High society : how substance abuse ravages America and what to do about it by Joseph A Califano( Book )
9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In High Society, Joseph Califano points out that a child who reaches twenty-one without smoking, using illegal drugs, or abusing alcohol is virtually certain never to do so - and chronicles the fearful cost in personal pain and public dollars of our nationʼs failure to act on this truth. Califano shows how substance abuse is the culprit in violent and property crime, soaring Medicare and Medicaid costs, family breakup, domestic violence, the spread of AIDS, teen pregnancy, poverty, and low productivity. He takes on alcohol and tobacco interests that buy political protection with campaign contributions and seed a culture of substance abuse among our nationʼs children and teens. He explains the importance of parent power, proposes revolutionary changes in prevention, treatment, and criminal justice, and calls upon every individual and institution to confront this plague that has maimed and killed more Americans than all our wars, natural catastrophes, and traffic accidents combined. Includes information on alcohol abuse, alcohol addiction, alcohol industry, binge drinking, amphetamines, children, cigarette advertising, cocaine, college students, depression, ectasy, heroin, lobbying and lobbyists, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine, nicotine, OxyContin, prescription drugs, Ritalin, secondhand (passive) smoke, smoking, teens, tobacco industry, treatment, Valium, Vicodin, women, etc
Radical surgery : what's next for America's health care by Joseph A Califano( Book )
5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Califano urges bold action to save the best of American medicine, nourish its genius, contain its costs, and democratize its miracle cures. He warns that the obsession of the nation's politicians with raising campaign money and their fetish with financing and delivering sick care will continue to push up costs and limit the number of Americans with access to care. Speaking with uncommon candor and lively anecdotes, he shows why successful reform must reshape not just the treatment of illness and injury, but also where the nation invests its research dollars and how much it devotes to prevention

The triumph & tragedy of Lyndon Johnson : the White House years by Joseph A Califano( Book )
9 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From Lyndon Johnson's closest domestic adviser during the White House years comes a book in which "Johnson leaps out of the pages in all his raw and earthy glory" (The New York Times Book Review) that's been called "a joy to read" (Stephen Ambrose, The Washington Post Book World). Califano takes us into the Oval Office as the decisions that irrevocably changed the United States were being crafted to create Johnson's ambitious Great Society. He shows us LBJ's commitment to economic and social revolution, and his willingness to do whatever it took to achieve his goals. Califano uncorks LBJ's legislative genius and reveals the political guile it took to pass the laws in civil rights, poverty, immigration reform, health, education, environmental protection, consumer protection, the arts, and communications. President Lyndon Johnson was bigger than life'and no one who worked for him or was subjected to the "Johnson treatment" ever forgot it. As Johnson's "Deputy President of Domestic Affairs" (The New York Times), Joseph A. Califano's unique relationship with the president greatly enriches our understanding of our thirty-sixth president, whose historical significance continues to be felt throughout every corner of America to this day. A no-holds-barred account of Johnson's presidency, The Triumph and Tragedy of Lyndon Johnson is an intimate portrait of a President whose towering ambition for his country and himself reshaped America'and ultimately led to his decision to withdraw from the political arena in which he fought so hard
