America against the world : how we are different and why we are disliked by Andrew Kohut( Book )
9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,385 libraries worldwide
America's leading nonpartisan pollster shows how we are different and how our exceptionalism feeds the rise in anti-Americanism. The precipitous rise in anti-Americanism is startling. To understand why the world has turned against the United States, the Pew Research Center, under the leadership of Andrew Kohut, has undertaken an unprecedented survey of world opinion more than 91,000 respondents in fifty nations. In America Against the World, Kohut and Bruce Stokes unveil the sobering and surprising findings. America's image is at a low ebb: where once it was considered the champion of democracy, America is now seen as a self-absorbed, militant hyperpower. More than 70 percent of non-Americans say that the world would be improved if America faced a rival military power, and about half the citizens of Lebanon, Jordan, and Morocco think that suicide attacks on Americans in Iraq are justified. Where does this anti-Americanism come from? Kohut and Stokes find that what pushed the world away is American exceptionalism our individualism and our go-it-alone attitude. And it doesn't help that Americans' pervasive religiosity and deep patriotism are often exaggerated by America's critics. Former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright argues in her foreword that we cannot stop the spread of anti-Americanism without truly understanding who we are. America Against the World provides the insight to take that step

Twenty-two dimensions of the population problem by Lester R Brown( Book )
13 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and Spanish and held by 617 libraries worldwide
Twenty-two facets of the world population problem are explored. The topics are economic, social, ecological, and political in nature and generally portray the stresses and strains associated with continued population growth in a world inhabited by four billion people. These aspects of the population problem are discussed: literacy, oceanic fisheries, natural recreation areas, pollution, inflation, environmental illnesses, hunger, housing, climate change, overgrazing, crowding, income, urbanization, deforestation, political conflict, minerals, health services, water, unemployment, endangered species, energy, and individual freedom. The authors conclude that analysis of the implications of population growth based on these indicators suggests strongly that the threat posed by uncontrolled growth deserves more attention from national and international leaders than it is presently getting. A bibliography of selected readings is included. (Author/DB)

Worker participation : productivity and the quality of work life by Bruce Stokes( Book )
9 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 340 libraries worldwide
The world economic situation is beset by growing worker dissatisfaction, slowing economic growth, and rising energy and resource costs. A partial solution to these problems may be worker participation in management and ownership. As production has become more dehumanized and workers have become increasingly dissatisfied and alienated, the quality of their work has suffered. To offset this malaise, various experiments have been conducted to improve the quality of work life and to give workers a voice in management decisionmaking. While workers in the U.S. often use unions to express their views, in other nations they hold seats on boards of directors and have formed work councils for this purpose. Ownership by workers may be either indirect in the form of investment funds and employee stock ownership programs or direct in the form of co-ops. It is difficult to generalize about the economy-wide impact of worker participation because of the lack of controlled experiments and long-term data. However, it appears that participation certainly does not harm productivity and probably improves it. Presently, worker participation is at different stages in countries around the world due to variations in cultural backgrounds and histories. (Elg)
Filling the family planning gap by Bruce Stokes( Book )
10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 332 libraries worldwide
The author provides a global review of family planning techniques and their impact on national birth rates. Sterilization, the pill, and intrauterine devices are the most popular methods of contraception worldwide. Abortion, where it is legal, is also extremely popular. In countries such as the United States where population control is not an urgent concern, there is a need to educate young people about contraception, make devices readily available, and eliminate the social stigma that birth control is an untouchable subject. In developing countries with critical population problems, family planning action is required on several fronts. Decentralized programs have shown greatest success. These programs combine increased supply of devices and motivation in the form of peer reinforcement and educational efforts. When a variety of contraceptives is made available, people seem more willing to participate in family planning because coercion by community or government seems less rigid. The author describes in detail successful programs in China which are the responsiblity of small groups in factories and villages. Tight community bonds are instrumental in their success. Funding needs and agencies for global birth control are discussed, as well as changing attitudes of national governments. (Av)
