From the Publisher"Poses (very well) the questions that will shape our world for many years to come."
"Nothing less than a novel, comprehensive and syncretic analysis of what has changed in the relationship between capitalism and democracy over the past thirty years - and into the future."
Philippe C. Schmitter, European University Institute
"Insightful and engaging, the essays in this volume cover a remarkably wide range of topics related to the fundamental question of our time: what happens to democracy when governments have so little fiscal room to manoeuvre? A great read that will inspire new thinking and research."
Jonus Pontusson, University of Geneva
"Politics in the Age of Austerity is a hugely important contribution to the contemporary literature on the political economy of the advanced capitalist countries. Featuring a series of penetrating essays by some of the field’s foremost theorists, the book offers a powerful – and sobering – picture of the dilemmas and constraints that governments face as they seek to reconcile the increasingly conflicting demands of two constituencies – voters and 'the markets'. As such, it sheds new light on the enduring question of the evolving relationship between democracy and capitalism."
Kathleen Thelen, MIT
