Understanding violence against women by Nancy A Crowell( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding Violence Against Women" presents a comprehensive overview of current knowledge and identifies 4 areas with the greatest potential return from a research investment by increasing the understanding of and responding to domestic violence and rape: what interventions are designed to do, whom they are reaching, and how to reach many victims who do not seek help; factors that put people at risk of violence and that precipitate violence, including characteristics of offenders; the scope of domestic violence and sexual assault in America and its consequences to individuals, families, and society, including costs [and] how to structure the study of violence against women to yield more useful knowledge
Women's work, men's work : sex segregation on the job by Barbara F Reskin( Book )

6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even though women have made substantial progress in a number of formerly male occupations, sex segregation in the workplace remains a fact of life. This volume probes pertinent questions: Why has the overall degree of sex segregation remained stable in this century? What informal barriers keep it in place? How do socialization and educational practices affect career choices and hiring patterns? How do family responsibilities affect women's work attitudes? And how effective is legislation in lessening the gap between the sexes? Amply supplemented with tables, figures, and insightful examination of trends and research, this volume is a definitive source for what is known today about sex segregation on the job

Assigning economic value to natural resources( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been a lot of discussion among policymakers, particularly within the Clinton Administration, about how to make U.S. economic indicators, such as GNP, more accurately reflect the state of the environment. This book explores the major issues and controversies involved in incorporating natural resources and the environment into economic accounts. The first section of the volume, based largely on a three-day workshop of experts in the field, explains the possibilities and pitfalls in so-called "green" accounting. This is followed by a selection of nine individually authored papers, including one by Nobel prize winner Robert Solow, that probe scientific aspects of this issues in greater depth

The Transition to democracy : proceedings of a workshop by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most exciting and hopeful trends of the past 15 years has been the worldwide movement away from authoritarian governments. The collapse of the communist regimes in Eastern Europe is only the latest and most dramatic element in a process that began in the mid-1970s and still seems to be gaining momentum in such areas as subsaharan Africa. This book summarizes the presentations and discussions at a workshop for the U.S. Agency for International Development that explored what is known about transitions to democracy in various parts of the world and what the United States can do to support the democratization process."--Website description

Welfare, the family, and reproductive behavior : report of a meeting by National Research Council Staff( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet describes the proceedings of a workshop entitled "Effects of Welfare on Reproductive Behavior and the Family in the US." It summarizes trends in marriage, fertility, and the welfare system, and describes the effects of welfare on marriage, fertility, abortion, and the family. Research and evaluation needs are indicated and justified. The prevailing view among participants was that research does matter with regard to policy, but that it is also necessary to evaluate new program changes. Data and methods need improvement, and too little research has focused on replications, robustness studies, and reconciliation of disparate findings. Research is made more difficult due to the lack of clarity about which Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC) rules prevail in different states at varying times. Matching survey data with welfare rules will be made more difficult as states diverge more under the 1996 AFDC Act. Efforts need to be made to improve the availability of data. Some participants desired more studies of the impact of welfare on children and marriage. One participant's review of 8 large federal programs found that in-kind transfers providing direct benefits to children had clearer and larger impacts than cash transfers or housing. Few studies addressed how the AFDC or proposed alternatives impact on family life. Several participants suggested designing new welfare programs to encourage child support payments. Most research addressed the impact on work-related behavior. There was some consensus that welfare has a positive effect on fertility and a negative effect on marriage, but the magnitude is uncertain. Research has not explained why nonmarital childbearing has increased, while welfare benefits have declined, since the 1980s
