In this chapter the author examines the role of radical civil society in promoting social justice. The impact of political revolutions is juxtaposed with the influence of early social movements in the pursuit of emancipatory change. The chapter examines a variety of theatres of political and social change including the United States, Germany, Russia, Britain and France. A core theme underpinning the chapter is the socialisation of the state. It is argued that a fusion between the state and civil society produced the welfare state.
