Privatization and educational choice by Myron Lieberman( Book )
2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,002 libraries worldwide
This book describes how and why educational choice movements will affect public education. It uses a public-choice approach to argue that both the supporters and opponents of private and school choice have failed to address several critical issues. Following an introductory chapter, chapter 2 is devoted to the rationale for contracting out instructional services, its development in other public services, and its advantages and disadvantages. Chapter 3 focuses on two issues critical to all forms of privatization--comparative costs and the evaluation of outcomes. The fourth chapter examines previous efforts to contract out instruction and issues for making such efforts more effective. Chapter 5 discusses educational vouchers and the broader political and intellectual controversy over whether certain services should be provided through our political or our economic system. Competition issues raised by voucher proposals are discussed in the sixth chapter, and chapter 7 takes up four independent arguments for vouchers. The eighth chapter presents a political analysis of voucher plans and an assessment of their chances for enactment. Chapter 9 discusses whether or not privatization will develop as a cottage industry or as a large-scale enterprise and explores the possibilities of franchising certain kinds of educational services. Proposals for the withdrawal of government support for and provision of education ("load shedding") are analyzed in the 10th chapter, with a focus on home schooling. The final chapter analyzes the ethical and professional issues raised by privatization in education. Seven tables, an index, and notes for each chapter are included. (Lmi)

The book is written in a conversational style with an emphasis on liberal values and the opportunities and freedom that globalization brings to the world's poor."

Fool's errands : America's recent encounters with nation building by Gary Dempsey( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
In the decade following the end of the Cold War the United States undertook several nation-building missions around the globe, most of which have failed. We said we'd bring order to Somalia, but we left chaos. We went to Haiti to restore democracy, but left tyranny. We intervened in Kosovo to create a multiethnic democracy, but we may become embroiled in renewed strife and bloodshed. This extremely timely book cuts through the excuses and uncovers the causes of Washington's pattern of failure

Exiting Iraq : why the U.S. must end the military occupation and renew the war against Al Qaeda : report of a special task force by Cato Institute( Book )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 263 libraries worldwide
Within months of the United States and its coalition partners toppling Saddam Husseins government, the Cato Institute convened a special task force of scholars and policy experts to examine U.S. strategic interests in Iraq and to question the Bush administrations intention to 2stay as long as necessary. 3 The result of their efforts was a book of their analysis that was published near the one-year anniversary of the occupation -- Exiting Iraq. As the war now enters its fourth year, Exiting Iraq remains as clear and incisive as ever, with the added dimension of its being so prophetic in what it saw, predicted, and urgently recommended. In addition to the members (listed below) of the special task force calling for the military occupation to end they showed how the presence of troops in Iraq distracts attention from fighting al-Qaeda and emboldens a new class of terrorists to take up arms against the United States. Moreover, the report underscores how the occupation is enormously costly for American taxpayers, exposes our men and women in uniform to unnecessary risks, and undermines attempts to foster political and economic reform in the region. - Publisher
