`this is a helpful book, addressing a central question which should be of concern to all economists ' British Review of Economic Issues `first rate, commands attention, and deserves a very wide readership ' Roger Middleton, University of Bristol, Economic History Review, Volume XLIV, No. 1 February 1991 `The work has a refreshing breadth ' Development Policy Review `This is a notable book, overall, and one which should stay on as a handy reference for developments which occurred - between, and within OECD economies - till up to about 1987. The quality of the contributions, each one by authorities in the field, is uniformly high. The stress on political economy aspects, and the avoidance of `economism' is particularly refreshing. ' Economic Times `This volume is a welcome addition to the growing literature on the nature of capitalist development in the advanced economies since the second world war ... this volume is a useful starting point for anyone attempting to discover the parameters of the golden age of capitalism.
