Searching for safety by Aaron B Wildavsky( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nuclear power plants, new vaccines and drugs, pesticides designed to improve agricultural production, and a plethora of other technological advances hold great promise of improving the quality of human life, but also pose great risks to human well-being. Protecting ourselves against the risks associated with these modern technologies has emerged as a major public concern throughout the industrialized world. Searching for Safety is unique in its exposition of a theory that explains how and why risk taking makes life safer. It also exposes the high risk in backwardness, whether it is a result of policy or inadvertent. The book covers a wide range, including how the human body, as well as plants, animals, and insects, cope with danger. Wildavsky addresses the master dilemma head on, asking whether piling on safety measures actually improves safety. While he agrees that society should sometimes try to prevent large harms from occurring, he explains why such anticipatory measures are usually inferior to a strategy of resilience -learning from error how to bounce back in better shape. His purpose is to shift the risk debate from passive prevention of harm to active search for safety. Written for the intelligent layman, the book will be of special interest to individuals concerned with risk, technology, health, safety, environmental protection, regulation, and analysis of systems for making decisions

Property and freedom : the constitution, the courts, and land-use regulation by Bernard H Siegan( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past few years, a series of Supreme Court decisions has strengthened the legal protection of private property in the United States by limiting the power of state and local governments to impose zoning ordinances and land-use regulations on property owners. Bernard H. Siegan explores this new direction of the Supreme Court in Property and Freedom: The Constitution, the Courts, and Land-Use Regulation, arguing that this recent jurisprudence implements the objectives of the Framers of the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Fourteenth Amendment

The bloody flag : post-communist nationalism in eastern Europe : spotlight on Romania by Juliana Geran Pilon( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the aftermath of the collapse of Communism, the future of Eastern Europe is uncertain. After decades under totalitarian regimes, the people of the region are struggling to rediscover their cultural past and to establish political arrangements that will help them to achieve peace and prosperity. The resurgence of nationalist sentiments among the newly liberated peoples of Eastern Europe is powerful evidence of their need to reestablish a strong sense of identity. At the same time, it is potentially the greatest obstacle to peace in the region. Juliana Geran Pilon's The Bloody Flag is a study of nationalism's dual nature. In its positive aspect, nationalism can draw people together; it can give them a sense of self-worth, common purpose, and cultural pride. But it can also drive people apart. At a time when the countries of Eastern Europe are experiencing unprecedented unrest and upheaval in the course of their transition to market economies, nationalism has an alarming, destructive potential. There is a real danger, Pilon warns, that the defeated elites of the old order will attempt to harness nationalist energies for their own ends. If they succeed, the world may witness the rise of new authoritarian regimes to replace the old Communist ones. Designed to appeal to a wide audience, Pilon's study combines inquiry into the nature of nationalism with historical illustrations of its influence. Crucial to her work is an examination of post-Ceausescu Romania, where sizeable minority groups increase the potential for destructive nationalist conflict. The best hope for Romanians, and for all the peoples of Eastern Europe, is to embrace the positive aspects of nationalism while rejecting the negative. The political system which can allow them to do that, Pilon argues, is the classical-liberal model defended by such figures as Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek - a model which makes possible the harmonious coexistence of different nationalities by protecting the rights of individuals and leaving them free to pursue their interests
