Trust, Self-Interest, And Representation In Economic Policymaking: Rhode Island Reconsidered, Thomas J. Anton, Darrell M. West Jan 1987

Trust, Self-Interest, And Representation In Economic Policymaking: Rhode Island Reconsidered, Thomas J. Anton, Darrell M. West

New England Journal of Public Policy

Industrial policy has become an increasingly central focus of political debate as American society struggles with new and troubling economic realities. Yet despite the importance of this subject, little is known about how the public gains or processes information on these matters, or about the evaluative standards used to judge industrial-policy proposals. A recent referendum in Rhode Island offered a unique opportunity to study these questions. Citizens participated directly in the debate over new industrial policy by soundly rejecting the Greenhouse Compact, a novel and comprehensive plan to "reindustrialize" Rhode Island. Here we report the results of a public opinion ...


The Paradoxical Relationship: Evangelical Christian Church-State Relations In The Soviet Union, Rhonda Clark Jan 1987

The Paradoxical Relationship: Evangelical Christian Church-State Relations In The Soviet Union, Rhonda Clark

Honors Theses

Throughout the history of the Soviet state, its leaders have dealt with the question of Christian evangelical religion in varying manners utilizing anti-religious propaganda, legislation, and interpretation of this legislation. Dealing with religion in terms of balancing ideology versus practicality has always been a complex question for these leaders. Since the Stalin era, the state has utilized a system of registration to control the church. This registration produced a paradoxical leadership role for those in charge of the registered churches.

In the past thirty years, these recognized leaders of registered groups have been a liaison between church and state, a ...


Business Divestment In South Africa: In Who’S Best Interest?, Paul Lansing, Sarosh Kuruvilla Jan 1987

Business Divestment In South Africa: In Who’S Best Interest?, Paul Lansing, Sarosh Kuruvilla

Articles and Chapters

In recent years, there has been considerable pressure on corporations doing business in South Africa to divest and withdraw from that country. While this moral view espouses withdrawal, this article seeks to provide insight into the practical consequences of divestment. One of the questions addressed is how does foreign divestment affect Black South Africans, those who are supposed to benefit from a divestment policy.

Puerto Rico: Colonialism Revisited, Sherrie Baver Jan 1987

Puerto Rico: Colonialism Revisited, Sherrie Baver

Publications and Research

Because Puerto Rico is not systematically consulted on issues central to its development and because this situation has become so obvious to all island officials during the last decade, elites across the entire Puerto Rican political spectrum felt pressured to ""come out of the colonial closet," tentatively in August 1977 and forthrightly in 1978.3 Every summer since, spokespersons from all political parties have gone before the UN Decolonization Committee to protest the status quo in Puerto Rico. Before 1977, only Puerto Rican Independentistas (who win only a small percentage in island elections), Cuba, and the Soviet Union had labeled ...


Conservatism, Liberalism And Ideology, Chandran Kukathas Jan 1987

Conservatism, Liberalism And Ideology, Chandran Kukathas

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

All societies are more or less complex systems of rules, of symbols andsigns directing and constraining individual behavior. The task of thesocial theorist is to analyze and uncover what order may underlie suchstructures. In this regard he faces at least two major problems. First, hehas to determine how far the rules or norms which govern human action define the distribution of power, responsibility and resources, andso determine the relative value placed upon such goods as education, art and scientific inquiry, and how far the existing structure of distribution of power and resources is itself responsible for the prevalence ofparticular rules ...

Book Review. The New Right V. The Constitution; The Supreme Court And The Decline Of Constitutional Aspiration, Stephen A. Conrad Jan 1987

Book Review. The New Right V. The Constitution; The Supreme Court And The Decline Of Constitutional Aspiration, Stephen A. Conrad

Articles by Maurer Faculty

These two books are much of a piece. Both advocate a libertarian jurisprudence of "Natural Rights"; and the rights in question are, they tell us, determinate and historic. It is primarily this distinctive historicism common to both books that I take as an invitation to consider them as a pair.


The Impact Of Trait Attributions On Evaluations Of Political Leaders, Cathy Widdis Barr Jan 1987

The Impact Of Trait Attributions On Evaluations Of Political Leaders, Cathy Widdis Barr

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

Evaluations of political leaders have long been considered an important component of the vote decision. Nevertheless, little research has been conducted in Canada on voters’ overall evaluations of their political leaders. Indeed, the topic has only recently received much systematic attention in the comparative literature. The study of how voters’ judgements about the personality characteristics of candidates affect their overall evaluations of those candidates is an area that has been particularly neglected. In this thesis, we test three hypotheses about the impact of personality trait attributions on voters’ overall evaluations of Canadian federal party leaders. The data for our analyses ...


Hugo Grotius And The Liberal Tradition, Karen Diane Csajko Jan 1987

Hugo Grotius And The Liberal Tradition, Karen Diane Csajko

Dissertations and Theses

One approach in contemporary international relations theory is the moralist position. Most moralists argue that obligations which an individual has toward the state and toward persons qua fellow citizens should not override the obligations which every individual has toward other persons qua members of humanity. Essential to a moralist approach is the idea that every individual shares some feature, such as rights, which is universal to all men and incontrovertible by any body. Many moralists base their theory upon the thought of Hugo Grotius, equating Grotius ' s thought with their own moralist approach.

This thesis argues that Grotius does not ...


American Foreign Policy : The Utility Of Force As An Influence, Bargaining, Or Coercive Force In The Caribbean Basin, Susan M. Marandas Jan 1987

American Foreign Policy : The Utility Of Force As An Influence, Bargaining, Or Coercive Force In The Caribbean Basin, Susan M. Marandas

Dissertations and Theses

Throughout history states have pursued both cooperative and power-oriented strategies. Moralists and realists have long questioned the appropriateness of using force to gain state objectives. Recent analysts have stressed that states have a moral duty to manage international uncertainty in the best interests of their citizens. While this might involve utilizing both power-seeking and order-seeking strategies, it has been suggested that pursuing order-seeking strategies could help alleviate international uncertainty.

An historical survey, as well as recent case studies in Grenada and Nicaragua, indicate that the United States often has relied upon military strategies in the Caribbean Basin. The United States ...

Review: Bringing In The Sheaves By George Grant, Steven Alan Samson Dec 1986

Review: Bringing In The Sheaves By George Grant, Steven Alan Samson

Steven Alan Samson

Evangelical social scientists have typically sought to breathe life into the old social gospel by professing to operate from a biblical basis while remaining dependent on a secular liberalism that had earlier jettisoned any signs of its clerical origins. But despite their concern with “structural injustice,” they have formulated their recommendations in terms of the same unjust and coercive social structures that rob Peter to pay Paul while picking the pockets of both.
