5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Walter Williams shows how Reagan and his foremost disciple George W. Bush have created a plutocracy where the United States is no longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, but it is ruled by the wealthiest individuals and corporate America. Williams urges Americans to move from political apathy and draw aside the power curtain to see the politicians and the corporations lurking there - and to see the dangers they represent to the American way of life."--Jacket

Social program implementation by Walter Williams( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to stimulate inquiry into the area of implementation in three social policy areas: education programs; community-oriented programs; and transfer-payment*programs. It is intended for government groups and social science researchers, including analysts, who carry out programs, researchers who are engaged in social policy studies, and those who are concerned directly with the study of implementation issues. The typical chapter analyzes in some detail, a specific case of social program implementation and through this analysis of process reveals the complexity of implementation. Some of the programs analyzed include the following: Title v of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Model Cities Program and the Supplemental Security Income Program. The greatest problem in devising social programs is finding the means for converting the policies into feasible field operations that correspond to the original intentions. Rather than suggesting that monetary or political problems are the major blocks that hinder the development of better social programs, implementation problems are blamed. (Am)
The politics of bad ideas : the great tax cut delusion and the decline of good government in America by Bryan D Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Politics of Bad Ideas examines why, over the last quarter century, bad economic ideas -- such as cutting taxes without cutting spending -- have become so influential in shaping government policies. Using in-depth research and trenchant political and economic analysis, the book explores why those bad ideas continue to survive despite overwhelming evidence that they in fact cause damage to the federal government's long-term fiscal stability and the American economy."--Publisher's website

Disaster policy implementation : managing programs under shared governance by Peter J May( Book )

9 editions published between 1986 and 2011 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal disaster policy is an important but overlooked aspect of federal action that has provided a rich arena for pursuing our more general research interests concerning federal program implementation and management. May brought to the research task both a familiarity with the broad issues of federal disaster policy-having recently completed a book (May, 1985) about disaster relief policy and politics-and an understanding of the day-to-day workings of emergency management at the federal level. Williams provided the "imple­ mentation perspective" that undergirds the book, having previously devel­ oped and applied the perspective in two books (Williams, 1980a, b) about social programs. The study focuses upon the intergovernmental implementation of selected emergency management programs, primarily as played out at the federal and state levels. Our fieldwork and resultant description of disaster policy implementation allow us: (I) to analyze the implementation of selected aspects of disaster policy and to discuss federal management choices in this area; (2) to gain a greater understanding of federal program implementation under "shared governance"-a term we develop more fully in the book in referring to programs under which the federal and subnational governments share responsibility for program funding and management; and (3) to con­ sider the relevance of the lessons of earlier social program implementation research to a very different policy setting. Many individuals assisted us with this research. Our greatest debt is to those federal and state officials who took time from their busy schedules to offer their implementation perspectives about emergency management
