Industrial relations and European state traditions by Colin Crouch( )

52 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Colin Crouch tries to answer these questions with reference to fifteen western European nations. Using a combination of rational choice theory and historical analysis he traces the development of industrial relations systems in these countries from the 1870s to the present. He ends by seeking explanations for differences further back in time, showing that longer-term historical explanations of contemporary institutions are more necessary than most exercises in policy analysis prefer to accept
Are skills the answer? : the political economy of skill creation in advanced industrial countries by Colin Crouch( )

32 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,630 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of vocational education in advanced industrial countries contributes to two different areas of debate. The first is the study of the diversity of institutional forms taken by modern capitalism, and the difficulties currently surrounding the survival of that diversity. Rather than analysing economic institutions and governance in general, the authors specifically focus upon the key area of skill creation." "The second theme is that of vocational education and training in its own right." "Covering France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Sweden, the UK, and the USA, this book provides a unique approach to education and training within the broader political and economic environment. As such, it will appeal to students, teachers, and practitioners concerned with vocational training, human resource management, industrial relations, and the sociology of the economy."--Jacket

24 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade the neo-institutionalist literature on comparative capitalism has developed into an influential body of work.

The strange non-death of neoliberalism by Colin Crouch( Book )

36 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The financial crisis of 2008-9 seemed to present a fundamental challenge to neo-liberalism, the body of ideas that have constituted the political orthodoxy of most advanced economies in recent decades ... Colin Crouch argues that neoliberalism will shrug off this challenge. The reason is that although it seems to be about free markets, in practice neoliberalism is concerned with the dominance over public life of the giant corporation. This has been intensified, not checked, by the financial crisis and by an acceptance that certain financial corporations are 'too big to fail'. Although much political debate remains preoccupied with conflicts between the market and the state, the impact of the corporation on both [of] these is far more important today"--Back cover

After the euro : shaping institutions for governance in the wake of European monetary union by Colin Crouch( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction of the single European currency, the euro, draws attention to the institutional deficit of the European Union: the organizational structures and forms of governance within which central banks and other monetary authorities are embedded within individual states, are lacking at the European level. This gives unusual prominence to financial structures. While the contributors to this collection do not agree in their evaluation of this phenomenon, they agree on its importance, and analyse different aspects of it in depth. -- From http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/oso/public/content/politicalscience/0198296398/toc.html (Oct. 23, 2012)

Citizenship, markets, and the state by Colin Crouch( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the neo-liberal marketization of citizenship and the resulting processes of individualization proceed, debates on citizenship tend to flounder in outmoded ideological oppositions. By examining concrete cases and processes that accompany contemporary practices of citizenship, this volume brings analytical clarity to contemporary debates about citizenship. The state, the market, and the forum are analysed as competing fields of citizenship practice, and it is their complex relationship which helps us to understand the role and function not only of the debate on citizenship, but of the institutions and practices of citizenship itself in the contemporary world."--Jacket
