In this important new book, Bob Jessop offers a radical new
interpretation of capitalist states and their likely future
development. He focuses on the changing forms, functions, scales
and effectiveness of economic and social policy that have emerged
since the 1950s in advanced western capitalist states.

The postwar Keynesian welfare national state that developed in
most advanced capitalist societies has long been regarded as being
in crisis. Mounting tensions have been generated by technological
change, globalization, and economic and political crises, and new
social and political movements have also had a destabilizing
impact. Jessop examines these factors in relation to the rise,
consolidation and crisis of Atlantic Fordism and asks whether a new
type of capitalist state that is currently emerging offers a
solution. He notes that there are several difficulties still to be
overcome before the new type of state is consolidated; in
particular, he is critical of its neoliberal form and considers its
main alternatives.


This book will have broad cross-disciplinary appeal. It will be
read by sociologists, political scientists, institutional
economists, geographers and students of social policy.
