Attlee's great contemporaries : the politics of character by C. R Attlee( )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of Clement Attlee's writings - brought together by Frank Field MP - that comment on political leadership today. In 1946, Clement Attlee came to power as Labour Prime Minister with a huge landslide majority. Under his leadership some of the greatest reforms were initiated, not least the founding of the National Health Service. Attlee had a firm vision of a more just and equitable society, which the nation wanted. This firm vision is something that Frank Field believes is now absent from politics - the recent fiasco of the 10p tax reform is just one example. In retirement Clement Attlee wrote a masterly series of profiles of his great contemporaries, many published at the time in The Observer. They are of extraordinary historical interest and command an audience in their own right. But to Field they epitomize the intellect and humanity of a hero of 20th Century politics, a man with qualities so profoundly lacking among current political leaders. The book thus has a real purpose. New Labour has lost the plot and lacks a coherent vision for the well being of modern men and women. In a brilliant and controversial introduction, Frank Field argues his case convincingly. There is an afterword by Professor Peter Hennessy that goes on to show the importance of Attlee in full historical perspective

Education and the urban crisis by Frank Field( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book consists of papers presented and discussions held at two Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation conferences on education and the urban crisis in Britain. Fundamental changes taking place in British cities are examined and are compared to urban problems in the United States. It is stated that the "urban crisis" is simply another way of referring to the persistence of poverty in Great Britain. The extent to which schools are contributing to or can be used to counter inner city poverty is addressed. Broad themes examined include falling educational attainment, violence in the schools, and the failure of schools to develop, among their pupils, skills which are in demand in the labor market. Declining reading ability of city students is discussed. Falling educational standards and achievement are related to the increase in behavioral problems in many schools. Government programs for dealing with urban school problems are reviewed. A number of suggestions are offered for improving the schools' ability to prepare their students for the British job market. Activities undertaken by the Gulbenkian Foundation to address problems in urban education are described. Ways the Foundation disseminates information about its contributions are discussed. (Gc)

Making welfare work : reconstructing welfare for the millennium by Frank Field( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The welfare system in the United Kingdom is broken. The number of claims has escalated and so, in consequence, have welfare expenditures. The social system does not encourage welfare recipients to become independent. Half the population of the United Kingdom lives in households drawing one of the major means-tested benefits. Research documents that means-tests paralyze self-help, discourage self--im-provement, and tax honesty while at the same time rewarding claimants for being either inactive or -deceitful. In Making Welfare Work, Frank Field challenges the current political orthodoxy, particularly its emphasis on the role of legislation alone in bringing about social improvement in a welfare state. Field argues that the impact legislation has on personal character is pivotal to human advance in a welfare state. Welfare reconstruction needs to address and channel the differing roles of self-interest, self-improvement, and altruism, which are among the great driving forces in human character. A successful welfare state must reinforce these important forces which influence our nature because to create an imbalance between these three motive forces will always undermine welfare's objectives. Field discusses in detail aspects of modern British society in dire need of change. These include the drug trade, benefit traps, permanent adolescence, the rise of part-time work, inequality in incomes, excluding the disabled, single parents, and the very elderly, for example. This clearly delineated, well-researched blueprint for success will be important reading for politicians and policymakers in all industrialized nations. Its author is well-positioned to revise and review the welfare policies of democratic -societies."--Provided by publisher
