Last rights? : assisted suicide and euthanasia debated( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The morality of assisted suicide and euthanasia has become one of the most hotly contested issues of our time. Yet the problem is not new. The major arguments have been wrestled with both in pagan antiquity and throughout the history of the church. From Plato, Augustine, and Aquinas, from Donne and Hume to our present day, all kinds of voices have entered the fray." "This comprehensive anthology of primary sources is the essential reference work for anyone interested in understanding the arguments on both sides. The book examines the moral, theological, medical, and legal perspectives in depth, and each section of essays is accompanied by a helpful introduction guiding readers through the debate."--Jacket
The pursuit of a just social order : policy statements of the U.S. Catholic bishops, 1966-80 by J. Brian Benestad( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a concise and informative survey of what the U.S. Catholic bishops have said about crucial public issues such as world hunger, nuclear armament, military conscription, conscientious objection, multinational corporations, national health insurance, capital punishment, abortion legislation, and public aid to non-public education. The positions of the bishops are presented and the reasoning behind these positions analyzed. The book is organized into three parts. Part 1 discusses "Religion and Politics in the Catholic Tradition" in two chapters: "Addressing the Political Order" and "Political Principles." Part 2 addresses the bishops' statements on policy issues in chapters entitled "Foreign Policy" and "Domestic Policies." Chapters in Part 3 are "An Evaluation of the Bishops' Quest for Justice" and "Evangelization, Catholic Social Teaching, and Political Philosophy." Appendices include a brief summation on how the bishops make policy statements, the texts of two statements on corrections reform and the energy crisis respectively, and a paper on the approach of the National Catholic Welfare Council to political and social reform. Notes, and an index of names and documents, conclude the volume. (Kwl)
No longer exiles : the religious new right in American politics by Michael Cromartie( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial "Religious New Right" formed a crucial part of the Reagan coalition and helped transform the political life of several regions. Though it failed to produce a viable presidential candidate in the 1980s, its power is still very much in evidence. The movement could rightly boast of many platform victories at the 1992 Republican party convention in Houston. In this provocative collection nine distinguished observers give their assessments of what the Religious New Right has achieved and what its potential is for the rest of this decade. Historian George Marsden of Notre Dame, sociologist Robert Wuthnow of Princeton, and political scientists Robert Booth Fowler of the University of Wisconsin and Corwin Smidt of Calvin College ponder its past and future from their varying perspectives. Five other scholars - James L. Guth, Carl F.H. Henry, James Davison Hunter, Grant Wacker, and George Weigel - offer challenging responses, and nine prominent activists and experts add insightful comments

Does big business rule America? : Critical commentaries on Charles E. Lindblom's "Politics and markets" by Robert Hessen( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume pulls together commentaries on Charles E. Lindblom's book entitled "Politics and Markets: The World's Political-Economic Systems" (1977) which expounds the thesis that big business dominates American culture and politics and prevents the introduction of central planning in place of a market-oriented economy. Following an introduction, this collection of essays is organized into two parts. Part 1 contains arguments against the book's thesis in these six essays: "Pluralism Reconsidered" by Eugene Bardach; "An Alarmist View of Corporate Influence" by Royall Brandis; "How Powerful is Business?" By Ithiel de Sola Pool; "Democracy and the Corporation" by James Q. Wilson; "Business, Government, the Public: Who Manipulates Whom?" By Paul J. Halpern; and "The Servility of Business" by Clarence J. Brown. Part 2 contains an essay by David Stockman entitled "How the Market Outwits the Planners" which is a rebuttal of Lindblom's claim that natural resources will be depleted in an economy based on production-for-profit.

The varieties of anti-Americanism : reflex and response by Stephen Haseler( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The phenomenon of anti-Americanism is presented as an assortment of apparently disparate expressions of hostility toward U.S. society which combine to reinforce one another. Chapter 1 discusses what is not anti-Americanism, including: (1) opposition to particular U.S. policies or administration; (2) reassessment by foreign publics and elites of where power lies or is likely to lie in the world; (3) attempts to pressure the United States in order to gain some national advantage; or (4) the enduring desire for independence and self-determination. Chapter 2 examines primitive anti-Americanism. Chapter 3 investigates the demise of communist anti-Americanism. Chapter 4 discusses the ideological assault against the United States. Chapter 5 explores the attack on middle-American values. Chapter 6 investigates the charge of a fascist United States. Chapters 7 and 8 discuss elitism and the idea of American "purity" against the United States. Chapter 9 explores the future of anti-Americanism. Four appendices include excerpts from the writings of Alexis de Tocqueville, Andrew Hacker, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and George F. Kennan. (Rsl)
