Bush House Lecture Theatre 2 (4.04)
This talk focuses on the intellectual sources of the transformation of the state. It suggests that modernist social science informed the main narratives of the crisis of the administrative and welfare state in the 1970s, and modernist social science also inspired the waves of public sector reform that responded to this crisis. Mark Bevir is Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for British Studies, University of California, Berkeley.
