9780956395207: The Big Society: The Anatomy of the New Politics

What is the Big Society? Some argue that it is a genuine vision for the future, others that it is simply a smokescreen for stringent and inevitable cuts in public-spending. As a concept it has been considered as too vague and unintelligible to attract sufficient numbers of voters, yet is already presenting a powerful case that devolved government will cost less and do more. The Big Society is a bold and radical attempt to strengthen communities and civil society in order to deliver public services more efficiently, and a fundamental tenet of Big Society theory is the decentralization of power away from Whitehall. The prize should be increased accountability and efficiency and a dramatic reduction in bureaucracy and cost to the economy. This hugely important book provides a most timely and important answer to a question perhaps best described as rhetorical: it is essential reading for politicians, economists, social commentators - and the voting public.

REVIEWS

“A landmark title that captured excellent national review coverage . . . a serious attempt to replace two misguided philosophies, one on the left and one on the right. Norman attacks Labour's state centralism. More interestingly, he also questions the liberal market economics which not long ago seemed a prerequisite of Tory thinking.”Julian Glover, Guardian

"British Member of Parliament Jesse Norman (Conservative Party) promotes Prime Minister David Cameron's conservative idea of the "Big Society," with a particular focus on its economic elements. His analysis seeks to identify the sources of political, economic, and social weakness in Britain, critique the basic assumptions that underlie current economic and political thinking, and promote the ideas of "compassionate conservatism" and the "Big Society" for economics and the rule of law."

Review:

“A landmark title that captured excellent national review coverage . . . a serious attempt to replace two misguided philosophies, one on the left and one on the right. Norman attacks Labour's state centralism. More interestingly, he also questions the liberal market economics which not long ago seemed a prerequisite of Tory thinking.”

“[C]oheres major recent academic advances, and is argued with urgency. Next time you hear someone caterwauling about the lack of big ideas in politics, refer them to this.”

British Member of Parliament Jesse Norman (Conservative Party) promotes Prime Minister David Cameron's conservative idea of the "Big Society," with a particular focus on its economic elements. His analysis seeks to identify the sources of political, economic, and social weakness in Britain, critique the basic assumptions that underlie current economic and political thinking, and promote the ideas of "compassionate conservatism" and the "Big Society" for economics and the rule of law.

Descripción The University of Buckingham Press, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Big Society: the Anatomy of the New Politics shows how the Big Society will redefine British politics for a generation. Ranging widely over economics, philosophy, history, business, civil liberties, education and culture, it reveals how the Big Society is rooted in neglected British intellectual and social traditions but also embodies some of the most unexpected and cutting-edge new policy ideas. Among other things, it explains -- how the growth of the Labour party has been a disaster for the Left in Britain -- why so much happiness theory is intellectually bankrupt -- the paradox of creativity: why high bonuses often reduce, not improve, human performance -- why Conservatives should robustly defend common law human rights -- the social power of music and the arts Packed with deep insights and new perspectives, this book tells you everything you need to know about the most exciting idea in British politics. It is essential reading for politicians, economists, social commentators, those in the public services and the voting public. The Big Society is published by the University of Buckingham Press, and available online and in all good bookshops. A sample chapter can be found on Praise for the author s Compassionate Conservatism (2006): The intellectual guidebook to Cameronism, Sunday Times The book everyone in Westminster is talking about The Observer Superb. What the Conservatives need now is not re-branding but an actual philosophical and policy basis for action. This book brilliantly provides that basis, Andrew Sullivan, political commentator and journalist Politicians should encourage the emergence of voluntary co-operation, exchange and virtue in society. This delightful and important book explains why and how, from political first principles to policy nuts and bolts. Conservatives and non-conservatives alike should read it, Matt Ridley, author of The Rational Optimist A glimpse of the future of British Conservatism, Adrian Wooldridge, Co-author of The Right Nation.
