9780198278566: Sweden: Social Democracy in Practice

Describing the theoretical underpinnings of Sweden's social democratic society and the historical factors which influenced the development of the Swedish system, this study portrays social democracy as a highly successful, functioning social system whose principles of economic well-being, fair remuneration for work, social solidarity, democracy, participation, access to information, and respect for the environment correspond to the way its members choose to act and live.

About the Author:

Professor of Political Science, at Vanier College, Quebec, Canada

Review:


"Excellent....Milner set the work at a readable level for undergraduates....He does a wonderful job bringing in Swedish history to account for the welfare state, and his 6-point 'definition' is superb."--Byron Nordstrom, Gustavus Adolphus College


"Milner's interesting book seeks to explain what he calls the 'Swedish paradox'--how the country combines economic efficiency in an internationally competitive world with a sense of equality based on common shared values of cooperation and compromise."--Financial Times


"Increasingly, Sweden's public policies are viewed as a model for other countries to emulate. Henry Milner's critical evaluation of Swedish social democracy in practice is a much needed, and highly valuable work--and it could not be more timely as economic and social reform sweeps through Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. I highly recommend this work."--Derek Shearer, Occidental College, Los Angeles


"An excellent advanced study of the political-economic system of Sweden, well grounded in its history and culture. An excellent book for graduate courses and very advanced undergraduates."--Ralph E. Bunch, Portland State University


"An excellent synthesis of Swedish politics, economics, and society. Sweden shows that there is more than one route to a dynamic economy coupled with a sustainable society, and Professor Milner shows us why."--Robert Kuttner
