Overview

Changing Welfare, Changing States: New Directions in Social Policy / Edition 1

Changing Welfare, Changing States invites us to think differently about the remaking of the relationships between welfare, state and nation. Informed by the 'cultural turn' in the social sciences, the book reflects a commitment to the importance of rethinking social policy at a time when social, political, and intellectual certainties have been profoundly unsettled.
