The welfare state is under attack around the globe: in this accessible book, Burden provides an overall examination of social welfare and a comparative study of policies in different societies. He explores alternative ideas on the development of social policy, and offers a wide spread of comparative material. Analyzing the ideologies underlying national and social policies, he classifies each one in terms of 'radical', 'reformist' and the 'right'. Taking an historically informed approach to understanding social policy, this book is an ideal introduction for policy makers, practitioners and students, providing an understanding of national policy in a global context.
