Chapter 1, Brazil, authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
This is a valuable, well-written book on the development and current state of intercity passenger and freight transportation in 12 countries (Brazil, China, East Germany, France, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the USSR, the UK, the US, West Germany, and Zaire). Locations studied represent a good mix of advanced and developing countries with market and centrally planned economies. Choice
This volume surveys the public transportation systems and policies of twelve countries. It is concerned with the selected countries' experiences with the development, maintenance, and use of publicly provided transportation infrastructure for both public (commercial) and private (individual) purposes. The diversity of the countries surveyed, both in terms of the type of economic system and the level of economic development, provides rich and varied national experiences from which lessons can be learned. The volume allows the reader to compare and contrast different needs and policy responses in the public transportation sector of the countries selected.
All modes of transportation are covered and both passenger and freight/cargo transportation are included. Narrative descriptions of transportation modes are accompanied by quantitative indicators of the volume of transportation and other related data. Each country chapter provides the following information: historical and geographical factors influencing the development and maintenance of the country's public transportation system and policy; the impact of socioeconomic changes and political and ideological factors on a country's public transportation system and policies; recent trends and future prospects in public transportation; and transportation policy organization and process. The survey covers the post-World War II period through 1987-88. The country chapters are followed by a bibliographical essay that introduces a selective collection of English-language materials on public transportation systems and policies in the twelve countries surveyed, as well as additional, general works on public transportation. This unique work will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in a cross-cultural perspective on transportation policy.

Chapter 5, Devolution As An Intergovernmental Reform Strategy, authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
This contributed volume explores the management of intergovernmental relations--policies and networks. The book is a response to the growing need for concrete information on the development and use of different strategies for managing in the intergovernmental system. Such strategies became increasingly important during the Reagan years, especially with that administration's penchant for public-private partnerships. This study assembles some of the most respected experts in the field who outline the strategies and management skills needed to build and maintain intergovernmental networks essential to the implementation of complex public programs.

The book is a response to the growing need for concrete information on the development and use of different strategies for managing in the intergovernmental system. Such strategies became increasingly important during the Reagan years, especially with that administration's penchant for public-private partnerships. This study assembles some of the most respected experts in the field, who outline the strategies and management skills needed to build and maintain intergovernmental networks essential to the implementation of complex public programs. From a theoretical vantage point, it introduces several innovative concepts and models that will enhance the reader's ability to understand strategic behavior and management in intergovernmental settings. Public, health, and hospital administrators, public sector management professionals, as well as students and scholars of urban studies, business, and nonprofit studies will find invaluable insight in this detailed study.
Four major themes run through the book, reflecting a new step in the development of the literature relating to strategies and networking: a shift in emphasis from intergovernmental relations to intergovernmental management; the view of networks as a separate and distinct level of analysis requiring revised terminology, concepts, and emphasis; a revised view of strategic management for use in the public sector that moves away from a rational-logical approach; an emphasis on the individual and the importance of behavioral processes. Included here are the ideas of the importance of leadership as a facilitator, and the role of the strategic vision of the leader.

Recent developments in computer graphics have largely involved the following: Integration of computer graphics and image analysis through computer data structure; integration of CAD/CAM as computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) through the design and simulation of manufacturing processes using computer graphics; progress in basic research on the modeling of complex and mathematical graphic objects, such as computational geometry, graphic data bases, hierarchical windows, and texture; use of computer graphics as an improved human interface to present information visually and multidimensionally; and advancement of industrial technology and computer art based on developments in the areas listed above. These trends are strongly reflected in the contents of the present volume either as papers dealing with one particular aspect of research or as multifaceted studies involving several different areas. The proceedings comprise thirty selected, previously unpublished original papers presented in nine chapters.

The advent of the Reagan administration's "New Federalism" initiatives in 1981 impacted state government in numerous ways. One example of this new era in intergovernmental relations is the transfer of responsibility of the Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to state governments.
This volume provides an overview of the Small Cities CDBG program, an analysis of its politics, and an examination of the grant award processes established by the states. It concludes with an assessment of the consequences of state assumption for program activities, outcomes, and administration. Assessing the program transfer within the context of theories and practices of intergovernmental relations and policy execution, the book provides rich contextual information and a thorough comparison of implementation activities and outputs in seven states.

Chapter 3, Does the Federal-Unitary Dichotomy Make a Difference?: One Answer Derived from Macrocomparative Research, authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
This book brings together thirteen experts in subnational politics to examine the effects on local and regional governments of the pessimistic perception that governments are limited in their problem-solving abilities. Contributors discuss the issue of popular participation in the political decision-making process, which has led to the creation of community action groups and local and regional organizations that foster economic development. They take a hard look at the nature of relationships with other levels of government and address the problems caused by a shrinking budget.

Chapter 9, The View from Georgia and Mississippi: Local Attorney's Appraisal of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, co-authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
The division of the Korean peninsula into North and South, a legacy of the Cold War, was turned into a hot war in 1950. Because of its bitter experiences in this war, South Korea has remained one of those countries where anticommunist sentiment runs very high despite the changes that have taken place in the world since 1950. Even when the era of Cold War yield to that of detente in the 1970s, the Cold War in Korea continued between the two competing states.

The thesis of this study is that the goal of political democracy, which was based on Kenya's "African Socialism," has over time fallen in abeyance because the political leaders underestimated possible barriers (such as ethnic-political conflict) when defining the ideas of "African Socialism." This study evaluates Kenya's economic, political, and social systems in operation before white conquest, during colonialism, and after independence. This approach is analytical and explains how the system as a whole functions or fails to function. The thesis concludes that the government's goal of political democracy has not been met because it was based on misconceived notions of "African Socialism." African tribalism existed before "African Socialism" and continues to dominate the Kenya society.

Chapter, Reaching Out Toward Representative Bureaucracy: Public Administration Training for Non-Traditional Students, co-authored by Dale Krane, UNO faculty member.
Virginia C. Todd
Demands for citizens' "civil rights" has been a recurrent theme of contemporary society for nearly twenty years; however, it has not been until the last five that the rights of American indians have been accorded great attention. Perhaps because of the romantic characteristics attributed to them by our fixation on the grand development of the nation, the rights of the Indian have become a challenge to the integrity of the United States. The story of the development of the country is the story of acquisition of Indian lands, and this paper is a discussion of the elements and activities of teh two outstanding contributors to the history of United States-Indian relations--the Congress of the United States, and Supreme Court. The questions of primary responsibility and the content of policy will be discussed through chapters on the status of treaties, acquisition of title to lands, regulatory actions of Congree, and the Indian Claims Commission. In each chapter, significant opinions of the Supreme Court determining responsibility and policy will be considered.
Franklin Roosevelt's advisory system: The institutionalization of the Executive office of the President
James C. Rowling
Since its inception in 1787, the Office of the President of the United States has had to deal with many governmental problems, burdening the President with extraordinary decisions. As the country has grown in population, in geography, and in world influence the number of problems and decisions has escalated, placing immense pressure upon the decision making procress. Today, decisions made by the President of the United States can affect the future of the entire world. Consequently, the advice and administrative assistance a president receives when he is making these decisions is crucial. Furnishing the President with this advice and assistance is one of the most influential elements in the Executive Branch of the Federal Government, the Presidential Advisory System.
