken place over the last two decades, continues to be of supreme importance."--Jacket
