Change in British Society 6: The Social Order
Dr A. H. Halsey. Professor of Social and Administrative Studies, University of Oxford.
'Neither Marxism nor liberalIsm can solve our central problem - the problem of order or, as I put it, fraternity. Both theories come out of the early development of capitalism, both over-estimate the possibility of economic solutions. I want to argue that there are native traditions of social and political theory, which can be of more use to us in our search for a solution.' (Rp(d: Sun R3) Review: page 74
