"Califano shows how substance abuse is the culprit in violent and property crime, soaring Medicare and Medicaid costs, family breakup, domestic violence, the spread of AIDS, teen pregnancy, poverty, and low productivity.

He explains the importance of parent power, proposes revolutionary changes in prevention, treatment, and criminal justice, and calls upon every individual and institution to confront this plague that has maimed and killed more Americans than all our wars, natural catastrophes, and traffic accidents combined"--Publisher's description

Califano urges bold action to save the best of American medicine, nourish its genius, contain its costs, and democratize its miracle cures.

Speaking with uncommon candor and lively anecdotes, he shows why successful reform must reshape not just the treatment of illness and injury, but also where the nation invests its research dollars and how much it devotes to prevention

Our damaged democracy : we the people must act by Joseph A Califano( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This authoritative and passionate primer on the three branches of government reveals the changes--political, cultural, constitutional, technological, institutional--that render our government completely dysfunctional, and the urgent need to fix our democracy before it's too late. If you've been watching the news and worrying that our democracy no longer works, this book will help you understand why you're right. There is colossal concentration of power in the Presidency. Congress is crippled by partisanship and dependence on special interest money. The Supreme Court and many lower federal courts are riven by politics. Add politically fractured and fragile media, feckless campaign finance laws, rampant income and education inequality, and multicultural divisions, and it's no wonder our leaders can't agree on anything or muster a solid majority of Americans behind them. With decades as a leader in government, law, and business, Joseph A. Califano, Jr. has the maturity to be party-neutral in his evaluation and the perspective to see the big picture of our democracy. Using anecdotes and examples featuring every modern president and actions of both parties, Califano makes the urgent case that we do not need to agree, but we do need to trust each other and be worthy of that trust, in order to bring back systems of government that protect freedom and promote fairness. The longer we wait to fix these problems, the more dangerous our situation will become. Our Damaged Democracy is the rallying cry we need to get our country back on track
