Choice Review from previous edition This landmark book achieves its aspiration to provide the "most authoritative survey and critique of the welfare state yet published"... it should be part of the foundation collection in any college library. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and above.
Journal of Social Policy This is a landmark book for international scholarship in social policy. It has been compiled by some of the leading international scholars in the field and published, in some style, by Oxford University Press all academics in the field should ensure that university libraries acquire copies of the book. It will prove to be an essential reference for all those studying social policy, as well as many in politics, public administration, sociology and other cognate
subjects. More generally, it is attention to detail, co-existing with breadth of vision and reach, which make this such an attractive book. The editors and their contributors are addressing most of the big questions that underpin the history of the welfare state and its future prospects, and they are doing
this on an international scale. If you are not passionate about social policy before encountering this Handbook, then surely you will be once you have begun to delve into it.
