  • Health and Human Flourishingby Carol R. Taylor; Roberto Dell'Oro

    Georgetown University Press 2006; US$ 29.95

    What, exactly, does it mean to be human? It is an age-old question, one for which theology, philosophy, science, and medicine have all provided different answers. But though a unified response to the question can no longer be taken for granted, how we answer it frames the wide range of different norms, principles, values, and intuitions that characterize... more...

    After World War II dozens of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) emerged on the global scene, committed to improving the lives of the world's most vulnerable people.

  • Career Diplomacyby Harry W. Kopp; Charles A. Gillespie

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 26.95

    The U.S. Foreign Service is sometimes derided, often underappreciated, occasionally praised, rarely examined, and almost never understood. And yet whether America's diplomacy succeeds or fails depends to a large extent on its foreign service professionals. Career Diplomacy is an insider's guide that examines the foreign service as an institution,... more...

  • Healthy Voices, Unhealthy Silenceby Colleen M. Grogan

    Georgetown University Press 2007; US$ 26.95

    Public silence in policymaking can be deafening.
