Major thinkers in welfare : contemporary issues in historical perspective by Victor George( )

This is the first book to examine the views of a number of theorists from ancient times to the 19th century on a range of welfare issues: wealth, poverty and inequality; slavery; gender issues and the family; child rearing and education; crime and punishment; and the role of the government vis-a-vis market provision. The book also looks at the values of the various theorists as well as their perception of human nature, for these tend to underpin their welfare views. The book will enable the reader to view contemporary issues in historical context and will be essential reading for students of social policy, gender issues, community care, social work and sociology. --Book Jacket

"European Welfare Futures presents an analysis of developments in social policy in the main EU member states. It provides a systematic account of welfare retrenchment and assesses the competing explanations of this process. The authors provide evidence for the view that an 'ever closer union' in social policy will require a much more difficult process than that which led to monetary union." "The book makes a contribution to understanding how welfare policy in Europe will develop over the next few years. It offers an account of the forces affecting the direction of policy, and stresses the role of social and political institutions in explaining why countries differ."

Full employment is a thing of the past. The traditional family seems to be crumbling away. We are threatened by environmental disaster within a generation. The gap between the rich and the poor is widening. In spite of recent reductions in crime, the issue of law and order is seldom out of the news or far from our minds."--Jacket
