Transformations of the Welfare State analyses several small, advanced OECD economies to assess whether the welfare state can compete under the conditions of an increasingly integrated world economy. Looking to the future of the welfare state, in an era newly marked by profound uncertainty, the authors sound an optimistic note.

Christine Trampusch, University of Cologne The word restriction of this review does not allow sufficient appreciation of the four country studies. All four are excellent. They are rich in detail, historically informed, well structured and give an excellend overview of teh reform trajectories in the four investigated policy sectors... In sum, the book offers significant lessons on transformation of teh welfare state in small states. It is extremely valuable for teaching, having the potential to become a bible
in welfare state courses for the next decade. The book is of interest no only because of the detailed country studies it contains but also because it shows how political factors matter. It makes clear why political science is indispensable in comparative welfare state research.


Martin Rhodes, West European Politics The quality of this book leaves little scope for criticism. It should deal a heavy blow both to those who still believe in the "strong globalisation" thesis and to those who idealise the onward march of free markets.
