Labor Parties in Postindustrial Societies


Out of stock


Edited by Frances Fox Piven

Vast changes in western societies have dimmed the prospects of the labor-based political parties that emerged a century ago, and became major contenders for government power.

This book makes evident the problems generated for left parties by the emerging post-industrial international economic order. However, despite common difficulties, eachparty confronts the new problems of post-industrialism in the context of different national political heritages and party legacies. These differences, in turn, go far toward explaining the relative success of some parties and the disarray of others.
