  1. THE WELFARE STATE IN BRITAIN

    THE WELFARE STATE IN BRITAIN

    Michael Hill
    The Welfare State in Britain presents a history of British social policy from the election of Clement Attlee to the fall of Margaret Thatcher. Michael Hill focuses upon the political processes which influenced the key reforms of the late 1940s, and the ways in which those reforms have subsequently been consolidated and undermined. He critically examines some of the theories drawn from political science which have been used to explain the growth of the welfare state in Britain. The so called ‘crisis of the welfare state’ that has dominated recent rhetoric is shown to have its origins in the very period when the welfare state was believed to have been created. Despite its importance for electoral politics, social policy is shown to have often been subordinate to economic and foreign policy. Learn More

  7. THE POLITICS OF FLEXIBILITY

    THE POLITICS OF FLEXIBILITY

    Edited by Bob Jessop, Hans Kastendiek, Klaus Nielsen, Ove K. Pedersen
    This important book presents theoretical and empirical studies of the current reorganization of economic, political and social relations in Britain, West Germany and Scandinavia. An international list of distinguished contributors provide critical and well-informed commentaries on issues such as the transition from ‘Fordism’ to ‘Post-Fordism’, discourses and strategies of flexibility, the recomposition of labour markets and labour processes, the changing functions of the welfare state, and the transformation of the state. The arguments are illustrated using cases drawn equally from these three significant and distinct patterns of political economy. In particular, the book assesses how the need for increased ‘flexibility’ influenced the intellectual and organizational responses of these countries to the crises of the late 1970s. Learn More

  8. NEW DIRECTIONS IN BRITISH POLITICS?

    NEW DIRECTIONS IN BRITISH POLITICS?

    Edited by Philip Norton
    This valauble book presents fresh perspectives on constitutional change in modern Britain. Each contributor – a leading authority in his particular field – focuses on an institution or aspect of the constitution and asks what has changed, why has it changed and what is likely to happen in the future. In conclusion, Philip Norton challenges the growing pressure for a new constitutional settlement. The British system of government, he argues, is under threat from a fragmentation of power: it needs to be protected not weakened. A new constitution offers the prospect of political inertia and failed expectations. Learn More
