Description - Divisions of Welfare by Norman Ginsburg

This textbook recounts the major policy developments in Sweden, the FRG, the United States and Britain since the 1930s and 1940s and concentrates on the restructuring of social policy since the world recession of the mid 1970s. Chapters on each welfare state analyzes five areas of policy - policy ideology and welfare expenditure; income maintenance policies and outcomes; race and racial inequalities; women and family policies; and the health care system. Integrating class, race and gender perspectives into comparative social policy analysis, Norman Ginsburg focuses on the impact of social and economic policies on social inequalities, as well as on the role of labour movements, anti-racist movements and women's movements in shaping social policy. The book is intended for academic, researchers and students in social policy, social administration, public administration, applied sociology and politics.
