Making Capitalism Fit for Society
But maintenance of that tension depends on the enduring strength of trade unions and other critical groups in civil society - a strength that is threatened by neoliberalism s increasingly intolerant onward march. Outlining the principles for a renewed and more assertive social democracy, this timely and important book shows that real possibilities exist to create a better world than that which is being offered by the wealthy elites who dominate our public and private lives.

About Colin Crouch
Table of contents
LSE Review of Books
"A lively argument, sometimes sour, sometimes hopeful, but always backed up by telling facts on the future of capitalist society."
Richard Sennett, London School of Economics
''A new book explains why attempts by western countries to 'ring fence' themselves against immigration are failing''
John Moore, Morning Star "Faced by a dominant neo-liberal ideology and stripped of a historic agent, social democracy needs to transform itself. Colin Crouch is unique in his ability to dissect the dilemmas and suggest positive strategies. Making Capitalism Fit For Society is the best book so far for anyone wanting to start the journey of renewal."
Neal Lawson, Chair of Compass
"A very good book with many thoughts for a more social policy in Europe"
