Health reform designs from the current administration and from Congress propose some dramatic and far-reaching changes and alternatives to the current system. Are these new models the best, or are there other alternatives better matched to actual needs and with fewer adverse side effects? Can the current individual market serve as a foundation for reform, or must it be swept away in a root-and-branch change and replaced with something entirely new? In Health Reform without Side Effects, Mark V. Pauly offers a detailed look at the individual insurance market in the United States. He explains h

This groundbreaking volume explores the multicultural debate that has evolved in the United States and Europe since the cataclysmic events of 9/11. Instead of suggesting closure by presenting a unified narrative about cultural diversity, national identity, and social stratification, the essays in this well-balanced collection present a variety of perspectives, each highlighting the undiminished relevance of key issues such as immigration, assimilation, and citizenship, while also pointing to unresolved conflicts over universalism, religion, and tolerance. Most importantly, this volume shows th

When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton published “America’s Pacific Century” in Foreign Policy magazine in November 2011, the administration was clearly indicating to domestic and international audiences that the United States is beginning a pivot toward the Asia-Pacific. Clinton’s article served as a spark for renewed interest in the nation’s Asia-Pacific strategy and American interests in the region. This work looks to the future of the Asia-Pacific and examines a broad range of questions that focus on diplomatic, economic, and military challenges fac

AFTER the successful publication of my book The Destruction of Dresden on April 1, 1963 -- which was accompanied by a serialisation in the then fledgling Sunday Telegraph newspaper -- I learned that the British Air Ministry had subjected my two brothers, both Royal Air Force officers, to critical comment and interview.To ease their position, I decided to write a book about one of RAF Bomber Command’s most successful operations, the August 1943 strike against Hitler’s secret rocket plant at Peenemünde, on the Baltic coast. Of the legitimacy of this particular attack there could

Laws are the whitewash that governments use to disguise the ugly fact that they steal money from productive people, then use it to control how they live their lives. Being merely one-sided contracts, laws have no moral validity whatsoever; but eight generations of government schooling have conned Americans into supposing that they are magic, to be held in respect and awe. Accordingly, if there is a tax law, most people tend to obey it. In this masterpiece, perhaps the most important book he ever wrote, Irwin Schiff shows that there is no such thing; how even that veneer of respectability fa
