Public Dispute Mediators profiles 15 of North America’s most experienced public dispute mediators. The practitioners depicted originally worked in many different fields, including nursing, city planning, political science, labor relations, sociology, history, mathematics, environmental studies, and law, but they all have become skilled mediators through a combination of training, apprenticeship, and practice. While the career paths that led them to the same place are quite varied, they share three important values: an interest in the world of public policy, a desire to see people treated fairly, and a commitment to serve their community and the world at large. This book is normally offered for $8, but right now you get it for only $4.
In the Interest of Children provides a compelling introduction to the workings of the legal system and to five crucial areas of contemporary policy concern relating to children: foster care, teenage pregnancy and abortion, school discipline, institutions for the mentally retarded, and the welfare system. By focusing on only five cases, the field research of the author and his nationally-known contributors exposes the often surprising human stories that lie beneath the judicial opinions. The book explores the dilemmas necessarily involved in formulating policies for the benefit of children, and critically analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of litigation as a means of achieving reform. This book is normally offered for $20, but right now you can get it for only $10.
