The community in America by Roland Leslie Warren( Book )

70 editions published between 1963 and 2017 in English and German and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Während die kritische Diskussion über die Folgen von zweieinhalb Jahrzehnten Woh nungsbau und die Erfordernisse des künftigen Städtebaus in der Bundesrepublik gerade erst richtig in Gang zu kommen scheint; während die Ausbildung zur Stadt und Regionalplanung durch die Einrichtung eigener Studiengänge soeben beginnt und die Planungsverfahren sich rapide der rationalen Instrumentarien der ökonometrie und der Datenverarbeitung bemächtigen: in diesem Zeitpunkt mag es auf den ersten Blick anachronistisch erscheinen, wenn dem deutschen Interessenten eine Studie über die amerikanische Gemeinde als besonders aktuell präsentiert wird. Sind nicht die Verhältnisse des Bau-und Planungswesens, des Boden-und Baumarktes in den Ver einigten Staaten und in Westdeutschland derart unterschiedlich, daß jeder Vergleich irreführen muß? Liegen nicht die sozialen Probleme der westdeutschen Entwicklung eher bei den Fragen nach der Struktur der großstädtischen Ballungen, nach der Sa nierung alter Baubestände als in der Untersuchung örtlicher Gemeinwesen, deren Ausprägung gerade in den amerikanischen Städten infolge der Einwanderungsge schichte und der liberal-kapitalistischen Gesellschaftsorganisation ganz anders ausfallen muß als hier? Solche Fragen sind berechtigt, berühren aber die vorliegende Studie WaTrens nicht. Diese stößt vielmehr in eine Lücke der bisherigen überlegungen vor und sucht Ge dankengänge untereinander zu verknüpfen, die im nordamerikanischen wie im west deutschen Schrifttum - wenngleich auf unterschiedliche Weise - voneinander isoliert verfolgt werden. Es ist kein Zufall, daß ihre Synthese eher dort als hier in Angriff genommen wurde

Families in the energy crisis : impacts and implications for theory and policy by Robert Perlman( Book )

9 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the effects of the energy crisis of 1973-74 and 1977 on 1440 American families in three metropolitan areas. An analytic framework was developed for interpreting the outcomes and the processes by which families responded to the crisis. This book presents a conceptual framework for tracing the interactions between large-scale events and families, and it analyses the responses of American families to the energy crisis and the impacts of their responses on other economic and social units. The analytical framework treats family adjustments to a crisis as: (1) a series of processes extending over time; and (2) changes in the performance of family tasks for its own members and for other social systems. Chapter titles indicating contents are: (1) Introduction; (2) An Analytical Model of Families and Crises; (3) The Energy Crisis Unfolds in Hartford, Mobile, and Salem; (4) 1,440 Families React; (5) Family Adjustments; (6) Attrition, Repercussions, and Energy Conservation; (7) Different Families, Different Burdens; (8) Three Years Later-Crisis ii; (9) Energy Conservation and Public Policy; and (10) Focus on Families. Appendices include: (1) Survey Design and Implementation; (2) Follow-Up Mail Survey in September 1975; (3) The Validation Study; and (4) Socioeconomic Differences Among Families in Brandies Sample.

Politics and African-American ghettos by Roland Leslie Warren( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The black ghetto is a byproduct of American social policy. It came into being within policies that were adopted - deliberately or inadvertently - and will persist, in the absence of drastic changes in policy. "Politics and the Ghettos" searches out the policy-making processes that have created the ghetto and that maintain it. Roland L. Warren has assembled, in this volume, the work of researchers who examine complex forces and counter forces which result in perpetuating in our cities areas in which poverty, poor housing, inadequate education, and involuntary segregation converge to form a black ghetto. This work present a variety of points of view, strongly held and at times hotly contested, searching out the relevant policymaking processes in various sectors and levels of American society. For example, Norton Long discusses the ghetto's particular failing: a social and political structure based on lower-class culture and lacking strong middle-class leaders. Roland Warren suggests that the "ghetto system" does not make the individual part of the larger society, but causes people to view it with fear and anger. Robert Wood examines the way big-city policy is made - or left unmade - in regard to ghettos. Charles Adrian discusses the relation of state governments to city ghettos. Daniel Elazar asserts that the current ferment for local control is a return to sound principles of American federalism based on "noncentralization, territorial democracy, and partnership." Charles Schottland documents the role of giant bureaucracies - in the federal government and in nongovernmental organizations in influencing social welfare policy. Whitney Young, Jr., indicates political pathways open to those who desire an active part in attacking the ghetto system. This provocative work raises disturbing questions having to do with the processes through which American ghettos are created and sustained, processes that must be altered if problems inherent in the black ghetto are to be attacked"--Provided by publisher
