"Additionally, while castigated as undemocratic by its critics, the National government did manage to preserve democratic principles in Britain when they were being undermined and destroyed in much of Europe. Negatively, too, the coalition offered Churchill's wartime government of 1940 a model of co-operation between parties, which made it in many ways suspiciously similar to its lauded successor."--BOOK JACKET. "This is the first book for students on British politics of the period. It brings together a mass of specialized literature to make clear and interesting a critical decade which ended in the most severe test any British government has ever had to face."--Jacket.

Democratisation in Britain

"Democratisation in Britain is a novel reinterpretation of British social and political history since 1800 in the light of the continuing debate about democratisation. As such, the book goes far beyond standard histories of political reform. In common with politics in Northern Europe, North America and Australasia, Britain's democratisation began early and in highly favourable circumstances. The process took place in stages, only half-consciously and in the context of a generally benign economic cycle. The country possessed a vibrant civil society at most levels of its adult population, along with a flexible, competitive and opportunistic set of political elites." "Countries undergoing democratisation since 1918 have been far less fortunate, and the process is thereby much more difficult. Thus this book may be seen as portraying an 'ideal type' against which to compare and contrast these later experiences." "Democratisation in Britain combines the disciplines of political science and history, and will be of interest to scholars and students in both fields."--BOOK JACKET.

H. G. Wells schuf 1898 mit dem ›Krieg der Welten‹ den ersten Roman einer interplanetarischen Invasion, der das Vorbild zahlloser Marsmenschen-Märchen wurde. Orson Welles produzierte 1938 nach diesem SF-Klassiker das berühmteste Hörspiel aller Zeiten: obwohl als Hörspiel angekündigt, brach Panik aus, die Menschen verließen fluchtartig die Städte, weinten, beteten und glaubten an das Ende der Welt.

Im Jahr 1936 geht George Orwell in die Industriestädte Nordenglands, um an Ort und Stelle zu beobachten, wie Bergleute im Alltag arbeiten und wohnen.

Category: Monetary policy

In Anlehnung an Friedrich A. von Hayeks Werk “Die Entnationalisierung des Geldes” werden verschiedene Geldsysteme diskutiert, die den Einfluss des Staates auf das Geld entweder beschränken oder gänzlich beenden. Die Entstaatlichung durch eine konstitutionelle Bindung der Notenbank und die Verankerung einer Präferenz der Geldstabilität wird durch mehrere Beiträge verdeutlicht. Die Notwendigkeit einer weitergehenden Entstaatlichung durch mehr Wettbewerb wird auch vor dem Hintergrund der Eurokrise behandelt. Zentralbanken werden infrage gestellt, die Folgen der Institution eines reinen Zwangsgeldes werden aufgezeigt und der Währungswettbewerb wird als Lösung verteidigt. Mit Beiträgen von: Philipp Bagus, Ernst Baltensperger, James Buchanan, Milton Friedman, Friedrich A. von Hayek, Guido Hülsmann, Ekkehard Köhler, Gerald O'Driscoll, Anna Schwartz, Gerhard Schwarz, Erich Weede.

Twentieth century ethics of human subjects research

historical perspectives on values, practices, and regulations

Author: Volker Roelcke,Giovanni Maio

Publisher: Franz Steiner Verlag

Debates on the ethics of human subjects research meet with an increasing interest both within the medical profession and the broader public. Frequently, historical arguments are used to propagate or attack certain positions within these debates. However, there is a tendency to oversimplify the complexities of the past for present day purposes, and at the same time a lack of awareness of the historical dimension implicit in today's value preferences. Twentieth Century Ethics of Human Subjects Research brings together leading historians of medicine to reconstruct and analyse the history of actual experimental practices, the debates on human subjects research, and the attempts to regulate such research during the twentieth century. The volume addresses cases of medical research in France, Britain, Israel, the United States, and Germany, including the Nazi period; the major developments of ethical debates in these and further national contexts, such as the Soviet Union, the Czech Republic, and Japan. It also explores religious views (Catholic, Jewish) on human experimentation, and the origins and contexts of international codes and declarations. "Volker Roelckes Ã_berblick ueber die Geschichte der Menschenversuche im Dritten Reich sei jedem empfohlen, der sich kurz und prägnant ueber dieses duestere Kapitel deutscher Geschichte informieren möchte."
