From the Publisher'An outstanding contribution to contemporary debates about thefuture direction of the welfare state in the advanced Westernworld...Esping-Andersen writes extremely lucidly and well and bothhis thesis and his recommendations are very plausible. This is thekind of book that makes one feel that the sociological enterprisereally is worthwhile.'
Political Studies Review
'The Incomplete Revolution strongly enhances ourunderstanding of the making and unmaking of unequal life chances.And last but not least, it is a surprisingly entertainingread.'
European Sociological Review
'Esping-Andersen's book confirms his position as one of the mostbrilliant social scientists of the last decades. His latest work isan invaluable contribution which helps to bridge the gap betweendemography, public policy and sociology, and provide acomprehensive frame of reference for understanding the potentialrevolutionary impact of the changing role of women.'
Work, Employment and Society
'A fascinating book. Esping-Andersen's contention that goodpolicy reforms must begin with babies is provocative, imaginativeand timely. A bold exposition of the unplanned consequences forfamily, fertility and ageing of the incomplete revolution ofwomen's new roles.'
Professor Jacqueline Scott, University of Cambridge
'In this sweeping and provocative new book, GostaEsping-Andersen brilliantly pulls together evidence fromdemography, economics, sociology, and child development to arguethat the revolution in women’s roles, if not addressed byreforms to the welfare state, will lead to increased inequality forcurrent and future generations.'
