What does collectivism mean in social policy? What does thinking collectively imply for policy? In this book, Paul Spicker reviews collectivism as a dimension of political discourse. Breaking down his analysis to examine collectivism through substantive, moral, and methodological lenses, he considers a series of arguments for cooperative effort, solidarity, and collective responsibility. Taking a dispassionate and methodical approach, Spicker explores what collectivism means in social policy and what value it offers to the field.
 
Review Quotes
Stephen A. Webb, Glasgow Caledonian University
“Spicker asks how to think-with, live-with, and be-with collectives in this important new book which sees afresh the possibilities of collective life. Crucially, it also reinstates the significance of the common good and value of the common weal for social scientists and activists.”
Daniel BĂ©land, McGill University
“This concise and well-written book is a compelling and timely reminder of the importance of collective action and political community.”
