Getting immigration right : what every American needs to know by Peter Siavelis( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Getting Immigration Right focuses on what is arguably the most important aspect of the current immigration debate: how best to understand and resolve illegal immigration from Mexico. The scale and character of illegal immigration is only one facet of the "immigration problem" currently before Congress and the president, but it is its most contentious and visible face. It is also the one part of the contemporary immigration story that attracts the most intense opposition, the most widely disseminated mythologies, and the most powerfully advocated solutions. What to do about illegal immigration from Mexico is a major political question of our time. The book's wide-ranging and timely discussion includes legal and non-Mexican immigration. It sets the context of immigration before exploring the job experiences of illegal immigrants and their quest for the American dream. The contributors then focus on the causes and consequences?economic and social?of immigration, both legal and otherwise, and vividly describe the Latino experiences of illegality, including crossing the border and living in fear of deportation. In addition, the reform of immigration law is discussed from three distinct viewpoints: one conservative, one liberal, and one libertarian. The volume closes with its editors' own proposals for comprehensive immigration reform. With a foreword by Alejandro Portes, a professor of sociology at Princeton University and author of Immigrant America: A Portrait
A liberal tool kit : progressive responses to conservative arguments by David Coates( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book brings together in one place the liberal and conservative arguments that face the Republican and Democratic parties in the run-up to the 2008 election. In each chapter, David Coates lays out the popular conservative case and then presents a point-by-point liberal response. Each chapter challenges rightwing ways of framing the issue and pulls discussion back into the civilized center of American politics. The sources and evidence sustaining both conservative and liberal arguments are listed in endnotes and developed more fully on an associated blog site."--Jacket

Models of capitalism : growth and stagnation in the modern era by David Coates( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wide ranging in its scholarship and radical in its argument, Models of Capitalism brings the story of each leading economy up to the new millennium and into the age of global capital. It explores the impact of globalization on each model in turn, and explains the diminution in labour rights and working conditions which is now evident in all of them."--BOOK JACKET
Making the progressive case : towards a stronger U.S. economy by David Coates( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time of tea parties and rallies to restore sanity, the political debate in America has become nothing more than a shouting match of various soundbites. This book offers a refreshing change by introducing both conservative arguments and liberal responses in a dispassionate and clear manner. Focusing on the issues that ail the economy under the Obama administration and their possible remedies, the book offers substantiated facts and rational arguments on each side, to promote true debate. Chapters on Obama's response to the financial crisis, regulated market, green economy, need for reform and more offer a true assessment of the problems at hand and propose a progressive alternative to each of the key issues, from foreclosures to entitlement reform. In addition, two appendices provide additional, in-depth information on the roots of the crisis and an economics primer accessible to the lay person. An engaging read, Making the Progressive Case will appeal to anyone interested in America's politics and economic future, and will help us move beyond the partisan quagmire to bring forth political change."--Publisher's website

13 editions published in 1980 in 3 languages and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Varieties of capitalism, varieties of approaches( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the emerging sub-discipline of comparative political economy is now rich in studies of different advanced capitalisms, it still lacks a systematic consideration of the organizing frameworks and methodologies underpinning those studies. This volume addresses this lack through a set of linked essays written from within mainstream economics, historical institutionalism, and radical scholarship of a Marxist kind. The essays gathered here build out from, and reflect upon, the two great debates currently shaping the analysis of advanced capitalism: the debates triggered by Hall and Soskice's Varieties of Capitalism and those triggered by Bob Brenner's article 'The Economics of Global Turbulence'. Varieties of Capitalism, Varieties of Approaches makes the case for a greater awareness of underlying theoretical issues in the design of empirical research, and demonstrates the value of exploring the interconnections between competing intellectual approaches. Its essays are written by major participants in the key debates in comparative political economy; and the entire collection is framed by an opening essay on the strengths and weaknesses of the various paradigms of explanation currently available in the field

Blair's war by David Coates( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 242 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
Reflections on the future of the Left( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the future for progressive politics in advanced capitalism? With its political fortunes so low, how might the Left move forward? These essays from leading left intellectuals--Dean Baker, Fred Block, David Coates, Hillary Wainwright, Colin Crouch, Wolfgang Streeck, and Leo Panitch--reflect on the scale and nature of the task that the Left now faces. The contributors, whose experiences stretch back to the headier days of 1968, consider what it is that they should pass on to a younger generation of thinkers and activists tasked with taking progressive politics forward today. Their views and opinions vary--some are optimistic, some pessimistic--but all offer searching insight into the task the Left now faces and what, especially if it was complicit in the neoliberal settlement it has left to draw on, from its intellectual heritage and practical experience to deal with its contemporary challenges. Akin to The Forward March of Labour Halted published some thirty years ago, these essays represent a major statement on the future for center-left politics and a frank appraisal of the Left's current capabilities to keep conservatism at bay and radical politics in the ascendancy.--
