What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Colin Crouch is, as ever, the supreme guide through the complexities of social life in the societies in which we now live. This is obligatory reading for all who wish to make sense of the social world around us.' - Colin Hay, Sciences Po, Paris, France

'This is a major contribution to our understanding of European societies from one of Europe's foremost scholars. An exemplary combination of contemporary quantitative analysis and deep historical understanding, it convincingly challenges conventional accounts and represents a model of comparative analysis. This will assuredly be a landmark of comparative social science.' – Anthony Heath, Nuffield College, University of Oxford, UK
