What explains the progress that American women have made since the 1960s? While many point to the feminist movement, this work argues that higher education policies paved the way for women to surpass men as the recipients of bachelor's degrees and helped them move toward full, first-class citizenship.

Als Reaktion auf den zunehmenden Flexibilisierungsdruck setzen Unternehmen vermehrt auf den Einsatz atypischer Beschäftigungsformen wie Teilzeitarbeit, geringfügige Beschäftigung, Leiharbeit und befristete Beschäftigung. Bisher wenig erforscht sind allerdings mögliche versteckte Kosten atypischer Beschäftigung. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird auf der Grundlage der Wert-Erwartungs-Theorie und der Theorie der relativen Deprivation postuliert, dass atypische Beschäftigung negative Wirkungen auf Arbeitszufriedenheit und Organizational Citizenship Behavior (freiwilliges Arbeitsengagement) ausübt. Dafür werden zwei Erklärungsfaktoren angenommen: Eine geringere Integration der atypisch Beschäftigten in die sozialen Netzwerke (Netzwerk-Zentralität) sowie das Empfinden von Benachteiligung gegenüber den Normalbeschäftigten. Zur Überprüfung der Hypothesen wurde eine standardisierte schriftliche Befragung an Pflegekräften eines Universitätsklinikums vorgenommen. Die Ergebnisse zeigen eine negative Wirkung atypischer Beschäftigung (hier: unbefristete Teilzeitbeschäftigung und befristete Vollzeitbeschäftigung) auf Organizational Citizenship Behavior und überraschenderweise eine positive Wirkung auf Arbeitszufriedenheit. Eine intervenierende Wirkung von geringerer Netzwerk-Zentralität und empfundener Benachteiligung (relativer Deprivation) konnte teilweise bestätigt werden.

Since the mid-twentieth century, the United States has seen a striking shift in the gender dynamics of higher educational attainment as women have come to earn college degrees at higher rates than men. Women have also made significant strides in terms of socioeconomic status and political engagement. What explains the progress that American women have made since the 1960s? While many point to the feminist movement as the critical turning point, this book makes the case that women's movement toward first class citizenship has been shaped not only by important societal changes, but also by the actions of lawmakers who used a combination of redistributive and regulatory higher education policies to enhance women's incorporation into their roles as American citizens. Examining the development and impact of the National Defense Education Act of 1958, the Higher Education Act of 1965, and Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, this book argues that higher education policies represent a crucial-though largely overlooked-factor shaping the progress that women have made. By significantly expanding women's access to college, they helped to pave the way for women to surpass men as the recipients of bachelor's degrees, while also empowering them to become more economically independent, socially integrated, politically engaged members of the American citizenry. In addition to helping to bring into greater focus our understanding of how Southern Democrats shaped U.S. social policy development during the mid-twentieth century, this analysis recognizes federal higher education policy as an indispensible component of the American welfare state.

This practical and engaging book provides a coherent approach to global business responsibility and ethics based on the latest research, theory, and practice. The authors incorporate numerous interesting and current real world examples to support the argument that corporations need to - and can - identify and implement processes that foster ethical conduct, ensure basic human rights, protect the natural environment, and enhance social justice wherever businesses operate around the globe. "Global Business Citizenship" combines elements of political theory, stakeholder relationships, business ethics, corporate social performance, accountability and measurement, and organizational change. Its practical approach encompasses "best practices" in stakeholder management, experiments in applying corporate values to local conditions, and social environmental auditing and reporting. Focusing on the strategic alignment and change management process for implementing business citizenship principles and practices, it is an essential supplement for any course concerned with ethics and social responsibility in today's global business climate.

This work looks at Lawrence Grossman's statement in 1991 that America was becoming an 'electronic republic, a democratic system that is vastly increasing the people's day-to-day influence on decisions of state'. It argues that research has indicated that his prediction has, for the most part, failed to come to fruition.
