    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 49.99

    Das Ende des Staates zu verkünden hat im politischen und sozialwissenschaftlichen Diskurs Tradition, und so gilt staatliches Handeln seit der enttäuschten Planungseuphorie der 1970er Jahre als Synonym für Unzulänglichkeit und Ineffektivität. Mit dem Siegeszug der neoliberalen Ideologie hat sich der Ton weiter verschärft. In der aktuellen Globalisierungsdebatte... more...

  • The Modern Stateby Christopher Pierson

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 57.95

Yet most of us would struggle to say... more...
