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

53 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,290 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."--Jacket

Pre-capitalist modes of production by Barry Hindess( Book )

35 editions published between 1975 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 757 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1975, this book investigates the various pre-capitalist modes of production briefly indicated in the works of Marx and Engels, and gives an examination of the conditions of the transition from one mode of production to another. The fundamental concepts used in these investigations, including those of mode of production, of necessary labour and surpass labour, of politics and state, are derived from Capital and from other works of Marxist theory. The primary aim of the analysis is to raise the conceptualisation of pre-capitalist modes of production and of transition to a more rigorous level. This book will appear controversial to both Marxists and non-Marxists alike. "--Provided by publisher

Reinventing democracy( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 628 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

The Pluralist theory of the state : selected writings of G.D.H. Cole, J.N. Figgis, and H.J. Laski by G. D. H Cole( Book )

27 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English political pluralism is a challenging school of political thought, neglected in recent years but now enjoying a revival of interest. It is particularly relevant today because it offers a critique of centralized sovereign state power. The leading theorists of the pluralist state were G.D.H. Cole, J.N. Figgis and H.J. Laski, and this volume brings together their most important ideas, making accessible a crucial body of work on radical political theory. It includes their major writings, mostly out of print and difficult to obtain, and here gathered together in an anthology for the first time. Current in the first two decades of this century, English political pluralism offered a convincing critique of state sovereignty and proposed a decentralized and federated form of authority - pluralism - in which the affairs of society would be conducted by self-governing and independent associations. Paul Hirst's comprehensive introduction situates English political pluralism historically and gives a critical account of its main theoretical themes and the debate surrounding them.; The book will be of interest to those who see radical reform as vital for the future health of democracy, to students of political theory and the history of political thought and also to students of jurisprudence and legal theory interested in the pluralist debate as it affects the concept of legal sovereignty

Globalization in question by Paul Q Hirst( Book )

24 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 377 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
