Organizing Interests in Western Europe: Pluralism, Corporatism, and the Transformation of Politics

Front Cover
Suzanne Berger
CUP Archive, Apr 29, 1983 - Political Science - 426 pages
The chapters in this volume reconsider fundamental premises about state and society in advanced capitalist countries. That social scientists in different disciplines of varying methodological and political persuasions should have found it useful to collaborate in such an undertaking is testimony to the profound social, economic and political shocks experienced by all advanced capitalist nations since to late 1960s. The energy crisis, the end of rapid economic growth, inflation, high unemployment and rising social conflict challenge conventional conceptions about the functioning of industrial societies and their future course. Social science theories have been unable to illuminate these realities.
