Editorial Reviews

Review


"With this book Peter Hall and David Soskice are opening a new chapter in the analysis of contemporary capitalism. They have succeeded in bringing together in one compelling formulation historical - institutional and rationalist - individualist analytical perspectives. The empirical applications in Varieties of Capitalism illuminate in a profound way how both scholars and policy makers will benefit when they link macro- and micro-level analyses across the many different sectors that define contemporary capitalism in its many forms. Economists and political scientists, finally, are able to meet on common ground. This book will become a classic in the field."-- Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University.


"This invaluable contribution to the comparative capitalism literature vigorously argues against the notion of convergence so popular in the globalism debates. The authors expand our understanding of national "production systems" to see new connections and show that the differences aong them allow countries to pursue distinctly different strategies of international competition. A must read."--Peter Gourevitch, University of California, San Diego


"This book has been well worth waiting for. It demonstrates the wealth of insights that could be achieveed through Soskice's innovative research program that began to chang the agenda of Comparative POlitical Economy more than a decade ago. The volume combines a definitive restatement of the varieties of cpitialism approach with illuminative applications to the range of research areas covered by it with some fascinating theoretical extensions. Excellent!"-- F.W. Scharpf, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, Cologne

This is a seminal piece of work in the varieties of capitalism literature, and the fact that it is still being referenced today speaks to the value it has added to the field. Yes, the theory presented in it is lacking in a number of respects, however it remains a must-read for anyone researching in the field.
