Class, power and the state in capitalist society : essays on Ralph Miliband by P Wetherly( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ralph Miliband was a leading contributor to the development of Marxist political theory in the late twentieth century, particularly on the state, democracy, class analysis and socialist politics. His writings remain highly influential in twenty-first century social and political theory. Class, Power and the State in Capitalist Society brings together, for the first time, a collection of essays to re-examine and evaluate the central themes in Miliband's work. The editors' introduction traces the development of Miliband's thought and identifies key themes and debates. The essays that follow deal with the New Left, Labourism, the potential for a new socialist organization, the ₁instrumentalist₂ theory of the state, the debate with Poulantzas, the 'withering away' of the state, American exceptionalism, and policy making. The book finishes with a critical reflection on the issues raised in the collection

Remaking the postwar world economy : Robot and British policy in the 1950s by Peter Burnham( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Peter Burnham presents a detailed, archive-based account of key aspects of international monetary relations in the 1950s focusing specifically on Anglo-American policy surrounding the restoration of sterling convertibility. He revises many views which have been accepted as orthodoxy; in particular pointing out how the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944 and its attendant institutions did not begin to operate until after 1958. At the heart of the book is the claim that in the midst of economic crisis in February 1952, the British government had a unique opportunity (discussed under the codename Operation Robot) to take a revolutionary step in the external field to transform the international political economy through the abolition of the fixed rate system, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Payments Union and top restructure Britain's domestic economy to tackle longstanding productivity, export and labour market problems. The book explores the argument that had Robot been implemented Britain might have maintained its economic independence and not suffered the slow 'creeping paralysis' that it endured for the next twenty-five years
