Smoking policy : law, politics, and culture( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public and governmental attitudes toward tobacco use are dramatically different today when compared to the attitudes of the mid-1960s. Smoking then was widely regarded as a mark of sophistication and a natural companion at work and play. The accumulating evidence on the serious health risks of smoking to both smokers and nonsmokers has changed those sentiments. Now tobacco use is increasingly a target of cultural disapproval - both in social circles and in the regulatory arena. Smoking Policy: Law, Politics, and Culture examines the interplay between public opinion and governmental action as norms have changed about whether one should smoke and where it is appropriate to do so. In this study, an interdisciplinary team from law, public health, communications, political science and sociology addresses a wide range of tobacco control issues. Topics covered include the politics of smoking control, lawsuits by smokers against the tobacco industry, the strategies of employers and insurers in discouraging smoking lessons from drug and alcohol control, the conversion of smoking from a health issue into a moral issue, the enforcement of no smoking rules, and the impact of tobacco advertising controls. This volume provides a comprehensive exploration of both institutional and informal mechanisms regulating tobacco use in late-twentieth century America. The contributors assess the roles played by public officials, corporations and insurers, the scientific, public health and medical communities, and opinion leaders. Smoking Policy is essential reading for policymakers and advocates, professionals in law, public health, and social science fields, corporate officials, and those generally interested in issues of smoking and public health

Scholarships for children by John E Coons( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A specific legal model that would provide educational choice, called the "Scholarship Initiative," is cast in the form of a state constitutional amendment. The Scholarship Initiative provides a basic framework and point of reference for a legislative debate. Existing public and private schools could be converted into "public scholarship" and "private scholarship" schools. New schools could be started and operated as scholarship schools by either public or private organizers. Chapter 1 presents the initiative in legal format. The next four chapters discuss how it is expected to function. Chapter 6 addresses scholarship proposals in the states of Oregon, California, and Pennsylvania that contrast sharply with the Scholarship Initiative. Chapter 7 emphasizes programs actually existing in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), Minneapolis (Minnesota), and Indianapolis (Indiana). Chapter 8 discusses a plan proposed in Kansas City (Kansas), and another introduced in Utah in the form of federal legislation. The proposal closes with a focused plan for children in low-income families. Notes are appended to each chapter. (Mlf)
School sorting and disclosure : disclosure to parents as a school reform strategy( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigated in this study are the school sorting process (how students are matched with schools, courses, and teachers) and the possible positive effects of mandating that schools disclose how this process occurs. After an introduction, chapters 2 and 3 present findings about the sorting practices in seven California school districts. It was found that most schools do not have mechanisms for informing people about school sorting. Examples of materials schools use to inform parents of other matters mandated by school law are contained in chapter 3. Chapter 4 provides a theoretical basis for school disclosure by investigating information disclosure in general. Chapter 5 lists possible virtues of disclosure, including increased parent "take-up" of the choices open to them, prevention of unfair practices, and greater public satisfaction with education. Chapter 6 investigates possible negative effects of school disclosure, including increased costs, increased work for personnel, professional demoralization, and parent confusion from information overload. Chapter 7 presents a policy analysis of school sorting disclosure. Chapter 8 examines the possibility of a due process right to school sorting disclosure. In chapter 9, a statutory analysis of school sorting and disclosure is undertaken. Conclusions and recommendations presented in chapter 10 include the recommendation that social experiments in school sorting disclosure be undertaken on the state level. (Author/JM)

Torts- a wider view by Stephen D Sugarman( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Law students can master existing Tort doctrine from a careful reading of their casebooks. But many would welcome a "wider view." This book helps readers see the forest and not just the trees. Its four parts (and seventeen chapters) present: ideological, political, and historical perspectives on Torts; comparative law insights from other countries; alternative policy solutions to contemporary social problems not well handled by Torts; and explanations of how unduly complex Tort doctrines can be improved by being simplified. This book offers a unique set of supplemental readings for the 1L Torts course or for a seminar on Sugarman on Torts. - publisher

Equal Protection for Non-English-Speaking School Children: Lau V. Nichols by Stephen D Sugarman( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a commentary on Lau V. Nichols, in which the issue is stated as the constitutional right of non-English-speaking children to a meaningful public education. The principal legal argument of the plaintiffs is that the San Francisco school district's "English-only" policy denies them equal protection of the laws by placing non-English-speaking students in an educational environment not designed to educate them. Considerations are offered as to the manner in which various equal protection doctrines may be applied by the Supreme Court in this case. Decisions affecting educational discrimination against blacks are cited, as well as other decisions dealing with educational discrimination and constitutional rights. Consideration is also given to legal theories to which the plaintiff may have recourse. It is concluded that the argument that the English-only policy violates the Civil Rights Act of 1965 may be an alternative to the equal protection approach. The commentary concentrates on these underlying issues and policy considerations: (1) whether non-English-speaking children need judicial help; (2) what the extent and nature of the harm is; (3) reasons for the English-only policy; and (4) whether the problem is judicially manageable. It is noted that in the event of a victory in Lau, problems may arise in the form of efforts to circumvent the ruling or opposition from ethnic groups interested in ethnic culture preservation. (Am)
