Until proven innocent : political correctness and the shameful injustices of the Duke lacrosse rape case by Stuart Taylor( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The saga of the Duke lacrosse team members' alleged rape of an African-American stripper and the unraveling of the case against them. Covering all five aspects of the case (personal, legal, academic, political, and media), journalist Taylor and historian Johnson argue that law enforcement, a campaigning prosecutor, biased journalists, and left-leaning academics repeatedly refused to pursue the truth while scapegoats were made of these young men, recklessly tarnishing their lives. The story sheds new light on the dangers of rogue prosecutors and police and a cultural tendency toward media-fueled travesties of justice, and has broad political, racial, and cultural relevance to our times.--From publisher description
Congress and the Cold War by Robert David Johnson( Book )

16 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides the first historical interpretation of the congressional response to the entire Cold War. Using a wide variety of sources, including several manuscript collections opened specifically for this study, the book challenges the popular and scholarly image of a weak Cold War Congress, in which the unbalanced relationship between the legislative and executive branches culminated in the escalation of the U.S. commitment in Vietnam, which in turn paved the way for a congressional resurgence best symbolized by the passage of the War Powers Act in 1973"--Jacket
The peace progressives and American foreign relations by Robert David Johnson( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This intensively researched volume covers a previously neglected aspect of American history: the foreign policy perspective of the peace progressives, a bloc of dissenters in the U.S. Senate, between 1913 and 1935. The Peace Progressives and American Foreign Relations is the first full-length work to focus on these senators during the peak of their collective influence. Robert David Johnson shows that in formulating an anti-imperialist policy, the peace progressives advanced the left-wing alternative to the Wilsonian agenda. The experience of World War I, and in particular Wilson's postwar peace settlement, unified the group behind the idea that the United States should play an active world role as the champion of weaker states. Senators Asle Gronna of North Dakota, Robert La Follette and John Blaine of Wisconsin, and William Borah of Idaho, among others, argued that this anti-imperialist vision would reconcile American ideals not only with the country's foreign policy obligations but also with American economic interests. In applying this ideology to both inter-American and European affairs, the peace progressives emerged as the most powerful opposition to the business-oriented internationalism of the decade's Republican administrations, while formulating one of the most comprehensive critiques of American foreign policy ever to emerge from Congress
Dealing with dictators : dilemmas of U.S. diplomacy and intelligence analysis, 1945-1990( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book illustrates the chronic dilemmas inherent in U.S. dealings with dictators under conditions of uncertainty and moral ambiguity. The authors' insights shed new light on critical episodes in U.S. foreign policy and provide a basis for understanding the dilemmas that U.S. decision-makers confronted. The chapters do not focus on whether U.S. leaders made the "right" or "wrong" decisions, but instead seek to deepen our understanding of how uncertainty permeated the process and whether decision-makers and their aides asked the right questions. This approach makes the book invaluable to scholars and students of government and history, and to readers interested in the general subject of how intelligence analysis interacts with policymaking."--Jacket
All the way with LBJ : the 1964 presidential election by Robert David Johnson( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'All the Way with LBJ' mines an extraordinarily rich but underutilized source - the LBJ tapes - to analyze the 1964 presidential campaign and the political culture of the mid-1960s
Ernest Gruening and the American dissenting tradition by Robert David Johnson( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ernest Gruening is perhaps best known for his vehement fight against U.S. military involvement in Vietnam, where he set himself apart by casting one of two votes against the Tonkin Gulf Resolution in 1964. However, as Robert Johnson shows in this political biography, it's Gruening's sixty-year public career in its entirety that provides an opportunity for historians to explore continuity and change in dissenting thought, on both domestic and international affairs, in twentieth-century America. Gruening's outlook on domestic affairs took shape in the intellectual milieu of Progressive-era Boston, where he first devoted attention to foreign affairs in crusades against aggressive U.S. policies toward Haiti and Mexico. In the late 1920s, he was appointed editor of a reform newspaper in Portland, Maine, and moved from there to The Nation. By the early 1930s he had built a national reputation as an expert on Latin American affairs, prompting Franklin Roosevelt to appoint him chief U.S. policymaker for Puerto Rico. In 1939, Roosevelt named Gruening governor of Alaska, where for fourteen years he played a key role in the political development of the territory. In 1958 Alaskan voters elected him to the U.S. Senate, where he articulated a dissenting outlook in inter-American affairs, foreign aid policy, and the relationship between the federal government, the economy, and the issue of monopoly

The campus rape frenzy : the attack on due process at America's universities by Robert David Johnson( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, politicians led by President Obama and prominent senators and governors have teamed with extremists on campus to portray our nation's campuses as awash in a violent crime wave-and to suggest (preposterously) that university leaders, professors, and students are indifferent to female sexual assault victims in their midst. Neither of these claims has any bearing in reality. But they have achieved widespread acceptance, thanks in part to misleading alarums from the Obama Administration and biased media coverage led by the New York Times. The panic about campus rape has helped stimulate-and has been fanned by-ideologically skewed campus sexual assault policies and lawless commands issued by federal bureaucrats to force the nation's all-too-compliant colleges and universities essentially to presume the guilt of accused students. The result has been a widespread disregard of such bedrock American principles as the presumption of innocence and the need for fair play. This book will use hard facts to set the record straight. It will, among other things, explore about two dozen of the many cases since 2010 in which innocent or probably innocent students have been branded as sex criminals and expelled or otherwise punished by their colleges. And it will show why all students-and, eventually, society as a whole-are harmed when our nation's universities abandon pursuit of truth and seek instead to accommodate the passions of the mob"--
Fantastic lies( Visual )

Accurate assignment of ethanol origin in postmortem urine : a case study( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Specimens from fatal aviation accident victims are submitted to the FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute for toxicological analysis. Ethanol analysis is performed on all cases. Care must be taken when interpreting a positive ethanol result due to the potential for postmortem ethanol formation. Recently, our lab developed and validated an analytical method for conclusively determining whether recent antemortem ethanol consumption had occurred. In the current study, this new method was applied to five ethanol-positive aviation fatalities where the origin of the ethanol present could not previously be conclusively determined

OAK-B135 This paper presents the latest status of the DIII-D Real-Time Digital Plasma Control System (PCS). The primary focus will be on the new computing and data acquisition hardware recently incorporated into the PCS and the added features provided by the new hardware. The upgrade of the PCS real-time computing and data acquisition hardware has been in progress for the past three and a half years. Since the initial proposal to migrate off the old VME i860 based system to more modern computing hardware, the PCS has seen a number of changes and improvements occurring in several planned phases. The final phase of the upgrade was successfully completed earlier this year. This phase included the complete removal of the i860 computers and Traq digitizer hardware and the incorporation of high performance Intel PCI based computers fitted with 32 Channel PCI digitizers from D-TACQ corporation. Distinguishing features of the completed PCS upgrade include a custom real-time data acquisition and control solution based on the Linux Intel computing platform and a scaleable multi CPU parallel processing architecture connected by a 2 gigabit per second Myrinet network. Among the many improvements resulting from the upgrade are the higher computing performance (factor 20 over the previous system), connectivity to remote DIII-D diagnostics through Myrinet fiber optic links and plasma diagnostic data displayed in real-time on digital oscilloscopes

OAK-B135 Advanced tokamaks (AT) are distinguished from conventional tokamaks by their high degree of shaping, achievement of profiles optimized for high confinement and stability characteristics, and active stabilization of MHD instabilities to attain high values of normalized beta and confinement. These high performance fusion devices thus require accurate regulation of the plasma boundary, internal profiles, pumping, fueling, and heating, as well as simultaneous and well-coordinated MHD control action to stabilize such instabilities as tearing modes and resistive wall modes. Satisfying the simultaneous demands on control accuracy, reliability, and performance for all of these subsystems requires a high degree of integration in both design and operation of the plasma control system in an advanced tokamak. The present work describes the approach, benefits, and progress made in integrated plasma control with application examples drawn from the DIII-D tokamak. The approach includes construction of plasma and system response models, validation of models against operating experiments, design of integrated controllers which operate in concert with one another as well as with supervisory modules, simulation of control action against off-line and actual machine control platforms, and iteration of the design-test loop to optimize performance
