Editorial Reviews


"Comparing Policy Networks is a noteworthy piece of work. Further exploration of the data, using conceptual language of the sort the authors advocate, will very likely make a major contribution to the political economy literature." Roger V. Gould, American Journal of Sociology

"...they show how our understanding of the very nature and meaning of the state has improved....the author deftly accomplishes his goal of showing that efficient and rational development is a social fiction whose meaning reflects neither efficiency nor rationality but the larger social fictions of different cutural systems....smoothly written and lively exposition of great coherence." John Boli, ASQ

Book Description

The United States, Germany, and Japan differ strikingly in how their governments relate to their economies. Interviews with more than 350 key labor policy organizations in all three countries reveal, however, similar conflict divisions between business and labor interests as well as distinctive patterns.
