Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The debate over "Britain in decline" still rages in the academic, political and public spheres. In this concise undergraduate book, B.W.E. Alford examines Britain's economic development within a framework of political, social and cultural factors, including topics such as the alleged process of deindustrialization, the role of sterling, labor relations and the impact of government policy. Professor Alford provides a clear and essential introduction to the subject, yet shows how complex and deep-rooted are the causes of the "British Disease."

Synopsis:

A concise textbook on the post-war British economy, placing economics in a political, social, and cultural framework.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 100-117) and index.
