The nature of that transition to maturity a transition involving "The acquisition of the sort of paradigm that identifies challenging puzzles, supplies clues to their solution, and guarantees that the truly clever practitioner will succeed") deserves fuller discussion than it has received in this book, particularly from those concerned with the development of the contemporary social sciences.

An Intellectual History of British Social Policy: Idealism Versus Non-idealism

The Policy Press | January 18, 2006 | English | ISBN: 1861345305 | 232 pages | PDF | 851 KB

The history of social policy is emerging as an area of growing interest to both students and researchers. This topical book charts the period from the 1830s to the present day, providing a fresh analysis of the relationship between social theory and social policy in the UK. Different ideas about the means and aims of social policy suggested by Individualists, Idealists, and Fabian Socialists are examined in depth and their impacts on the world of social policy reassessed. Special consideration is given to the history of ideas in relation to informal care and voluntary action, as well as action by the state. An Intellectual History of British Social Policy provides a valuable framework that exposes many of the assumptions about the nature of welfare and its future direction while reconsidering and challenging many long-held beliefs about the evolution of social policy.

The Next Ten Years in British Social and Economic

The Next Ten Years in British Social and Economic by G D. H. Cole
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0415598362 | 496 pages | PDF | 1,6 MB

This volume was Cole's first major work of political economy in almost a decade and it effectively positioned him as a mainstream Fabian who sought to stabilize capitalism before progressing socialism by essentially statist means. Influenced by J A Hobson and Maynard Keynes the imperative for Cole became the formulation of a strategy which would mitigate the suffering of the masses and lay the basis for socialist advance.
