This book aims to serve as a core social policy text on the welfare state which brings together leading figures to provide a coherent introductory volume. It puts contemporary experience into historical context and introduces debates on welfare policies into the next century. This book is intended for undergraduate courses on the welfare state within social policy, politics and social history. It should also have strong appeal for professional qualifying courses in health, education and social work.
