The book provides a systematic evaluation of the role played by business in the development of the modern welfare state. When and why have employers supported the development of institutions of social insurance that provide benefits to workers for various employment-related risks? What factors explain the variation in the social policy preferences of employers? What is the relative importance of business and labor-based organization in the negotiation of a new social policy? This book studies these critical questions, by examining the role played by German and French producers in eight social policy reforms spanning nearly a century of social policy development. The analysis demonstrates that major social policies were adopted by cross-class alliances comprising labor-based organizations and key sectors of the business community.

Review:

"Her insight that the course followed by each nation depended on its industrial structure and the particular form of its class conflicts is strikingly new and will likely inspire further research, particularly by business historians." Business History Review

"This is an ambitious, provocative, and impressive book." American Journal of Sociology
