Description : In System under Stress, The Challenge to 21st Century Democracy, Third Edition, Donald F. Kettl looks at the latest stress to hit the system--the financial crisis of 2008. In his brief, gripping narrative, Kettl assesses how well the U.S. political system responds under extraordinary pressure--from 9/11, to Hurricane Katrina, to the Great Recession-- and asks if the government is ready to face that next challenge. A well-known scholar, commentator, and writer in the areas of federalism and governance, Kettl asks the hard questions, makes a credible and persuasive argument, and crafts a readable case study that is fascinating and thought-provoking.

Interview air date: May 20, 2008. WINNER OF THE LOUIS BROWNLOW BOOK AWARD!The massive bureaucratic reorganization under the Department of Homeland Security was a response to the system-wide coordination problems brought to light on 9/11. Better planning, new leadership, and far-reaching reform were to demonstrate that the U.S. had learned its lessons well, that it would be prepared for the next attack or disaster. But the catastrophic response to Hurricane Katrina unequivocally showed how this restructuring has not brought about the kinds of long term policy changes that are necessary to deal effectively and efficiently with threats&BAD:—whether manmade or natural.Is the system permanently broken? Should FEMA be removed from DHS or abolished altogether? Donald Kettl, in this thoroughly updated second edition, takes a hard look at the most recent stress on the system. He explores how the 9/11 Commission forever changed public discourse on the topic as well as discusses the ways in which FEMA might be reformed. The country faces solvable problems, he argues, yet is in dire need of new leadership at every level. In his brief, gripping narrative, Kettl assesses how well the U.S. political system responds under extraordinary pressure and asks if the focus will continue to be on fighting the last war. There is small chance the catastrophe that lies ahead will replicate the last one. Is the government ready to face that next challenge?

Description : The collapse of Barings bank and the currency crisis in Mexico are just two instances of stress in an international financial system still largely governed by the institutions established by the Bretton Woods Committee in 1944. Here, the authors put forward an agenda for a new system of international economic institutions to fit the changes in international relations. This agenda includes: * an analysis of the role of the Bretton Woods institutions and their relations with the newly created World Trade Organizations * a discussion of the search for world economic governance * an analysis of the crisis within EMS and the prospects for European Monetary Integration * an examination of the integration of private markets in the new economic architecture.

Description : The structure and functioning of eutrophicated aquatic ecosystems has received considerable attention from limnologists as well as water managers in recent years. Stress has often been on pelagic food webs of deeper lakes whilst littoral systems or shallower lakes have been less thoroughly investigated. Since Dutch aquatic systems are shallow, as a rule, they form a notable exception. But here, too, the orientation was often on pelagic food webs. The present study has a clearly different scope in that it takes the water plant as prime perspective. The editors consider water plants to be the key component in shallow aquatic ecosystems. They have compiled work on one water plant species, Potamogeton pectinatus L., and from one lake, Lake Veluwe, as a typical case, and set out to explain the fluctuations in abundance of this water plant as influenced by eutrophication. A working hypothesis on the mechanism responsible for water plant decline during eutrophication was adopted and tested in a combination of field and laboratory work. A simulation model, SAGAI, for the water plant P.pectinatus was developed and proved to fit independent data very well. The work started out as a joint effort of a single project team in the Department of Nature Conservation of Wageningen Agricultural University, but the present volume has benefited considerably from the inputs of several invited colleagues, as the list of contributors witnesses. The editors have made an invaluable contribution to the understanding of shallow aquatic ecosystems and to their scientifically based and sustainable management.

Description : The Netherlands depends upon a functioning multilateral system to achieve its policy goals in the fields of trade, arms control and human rights. The current instability generated by the ongoing Sino-American rivalry is threatening to upend many of the multilateral institutions that facilitate discussion and action in these fields. The retreat of the United States from the multilateral system has been a shock. The Dutch government and the EU now need to reposition themselves in a world dominated by great power rivalry. While the US retreat from the multilateral system could be viewed as harmful for the Netherlands, it also offered a wake-up call to address long-existing problems and an incentive to update the multilateral system for the coming century.

Description : Many crucial variables and patterns which remain submerged under normal conditions become more apparent when organizations are under stress. This research project drew from selected aspects of previous research on complex organizations, community disasters, small groups, stress, and simulation. The research had three specific objectives - to develop a general conceptual framework whereby organizational stress might be analyzed, to explore the utility of realistic simulation as a methodological technique for the analysis of complex organizations through the construction of a simulate of the communications system of a large metropolitan police organization, and to test selected aspects of the theoretical framework by subjecting the constructed simulate to stress. Work groups were brought to the laboratory where they performed their usual roles in an ecological setting and with equipment paralleling that of their regular radio room. Their normal work load in the laboratory was a duplicate in both quantity and content of what they experienced when actually on the job at the police department. The demands placed on each team during the stress session followed closely those actually experienced by other police communications teams in a real disaster in another city.
