Hard choices : social democracy in the twenty-first century by Christopher Pierson( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the twenty-first century dawned, social democratic parties across Europe and beyond found themselves newly, and rather surprisingly, in the ascendant. Britain's New Labour was only the most spectacular in a whole series of political restorations. For many, this renewal only became possible when 'modernizing' social democratic parties jettisoned their old ideological and institutional baggages, setting off down a 'third way' that rejected the outmoded idea of both left and right. The argument of Hard Choices is that this view is doubly misleading: it misrepresents the past and misunderstands the present."--Jacket

Just property. Volume two : Enlightenment, revolution, and history by Christopher Pierson( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Property remains the bedrock of the societies we all inhabit. It underpins our core institutions - including families, states and economies - and it is the medium through which the intensifying politics of inequality is played out. There is plenty of evidence that its importance is increasing in a world of growing wealth inequality and depletion of natural resources. Volume two of 'Just Property' traces the development of ideas about property in the Western world from the early eighteenth century, through the Enlightenment and the experience of the French Revolution, to the critical stance of socialists and anarchists in the nineteenth century. It ranges across the thought of Bernard Mandeville, David Hume, Adam Smith, Voltaire, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, the Abbe de Sieyes, Burke, Wollstonecraft, Charles Fourier, Karl Marx, Proudhon and Peter Kropotkin. Many themes persist from an earlier period, as does the influence of Christianity and the Roman Law but there are also many innovations. In general, the authority of God and the natural law recedes and the themes of utility and securing general welfare became more prominent. 00
