The recently implemented program of the Army regimental system perhaps best typifies the current perception of the linkage between primary group cohesion and fighting power. Curiously, the U.S. Army decided on this program based on one of the very factors Richard H. Kohn cited in support of his argument, the loosening of unit ties caused by personnel policies during the Vietnam War. By being assigned individually and without regard to previous unit association, it was reasoned, the soldier did not develop personal or unit loyalties and perceived his environment only in terms of his own security, an egocentric creed which the one-year tour accentuated. Indeed, several commentators, particularly Richard Gabriel and Paul Savage in "Crisis in Command," maintain that unenlightened personnel policies -- individual rotation among them -- caused U.S. Army, Vietnam (USARV), to all but disintegrate in the final years of that conflict. Yet, is it true that Army personnel policies had such an inimical effect on unit performance? There are no conclusive studies of cohesion and fighting power during the Vietnam War, or for World War II and the Korean War. Nevertheless, there exists a body of literature critical of individual rotation policies during the Vietnam War and their deleterious effects. With few exceptions, the writers are civilian. Although no authoritative research exists, a large body of personal memoirs and incidental studies does provide the basis for an examination of the interrelationship between personnel policies and unit performance in Vietnam. I contend that individual rotation did not adversely affect the unit cohesion which sustained American soldiers in combat throughout most of the Vietnam War even though other personnel policies did not take adequate cognizance of group dynamics.

NFL linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter has had it with shifty clients, dirty prosecutors, and a legal system out of whack. It's enough to make a man want to leave Miami and never look back—until he gets a call from Victoria Lord, the better half of hot local legal team Solomon & Lord. Her partner in life and law has been arrested for murder. What's worse: the only person who can clear him has fled the city. Now it's up to Jake and Victoria to track down the witness—a stunning “Bar girl”—before she's roped in by the feds…or eliminated by the Russian mob. Jake knows that if he doesn't get to the witness first, his client's case is lost. Luckily, he's got some good advice from his college football coach: “Buckle your chin strap and hit somebody.” And sometimes, the only way to win a tough case is to do just that.

This paper considers the effects of trade policy-tariffs and quotas-when importing is done by competitive traders who are identical ex ante but differ ex post. We show that the standard equivalence results no longer hold and the conventional ranking of tariffs and quotas is turned on its head: quotas are not as bad for welfare as previously believed, while tariffs may restrict trade by more than originally intended. Furthermore, the allocation of property rights (quota licenses) has real effects beyond the distribution of rents; this, in turn, has implications for the effects of corruption on welfare.

Individual-level predictors of erroneous arrest for illegal behavior are investigated using a national level, probability sample. The analysis specifically examines whether being a "usual suspect" based on previous criminal behavior and being male; "guilt by association" based on the illegal behavior of one's friends; academic achievement; and sociodemographic variables including ethnicity and socioeconomic status, impact the likelihood of being erroneously arrested for a crime. Results suggest that officers may be erroneously arresting minorities and individuals who have low academic achievement. Implications for policy and future research are considered.

Tony Kozol and Rock Bottom (an engagingly laid-back sleuthing duo-Booklist) are back in their fifth hair-pulling, teeth-gnashing, nail-biting, name-calling (and that's only what the author went through to write it) adventure. Hired by folk singer Nanci Dement to appear with her at a Kewpie doll convention in Branson, Missouri, the boys are expecting nothing but fun and relaxation. What they get is murder, and lots of it. Not to mention, Jim Stafford, who finds himself with his own set of troubles-he's been accused of stealing a valuable Kewpie. Worse still, he's been accused of murder! While Tony and Rock try to sort through the tangle of their lives and help out their new friend, Jim, who thinks they are detectives (and Heaven knows they're not!) Nanci is ready to kill them. After all, she's hired them to play the guitar and bass and they're spending all their time playing sleuths! Will Jim spend the remainder of his days singing Cow Patti in jail? Will Nanci Dement stalk down and rub out Tony and Rock with her mandolin? Hold on to your Kewpie doll and read on!

The Routledge Dictionary of Modern American Slang offers the ultimate record of modern, post WW2 American Slang. The 25,000 entries are accompanied by citations that authenticate the words as well as offer examples of usage from popular literature, newspapers, magazines, movies, television shows, musical lyrics, and Internet user groups. Etymology, cultural context, country of origin and the date the word was first used are also provided. In terms of content, the cultural transformations since 1945 are astounding. Television, computers, drugs, music, unpopular wars, youth movements, changing racial sensitivities and attitudes towards sex and sexuality are all substantial factors that have shaped culture and language. This new edition includes over 500 new headwords collected with citations from the last five years, a period of immense change in the English language, as well as revised existing entries with new dating and citations. No term is excluded on the grounds that it might be considered offensive as a racial, ethnic, religious, sexual or any kind of slur. This dictionary contains many entries and citations that will, and should, offend. Rich, scholarly and informative, The Routledge Dictionary of Modern American Slang and Unconventional English is an indispensable resource for language researchers, lexicographers and translators.
