Friendly fascism : the new face of power in America by Bertram M Gross( Book )

36 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A look at corporate authoritarianism that William Shirer called "the best thing I've ever seen on how America might go fascist democratically." In 1980, US capitalist politics wore a "nice-guy mask," a troubling disguise to cover up a creeping despotism in which the ultra-rich and corporate overseers were merging with a centralized state power in order to manage the populace. This immanent corporate authoritarianism threatened to subvert constitutional democracy. But unlike the violent and sudden usurpations that led to fascism in the days of Hitler, Mussolini, and the Japanese empire builders, this new "smiling" American breed of fascism was gaining ground through gradual and silent infringements on the freedoms of the American people. First published over three decades ago, Friendly Fascism is uncannily predictive of the threats and realities of current political and economic power trends. Author Bertram Gross, a presidential adviser during the New Deal era, traces the history and logic of declining democracy in First World countries and pinpoints capitalist transnational growth and inappropriate responses to global crises as the sources of late twentieth-century despotism in America. Gross issues ever-urgent warnings about what happens when big business and big government become bedfellows-chronic inflation, recurring recession, overt and hidden unemployment, the poisoning of the environment-and simultaneously proffers a practical shift of perspective that could help US citizens build a truer democracy. He imagines an America in which heroes are no longer needed and the leadership is a group of non-elitists who "recognize the ignorance of the wise as well as the wisdom of the ignorant."

Legislative strategy : shaping public policy by Edward V Schneier( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Legislative Strategy is a "how-to" book on the creation of public policy through legislative action. Written for scholars, policy makers, and activists, the book focuses on the kinds of strategic and tactical choices that policy advocates face in their attempts to influence Congress and the process of legislation. Legislative Strategy is distinctive in its discussion of the overall political environment in which public policy is crafted, as well as its analysis of how change and manipulation of rules is part of the process by which policy advocates are able to pass legislation. The authors include an extended treatment of subjects such as the flow of "legislative intelligence"; the strategic timing of bills; and the means by which Senate and House members use filibusters, delays, amendments, and protocol to manipulate legislative outcomes
Congress today by Edward V Schneier( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Congress Today examines the legislative process and legislative outputs from three interrelated perspectives: the social and political setting of Congress; the structure and rules of Congress as an organization; and the interests, motives, and strategies of policy advocates." "Using a wide range of historical and contemporary examples of policy-making, the authors provide an in-depth examination of Congress and the politics of making national legislation. Rich in detail on the intrigues and manipulations that take place behind the scenes, the book examines legislative behavior in the larger context of how power is distributed in the United States."--Jacket
