In Search of Stability by Charles S. Maier

Book Description

In Search of Stability: Explorations in Historical Political Economy ponders the issue of how Western industrial societies overcame major challenges to political and economic stability in the twentieth century. Successive essays ask: what ideological messages did American influence transmit to Europe after World War I, then again after World War II? Did Nazis and Italian fascists share an economic ideology or impose a unique economic system in the interwar period and during World War II? How do their accomplishments stack up comparatively against those of the liberal democracies? After 1945, what was the relationship between concepts of productivity and class division? How have the major experiences of twentieth-century inflation arisen out of class and interest-group rivalry? Most generally, what has been the representation of interests in capitalist political economies?

Books By Author Charles S. Maier

Once Within Borders by Charles S. Maier Once Within Borders, Hardback (October 2016)

At a time when the technologies of globalization are eroding barriers to communication, transportation, and trade, Charles Maier explores the fitful evolution of territories politically bounded regions whose borders define the jurisdiction of laws and the movement of peoples as a worldwide practice of human societies.

Recasting Bourgeois Europe by Charles S. Maier Recasting Bourgeois Europe, Paperback (November 2015)

"One of Princeton University Press's Notable Centenary Titles"--Page 4 of cover.

Leviathan 2.0 by Charles S. Maier Leviathan 2.0, Paperback (April 2014)

Thomas Hobbes laid the theoretical groundwork of the nation-state in Leviathan, his tough-minded 1651 treatise. Charles Maier's Leviathan 2.0 updates this classic to explain how modern statehood took shape between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, before it unraveled into the political uncertainty that persists today.

Shock of the Global by Charles S. Maier Shock of the Global, Paperback (September 2011)

From the vantage point of the United States or Western Europe, the 1970s was a time of troubles: economic 'stagflation,' political scandal, and global turmoil. This title examines the large-scale structural upheaval of the 1970s by transcending the standard frameworks of national borders and superpower relations.
