The political economy of European welfare capitalism by Colin Hay ( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this state-of-the-art work, Colin Hay and Daniel Wincott reassess welfare provision across the whole of Europe - East, West and Central - and at the national and EU level. The book challenges much conventional wisdom about the welfare state, including the widely accepted notion of a 'golden age' of welfare, the idea of a challenge posed by globalization, and the notion of the welfare state as a burden on competitiveness and a drain on economic performance. The authors put forward an alternative analysis of European welfare capitalism which highlights the importance of European economic integration, domestic political dynamics and demographic change in determining welfare trajectories. They conclude with a compelling account of the challenges to which European welfare states must respond if they are to survive in the new era of public austerity

The ideas debate in international and European studies : towards a cartography and critical assessment by Andreas Gofas ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We contend that this tendency along with the limitations of the prevailing human conception of causality, and associated epistemological polemic between causal and constitutive logics, continue to plague almost all of the literature that strives to accord an explanatory role to ideas. In trying to move beyond the current vogue for epistemological polemic, we argue that the incommensurability thesis between causal and constitutive logics is only credible in the context of a narrow, human, conception of causation. If we reject this in favor of a more inclusive (and ontologically realist) understanding then it is perfectly possible to chart the causal significance of constitutive processes and reconstrue the explanatory role of ideas as causally constitutive
