English | 1 edition | October 27, 2006 | ISBN-10: 0745634125 | 208 pages | PDF | 18,1 Mb

Contending discourses underlie many of the worlds most intractable conflicts, producing misery and violence. This is especially true in the post-9/11 world. However, contending discourses can also open the way to greater dialogue in global civil society and across states and international organizations. This possibility holds even for the most murderous sorts of conflicts in deeply divided societies.
Interpreting the Labour Party: Approaches to Labour Politics and History

Interpreting the Labour Party: Approaches to Labour Politics and History (Critical Labour Movement Studies) by John Callaghan, Steve Fielding, Steve Ludlam
Publisher: Manchester University Press | Number Of Pages: 224 | Publication Date: 2004-04-03 | ISBN-10: 0719067197 | PDF | 1 Mb

This publication consists of 12 essays on the principal thinkers and schools of thought concerned with the political and historical development of the Labour Party and Labour movement. It is an examination of the major methodologies and approaches in Labour studies and a critical evaluation and appreciation of much of the most interesting scholarship in this area of study. The essays have been written by contributors who have devoted many years to the study of the Labour Party, the trade union movement and the various ideologies associated with them. The book begins with an in-depth analysis of how to study the Labour Party, and goes on to examine key periods in the development of the ideologies to which the party has subscribed. This includes the ideology on inter-war Labourism, the rival post-war perspectives on Labourism, the New Left, and the "contentious alliance" of unions with Labour. Key thinkers analysed include: Henry Pelling; Ross McKibbin; Ralph Miliband; Lewis Minkin; David Marquand; Perry Anderson; and Tom Nairn. Each chapter situates its subject matter in the context of a broader intellectual legacy, including the works of Sidney and Beatrice Webb, Theodore Rothstein, Stuart Hall and Samuel Beer, among others. This book should be of interest to undergraduate students of British politics and political theory and to academics concerned with Labour politics and history, trade union history and politics, research methodology and political analysis.

Key Concepts in Politics

Key Concepts in Politics

Key Concepts in Politics
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan | ISBN: 0333770951 | edition 2000 | CHM | 304 pages | 1,04 mb

Concepts are the "tools" with which we think, criticize, argue, explain and analyze. Political concepts are nothing less than the building blocks of political understanding: the political world means what our concepts tell us it means. But political concepts are notoriously slippery and subject to controversy. Indeed, political debate is often a debate about the correct use of political terms. This book provides an accessible and comprehensive guide to the major concepts encountered in political analysis. Each is defined clearly and fully, and its significance for political argument and practice is explored. The introduction explains how political concepts are used and why they are so often abused. The book is arranged thematically, in an accessible way, in order to be of use to students throughout their course of study, especially as a revision aid.
