Description - Towards a Post-Fordist Welfare State? by Roger Burrows
Significant socio-economic changes have occurred over the last 20 years in the UK and other advanced capitalist societies. Consequently, Fordism, a bureaucratic, hierarchical model of industrial development has matured into post-Fordism, with its greater emphasis on the individual, freedom of choice and flexibility, generating fresh debate and analysis. "Towards a Post-Fordist Welfare State" represents leading authors from a number of disciplines - social policy, sociology, politics and geography - who have played a key role in promoting and criticizing post-Fordist theory. The text presents a thorough examination of the implications of applying post-Fordism to contemporary restructuring of the British welfare state. The work should appeal to undergraduates, postgraduates and lecturers in social policy and administration, sociology, politics and public sector economics.
