Tailspin : the people and forces behind America's fifty-year fall--and those fighting to reverse it by Steven Brill( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Steven Brill examines how and why major American institutions no longer serve us as they should, causing a deep rift between the vulnerable majority and the protected few. Covering the years 1967 to 2017, Brill shows us how America's core values -- meritocracy, innovation, due process, free speech, and even democracy itself -- have somehow managed to power its decline into dysfunction. They have isolated our best and brightest, whose positions at the top have never been more secure or more remote. The result has been an erosion of responsibility and accountability, an epidemic of shortsightedness, an increasingly hollow economic and political center, and millions of Americans gripped by apathy and hopelessness. By examining the people and forces behind the rise of big-money lobbying, legal and financial engineering, the demise of private-sector unions, and a hamstrung bureaucracy, Brill answers the question on everyone's mind: How did we end up this way? Finally, he introduces us to those working quietly and effectively to repair the damages

Firearm abuse : a research and policy report by Steven Brill( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analysis of statistics from Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington (DC) to study trends in firearm abuse as a first step toward developing policy alternatives. This study represents the first sustained effort to examine, from the police perspective, the problem of firearm abuse by using police records. Some intriguing information has been developed. For example, a significant finding emerges from an examination of samples of firearms confiscated in ten cities. Data show the frequency with which higher-priced, well-known brands of handguns appear in the samples of firearms believed to be involved in murder, robbery, assault and other felonies. This evidence clearly indicates that the belief that so-called Saturday night specials (inexpensive handguns) are used to commit the great majority of these felonies is misleading and counterproductive and can confuse the police administrator in confronting the problem of firearm abuse. The variations in firearm confiscation rates among the ten cities studied in this report suggest that police policy and procedures in these cities should be studied further so that police efforts to confiscate illegally possessed firearms can be improved
After : the rebuilding and defending of America in the September 12 era by Steven Brill( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story begins on September 12, 2001. It reads like a novel. But the characters in award-winning journalist Steven Brill's America are real. They don't have all the answers or all the virtues of fictional heroes." "It is because they are so human - so much like the rest of us - that makes the way they rise to the challenge of September 12 such an inspiring story about how America really works." "A Customs inspector somehow has to guard against a nuclear bomb that could be hidden in one of the thousands of cargo containers from all over the world sitting on his dock in New York harbor." "A young woman in New Jersey, suddenly widowed with three young children, doesn't know how to get the keys to her husband's car, much less how she can challenge the head of a federal victims' fund." "An entrepreneur in Silicon Valley, who makes machines that screen luggage for bombs, can't decide if this crisis is an opportunity he should seize." "Attorney General John Ashcroft has no idea how to find the new, hidden enemy living among us." "The young, just-hired director of the American Civil Liberties Union wonders how he can keep Ashcroft from going too far." "The CEO of a giant insurer has to decide whether to risk economic panic by not paying damage claims that he might legally be able to avoid." "Red Cross President Bernadine Healy has to figure out how to collect and allocate donations while dodging a hostile board of directors." "Career civil servant Gale Rossides has to recruit and train the largest workforce ever hired by the government - the new airport passenger screeners." "A proprietor of a shoe repair shop - helped by two young women, pro bono lawyers - has to rebuild a business buried in the rubble of Ground Zero." "A Detroit Border Patrol agent - whose bosses want in fire him for speaking out about how unprotected his stretch of border is - has to choose whether to risk his family's livelihood by sounding the alarm." "Tom Ridge has to run through a bureaucratic wall to mount a true homeland security defense." "Drawing on 347 on-the-record interviews and revelations from memos of government meetings, court filings, and other documents. Brill gives us a front-row seat as these and other players in this real-life drama cross paths in a series of alliances and confrontations and fight for their own interests and their version of the public interest."--BOOK JACKET

Tailspin the people and forces behind America's fifty-year fall--and those fighting to reverse it by Steven Brill( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the award-winning journalist and best-selling author of America's Bitter Pill: a tour de force examination of 1) how and why major American institutions no longer serve us as they should, causing a deep rift between the vulnerable majority and the protected few, and 2) how some individuals and organizations are laying the foundation for real, lasting change.In this revelatory narrative covering the years 1967 to 2017, Steven Brill gives us a stunningly cogent picture of the broken system at the heart of our society. He shows us how, over the last half-century, America's core values--meritocracy, innovation, due process, free speech, and even democracy itself--have somehow managed to power its decline into dysfunction. They have isolated our best and brightest, whose positions at the top have never been more secure or more remote. The result has been an erosion of responsibility and accountability, an epidemic of shortsightedness, an increasingly hollow economic and political center, and millions of Americans gripped by apathy and hopelessness. By examining the people and forces behind the rise of big-money lobbying, legal and financial engineering, the demise of private-sector unions, and a hamstrung bureaucracy, Brill answers the question on everyone's mind: How did we end up this way? Finally, he introduces us to those working quietly and effectively to repair the damages. At once a diagnosis of our national ills, a history of their development, and a prescription for a brighter future, Tailspin is a work of riveting journalism--and a welcome antidote to political despair
