The connection between markets and states is one of the great themes of political science. This theme is examined in these essays, whose publication celebrates the 40th anniversary of the funding of Britain's largest Department of Government, at the University of Manchester. The contributors tackle the theme in uniquely varied ways - through the eyes of historians of ideas and analytical political philosophers; from the vantage points offered by the market-state balance in Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe; and through analyses of how states regulate some of the most important sectors of advanced industrial economies.
Michael Moran is Professor of Government at the University of Manchester Business School. A Fellow of the British Academy he writes on British politics, and on wider issues in political economy. The 3rd edition of his widely used textbook, Politics and Governance in the UK, is now in preparation.
