About the Author

Bo Rothstein is the August Roehss Professor in Political Science and codirector of the Quality of Government Institute at Goeteborg University in Sweden.


"[This] is required reading for Scandinavian scholars, comparativists interested in the politics of reform, and policy analysts. The leadership of Sweden's Social Democratic Party would be well advised to read the Rothstein volume for valuable advice on the institutional conditions for successful policy reform."
-American Political Science Review|

"Bo Rothstein's engaging and significant book emphasizes the nature of the state as a central element in explaining the success or failure of social democratic parties. . . . An important addition to the literature surrounding the limits of social democracy and the conclusions raise substantial questions for radical parties outside Sweden."
-Political Studies|

"Sheds new light on the much discussed area of Swedish labor market policy, as well as the lesser known sphere of educational policy; [Rothstein] demonstrates that the much-admired Swedish Social Democratic party was not uniformly successful in its reformist efforts. . . . Rothstein's analysis indicates the importance of grounding reforms in institutional changes as well as policy innovations."
-Political Science Quarterly
