Continuity and disruption : essays in public administration by Matthew Holden( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Holden's view of administration, a crucial problem is turbulence: the presence of simultaneous pressures toward continuity and toward disruption. Holden examines turbulence in the intellectual history of administration as reflected in traditional political theory and in specific contemporary theories of organization, bureaucracy, and management. He also analyzes political dogmas as a form of control over turbulence, considering such concepts as executive leadership and the emergence of administrative law. He turns an unblinking eye on the practice of public administration today, buffeted by changes in technology and ethnic diversity

The politics of poor relief: a study in ambiguities by Matthew Holden( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1974 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essay addresses both the question of poverty and the scope of political science. The study of poverty demands a transeconomic approach because the act of making an economic choice is fundamentally political, but the act is likely to be ambiguous and that ambiguity is peculiarly revealed in the politics of poor relief. While the idea of "welfare" implies an underlying concept of "rights, ""poor relief" actually reflects policymakers' judgments about which parts of the population can be left over when the most important economic choices (macroeconomic policy) are being made. In the U.S. public relief is a form of aid accruing to those who are jobless and whose joblessness is not their own "fault," using the social estimation of fault. Its chief form is public assistance. Public assistance is ambiguous, both as to loci of decision and to policy content. The ambiguity as to loci of decision is an expression of (1) federalism and (2) the changing administrative legislature relationship as policy once more becomes open to debate, hence "legislativized." The ambiguity as to policy is expressed (1) in the variety of "welfare reform" proposals and the inability to secure approval for any, and (2) the inversion of reform symbolism since the 1960's, so that it now has a restrictive tone, but (3) the fact that the conservatizing trend has also been exaggerated.

The challenge to racial stratification( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Political Science Review is the official publication of the National Conference of Black Political Scientists. This series, now entering its fourth volume, includes significant scholarly research reflecting the diverse interests of scholars from various backgrounds who use different models, approaches, and methodologies. The central focus is on politics and policies that advantage or disadvantage groups because of race, ethnicity, gender, and other major variables. In his introduction to this volume, Matthew Holden describes the rationale for the creation of American racial stratification, and boldly shows how American intellectuals have helped reinforce that stratification. Several chapters discuss conflicts in contemporary views of the United States, ranging from a belief in its being a free society to the historical reality of the nation's background as a slave society. Other chapters address the international problem of racial stratification, concentrating on Nigeria and South Africa

The changing racial regime( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The integrating concept is the old word "regime," which political scientists have used in many situations before to define such more or less persistent, though not necessarily permanent, orders of precedence. If no significant benefits and no significant burdens could be forecast by knowledge of the social identity called race, then the regime could be seen as non-racial. In American experience, the regime was, at one time, purposeful and sustained white advantage. The "white race" and its preferential standing, was central to virtually all institutional practice - public and private. The significant contemporary question is the degree of change in the racial regime. Some proceed with the assumption that a large degree of change has occurred in the American political system. The view of other contributors is that the system still sustains racial stratification
