Philanthropic foundations and public policy : the political role of foundations by Mary Anna Culleton Colwell( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research demonstrates that philanthropic foundations influence public policy through the nonprofit organizations they support and, increasingly, through programs they initiate and develop. This political role of tax exempt foundations has been essentially ignored, unknown, or not assessed in the usual analysis of public policy formation
Peddlers of crisis : the committee on the present danger and the legitimation of containment militarism in the Korean War and post-Vietnam periods by Jerry Wayne Sanders( )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation chronicles the activities of two prominent elite groups -- each named the Committee On The Present Danger (CPD) -- which proved important in shaping policy and opinion in their time, interstitial periods of the Cold War marked by profound transformation in the world order as well as in American domestic politics. The first CPD launched a mass campaign in 1950, warning the American public of an imminent Soviet threat which demanded in response a major military rearmament by the U.S. and its allies, as well as a reassertion of military force in the conduct of foreign policy. The second CPD emerged in 1976, under essentially the same banner, in opposition to?tente. The outcome in the Korean War era was a vast military buildup set in motion to back an expansionist foreign policy; in the post-Vietnam period, America returned to a Cold War footing after the brief interregnum of?tente

Transnational linkages, social capital and sustainable livelihood security organic agriculture in Baja, California by Christina Margaret Getz( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examines the effects of participation in transnational markets for agricultural products on small producers in the countries of the global south. Bringing to bear ideas from the literatures on global commodity chains, contract farming, cooperatives, organic agriculture, social capital and sustainable development, it examines how markets are socially and politically constructed and how social and cultural structures mediate both the evolution of markets themselves and their effects on producer communities. It concludes that communities of small producers can benefit from participation in transnational markets, but that the construction of both transnational market relations and local community ties that will enable such beneficial results is a difficult and uncertain process, whose success depends on a conjuncture of circumstances that is highly unusual in the contemporary world. The analysis is based on research on seven communities of small-scale agricultural producers in Baja California, Mexico that are linked to markets for vegetables in the United States through a variety of transnational marketing arrangements. Drawing on in-depth interviews, participant observation and archival research, I generate a number of hypotheses about the confluence of conditions needed for peasant communities to achieve sustainable development outcomes via participation in transnational commodity chains. Based on my examination of variation among these communities, both cross-sectionally and longitudinally, I argue that "sustainable livelihood security"--by which I mean ecologically sustainable production that neither exposes local producers to unacceptable levels of economic risk nor results in socially destructive increases in levels of local inequality--can be achieved through integration into "re-embedded" transnational commodity chains, which have two critical components -- embeddedness between nodes of the commodity chain, what I call bufferedness, and embeddedness at the community level, what I call community-level social capital. The analysis shows concretely both the possibilities and difficulties of constructing this combination of market and community structures

Divergent worlds of work crafting the global casino in the US and South Africa by Jeffrey J Sallaz( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation, a comparative ethnography of the casino industries of Nevada, USA and Gauteng, South Africa, addresses three questions. Why is there occurring a worldwide wave of casino legalizations? How does the political process of legitimating gambling as a benign economic "good" affect the worldview of casino managers? How do workers negotiate labor in the global casino?
