Global Third Way Debate

Heftet / 2001 / Engelsk
The term 'third way' has become a widely accepted, if controversial, label understood by many modernizing social democrats to refer to the left's attempts at ideological and policy innovation. The debate that has arisen around these developments is a truly world-wide one, from the US and Europe through to Asia, Australasia and Latin America.

a This book widens the debate to worldwide issues.a Iain Dale, Bookseller Buyera s Guide a Anthony Giddens has been one of the most prominent participants in recent debates about the future of social democracy; his ideas have provided intellectual support for the new Labour project ... Whether one is sympathetic or sceptical [about the third way debate], this book provides an excellent starting point for understanding current developments in social--democratic thinking.a Times Higher Education Supplement a With an impressive range of international contributors, this book provides a real sense of context to what can, on occasion, be a depressingly narrow debate.a Mark Perryman, New Statesman a In a word, this book covers a lot ... Giddens has mined the richest corners of the fullest lodes. No collection is better illustrative of third way arguments ... The Global Third Way Debate is a premier state--of--the--art volume, an indispensable reference for students and citizens.a Millennium "It may be too early for an obituary for the third way, but Giddensa assessment of neoliberalism--too socially corrosive to provide a lasting political formula--might one day soon come in handy." Canadian Journal of Political Science "This excellent volume raises many important questions. It should be read and debated by anyone interested in working for a liveable planet." British Journal of Sociology "The book is a success...In this way the book serves as a useful introduction to some of the best recent on the future of progressive governance -- as a sort of intellectual cheese sampler, offering alot of small but tasty portions that, whet the appetite for more." Frank Cass Publishers "...the third way has become the only way...For this reason alone it is important that we shouldinform ourselves about it and here is no better way to do this than to read this book". Stephen Ryan, University of Ulster. "With so many high quality chapters, this book will undoubtedly prove valuable to any student or academic who is interested in current debates on social, environmental and economic policy, the welfare state and the more general relations between state and society in late modernity."
