The new American story by Bill Bradley( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Politics is stuck," writes Bill Bradley, in this insightful, informative, and provocative book about America at a crossroads, but "idealism isn't dead. It can be reawakened." Bradley believes that America is at a teachable moment when we are compelled to reevaluate our political system, our leadership, our agenda as a nation, and ourselves as citizens. He explores what changes need to be made in our parties, in our politics, and in citizen activism to ensure America's future, and suggests that the party that chooses to embrace this will be in power for a generation. Now more than ever, he says, we need to embrace an "ethic of connectedness," a combination of collective action and individual responsibility, to solve our nation's most pressing problems, and he argues that the fate of all countries is bound together as never before.--From publisher description
We can all do better by Bill Bradley( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation, Bradley argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course. Breaking from the intransigent long-held viewpoints of both political parties, and with careful attention to our nation's history, Bradley passionately lays out his narrative. He offers a no-holds-barred prescription on subjects including job creation, deficit reduction, education, and immigration. While equally critical of the approaches of the Tea Party and Occupy Movements, he champions the power of individual Americans to organize, speak out, bridge divisions, and he calls on the media to assume a more responsible role in our national life. As this call to arms reminds us, we can all--elected officials, private citizens, presidents--do a better job of moving our country forward

Lead is a silent hazard by Richard M Stapleton( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
You can't see lead, smell it, or taste it, but it's everywhere: in water, food, soil, paint, and many other sources; in rural areas and cities; in the wealthiest neighborhoods and the poorest. Almost 75 percent of all homes in America contain lead paint. The EPA estimates that one of every ten preschoolers suffers from some form of lead poisoning, with results ranging from mild retardation to major brain damage, developmental problems and physical defects. Even low levels of lead exposure among children under six can diminish intelligence and cause behavioral problems. Yet, lead poisoning is entirely preventable. Lead Is a Silent Hazard is your guide to lead-proofing your home and your child's environment. Using real-life stories and interviews with medical and health experts, Richard Stapleton explains how you can avoid or eliminate the many sources of lead your child may encounter. If your child has tested positive, you'll want to read the chapters on treatment and lead abatement immediately. There is also essential data on state-by-state information centers, national hotlines, home lead test kits, and product safety listings

Time present, time past : a memoir by Bill Bradley( Book )
6 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During his terms in the U.S. Senate, Bill Bradley won a national reputation for thoughtfulness, decency, and a willingness to take controversial positions on issues ranging from tax reform to the rights of Native Americans. All these qualities inform this best-selling memoir, in which Bradley assesses his political career and the experiences that shaped his convictions, and looks beyond them to consider the state of the American union on the eve of the 21st century. Time Present, Time Past offers an intimate portrait of the day-to-day working of the Senate: how legislation gets passed and sometimes thwarted; how money is raised and at what cost. But Bradley also writes about deeper questions: What does it means to be an American in an ago of dwindling opportunities and increasing inequality' How much can we expect from our public servants' What do we owe our fellow citizens' The result is a genuinely revelatory book, informed by intelligence, compassion, and unprecedented candor. "Strikingly reflects the realities of modern politics, what it looks like, feels like, from the inside."--New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Koppel and panel members discuss the nomination and confirmation process of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Various points are made: Washington is more partisan than it was in the past; the nominee is judged, not on the complete record, but on the basis of one allegation, fault, or peccadillo; liberal groups are out to scandalize a process they cannot dominate; the President ignored the advice of certain key senators; civility is the first casualty of partisanship as truth is the first casualty of war. Why were the Anita Hill allegations not pursued earlier in the process? Is race at the heart of the problem?
