Drug warriors and their prey : from police power to police state by Richard Lawrence Miller( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Miller not only argues that criminal justice zealots are harming the democracy they are sworn to protect, but that authoritarians unfriendly to democracy are stoking public fear in order to convince citizens to relinquish traditional legal rights. Those are the very rights that thwart implementation of an agenda of social control through government power. Miller contends that an imaginary "drug crisis" has been manufactured by authoritarians in order to mask their war on democracy. He not only examines numerous civil rights sacrificed in the name of drugs, but demonstrates how their loss harms ordinary Americans in their everyday lives
Nazi justiz : law of the Holocaust by Richard Lawrence Miller( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Death camps are the most enduring image of the Holocaust, but they were only the final expression of a destruction process that began in 1933. In that year the Nazi regime mobilized members of an entire society to destroy their neighbors. Lawmakers, judges, attorneys, and the rest of the legal system played a crucial role in reassuring "good Germans" that a war on Jews was legitimate. Using original decrees, court decisions, and first-hand recollections of participants, Nazi Justiz documents how the German legal system transformed itself into a criminal organization. We also see not only how the legal system shaped everyday life, but how good Germans and the business community benefited from the Holocaust. Germany in the 1930s - before the war - is emphasized. Such emphasis demonstrates that a Holocaust can happen in any country sharing the heritage of Western civilization, and warns of the inevitable outcome once ordinary people are targeted in a process of destruction

Anticipated rewards vs. dissonance explanations of interpersonal attraction by Richard Lawrence Miller( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his discussion of interpersonal balance theory Heider postulated that unit relationships induce sentiment relationships. The relationship between anticipated interaction and interpersonal attraction was examined with female high school seniors (n=109) who read a description of a fictitious student and rated that student as someone they would like or dislike. Subjects were told that: (1) they would participate in a dyad to work on problem-solving tasks (work condition) or to discuss various topics (social condition); (2) the student they rated would or would not be their dyad partner; and (3) that student had a history of success or failure at the dyad task. Results showed significant main effects of anticipated interaction and of partners' ability. Subjects responded more favorably to partners with whom they anticipated interaction than to those with whom they did not anticipate interaction. Subjects also responded more favorably to partners with high ability than to partners with low ability. No main effect for type of task (work or social) was found. The findings tend to provide support for Heider's balance theory. (Nrb)
