The sovereignty revolution by Alan Cranston( )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sovereignty Revolution is the late Senator Alan Cranston's analysis of the problems created by our current conception of sovereignty, "with every nation supreme inside its own borders and acknowledging no master outside them." As such, it is the last testament of a senior statesman with a deep moral commitment to nuclear disarmament. This book makes an impassioned argument that these conceptions of sovereignty, and in turn the role of international institutions, must change before humanity can effectively resolve the world's increasingly global challenges, from international terrorism and the proliferation of nuclear weapons to climate change and poverty. Cranston argues that for humanity to survive the twenty-first century, we must adopt a more encompassing understanding of sovereignty, one that acknowledges the primacy of the individual, while emphasizing the importance of strengthening international law and increasing the authority of multilateral institutions, such as the United Nations. The book includes a foreword by Mikhail Gorbachev, an Introduction by Jonathan Schell, and responsive essays by Jane Goodall and Jonathan Granoff."--Jacket

Providing veterans with service-connected dental problems higher priority at VA clinics could reduce fee-program costs : report to the Honorable Alan Cranston, United States Senate by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GAO was requested to review selected aspects of the Veterans Administration's (VA) dental program. The review showed that fewer veterans with service-connected dental conditions would be referred to private dentists and, as a result, substantial savings would be achieved if VA: (1) established priorities for providing dental care in accordance with the Veterans Health Care Amendments of 1979; (2) insured that care was provided only to veterans eligible for care; and (3) made better use of its dental personnel. The fee-basis was intended to be used only if a veteran was unable to obtain care from a VA facility because of geographical inaccessibility or because of the inability of the VA facility to provide the type of care required. However, VA uses the fee program primarily as a means of expanding its ability to provide routine dental services to inpatients with nonservice-connected dental conditions. By reducing the number of ineligible veterans provided dental services, VA clinics could increase their capacity to treat outpatients with service-connected dental conditions and further reduce fee-basis referrals. In a 1973 report, GAO stated that VA could reduce the number of fee-program referrals by increasing the productivity of VA dental clinics

Assessment of the Navy comparative study of Florida Canyon and Helix Heights for the proposed San Diego naval hospital : report to the Honorable Alan Cranston, United States Senate by United States( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

GAO was requested to assess all aspects of the Navy's November 25, 1980, Comparative Study of Florida Canyon and Helix Heights, potential sites for the proposed new Naval Regional Medical Center, San Diego, California. The former Secretary of the Navy selected Florida Canyon as the preferred site but, after the Comparative Study, several significant events occurred relating primarily to the design and location of the hospital on the Florida Canyon site. Among these events were: (1) the Navy's decision to modify the high-rise medical facility concept and return to a low-rise design that would be more in line with the original planning concepts developed before the earthquake fault in Florida Canyon was discovered; and (2) further testing of the fault showed that more land was available for building on the western upper-segment of the Florida Canyon site than was originally anticipated. GAO believes that the Navy's decision to locate the medical center in Florida canyon is still appropriate. This conclusion is premised on several factors: (1) the Navy's decision to move to the west side of Florida Canyon eliminates or diminishes many significant problems associated with the construction of a high-rise structure on the east side of the canyon; (2) the land assembly process at Helix Heights is still uncertain; (3) the potential flexibility associated with peacetime uses of Building 26 and the Navy's desire to retain it for acute-care use in the event of a contingency makes this site more attractive; and (4) the currently estimated cost premiums at Florida Canyon could be at least partially offset by making maximum peacetime use of Building 26. The conclusion is based on the assumption that environmental considerations raised and the results of pending environmental and land condemnation litigation will not override factors already considered in selecting the medical center site. GAO believes that the Navy's plan to mothball Building 26 for contingency purposes is not the best approach for possible use of the building. Consideration should be given to mothballing the three basement levels and using the rest of the building during peacetime for such activities as light care and the corps school. This would eliminate or defer the need for constructing new light care and corps school facilities
