Description - Social Policy and Risk by Ian Culpitt
This text applies ideas of risk - as expressed by theorists such as Beck and Foucault - to changes in welfare. The author demonstrates how neo-liberals have used aspects of risk to attack welfare dependency and shows how rhetorics of risk have been used to reshape contemporary politics. He challenges the apparently common-sense dominance of neo-liberal arguments in social policy and argues that the underlying philosophy of neo-liberalism is individual responsibility and the risk that goes with it.
