Overview

Australia's Welfare Wars Revisited: The players, the politics and the ideologies by Philip Mendes

This represents a substantial revision of Philip Mendes' successful textbook Australia’s Welfare Wars, in which the author explains—and questions—many of the values and assumptions that underpin contemporary social welfare policies. In particular, the book is critical of the Neo-liberal or Economic rationalist ideas that now dominate the welfare debates in Australia and overseas, and instead demonstrates and reaffirms the ongoing relevance of social-democratic and welfare-state ideals.
