But is it true? : a citizen's guide to environmental health and safety issues by Aaron B Wildavsky( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Working with his students at a risk analysis center, Wildavsky examined all the evidence behind the charges and countercharges in several controversial cases involving environmental health and public safety. Here he lays out these cases in terms an average citizen can understand, weighs the merits of the claims of various parties, and offers reasoned judgments on the government's response. From Love Canal to Times Beach, from DDT to Agent Orange, acid rain, and global warming, from saccharin to asbestos, Wildavsky shows how we can achieve an informed understanding of the contentious environmental issues that confront us daily. The book supports the conclusion Wildavsky reached himself, both as a citizen committed to the welfare of the earth and its inhabitants, and as a social scientist concerned with how public policy is made: though it is bad to be harmed, it is worse to be harmed in the name of health."--Jacket

The real world order : zones of peace, zones of turmoil by Max Singer( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the resulting demise of Cold War bipolar politics pose a provocative question for observers of the international scene: If there is a new world order, what are its defining features and what do its current tendencies portend for the future? In The Real World Order: Zones of Peace/Zones of Turmoil, Max Singer and Aaron Wildavsky argue that no prior attempt to describe the post-Cold War world order has succeeded because none has divided the apparent disarray into its two parts: zones of peace and democracy, in which they discern a new basis for international relations, and zones of turmoil and development, where the future will be like the past, at least for a while. Singer and Wildavaky integrate political, military, cultural, and economic factors into a coherent vision of how the world works today and what it is becoming. The result is an analysis that is neither liberal nor conservative, hawk nor dove, isolationist nor interventionist, but cuts across the usual stereotypes to sketch the main outlines of a comprehensive world order and provide a realistic basis upon which all parties may debate policy. By taking the perspective of a century or two, rather than focusing on a snapshot of today or a view of a few years, and by comparing the next century with this one, during which over 40 million people were killed in wars and over 100 million by their own governments, Singer and Wildavsky approach their subject with a disconcerting optimism and find in contemporary prospects a hopeful model for progress toward global peace and prosperity. The Real World Order will set the terms for further reflection and debate, and it poses primary questions for the future: How will the stable, prosperous societies in the zones of peace protect their democracy, how will they deal with conflict that does not threaten national survival, and what responsibility will they have to mitigate the horrors of war and poverty in the zones of turmoil during the next century?
