Description

Already well-known for his original and critical approach to theories of the state, Bob Jessop turns his attention to theories of political economy. Exploring the nature of Fordism, its crisis, and the transition to post-Fordism, he also critically assesses the fashionable "regulation" approach to these phenomena. Weaving a complex path among abstract theories, middle-range concepts and analyses, and specific case studies, the author reveals both the benefits and dangers of a "regulationist" approach. The book provides critical reviews of different regulation theories and an original reformulation of them, discussions of the substantive nature of Fordism, its crises, and alternative post-Fordist futures, as well as comparative analyses of Britain, Germany, the USA and Japan from a regulationist approach.show more
