Four Volume Set
Edited by:

January 2011 | 1 672 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This collection provides a focal point for the study and analysis of welfare in developed societies. It comprises the key contributions that have been made to the understanding of welfare by leading theorists and researchers of social policy from the last century to the present day. It draws in particular on seminal articles and papers published in academic journals and major edited collections which have been important in underpinning both later academic study and policy development. A wide historical reach gives readers across the world access to a range of material that focuses on international and comparative analysis.

Part One: Welfare Theory

Part Two: The Development of Welfare
