The Peace Corps PDF ePub eBook

The Peace Corps free pdf Early Peace Corps history has many lessons to teach about politics of public administration policy. Executive Actions to create U.S. Peace Corps and NASA were very different than the Executive Actions today and increasingly of interest to many college courses today. This past history of recent Executive Actions are problematic as the are fully progressed from an idea to reality. Yet, the idea was not so novel when seen from developmental and historical perspectives. In many ways, it represented secularization of many deeply-rooted humanitarian non-secular missionary volunteer traditions of American views, beliefs, and sincere desires to share freedom and prosperity to all. The first Peace Corps volunteers of the Sixties were doing, without religious connotation, what Christian missionaries had done for many decades. This book provides detailed documentation of the many people involved in creation of the U.S. Peace Corps by Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, in the years of the "American Camelot," and for the first 25 years of the Peace Corps -- with insights for the future of such humanitarian movements to the present day and beyond. Special emphasis is given to previously unpublished insights into early influence and interests of the first Director of U.S. Peace Corps, Sargent Shriver. This book can be very useful as additional readings for courses and seminars as well as independent study for Political Science and History of government agency and for understanding of effective roles between Congress and executive government agency management. This book provides historical insights into early use of Presidential Executive Orders for fast action while working with Congress to permanently fund and organize new agencies to address critical national needs, as pioneered by Presidents Kennedy and Johnson for Peace Corps and NASA.
