Recent evidence continues to highlight the prevalence of inequities in morbidity experience of illness over the lifecourse and mortality death rate and suggest that, despite significant improvement in health and wellbeing for large sections of populations, there continues to be a gap between the health of the most affluent and the poorest. In this way, risk becomes a form of governance, as the individuals continually find themselves balancing risks and opportunities. This is to be achieved through partnerships between the public, private and voluntary sectors, and most significantly, communities themselves. Examining neoliberalism in the context of political, social, economic and institutional domains, this volume promotes a critical and challenging approach to the social and economic attitudes characterising late-modern capitalism. More broadly, attention has been drawn to the increasing significance of technologies of the self' inside neo-liberal regimes of governance. This neoliberal resurgence has been characterised by competition and free markets, individual and family responsibility, and socioeconomic policies that engender social insecurity, resulting in economic freedom for the few and a strong law-and-order state for those at the bottom of the social hierarchy.
Purpose — The paper's purpose is to reopen a debate around the potential impact of narrow conceptualisations of inclusion, or participation, of service users in current mental health policy development and implementation. Previously he worked for the probation service for 26 years. These approaches contrast with more upstream structural strategies that aim to address material determinants of health. The essays included in 'Organising Neoliberalism: Markets, Privatisation and Justice' explore how neoliberal ideology permeates nearly all aspects of modern life, and produce strong arguments for resistance against it. Often promoted through the inculcation of risk avoidance and management, such discourses are played out in myriad settings, including the popular media. © 2012 Philip Whitehead and Paul Crawshaw editorial matter and selection.

This is to be achieved through critical analysis of the institutionalisation of neoliberal values and modes of thought in a variety of settings. These confessional' acts can in turn be predicated on traditional assumptions of moral authority exercised by more senior colleagues. Examining neoliberalism in the context of political, social, economic and institutional domains, this volume promotes a critical and challenging approach to the social and economic attitudes characterising late-modern capitalism. It is never immediate, never complete.
Examining the effects of the emergence of late-modern capitalism in the 1970s, the articles look at how the reaction against post-war Keynesian ideology manifested itself in each of these areas. Today, we do not know what we have to do, but we have to act now, because the consequences of inaction could be catastrophic. There is persuasive evidence that the reduction of health inequalities can only be achieved by addressing their fundamental causes as opposed to the diseases through which they are expressed or the immediate precursors of those diseases. Abandoning the all-encompassing, supportive attitude deemed necessary in the immediate aftermath of wartime instability, the neoliberal emphasis on individual responsibility has resulted in numerous social and moral dislocations, including harsher attitudes toward crime and punishment. This collection of essays incorporates the insight of an international group of experts to explore the impact of neoliberal ideology upon political, social and economic domains, as well as institutions such as the prison, healthcare and education systems and the voluntary sector. The empirical focus of this chapter is the growing use of social marketing for health as a new public health methodology in the United Kingdom.
As noted in the introduction, the purpose of the book is to substantiate this assertion and to add to the wealth of discussion and analysis which has already been contributed by further illustrating not only how this new doxa has profoundly shaped the macro political and economic organisation of nation states, but, further, to illuminate its operation at the micro level of institutions and organisations. Several insights from the emerging theory of governance failure are employed to offer an explanation for why this situation has occurred. Foucault's insights into the importance of care of the self' and surveillance of the self' to systems of social order and governance, such as mental health services, are significant in identifying nursing as a potential form of confessional practice. Abandoning the all-encompassing, supportive attitude deemed necessary in the immediate aftermath of wartime instability, the neoliberal emphasis on individual responsibility has resulted in numerous social and moral dislocations, including harsher attitudes toward crime and punishment. He has researched social and political aspects of health and illness since the 1990s, and has published widely in these areas. Men's health has emerged as a key area for research and practice in the field of public health over the last decade.
Since the 1980s he has researched various aspects of the criminal justice system, and is the author of seven book and numerous articles.

This profound cultural shift is well known, but in this article, the authors will claim that it has in turn had a profound impact upon individual subjectivities and the key institutions and organisations that have long formed the basis of the Western social democratic consensus. Its particular strength is the tracing of neoliberalism as the taken-for-granted common sense of governmental debate and organisation.

Kurti and Klaus von Lampe; 5. There are also pressing threats and dangers, during 2010—15, as the criminal justice system is embedded within a new material platform through deeper integration into the circuits of capital accumulation and market expansion. These three registers are fashioned by, and subsequently help to reproduce, the contours of the prevailing politico-economic system. Where the post-war period in nations such as the United States and the United Kingdom had been defined by a general consensus around the provision of welfare and a form of managed capitalism of greatest benefit to ordinary workers and their families, this earlier crash brought finance to the fore in a previously unprecedented manner and prepared the ground for a new form of politics based upon the championing of free-market capitalism and an overt attack upon established forms of social organisation. Examining the effects of the emergence of late-modern capitalism in the 1970s, the articles look at how the reaction against post-war Keynesian ideology manifested itself in each of these areas. Reflecting a broader decollectivisation of welfare, such strategies are identified as exemplars of neo-liberal methods of governance through inculcating self management and individualisation of responsibility for health and wellbeing.
