9780691001128: States, Social Knowledge, and the Origins of Modern Social Policies


From the 1850s to the 1920s, 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. 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.


Introduced by the editors, the essays include Part I on the emergence of modern social knowledge by Ira Katznelson, Anson Rabinbach, and Björn Wittrock and Peter Wagner; Part II on reformist social scientists and public policymaking by Dietrich Rueschemeyer and Ronan Van Rossem, Libby Schweber, and John R. Sutton; Part III on state managers and the uses of social knowledge by Stein Kuhnle and Sheldon Garon, and a conclusion by Rueschemeyer and Theda Skocpol.

From the Back Cover :

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. The essays are introduced by the editors and divided into three sections: Part I on the emergence of modern social knowledge by Ira Katznelson, Anson Rabinbach, and Bjorn Wittrock and Peter Wagner; Part II on reformist social scientists and public policymaking by Dietrich Rueschemeyer and Ronan Van Rossem, Libby Schweber, and John R. Sutton; and Part III on state managers and the uses of social knowledge by Stein Kuhnle and Sheldon Garon. A conclusion by Rueschemeyer and Skocpol follows.

Review :

"The book is not just for specialists. All students of the welfare state, comparative public policy, American and comparative politics, and the sociology of knowledge should read this volume or some portions of it in order to understand better the development of states, social knowledge, and the origins of modern social policies and how these interactive processes have actually occurred."--American Political Science Review
