Manpower and the City.
Bolino, August C.
Stressing the problems of American inner cities, this volume reviews major manpower problems in their urban setting, various Federal training and educational approaches to maximizing the use of manpower, and the directions that these programs may take during the 1970s. Chapter 1 reviews the general economic conditions of American cities. Employment prospects, educational requirements, transportation, and other aspects of manpower use are treated in the next three chapters. Results of the lack of coordination in Federal and other manpower programs are documented in Chapter 5. New approaches to urban renewal, improvements in education, income proposals, and new patterns of governmental funding and revenue sharing, are discussed as ways of making better use of manpower. After summarizing its main points, the book closes with three tentative predictions: the Office of Economic Opportunity will be dismantled; more money and authority will go to the states; the budget for manpower and poverty will continue to be based on rhetoric rather than reality. (The document includes an index, 34 tables and charts, general bibliography, and a list of Manpower Administration research reports.) (LY)
