The new American story by Bill Bradley( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Politics is stuck," writes Bill Bradley, in this insightful, informative, and provocative book about America at a crossroads, but "idealism isn't dead. It can be reawakened." What will it take to make America a better, stronger, truer country' asks the bestselling author, former Knicks star, and onetime presidential candidate. Bill Bradley believes that America is at a teachable moment when we are compelled to reevaluate our political system, our leadership, our agenda as a nation, and ourselves as citizens. With clarity and urgency, Bradley shows why the story we are being told now about who we are as a people is not true. He then offers a new story about our nation, based on America's rich heritage and his belief in the character of the American people. Bradley explores what changes need to be made in our parties, in our politics, and in citizen activism to ensure America's future. He asserts that the American people are ready for the truth and suggests that the party that chooses to embrace this new story will be in power for a generation. Writing from his own experience in politics and drawing on his knowledge of history, Bradley shows how the Republican Party has built a solid pyramid structure since the 1970s, at the base of which are money, ideas, and media, whereas the Democratic Party's structure is an inverted pyramid, with too much emphasis put on the need for a charismatic leader to hold the pyramid up. Each party, for different reasons, fails to deal with the real issues that now confront America. This informed and inspiring call to action is addressed not only to the parties and elected leaders, but to citizens as well. Bradley proposes things every American can do to shape our nation's future. He points out that if eighty percent of the electorate voted, instead of fifty percent, it would be the most important change in American politics since women got the vote. Now more than ever, he says, we need to embrace an "ethic of connectedness," a combination of collective action and individual responsibility, to solve our nation's most pressing problems, and he argues that the fate of all countries is bound together as never before. Writing today with the freedom of a private citizen, Bradley provides this transformative and eye-opening book about the danger and the promise of America's choice at this crucial moment in the nation's history.

We can all do better by Bill Bradley( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation, Bradley argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course. Breaking from the intransigent long-held viewpoints of both political parties, and with careful attention to our nation's history, Bradley passionately lays out his narrative. He offers a no-holds-barred prescription on subjects including job creation, deficit reduction, education, and immigration. While equally critical of the approaches of the Tea Party and Occupy Movements, he champions the power of individual Americans to organize, speak out, bridge divisions, and he calls on the media to assume a more responsible role in our national life. As this call to arms reminds us, we can all--elected officials, private citizens, presidents--do a better job of moving our country forward
The next form of democracy : how expert rule is giving way to shared governance-and why politics will never be the same by Matthew Leighninger( )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beneath the national radar, the relationship between citizens and government is undergoing a dramatic shift. More than ever before, citizens are educated, skeptical, and capable of bringing the decision-making process to a sudden halt. Public officials and other leaders are tired of confrontation and desperate for resources. In order to address persistent challenges like education, race relations, crime prevention, land use planning, and economic development, communities have been forced to find new ways for people and public servants to work together. The stories of civic experiments in this book can show us the realpolitik of deliberative democracy, and illustrate how the evolution of democracy is already reshaping politics
Lead is a silent hazard by Richard M Stapleton( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

You can't see lead, smell it, or taste it, but it's everywhere: in water, food, soil, paint, and many other sources; in rural areas and cities; in the wealthiest neighborhoods and the poorest. Almost 75 percent of all homes in America contain lead paint. The EPA estimates that one of every ten preschoolers suffers from some form of lead poisoning, with results ranging from mild retardation to major brain damage, developmental problems and physical defects. Even low levels of lead exposure among children under six can diminish intelligence and cause behavioral problems. Yet, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. Lead Is a Silent Hazard is your guide to lead-proofing your home and your child's environment. Using real-life stories and interviews with medical and health experts, Richard Stapleton explains how you can avoid or eliminate the many sources of lead your child may encounter. If your child has tested positive, you'll want to read the chapters on treatment and lead abatement immediately. There is also essential data on state-by-state information centers, national hotlines, home lead test kits, and product safety listings

Sacred hoops : spiritual lessons of a hardwood warrior by Phil Jackson( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most successful coaches in NBA history, Phil Jackson provides an inside look at the higher wisdom of teamwork with Sacred Hoops -- Jackson's philosophy of mindful basketball and his life-long quest to bring enlightenment to the competitive world of professional sports. A new paradigm of leadership based on Eastern and Native American principles, Jackson's approach flies in the face of the egoistic, winner-take-all attitude that has changed the face of American sports. Rather than winning through intimidation, Jackson -- who describes himself as a Zen Christian -- stresses awareness, compassion and most of all selfless team play. Filled with stories about Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc and other members of the Bulls
Standing on principle : lessons learned in public life by James J Florio( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"James J. Florio is best known as governor of New Jersey from 1990 to 1994. But his career in local, state, and national government is far more varied, and his achievements as a progressive reformer are more substantial than most realize. This political memoir tells the remarkable story of how Florio, a high school dropout who left to join the Navy as a teenager, went on to become an attorney, a state assemblyman, a congressman, and a governor. A passionate defender of the environment, Florio played a crucial role in the enactment of 1980s-era Superfund laws, which helped to clean up toxic waste sites in New Jersey and around the country. As governor, he fought for the groundbreaking Clean Water Enforcement Act. But his reforms quite literally came at a cost, as he raised New Jersey sales taxes and income taxes to balance the state budget. Florio reflects upon the challenges of meeting the state’s budgetary needs while keeping his tax-averse constituents happy. Standing on Principle reveals a politician who has never been afraid to take a progressive stand—including a firm stance against semiautomatic weapons that led gun lobbyists to bankroll his opponent. His story is sure to inspire readers from New Jersey and across the nation."--
