Bailey, Joe, ed. 1992. Social Europe. Essex: Longman Group. This book provides the most comprehensive and focused set of accounts currently available to social scientists of basic formations like industrial structure, social stratification and gender, and of how societies in Western Europe compare on important issues such as education, crime and policing, health and religion.

It provides a strong framework of sociological analysis of Europe and European societies in the latter part of the twentieth century.
