Promotional Information

Daniel Cohen writes in an elegant fashion about the ruptures that define the post-industrial world: how technology has changed the organization of labor and what social consequences this is having; what world inequalities globalization is creating, and how and why the European social model differs from the US model. It is not the material discussed in this thin volume that is remarkable. It is how Cohen is able to draw the big picture with a great economy of means and to make connections between seemingly unrelated social and economic phenomena. -- Jean-Jacques Dethier, Research Manager, The World Bank, and Adjunct Professor, Public Policy Institute, Georgetown University
