The impact of poststructuralism on thinking in the social sciences and humanities over the last decade has been profound. However, there has been little exploration of the implications of applying poststructuralism to a critical analysis of social policy. Today, with the decline of the welfare state and the emergence of "neoliberalism," policy makers urgently need new tools of analysis in order to rethink the relationship between citizens and the state. Putting constant emphasis on the theme of citizenship, "Poststructuralism, Citizenship and" "Social Policy" shows how poststructuralist ideas can be usefully applied in the areas of welfare, health, education, and science and technology policy. It is valuable reading for students and researchers in welfare studies, the sociology of health and medicine, political studies, social work, social administration, and education.
