'... the book is a well-written and provoking account of the interaction between (intra) party competition and policy shifts on social welfare in majoritarian democracies.' West European Politics
'Rosa Mule's book focusing on the impact of political parties on income redistribution policy in liberal democracies makes a compelling read for party politics scholars because it looks beyond political parties as unitary actors and explores how intra-party politics affect the policy choices of government parties.' Party Politics
'Rosa Mule makes a convincing case that changes in the pattern opf cash transfers under the welfare state cannot be fully explained by the links between party and class ... the book will be of considerable interest to scholars interested in institutional rational choice theory, party politics, and the politics of the welfare state'. Political Studies
'This is a complex, provocative and theoretically sophisticated book that breaks new ground in the study of income redistribution policy and presents a powerful argument about the relevance of intra-party conflict to the development of redistributive politics in four liberal democracies during the past three decades.' Democratization
