New Release: Heart Of Buddha, Heart Of China, 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

New Release: Heart Of Buddha, Heart Of China

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

James Carter, Professor of History at Saint Joseph’s University and Chief Editor of the journal Twentieth-Century China, has recently published Heart of Buddha, Heart of China: The Life of Tanxu, a Twentieth Century Monk (Oxford University Press). To explore the life and work of this extraordinary individual, Carter embarked on a series of “travels with Tanxu,” spending time in Buddhist temples from Harbin to Hong Kong (with stops in Qingdao, Ningbo, Yingkou, and Shanghai along the way). Here, in an excerpt from the prologue to his book, Carter explains the challenges he encountered in tracing the life of Tanxu ...

The Future Of The Gender Wage Gap In The American Workforce, Molly K. Merrick 2010 Western Kentucky University

The Future Of The Gender Wage Gap In The American Workforce, Molly K. Merrick

Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects

This thesis aims to accomplish four goals. First, to establish the extent to which a gender wage gap exists in the American workforce and why it matters. Second, it seeks to explore the various factors that scholars have advanced as potential explanations for this gap with the aim of identifying a more concrete and all-encompassing root cause of the gender wage gap as it exists today. Third, this thesis will individually evaluate a succession of equal pay legislation which has been enacted to date in order to discern the effectiveness of previous attempts to address this root cause, as well ...

Year In Review: Books, Books, Books

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

As 2010 draws to a close, many media outlets have begun releasing their year-end “best of” lists. We always take a careful look at these to see which China-related titles appear, and have seen more than a few familiar names pop up. At the New York Times, the “100 Notable Books of 2010” include Peter Hessler’sCountry Driving and Yunte Huang’s biography of Charlie Chan, as well as Pearl Buck in China: Journey to The Good Earth by Hilary Spurling. Spurling’s work is also celebrated by Margaret Drabble at The Guardian, while both Pankaj Mishra and AS Byatt ...

The Impact Of Volume And Language On Globalization, Lauren Groeper, Emilie Lee, Andrea Bunting 2010 University of Iowa

The Impact Of Volume And Language On Globalization, Lauren Groeper, Emilie Lee, Andrea Bunting

G. R. Boynton's New Media and Politics

On November 23, 2010 North Korea attacked South Korea, and this attack became a global issue. As news spread about the attack, more people voiced their opinion over Twitter and other communication media such as facebook and MySpace about the event itself and how and if the US should respond. From our results, we compare how the increase in volumes of messages and the number of languages for a recent event (Korean attacks) relates to an ongoing topic (Afghanistan). As our main focus is global communication, the reaction to the recent Korean attacks via Twitter demonstrates how quickly an event ...

Does It Hurt A State To Introduce An Income Tax?, David J. Shakow 2010 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Does It Hurt A State To Introduce An Income Tax?, David J. Shakow

Faculty Scholarship at Penn Law

In an article in the Wall Street Journal, Arthur Laffer argued that, since 1960, the introduction of state income taxes reduced the relative size of a state’s gross state product and its relative per capita personal income. This paper criticizes Laffer’s conclusions on a number of grounds. 1. He uses incorrect figures for per capita income. In fact, relative per capita income rose in a majority of states that introduced an income tax since 1960. 2. The results are not clear when a state’s data is compared to other states in its region, rather than to the ...


Hu Jingcao On Liang Sicheng And Lin Huiyin, 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Hu Jingcao On Liang Sicheng And Lin Huiyin

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

In October, CCTV’s high-definition channel broadcast a new six-hour, eight-episode documentary on the famous husband-and-wife duo Liang Sicheng (梁思成, 1901-1972) and Lin Huiyin (林徽因, 1904-1955). Liang is renowned as a pioneering architectural historian, Lin as a writer, but their presence in China’s historical consciousness defies easy categorization. Both came from prominent families (Sicheng’s father was Liang Qichao, the scholar and reformer of the late Qing and early Republican period) and they left multifaceted legacies (their son, the noted environmentalist Liang Congjie, died in Beijing on October 28; American artist Maya Lin is Huiyin’s niece.)

Titled “Liang ...

And Justice For All: Developing Rule Of Law In The Balkans, Ryan M. Lowry 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

And Justice For All: Developing Rule Of Law In The Balkans, Ryan M. Lowry

Political Science Department -- Theses, Dissertations, and Student Scholarship

The United Nations created the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia to bring to justice those who had committed the worst crimes during the conflicts in the Balkans during the 1990s. From the outset, this institution was envisioned to temporarily process indicted war criminals. The domestic courts in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia were seen as being corrupt and ill equipped to handle such cases; rule of law was absent or severely lacking in these countries. As the Tribunal winds down, however, both international and domestic actors have emphasized the need to strengthen their judicial systems that will create a ...


Pluralism, Relativism, And Liberalism, Matthew J. Moore 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Pluralism, Relativism, And Liberalism, Matthew J. Moore

Matthew Moore

One major focus of recent value-pluralist literature has been the question of what normative consequences follow from pluralism. This essay critically examines three arguments that attempt to show that either liberalism or a bounded modus vivendi is the state of affairs that pluralism makes morally preferable. All three arguments are shown to encounter the same fundamental problem—once we have agreed that values and sets of values are unrankable, any effort to claim that one such set is morally preferable will inevitably contradict value pluralism, either explicitly or implicitly. If this is correct, it seems that pluralism leads to relativism.


Policy Determinants And Medicaid Managed Care, Diane Elizabeth Brandt 2010 University of Missouri-St. Louis

Policy Determinants And Medicaid Managed Care, Diane Elizabeth Brandt

Dissertations

The U.S. Medicaid program is increasingly challenged by reductions in federal entitlement spending, a faltering private sector health insurance base, escalating health care expenditures and an aging and increasingly diverse population. Converging pressures on state Medicaid programs have challenged state policy makers to find new approaches to enhance program efficiency. One of these policy tools is the adoption of Medicaid managed care programs for individuals with chronic illness and disability, particularly important as these enrollees incur the highest health care costs. The increasing prevalence of chronic illness combined with the growth of households in poverty creates significant implications for ...

The China Beat Blog Archive 2008-2012

Mapping International Chaos, Dylan Kissane 2010 CEFAM

Mapping International Chaos, Dylan Kissane

Dylan Kissane

Mapping is inherently a subjective and exclusionary practice as the cartographer decides which elements of the world are included and which can safely be ignored. Similarly, when an international relations theorist describes a new theory it is necessary to define the elements which are essential to understanding the complexities of an international political system, explain why other elements have been excluded and justify why those decisions were made. The subjective nature of theorizing international affairs and the necessary exclusionary practices in which the theorist engages mean that the arguments supporting a new theory of international relations must be rather stronger ...


Revolution In Political Affairs, Dylan Kissane 2010 CEFAM

Revolution In Political Affairs, Dylan Kissane

Dylan Kissane

Extract:

"Recognising the marked impact of the internet on both practical politics and the practices of political scientists, it is not too large a step to paraphrase the US Department of Defence and decree the internet a Revolution in Political Affairs. Akin to its military phrase mate, the internet is effecting all areas of political discourse, exchange and public policy while, at the same time, forcing those who study and theorise politics to change their existing ways of thinking, working and imagining their chosen field..."
