Capitalist development and democracy by Dietrich Rueschemeyer( Book )
30 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 810 libraries worldwide
The relationship of capitalist development to democracy, however, is not mechanical. As the authors show, it depends on a complex interplay of three clusters of power: the balance of power among social classes, power relations between the state and society, and transnational structures of economic and political power. Looking to the future, the book concludes with some reflections on current prospects for the development of stable democracy in Latin America and Eastern Europe
Bringing the state back in by Social Science Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
43 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 794 libraries worldwide
Until recently, dominant theoretical paradigms in the comparative social sciences did not highlight states as organizational structures or as potentially autonomous actors. Indeed, the term 'state' was rarely used. Current work, however, increasingly views the state as an agent which, although influenced by the society that surrounds it, also shapes social and political processes. The contributors to this volume, which includes some of the best recent interdisciplinary scholarship on states in relation to social structures, make use of theoretically engaged comparative and historical investiga
Comparative historical analysis in the social sciences ( Book )
25 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 566 libraries worldwide
"Comparative Historical Analysis in the Social Sciences will serve as an invaluable resource for scholars in the field, and it will represent a challenge to many other social scientists - especially those who have raised skeptical concerns about comparative historical analysis in the past."--Jacket

States, social knowledge, and the origins of modern social policies by Dietrich Rueschemeyer( Book )
16 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 489 libraries worldwide
Laws regulating the industrial labor process, pensions for the elderly, unemployment insurance, and measures to educate and ensure the welfare of children were enacted in many industrializing capitalist nations from the 1850s to the 1920s. This same period saw the development of modern social sciences. The eight essays collected here examine the reciprocal influence of social policy and academic research in comparative context, ranging across policy areas and encompassing developments in Britain, the United States, Germany, France, Canada, Scandinavia, and Japan

Usable theory : analytic tools for social and political research by Dietrich Rueschemeyer( Book )
15 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 329 libraries worldwide
The project of twentieth-century sociology and political science - to create predictive scientific theory - resulted in few full-scale theories that can be taken off the shelf and successfully applied to empirical puzzles. Yet focused 'theory frames' that formulate problems and point to relevant causal factors and conditions have produced vibrant, insightful, and analytically oriented empirical research. While theory frames alone cannot offer explanation or prediction, they guide empirical theory formation and give direction to inferences from empirical evidence. They are also responsible for much of the progress in the social sciences. In "Usable Theory", distinguished sociologist Dietrich Rueschemeyer shows graduate students and researchers how to construct theory frames and use them to develop valid empirical hypotheses in the course of empirical social and political research. Combining new ideas as well as analytic tools derived from classic and recent theoretical traditions, the book enlarges the rationalist model of action by focusing on knowledge, norms, preferences, and emotions, and it discusses larger social formations that shape elementary forms of action. Throughout, "Usable Theory" seeks to mobilize the implicit theoretical social knowledge used in everyday life. It offers tools for theory building in social and political research. It complements the rationalist model of action with discussions of knowledge, norms, preferences, and emotions. It relates theoretical ideas to problems of methodology. It situates elementary forms of action in relation to larger formations. It combines new ideas with themes from classic and more recent theories
Globalization and the future of the welfare state by Miguel Glatzer( Book )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 328 libraries worldwide
"Beginning in the last quarter of the twentieth century, the global political economy has undergone a profound transformation. Democracy has swept the globe, and both rich and developing nations must compete in an increasingly integrated world economy." "How are social welfare policies being affected by this wave of economic globalization? Leading researchers explore the complex question in this comparative study. The developing countries they analyze in Globalization and the Future of the Welfare State demonstrate that although there is great variability across countries and regions, domestic political processes and institutions play key roles in managing the disruptions wrought by globalization."--Jacket
