Samenvatting

The Oxford Handbook of Swedish Politics provides a state of the art analysis of political development in Sweden. Covering all essential aspects of politics in Sweden, this volume provides detailed accounts of policy making, governance, institutional arrangements, foreign relations, electoral behavior, the party system, the public administration, the constitutional framework, and the welfare state. The Handbook shows how many of the features that once were exceptional to Sweden, for example, the welfare state, the consensual policy making, the historical compromise between capital and labor, and the dominance of social democracy, are less prominent today compared to a few decades ago although they are still certainly present. Global forces, increasing affluence, and an ideological shift towards neo-liberalism have contributed to making Sweden more of an average European industrialized democracy. The Handbook is divided into ten thematic Sections with four chapters and an Introduction in each Section. Thus, each theme is studied from different perspectives in order to provide the reader with a more multi-faceted picture of the political development in each theme.

Recensie(s)

the Handbook is a most welcome - and sorely needed - contribution. An impressively heavy, well-presented and organised tome, it paints a rich tapestry of Sweden's past and contemporary political and constitutional settlement - from the dawn of the exceptional Swedish model through to its present (alleged) twilight as a beacon of prosperity and equality. * Carl Truedsson, LSE Review of Books *
