About the Author

Dr Ashley Lavelle is a Lecturer in the Department of Politics and Public Policy at Griffith University, Australia.


'Lavelle retraces the steps of social democracy's embracing of neoliberalism and provides a detailed and passionate account of its transformation. The argument developed in this comparative study is straightforward, coherent, and empirically sound. It is also innovative and bound to cause controversy. This excellent book is one of the most remarkable recent studies on contemporary Social Democracy and a genuine contribution to the understanding of modern politics.' Gerassimos Moschonas, Panteion University of Athens, Greece, and Free University of Brussels, Belgium
