Mission to Hanoi; a chronicle of double-dealing in high places, a special report from the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions by Harry S Ashmore( Book )

9 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is an eye-opening record of how the United States has formulated and conducted its policies on Vietnam. While billions of dollars have been spent and thousands of American lives have been lost, internal dissensions have racked official Washington, and national interest has been tossed to the winds. The authors bluntly indict the President for employing 'rhetorical overkill' in his effort to pursue a hard-line military policy while still professing to seek a negotiated settlement. This penetrating report is the work of two veteran journalists, Harry S. Ashmore (Pulitzer Prize-winning editor and author) and William C. Baggs (editor of the Miami News) whose journeys to North Vietnam at critical junctures in the last two years were authorized by the State Department. Here they recount the events that made them a key link between Washington and Hanoi during the maneuvering that led to the Paris talks, and offer their appraisal of 'an extraordinary exercise in duplicity.' -- from Back Cover

Women in the world : a comparative study( Book )

6 editions published between 1976 and 1980 in English and held by 992 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This excellent volume is the first attempt at comparative political analysis of the situation of woman in a substantial range of the world's countries. We can, I think, assume that all these facts are related. They are all aspects of the relative powerlessness of the female half of the world's population, a powerless- ness described here for more than twenty different national societies. Lynne Iglitzin and Ruth Ross have produced a volume that is thoroughly professional as well as comprehensive. The list of nations includes developed and developing, capitalist and socialist or communist, democratic and authoritarian: Italy, Ireland, France, West Germany, Great Britain, Ghana, Iran, Algeria, Columbia, Mexico, Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, Israel, Norway, and Sweden. There are also useful, more general discussions of women in Black Africa, Latin America, and the "Muslim world," as well as two excellent work studies of women in Hong Kong and in the European Community. For all, the data are substantial and seem reliable. In addition, it is enormously helpful that the pieces provide the basis for such obvious comparisons as, for instance, the participation in politics and in the work force of women in the United States and the Soviet Union. In the current state of the subject, the material assembled is quite simply invaluable. However, the collection also has the higher ambition to develop a framework for the comparative analysis of the political situation of women. Here it is far less successful. Of course, success in making multiple contributors framework. Nevertheless, the collection point, present in the majority of mistaken. It explains persistent weaknesses analysis of politics, in this collection looking carefully at the statements article "The Patriarchal Heritage."--Review from http://www.jstor.org (August 30, 2016)
Natural law and modern society by Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions( Book )

13 editions published between 1963 and 1981 in English and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of natural law, says the author, "is based on a belief that there exists a moral order which every normal person can discover by using his reason, and of which he must take account if he is to attune himself to his necessary ends as a human being." This notion has supported the philosophy and behaviour of men in all cultures since the beginning of society. It is implicit in the Mosaic code; is fundamental in the thought of Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Rousseau, Newton and Mill; served as the "higher law" basis for English common law and the American Constitution; and is still relevant today. It is to natural law and to its relation to the condition of our society that the seven distinguished contributors to this volume address themselves. In keeping with their widely divergent backgrounds and different faiths, the writers reveal a refreshing range of opinion within a fundamental unity
