  • Notes:
    This book is based upon research conducted for the LLAKES centre funded by the ESRC. Building on Green and Janmaat?s previous work on education, equality and social cohesion, the book analyses the various mechanisms that hold different societies together and how these are withstanding the strains of the current economic crisis. In an original, and highly interdisciplinary, mixed method, comparative approach, drawing on evidence from historical sociology, political science and political economy, Green and Janmaat identify four major traditions of social cohesion in developed western and east Asian societies, each with specific institutional and cultural foundations. An extensive statistical analysis of contemporary administrative and attitudinal data for 30 plus countries demonstrates that there are still distinctive ?regimes of social cohesion? in ?liberal?, ?social market? and ?social democratic? countries and that they achieve social bonding in quite different ways. As the crisis of gobalisation unfolds in the wake of the global financial crisis, social cohesion in each regime is vulnerable at different points.
