The Oxford Handbook of the Welfare State is the authoritative and definitive guide to the contemporary welfare state. In a volume consisting of nearly fifty newly-written chapters, a broad range of the world's leading scholars offer a comprehensive account of everything one needs to know about the modern welfare state. The book is divided into eight sections. It opens with three chapters that evaluate the philosophical case for (and against) the welfare state. Surveys of the welfare state 's history and of the approaches taken to its study are followed by four extended sections, running to some thirty-five chapters in all, which offer a comprehensive and in-depth survey of our current state of knowledge across the whole range of issues that the welfare state embraces. The first of these sections looks at inputs and actors (including the roles of parties, unions, and employers), the impact of gender and religion, patterns of migration and a changing public opinion, the role of international organisations and the impact of globalisation. The next two sections cover policy inputs (in areas such as pensions, health care, disability, care of the elderly, unemployment, and labour market activation) and their outcomes (in terms of inequality and poverty, macroeconomic performance, and retrenchment). The seventh section consists of seven chapters which survey welfare state experience around the globe (and not just within the OECD). Two final chapters consider questions about the global future of the welfare state. The individual chapters of the Handbook are written in an informed but accessible way by leading researchers in their respective fields giving the reader an excellent and truly up-to-date knowledge of the area under discussion. Taken together, they constitute a comprehensive compendium of all that is best in contemporary welfare state research and a unique guide to what is happening now in this most crucial and contested area of social and political development.

Goodbye to All That is an account of Bryan Gould's lifelong passion for Britain combined with a scathing condemnation of the failures of Socialism to fulfil the promise of the early 1960s. As a young MP and, later, as a prominent member of the Shadow Cabinet, Gould has always fought for change. A committed anti-federalist and a consistent critic of Labour's embrace of monetarism under Callaghan and Healey, he believes that Labour wasted its opportunities to propose a radical economic and social alternative to the politics of the establishment.

"As its first and most daring theorist, and later its most penetrating left-wing critic, Leon Trotsky will for ever be associated with the fate of the Russian Revolution. Yet little of real substance has ever been written about his genuine but unfinished contribution to Marxist thought in the twentieth century. This volume seeks to fill that vacuum through a critical assessment of his views on political economy, the party, revolution, philosophy and culture. This book also contains a number of brief but incisive essays on the turbulent history of the Left Opposition, as well as a lively and iconoclastic discussion of the way his ideas have been interpreted - and misinterpreted - by both friends and enemies alike. The last section of the volume brings to the English-speaking world previously untranslated material by Trotsky on his mature reflections on the world economy in the interwar period. Neither crude polemic nor simple-minded hagiography, The Ideas of Leon Trotsky fills a major gap in our understanding of one of the most controversial thinkers of our age."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The contributions engage with literary, political and cultural practices in America, past and present, set out to transcend long established paradigms of an American "exceptionalism" or critical approaches that hold on to the notion of a core Americanness as a single nationalist mythology of the United States. "America" then functions as a signifier that is configured in and by its presence outside and beyond the national borders of the United States of America. The overall thrust of our volume draws upon concepts of the "New American Studies," especially "Post-Nationalist American Studies."
