One nation, uninsured : why the U.S. has no national health insurance by Jill S Quadagno( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,343 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
The color of welfare : how racism undermined the war on poverty by Jill S Quadagno( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is racism that has undermined the War on Poverty declared by Lyndon Johnson, and the country must come to terms with its history of racism if there is to be any hope of accomplishing welfare reform today. American social policy has continually foundered on issues of race. The antipoverty efforts begun by the Johnson administration were never fully realized because they became entwined with the civil rights movement, and triggered a white backlash. The shift of emphasis from all the poor to those disadvantaged by racial and ethnic bias alienated some white working-class Americans. Recognizing the disenchantment of the white middle class, the Nixon administration began to cut back welfare reform. Among the discussions of equal employment opportunity and political influences, the exploration of the politics of motherhood is particularly interesting. By the end of the 1960s, child care policy had also become embroiled in the struggle for racial equality. Day care and aid to families with dependent children became associated with minority issues, to the eventual detriment of such programs. (Contains 31 references.) (Sld)

Different societies in different ages have worked out different ways of handling problems of marriage, child rearing, sex regulation, kinship responsiblities, 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

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

10 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1980s the news media were filled with reports of soaring unemployment as 'downsizing' and `restructuring' 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 `generational equity', and other factors influencing the workers' evaluation of the optimum time to end their careers in the auto industry are explored
