The contributions to this edited collection, first published in 1983, are based on two underlying themes. The first examines the major recession that took hold of the global economy during the 1980s and assesses its effects on key areas of social structure, including political and economic democracy and trade union representation. The second theme considers the limitations of state intervention in such changing circumstances, with particular reference to the welfare state. This is a comprehensive title, which is of great relevance to those with an interest in the current global economic situation and the potential impact of this on the welfare state and class structure.

"The insights generated are surprisingly relevant for analysis of the recent Global Economic Crisis of 2008. ... A strong point of the work lies in the detailed and insightful comparative analysis of original sources such as Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Max Weber, and Karl Marx, acting as a valuable reference for understanding the relationships and development of these scholar's ideas, which makes it a shame that this work has not received greater attention. " - Ace V. Simpson and Marco Berti (2014) Journal of Political Power
