The State or the Market : Politics and Welfare in Contemporary Britain Paperback / softback

Edited by Martin Loney, Robert Bocock, John H. Clarke, Allan Douglas Cochrane, Peggotty A M Graham, Michael J Wilson

Part of the Published in Association with The Open University series

Description

This collection deals with the central questions which have emerged from the break-up of the postwar political consensus around the welfare state.

A series of distinguished contributors, including exponents of alternative positions on welfare from the right, left and centre, examine key issues in the disputes over the relationship between the state and welfare. Individual chapters both explore the different political and theoretical issues in the debate, and concentrate on their application in key areas of social policy.

Particular attention is given to the role of social work, and public policy and the family.

The final section of the book examines the political sources of the current crisis of social policy, and the prospects for a resolution of the crisis of the welfare state. The State or the Market is a set book on the Open University Course D211, Social Problems and Social Welfare.
