About this Item

212 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.5in.This book studies Social Democracy within the context of globalization. It questions both the argument over its unviability within the context and the accusations directed to it after 1980, such as that it has moved to the New Right stance and that it has experienced ruptures from its tradition, such as its acceptance of market economy and of the individual and breaking its ties with the working class. Against such criticisms this work argues that their understanding of Social Democracy arose from the shortages of their analysis which focuses merely either on party politics or on policies. Social Democracy however is more about values, orientations or convictions than a specific policy objective. This work therefore states that its examination (and what social democrats have to do) should also include its principles, such as democracy, progressiveness and social justice. By including its values, the book defines Social Democracy as a movement pursuing its principles within Capitalism. Such a definition presents the shortcomings of its criticismsaccusations and in turn the continuity within its tradition as well as its viability within the context of globalization. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783639133547

About this title

Synopsis:

This book studies Social Democracy within the context of globalization. It questions both the argument over its unviability within the context and the accusations directed to it after 1980, such as that it has moved to the New Right stance and that it has experienced ruptures from its tradition, such as its acceptance of market economy and of the individual and breaking its ties with the working class. Against such criticisms this work argues that their understanding of Social Democracy arose from the shortages of their analysis which focuses merely either on party politics or on policies. Social Democracy however is more about values, orientations or convictions than a specific policy objective. This work therefore states that its examination (and what social democrats have to do) should also include its principles, such as democracy, progressiveness and social justice. By including its values, the book defines Social Democracy as a movement pursuing its principles within Capitalism. Such a definition presents the shortcomings of its criticisms/accusations and in turn the continuity within its tradition as well as its viability within the context of globalization.
