Beginning with the nationalized British coal industry and then raising more general issues concerning the contemporary state, Joel Krieger studies the day wage structure for face workers (National Power Loading Agreement) introduced by the National Coal Board in 1966, its consequences, and the ways in which earlier work conventions, wage structures, and social relations affected it. Originally published in 1984.

British politics in the global age : can social democracy survive? by Joel Krieger( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In British Politics in the Global Age, Joel Krieger provides an in-depth study of New Labour's model of government and the political challenges it faces. Krieger analyzes the interaction of global processes and domestic politics from the organization of production to the formation of class, ethnic, and gender-based identities. The book considers how these processes compromise sovereignty, complicate national identities, forge new political agendas, create electoral volatility, and complicate the art of politics. Krieger develops an original framework for analyzing New Labour in comparison to three models of social democracy and places the British case firmly in the context of alternative national models and European debates. Employing an approach with potential applications well beyond the UK, the book reconceptualizes globalization and introduces the concept "modular politics" to explain the context-dependent processes of identity formation that shape--and potentially destabilize--contemporary politics. Thoroughly researched and clearly argued, British Politics in the Global Age is essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand the full ramifications of New Labour for both Europe and the United States.--Publisher description

Blair's war by David Coates( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why and how did Tony Blair support the US-led invasion of Iraq? Was he justified in doing so? These are the questions that David Coates and Joel Krieger seek to answer in Blair's War - the most authoritative and complete record of the conflict to date. Writing with an exquisite sense of the unfolding drama and an eye for detail, the authors develop the arguments for and against the war and, with unerring fairness, test each argument against the record of what was known, what was suspected, and what was misrepresented. They demonstrate how Blair's determination to stand 'shoulder to shoulder' with America after 9/11 trapped him in a tragic logic that took the UK to war. Blair's War blows a hole through each of the justifications for war and offers a detailed, original and compelling set of proposals to return the UK to an ethical foreign policy." "The book provides a unique perspective on this latest unsettling turn in the 'special relationship', and is essential reading on both sides of the Atlantic."--Jacket
The Oxford companion to comparative politics( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The two-volume 'Oxford Companion to Comparative Politics' fills a gap in scholarship on an increasingly important field within political science. Comparative politics, the discipline devoted to the politics of other countries or peoples, has been steadily gaining prominence as a field of study, allowing politics to be viewed from a wider foundation than a concentration on domestic affairs would permit. Comparativists apply various theories and concepts to analyze the similarities and differences between political units, using the results of their research to develop causalities and generalizations
