This innovative book provides an essential historical perspective on the boundaries of the state in modern Britain. At a time of intense debate about the state, the collection of interdisciplinary studies gathered here emphasizes the sheer variety of public involvement in British life, the ebb and flow of that involvement and its dynamics, and the wider implications this has for civil society and intellectual life. These new essays contribute to current debates not only by providing a historical analysis but also by looking to future developments.

From the Back Cover:

This innovative book provides an essential historical perspective on the boundaries of the state in modern Britain. At a time of intense debate about the state, the writers of these interdisciplinary studies are unimpressed by the apparent 'rise' of the stage before 1979 and its supposed 'decline' in the wake of Thatcherism.

"An excellent work, recommended for upper-division undergraduates through faculty." H. Steck, Choice

"This collection is strong on the state as a concept and as a deliverer(or withholder)of services....The general topic is bound to be a popular one at century's end. Its treatment here is a good start." Albion

"...this collection remains a valuable summary of issues centering around the scope of central power in modern Britain. The general topic is bound to be a popular one at century's end. its treatment here is a good start." James B. Christoph, Albion

"This volume provides seventeen historical and interpretative essays exploring the expansion and contraction fo teh British State's involvement in people's lives. The essays are informative, providing a wealth of insight, history and references." Joel Wolfe, British Politics Group Newsletter
