9781859720370: Civil Society and State Relations in Sweden

Sweden, as many other prosperous nations, is presently reassessing its national goals, political culture and collective identity. Newer groups in society are demanding equal treatment, and others whose struggles for recognition are older and unwon, are successfully mobilizing support for political change. Social democratic political hegemony has been eroded and other new political forces are now reinterpreting past political ideas and methods of action and a need for historical perspective. This book analyses the history of Swedish civil society. Social movements and interest organizations have played crucial roles in Sweden. Their history is also Swedish history and concerns struggles for political recognition and welfare state development and cutbacks. Theoretical developments within sociology, social psychology, public choice and political science are combined to enrich the analysis. Some of the theoretical elements used in this book are organizational waves of development, organizational life cycles, political opportunity structure, and topologies of collective action organizations. The book analyzes Swedish civil society history from the Midas to the 1990s. Swedish civil society history is divided into six periods. The role played by collective action organizations in the important developments in politics, society and economy in this one hundred and fifty year period are described, compared and analyzed. The primary focus is the impact of change brought about by these developments on collective action organizations.

About the Author:

Michele Micheletti, Department of Political Science, University of Stockholm, Sweden

Review:

'...Micheletti demonstrates a remarkable ability to combine social movement theory, interest group theory, the historical-sociological approach to the study of politics and analysis of state policy...This pioneering book, while surely enhancing interest in Swedish politics, should be read and emulated by scholars of other political systems.' Professor Andrew McFarland, University of Illinois, USA '...excellent...could usefully be added to reading lists for courses at any level on interest groups or European politics...'
