Democracy, Capitalism, and the Welfare State

Debating Social Order in Postwar West Germany, 1949-1989

Peter C. Caldwell

  • Uses West Germany as a case study to understand how capitalism, democracy, and welfare states can fit together, despite their often conflicting motivations and priorities
  • Argues that the welfare state informed and altered basic questions of democracy and its relationship to capitalism
  • Illuminates the rise of systems theory as a different approach to social policy theory
