The political sciences; general principles of selection in social science and history by Hugh Stretton( Book )

35 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in English and Polish and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social science is a social activity as well as a method of discovery. The researchers' values and politics colour their work and so do their choices of scientific method. This book is about both - the technical effects of values and the political effects of technique. The author reports what social scientists and historians actually do. He sorts out the scientific from the political content in a wide range of old and new work in history, sociology, political science and economics. The overall work is a detailed political and technical criticism of the 'scientistic' programme which would hav

Public goods, public enterprise, public choice : theoretical foundations of the contemporary attack on government by Hugh Stretton( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The public economy, bureaucracy and processes of democratic government have a bad name in many western societies, a reputation reinforced by recent theories of public goods, public enterprise and public choice. This book reviews and challenges these theories on three fronts. Firstly, public action reflects a range of human motivations including material interests and social and moral commitments, not just the individual self-interest that lies at the explanatory heart of the three theories. Secondly, the productivity and social quality of modern economies reflect the diverse contributions of commercial, domestic and public economic realms, contributions not captured by theories assuming the inherent superiority of private markets. Thirdly, old and new ideas within established traditions of political thought justify more constructive government to produce more equal societies and to provide the institutional supports essential for full human development and diverse social life. Such arguments go far beyond standard libertarian and liberal rationales for limited government."--BOOK JACKET

One of Australia's leading thinkers draws on a lifetime of research, analysis and commonsense in his blueprint for making a better Australia.

He argues that we can continue women's progress to genuine equality at home and at work and reconcile it with parenting that elicits the best from and for our children. He shows that we can determine how best to transfer inc
