Forming Nation, Framing Welfare - Gail Lewis

Routledge, 2001, Paperback ..
Condition: Near Fine. Plain white lable to upper wrap otherwise a very well presented copy.

This book considers the ways in which the development of social welfare in the UK has been intimately woven into the construction of the nation. The growth of the state's involvement in social welfare is at the heart of these processes, but the book also explores the ways in which the making of the family, struggles over social order and the rise of philanthropy played central roles in the construction of both nation and welfare. Drawing on a range of case studies dealing with the family, education, poverty and unemployment, this innovative book teases out the intersections between images of the nation and social welfare's purposes, providers and beneficiaries.
