Mafia Peasants And Great Estates from the Author: Pino Arlacchi. The nature of traditional Mediterranean societies and the effect on them brought about in the twentieth century, has long been debated; but in general stem from an assumption of the relatively homogenous nature of traditional peasant society. Pino Arlacchi demolishes that assumption by demonstrating that within the Italian region of Calabria there existed not one but a range of 'traditional' societies.

Great Figures In The Labour Movement from the Author: J. N. Evans. Great Figures in the Labour Movement is a historical account of ten leading persons involved in the British Labor Movement. The book describes great personalities of the labor movement and their contributions to the movement. The ideas of Robert Owen can be considered Utopian but he makes some Socialist dogmas practicable in British industry. William Morris adds beauty and art to the Socialist Movement. The founder of the Labor Party, Keir Hardie, leads the common worker out from eternal bondage. If there are thinkers and idealists, Tom Mann is considered an agitator; his parliament is in the factories and street corners. The book also gives credence to Beatrice and Sydney Webb, who believe that change is possible through political and social opportunism or what is today known as influence or lobbying. George Lansbury is the propagandist for Socialism. His work on the Poor Law has improved the living conditions of the poor, and becomes a personification of the ideals of the Labor Party. Amidst all such greatness, the book describes a man synonymous with treachery to the Labor Movement—Ramsay Macdonald. He sacrifices his principles to get adulations of greatness. Clement Attlee becomes the man who can steer the Labor Movement in the center, between those who want the Socialist rebels to fail and those who want the rebels to succeed. Herbert Morrison is known as the ""Labor's apostle to the Middle Classes,"" while Aneurin Bevan is considered as a statesman. English politicians and political science and history students will find this book entertaining and informative.

Globalization And Labour from the Author: Ronaldo Munck. Intellectual fashion currently focuses on us as consumers, but the world of production and services still needs us as workers. While globalisation has, in part, been driven over the past two decades by the transnational corporations‘ search for cheap labour in new regions of the South, scholarly research and the mass media have paid remarkably little attention to the consequent changes that are happening in the world of work. This book is the first to deal comprehensively and analytically with labour‘s response to globalisation. It provides a critical overview of the main challenges facing workers and trade unions worldwide. Its author argues that what may be described as the national period in labour history is decisively over. Now the labour movement is itself acting increasingly in a transnational manner. This holds out the hope of its playing a major role in the social regulation of a global economic system which is largely out of control.The author explains how globalisation is foisting flexibilisation and feminisation on working people, but in the process also making them conscious of their transnational links. The ‘old‘ internationalism of the trade union movement is now showing signs of developing into a ‘new‘ internationalism where workers develop a sense of common interest and new ways of organizing that transcend national boundaries. Drawing his evidence from what is happening to workers and trade unions in a wide range of countries in both the industrialized North and the developing South, Professor Ronaldo Munck suggests that we may be on the brink of a new version of what Karl Polanyi, many years ago, strikingly called ‘the great transformation‘. The implications for workers, trade unions and their transnational corporate employers could be profound.

Blue Labour from the Author: Ian Geary. Following Labour’s defeat at the polls in 2015, and at time when the Party is attempting to redefine its meaning, values and even identity, there is an urgent need for new thinking. Most people agree that a fresh start is required. But in which direction should Labour turn? A crucial conversation is beginning, and it is in this fluid and volatile context that Blue Labour ideas could make a decisive difference. Seeking to move beyond the centrist pragmatism of both Blair and Cameron, and attempting to inject into politics a newfound passion and significance with which people can truly engage, this essential work speaks to the needs of diverse communities across the country. Critiquing the dominance in Britain of a social-cultural liberalism linked to the left and a free-market liberalism associated with the right, Blue Labour blends a ‘progressive’ commitment to greater economic equality with a more ‘conservative’ disposition emphasising personal loyalty, family, community and locality. It is the manifesto of a vital new force in politics: one that could define the thinking of the next generation and beyond.
