Restating the state?( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his essay 'The end of laissez-faire' Keynes distinguished between the agenda and the non-agenda of Government. How do we interpret that distinction today? Keynes was writing at the beginning of the great expansion of the state which became the hallmark of a certain kind of social democracy and progressive politics. It has been challenged in the last thirty years by neo-liberal ideas and policies which have caused a major rethinking of the nature of the state, its objectives and its capacities on both right and left. New doctrines for managing the state, new conceptions of the state and new ideas for organising the delivery of public services have abounded: new public management, the enabling state, the hollowing out of the state, the competition state, the market state and public private partnerships are just a few of these. This book explores this recent experience, and asks how should we now understand the state?

Hayek : the iron cage of liberty by Andrew Gamble( Book )

22 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hayek has been one of the key liberal thinkers of the twentieth century. He has also been much misunderstood. His work has crossed disciplines - economics, philosophy and political science - and national boundaries. He was an early critic of Keynes, and became famous in the 1940s for his warnings that the advance of collectivism in western democracies was the road to serfdom. He was a key figure in the post-war revival of free market liberalism and achieved renewed notoriety and some political influence in the 1970s and 1980s as one of the chief intellectual inspirations for the New Right in B

Marxism and social science( Book )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Has Marxism ceased to be part of our political present and future? Has its theory or doctrine anything to contribute to our understanding of the new millennium?

The spectre at the feast : capitalist crisis and the politics of recession by Andrew Gamble( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For a long feast of prosperity in the western world, the crisis in the financial markets has conjured up an old spectre - the spectre of capitalist crisis, which many thought had been finally exorcised. On past experience, a full-blown capitalist crisis would bring with it the threat of slump, collapse, polarisation, conflict, and even war, spreading to all parts of the global economy - hence the great efforts being made to contain the present downturn. This important new book by a leading authority sets the financial crisis of 2007/8 in historical context and assesses its global consequences, how far it might go, and what is to be done."--Publisher's description

Politics and fate by Andrew Gamble( Book )

It reflects the disillusion of political hopes in liberal and socialist utopias in the twentieth century and a widespread disenchantment with the grand narratives of the Enlightenment about reason and progress, and with modernity itself." "The most characteristic expression of this disenchantment is the endless discourses on endism - the end of history, the end of ideology, the end of the nation-state, the end of authority, the end of government, the end of the public realm, the end of politics itself: all have been proclaimed in recent years."

Can the welfare state survive? by Andrew Gamble( Book )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After the most serious economic crash since the 1930s and the slowest recovery on record, austerity rules. Spending on the welfare state did not cause the crisis, but deep cuts in welfare budgets has become the default policy response. The welfare state is seen as a burden on wealth creation which can no longer be afforded in an ever more competitive global economy. There are calls for it to be dismantled altogether. In this incisive book, leading political economist Andrew Gamble explains why western societies still need generous inclusive welfare states for all their citizens, and are rich enough to provide them. Welfare states can survive, he argues, but only if there is the political will to reform them and to fund them"--
