In Search of Civil Society by Nicholas Deakin

Book Description

Civil society as a concept is currently much discussed in the political arena and now frequently referred to in academic texts. But what does it mean in practice and how does it relate to more familiar ideas like voluntary action? This book explores the connections between the two, and provides a wide range of examples of situations in which civil society has provided an arena for voluntary association and action which has had a real impact on events at local, national and, latterly, the global level.

Beveridge and Voluntary Action in Britain and the Wider British World by Nicholas Deakin Beveridge and Voluntary Action in Britain and the Wider British World, Hardback (December 2010)

In 1948, Wiliam Beveridge's last major report, "Voluntary Action", was published. In this little remembered work, Beveridge, the father of the welfare state, sought out the middle ground between the state and the market. This book intends to re-evaluate and reassess the ideas contained within "Voluntary Action".

In Search of Civil Society by Nicholas Deakin In Search of Civil Society, Hardback (October 2001)

Civil society as a concept is currently much discussed in the political arena and now frequently referred to in academic texts. But what does it mean in practice and how does it relate to more familiar ideas like voluntary action? This book addresses this issue.

Contracting for Change by Nicholas Deakin Contracting for Change, Hardback (July 1997)

Sets out to examine the impact of contracts in three areas of the public service: health, social services, and other government activities. The authors compare and contrast local government, health, and social care services, arguing that these changes involve a fundamental break with past understandings of public services management.

Enterprise Culture and the Inner City by Nicholas Deakin Enterprise Culture and the Inner City, Hardback (May 1993)

Offers a vigorous and critical investigation of government policy for inner city regeneration during the 1980s and 90s, and in light of Canary Wharf, presents a credible prediction for the future (or lack of) of the inner city.
