`In this wide-ranging and thoughtful book, Hans Keman exploits an unrivalled knowledge of Social Democratic parties in 21 countries and their history to explain why this party family is in trouble. It is required reading for those who, like the author, really care about the answer.' - Chris Pierson, University of Nottingham, UK `This book is a wise and deeply grounded analysis of the development of Social Democracy from its origins to the present. Hans Keman is a master at combining historical and statistical analysis, and in this book he draws on decades of research to make an immensely ambitious, wide-ranging and valuable contribution to our understanding of Social Democracy.' - Gary Marks, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA `This is an impressive and encompassing collection of profound applications of all the relevant methods in comparative politics, in particular analyzing Social Democracy. This book resembles many of the most prominent European scholars in the field during the last three decades. A must read for each ambitious student in comparative politics and beyond.' - Wolfgang Merkel, Humboldt University and Science Center Berlin, Germany `For long a favoured research topic, Social Democracy has been comparatively neglected in the last two decades. This masterwork by the doyen of scholars of Social Democracy fills that gap by providing a convincing systematic explanation of the rise and decline of the family of Social Democratic parties. Keman's book demonstrates that this development and a further decline would have far reaching implications.' - William Paterson, OBE, FRSE, Birmingham University, UK `Grounded in his career-long rigorous research on why and how Social Democratic parties differ in their organization, policies and performance, Hans Keman has written the most informative and challenging account of Social Democracy available. By carefully tracing and comparing the histories of the parties, Keman brilliantly exposes their main achievements, mistakes, successes and failures.' - Kees van Kersbergen, Aarhus University, Denmark "[A] must-read for anyone who is interested in the social democratic party family. The book offers a concise yet comprehensive account of the historical, programmatic, electoral, and governmental developments of social democratic parties in 21 advanced democracies. Conceptualization is innovative and the analyses are thorough and meticulous. This book represents comparative political science at its best!" - Arjan H. Schakel, Maastricht University, The Netherlands. Book Review in Acta Politica, December 2018.
