'This is an important book in three ways. It is synoptic in providing and interrelated explanation of the post-war rise of welfare capitalism, the pressures of globalization and subsequent welfare state reforem. It is synthetic in its sensitive interweaving of a wide range of literature. And it is illuminating in its depth analysis especially of the US and German cases.' David Soskice, Duke University, North Carolina

The authors show that globalization is an opportunity and a threat. All interessted in the fate of welfare states and of open world markets will want to have this book on their shelves.' Peter A. Hall, Harvard University
