Globalization in question : the international economy and the possibilities of governance by Paul Q Hirst( Book )

69 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Globalization' is one of the key concepts of our time. It is used by both the right and the left as the cornerstone of their analysis of the international economy and polity. In both political and academic discussions, the assumption is commonly made that the process of economic globalization is well under way and that this represents a qualitatively new stage in the development of international capitalism. But is there in fact such a thing as a genuinely global economy? Globalization in Question investigates this notion, providing a very different account of the international economy and stressing the possibilities for its continued and extended governance." "The new edition of this best-selling text has been thoroughly revised and updated to take into account new issues which have become salient in the period since the first and second editions were published. Several new chapters have been added and others combined or re-written to assess the growing supra-national regionalization of the international economy, the emergence of India and China as new super-powers, and the possibilities for the continued governance of the global system. A new author has been added to strengthen the analytical embrace of the book given the untimely death of Paul Hirst in 2003." "Globalization in Question, Third Edition, is a continuing intervention into current discussions about the nature and prospects of globalization. The book has far-reaching implications which will be of interest to students and academics in a number of disciplines including politics, sociology, economics and geography, as well as to journalists and policy-makers."--Jacket

Reinventing democracy( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 637 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The current triumph of democracy has also brought to the fore its great vulnerability. There is rising dissatisfaction with the existing institutions of British democracy, and with the scope and degree of accountability they offer. This is reflected in declining levels of participation and falling party recruitment, but also in the emergence of a striking critical consensus across the political spectrum about the ills of democracy in Britain." "This collection of specially commissioned essays addresses this paradox, and sets out both to further the diagnosis and to suggest remedies to the difficulties which democracy faces in Britain. Unusually, it balances a commitment to expanding the imaginative boundaries of our thinking about democracy with a determination to offer quite practical suggestions for reforming existing institutions and practices. The essays deal with the depletion of the powers of local government and the rise of 'quangos'; with the erosion of democratic control by managerial and accounting techniques and the challenges to accountability posed by the new information technologies; with the economic limits to democracy, and the need to improve the accountability of both companies and associations within civil society, with the relationship between national democracy and the governance of the European Union; and with the shifting content of the idea of democracy." "Written by distinguished academics, journalists, politicians and activists, this volume brings together a wide range of perspectives, all of them directed towards the task of reinventing the unsettingly simple idea of democracy for a world which is becoming increasingly complex. It will appeal to all those concerned with British politics today, as well as to those interested in the future of democracy."--Jacket

Durkheim, Bernard and epistemology Volume 2 by Paul Q Hirst( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title, first published in 1975, contains two complimentary studies by Paul Q. Hirst: the first based on Claude Bernard's theory of scientific knowledge, and the second concerning Emile Durkheim's attempt to provide a philosophical foundation for a scientific sociology in The Rules of Sociological Method. The author's primary concern is to answer the question: is Durkheim's theory of knowledge logically consistent and philosophically viable? His principal conclusion is that the epistemology developed in the Rules is an impossible one and that its inherent contradictions are proof that soci
