"The book is indeed a welcome addition in the literature of social cohesion. It demonstrates through a profound theoretical review and robust statistical analyses the modalities of regime of social cohesion, how they are affected by the financial crisis, and institutional and policy options that have been taken to address socio-economic and political conflict under the aegis of globalization." (Rizal G. Buendia, Journal of Global Analysis, Vol. 6 (2), 2016)
"This timely volume represents an excellent intervention within debates about 'the effects of social change on the social fabric' (p. 1) in the context of globalization, increasing inequality and social diversity, and the intensification of concerns about these trends in the aftermath of the financial crisis, recession and the new politics of austerity . . . Their book is a very worthwhile contribution to these aims and should be widely read by all those working in the fields of cohesion studies." - John Flint, International Sociology
"Green et al.'s ... comprehensive study is commendable. It is a major comparative modelling project across 28 countries with advanced economics using a typology of 'regimes of social cohesion.'" - Ross Fergusson, Youth Policy
"This remarkable book on social cohesion examines a topic which has been of interest to sociologists since the discipline was founded ... combining an excellent literature review with a comparative empirical analysis of the institutional foundations and dynamics of social cohesion ... leads to the rethinking of many accepted ideas." - Arnaud Sales, Contemporary Sociology
