The American Dream that crystallized around James Truslow Adams’ The Epic of America originally formulated in the early 1930s and was conditioned by a decade of complexity and contradiction, of big government projects, intensely fierce nationalism, the definition of the American way, and a distinctive collection of American iconic narratives has had the power and force to successively reshape America for every new generation. Indeed, Adam’s dream of opportunity for each according to ability or achievement shaped against the old class culture of Europe emphasizes a vision of social order in which each person can succeed despite their social origins. Barack Obama, a skillful rhetorician and intelligent politician, talks of restoring the American and has used its narrative resources to define his campaign and his policies. In a time of international and domestic crisis, of massive sovereign debt, of the failure of neoliberalism, of growing inequalities, the question is whether the American Dream and the vision of an equal education on which it rests can be revitalized.

The basic health care system in the United States is not working and must be fixed. In this book, Dr. Gumbner discusses his theories of what does and does not make HMOs work. He also deals with the machinations of Wall Street, the investors' mind-set and the objectives of the HMO. It covers the take over of the HMO industry by the health and accident insurance companies and their current offerings of HMOs that are not HMOs but disguised health and accident insurance companies. Included is the difference between the IPAs and the staff model HMOs and other attemps at health care delivery financing with an explanation of how raiders accomplished back door takeovers of successful companies and destory them. He provides advice to retiring founders and CEOs who want to remain chairman of the board of directors, get the job done and stay in control in a changing environment. Dr. Gumbiner explains his management theories regarding successful HMO management plus the relationship with members of the board of directors.

Against the backdrop of a politically approved view that Europeans did little to further the Zimbabwean nationalist freedom movements before Independence in 1980, this book will help to nail that misconception against a wall.The story of Garfield Todd and his various roles as Christian missionary, liberal prime minister of southern Rhodesia, high-profile opponent of UDI and its architect Ian Smith from 1965 to 1980, will surely be an eye-opener for many young people in central and southern Africa, who may never have heard of this great man who spent his life in education and public service. The role of Garfield Todd and some of the people who worked with him has been effectively airbrushed from the pages of the official Zimbabwean story. Why? is the question. Susan Woodhouse gives us the answer by telling the story of a small but influential group of men and women who dared swim against the racial current in Africa after the Second World War. Its a story told with warmth, personal insight and often great humour. This Edinburgh-based author, who Sir Garfield said knew the Todds better than anyone else, has introduced a small but dedicated group of long forgotten activists toa new generation of readers.
