DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Robert's Rules of Order by Henry M. Robert There appears to be much needed a work on parliamentary law, based, in its general principles, upon the rules and practice of Congress, and adapted, in its details, to the use of ordinary societies. Such a work should give, not only the methods of organizing and conducting the meetings, the duties of the officers and the names of the ordinary motions, but in addition, should state in a systematic manner, in reference to each motion, its object and effect; whether it can be amended or debated; if debatable, the extent to which it opens the main question to debate; the circumstances under which it can be made, and what other motions can be made while it is pending. This Manual has been prepared with a view to supplying the above information in a condensed and systematic manner, each rule being either complete in itself, or giving references to every section that in any way qualifies it, so that a stranger to the work can refer to any special subject with safety. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A critical edition of the book that paved the way for the democratization of American higher education If you have ever attended a town meeting or business lunch, or participated in a church group or department meeting, or served on a faculty senate or maybe just watched C-SPAN, then you have likely encountered Robert's Rules of Order. This critical edition of Henry M. Robert's essential guide to parliamentary procedure features the original text from 1876 along with a companion essay by Christopher Loss, who artfully recounts the book's publication and popular reception, and sheds light on its enduring value for one of the most vital bastions of democracy itself—the modern university. Loss deftly explains why Robert's simple, elegant handbook to democratic governance captured the imagination of so many ordinary citizens during the Gilded Age and how it has shaped the development of our colleges and universities ever since. He shows how Robert's rules can help faculty, administrators, and students to solve problems and overcome challenges through collaboration, disciplined thinking, trust in the facts, and honesty and fairness from all sides. At a time when people's faith in democracy and higher education has been shaken to its core, Robert's Rules of Order offers a powerful reminder of the importance of democratic norms and practices in American life and institutions.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

"The essential purpose of parliamentary rules for a business meeting is quite simply to provide a framework of established procedures for the orderly and fair conduct of the meeting's business. All too frequently, however, traditional parliamentary rules can lead to confusion, disagreement, and disruption when, in debate on a particularly troublesome issue, it is discovered that the Chair of the meeting is not completely familiar with what can be complex and involuted procedures. This is not surprising since traditional rules were tailored to formally structured parliamentary debate. The Modern Rules of Order aims to provide a more modern and simplified procedure that promotes efficiency, decorum and fairness in a form that can be easily mastered and later referred to with ease. They are designed for application to a business meeting, whether the business is that of a major corporation or a small non-profit association, in order to promote timely consideration of the substance of the meeting rather than ritualistic procedure"--Unedited summary from book cover.
