Abstract

Planning is not a technical and value free activity. Planning is an overt political system that creates both winners and losers. The Planning Polity is a book that considers the politics of development and decision-making, and political conflicts between agencies and institutions within British town and country planning. The focus of assessment is how British planning has been formulated since the early 1990s, and provides an in-depth and revealing assessment of both the Major and Blair governments' terms of office. The book will prove to be an invaluable guide to the British planning system today and the political demands on it. Students and activists within urban and regional studies, planning, political science and government, environmental studies, urban and rural geography, development, surveying and planning, will all find the book to be an essential companion to their work.

Abstract

This text offers descriptions and analyses of some of the different ways in which schools and other educational institutions have started to establish new collaborative relationships in today's competitive educational marketplace. Using case studies, the book describes examples of such collaborative structures.; Educational consortia have been established as a vehicle for professional and curriculum development, as a source of mutual support and as a condition of mutual survival. As the "LEA monopolies" have been forced to shed many of their traditional functions or schools have opted out, schools have found it necessary to re-create parts of their collaborative structures out of sheer self- Interest.; For Some Educators Who Continue To Be Attached To Notions Of "an educational service" and professional collegiality in the provision of such a service, inter-institutional collaboration becomes seen as something to be valued independently of the instrumental benefits which it provides. For this variety of reasons, consortium working and collaborative structures seem set to develop in spite of, or as a necessary antodote to, educational markets. Understanding the role and operation of such structures is a necessity for educational managers in all parts of the educational service.

Abstract

Public Order and Private Lives is a radical examination of the political forces which shape the law and order debate in Britain. Mike Brake and Chris Hale provide a hard-hitting analysis of Conservative policies on Crime, showing that, ironically, Conservative policies have created the very social conditions in which crime has flourished. They argue that the government is undermining basic civil liberties by its increased use of legislation as a means of control and coercion.

Abstract

Située à la frontière du nord du Vietnam et dotée d’un relief accidenté, la province de Cao Bằng, pays des Tày, a longtemps été considérée comme une zone reculée, barbare, insalubre et potentiellement dangereuse pour les Kinh venus du delta. Pour bien administrer cette zone frontalière, le souverain dût accepter les privilèges des chefs autochtones en maintenant ses propres prérogatives comme les éléments symboliques. Mais, à partir de 1820, en visant à intégrer cette région au système administratif officiel du pays, l’empereur Minh Mạng (1820‑1840) a réalisé une politique pour éliminer le pouvoir des gardiens de frontière. Cette réforme est considérée comme la première offensive, et d’ailleurs la plus violente, du pouvoir central à l’encontre des chefs autochtones en zone montagneuse. Cette monographie met en lumière la relation entre la monarchie et les pouvoirs locaux de Cao Bằng des origines aux conséquences de la réforme de Minh Mạng, y compris la rivalité politique entre des chefs locaux sur le plan local. Cette étude rétrospective offre un nouveau regard sur le processus d’intégration des marches frontières du nord du Vietnam et sur les difficultés rencontrées par la cour de Hué dans sa gestion des régions frontalières.
