Kann man ganz Amerika in ein Buch packen? Geschichte und Gegenwart? Popkultur und Frömmigkeit? Glänzende Oberfläche und enttäuschte Versprechen? Mit »Pulphead« hat John Jeremiah Sullivan bewiesen, dass das möglich ist. In der Tradition von Meistern wie Tom Wolfe und Hunter S. Thompson verwischt er die Grenze zwischen Literatur und Journalismus, Erzählung und Reportage, Hochliteratur und Unterhaltung, Hemingway und Hollywood. Wie in einem Panoptikum entsteht aus Artikeln über Axl Rose, christliche Rockfestivals, Reality TV, die Tea-Party-Bewegung, vergessene Naturforscher und den heruntergekommenen Süden das Panorama eines Landes, das der Rest der Welt immer weniger versteht. Pulphead löste in den USA wahre Jubelstürme aus, und die Begeisterung hat längst auch die alte Welt respektive die Bundesrepublik erreicht: »Noch jeder ungläubige Thomas, der dem konzertierten Entzücken misstrauen wollte, kehrte mit leuchtenden Augen von der Lektüre zurück.« Der Tagesspiegel »Essays aus und über Amerika von einem, der schreiben kann, dass einem der Mund offen stehen bleibt.« Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung »Die besten Geschichten über Amerika, die Popkultur und die Gegenwart seit langem.« Süddeutsche Zeitung »... die besten Geschichten schreibt immer noch das Leben, und das ist Sullivans Stoff.« Tages-Anzeiger »Sehr, sehr gute, wahre, berührende Geschichten darüber, was es heißen kann, heute zu leben« Süddeutsche Zeitung

Ein ganz realer Thriller: Wie skrupellose Lobbyisten seriöse Forscher diffamierten und gezielt Falschinformationen in lancierten Medienkampagnen global verbreiteten. Der Plot ist hollywoodreif, die Geschichte so skandalträchtig wie bestürzend Eine Handvoll Forscher leugnet, manipuliert und diskreditiert anerkannte wissenschaftliche Tatsachen wie den Klimawandel oder den Zusammenhang zwischen dem Rauchen und gesundheitlichen Risiken. Doch Die Machiavellis der Wissenschaft (im Original Merchants of Doubt) ist kein fiktiver Roman, sondern berichtet von der Realität. In den USA sorgte das Buch von Naomi Oreskes und Erik M. Conway für Furore und wurde zum Bestseller. Kein Wunder, die Geschichte, die sie erzählen, ist schließlich unglaublich – es ist die Geschichte über den Kampf gegen Fakten und über den Handel mit dem Zweifel, über die Manipulation der Medien und die Diffamierung Einzelner. Und sie geht uns alle an. Schließlich lehnten die USA als einzige Industrienation die Ratifizierung des Kyoto–Protokolls ab und verhinderten so wichtige Schritte des Klimaschutzes. Ein Lehrstück über die Macht der Industrielobby und ihre Handlanger aus Politik und Wissenschaft und ein Lehrstück darüber, wie erschreckend einfach es möglich ist, mit unlauteren Absichten selbst seriöse Medien zu beeinflussen und mit nachweislich falschen Informationen zu »füttern«.

Viele Arme, wenige Reiche - Warum die wachsende Ungleichheit uns alle angeht Die Ungleichheit in der Welt nimmt zu: Immer weniger Menschen häufen immer größeren Reichtum an, während die Zahl der Armen wächst und die Mittelschicht vom Abstieg bedroht ist. Doch diese Entwicklung, so zeigt Nobelpreisträger Joseph Stiglitz in seinem neuen Bestseller, ist keine zwangsläufige Folge einer freien Marktwirtschaft, sondern Ergebnis einer globalisierten Ökonomie, die zunehmend vom reichsten einen Prozent der Bevölkerung beherrscht wird.

Mit Barack Obama sollte die amerikanische Gesellschaft ihren jahrhundertealten Rassismus überwinden. Am Ende seiner Amtszeit zerschlugen sich die Reste dieser Hoffnung mit der Machtübernahme Donald Trumps, den Ta-Nehisi Coates als "Amerikas ersten weißen Präsidenten" bezeichnet: ein Mann, dessen politische Existenz in der Abgrenzung zu Obama besteht. Coates zeichnet ein bestechend kluges und leidenschaftliches Porträt der Obama-Ära und ihres Vermächtnisses – ein essenzielles Werk zum Verständnis der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft der USA, von einem Autor, dessen eigene Geschichte jener acht Jahre von einem Arbeitsamt in Harlem bis ins Oval Office führte, wo er den Präsidenten interviewte.

Designed for upper-level and professional courses, this text is a state-of-the-art introduction to the public policymaking process that gives equal attention to issues of policy implementation and public governance. It uses an innovative systems approach, integrating the activities, actors, tools, and techniques of policymaking, to provide a comprehensive framework for policy design and analysis. The book is practice-oriented, with a focus on the ways that policymakers at all levels employ the standard technologies of governance--authority, agency, program, rule, contract, and budget--to design policy outputs and achieve policy outcomes. Through extensive use of graphics, the text makes concepts easy to grasp for a generation of students accustomed to the visual presentation of ideas. Case studies illustrate the tools and techniques discussed, and key terms, questions for discussion, and suggested readings round out each chapter. Among the many emerging issues covered in this text that will be especially relevant for upper-level and professional programs and student-practitioners are: --program design --performance management --public contracting --policy networks --venue shopping --commercial and nonprofit sector participation in the policymaking process.
