Development and Crisis of the Welfare State by Evelyne Huber
Book DescriptionThis text offers a systematic examination of the origins, character, effects and prospects of generous welfare states in advanced industrial democracies in the post-World War II era. The authors demonstrate that prolonged government by different parties results in different welfare states, with strong differences in levels of poverty and inequality. Combining quantitative studies with historical qualitative research, the authors look closely at nine countries that achieved high degrees of social protection through different types of welfare regimes: social democratic states, Christian democratic states, and "wage earner" states.

Although inequality in Latin America ranks among the worst in the world, it has notably declined over the years, offset by improvements in health care and education, enhanced programs for social assistance, and increases in the minimum wage. The author argues that the resurgence of democracy in Latin America is key to this change.
