Marxism and social science ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 351 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

Policy networks in British government by David Marsh( Book )
10 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 286 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
Postwar British politics in perspective by David Marsh( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 259 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

Young people and politics in the UK : apathy or alienation? by David Marsh( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member 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
