9780199650514: The Oxford Handbook of the Welfare State (Oxford Handbooks)

The Oxford Handbook of the Welfare State is the authoritative and definitive guide to the contemporary welfare state. In a volume consisting of nearly fifty newly-written chapters, a broad range of the world's leading scholars offer a comprehensive account of everything one needs to know about the modern welfare state. The Handbook is divided into eight sections. It opens with three chapters that evaluate the philosophical case for (and against) the welfare state. Surveys of the welfare state's history and of the approaches taken to its study are followed by four extended sections, running to some thirty-five chapters in all, which offer a comprehensive and in-depth survey of our current state of knowledge across the whole range of issues that the welfare state embraces. The first of these sections looks at inputs and actors (including the roles of parties, unions, and employers), the impact of gender and religion, patterns of migration and a changing public opinion, the role of international organisations and the impact of globalization. The next two sections cover policy inputs (in areas such as pensions, health care, disability, care of the elderly, unemployment, and labour market activation) and their outcomes (in terms of inequality and poverty, macroeconomic performance, and retrenchment). The seventh section consists of seven chapters which survey welfare state experience around the globe (and not just within the OECD). Two final chapters consider questions about the global future of the welfare state.

The individual chapters of the Handbook are written in an informed but accessible way by leading researchers in their respective fields giving the reader an excellent and truly up-to-date knowledge of the area under discussion. Taken together, they constitute a comprehensive compendium of all that is best in contemporary welfare state research and a unique guide to what is happening now in this most crucial and contested area of social and political development.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "This landmark book achieves its aspiration to provide the "most authoritative survey and critique of the welfare state yet published... it should be part of the foundation collection in any college library. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates and
above."

--Choice

"This is a landmark book for international scholarship in social policy. It has been compiled by some of the leading international scholars in the field and published, in some style, by Oxford University Press all academics in the field should ensure that university libraries acquire copies of
the book. It will prove to be an essential reference for all those studying social policy, as well as many in politics, public administration, sociology and other cognate subjects. More generally, it is attention to detail, co-existing with breadth of vision and reach, which make this such an
attractive book. The editors and their contributors are addressing most of the big questions that underpin the history of the welfare state and its future prospects, and they are doing this on an international scale. If you are not passionate about social policy before encountering this Handbook,
then surely you will be once you have begun to delve into it."

--Journal of Social Policy
