Attitudes Aren't Free Thinking Deeply About Diversity in the Us Armed Forces By James E. Parco, David A. Levy
2010 | 571 Pages | ISBN: 1585662046 | PDF | 7 MB


Attitudes Aren’t Free: Thinking Deeply about Diversity in the US Armed Forces emerged from a vision to collect essays from the brightest voices of experts across the range of contentious social issues to catalyze productive discussions between military members of all ranks and services. Forty-nine experts contributed to the following 29 chapters writing on the primary themes of religious expression, homosexuality, gender, race, and ethics. Chapters appearing in this volume passed the scrutiny of a double-blind peer-review by one or more referees from the board of reviewers, listed following the table of contents. The chapters are largely written in a colloquial, intellectual op-ed fashion and capture a “snapshot” of the current discussions regarding a particular topic of interest to uniformed personnel, policy makers, and senior leaders. Each section seeks to frame the spectrum of perspectives captured within the current debates and lines of argument. Authors were specifically asked not to address all sides of the issue, but rather to produce a well-reasoned argument explaining why they believe their well-known position on an issue is in the best interests of the military members and make specific recommendations about how best to address the policy issues from their perspective.
