Unsettling Welfare: Reconstruction of Social Policy - Gordon Hughes; Gail Lewis;

Routledge, 2001, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good. Would be Near Fine were it not for the blank lable to upper wrap.

The book deals with the rise and fall of the welfare state in the UK, and traces the ways in which the relationship between social welfare and the state has been reconstructed at the turn of the twentieth century. In particular, it focuses on the consequences of the break-up of the political, economic and social settlements that had sustained the 'old' welfare state in the thirty years after the Second World War. This is the fourth of five books in a new series of introductory social policy texts published by Routledge in association with The Open University. The series, called Social Policy: Welfare, Power and Diversity, examines central issues in the study of how social welfare is organized in the UK today.
