For the first two thirds of the twentieth century, British government was among the most stable in the world. In the last three decades it has been a leader in innovation and its governing system has been in constant turmoil. This book, by one of Britain's leading political scientists, explains this transformation and traces its consequences. It will be essential reading for all those interested in British political development and, in particular, the central role of regulation in the modern state.

About the Author:

Michael Moran studied Politics, Economics and Mathematics for his first degree at the University of Lancaster, graduating in 1967. He did his graduate work in the Department of Government at the University of Essex, 1967-70, and was awarded his PhD from Essex in 1975. From 1970 to 1979 he
lectured in the Department of Social Science at Manchester Polytechnic (now the Manchester Metropolitan University.) Since 1979 he has worked at the University of Manchester. He became Professor of Government in 1990, and has held the WJM Mackenzie Chair of Government since 2000. Moran's work has
been concerned with comparative public policy, the study of regulation and the study of modern British politics.

Review:


"The contribution of the book goes beyond applying sociocultural lenses to an examination of the relationship between regulators and regulatees. Its interpretation and exploration of within-government control in terms of regulation opens a new agenda for public administration research. In addition, it invites readers to broaden their thinking about regulation beyond the narrow contexts of privatization and government-business relationships. Last, by showing variance in regulation of different sectors within the same country, it questions the simplistic tendencies to think of regulation in terms of coherent national styles and of overarching and global trends."--Comparative Politics


"Drawing on experienced scholarly observation, Michael Moran has written a strikingly critical evaluation of Britian's recent development of state regulatory authority.... His context is impressively comparative, notably with respect to the United States, and he makes good use of a considerable body of relevant American scholarly literature. Moreover, he is well aware of the impact of globalization and Europeanization.... The book's brevity... does not diminish the significance of the author's richly suggestive, interesting, and cogent thesis."--Perspectives on Politics

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. For the first two thirds of the twentieth century, British government was among the most stable in the advanced industrial world. In the last three decades, the governing arrangements have been in turmoil and the country has been a pioneer in economic reform, and in public sector change. In this book, Michael Moran examines and explains the contrast between these two epochs. What turned Britain into a laboratory of political innovation? Britain became a formaldemocracy at the start of the twentieth century but the practice of government remained oligarchic. From the 1970s this oligarchy collapsed under the pressure of economic crisis. The British regulatory state is being constructed in its place. Moran challenges the prevailing view that this new state isliberal or decentralizing. Instead he argues that it is a new, threatening kind of interventionist state which is colonizing, dominating, and centralizing hitherto independent domains of civil society. The book is essential reading for all those interested in British political development and in the nature and impact of regulation. Seller Inventory # AAV9780199219216
