Governing the metropolis by Scott A Greer( Book )

33 editions published between 1962 and 2016 in English and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an effort to summarize many studies of politics and government in metropolitan areas. It rests upon the work of scores of scholars, actors, and observers. It is by no means complete. Metropolitanization has come upon us so rapidly that we are still struggling to understand it. Undoubtedly many complexities are omitted, many generalizations are debatable. I have followed the strategy of sacrificing detailed documentation to the demands of intellectual order. Thus the book is more than a photograph of big city government; it aims to be an analysis"--Preface

The concept of community : readings with interpretations by David W Minar( Book )

27 editions published between 1070 and 2017 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Community" is a basic concept, perhaps the basic concept, in social science and in social philosophy. Its meanings are many and varied, yet it is pre-eminent in discussions of man and his world. The editors of this book have selected material from many sources in an attempt to explore the meaning and relevance of the idea of community as it is used in social science, political commentary, and general literature. The book is organized around four basic problems: What aspect of social life is community? What is the character of community in different settings? What is the relationship of politics to community? What is the prospect for community in today's changing world? To answer these questions, the editors have drawn from historical and contemporary sources in political philosophy, empirical social science, anthropology, sociology, history, political science, and ancient and modern literature (e.g., Isaac Bashevis Singer, C.P. Snow, Lawrence Durrell, and others)--all reflecting a broad spectrum of attitudes and approaches. Community is considered in both Western and non-Western societies. The editors introduce each chapter of the book with a critique and provide the reader with an informed general commentary. Including some of the classic statements on the meaning and importance of "community" while drawing upon new sources of insight, this book supplements courses relating to this central concept. Emphasizing the idea of community as an aspect of social organization and political life, it is especially useful in political science and sociology courses dealing with local politics and the urban world."--Provided by publisher

Strengthening health system governance by Scott A Greer( )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a robust framework that identifies five key aspects of governance, distilled from a large body of literature, that are important in explaining the ability of health systems to provide accessible, high-quality, sustainable health: transparency, accountability, participation, organizational integrity and policy capacity. Part 1 of this book explains the significance of this framework, drawing out strategies for health policy success and lessons for more effective governance. Part 2 explores eight case studies in a number of different parts of the WHO European Region, applying the framework to a range of themes including communicable diseases, public–private partnerships, governing competitive insurance market reform, the role of governance in the pharmaceutical sector, and many more.
