Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'Arjan de Haan has written a most valuable book on social policy ... De Haan gives particular attention to drawing together the interaction of social and economic policies - one of the foremost themes in current global social policy. De Haan's book is well timed.' - Denys Correll, ICSW Executive Director

'The main audience for which the book is written is clearly the donor community. Nevertheless, given its breadth, the book is also a good buy for students and others who are interested in a quick introduction to the main debates and an extensive list of relevant readings' - Jos Mooij, Institute of Social Sciences, The Netherlands
