  • African American Bioethicsby Lawrence J. Jr. Prograis; Edmund D. Pellegrino

    Georgetown University Press 2007; US$ 27.95

Prograis Jr. and Edmund D. Pellegrino... more...

  • Ten Thousand Democraciesby Michael B. Berkman; Eric Plutzer

    Georgetown University Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    The essence of democracy is popular sovereignty. The people rule. In the United States, citizens exercise this right through elected officials who they believe will best represent their own values and interests. But are those interests and values always being followed? Authors Michael B. Berkman and Eric Plutzer provide the first systematic examination... more...

  • Power and the Pastby Eric Langenbacher; Yossi Shain

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 31.95

    Only recently have international relations scholars started to seriously examine the influence of collective memory on foreign policy formation and relations between states and peoples. The ways in which the memories of past events are interpreted, misinterpreted, or even manipulated in public discourse create the context that shapes international... more...

  • Faith, Hope, and Jobsby Stephen V. Monsma

    Georgetown University Press 2006; US$ 22.95

    A front-burner issue on the public policy agenda today is the increased use of partnerships between government and nongovernmental entities, including faith-based social service organizations. In the wake of President Bush's faith-based initiative, many are still wondering about the effectiveness of these faith-based organizations in providing services... more...

  • Faith and Forceby David L. Clough; Brian Stiltner

    Georgetown University Press 2007; US$ 29.95

    This book began in an argument between friends surprised to find themselves on opposite sides of the debate about whether the United States and the United Kingdom should invade Iraq in 2003. Situated on opposite sides of the Atlantic, in different churches, and on different sides of the just war/pacifist fence, we exchanged long emails that rehearsed... more...

  • City-County Consolidationby Suzanne M. Leland; Kurt Thurmaier

    Georgetown University Press 2010; US$ 34.95

    Although a frequently discussed reform, campaigns to merge a major municipality and county to form a unified government fail to win voter approval eighty per cent of the time. One cause for the low success rate may be that little systematic analysis of consolidated governments has been done. In CityûCounty Consolidation, Suzanne Leland and Kurt... more...

  • Artificial Nutrition and Hydration and the Permanently Unconscious Patientby Ronald P. Hamel; James J. Walter

    Georgetown University Press 2007; US$ 31.95

    During the past few decades, high-profile cases like that of Terry Schiavo have fueled the public debate over forgoing or withdrawing artificial nutrition and hydration from patients in a persistent vegetative state (PVS). These cases, whether involving adults or young children, have forced many to begin thinking in a measured and careful way about... more...

  • Strategic Advantageby Bruce Berkowitz

    Georgetown University Press 2008; US$ 24.95

    By almost any measure, the United States is the most powerful nation in the history of civilization. Our resources are immense. But they are not limitless. Today national security requires agility to stay a step ahead of threats that can rapidly appear and change, and endurance to deal with challengers that are unlikely to disappear anytime soon.... more...

  • Lessons of Disasterby Thomas A. Birkland

    Georgetown University Press 2006; US$ 27.95

    Even before the wreckage of a disaster is cleared, one question is foremost in the minds of the public: "What can be done to prevent this from happening again?"
