Description - The New Politics of Welfare by Bill Jordan
This text provides a critical introduction to the debates and politics surrounding welfare reform in the UK, Europe and the US. It explains the origins and main tenets of the Blair-Clinton orthodoxy; compares policy in Western Europe with the dilemmas facing the governments of Central and Eastern Europe; assesses the broader prospects of European social policy in the struggle over economic and political integration; and places the reform process in the context of the post-war states' development. The author demonstrates how values derived from the family and voluntary associations are in danger of running counter to the more fundamental principles of liberal democracy and the requirements of transnational economic exchange.
