The assault on reason by Al Gore( Book )
39 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 3,425 libraries worldwide
An analysis of how the politics of fear, secrecy, cronyism, and blind faith has created an environment dangerously hostile to reason. We live in an age when the 30-second television spot is the most powerful force shaping the electorate's thinking, and America is in the hands of an administration less interested than any previous administration in sharing the truth with the citizenry. Of even greater concern is this administration's disinterest in the process by which the truth is ascertained--an open inquiry in which unexpected and even inconvenient facts can lead to unexpected conclusions. Never has there been a worse time for us to lose the capacity to face the reality of our long-term challenges. Gore aims to make us more aware of the forces at work on our own minds, and to lead us to an understanding of what we can do to safeguard our future.--From publisher description

When the treachery hits with the 9/11 attacks, Moore explains how Bush failed to take immediate action to defend the nation
The future : six drivers of global change by Al Gore( Book )
26 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 2,273 libraries worldwide
"The consequential age we are living in will be remembered as one of the great turning points in civilization. Once we turn, though, where will we be? That is the compelling question Al Gore sets out to answer by examining the drivers of global change, connecting the dots among the social, economic, and political forces shaping our present and future. A rising global consciousness is forcing people around the world, but especially Americans, to rethink their basic assumptions about how the world works, and, even more fundamentally, how it should and can work. Borders matter less than ever. Technology is constantly reordering the way we live, think, work, learn, love, pray, and play"--
American Earth : environmental writing since Thoreau ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2,079 libraries worldwide
As America and the world grapple with the consequences of global environmental change, the author, a writer and activist offers this anthology gathering the best and most significant American environmental writing from the last two centuries. "Each advance in environmental practice" in our nation's history, he observes in his introduction, "was preceded by a great book." In this work are the words that made a movement. Classics of the environmental imagination, the essays of Henry David Thoreau, John Muir, and John Burroughs; Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac; Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, are set alongside an emerging activist movement, revealed by newly uncovered reports of pioneering campaigns for conservation, passages from landmark legal opinions and legislation, and searing protest speeches. Throughout, some of America's greatest and most impassioned writers take a turn toward nature, recognizing the fragility of our situation on earth and the urgency of the search for a sustainable way of life. The anthology includes essays on overpopulation, consumerism, energy policy, and the nature of "nature" join ecologists' memoirs and intimate sketches of the habitats of endangered species, as well as a detailed chronology of the environmental movement and American environmental history

From red tape to results : creating a government that works better & costs less : report by National Performance Review (U.S.)( Book )
41 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 1,405 libraries worldwide
This monograph presents results of a 6-month study of the federal government and the Clinton Administration's proposal for a decade-long process of re-inventing the federal government's operations. Each of four major principles are presented in a chapter organized around specific steps towards its implementation. These principles are: cutting red tape, putting customers first, empowering employees to get results, and cutting back to basics. Appendices present recommendations organized by federal agency, a summary of expected savings, and major recommendations affecting governmental systems. The 12 recommendations for the Department of Education are: (1) redesign Chapter 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act; (2) reduce the number of programs the department administers; (3) consolidate the Eisenhower Math and Science Education Program with Chapter 2; (4) consolidate National Security Education Act programs; (5) streamline and improve the Department's grants process; (6) provide incentives for the Department's debt collection service; (7) simplify and strengthen institutional eligibility and certification for participation in federal student aid programs; (8) create a single point of contact for program and grant information; (9) improve employee development opportunities in the Department; (10) eliminate the grantback statutory provision of the General Education Provisions Act; (11) build a professional, mission-driven structure for research; and (12) develop a strategy for technical assistance and information dissemination.

9 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 551 libraries worldwide
When the President asked me in 1993 to lead the reinvention of government, the first thing I did was start talking with front-line federal employees about what was broken and how to fix it. In agency offices and at the National Performance Review (NPR), inspired teams worked day and night through the summer of 1993 generating ideas. They got a lot of help from the best in business, as well as state and local reinventors. When the work was finished, we had 1,200 actions that I recommended to the President. He reviewed them, gave them his endorsement, and made a personal commitment. He said, "Wherever this report says, the President should, ' this President will." Among the 1,200 recommended actions was a set of imaginative proposals to make government work better and cost less by reengineering through information technology. The idea of reengineering through technology is critical. We didn't want to automate the old, worn processes of government. Information technology (IT) was and is the great enabler for reinvention. It allows us to rethink, in fundamental ways, how people work and how we serve customers
