Overview

The Crisis of Welfare in East Asia adopts a unique and critical perspective on contemporary social welfare policies in East Asia. This edited volume reflects on current welfare theories and challenges the dominant productivist ideology that overemphasizes the influence of work and family. James Lee and Kam-Wah Chan bring together authors from different social policy domains to provide an updated assessment of inadequacies and limitations in current social policies as well as the problematic theories guiding them. The authors demystify the so-called 'East Asian Welfare Model' and reengage themselves in the identification of an appropriate welfare ideology, which includes a selective integration of social policy and economic development. The Crisis of Welfare in East Asia is a dynamic and enlightening read that will interest students of public policy and those interested in welfare capitalism.

Editorial Reviews

James Midgley
In this thoughtful and interesting book, James Lee and Kam-wah Chan examine different facets of social policy in East Asia and ask whether recent developments are indicative of a crisis in welfare. The book addresses many complex issues and makes a significant contribution to the literature. It deserves to be widely read.
