New Politics of Unemployment by Hugh Compston
Book DescriptionThe problem of mass unemployment in western Europe has persisted since the early 1980s. Clearly the policies implemented by national governments and the EU have not been successful in adequately tackling this important social, economic and political issue. The New Politics of Unemployment provides a thorough comparative analysis of the present situation. It looks at how the orthodox unemployment policies of contemporary governments have failed and what new policies might be introduced. A number of radical unemployment policies, from Germany, France, Italy, Britain, Spain, Denmark, Norway, Switzerland and the EU, are outlined. These are investigated with a view to identifying the conditions under which they might become standard components of national and EU strategies to bring down unemployment. This book is the first comparative study of the politics of policy innovation in the area of unemployment. It will be an important addition to the literature of European public policy and important reading for students of comparative European politics and economics.

Climate Change and Political Strategy, Paperback (December 2011)
This title analyses the nature of climate policy politics in affluent democracies from a number of theoretical angles. It has been written to improve our understanding of which political strategies would be likely to enable governments to make deep cuts in emissions while avoiding significant political damage.
Policy Networks and Policy Change, Hardback (September 2009)
This study applies policy network theory to major technological, economic, environmental and social trends to generate propositions about the future of public policy. Among the findings are that we should expect more business-friendly policies, more intrusive law enforcement, more women-friendly policies, and stronger climate policies.
Turning Down the Heat, Paperback (October 2008)» View all books by Hugh Compston
This study analyses the politics of climate policy in a range of affluent democracies and at EU level in order to identify political strategies that would make it easier for governments to make major cuts in greenhouse gas emissions without sustaining significant political damage.
