This book looks at European societies at the end of a turbulent millennium which saw western Europe slowly rise to global domination, and then rapidly decline to its present position, one that is prosperous but behind the USA in world influence. It is the only book by a single sociologist to make a systematic comparison of virtually all west European countries in relation to Japan and the USA, and across a wide range of social institutions.

`This is a very impressive book.. a major source of wide ranging information on the social contours of Western Europe. The style is clear and the argumentation lucid.'
Richard Hyman, LSE
'The clearly structured presentation is founded on a broad empirical base. ... It also includes references to the major theories. The author is successful in pointing out the fundamental structures of European changes since the middle of the past century and examines the relevant concepts in a
thoughtful way. The wealth of information and the style of writing make the work an ideal study book.' European Journal of Social Work
