The Political Economy of the Service Transition provides an essential guide to understanding the transformational impact of the shift to services across the rich democracies. The volume features insightful contributions from an all-star cast of authors, framed by a superb synthetic introduction by Anne Wren. * Kathleen Thelen, Ford Professor of Political Science, MIT *
The Political Economy of the Service Transition is an outstanding collection of essays explaining the impact of one key dimension in the changes affecting industrial societies. Anne Wren has gathered a stellar group of scholars to address how the development of the service sector transforms the politics and economics of advanced democratic societies. The analytically and empirically rich essays by leading contributors draw on their research to related the development of the service sector to the varieties of capitalism framework and to the political consequences of service based economic transformation for politics. The result is a major contribution and indispensable reading for students of comparative politics, political economy and the sociology of industrial society. * Desmond King, Andrew W Mellon Professor of American Government, University of Oxford *
This highly focused edited volume by Wren represents a concerted attempt to update the varieties of capitalism (VoC) perspective to address the omission in the initial framework of an adequate analysis and explanation for variation in the growth of the services economy. * Jill, Rubery, ILR Review *
