In Brown's wake legacies of America's educational landmark by Martha Minow( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""Everyone knows how important the Brown v. Board of Education decision was. But until Martha Minow turned her exceptional mind and imagination to the subject, no one fully appreciated the decisions' reach across our society and across national boundaries. In Brown's Wake is eloquent and careful, scholarly and accessible, passionate and thoughtful. Thanks to Minow, we will now have a far greater appreciation of what may be the most significant and constructive decision in the Supreme Court's history."-E.J. Dionne, author of Why Americans Hate Politics" ""Brown was a landmark case and Martha Minow has written a landmark book about it. No effort to bring the issues raised by that decision up to date can top this one."-Alan Wolfe, Professor of Political Science, Boston College" ""In today's education discussions, Brown v. Board ql. Education is invoked as a vague metaphor for the need to address the racial achievement gap, disconnected from the case's original declaration that separate schools are inherently unequal. Martha Minow's sweeping and provocative narrative brilliantly depicts the many adaptations of Brown, while at the same time anchoring the decision to its fundamental insight about the importance of integrated education in a pluralistic democracy."-Richard D. Kahlenberg, Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation, and author, All Together Now: Creating Middle-Class Schools through. Public School Choice" ""In Brown's Wake is a panoramic view of how this landmark decision has shaped education policy and practice both in the United States and abroad. With an objective eye, Martha Minow leads us through various reform measures designed to promote equal opportunity, skillfully displaying points of contention between integration and segregation, equality and pluralism, sameness and difference. Mining an impressively broad body of social science research, she acknowledges its limitations and the need to find pragmatic and effective solutions to continuing inequalities."-Rosemary Salomone, Kenneth Wang Professor of Law, St. John's University" "What Is The Legacy of Brown v. Board of Education? While it is well known for establishing racial equality as a central commitment of American schools, the case also inspired social movements for equality in education across all lines of difference, including language, gender, disability, immigration status, socio-economic status, religion, and sexual orientation. Yet more than a half century after Brown, American schools are more racially separated than before, and educators, parents, and policy makers still debate whether the ruling requires all-inclusive classrooms in terms of race, gender, disability, and other differences." "In Brown's Wake examines the reverberations of Brown in American schools, including efforts to promote equal opportunities for all kinds of students. School choice, once a strategy for avoiding Brown, has emerged as a tool to promote integration and opportunities, even as charter schools and private school voucher programs enable new forms of self-separation by language, gender, disability, and ethnicity." "Martha Minow, Dean of Harvard Law School, argues that the criteria placed on such initiatives carry serious consequences for both the character of American education and civil society itself. Although the original promise of Brown remains more symbolic than effective, Minow demonstrates the power of its vision in the struggles for equal education regardless of students' social identity, not only in the United States but also in many countries around the world." "Further, she urges renewed commitment to the project of social integration even while acknowledging the complex obstacles that must be overcome. An elegant and concise overview of Brown and its aftermath, In Brown's Wake explores the broad-ranging and often surprising impact of one of the century's most important Supreme Court decisions."--BOOK JACKET

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Violence so often begets violence. Victims respond with revenge only to inspire seemingly endless cycles of retaliation. Conflicts between nations, between ethnic groups, between strangers, and between family members differ in so many ways and yet often s
Between vengeance and forgiveness : facing history after genocide and mass violence by Martha Minow( Book )
18 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With Between Vengeance and Forgiveness, Martha Minow, Harvard law professor and one of our most brilliant and humane legal minds, offers a landmark book on justice and healing after horrific violence. Remembering and forgetting, judging and forgiving, reconciling and avenging, grieving and educatingMinow shows us why each may be necessary, yet painfully inadequate, to individuals and societies living in the wake of past horrors." "She explores the rich and often troubling range of responses to massive, societal-level oppression. She writes of the legacy of war-crime prosecutions, beginning with the Nuremberg trials. She explores whether reparation - such as the monetary awards given to Japanese-Americans for internment during World War II, or art, such as Holocaust memorials - can be a basis for reconciliation after immeasurable personal and cultural loss. Minow also writes with informed, searching prose of the extraordinary drama of truth commissions in Argentina, East Germany, and most notably South Africa, and in the process delves into the risks and requirements involved in hearing from victims, the dynamics of gender, and the value of even imperfect gestures in the midst of these riveting experiments in justice and healing."--Jacket
Law stories ( )
8 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Celebrating "storytelling," books and articles for more than a decade have featured an array of stories, both fiction and nonfiction, reflecting various experiences with law and discussing the role of storytelling in conventional law practice. Still we have relatively few stories of the actual experiences of clients and lawyers in concrete legal contexts. Gary Bellow and Martha Minow in Law Stories have gathered a group of stories that answers this need. Law Stories is a body of narrative work which reflects multiple points of view, textured depictions of conventional practices and institutional cultures, and insights into how the legal workers and those affected by law make their choices, understand their actions, and experience the frustrations and satisfactions they entail. The essays in Law Stories are all first-person accounts of law problems and the way they were handled, written by lawyers involved in the problems

Not only for myself : identity, politics, and the law by Martha Minow( Book )
5 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What rights can individuals claim by virtue of membership in historically oppressed groups? How do these claims conflict with membership in larger communities, such as progressive political movements or the American nation? In her multi-faceted investigation of the thorny legal and social terrain mapped out by these questions, noted scholar Martha Minow offers lawyers and lay readers alike a broader understanding of the legal issues bearing on such incendiary questions as affirmative action, segregation, gay and lesbian rights, racial redistricting, and "identity politics." Not Only for Myself uses well-known incidents, such as the furor over the casting of Miss Saigon and the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to explain the legal concepts behind court decisions affecting all our lives
Government by contract : outsourcing and American democracy ( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Dramatic Growth of Government since the New Deal prompts concern among libertarians and conservatives and also among those who worry about government's costs, efficiency, and quality of service. This concern, combined with rising confidence in private markets, motivates the widespread shift of federal and state government work to private organizations. This shift typically alters only who performs the work, not who pays or is ultimately responsible for it. "Government by contract" now includes military intelligence, environmental monitoring, prison management, and interrogation of terrorism suspects." "Outsourcing government work raises questions of accountability. What role should costs, quality, and democratic oversight play in contracting out government work? What tools do citizens and consumers need to evaluate the effectiveness of government contracts? How can the work be structured for optimal performance as well as compliance with public values?" "Government by Contract explains the phenomenon and scope of government outsourcing and sets an agenda for future research attentive to workforce capacities as well as legal, economic, and political concerns."--BOOK JACKET

Partners, not rivals : privatization and the public good by Martha Minow( Book )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Renowned legal scholar Martha Minow takes on this unexamined change in our public life. She acknowledges that private commercial interests are here to stay and that religious providers have long played crucial roles in health care, social services, and schooling. New arrangements expanding these trends are not necessarily bad - market forces can be useful in improving public services, and the motivation and know-how of religious groups can help many of the most needy. Minow shows us how to guard against the dangers of privatization and preserve essential public values of due process, freedom from discrimination, and democratic participation."--BOOK JACKET

Imagine coexistence : restoring humanity after violent ethnic conflict by Antonia Handler Chayes( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Imagine Coexistence is a groundbreaking program that grew from the joint initiative and conference sponsored by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Harvard University, and the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Imagine Coexistence seeks to enhance prospects for coexistence and break the destructive cycles of intergroup violence. This book, which was named for the program, offers a unique perspective grounded in research and outlines the invaluable lessons learned from numerous war-torn societies. The authors address the common problems that the people of these devastated nations face when the conflict subsides and examines how initiatives in education, the arts, sports, and economic development can offer refugees, returnees, and other survivors of group conflict reasons to work together and can create a base for relating constructively over time." "Imagining Coexistence shows how creating situations for people from previously warring groups to work side by side or in parallel efforts toward common goals can be effective starting points for fostering coexistence. The book is filled with illustrative examples from violent ethnic conflicts such as those that occurred in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda that show the scope of actual efforts undertaken by the Imagine Coexistence projects. The essays included in this volume synthesize and assess the relevant approaches to coexistence and outline the obstacles that often thwart these efforts. The authors also provide concrete examples of how coexistence efforts can be mainstreamed in rebuilding a war-torn society."--Jacket
