In and out of crisis the global financial meltdown and left alternatives by Leo Panitch( )
10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 994 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this groundbreaking study of the financial meltdown, renowned radical political economists lay bare the roots of the crisis in the inner logic of capitalism itself. Objective and detailed, this account provocatively challenges the call for a return to a largely mythical golden age of economic regulation as a check on finance capital. In addition, it deftly illuminates how the era of neoliberal free markets has been, in practice, under-girded by state intervention on a massive scale. Arguing for genuinely transformative alternatives to capitalism, and discussing how to build the collective c
The making of global capitalism : the political economy of American empire by Sam Gindin( Book )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The all-encompassing embrace of world capitalism at the beginning of the twenty-first century was generally attributed to the superiority of competitive markets. Globalization had appeared to be the natural outcome of this unstoppable process. But today, with global markets roiling and increasingly reliant on state intervention to stay afloat, it has become clear that markets and states aren't straightforwardly opposing forces. In this groundbreaking work, Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin demonstrate the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state, including its role as an "informal empire" promoting free trade and capital movements. Through a powerful historical survey, they show how the US has superintended the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises. -- Jacket

The end of parliamentary socialism : from New Left to New Labour by Leo Panitch( Book )
17 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This trenchant account of the last twenty-five years of the British Labour Party argues that Tony Blair's modernising tendency was profoundly mistaken in asserting that the only alternative to traditional social democracy and narrow parliamentarianism was an acceptance of neo-liberalism. In blaming the Labour left rather than the social-democratic right for the party's years in the electoral wilderness, the modernisers rejected the creativity and energy which the party's New Left had mobilised, and without which their own professed aim of democratic renewal was unlikely to be realised. In this new edition, the authors, in collaboration with David Coates, review the debate in light of the Blair Government's first three years in office."--BOOK JACKET
American empire and the political economy of global finance by L Panitch( Book )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The relationship between states and globalization is one of the burning questions of our time. Providing a lively critique of how international and comparative political economy misjudge the relationship between markets and states, this book demonstrates the American state's central place in today's world of globalized finance. While US military interventions draw most attention to the imperial nature of the American state, the highly original contributions here show how US power is embedded in the structures of global finance." "This book reveals the role the American state plays in the expansion of international financial markets and in managing the economic crises that emanate from them."--BOOK JACKET

A Different kind of state? : popular power and democratic administration by Gregory Albo( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A large factor in the appeal of neo-conservatism in the early 1980s was its sustained attack on the welfare state. Even those most dependent on public services were frustrated by a system that allowed them no say in decisions directly affecting their lives. A decade later, the alternative offered by the new right - free market competition - has only deepened the need for effective state assistance. The solution must be not in privatizing the public sector, but in making it more responsive; the real issue is not more state or less state, but rather a different kind of state." "How might those on the democratic left govern differently? How might political parties committed to the progressive reform of our political institutions design structures and processes that would enhance citizen participation, and at the same time maintain and increase democratic accountability? How might new administrations implement such a program? The twenty contributors to this book share the experiences they have gained in various contemporary political experiments and popular movements, in Canada, Great Britain, and the United States, that have attempted to expand citizen involvement and democratic administrative practices within the public sector."--BOOK JACKET

The globalization decade : a critical reader ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This pathbreaking analyses collected in this book, written as the globalization decade unfolded, grasp the radical nature of globalization in a way still unmatched by orthodox commentaries: not as a mere series of 'reforms' but as a worldwide transformation of all aspects of life to conform with capitalism's ruthless logic." "The Globalization Decade challenges conventional wisdom, both right and left. It is not a blueprint for an alternative world order but it shows the principles on which viable alternatives must be based: the restoration of democratic control over investment, and a radically new respect for the limits of the environment."--BOOK JACKET
