9781861348418: Liberty, equality, fraternity

Paul Spicker's new book takes the three founding principles of the French Revolution - Liberty, Equality, Fraternity - and examines how they relate to social policy today. The book considers the political and moral dimensions of a wide range of social policies, and offers a different way of thinking about each subject from the way it is usually analysed. The book is in three main parts, one part devoted to Liberty, Equality and Fraternity in turn. Each part explores the elements and dimensions of the key concept, its application to policy, its interrelationship with the other two principles, and how policies have developed to promote the principle in society. The conclusion outlines three models of radical politics, based on the main concepts. Liberty, equality, fraternity is an original, thought-provoking book, addressing perennial themes with many topical examples drawn from policy in practice, and offering distinctive insights into socialist and radical thinking.

About the Author:

Paul Spicker, Centre for Public Policy & Management, The Robert Gordon University

Review:

This book will prove to be an essential text for teachers and students of social policy. Professor Spicker analyses the complex issues of his subject matter with clarity, cogency and brevity and sets out, with commendable even-handedness, the dilemmas of choice that policy makers confront in the world of practical politics. The clarity of his exposition makes Liberty, equality, fraternity a pleasure to read. Robert Pinker, Emeritus Professor of Social Administration, London School of Economics and Political Science

With 'Liberty, Equality, Fraternity' Spicker has eloquently reiterated the moral justification for the prescence of the state in the social policy domain. Journal of Social Policy, 2008.
