About this book

This volume is one of the first books to consider the impact of tripartism across the developing world. It covers 8 case studies from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America, focusing on developments since the 1990s. These studies show that tripartism has the effect of reducing the social impact of neoliberal economics reforms.

Reviews

'Blunting Neoliberalism provides a well-informed, comparative analysis of tripartism in developing countries. It is a very original piece of research that develops an innovative and important theory and argument that will be of interest to the broadest scholarship of political economy. In particular, it combines comparative and international political economy and applies them to a new set of empirical issues. The result is an important contribution to both fields of the discipline.' - Marco Simoni, London School of Economics& Political Science, UK
