Welfare or welfare state? : contradictions and dilemmas in social policy by David Marsland( Book )

17 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Welfare State is a failed Utopia. It is costly, inefficient and counterproductive. Governments everywhere are desperately seeking alternatives. Welfare or Welfare State? analyzes the deficiencies of state welfare: its muddled philosophy; its redundancy in an era of economic progress and prosperity; the extravagant costs of the Welfare State; the gross inefficiency arising from monopoly, bureaucracy and inhuman scale; and the destructive impact of universal state welfare on its clients, whom it drives in increasing numbers into underclass dependency. A practical programme of radical reform is proposed. The prosperous majority should opt out of state provision for education, health care, pensions and unemployment protection. They would be better served by self-reliance and the market. For the minority who cannot manage on their own, a new Special Assistance Programme should be instituted - its sole mission to restore them to self-reliance as quickly as possible
Self reliance : reforming welfare in advanced societies( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the United States, Great Britain, Western Europe, and almost everywhere else in the developed world except Switzerland and Japan, a massive bureaucratic apparatus of state welfare has been built up since the Second World War. It has proven to be costly, inefficient, and grossly counterproductive. Everywhere governments are desperately seeking ways to reduce the size of state welfare. Efficiency, particularly in education and health care, must be improved. Above all, an alternative is urgently needed to the inherited cradle to grave welfare approach, which multiplies unemployment, generates dependency, and creates a fractious, subjugated underclass. Self Reliance has been written by four leading experts on welfare and social policy. Using British experience as a case study, the book analyzes the failings of state welfare and provides detailed practical proposals for reform

Objects of desire : consumer behaviour in shopping centre choices by Charles Dennis( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What determines where people shop? Why would shoppers visit one shopping centre rather than another? Developers, backers, planners and Government will wish to make reliable estimates of the viability of proposed new centres. Developers wish to plan, build and/or improve shopping centres to maximise profitable retail sales. Shopping centre managers want to create lively environments that enhance the shopping experience. From a broader perspective there is a need to understand shopping as a fundamental aspect of modern society. This book explores a range of perspectives from traditional to the latest thinking. The author suggests, perhaps controversially, that shopping styles may be rooted in the lifestyles necessitated when our ancestors adapted to the African savannah. These disparate approaches have been drawn together with a summary of the hypothesis for which the author has found support."--Jacket

Fraud and fallible judgment : varieties of deception in the social and behavioral sciences by David Marsland( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fraud and Fallible Judgment is both an exploration of fraud and an examination of the nature of truth in social relations and experience. The essaysin this volume are concerned with deception in the social and behavioral sciences, and conditions that elicit deceptive behavior among scientists, whatever then-discipline. The issue of fraud in the social sciences moves far beyond a simple dictionary definition of duplicity. Errors in experimentation are less definite and less concrete than they are in the physical sciences. Fraud in the social sciences ranges from simple plagiarism of data and ideas to quiet suppression of information.The essays in 'Fraud and Fallible Judgment' raise issues of professional judgment from self-policing to academic policy. Episodes of misconduct in research, once resolved within the academic or scientific community, are now commanding media attention on an unprecedented scale. One net effect over the long term may prove to be that public confidence in the research enterprise has been irretrievably weakened (likewise, perhaps, public willingness to invest tax dollars in the support of that enterprise). Allegations of fraud can also be used to destroy careers. Once maligned, a reputation may never be repaired. The very act of writing on the subject with candor and intelligence is itself an act of rare courage. Contributions to this volume include: David Goodstein, "The Fading Myth of the Noble Scientist"; J. Phillipe Rushton, "Cyril Hurt as the Victim of Scientific Hoax"; Del Thiessen and Robert Young, "Investigating Sexual Coercion"; and Marcel LaFollette, "The Silence of the Social Sciences." This volume is an ideal text for students and scientists in all areas of the social and behavioral sciences, particularly psychologists and sociologists."--Provided by publisher
Darwinian evolution by Antony Flew( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Darwinian Evolution is a study of the historical background of Darwin's ideas, of their logical structure, and of their alleged and actual implications." "Flew explores the Scottish Enlightenment, an important and often neglected aspect of Darwin's intellectual background. He compares Darwin with such figures as Adam Smith, Thomas Malthus, and Karl Marx, emphasizing not the similarities, but the differences between the natural and social sciences. Flew argues that social science must do what natural science does not: take account of individual choice. He examines the creationist controversy in Britain and the United States and discusses the possibility of a human sociobiology." "In his new introduction, Flew updates his book by discussing relevant works that have appeared since it was published thirteen years ago. He discusses two different tendencies among both social scientists and those who develop or promote social policies according to various findings in the social sciences: (1) to assume there is no such thing as human nature; and (2) to take no account of the possibility that differences between sets of individuals may be genetically determined. Flew maintains that both these tendencies violate Darwin's theory. Darwinian Evolution is an intriguing study that should be read by sociologists, biologists, philosophers, and all those interested in the impact of Darwin and his work."--Jacket
