About the Authors
  • Capitalist democracies have always displayed considerable diversity in their key political and economic institutions, such as the organization of economic interest groups and private enterprises, the public sector and the welfare state, as well as political parties and social movements. This book asks whether the challenges of new technologies, citizens' preferences, and growing political and economic interdependence in the 1980s and 1990s force all polities to adopt similar institutional reforms. The authors argue that established arrangements have become difficult to sustain, but that countries choose unique trajectories of reform, not a common approach. The diversity among capitalist democracies persists in a new fashion.

    • An overview of cutting-edge research in many areas of international and comparative political economy and comparative politics
    • Contributors are well known authorities in their areas
    • Book lends itself to course adoption in graduate survey classes in the comparative politics of advanced industrial countries

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This book represents an intellectual tour de force in the field of comparative political economy, and brings together several distinguished scholars to analyze and update the transformation of advanced capitalist democracies in the 1990s. I strongly recommend it for graduate and advanced undergraduate courses on the political economy of advanced capitalist democracies." Shah Tarzi, ECSA Review
