Honey bees (Apis mellifera Linnaeus) from Austria and Switzerland, suffering from Waldtrachtkrankheit, and from Italy and Norway suffering from Mal Noir contained as much chronic bee paralysis virus as bees suffering from “paralysis” in Britain and Malta. These diseases appear to be etiologically the same, therefore, and the variable and unreliable signs sometimes exhibited are perhaps caused by factors secondary to infection by the virus. Apparently healthy bees from Canada and Italy were infected with the virus of acute paralysis, as they are in Britain.

Introduction: Since 1997, Britain has undergone a major programme of constitutional reform, which has reshaped its legislative, electoral and legal institutions. A number of reasons – beyond mere partisan self-interest – could be given to explain the reforms: a desire to limit the authority wielded by the government of the day, to give territorial minorities the opportunities for greater self-expression, to strengthen the legally enforceable rights of individuals over the state, to improve the decision making capacity of the state and thus contribute to economic efficiency, and so on. Among the plethora of reasons that commentators and policy actors themselves have provided for the reforms is the belief that the reshaping of Britain’s core political institutions is a necessary step in improving the links between citizens and government. A representative statement of this position was provided by Tony Blair prior to gaining office: “Changing the way we govern, and not just changing our government, is no longer an optional extra for Britain. So low is public esteem for politicians and the system we operate that there is now little authority for us to use unless and until we first succeed in regaining it.” (‘Democracy’s Second Age’...

The paper explores approaches to child protection in post-war Italy and Britain between 1945 and the mid 1960s. Both in Italy and in Britain, the Second World War represented a watershed in the treatment of children, giving them a new visibility and political relevance. In both countries, post-war political discourses made frequent reference to children, presenting them alternatively as the main victims of the war, the most vulnerable elements in post-war societies and the most valuable assets of the new democratic states. By looking at the way in which children’s needs were articulated and acted upon in Italian and British social policy, the paper discusses conceptions of parental responsibilities and the role of the state in the post war period. Particular attention is given to the analysis of how Britain and Italy’s different historical and cultural contexts influenced the transformations taking place in three areas, crucial to the treatment of children: the rethinking of the social responsibilities of the state that took place after the war - although leading to different outcomes in different countries; the role played by voluntary organisations, particularly those linked to the Churches, in the provision of social services addressed to families and children; the transformation of the expectations attached to the family. The paper has two main aims. The first is to identify differences between the British and Italian approach to child welfare; the second is to explore the transformations taking place in the relationship between state...

Based on the 1988-2006 General Household Survey (N=121,934), this paper investigates trends and patterns of partnership formation of immigrants in Britain and explains underlying factors influencing partner choice. The key questions are:1) whom do the immigrants of different gender, generation and ethnic groups form partnerships with: (a White British partner, a Britishborn coethnic partner or a coethnic partner from overseas); and 2) what factors are explaining such a choice. Immigrants socialised in Britain, the second generation and those who migrated to Britain at a young age, are more likely to have a White British partner and less likely to be in a transnational partnership. Age at union, marital status, educational qualification, area ethnic composition, sex ratio and educational homogomy are significant predictors of one’s partner choice. Yet, ethnic origin remains a crucial determinant of patterns of partnership formation. The statistical analysis suggests that the rates of interethnic union with a White British partner will continue to increase for Black Caribbeans, Black Africans and also gradually for highly educated Indians. The proportion of Pakistanis and Bangladeshis having a White British partner will remain low and simultaneously transnational marriage with a coethnic partner from overseas will still be commonly practiced. Overall...

Examining board: Prof. Richard Breen (Nuffield College, Oxford, and foremr EUI, Supervisor) ; Prof.Chaira Saraceno (Università degli Studi di Torino, Co-supervisor) ; Prof. Colin Crouch (Warwick Business School and EUI) ; Prof. Antonio Schizzerotto (Università degli Studi di Milano Bicocca); Defence date: 15 April 2005; Over the last fifty years women's employment has increased markedly throughout developed countries. Women of younger generations are much more likely than their mothers and grandmothers to enter the labour market and stay in it after they marry and have children. Are these changes due only to changes in women's investments and preferences, or also to the opportunities and constraints within which women form their choices? Have women with higher and lower educational and occupational profiles combined family responsibilities with paid work differently? And have their divisions changed? With an innovative approach, this dissertation compares Italy and Great Britain, investigating transformations in women's transitions in and out of paid work across four subsequent birth cohorts, from the time they leave full-time education up to their 40s. It provides a comprehensive discussion of demographic, economic and sociological theories and contains large amounts of information on changes over time in the two countries...

peer-reviewed; This thesis examines twentieth-century memoirs and autobiographies from Irish migrants to Britain, focusing particularly on the period 1930–1960. This time period roughly corresponds with the peak of a sustained wave of migration between Ireland and Britain. The thesis seeks to explore the validity of stereotypes that have grown up around the Irish migrant community who settled in Britain at this time. These stereotypes, engrained at cultural and governmental levels, characterise the Irish migrant as male, hard-drinking, navvy-type figures. This thesis looks beyond the metonym and explores the individuality that hides behind a façade of homogeneity. The effectiveness and appeal of the genre of autobiography as a means of expressing the complexities of migrant experience is dealt with in the opening chapter. The thesis then scrutinises several texts drawn from the “navvy” tradition, identifying many common themes and tropes within this sub-genre. Ultimately, however, these texts prove to be highly individual, offering the author the opportunity to express individuality and difference from a position of safety within a distinct community. The experiences of Irish women migrants are also examined with particular attention paid to the possible reasons for a relative paucity of autobiographical texts from this section of the migrant community. This thesis identifies a tendency for women to view Britain as a haven or refuge rather than as a place of exile. It also looks at how Irish women were viewed as being more assimilable into British society. Conversely...

27 pages.-- REGHAB Project: Report on Workpackage 5 – Deliverable no 18.; There is a conflict in upland Britain between grouse managers and conservation organisations over the management of legally protected raptor species and in particular hen harriers Circus cyaneus. A number of potential solutions have been proposed, but their likelihood of success depends upon how acceptable they are to key stakeholders. We used Multiple Criteria Decision Models with two groups of stakeholders (grouse managers – GM, and raptor conservationists - RC) to quantify the relative importance of evaluation criteria, and use these to score various moorland management options and harrier management options. This technique showed that for assessing the value of moorland, more importance was placed on economic factors by GM, whilst RC valued species richness and abundance factors more highly. Intensively managed grouse moors were ranked most highly by GM and managed nature reserves by RC, but both groups ranked highly the management option of intensively managed grouse moors with no raptor control. For evaluating hen harrier management options, GM considered timescale and cost to be more important criteria than RC did, whilst RC considered legal constraints more important than GM. Among the management techniques considered...

This dissertation argues that the literary, intellectual, and cultural borders of Victorian Britain extended as far as Australia and New Zealand, and that the tradition of nation-based literary criticism inherited from the Victorians has blinded Victorian Studies to that possibility. Building upon the nineteenth century concept of "Greater Britain," a term invoking the expansion of the British nation through settler colonization, I demonstrate that literary forms did not simply diffuse from the core to the periphery of the empire, but instead were able to circulate within the space of Greater Britain. That process of circulation shaped Victorian literature and culture, as local colonial circumstances led writers to modify literary forms and knowledge formations; those modifications were then able to be further disseminated through the empire by way of the networks that constituted Greater Britain.

My argument focuses on the novel, because its formal allegiance to the imagined national community made it a valuable testing ground for the multi-centered nation that was being formed by settlement. I specifically locate the Victorian novel in the context of Britain's relations with the colonies of Australia and New Zealand, which were unique in that their transition from initial settlement to independent nations occurred almost entirely during the Victorian period. The chapters of Unsettled Nation focus on realism...

In an influential 1999 article on social capital in Britain, Peter Hall cites Britain as a counter-example to Robert Putnam’s well-known analysis of declining social capital in the United States (Hall 1999). Hall claims that there has been no equivalent erosion of social participation in Britain, although there has been an apparent decline in social trust. To explain this apparent paradox, Hall then proposes that the decline in trust may be due to changing values, as well as government policies and changes in social integration. Finally he argues that the British case provides broader lessons about distributional issues and the importance of government policy in influencing levels of social capital. In this paper we draw in newly available data sets to update Hall's assessment of the levels of social capital in Britain and provide additional analysis. The data indicates that formal participation in voluntary organisations and political engagement are increasingly concentrated in the middle and upper middle classes. In addition levels of generalised social trust have levelled out and remain low. We suggest that there are influences which were not fully considered by Hall, such as the rise in income inequality during the 1980s and the changing nature of working life. We argue that the distributional issues are critical to considering the overall levels of social capital in Britain...

This study focusses on the relationship between social assistance and personal social services on the one hand and various forms of social insurance on the other hand. During the period the expressed objective was in both nations to replace the Poor Law with insurance, leaving only a small last resort assistance scheme. While Norway continued the pre-war practice of breaking down the Poor Law "from without" through the gradual extension of insurance, Britain attempted a more immediate transition through the creation of a universal National Insurance and a National Assistance freed from the cash-care multifunctional nature of the Poor Law. The comparison of the ensuing development rests on two postulates. First, Norwegian social insurance will be seen to have experienced a more favourable development in terms of coverage and levels of benefits. Second, in the case of assistance the Norwegian scheme covered a decreasing proportion of the population with a service bearing strong resemblance to those of the Poor Law. Britain, by contrast, experienced a growth in the number covered by assistance, in terms of numbers as well as need categories. The services obtained bear, however, less resemblance to the Poor Law compared to their Norwegian counterpart. For both nations it will be hypothesised that the scope and nature of assistance can be largely explained by the development of social insurance. The findings will be discussed in relation to Titmuss' models of welfare. The hypothesis is that while Norway on the whole has reached an income maintenance closer to the institutional model compared to Britain...
