Marxism and social science( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Has Marxism ceased to be part of our political present and future? Has its theory or doctrine anything to contribute to our understanding of the new millennium? In these original, commissioned essays, the contributors argue that Marxism continues as a living tradition. They show how it still engages with other theoretical positions, how it has evolved in response to both these engagements and contemporary world changes, and they assess its relevance and contribution to modern social science."--Jacket
Demystifying globalization by Colin Hay( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume 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 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

Postwar British politics in perspective( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing an engagement with late-1990s perspectives on the development of the British State in the post-war period, this text challenges many of the well-established orthodoxies. It focuses on conceptions of consensus, evolution and transformation, continuity and discontinuity in presenting an account of social, political and economic change in the post-war years. The book offers a perspective on the development of the British state and of British Politics today. In doing so, it represents a contribution to existing debates, demonstrating to students the highly contested nature of political change in the post-war years. The book, to be published at a crucial moment in the evolution of the British state, will provide an autopsy of an era of Conservative dominance couched in the broader context of the post-war years
Policy networks in British government by David Marsh( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 271 WorldCat member 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
Comparing policy networks by David Marsh( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young people and politics in the UK : apathy or alienation? by David Marsh( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most studies of political participation among young people focus on formal political arenas and conclude that young people are politically apathetic. In contrast, this book aims to establish how young people understand and live politics, using innovative research methods. As such, it treats age, class, gender and ethnicity as political 'lived experiences'. It concludes that young people are alienated, rather than apathetic, and that their interests and concerns are rarely addressed within mainstream political institutions

Europe's deadlock : how the euro crisis could be solved, and why it won't happen by David Marsh( Book )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This short, fiercely argued book explains how five years of continuous crisis management not only have failed to resolve the Eurozone's problems but have actually made things worse. While austerity-wracked nations descend into misery and resentment, creditor countries fear that they will be forced to subsidize their weaker brethren indefinitely. Constructive dialogue has collapsed as European decision making descends into terrified paralysis, and the potential paths out of the impasse are blocked by indecision and incompetence at the top.As voters in Greece and Italy rebel against externally imposed hardship, and the sums needed to bail out failed economies reach ever more staggering proportions, the contradictions at the heart of the European project are becoming more and more obvious. Marsh warns that the current succession of complex technical fixes cannot sustain the Eurozone on life support indefinitely. Radical solutions are on offer, but without leaders who are strong and principled enough to push them through, Europe risks a depressing future of permanent decline"--publisher's description
