Altered states : postmodernism, politics, culture( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Altered States looks back at the election of 1992 in the light of postmodern political theory and highlights some of the lessons to be learnt from that defeat. The contributors consider where the left is situated now, how the theoretical structures of postmodernism can be used to reassess that position, and suggest ways of forecasting the future. Wide-ranging and polemical, Altered States rethinks the tenets of socialism, taking into account the globalisation of the media, diversity and identity and the new 'city-states', in a collection which both centres current debate and takes the discussion forward, laying a ground plan for a new and radical democracy
The Blair agenda( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Blair Agenda examines in detail the enduring legacy of Thatcherism, a legacy that has played a central role in determining the parameters of new Labour's policy debates. Recounting past histories of Labourist modernisation, contributors analyse the model for transformation which Tony Blair has offered his party, and the redefinition of the labels 'left' and 'right' which this process has forced upon us."--BOOK JACKET. "Drawing on a wide range of critical theories The Blair Agenda focuses on the key ideological themes that Tony Blair has highlighted since becoming party leader - ethics and socialism, social justice and community, nationhood and the 'young country'. Do these themes amount to something more than just a brilliant election-winning strategy? In a collection which foregrounds the need for a renewal of intellectual life, the generational, constitutional and cultural tensions that might offset the ambitions of a Blair government are addressed, in a context both of thoughtful realism, and creative optimism."--Jacket
Why the Olympics aren't good for us, and how they can be by Mark Perryman( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Presents a sharply critical take on the way the Games have been organized and an imaginative blueprint for how they could be improved ... [Olympic] organisers insist that the lasting value of the facilities built, the tourism the Games will attract, and the popular participation in sport they will promote, all make the spending of billions of pounds of public money an excellent investment. Such claims have been greeted with near unanimous agreement across mainstream British politics and the media. But ... Economists question whether the Olympics will provide the kind of economic regeneration London's East End has been promised. Sports coaches doubt the linkage often made between Gold medal successes and raising rates of popular participation in sport. And the tourism industry has produced reports showing that previous host cities have experienced an overall fall in visitors and their spending during Olympic years. [Perryman's] proposals include: Extending the games from a single host city to an entire country, or even group of countries; using existing stadia with greater spectator capacity than many of the purpose built facilities; expanding competitions held outside of stadia altogether, with more road, cross-country and open water races; increasing the number of events based on sports like running and boxing where international participation is widespread, and reducing the number of those, such as rowing, fencing and equestrianism, where few countries have the facilities to compete; and shifting the onus of the games from corporate sponsorship to the involvement of community and volunteer groups."--Publisher's website

The Corbyn effect( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Labour's performance in the June 2017 General Election came as a surprise to almost everyone. Few, from the most committed supporters of Jeremy Corbyn to seasoned political commentators, expected the Labour vote share to rise so dramatically and seats to be won with such substantial swings. The Corbyn Effect is the first serious attempt to understand this exciting new phenomenon in British politics. In specially-commissioned essays, writers, academics and activists from across political generations explore the meaning, limitations and potential of Corbynism. How has Corbyn changed the Labour Party? Is his support inside and outside the party likely to last? What can we expect a Corbyn government to achieve? It was previously widely accepted as fact that a left-wing Labour leader could enjoy popular support from the party membership, but not from the voting public. And it was also previously assumed that this electorate was too wedded to the appeal of an austerity-driven, low-tax economy and small state, to vote for left-wing policies. The Corbyn Effect offers a careful and original analysis of the new shifts in this system of ideas

1966 and not all that by Mark Perryman( )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A unique 50th anniversary collection of superlative writing and new football thinking. A first-ever oral history of '66 combined with match reports provided by writers from each of the countries England played, create a highly original view of the tournament - how the fans watched the games, the stadia, the newspaper and TV reporting are each revisited. The politics, music and fashion of '66 are examined too, exploring the forces of fan resistance in England and Germany that have found common cause in opposition to the corporate take over of the game, as well as the entirely new ranking system that calculates England's fall, and occasional rise, from 1966 to 2016, showing who has overtaken England and why
London 2012 : how was it for us?( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics will be the biggest single sporting event in the UK in our lifetimes. The memories of that Summer of sport will remain with us forever, but what did those four weeks tell us about ourselves, our society's values and its possibilities? This collection of critical reflections is not anti-Olympics nor against sport. The writers instead imaginatively address the reality of the Games' impact, question what the ceremonies and Team GB represented, and deconstruct the organisers' claims of economic regeneration and boosting participation. This an essential and exciting read for all who understand and appreciate that London 2012 meant something, but are unsure what. Contributors include world-class experts in Olympism, writers and journalists who reported on and were inspired by the Games, social and cultural critics, sports policy consultants and sport campaigners
