The color of welfare : how racism undermined the war on poverty by Jill S Quadagno( )

29 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 2,509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yeas after Lyndon Johnson declared a "War on Poverty," the United States still lags behind most Western democracies in national welfare systems, lacking such basic programs as national health insurance and child care support. Some critics have explained the failure of social programs by citing our tradition of individual freedom and libertarian values, while others point to weaknesses within the working class. In "The Color of Welfare", Jill Quadagno takes exception to these claims, placing race at the center of the "American Dilemma." From Reconstruction to Lyndon Johnson and beyond, Quadagno reveals how American social policy has continually foundered on issues of race. Drawing on extensive primary research, Quadagno shows how the anti-poverty programs became inextricably intertwined with the civil rights movement. -- From publisher's description
One nation, uninsured : why the U.S. has no national health insurance by Jill S Quadagno( Book )

27 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 2,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every industrial nation in the world, except the United States, guarantees their citizens access to essential health care services. One in eight Americans, 43 million people, a majority of them in working families, do not have any health care insurance. One Nation, Uninsured offers a history of America's failed efforts to address the health care needs of its citizens. Ranging across the 20th century, Jill Quadagno shows how each attempt to enact national health insurance was met with fierce attacks by powerful stakeholders who mobilized their considerable resources to keep the financing of health care out of the government's hands. Quadagno describes how in the first half of the twentieth century physicians led the anti-reform coalition, fearful that government entry would mean government control of the lucrative private health care market. Doctors lobbied legislators, influenced elections by giving large campaign contributions to sympathetic candidates, and organized "grassroots" protests, conspiring with other like-minded groups to defeat reform efforts. Only with Medicare and Medicaid, coverage for the very poor and the old--two groups that private insurers don't want to cover--have we seen any success with government insured health care. Yet even as Medicare succeeded at mid-century and physicians and the AMA receded from the battle's front lines, the insurance industry assumed a leading role against reform. Extending from the Progressive Era to the Clinton years, One Nation, Uninsured offers a sweeping history of the battles over health care

Ending a career in the auto industry : 30 and out by Melissa A Hardy( )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1980s the news media were filled with reports of soaring unemployment as 'downsizing' and 'srestructuring' became the new buzzwords. Firms managed their workforce reduction by increasing the attractiveness of their pension plans-especially their early-retirement plans. In this volume, the authors examine the U.S. auto industry and present a full-scale analysis of the work and retirement decisions of its workers. They address organizational context and the logic of financial incentives in employer-provided early retirement plans. The impact of pension provisions, layoffs, plant closures, attitudes about 'sgenerational equity', and other factors influencing the workers' evaluation of the optimum time to end their careers in the auto industry are explored
The family in various cultures by Stuart Alfred Queen( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of twelve family systems in twelve cultural and historical settings throughout the world. Different societies in different ages have worked out different ways of handling problems of marriage, child rearing, sex regulation, kinship responsibilities, etc. In this engrosing thoroughly readable book, the cultural heritage of the American family system is traced back through seven different systems, showing a sequence of historical influences. Five other systems those of the Toda, the Hopi, the Baganda, the pre-revolutionary Chinese, and that of the kibbutz-offer a contrast with the American family and portray the wide range of variation in forms of family life

Supervisors and supervision of teachers of the deaf by Philip J Schmitt( Book )

3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Data from 258 supervisors of teachers of the deaf who replied to a self administered questionnaire yielded information on the nature of supervisory programs. Of 108 day supervisors (D), 23% were supervisors only while 77% were also either teachers or administrators. One-third reported three-fourths to full time devoted to supervision; one-third reported one-fourth time or less. Day supervisors were responsible for wider age ranges of children and types of teachers supervised and tended to receive better salaries. Of 150 residential supervisors (R), one-third were supervisors only, 93% worked with teachers of the deaf only, and two-thirds reported three-fourths to full time supervision. Both groups spent similar amounts of time per month with teachers; the majority had master's degrees (D-group 82%, R-group 67%); and degrees in deaf education, audiology, or speech correction were held by one-half of the D-group and one-third of the R-group. Results indicate a need for more supervisors, improvement in the quality of supervision, setting of standards for supervisory personnel, and professional consideration of these problems. (JB)
