About this book

Drawing on cross-national European data from the European Social Survey as well as Swedish national survey data and registers, this book investigates social capital in relation to health and health inequalities in European welfare states.

Reviews

"To my knowledge, this is the first book to comprehensively examine the impact of welfare state regimes on social capital and how this relationship may impact on health and health inequalities ... I would highly recommend this book to academics and policymakers alike." - Social Policy and Administration
