Community control: the black demand for participation in large American cities by Alan A Altshuler( Book )

10 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Chapter 1, "The Issues," discusses such questions as: Would community control be a step toward racial separatism, intensify social friction, be anti-libertarian, be inimical to government honesty, equity, and professionalism, reduce the capacity of local government for vigorous action and for action based on citywide considerations, or, prove a dead end for blacks themselves? Chapter 2, "The Framework," focuses on the ideal of widespread political participation, the exclusion of blacks from full membership in American society, the persistence of ethnicity in American society, political decentralization, and the American unwillingness to forego political representation in dealing with political bureaucracies. Chapter 3 discusses the concrete interests of those opposing and proposing community control. Chapter 4, "Plausible Options," analyzes the problems of defining neighborhoods, establishing mechanisms of representation and accountability, and the general areas of finance, personnel, and contracting. Chapter 5, "a Personal Statement," discusses the following questions: Would community control be conducive to racial peace, to the development of black skills and incomes, and to the improvement of other conditions in the ghettos?

The Future of the automobile : the report of MIT's International Automobile Program by Alan A Altshuler( Book )

33 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A new shape for the world auto industry emerges from this far-ranging study, which reveals a path of development quite different from those widely forecast and leaves no doubt that the changes ahead will be dramatic.Cited by Business Week as one of 1984's ten best books on business and economics, The Future of the Automobile is the most comprehensive assessment ever conducted of the world's largest industry. It is a collaborative study by leading researchers and industry experts in Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States that covers the industry at the firm level and at the global level. It projects the composition of the industry 20 years hence, estimates long-term demand for the product, focuses on the growing cooperation between producers on individual models even as overall competition in the industry intensifies, and reveals alternative paths for industrial relations.Alan Altshuler is Dean of the Graduate School of Public Administration at New York University. Daniel Roos is Director of the Center for Transportation Studies and Professor of Civil Engineering at MIT where Martin Anderson and James Womack also teach. Daniel Jones teaches at the University of Sussex."

Mega-projects : the changing politics of urban public investment by Alan A Altshuler( Book )

16 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Mega-Projects Alan Altshuler and David Luberoff analyze the unprecedented wave of large-scale (mega- ) public investments that occurred in American cities during the 1950s and 1960s; the social upheavals they triggered, which derailed large numbers of projects during the late 1960s and early 1970s; and the political impulses that have shaped a new generation of urban mega-projects in the decades since. They also appraise the most important consequences of policy shifts over this half-century and draw out common themes from the rich variety of programmatic and project developments that they chronicle." "In comparing their findings with leading theories of urban and American politics, Altshuler and Luberoff arrive at some surprising findings about which perform best and also reveal some important gaps in the literature as a whole. In a concluding chapter, they examine the potential effects of new fiscal pressures, business mobilization to relax environmental constraints, and security concerns in the wake of September 11. And they make clear their own views about how best to achieve a balance between developmental, environmental, and democratic values in public investment decisionmaking."--Jacket
