Editorial Reviews

'In this powerful new text, Vivien Lowndes and Mark Roberts put forward a conception of institutionalism that is more comprehensive, integrative and analytically insistent than anything to date. Both those committed to an institutionalist approach, and those who are not, will benefit greatly from this study, which is likely to become an essential point of reference in the literature.' – Andrew MacIntyre, Australian National University
