The military in the political development of new nations : an essay in comparative analysis by Morris Janowitz( Book )

32 editions published between 1962 and 1971 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Om sikkerhedspolitik. Om militærets og de væbnede styrkers rolle i de "nye nationer" - de underudviklede landes samfund og politik. "This essay focuses on comparative analysis, eventhough comparison at the nation-state level is an elusive task. The research strategy is to emphasize military institutions and military elites in their common characteristics and in their national differences in order to throw light on the various patterns of civil-military relations found in new nations. A new nation is confronted with the issue of whether the population at large accepts its political leaders as legitimate. New nations are countries where some form of political revolution has taken place. Those which have not had their political revolution are likely to face one. In this process of political revolution, colonial forms are eliminated. The act of national liberation - with or without force - establishes a pragmatic basis for a legitimate government. The military, with its symbols of authoruty and force, is part of the apparatus of a legitimate government." Bogen er opdelt i tre dele: I. The Strategy of Comparative Analysis. II. The Internal Organization of the Military. III. Army and Society
The last half-century : societal change and politics in America by Morris Janowitz( Book )

17 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Half-Century represents the culmination of a lifetime of scholarship by Morris Janowitz. In this comprehensive and systematic analysis of the major trends in American society during the past fifty years, he probes the weakening of popular party affiliations and the increased inability of elected representatives to rule. Centering his work on the crucial concept of social control, Janowitz orders and assesses a vast amount of empirical research to clarify the failure of basic social institutions to resolve our chronic conflicts. For Janowitz, social control denotes a society's capacity to regulate itself within a moral framework that transcends simple self-interest. He poses urgent questions: Why has social control been so drastically weakened in our advanced industrial society? And what strategies can we use to strengthen it again? The explanation rests in part on the changes in social structure which make it more and more complicated for citizens to calculate their political self-interest. At the same time, complex economic and defense problems also strain an already overburdened legislative system, making effective, responsive political rule increasingly difficult. Janowitz concludes by assessing the response of the social sciences to the pressing problem of social control and asserts that new forms of citizen participation in the government must be found.--Publisher description

Institution building in urban education by Morris Janowitz( Book )

19 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a sociological perspective on the issues involved in transferring the institutional structure of inner city schools, and discusses the closing of the gap between sociological analysis and policy, and professional practice and citizen participation. Examining the published and unpublished studies of experimental programs in urban education, and various surveys and proposals for reorganizing public school systems, the book focuses on the following areas: the slum school and contemporary society, the organizational format of the public school system, alternative models of change, operational elements of the school system, and school-community relations. For inner city education, the basic implications of the specialization and the aggregation models are held to rest on political issues of Federal versus state and local control, and geared to be relevant to the differing forms of control. The notion of the aggregation model, however, is concluded to be the one relevant to the entire social structure. (Rj)
