After the most serious economic crash since the 1930s and the slowest recovery on record, austerity rules. Spending on the welfare state did not cause the crisis, but deep cuts in welfare budgets has become the default policy response. The welfare state is seen as a burden on wealth creation which can no longer be afforded in an ever more competitive global economy. There are calls for it to be dismantled altogether. In this incisive book, leading political economist Andrew Gamble explains why western societies still need generous inclusive welfare states for all their citizens, and are rich enough to provide them. Welfare states can survive, he argues, but only if there is the political will to reform them and to fund them.

The authors examine how the USA, Great Britain, France, Sweden and Germany have responded to the increasing challenge of international competition since the mid-1970s. Apart from in Sweden, the pursuit of competitiveness has undermined economic and social citizenship rights, and this has, in Britain and the USA, engendered an assault upon the idea of the welfare state. Solidarity and social discipline will be severely tested if the welfare state is to remain economically and politically viable in a highly competitive modern world.

Nowadays political territoriality is profoundly put to the test by globalization, the rise of the network-society, international migration and new types of risk that state governments find hard to control. Yet, new political configurations do not invalidate the relevance of territory and territorial identity right away. Moreover, people who want to escape or forget foreign dominace still reach for the traditionally sovereign state (Eastern Europe, Asia). In this book an international group of political geographers analyse the meaning of post-modern transfromation in territoriality at different geographical scales: global, (inter) national and local. They cover such varied topics as the probability of a clash between civilizations, the rise of World-cities, the disintegration of African States, ethnic conflicts and politics in Europe, the meaning of a supranational territorial order (European Union), the end of the welfare state, nation-building and its symbols, Israeli cultural politics, urban regimes and local conflict-defense mechanisms. The perspectives put forward, match more general theoretical geography and political science and involve case studies from different parts of the World. This important new study is of immediate interest to students of all levels of politcial science, sociology, social geography, administrative science, international relations, contermpoary history, and to policy makers and politicians.

Freddie L. Sirmans former education is limited to a high school grad and one semester of college. But, he is a fairly well read neurotic survivor. He has one of the deepest and penetrating economical minds there is today. He knows the US and western Europe is doomed unless they privatize out of their welfare states. The welfare state has all but destroyed western civilization. The liberals and their welfare state have destroyed our culture and any capacity to barter as a last resort to survive. A lack of true survival struggle is the main causes of liberalism.

***Wie der einfache Deutsche vom Raubzug der Nationalsozialisten profitierte**** Götz Aly ist einer der wichtigsten und provokantesten NS-Forscher. Hier schreibt er über die hemmungslose Ausplünderung Europas durch die Nationalsozialisten - von der Millionen einfache Deutsche profitierten. Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges verwandelte die Regierung Hitler den Staat in eine Raubmaschine ohne Beispiel. Die große Mehrheit der Deutschen stellte sie mit sozialpolitischen Wohltaten, guter Versorgung und kleinen Steuergeschenken ruhig. Die Kosten dieser Gefälligkeitsdiktatur hatten Millionen von Europäern zu tragen, deren Besitz und Existenzgrundlagen enteignet wurden. Die Erlöse aus dem Verkauf von jüdischen Vermögen überall in Europa flossen in die deutsche Kriegskasse und damit auch in die Taschen der Soldaten. Lange beschwiegen, werden hier endlich die Vorteile, welche die deutsche »Volksgemeinschaft« aus den Verbrechen des Nationalsozialismus, aus dem Krieg und der Ermordung der Juden zog, schonungslos dargestellt.
