    Can't pay, won't pay : the fight to stop the poll tax

    2020

For the 30th anniversary of the Poll Tax rebellion, Simon Hannah looks back on those tumultuous days of resistance, telling the story of the people that beat the bailiffs, rioted for their rights and defied a government

  2. Distributed democracy : health care governance in Ontario

    Distributed democracy : health care governance in Ontario

    2020
    Summary: "The governance of health care in Ontario has long provided many opportunities for citizens and stakeholders to participate, deliberate and influence health care policy and investment decisions. Yet, despite providing more opportunities for citizen deliberation and influence, this book asks, is the system actually democratic? To answer this question, Distributed Democracy advances an original analytical framework to guide an investigation of democracy and accountability relationships in complex policy making environments. Using an analytical framework in the context of health care governance in Ontario from 2004-2019, this book reveals that the popular criticisms of health care governance in Ontario are misplaced, and in fact, misrepresent other problems: the democratic system of local health care governance is often plagued by severed connections among the various layers of deliberation and policy-making. The lessons for the design of truly democratic governance extend beyond the case of health care in Ontario into the numerous policy realms for which citizen and stakeholder participation and deliberation is increasingly practiced."

    Defense management reform : how to make the Pentagon work better and cost less

    2020
    Summary: "This book addresses why, despite decades of attempted reform, the Pentagon continues to struggle to reduce waste and inefficiency. Peter Levine narrates the history of attempted reforms through three case studies in civilian personnel, acquisition, and financial management in the Department of Defense. The result is a clear understanding of what went wrong in the past and a set of concrete guidelines to plot a better future."

  5. Making an urban public : popular claims to the city in Mexico, 1879-1932

    • Ebog

    Making an urban public : popular claims to the city in Mexico, 1879-1932

    2019
    Summary: Written as a social history of urbanization and popular politics, this book reinserts "the public" and "the city" into current debates about citizenship, urban development, state regulation, and modernity in the turn of the century Mexico. Rooted in thousands of pages of written correspondence between city residents and local authorities, mostly with the city council of Morelia, the rhetoric and arguments of resident and city council dialogues often highlighted a person's or group's contributions to the public good, effectively positioning petitioners as deserving and contributing members of the urban public. Making an Urban Publictells the story of how Morelia's residents--particular those from popular groups and poor circumstances--claimed (and often gained) Making basic rights to the city, including the right to both participate in and benefit from the city's public spaces; its consumer and popular cultures; its modernized infrastructure and services; its rhetorical promises around good government and effective policing; its dense networks of community; and its countless opportunities for negotiating to forward one's agenda, and its urban promise for a better life

  6. The art of occupation : crime and governance in American-controlled Germany, 1944-1949

    • Ebog

    The art of occupation : crime and governance in American-controlled Germany, 1944-1949

    2019
    Summary: "Germany has been divided between seemingly irreconcilable assertions of prolonged criminal chaos and narratives of strict martial rule that precluded crime. The Art of Occupation takes a different view on this history, addressing this divergence through an extensive, interdisciplinary analysis of the interaction between military government and social order. Focusing on the American Zone and using previously unexamined American and Germany military reports, court records, and case files, the book assesses crime rates and the psychology surrounding criminality, and thereby offers the first comprehensive exploration of criminality, policing, and the fears amongst Germans and the Americans associated with conquest and potential resistance, social and societal integrity, national future, and a looming threat from communism in an emergent Cold War. It is therefore the fullest study of crime and governance the five years from the first Allied incursions into Germany from the West in September 1944, through the end of the military occupation in 1949. It is an important contribution to American and German social, military and police histories, and historical criminology."

    Border land, border water : a history of construction on the U.S.-Mexico divide

    2019
    Summary: From the boundary survey of the 1850s to the ever-expanding fences and highway networks of the twenty-first century, Border Land, Border Water examines the history of the construction projects that have shaped the region where the United States and Mexico meet. Tracing the accretion of ports of entry, boundary markers, transportation networks, fences and barriers, surveillance infrastructure, and dams and other river engineering projects, C. J. Alvarez advances a broad chronological narrative that captures the full life cycle of border building. He explains how initial ground-breaking in the nineteenth century transitioned to unbridled faith in the capacity to control the movement of people, goods, and water through the use of physical structures. By the 1960s, however, the built environment of the border began to display increasingly obvious systemic flaws. More often than not, Alvarez shows, federal agencies in both countries responded with more construction--"compensatory building" designed to mitigate unsustainable policies relating to immigration, black markets, and the natural world. Border Land, Border Water reframes our understanding of how the border has come to look and function as it does and is essential to current debates about the future of the US-Mexico divide. -- Dust jacket flap

  10. Food Security in Africa's Secondary cities : no. 1. Mzuzu, Malawi

    • Ebog

    Food Security in Africa's Secondary cities : no. 1. Mzuzu, Malawi

    2018
    Summary: This report marks the first stage of AFSUN's goal of expanding knowledge about urban food systems and experiences of household food insecurity in secondary African cities. It contributes to an understanding of poverty and sustainability in Mzuzu, Malawi, through the lens of household food security. The focus on food as an urban issue not only speaks to the development challenges presented by urbanization, but it also brings a fresh perspective to debates about food security in Malawi. The urban setting highlights the changing food system in Malawi where people in rural and urban areas are increasingly reliant on cash income to buy food. The report's key findings include that the most vulnerable households are those without a formal wage income, households headed by older people, especially older women, and households that are not able to produce food in the rural areas. The research also shows that the food system is dynamic and diverse, with households accessing food from a variety of formal and informal food sources and relying on rural-urban linkages for urban survival. Urban and rural agriculture are important features of the food system, but there is little evidence that these are the "self-help" responses to poverty that advocates for urban agriculture in Africa sometimes imply
