Selling our security : the erosion of America's assets by Martin Tolchin( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to pinpoint, case by case, name by name, how our political leaders have permitted America's vital technological assets to be sold off to foreign-owned companies - how these leaders have failed to grasp that economic innovation and competitiveness are as important to national security as military hardware. The Tolchins show how technologies developed in the United States have been acquired and commercialized by overseas competitors; how one industry after another has radically declined - automobiles, televisions, telephones, semiconductors, machine tools; how we have lost our lead in supercomputers, optoelectronics, and digital imaging. And they detail the cost in lost jobs, lost national income, lost market share, a lower standard of living, a huge trade deficit - and far too much reliance on foreign sources that can at will raise prices or even withhold products. Is a link trainer to simulate the F-16 fighter plane wanted? The American company that makes it has been sold to a Canadian firm. Do we need rarefied gases critical to the manufacture of almost all semiconductor equipment? The only firm that produces them was sold in 1991 to a Japanese manufacturer. During the Gulf War, U.S. diplomats had to go begging for access to advanced technologies that Americans had invented - and then had sold. How has this happened? The authors argue that while other governments have been working with their industries to secure their nations' economic future, ours has ignored global realities. American presidents, the Congress and regulators, believing their own "free market," laissez-faire rhetoric, have defined national security too narrowly as no more than military preparedness. They have ignored their responsibility to secure an industrial base that will allow us to deal from strength. While fully acknowledging that greed and short-sightedness (and offers difficult to refuse) have lured some American executives into mortgaging our future, the Tolchins demonstrate that government ineptitude and political folly bear the final responsibility for our current predicament. Their eagerly anticipated book will have profound repercussions in the political arena

Glass houses : congressional ethics and the politics of venom by Susan J Tolchin( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newt Gingrich, the Ghengis Khan of recent American politics, wrenched the humdrum congressional ethics process out of its lethargy and turned it into an offensive tool for partisan gain. Now, instead of yawning, lawmakers quake at the thought of an ethics inquiry that can easily, often unfairly, tip elections and ruin careers. While members of the House and Senate confront the public's changing attitudes toward money, sex, and power, they are also forced to raise ever-escalating sums to finance their campaigns. Practices tolerated a decade ago now may cost lawmakers their seats or land them in jail. Lawmakers often don't know if they live in Salem or Gomorrah. Using new information culled from dozens of Capitol Hill interviews, Sue and Marty Tolchin show how ethics in Washington have changed over two centuries while offering new interpretations of past ethics cases. The first book to analyze the politicization of the ethics process, Glass Houses reveals in wicked and telling detail the forces that drive the modern lawmaker into a maelstrom of fierce corruption battles

Program #887 : "Title: Of Power, Politics and Patronage. Patronage is a time-honored practice in American politics and one which the modern media rarely recognizes as a major legislative force.

This has always been true. But styles in political patronage have changed since the dawn of the republic and today we are witnessing 'Pinstripe patronage'. Authors Martin and Susan Tolchin explain the expression and its implications

The results of this case study found that Kingdon's policy window better explains the agenda-setting process than Weaver & Rockman's political institution in that three factors & mdash;problem recognition, availability of alternatives, and the political stability & mdash;were engaged in the process of moving the problems and alternatives onto the legislative agenda. The key participants that engaged in the agenda-setting process were individuals and institutions. While the individual participants were important in helping to set the agenda and generate alternatives, a set of institutions affected the agenda formation through the decision-making process, enhancing the government capability to perform policy innovation

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is about the surge of anger that has swept the world in the last decade, its myriad causes, its toll in lives and human misery, and what can be done to halt, and even reverse, this cacophony of hate. [The book] seeks to explore the roots of this rage and why it seems to have reached a fever pitch. [It] focuses on the negative effects of global anger and on how that anger has changed the world's political landscape, often for the worse. It also discusses how some politicians foment and manipulate that anger, and how responsible leaders can overcome past patterns of conflict that seem inexorable. This book also discusses the affection of anti-Semitism, the oldest of ethnic and religious hatreds, with roots in both the Old and New Testaments.-Pref
