Socialism and Christianity in Early Twentieth-Century America
Jacob H. Dorn
Despite an anti-religious reputation and the anti-religious worldview of many members, the American Socialist movement held a primarily religious and moral attraction for a small but highly articulate group of American Christians of diverse religious tradition. This study explores the dramatic and at times dangerous lives of individuals who found in the vibrant, growing socialist movement before World War I the grounds for hope that the biblical ideals of human worth and economic justice would at last be fulfilled. Its subjects are male and female, black and white, native- and foreign-born, clergy and lay people, and products of Christian traditions ranging from African-American Baptist to Episcopalian. Readers will find not Milquetoasts standing hesitantly on the sidelines, but Christians with an unequivocal commitment to the complete socialist program who made major contributions to socialist work as authors, political candidates, and party leaders.
Biographical chapters examine the interaction between their subjects' experiences amidst the suffering of an urban-industrial society and their religious commitments, the perspectives on the meaning of socialism they brought to their work for the Socialist Party of America, and their careers after war and the rise of communism shattered the socialist movement. These biographies and an introductory chapter on the wider relationships between religion and socialism in Progressive-era America demonstrate that Christians made quite substantial contributions to the party, and that, far from being a monolithic group, they spread out across the spectrum of socialist ideology and tactics. Other issues include attempts to spread socialism within the churches, the Socialist Party's debates over religion, Roman Catholic efforts to prevent Catholic workers' acceptance of socialism, and the ethical qualities that made socialism appealing to Christians.

Melancholy Duty: The Hume-Gibbon Attack on Christianity
Stephen Paul Foster Ph.D.
This book studies the complementary features of the thought of David Hume and Edward Gibbon in the complete range of its confrontation with eighteenth-century Christianity. The ten chapters explore the iconoclasm of these two philosophical historians - Hume as the premier philosopher, Gibbon as the consummate historian - as they labored to 'naturalize' the study of Christianity, particularly with attention to its social and political dimensions. No other work deals as comprehensively or thoroughly with the attempt of philosophical history's challenge to Christianity. Belief in miracles and the afterlife, the dimensions of fanaticism and superstition, and the nature of religious persecution were the themes that occupied Hume and Gibbon in the making of their critique of Christianity. This book makes a valuable contribution to scholarship in a number of fields including the history of ideas, religious studies, and philosophy. It will be of interest to philosophers of religion, historians of ideas, eighteenth-century intellectual historians, scholars of the Scottish Enlightenment, and Hume and Gibbon scholars.

Total Quality and Organization Development
William Lindsay and Joseph A. Petrick
What happens when you bridge the fields of Total Quality (TQ) and Organization Development (OD) to improve organizational performance? You get Total Quality and Organization Development.
Here is a comprehensive and practical treatment of the impact TQ approaches to system performance has on OD. For the first time, views of organization change processes taken by academic researchers and practitioners in the fields of TQ and OD are bridged into a single text. Total Quality and Organization Development presents empowering insights, up-to-date tools, and challenging opportunities for organizational managers, OD practitioners, academicians, trainers, and students alike.
When facing the fact that a true need exists to transform organization structures and corporate cultures, and to develop organizations to meet the challenges and demands of the next century, the principles and practices of total quality can aid in the transformation. OD was originated by a group of varied professionals, ranging from organizational psychologists to economists and philosophers who had a major role in developing the "human" side of work. The core philosophies of the parallel movements of OD and TQ are rapidly coming together as quality advocates deal with human factors in quality improvement and the technical and measurement factors that accompany such changes. This book will be a vital tool in making those changes successfully.

The Wandering Uterus: Politics and the Reproductive Rights of Women
Cheryl L. Meyer
From the FDA review of RU-486 to the recent growth of fertility clinics to the rights of lesbian parents, women's reproductive lives are aggressively regulated by law and medicine. While a great deal has been written on such issues as abortion and postpartum depression, no single volume has offered a broad discussion of the interface between the legal, medical, and political aspects of women's reproduction in a manner accessible and informative to non-specialists. The Wandering Uterus fills that gap. Taking her title from an ancient Greek belief that women's health problems were caused by a wandering uterus that needed to be confined and controlled, Meyer exposes the way in which myths and prejudice about female sexuality continue to influence the practice of law and medicine today.
This book offers new insights and provides a wealth of up-to-date information on a subject that changes every day. The text is divided into three main parts: political issues of pre- conception, the politics of pregnancy, and the politics of motherhood. Throughout, Meyer argues passionately that while technology and medicine must progress, they should not be allowed to do so at women's expense.
