Government and economies in the postwar world economic policies and comparative performance, 1945-85 by Andrew Graham ( )
28 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The chance to begin anew seldom occurs. Yet the nearly complete breakdown of the world economy between 1939 and 1945, together with the dominant position of the United States at the end of the war, provided just this opportunity. A new international economic order was built on the ruins of the old. How this happened - and the role of government in economic performance - is the subject of this important and timely book. Written by political scientists, contemporary historians and economists, it includes ten country studies covering all the major industrialized nations in the West: the USA, U
The Blair effect 2001-5 ( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Tony Blair's strong start to his third term, with his role in capturing the Olympic Games for Britain, his statesman-like handling of the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on London, his promise of a new start to the European Union and his leadership of the G8 summit at Gleneagles, has brought his relatively lacklustre second term into sharp relief. The second term should have been the time when New Labour fulfilled its manifesto promises. So what changed between 2001 and 2005 and what was achieved? How far was Blair himself responsible, and what was Gordon Brown's influence? What was the impact of the Iraq war? And what of Blair's policy towards Europe? Anthony Seldon and Dennis Kavanagh gather together leading academics and journalists to provide an authoritative assessment of Blair's second term, including a review of New Labour in government from 1997 to the present"-- provided by publisher

The Blair effect by Anthony Seldon ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A collection of (reasonably) unpartisan commentaries on the first administration of Tony Blair as it approaches a General Election. The authors aim to demonstrate that it is possible to write contemporary history about even the most recent past in an accessible yet scrupulously objective manner. How much has changed since the landslide election victory of May 1997? What was prompting the changes, and to what extent were they the fruit of Number 10's intentions? How far might they have happened anyway? How effective has the Blair effect been? Peter Riddell, Vernon Bogdanor, Dennis Kavanagh and a host of other analysts pose these questions and do their best to answer them
