What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"At a time when many are rethinking the relationship between state and market, this is a very useful survey setting the issues in historical and theoretical perspective. Like its predecessor, Dunleavy and O'Leary's Theories of the State, it will be very effective for course use." - Peter A. Hall, Harvard University

"[A] good introductory book which can be warmly recommended to its intended audience" - Edwin Van de Haar, Political Studies
