The distinguished sociologist Professor Anthony Giddens elucidates the political complexities of combating climate change.

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.
