Open moral communities by Seymour J Mandelbaum( )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,921 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seymour Mandelbaum's extended reflection on communities and the myths that sustain them is a plea for a communitarian sensibility. Communities are critically important in maintaining and adapting public moral orders. To do so, they must recruit, socialize, and discipline members; distinguish between members and strangers; collect resources; and cultivate a domain of competence." "The communitarian sensibility is a disposition to assess the impact of innovative opportunities and compelling moral claims on the design, repair, and dissolution of communities and communal fields with a healthy skepticism about unlikely strategies."--Jacket

17 editions published between 1965 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The social setting of intolerance: the Know-Nothings, the Red scare, and McCarthyism by Seymour J Mandelbaum( Book )

7 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores three moments of fear in American history, moments when the genial mask of tolerance was cast aside ... The first deals with intolerance during the 1850's, when members of the secret Know Nothing society charged that foreigners were corrupting America. Their attacks were directed especially against Irish Catholic immigrants ... Unit Two considers the Red Scare of 1919-1920 and Unit Three deals with the period after World War II, when the term 'McCarthyism' was coined to define an intense search for disloyal citizens and government officials. In presenting each of the three units, this book analyzes the social setting of intolerance--that is, the conditions that led to the fear that America was in danger of subversion from within."--Author's introduction
Explorations in planning theory by Luigi Mazza( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is this thing called planning? What is its domain? What do planners do? How do they talk? What are the limits and possibilities for planning imposed by power, politics, knowledge, technology, interpretation, ethics, institutional design? In this comprehensive volume, the foremost voices in planning explore the foundational ideas and issues of the profession. This is not a book of bland abstract theorizing but an extended inquiry into the practice of the profession. As Mandelbaum notes in the Introduction, "the shared framework of these essays captures a pervasive interest in the behavior, values, character, and experience of professional planners at work." This landmark text defines the field for today's planners and the next generation
Community and communications by Seymour J Mandelbaum( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An argument is posited for dealing with urban dilemmas through the perspective of interpersonal communications. In response to the contemporary revolution in communications technology, the concept of the community is redefined to encompass all the people with whom an individual communicates, regardless of geographic location. Social and political issues are examined in the context of involved parties talking effectively to each other about salient issues. More efficiently organized channels of communication are required. More information must be disseminated to people for storage and retrieval, and they in turn must be provided with avenues of expression. The book discusses the technological possibility of a total communications system for America as a means of coping with pressing social issues. (Ee)
The network society : a new context for planning? by L Albrechts( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a clear and rewarding style, Albrechts and Mandelbaum consider the challenges that the new paradigm of the Network Society creates for Urban and Regional Planning. Chapters grouped into five themes discuss theoretical and practical perspectives on the contemporary organization of social, economic, cultural, political and physical spaces. These sections are: models of the Network Society; the impact of physical networks such as transport; challenges for Planners raised by society's increased reliance on new technology; an examination of local networks including community networks and the possibilities of setting up local networks for disaster recovery; and a comparison of spatial and policy networks and an exploration of the institutions involved. This book is essential reading for graduate level courses in urban studies, city and regional planning, and urban design. With its clear structure unitary sections but a diversity of perspectives the book can be used easily in courses such as Planning Theory, Urban Infrastructure and Public Policy."--Publisher's website
