US Tax Reforms and Corporate Investment in the 1980s: Reality and Rhetoric clearly outlines one of the most confusing and controversial policy issues in the world today - fiscal reform. From the Reagan administration to present times, one of the most vexing policy goals continues to be how to stimulate capital growth without increasing the budget deficit. Policies in the eighties were not successful in accomplishing this difficult task, but there are important lessons to be learned for the future policy makers of the 1990s. Here, evidence is presented not only on the weak connection between the tax cuts and investment growth during this period, but why the predicted investment growth failed to materialize. This book offers a healthy balance between qualitative policy analysis and econometric investigation to provide an in-depth and complete treatment of this crucial policy issue for both social scientists and the demanding public of today.

Intended for teachers of college composition, this history of major and minor developments in the teaching of writing in twentieth-century American colleges employs a taxonomy of theories based on the three epistemological categories (objective, subjective, and transactional) dominating rhetorical theory and practice. The first section of the book provides an overview of the three theories, specifically their assumptions and rhetorics. The main chapters cover the following topics: (1) the nineteenth-century background, on the formation of the English department and the subsequent relationship of rhetoric and poetic; (2) the growth of the discipline (1900-1920), including the formation of the National Council of Teachers of English, the appearance of the major schools of rhetoric, the efficiency movement, graduate education in rhetoric, undergraduate courses and the Great War; (3) the influence of progressive education (1920-1940), including the writing program and current-traditional rhetoric, liberal culture, and expressionistic and social rhetoric; (4) the communication emphasis (1940-1960), including the communications course, the founding of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, literature and composition, linguistics and composition, and the revival of rhetoric; and (5) the renaissance of rhetoric and major rhetorical approaches (1960-1975), including contemporary theories based on the three epistemic categories. A final chapter briefly surveys developments through 1987. (JG)

"The reality and the rhetoric examines the gap between the external reporting of four Australian organisations and their internal management practices and systems necessary to support comprehensive and reliable disclosure. The book finds evidence of a significant rift between the external rhetoric of sustainability and the internal management processes and culture. However, the book also finds that the rhetoric can be effective in driving real change internally, as organisations seek to close the gap between the reality and rhetoric of sustainability reporting"--Back cover.
