Finding Freedom, Liberty and Justice in the Lived Environment

Author(s): Randall Ray Booze

Book Description

This book takes a unique look at democracy and how foundational concepts of democracy like freedom, liberty and justice play an important role in everyday lives and work and home environments. More importantly, the book looks at how lived environments that lack these concepts can negatively impact health and well-being.

The book identifies opportunities for improvement in work and home environments through the introduction of the foundational concepts of democracy and how these concepts can improve humans’ everyday lives through various laws that have been established to protect democratic rights within these lived environments.

The book also provides an analysis of research participants’ views related to having various democracy conditions within work and home environments, and demonstrates how various technologies can be used to improve humans’ ability to create more democratic, healthy, and productive work and home environments.

Biography

Dr Randall Ray Booze has been involved in the development and implementation of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies over the past 30 years. Randall has a Bachelor of Science in Design degree in Urban and Regional Planning, a Master of Science degree in Decision and Information Systems, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree in Justice Studies, all from Arizona State University. Randall has spent a great deal of time researching legal issues related to technology, public policy, and workplace law to help fellow co-workers address workplace issues, which prompted him to focus his PhD research in the area of Democracy in the Workplace. His interest in using technology to address social issues led him to develop the dynamic research system design described in this book to enable people to learn more about their rights and to address issues that people often face in workplace and home environments.
