Description - Marginalization and Social Welfare in China by Linda Wong

Marginalization and Social Welfare in China examines how those claiming benefits fare under the existing social welfare arrangements and is structured around four main issues: What are the characteristics of the social welfare system with regard to state policy, philosophical values, delivery systems and funding? What determines the system's shape and scope? What are the past and current challenges? What is the theoretical relevance of the Chinese experience? Linda Wong concludes that most claimants are denied the respect and help that is due to them and that existing welfare values face ever greater challenges under the process of reform. This book provides a systematic analysis that defines and accounts for the contours and operation of China's welfare system. It is underpinned by recent empirical research and strong comparative theory, and will be welcomed as a significant advance in furthering our understanding of social welfare in China.
