Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pierson's case studies are especially interesting, for they challenge a widely held view that universal programs are more durable than targeted, means-tested programs....Pierson's empirically rich analysis...constitutes a valuable contribution to an understanding of the politics of the contemporary welfare state." American Journal of Sociology

"...[an] insightful, balanced, incredibly lucid, well-organized account of the durability of welfare state programs....Highly recommended for all research collections." Social & Behavioral Sciences

"...path-breaking study." The Economist

"Pierson provides informative, finely grained analyses of the politics of programmed retrenchment in old-age pensions, housing policies, and income support programs....Pierson's theoretical framework provides much insight and understanding of the social welfare policy records of Reagan and Thatcher....this important book can be highly recommended to students and scholars. It is particularly appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses stressing national institutions, public policy, or political economy. It is essential reading for welfare state researchers and other scholars interested in the politics of social policy in the contemporary era." Duane Swank, American Political Science Review

Book Description

Focusing on the administrations of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, this text provides a compelling explanation for the welfare state's durability and the few occasions where each government was able to achieve significant cutbacks in an era of austerity and conservative governance.
