Description - Governance, Industry and Labour Markets in Britain and France by Robert Salais
This volume brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to provide an analytical and historical overview of how state policy has affected established economic and labour market systems in France and Britain. The contributors to this book explore questions such as: how "dirigiste" was the French state in reality; why was state intervention more acceptable in France than in Britain?; and how do the differences in state intervention help to explain the respective economic performances of the two countries since World War II? The book draws on primary research by scholars in economic and social history, industrial relations, economics, law, political science, sociology and social policy. As such, it is an intervention into debates concerning the politics of modern labour markets specifically and the role of the state in economic modernization more widely. It should appeal to researchers and students in several discplines.
