Reviews

'With this insightful and compelling study Hartwig Pautz provides a sophisticated analysis of the contribution think-tanks have made to the politics and policies of Germany and the UK between 1992 and 2005. An illuminating read which will be enjoyed by scholars and practitioners alike.'

- Ruth Wittlinger, Senior Lecturer in the School of Government and International Affairs, University of Durham, UK

'This book provides an incisive analysis of the respective contributions made by British and German think-tanks to the creation of key elements of social policy by the Labour Party and the SPD. Based on extensive empirical research, Dr. Pautz's work makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the British and German polities, and, specifically, enhances our grasp of the role played by think tanks in the policy process.'

- Robert Pyper, Head of School of Social Sciences, University of the West of Scotland, UK

'A worthwhile and enjoyable read for scholars and practitioners who would understand the way we live now.' - Derek Hawes

University of Bristol, Journal of Contemporary European Studies
