Beyond the Welfare State?: The New Political Economy of Welfare
This third edition of 'Beyond the Welfare State' embraces all the most important theoretical and empirical developments in welfare state studies of recent years. Working within an explicitly comparative framework, the book draws on a wealth of international evidence to survey what are now the most pressing issues concerning the future of welfare; among them, globalization, demographic change, declining fertility, postindustrialism and immigration. It draws extensively on the explosion of work on welfare states that has emerged within the North American political science community over the past ten years, as well as giving detailed attention to developments in the UK, and in continental and northern Europe and beyond.
