British Growth Crisis by Peter Taylor-Gooby British Growth Crisis, Hardback (January 2015)

Britain remains mired in the most severe and prolonged economic crisis that it has faced since the 1930s.

This important volume written by a number of influential commentators seeks to provide some answers.

New Paradigms in Public Policy by Peter Taylor-Gooby New Paradigms in Public Policy, Hardback (August 2013)

This book reviews the policy implications of some of the most challenging developments in British society: climate change, ageing, greater ethnic and religious diversity, the debate about community and local area politics, democratisation, the international financial crisis, and the growth of popular disillusion with politics and politicians.

Double Crisis of the Welfare State and What We Can Do About it by Peter Taylor-Gooby Double Crisis of the Welfare State and What We Can Do About it, Hardback (April 2013)
