The making of global capitalism : the political economy of American empire by Sam Gindin( Book )

24 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The all-encompassing embrace of world capitalism at the beginning of the twenty-first century was generally attributed to the superiority of competitive markets. Globalization had appeared to be the natural outcome of this unstoppable process. But today, with global markets roiling and increasingly reliant on state intervention to stay afloat, it has become clear that markets and states aren't straightforwardly opposing forces. In this groundbreaking work, Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin demonstrate the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state, including its role as an "informal empire" promoting free trade and capital movements. Through a powerful historical survey, they show how the US has superintended the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises
Social democracy & industrial militancy : the Labour Party, the trade unions, and incomes policy, 1945-1974 by Leo Panitch( Book )

26 editions published between 1976 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attempt to establish a 'new social contract' between the Government and the unions, with a view to stabilising the economy and restraining industrial militancy, emerged as a burning issues of contemporary British politics during the 1970s. This study uncovers the roots of this development in the incomes policies of successive post-war Governments, especially of the 1964-70 Labour Government, and traces the way in which wage restraint was secured from the unions, or imposed upon them, in the context of the attempted registration of the unions within the existing economic and political order. Professor Panitch concentrates on the crucial role of the Labour Party and shows how Labour's incomes policies, and industrial relations generally, have derived less from a concern with socialist economic planning than from the Party's 'integrative' ideology, its rejection of the concept of class struggle in favour of affecting a compromise between the different classes in British society

The end of parliamentary socialism : from New Left to New Labour by Leo Panitch( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This trenchant account of the last twenty-five years of the British Labour Party argues that Tony Blair's modernising tendency was profoundly mistaken in asserting that the only alternative to traditional social democracy and narrow parliamentarianism was an acceptance of neo-liberalism. In blaming the Labour left rather than the social-democratic right for the party's years in the electoral wilderness, the modernisers rejected the creativity and energy which the party's New Left had mobilised, and without which their own professed aim of democratic renewal was unlikely to be realised. In this new edition, the authors, in collaboration with David Coates, review the debate in light of the Blair Government's first three years in office."--Jacket
Renewing socialism : democracy, strategy, and imagination by Leo Panitch( Book )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Renewing Socialism examines the failures of socialism in the twentieth century and explores the nature of global capitalism, offering a vision of a reinvigorated socialism to ambitiously counter the current debilitating pessimism." "While democracy and equality remain the goals of socialism, new conditions require imaginative new strategies. Panitch stresses the need for re-founding, reorganizing and re-democratizing labour movements and calls for a change of focus from the accumulation of capital to the accumulation of capacities: political, economic, social, environmental and human."--Jacket
American empire and the political economy of global finance by Leo Panitch( Book )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The relationship between states and globalization is one of the burning questions of our time. Providing a lively critique of how international and comparative political economy misjudge the relationship between markets and states, this book demonstrates the American state's central place in today's world of globalized finance. While US military interventions draw most attention to the imperial nature of the American state, the highly original contributions here show how US power is embedded in the structures of global finance." "This book reveals the role the American state plays in the expansion of international financial markets and in managing the economic crises that emanate from them."--Jacket

12 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Different kind of state? : popular power and democratic administration by Gregory Albo( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A large factor in the appeal of neo-conservatism in the early 1980s was its sustained attack on the welfare state. Even those most dependent on public services were frustrated by a system that allowed them no say in decisions directly affecting their lives. A decade later, the alternative offered by the new right - free market competition - has only deepened the need for effective state assistance. The solution must be not in privatizing the public sector, but in making it more responsive; the real issue is not more state or less state, but rather a different kind of state." "How might those on the democratic left govern differently? How might political parties committed to the progressive reform of our political institutions design structures and processes that would enhance citizen participation, and at the same time maintain and increase democratic accountability? How might new administrations implement such a program? The twenty contributors to this book share the experiences they have gained in various contemporary political experiments and popular movements, in Canada, Great Britain, and the United States, that have attempted to expand citizen involvement and democratic administrative practices within the public sector."--Jacket

The globalization decade : a critical reader by Leo Panitch( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This pathbreaking analyses collected in this book, written as the globalization decade unfolded, grasp the radical nature of globalization in a way still unmatched by orthodox commentaries: not as a mere series of 'reforms' but as a worldwide transformation of all aspects of life to conform with capitalism's ruthless logic." "The Globalization Decade challenges conventional wisdom, both right and left. It is not a blueprint for an alternative world order but it shows the principles on which viable alternatives must be based: the restoration of democratic control over investment, and a radically new respect for the limits of the environment."--Jacket
In and out of crisis : the global financial meltdown and left alternatives by Leo Panitch( Book )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this groundbreaking study of the financial meltdown, renowned radical political economists lay bare the roots of the crisis in the inner logic of capitalism itself. Objective and detailed, this account provocatively challenges the call for a return to a largely mythical golden age of economic regulation as a check on finance capital. In addition, it deftly illuminates how the era of neoliberal free markets has been, in practice, under-girded by state intervention on a massive scale. Arguing for genuinely transformative alternatives to capitalism, and discussing how to build the collective c

Global capitalism and American empire by Leo Panitch( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unconcealed imperial face that the United States is now prepared to show to the world above all pertains to the increasing difficulties of managing a truly global informal empire. How to refashion all the states of the world so that they become at least minimally adequate for the administration of global order is now the central problem for the American state."--Jacket

The politics of the right by Leo Panitch( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and German and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today the left faces new challenges from political forces amassing on the radical right. The 52nd volume of the Socialist Register presents a serious calibration and a careful political mapping of these forces. It addresses pivotal questions on the reordering of the new right. These essays - very broad in terms of themes and places - speak to the global challenges the new right poses for the left at this historical moment. What is the nature of the right's populism, nationalism and militarism? What is the social base and organizational strength and range of far-right political forces? To what extent are they influencing mainstream parties and opinion? How have they penetrated state institutions? What role do state security services and police forces play? Does our political situation today require comparison with 1930s fascism? How should the left respond to defend democratic and human rights?
