  • Theological Foundations for Environmental Ethicsby Jame Schaefer

    Georgetown University Press 2009; US$ 22.50

    Can religion make a positive contribution to preventing further destruction of biological diversity and ecosystems and threats to our earth? Jame Schaefer thinks that it can, and she examines the thought of Christian Church fathers and medieval theologians to reveal and retrieve insights that may speak to our current plight. By reconstructing the teachings... more...

  • A Handbook of Bioethics Termsby James B. Jr. Tubbs

    Georgetown University Press 2009; US$ 21.95

    The term bioethics was first used in the early 1970s by biologists who were concerned about ethical implications of genetic and ecological interventions, but was soon applied to all aspects of biomedical ethics, including health care delivery, research, and public policy. Its literature draws from disciplines as varied as clinical medicine and nursing,... more...

  • Politics in the Parishby Gregory Allen Smith

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 28.95

    For well over a century the Catholic Church has articulated clear positions on many issues of public concern, particularly economics, capital punishment, foreign affairs, sexual morality, and abortion. Yet the fact that some of the Church's positions do not mesh well with the platforms of either of the two major political parties in the U.S. may make... more...

  • Overcoming Our Evilby Aaron Stalnaker

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 49.95

    Can people ever really change? Do they ever become more ethical, and if so, how? Overcoming Our Evil focuses on the way ethical and religious commitments are conceived and nurtured through the methodical practices that Pierre Hadot has called "spiritual exercises." These practices engage thought, imagination, and sensibility, and have a significant... more...

  • Governance in Dark Timesby Camilla Stivers

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 24.95

    With the rush of calamitous events in recent years—the September 11 terror attacks, the Iraq imbroglio, and hurricanes Katrina and Rita—Americans feel themselves to be living in dark times. Trust in one another and in the government is at low ebb. People in public service face profound challenges to the meaning and efficacy of their work.... more...

  • The Rebirth of the Clinicby Daniel P. Sulmasy

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 26.95

    The Rebirth of the Clinic begins with a bold assertion: the doctor-patient relationship is sick. Fortunately, as this engrossing book demonstrates, the damage is not irreparable. Today, patients voice their desires to be seen not just as bodies, but as whole people. Though not willing to give up scientific progress and all it has to offer, they sense... more...

  • From Pews to Polling Placesby J. Matthew Wilson

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 26.95

    Does religion promote political mobilization? Are individuals motivated by their faith to focus on issues of social justice, personal morality, or both? What is the relationship between religious conviction and partisanship? Does religious identity reinforce or undermine other political identifications like race, ethnicity, and class? The answers to... more...

  • The Education Mayorby Kenneth K. Wong; Francis X. Shen; Dorothea Anagnostopoulos; Stacey Rutledge

    Georgetown University Press 2007; US$ 28.95

    In 2002 the No Child Left Behind Act rocked America's schools with new initiatives for results-based accountability. But years before NCLB was signed, a new movement was already under way by mayors to take control of city schools from school boards and integrate the management of public education with the overall governing of the city. The Education... more...

  • Collaborative Public Managementby Robert Agranoff

    Georgetown University Press 2004; US$ 30.95

    Local governments do not stand alone—they find themselves in new relationships not only with state and federal government, but often with a widening spectrum of other public and private organizations as well. The result of this re-forming of local governments calls for new collaborations and managerial responses that occur in addition to governmental... more...
