THE POLITICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
The distinguished sociologist Professor Anthony Giddens elucidates the political complexities of combating climate change.

NEW CAPITALISM?
Could jobs be much more secure and long lasting than we’ve been led to believe?  Laurie Taylor is joined by Professor Kevin Doogan, author of a book entitled New Capitalism? whose close analysis of the labour force in Britain and the United States shows a surprising continuity with the past. His thesis contends that, even with the present financial crisis, claims that the world of work has changed forever are little more that scare mongering.
