Does America hate the poor? : the other American dilemma : lessons for the 21st century from the 1960s and the 1970s by John E Tropman( )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,073 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropman examines American values and the two groups that threaten those values. One might wonder why, in the world's wealthiest society, do the poor seem so stigmatized. Tropman's answer is that they represent potential and actual fates that create anxiety within the dominant culture and within the actual poor themselves. The response in society is hatred of the poor, he contends, and among the poor themselves, self-hatred. Two groups of poor are analyzed. The status poor-those at the bottom of America's money, deference, power, education, or occupation (and combinations of those). The sta
Effective meetings : improving group decision-making by John E Tropman( Book )

25 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If group meetings seem unproductive, inefficient, and time consuming, then it's time to invest in a text that can assist in making the most of group decision-making meetings. Effective Meetings, 2nd Edition, establishes the rules for effective group decision making, outlines the positions and roles for effective group decision making, and covers the different types of decision groups. Since the first edition, the context in which organizations exist and work has greatly changed, and the book accounts for these changes by addressing issues such as the competitive environment, more resilient organizational structures, and emphasis on quality and evaluation. The second edition has been updated to include references to some of the critical issues facing agencies today such as family and community violence, health care, and homelessness. For illustrative purposes, it also includes a variety of meetings such as staff meetings, advisory groups, board meetings, intergroups, and intercultural meetings. Unlike the first edition that targeted a more general management, this edition is specifically for human services

The Catholic ethic and the spirit of community by John E Tropman( Book )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting where Max Weber's The Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism left off, John E. Tropman develops the idea that there is another religious-based ethic permeating society, a Catholic ethic. Where Weber proposed that a Protestant ethic supported the development of capitalism, Tropman argues that there is a Catholic ethic as well, and that it is more caring and community-oriented. Weber's notion of the Protestant ethic has become widely accepted, but until Tropman's work, beginning in the mid-1980s, there had been no complete discussion of another fully-formed religious-based ethic. He suggests that if the Protestant ethic is an "achievement" ethic, the Catholic ethic is a "helping" one. Tropman outlines a Catholic ethic that is distinctive in its sympathy and outreach toward the poor, and in its emphasis on family and community over economic success. This book fully explores the Catholic ethic and its differing focus by using both historical and survey research. It also points to the existence of other religious-based ethics
