Reviews

'This book offers the most compelling single-volume treatment to date of the evolution of advanced democratic capitalism and its subtypes. It provides state-of-the-art analysis of the character of postindustrial changes, their impact on cleavages and citizen preferences, and how parties fashion winning postindustrial political coalitions behind particular paths of adjustment. In doing so, Beramendi and colleagues reject functionalist and structuralist explanations of contemporary change and highlight the centrality of coalition building, partisan competition, and electoral politics for understanding the trajectories of advanced nations. The book concludes with an insightful examination of the consequences of particular paths of postindustrial policy adaption for economic outcomes, equality, and life satisfaction as well as the impact of recent economic crises on advanced capitalism. It is a superb contribution.' Duane Swank, President of the APSA Organized Section on Comparative Politics, Marquette University, Wisconsin
'An excellent contribution to the important topic of comparing country responses to the economic turbulences of recent times: how models about power resources, path dependence, and power alignments can make senses out of divergence/convergence on inequality, unemployment, growth, mobility, gender, health, and education. Faced with the decline of manufacturing, the globalization of the supply chain, and the shrinking of low-wage manufacturing, countries use their investments in the various institutions of capitalism in differing ways. This book helps us understand this variance and is valuable for faculty and students alike.' Peter Gourevitch, School of International Relations and Pacific Studies, University of California, San Diego
