Good Judgment In Foreign Policy

At the heart of political leadership lies choice. And at the heart of choice lies judgment. A leader's psychology and experience intersect with political realities to produce consequences that can make or break a leader—or a country. Nowhere is judgment more important than in the making of foreign policy. Good judgments can avoid wars, or win them. Poor judgments can start wars or lose them. This book draws together a distinguished group of contributors—psychologists, political scientists, and policymakers—to focus on and understand both good and poor judgment in foreign policy making. Case studies of key leadership decisions combine with theoretical overviews and analyses to offer a highly textured portrait of judgment in action in the all-important foreign policy arena. An up-to-the-minute case on George W. Bush and the war on terrorism applies good judgment theory to contemporary events.

Dealing With Differences

Conflict and dispute pervade political and policy discussions. Moreover, unequal power relations tend to heighten levels of conflict. In this context of contention, figuring out ways to accommodate others and reach solutions that are agreeable to all is a perennial challenge for activists, politicians, planners, and policymakers. John Forester is one of America's eminent scholars of progressive planning and dispute resolution in the policy arena, and in Dealing with Differences he focuses on a series of 'hard cases'--conflicts that appeared to be insoluble yet which were resolved in the end. Forester ranges across the country--from Hawaii to Maryland to Washington State--and across issues--the environment, ethnic conflict, and HIV. Throughout, he focuses on how innovative mediators settled seemingly intractable disputes. Between pessimism masquerading as 'realism' and the unrealistic idealism that 'we can all get along,' Forester identifies the middle terrain where disputes do actually get resolved in ways that offer something for all sides. Dealing with Differences serves as an authoritative and fundamentally pragmatic pathway for anyone who has to engage in the highly contentious worlds of planning and policymaking.

Yes God Really Is Up There

Yes, God Really Is 'Up There ' provides answers for many of life's questions. It has been written by a man whose earliest childhood memory is of shivering in the winter cold while trying to sleep on a bale of hay in a drafty barn somewhere in war-torn (WWII) Europe. His Mother was doing her best to comfort him, all the while listening to the bombers roaring over-head, and wondering what had happened to her husband, the boy's Father. It later came to light that he had been captured by Russian soldiers, and was bound for the labor camps of Siberia. How the Father escaped, found his wife and child, and once reunited, they came to the United States, is a story for another day. Suffice it to say that, bringing only their clothes and old pots and pans, upon arrival they began to live the American Dream. (For more, read About The Author at the end of the book.) The American Dream abounds with opportunities and obstacles for the native-born and immigrant alike; the author has been no exception - he encountered both. Amidst the victories and defeats, he came to realize that God Almighty really was and is up there, ever vigilant and always looking out for him. That very God can do the same for you. If you're not sure that God really is up there, or you are going through tough times, you need to read this book.

This book is a research project listing many of the troubling events found in the Bible. I don't think anyone else has found and compiled as thorough a list of "toil and trouble" as I have from the Bible. It also contains 98 Engravings by Gustave Dore selected for their graphic depiction of many of the stories and events presented in the book. I was surprised at how many of his Biblical engravings reflected the "doom and gloom" of the Bible.

The phone call that interrupts presidential advisor Sarah Tyler's meeting with White House Cabinet members is supposed to bring joyous news: the birth of her grandchildren. Instead, it reports a tragic event that takes her to Texas to bury her daughter and the twins she was about to deliver. Two days after the funeral, a traffic accident puts Sarah in the hospital with life-threatening injuries. The resulting medical malpractice case pits a flamboyant young personal injury trial lawyer against a successful, and established, defense attorney. Former all-American basketball player Rob Vargas-handsome, charismatic, and brash-represents the plaintiffs. His opponent is Harvard-educated Talmadge Harrison-patrician, urbane, and brilliant. It's a highly charged case, and it's being tried before a biased judge determined to influence the jury and the outcome. Sparks fly from the beginning, and continue throughout the trial, as the attorneys battle to explain the deaths of Sarah's daughter and her babies and to assign the blame. But could something other than medical malpractice have been involved in the events that changed Sarah Tyler's life so drastically-something far more complex and frightening?

Subsequent sections present significant recent papers by prominent researchers, organized to reveal the currents, connections, and controversies that animate the field.

Finally, a section on "controversies" presents problem representation, domain knowledge, content specificity, rule-governed versus rule-described behavior, and proposals for radical departures and new beginnings in the field. Students and researchers in psychology who have an interest in cognitive processes will find this text to be rewarding reading.

Catholic high schools in the United States have been undergoing three major changes: the shift to primarily lay leadership and teachers; the transition to a more consumerist and pluralist culture; and the increasing diversity of students attending Catholic high schools. James Heft argues that to navigate these changes successfully, leaders of Catholic education need to inform lay teachers more thoroughly, conduct a more profound social analysis of the culture, and address the real needs of students. After presenting the history of Catholic schools in the United States and describing the major legal decisions that have influenced their evolution, Heft describes the distinctive and compelling mission of a Catholic high school. Two chapters are devoted to leadership, and other chapters to teachers, students, alternative models of high schools, financing, and the key role of parents, who today may be described as ''post-deferential'' to traditional authorities, including bishops and priests. Written by an award-winning teacher, scholar, and recognized educational leader in Catholic education, Catholic High Schools should be read by everyone interested in religiously- affiliated educational institutions, particularly Catholic education.

When we share or receive good or bad news, from ordinary events such as the birth of a child to public catastrophes such as 9/11, our "old" lives come to an end, and suddenly we enter a new world. In Bad News, Good News, Douglas W. Maynard explores how we tell and hear such news, and what's similar and different about our social experiences when the tidings are bad rather than good or vice versa. Uncovering vocal and nonvocal patterns in everyday conversations, clinics, and other organizations, Maynard shows practices by which people give and receive good or bad news, how they come to realize the news and their new world, how they suppress or express their emotions, and how they construct social relationships through the sharing of news. He also reveals the implications of his study for understanding public affairs in which transmitting news may influence society at large, and he provides recommendations for professionals and others on how to deliver bad or good tidings more effectively. For anyone who wants to understand the interactional facets of news delivery and receipt and their social implications, Bad News, Good News offers a wealth of scholarly insights and practical advice.
