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.

The Great Financial Crisis In Finland And Sweden from the Author: Lars Jonung. The Nordic financial crisis had it all: a botched liberalization, a huge boom followed by an even bigger bust, massive taxpayer-financed bailouts and, finally, deep long-run gains. The first-class team of scholars mobilized in this book convincingly tell a story that should be carefully studied by economists, bankers and policymakers. After this book, no one should be able to say: If we only knew ! Charles Wyplosz, Graduate Institute of International Studies, Geneva, Switzerland The financial crisis in Scandinavia in the early 1990s was a forerunner of the later world-wide crisis in 2007/8. Although the initial causation was different, the impact on their banks, though more localised, was just as severe. So we can benefit, and already policymakers have done so, from learning the lessons in this book on how to restore shattered banking systems to health. For this we owe a debt of gratitude to the editors, who have put together a series of key papers that emerged from a much larger exercise on the crisis that was earlier reported in four volumes in Swedish and Finnish. Amongst the many studies on current and past financial crises, this is a classic must-read . Charles A.E. Goodhart, London School of Economics, UK The Nordic experience with financial crisis resolution could not be more timely. Everyone cites it as an example of how it should be done , but rarely does one find careful and detailed analysis. Now policymakers and others searching for guidance will know where to look. Barry Eichengreen, University of California, Berkeley, US Following World War II, Nordic countries were commonly regarded as successful and stable economies. This perception was, however, shattered in the early 1990s when Finland and Sweden encountered severe financial crises. Here, the authors explore the symptoms of financial crisis decreasing real income, soaring unemployment and exploding public deficits and their devastating effects. The book compares and contrasts the experiences of Finland and Sweden, then adopts an international perspective, encompassing the experiences of Asia, Latin America, Denmark and Norway. Lessons from the 1990s crisis are drawn, and possible solutions prescribed. The conclusion is that long-term effects of financial crises financial liberalization and integration are not as dramatic as the short-term effects, but may prove to be of greater importance over time. Only the future will show whether these long-term benefits will balance or even outweigh the enormous short-term costs of the crises. Highly relevant to the current international financial crisis currently afflicting the world economy, this timely book will prove invaluable to economists and other social scientists with a general interest in financial crises, and to those with a more specific interest in the evolution and models of Scandinavian economies.
