In late 1921, then secretary of commerce Herbert Hoover decided to distill from his experiences a coherent understanding of the American experiment he cherished. The result was the 1922 book American Individualism. In it, Hoover expounded and vigorously defended what has come to be called American exceptionalism: the set of beliefs and values that still makes America unique. He argued that America can make steady, sure progress if we preserve our individualism, preserve and stimulate the initiative of our people, insist on and maintain the safeguards to equality of opportunity, and honor service as a part of our national character. American Individualism asserts that equal opportunity for individuals to develop their abilities is "the sole source of progress" and the fundamental impulse behind American civilization for three-now four-centuries. More than ninety years have passed since this book was first published; it is clear, in retrospect, that the volume was partly motivated by the political controversies of the time. But American Individualism is not simply a product of a dim and receding past. To a considerable degree the ideological battles of Hoover's era are the battles of our own, and the interpretations we make of our past-particularly the years between 1921 and 1933-will mold our perspective on the crises of the present.

The first archive-based study of official corruption under Stalin and a compelling new look at the textures of everyday Soviet life after World War II In the Soviet Union, bribery was a skill with its own practices and culture. James Heinzen's innovative and compelling study examines corruption under Stalin's dictatorship in the wake of World War II, focusing on bribery as an enduring and important presence in many areas of Soviet life. Based on extensive research in recently declassified Soviet archives, The Art of the Bribe offers revealing insights into the Soviet state, its system of law and repression, and everyday life during the years of postwar Stalinism.

A central bank needs authority and a sphere of independent action. But a central bank cannot become an unelected Czar with sweeping, unaccountable discretionary power. How can we balance the central bank's authority and independence with needed accountability and constraints? Drawn from a 2015 Hoover Institution conference, this book features distinguished scholars and policy makers' discussing this and other key questions about the Fed. Going beyond the widely talked about decision of whether to raise interest rates, they focus on a deeper set of questions, including, among others, How should the Fed make decisions? How should the Fed govern its internal decision-making processes? What is the trade-off between greater Fed power and less Fed independence? And how should Congress, from which the Fed ultimately receives its authority, oversee the Fed? The contributors discuss whether central banks can both follow rule-based policy in normal times but then implement a discretionary do-what-it-takes approach to stopping financial crises. They evaluate legislation, recently proposed in the US House and Senate, that would require the Fed to describe its monetary policy rule and, if and when it changed or deviated from its rule, explain the reasons. And they discuss to best ways to structure a committee-like the Federal Open Market Committee, which sets interest rates-to make good decisions, as well as offer historical reflections on the governance of the Fed and much more.

  • The policy context for energy efficiency
  • Energy efficiency is all around us
  • Energy efficiency and aggregate energy intensity in the United States : 1950 through 2014
  • Energy efficiency benefits : environment and security
  • Amplifying energy efficiency
  • Policy lessons from the past forty years.
The entire world, especially the United States, is in the midst of an energy revolution. Since the oil embargo of 1973, individuals, corporations, and other organizations have found ways to economically reduce energy use. In this book, Jim Sweeney examines the energy policies and practices of the past forty years and their impact on three crucial systems: the economy, the environment, and national security. He shows how energy-efficiency contributions to the country's overall energy situation have been more powerful than all the increases in the domestic production of oil, gas, coal, geothermal energy, nuclear power, solar power, wind power, and biofuels. The author details the impact of new and improved energy-efficient technologies, the environmental and national security benefits of energy efficiency, ways to amplify energy efficiency, and more. Energy Efficiency: Building a Clean, Secure Economy reveals how the careful nurturing of private- and public-sector energy efficiency-along with public awareness, appropriate pricing, appropriate policies--and increased research and development, the trends of decreasing energy intensity and increasing energy efficiency can be beneficially accelerated.

Gewone helden' vertelt de boeiende verhalen van mannen en vrouwen in Nederland, België, Frankrijk en Zwitserland die hun leven riskeerden om duizenden mensen te helpen vluchten voor de nazi's. Over de oorlog en het verzet is veel geschreven, vaak over bekende verzetshelden en overlevenden van de Holocaust. Minder aandacht was er voor de vele anonieme mensen die op allerlei manieren vluchtelingen hielpen of in veiligheid brachten. Zo waren zo'n 340 mannen en vrouwen betrokken bij de ontsnappingslijn van het netwerk Dutch-Paris, opgezet door Jean Henri Weidner. Langs deze zorgvuldig geconstrueerde vluchtroute via België en Frankrijk naar Zwitserland en Spanje ontsnapten tussen 1942 en 1945 ruim 3000 mensen aan de nazi's. Mede dankzij het persoonlijke archief van Weidner zijn de verhalen van de vluchters en verzetsplegers van Dutch-Paris boven tafel gekomen. Dit boek geeft gewone helden een naam en een gezicht.
