More about this book by Randy Stapilus

One or two won't do. Most books (articles, speeches) about fixing America's health care mess address two or three very real problems and corresponding solutions. But they don't cover the waterfront, and the problem areas are too many to be cured by only a single silver bullet or two. This book for the first time compiles an extensive list of changes, some of them simple and some complex, that could cut costs and re-wire our system so it works better for all Americans. 50 ideas in a short and easy read - just 168 pages packed with solutions that can work. Available now from Ridenbaugh Press, $13.95

The Snake River Basin Adjudication is one of the largest water adjudications the United States has ever seen, and it may be the most successful. Here is how it happened, drawn from the pages of the SRBA Digest, which for 16 years has been tracking the details of the massive case - the advances, the slips, false starts and unexpected leaps. The Digest is the key independent source for anyone watching the SRBA.

Paradox Politics
ORDER IT HERE and now on Amazon.com

After 21 years, a second edition of Paradox Politics, the history of Idaho politics . . . up to when it was published, in 1988. This is a new edition of the book, with some glitches cleared and corrections noted, but including the text of the original. It isn't intended to cover the two decades since, but it does bring some of the stories and political circumstances up to date with more than 100 notes throughout the book. A lot of what happened then, looks a little different now. (Certainly Idaho has changed a lot.) If you're interested in Idaho politics and never read the original, this is now the edition to get. If you've read the original . . . this one will put a lot of it in more perspective than was available those many years ago.
