British Growth Crisis by Colin Hay 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.

Institutional Crisis in 21st Century Britain by Colin Hay Institutional Crisis in 21st Century Britain, Hardback (April 2014)

In 21st century Britain, a 'perfect storm' seems to have engulfed many of its institutions. This book is the first wholesale consideration of the crisis of legitimacy that has taken root in Britain's key institutions and explores the crisis across them to determine if a set of shared underlying pathologies exist to create this collective crisis.
