Dilemmas of American Policy; Crucial Issues in Contemporary Society.
Cook, Samuel DuBois; And Others
This volume contains four papers dealing with key social issues confronting American society; racial conflict; education (especially concerning national policies and goals); rationale for limited war for a nonmilitaristic nation; and the generation gap. Dr. Cook discusses black identity and white response and the problem of inculcating hope where despair is prevalent. Dr. Green focuses on probable educational changes 1970-1990 for the purpose of suggesting strategies for institutional change. Dr. Stern attempts to explain several of the major premises he believes create the generation gap with particular reference to value conflicts. Dr. Weiner discusses approaches to the development of American limited war rationale and the mystique held by many citizens about the subject. The papers are intended to serve as a base for the promotion of action-oriented policy planning. (dm)
