The great school bus controversy by Nicolaus Mills( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 1977 in English and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology attempts to put the great school bus controversy of the 1970's in perspective by providing a forum in which a series of widely differing views, backed by hard data, can be compared. The first section, "Background and Legal History," places the controversy in a perspective that predates the 1970'S. One article focuses on the history and scope of school busing in America. The second turns on the problem of whether public schools are to be racially mixed or merely color blind. The third article is also concerned with practical consequences, but those relating to a dangerous collision between the Judiciary and the Legislature. The second section, "The Debate Over Evidence and Social Policy," is an extension of the first, but focuses on questions directly concerned with establishing the criteria of a successful busing program and determining the relationship between government policy and social science. By contrast, the writing in section three of the anthology is descriptive rather than analytic in emphasis--a series of direct reports on the impact of busing--many of them "new journalistic" in nature. The final section, "Busing and Black Political Strategy," turns to the issue that could finally determine the outcome of the busing struggle. (Rj)

Getting out : historical perspectives on leaving Iraq by Michael Walzer( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eventually every conqueror, every imperial power, every occupying army gets out. Why do they decide to leave? And how do political and military leaders manage withdrawal? Do they take with them those who might be at risk if left behind? What are immediate consequences of departure? Michael Walzer and Nicolaus Mills ask those questions about exiting, and worry specifically about difficulties certain to arise as we leave, Iraq. First section, entitled "Lessons Learned," examines seven historical cases of how and how not to withdraw: Britain's departure from American colonies and from India, the French withdrawal from Algeria, Israel's unilateral withdrawal from Gaza, and U.S. decision to leave (or not leave) Philippines, Korea, and Vietnam. These cases offer a comparative perspective and an opportunity to learn from history of political and military retreats. Second section, "Exiting Iraq," begins with introduction to how United States got into Iraq and continues with examination of how U.S. might leave from a diversity of voices, ranging from those who believe that Iraq war has produced no real good to those who hope for a decent ending--Publisher's description

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Army's players, their 1964 football game against a Navy team led by its Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, Roger Staubach, was a do-or-die battle. Army had lost to Navy five years in a row. This time a stunning victory by Army changed the Cadets' fortunes and made headlines across the country. With five of its starters playing offense and defense, Army rallied to an 11-8 triumph. The win was the beginning of an even greater challenge for West Point's players. Soon they were in Vietnam, fighting a war that did not end as they or America expected. In Every Army Man Is with You, Nicolaus Mills tells the story of that unforgettable Army team by focusing on the lives of seven of its players as they go from the football field, to the Vietnam battlefield, and back again to the States. Mills sheds light not just on what that the players' experiences meant to them personally but on what their experiences say about the ways the Vietnam era shaped our nation
