Demystifying globalization ( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
Globalization has, within academic, political and business circles alike, become the buzz-word of the 1990s, conjuring an ever-growing diversity of associations, connotations and attendant mythologies. In this volume a distinguished array of international academics assess the contribution of the globalization thesis, in its various guises, to our understanding of social, political and economic change in contemporary societies. The authors cast a critical and, in large part, sceptical gaze over some of the often wildly exaggerated and wilfully extrapolated claims made in the name of globalization, whilst seeking to transcend the disciplinary shackles that have come to characterize, as they have come to limit, our understanding of the dynamic processes and mechanisms of globalization. They expose, challenge and demystify many of our intuitive assumptions about this complex and contested process, developing a distinctive 'third wave' perspective on the phenomena variously referred to as economic, political, social and cultural globalization.

Policy networks in British government ( Book )
5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide
Policy is not made in the electoral arena or in the gladiatorial confrontations of Parliament, but in the netherworld of committees, civil servants, professions, and interest groups. This collection explores the private world of public policy. It provides a survey of the literature on the concept of policy networks and demonstrates its importance for understanding specific policy areas. The case studies cover policy-making in agriculture, civil nuclear power, youth employment, smoking, heart disease, sea defences, information technology, and exchange rate policy. Finally the editors attempt an overall assessment of the utility of the concept, focusing on such questions as why networks change, which interests dominate and benefit from networks, and the consequences of the present system for representative democracy. To describe policy networks is not to condone political oligopoly. Britain has witnessed the substitution of private government for public accountability. The analysis of policy networks draws attention to this erosion of representative democracy and exposes the private government of Britain to public gaze.

Young people and politics in the UK : apathy or alienation by David Marsh ( Book )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 141 libraries worldwide
The Government and public debates tend to see young people as politically apathetic free-riders, taking the benefits of citizenship without voting. In this context, apathy is seen as an outcome of low political literacy or as resolvable through technocratic reforms of voting procedures. Thus, the Government aims to encourage participation by introducing compulsory citizenship lessons in schools and making voting easier. This book critically engages with these views, asking how young people themselves understand and live politics. Using an innovative methodology, it argues that young people live age, class, gender and ethnicity in ways that are political. Based on this broader understanding of politics, it concludes that young people are not apathetic but feel their interests and concerns are not addressed by politicians. Indeed, they are highly sensitive towards the limited nature of their political citizenship and this plays a key role in their disinclination to participate in mainstream politics.

Uncertainty ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
"Instead of offering an idealized or ennobled vision of humankind, modern art--an instrument of the tumultuous 20th century--communicates chaos, anxiety, and above all, uncertainty. In this program Matthew Collings contrasts the works of Pablo Picasso with the abstracts of Paul Klee and Piet Mondrian and the architecture of Le Corbusier; tells how the Nazis tried to eradicate modern art's uncertainties with some crushing certainties of their own; and shows how modern art's relationship with modern life changed--first with the rise of Abstract Expressionism, then with Pop art. The program also stretches into contemporary art to ask: What can we still believe in? And is Western civilization nearing its end?"--Container.
