A way out : America's ghettos and the legacy of racism by Owen M Fiss( )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inner cities, writes Owen Fiss, are structures of subordination. The only way to end the poverty they transmit across generations is to help people move out of them - and into neighborhoods with higher employment rates and decent schools. Based on programs tried successfully in Chicago and elsewhere, Fiss's proposal is for a provocative national policy initiative that would give inner-city residents rent vouchers so they could move to better neighborhoods. This would end at last the informal segregation, by race and income, of our metropolitan regions. Given the government's role in creating and maintaining segregation, Fiss argues, justice demands no less than such sweeping federal action."--Jacket
Can we put an end to sweatshops? by Archon Fung( )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Knowing that information about the conditions of workers around the world can influence what consumers buy and what governments regulate, Dara O'Rourke, Archon Fung, and Charles Sabel argue that making such information widely available is the best way to improve conditions. Although watchdog agencies monitor workplaces and press corporations to raise labor standards, these agencies are not enough; only coordinated action by consumers, monitors, unions, and nongovernmental organizations will threaten profits and force those who own corporations to care about the lives of those who work for them. Activists, scholars, and officials of the International Labor Organization and the World Bank respond to this provocative and hopeful proposal."--Jacket

What workers want by Richard B Freeman( Book )

How would a typical American workplace be structured if the employees could design it? According to the authors of this volume, it would be an organization jointly run by employees and their supervisors, one where disputes between labour and management would be resolved through independent arbitration. Their text, based on an extensive workplace survey, provides an account of employees' attitudes about participation, representation and regulation at work

America's forgotten majority : why the white working class still matters by Ruy A Teixeira( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 927 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the real America, dominated by America's "forgotten majority"--White working-class men and women who make up fifty-five percent of the voting population. In America's Forgotten Majority, Ruy Teixeira and Joel Rogers argue persuasively that this group, and not the oft-quoted "soccer moms and wired workers," will decide the fate of America's commitment to a strong government in the years to come. Using exit interviews, census data and other sources from the last forty years of elections, Teixeira and Rogers argue that the key to reaching these voters is offering programs that will both radically improve their economic situation and remain consistent with their deeply held values, among them fairness, hard work and equal opportunity."--Jacket

Can working families ever win?( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jody Heymann takes on the American belief that creating a better life for your children is simply a matter of working hard. She argues that poor parents don't have a fair chance. Because our nation fails to provide essential supports, it is virtually impossible for these individuals to succeed at work while caring well for their children. Because of the twin demands of work and family that poor parents face, the health and education of their children suffer. These kids often lack adequate preschool childcare or school-age care, which reduces their own potential to succeed." "Heymann shows how intergenerational poverty is perpetuated by outdated labor policies and suggests what must be done to help families. A wide range of thinkers respond."--Jacket
Right turn : the decline of the democrats and the future of American politics by Thomas Ferguson( Book )

Will standards save public education? by Deborah Meier( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Deborah Meier offers a fresh take on standardized tests. While others have criticized standards and what they measure. Meier rejects the very idea of a centralized authority that dictates how and what teachers teach. Standardization, she argues, prevents citizens - including teachers - from emerging as thoughtful, responsible adults, seriously engaged with shaping their own schools, classrooms, and communities. As a result, young people can't learn from them how to be thoughtful, responsible adults and good citizens, the primary goal of public education in a democracy."--Jacket

The new inequality : creating solutions for poor America by Richard B Freeman( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Harvard economist Richard B. Freeman argues that it is now time to stop analyzing the causes and consequences of inequality and concentrate on doing something about it. He also offers real solutions: Raise the income of the working class, reinvest in cities, and reenergize democratic institutions through the encouragement of local citizen organizations." "Responding essays by distinguished scholars and activists - James Tobin, Heidi Hartmann, Michael Piore, Frances Fox Piven, James Heckman, Ernesto Cortes, Jr., and Paul R. Krugman - heed and add depth to Freeman's call."--Jacket
Do Americans shop too much? by Juliet Schor( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juliet Schor breaks a taboo by exposing Americans' shopping habits to moral society. Schor disapproves of unfettered private consumption, not only because we already use up so much, but also because overspending to bolster a sense of self does not lead to happiness. Along with her critique, Schor suggests intriguing ideas for making 'status' goods accessible for all - for example, imposing high taxes on expensive items to subsidize lines of affordable 'luxury' goods. A firestorm of responses follow from economist Robert Frank and others

Reflecting all of us : the case for proportional representation by Robert Richie( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Reflecting All of Us, Robert Richie and Steven Hill listen to what the silent are saying. They argue that we need a new way of electing our representatives to combat voter apathy and the leveling of political views. Such a system already exists in many parts of the world, including places in the U.S.: proportional representation. Leading activists respond in essays that illustrate what our country could look like if all qualified citizens became voters, and if they all felt their votes contributed to more than just the winning or losing tallies."--Jacket
Money and politics : financing our elections democratically by David Donnelly( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond backyard environmentalism by Charles F Sabel( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When we think of environmental action, we draw upon images from the disaster of Love Canal or from A Civil Action - stories of lone activists fighting the government or some corporation against all odds. In their provocative essay, Sabel, Fung, and Karkkainen demonstrate that an effective alternative is emerging. Before environmental disasters occur, citizen groups are collaborating with experts, business leaders, and local and federal governments to figure out what is best for their own neighborhoods. These examples point to more than successful environmental action: they represent a model of grassroots democracy that can be applied to the needs of any community."--Jacket

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
