Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Policy and Change in Thatcher's Britain presents an integrated analysis of the changing policy impacts of the Thatcher decade using various different aspects of critical social theory. The study first parallels the directions taken by successive Thatcher governments with the paths taken by critical social theorists in the 1980s. This analysis shows not only that critical social theory can inform the interpretation of Thatcherism, but also that Thatcherism made such demands on social theory as to force changes in the theoretical agenda. More detail follows in an explanation and analysis of the employment of policy-making and planning by the state apparatus. The stress here is on the necessity of looking beyond the immediate policy arena in search of how and why policy changes occur. Further essays illuminate the effects of policy changes in particular systematic or spatial areas. The concluding section comments more generally on economic and social change under Thatcher, both stressing the unevenness of development with respective emphasis on both spatial and gender divisions of labour.

Review:

The net result is that Britain in the early 1990s is a significantly more unequal society than it was ten years earlier, and indeed than it has been for several decades
From the concluding chapter
Allan Cochrane
This is a thought-provoking book....it provides an excellent way into key debates about social and political change in the 1980s, and offers a sound foundation for the debates of the 1990s.
International Journal of Urban & Regional Research
A Leyshon
...excellent collection of essays compiled by Cloke...gathering together an impressive set of commentators to analyse a range of policy arenas.
Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design
Fred Robinson, Department of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Durham
...Each of the 14 contributors offers a well-informed guide to different aspects of Thatcher's Britain... This is certainly a useful book and—in these recessionary times—it is worth saying that it is good value for money (even 'cost-effective', as a Thatcherite might say).

Anbieterinformationen

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
