Cops, teachers, counselors : stories from the front lines of public service by Steven Maynard-Moody( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first major study of street-level bureaucracy to rely on storytelling. The authors collect and examine the everyday work stories told by police, teachers, and counselors to arrive at an interpretation of how "frontline" government workers approach their work and process their experiences. The authors identify two coexisting, though at times rival, metanarratives, which they label the "state-agent narrative" and the "citizen-agent narrative." The former portrays a democratic state as an edifice built on law and predictable procedures that insure like cases will be treated alike and that street-level workers are the agents of elected and administrative principals. The citizen-agent narrative, on the other hand, reveals workers concentrating on the identities and moral character of the individuals and groups with whom they must interact. The citizen-agent narrative provides a frame or map that workers employ when there are tensions between their view of fairness and the dictates of policy and law. The authors reveal both the destructive and constructive effects of workers' employment of the citizen-agent narrative and argue that both narratives are irreducible elements of contemporary governance."--Publisher description

Using the soldiers' own voices, Musheno and Ross draw upon the life stories of members of an Army Reserve MP Company, who were called to extraordinary service after September 11. The book explores how and why they joined the Army Reserve, how they dealt with the seismic changes in their lives during and after deployment, the evolution of their relationships inside and outside their military unit, and their perspectives on the U.S. Army.

Criminal justice : a public policy approach by James P Levine( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentrating on the conflicts of interest among criminal justice system components, between the public and its perception of crime, and among policymakers, this analysis promotes new public policy directions. First, an analysis of crime, criminals, and the criminal justice system provides a perspective to help distinguish myths about ideal system operation from the reality of its functioning. This conceptual framework focuses on the conflicting priorities of private motives and public interests, perceptions (and misconceptions) of crime, theories about what constitutes a criminal, and the implementation of criminal justice policy from these perceptions. The workings of each of the major components of the criminal justice system are then examined, with attention to the real roles and interests of the police, lawyers (attorneys and the defense counsel), the courts, and corrections. Interests and goals that are prime points of conflict between these components are detailed, as is the impact of these conflicts on law enforcement and crime. Third, four policies currently being used in the U.S. to deal with crime are explored -- deterrence, rehabilitation, decriminalization, and diversion. Attempts are made to fit each policy into its historical beginning a and to highlight reasons for its emerging as an important policy; each policy's assumptions about the nature of crime and the nature of criminals are discussed. Finally, processes for assessing policies and their impact on society and crime are presented; the processes are evaluated for advantages and pitfalls. Evaluations of research designed to assess policies then lead to proposals for improving criminal justice policy
Navigating conflict : how youth handle trouble in a high-poverty school by Calvin Morrill( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban schools are often associated with violence, chaos, and youth aggression. But is this reputation really the whole picture? In Navigating Conflict, Calvin Morrill and Michael Musheno challenge the violence-centered conventional wisdom of urban youth studies, revealing instead the social ingenuity with which teens informally and peacefully navigate strife-ridden peer trouble. Taking as their focus a multi-ethnic, high-poverty school in the American southwest, the authors complicate our vision of urban youth, along the way revealing the resilience of students in the face of carceral disciplinary tactics. Grounded in sixteen years of ethnographic fieldwork, Navigating Conflict draws on archival and institutional evidence to locate urban schools in more than a century of local, state, and national change. Morrill and Musheno make the case for schools that work, where negative externalities are buffered and policies are adapted to ever-evolving student populations. They argue that these kinds of schools require meaningful, inclusive student organizations for sustaining social trust and collective peer dignity alongside responsive administrative leadership. Further, students must be given the freedom to associate and move among their peers, all while in the vicinity of watchful, but not intrusive adults. Morrill and Musheno make a compelling case for these foundational conditions, arguing that only through them can schools enable a rich climate for learning, achievement, and social advancement." -- Publisher's website
Knowing rights : state actors' stories of power, identity, and morality by Trish Oberweis( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2019 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using case studies in the field, the book conducts an exploration of the State, whilst holding onto the strong notions of identity, power and normative orientation. It introduces a unique notion of 'rights' by arguing that workers assert identity and power as they make judgements about who gets what from the State."--Jacket

AIDS-related written court decisions in federal and state courts, 1984-1989 [United States]( )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection was designed to identify the party characteristics, case attributes, and idea structures of written court decisions related to Auto-Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Written court decisions related to AIDS in state and federal courts were located via the LEXUS and WESTLAW data systems. For a case to be eligible, it had to address an issue involving AIDS or involve a party who was believed to be infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), and a legal decision had to provide sufficient written material to analyze. Coding was completed by three individuals with legal training based on a team-developed codebook. Except in those areas where a preliminary test showed 90-percent reliability, variables were coded based on a consensus rule. Variables include court jurisdiction, whether the case was civil or criminal, case issue area, gender of plaintiff, relationship between parties, demand and primary purpose of the demand by the defendant and the plaintiff, what the court explicitly relied upon for its decision, whether the plaintiff or defendant had AIDS, AIDS-Related Complex (ARC), or was HIV-infected, and whether the plaintiff or defendant was gay, an IV drug user, a prisoner or an accused criminal, a member of a stigmatized group, or a racial or an ethnic minority. The unit of analysis is the written court decision ... Cf.: http://webapp.icpsr.umich.edu/cocoon/ICPSR-STUDY/06502.xml

Justice in the Delivery of Government Services [United States] : Decision Norms of Street-Level Bureaucrats in Select Southwest and Midwest U.S. Cities, 1996-99 by Steven Maynard-Moody( )

2 editions published in 2005 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the various factors involved in the decision norms of street-level bureaucrats. The principal investigators explored how police officers, school teachers, and vocational rehabilitation counselors decided what was fair and right in individual cases and how this assessment affected the delivery of governmental services. The data in this collection consist of street-level work stories or narratives, semi-structured entry and exit interviews, and a structured questionnaire. Participants from the aforementioned job categories were drawn from select southwest and midwest United States cities over a period of three years (1996-1999). Part 1 includes the quantitative data from the structured questionnaire. Part 2 includes transcripts of the narratives and interviews. The entry interview was designed to gather background information on the participants and to explain and schedule the story collection process. Participants were queried about their work history, current job, and relations with citizen-clients, coworkers, and supervisors. They were asked to describe their various personal, professional, and group identities and how their social identities related to those of the citizens with whom they interacted. They were also asked to describe any
