Perspectives on antitrust policy by University of Virginia( )

4 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 1,655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The problems connected with anti-trust policies in an economy based upon competition are many and varied. This collection of essays written from many points of view attempts to deal with specific issues related to general themes of government and private policy. The contributions consider such topics as anti-trust and national goals, administered prices, concentrations of market power, mergers, competition among commercial banks, problems of small business, transportation industries, exemptions from anti-trust laws, the role of labor unions, and international competition. It is not the purpose of this study to develop a uniform view on competitive policy; rather the participants are acknowledged experts who offer a broad spectrum of opinions and methods of analysis. They include economists, businessmen, labor representatives, and government officials. Originally published in 1965. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
The road to Brown by William A Elwood( Visual )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2010 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents the role of the Black lawyer, Charles Houston, in the landmark Supreme Court case of Brown vs. Board of Education which overturned segregation.The road to Brown tells the story of the Brown v. Board of Education ruling as the culmination of a brilliant legal assault on segregation that launched the Civil Rights movement. It is also a moving and long overdue tribute to a visionary but little known black lawyer, Charles Hamilton Houston, "the man who killed Jim Crow." The road to Brown plunges us into the nightmare world of Jim Crow that robbed former slaves of the rights granted by the 14th and 15th Amendments. Under the "separate but equal" doctrine of the Supreme Court's 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson decision, black citizens were denied the right to vote, to attend white schools, to get sick in white hospitals or to be buried in white cemeteries. Those who objected were liable to be lynched. Charles Houston, the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review, dean of Howard University Law School and chief counsel to the NAACP, launched a number of precedent-setting cases leading up to Brown v. Board of Education. He strategically targeted segregated education as the key to undermining the entire Jim Crow system. Interviews with his associates recount how Houston, eschewing the limelight himself, energized a generation of black jurists including future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall to wage the struggle against segregation. He taught: "A lawyer is either a social engineer or he is a parasite on society." Houston died of a heart attack in 1950, just four years before the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision validated his strategy. In a moving climax, the film recapitulates the arguments before the Court, Justice Warren's opinion striking down Plessy, and the jubilant reactions of black America. Other legal victories followed. But Charles Houston had warned, There's a difference between law on the books and the law in action. We witness how it was the civil rights movement, organized in the wake of Brown, that gave teeth to the new laws. Moving from slavery to civil rights, The road to Brown provides a concise history of how African-Americans finally won full legal equality under the Constitution. Its depiction of the interplay between race, law and history adds a crucial dimension to courses in U.S. History, Black Studies, Constitutional Law, Law & Society, Social Movements and Government. It opens up a discussion of the true significance of the Brown v. Board decision on the path towards racial equality. The example of Charles Houston's persistence and determination will inspire today's students to take America further down the long road to social justice
Faulkner in the university : class conferences at the University of Virginia, 1957-1958 by William Faulkner( Book )

13 editions published between 1959 and 1977 in English and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1957 and 1958 William Faulkner was Writer-in-Residence at the University of Virginia. During that time he held thirty-seven conferences and answered two thousand questions on a wide range of concerns, from exegetic problems in his novels to the role of writer in modern society. Almost every word was recorded on tape, and the result is the classic Faulkner in the University, originally published in 1959. The material collected here offers testimony to some fascinating exchanges between the author and his public and makes up one of the few sourcebooks available on Faulkner's personal views

The Changing politics of education : prospects for the 1980's : proceedings of a symposium by Edith K Mosher( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume records the proceedings of a symposium in which scholars and practitioners from a variety of fields assessed present and future trends in the politics of education. It links relevant past events to significant trends in educational governance and policy-making and contributes to an understanding of the influences and demands that will shape educational policy analysis in future research, teaching, and practice of educational administration. The contributors seek to narrow the gap between research and practice, while also creating a bridge connecting the preoccupations of educators and political analysts with those of professionals in other disciplines. In a similar way, they consider problems that span all sectors of education--elementary, secondary, and postsecondary. Central to all the chapters is the assumption that, in spite of conflicts and concerns brought on by fluctuations in the economy and the instability of needs for educational services, change is likely to be of an incremental nature. Implicit in all chapters and explicit in the final ones is the need for renewed attention to the preservice and inservice preparation of educational administrators. (Author/JM)
