About this book

This book combines the two most important typologies of capitalist diversity; Esping-Andersen's welfare regime typology and Hall and Soskice's 'Varieties of Capitalism' typology, into a unified typology of capitalist diversity. The author shows empircally that certain welfare states bundle together with certain production systems.

Martin Schröder is Junior Professor for Economic Sociology at Marburg University, Germany. He has worked on comparing capitalisms, welfare states and social inequality.

Reviews

'This remarkable book provides what scholars of both capitalism and welfare states have long been waiting for: a single unified typology that serves to bring together the literatures on the 'Varieties of Capitalism' and the 'Families of Welfare States.' In delineating three clusters of production and welfare regimes liberal, conservatively coordinated, and social-democratically coordinated capitalism this book provides a major contribution to both fields by demonstrating quantitatively, using a vast array of empirical data, and qualitatively, through case studies, how we can make sense of capitalist complementarities in all their diversity.' -Vivien A. Schmidt, Jean Monnet Professor of European Integration and Professor of International Relations and Political Science, Boston University, US

'Finally, this book has combined Esping-Andersen's seminal welfare regime typology and varieties of capitalism into one unified typology of capitalist diversity. And it has done so very skillfully, showing why welfare states and production systems are similar in groups of countries.' - Louis Chauvel, Professor of Sociology, University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg

'This book is a must-read for anyone trying to understand how varieties of capitalism and welfare regimes are connected.' - Helmut Voelzkow, Professor of Comparative Sociology, University of Osnabrück, Germany
