The Trouble With Connecticut, Kenneth J. Long Sep 1996

The Trouble With Connecticut, Kenneth J. Long

New England Journal of Public Policy

The problems of Connecticut, this author believes, parallel those of Nigeria, which are described by Chinua Achebe in The Trouble with Nigeria. Both places may be considered dirty, callous, ostentatious, and dishonest. The causes of these and other defects are also similar: unusually large disparities in living standards, high cost of living, localism, and lack of leadership. In Connecticut, gross inequities in taxation seem to intermingle with and reinforce all these roots of unpleasantness.

The Competent Leasing System: Continued Exploitation Of The Apsáalooke People, Benjamin Graham Apr 1996

The Competent Leasing System: Continued Exploitation Of The Apsáalooke People, Benjamin Graham

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

The Apsaalooke people of southwestern Montana have a special relationship with their homelands. Unwilling to recognize this relationship, non-Indians have continually taken Apsaalooke lands as those lands appeared to have value. Today, white control of Apsaalooke lands continues though the competent leasing system. Though the abuses taking place within this system deserve both ethical and legal scrutiny, competent leasing as a device to wrest control of Apsaalooke lands has been undeniably successful. As with previous land-grabbing practices of the non-Indian, the success of the competent leasing system depends upon widespread social acceptance and support of dominating policies. By relying upon ...

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson Jan 1996

Rising Temperatures: Rising Tides, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Transboundary environmental problems do not distinguish between political boundaries. Global warming is expected to cause thermal expansion of water and melt glaciers. Both are predicted to lead to a rise in sea level. We must enlarge our paradigms to encompass a global reality and reliance upon global participation.

One Question At A Time, Please!, Chris Spruce Jan 1996

One Question At A Time, Please!, Chris Spruce

Maine Policy Review

In the Margaret Chase Smith Essay, Chris Spruce addresses the conundrum of public referenda, championed by many as the most direct form of democracy and criticized by others for creating winners and losers without the traditional give and take of American politics. He reviews the recent history of public referenda in Maine, including the recent clear-cutting initiative. Perhaps we lose more than we gain when we oversimplify complex public issues with inherently conflicting values biases.


Combining Community Service And The Study Of American Public Policy, William Hudson Dec 1995

Combining Community Service And The Study Of American Public Policy, William Hudson

William E. Hudson

This paper reports on one faculty member’s experience introducing a service-learning component into a public policy course. After a brief description of the rationale and procedures associated with introducing the service component, impacts on student attitude and value change and on student learning are analyzed. Administration of a pre- and post-test found no significant impact of the service-learning on student attitudes. This negative result contradicts the perceptions of both the student and that instructor that service-learning enhanced the quality of learning in the course – whatever its impact on attitudes. Both students and instructors found service effective, as shown in ...
