The politics of American foreign aid by Michael Kent O'Leary( Book )

18 editions published between 1967 and 2017 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every year the Administration and the Congress battle stubbornly and often bitterly over appropriations for foreign aid. Clearly much more is at stake than a difference of opinion over a small fraction of the annual budget: the tug-of-war stems from clashes of basic political philosophies, divergent approaches to one of the most important elements of our foreign policy, and inherent conflicts among various domestic power blocs.In his book, which adds a much-needed dimension to the discussion and analysis of United States foreign policy, O'Leary reveals the many complex factors that go into the making of American foreign aid policy. While placing the emphasis on the political system as a whole--its components, the relative power of actors in the system, and the manner in which they interact to create policy--the author presents a detailed and enlightening picture of the attitudes of the general public, the political parties, the pressure groups, and Congress itself to the issue of foreign aid.Basing his work on poll data, press comment, Congressional and Executive documents, Congressional roll-call votes, and interviews with congressmen, their assistants, foreign aid officials, and lobbyists, O'Leary makes clear how the workings of the American political system affect our foreign aid policy and programs. Originally published in 1967, it remains useful for all courses dealing with our foreign relations, Congress, or the specifics of the operation of our government."--Provided by publisher

10 editions published between 1973 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection is composed of four files: one World Event Interaction Survey file (Part 1), and three data values files including an Aggregate Data Values file (Part 2), a Treaty Data Values Issue Position file (Part 3), and an Event Data Values Issue Position File (Part 4). The datasets were created as part of the PRINCE Project of the International Relations Program of Syracuse University and are designed to provide estimates for the values of the principal variables used in the model underlying PRINCE, a programmed international computer environment, but may be used for other research and teaching purposes. Variables in these files pertain to issue positions, influence attempts, power, affect, and economic, diplomatic, and social transactions. The World Event Interaction Survey file (Part 1) contains information on the type, direction, and effect of transaction, the type and value of issue acts, geographic location, and topic and value of expressions of affect. A total of 5,593 acts coded for 231 dyads (directional) include acts of the United States toward 106 nations, acts of 104 nations toward the United States, acts among the members of 19 directional dyads, and acts from Israel to Egypt and Egypt to Israel, in the period 1966-1969. The Aggregate Data Values file (Part 2) contains measurements of power and transaction levels for the 107 nations in Part 1. Data were collected for 1967 for most of the variables in this file. Information is provided on gross national product (GNP), population estimates, military expenditures, United States' and the nations' diplomats, the nations' exports to and imports from the United States, United States' tourists to and from the nations, the number of United States' students in the nations and the number of students from the nations in the United States, and the number of the nations' telegrap ...

This publication will help high school and college students develop policy analysis skills and techniques and apply these to important public issues. A public policy issue is defined as a disagreement between two or more elements of a society over the way that the society's government deals with a given situation. There are six chapters. Chapter one deals with the basic concepts necessary to analyze public policy issues. Discussed are organizing information and values on public policy issues and types of public policy analysis including monitoring, forecasting, evaluation, and prescription. Chapters two and three discuss the acquisition of information necessary for the analysis. Chapter two explores the use of many different data sources valuable in acquiring information including dictionaries and encyclopedias, journal articles, almanacs, newspapers, government documents, and microforms. Chapter three deals with surveys and interviews. Chapter four explores the application of descriptive statistics in the analysis of public policy issues. Chapter five concerns benefit-cost analysis of proposed public policy issues and the use of scientific and quasi-scientific research designs in the analysis of public policy. The concluding chapter discusses the Prince Political Accounting System which is a technique for assessing the impact of various individuals, groups, and organizations on public policy decisions.
