  • Reproductive rights advocates have been put in a particularly challenging position because public debate about ART has been dominated by abortion politics. The Religious Right has succeeded in centralizing the discussion on the moral status of the embryo, obscuring a broader set of issues. Put in a defensive position, the reproductive rights movement has, until recently, not had the opportunity to grapple internally with the complexities of ART use, and has tended to fall back on traditional models of individual autonomy and choice. With increasing numbers of U.S.

  • Supreme Court justices are an aging tribe. Their longevity is a product of the legal safeguards established to ensure their independence. They are entitled to serve (and keep on serving) during “good behavior,” which means (in practical effect) as long as they want to. And they invariably want to for a very long time. The justices now in place are an especially elderly lot. Then again, they, too, are mortal. Vacancies occasionally appear to be fi lled by comparatively youthful men and women whose nominations evoke heated debate....

  • The public service is being transformed as reform is occurring at all levels of government both here and abroad. Although some of the changes address narrow, specific issues, increasingly more radical innovations are commonplace.

  • He thus opened a new stage of the debate on translation in English. But although his theory is important for the linguist, it is nevertheless restricted in that it implies a narrow theory of meaning.

  • The term "economic globalization" has been discussed extensively in the popular press, by business executives and by policy makers all over the world. While aca- demic economists have made some excellent contributions to specific, technical aspects of economic globalization, there appears to be a need for economists to discuss the broader aspects of the issue in a more accessible manner. Failing this, the general debate will be informed only by the writings of non-economists.

  • As the world of politics and public affairs has gradually changed beyond recognition over the past two decades, journalism too has been transformed. Yet the study of news and journalism often seems stuck with ideas and debates which have lost much of their critical purchase. Journalism is at a crossroads: it needs to reaffirm core values and rediscover key activities, almost certainly in new forms, or it risks losing its distinctive character as well as its commercial basis.

  • From the historical perspective, the two central problems facing most of the developing countries are: Who should bear the burden of the costs of development? and How should these costs be shared between those in the urban and rural sectors? The inevitable conflicts between the two have, in fact, been a long standing theme, reflected in the debates, in Britain over the Corn Laws, in the United States over industrial tariffs, and in Russia over the size of the "scissors." The book provides for the first time a unifying framework within which these questions can be systematically approached.
