New Managerialism, New Welfare is a carefully integrated textbook that explores the continuing restructuring of the state and social welfare in the United Kingdom. It combines studies of specific policy areas - such as health, education, criminal justice, local government - with chapters that examine cross-cutting themes and developments.

This book applies key Foucauldian ideas to the way in which the public sector has been reconfigured. Very interesting and contemporary piece of work.
