  3. The End of Marriage?

    The End of Marriage?

    Jane Lewis
    The modern day sees fewer marriages than before, and cohabitation is a major driver of family change. Jane Lewis questions whether this is – as many commentators argue and fear – a sign of ever-increasing individualism. Just as the order in which sex, marriage, cohabitation and childbirth occur can no longer be assumed, nor can the pattern of contributions that men and women make to the household. The End of Marriage? explores both the way in which the old rules have been eroded and what happens as a result. While there may certainly be something of a vacuum, Jane Lewis suggests that in some quarters at least this is being filled by increased negotiation at the household level. This questions the idea that individualism is necessarily selfish and destructive, which in turn raises issues regarding the regulation of the family, an increasingly delicate task for policymakers.

  5. The Global Market for Higher Education

    The Global Market for Higher Education

    Tim Mazzarol, Geoffrey N. Soutar
    The authors of The Global Market for Higher Education discuss this industry from a strategic and services marketing perspective and suggest a model to explain how to obtain and maintain a competitive advantage. The book draws on more than ten years of research with students and educational institutions in a number of countries, using both secondary and primary data to develop the model. The results presented suggest that an institution’s internal resources are key determinants of its appropriate strategy. The authors also suggest that decision makers and education marketers take account of the appropriate market literature when developing international plans and considering new international markets.

    Jane Lewis
    The Voluntary Sector, the State and Social Work in Britain offers a different perspective which shows that Britain has always had a mixed economy of welfare with the voluntary sector playing a major role. This book traces the ideas and practice of one of the most influential voluntary organisations, the Charity Organisation Society, which became the Family Welfare Association in 1946. It examines the meaning of voluntary personal social service, which became social work, and the nature of the shifting balance in social provision between the voluntary and statutory sectors from the late nineteenth to the twentieth century.
