The welfare state in post-industrial society : a global perspective by Jason Powell( )

22 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, major social forces such as: aging populations, social trends, migration patterns, and the globalization of economies, have reshaped social welfare policies and practices across the globe. Multinational corporations, NGOs, and other international organizations have begun to influence social policy at a national and local level. Among the many ramifications of these changes is that globalizing influences may hinder the ability of individual nation-states to effect policies that are beneficial to them on a local level. With contributions from different countries worldwide, this collected work represents the first major comparative analysis on the effect of globalization on the international welfare state. The Welfare State in Post-Industrial Society is divided into two major sections: the first draws from a number of leading social welfare researchers from diverse countries who point to the nation-state as case studies; highlighting how it goes about establishing and revising social welfare provisions. The second portion of the volume then moves to a more global perspective in its analysis and questioning of the impact of globalisation on citizenship and marketization. A unique aspect of the volume is that all authors participated in an iterative process to identify a series of consensus themes that each author was then asked to integrate into their chapters as they were relevant

The need for theory : critical approaches to social gerontology by Simon Biggs( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is age by itself inclusive enough to make sense of changes and transitions over the life course? The Need for Theory explores how best to alloy the standard analytic techniques employed by social gerontologists to provide a more effective, nuanced, and insightful view of the assumptive realities thought to characterize the later years. Readers will come away from this book a little less sanguine about the nature of cause and effect within the experience of aging." "The Need for Theory speaks to the burgeoning need for critical thinking in social gerontology. The editors have brought together some of the foremost contributors to theoretical advances in the field. This volume incorporates state-of-the-art theorizing with a focus on selected topical areas facing gerontologists around the world. Using their keen insights into substantive issues, the contributors examine personal and structural changes affecting individuals over the life course. Extolling the heed for theory is not enough; the contributors focus their insights on a panoply of substantive issues, linking the personal with the political and with the structural parameters that shape the process of aging, no matter where it occurs. Building on a discerning overview of conceptual questions in contemporary gerontology, from social constructionism, to feminism, to social-psychological, structural, and political economy perspectives, the authors map key issues, paradoxes, and contradictions facing gerontology now and in the future. Their discussions are sure to engage readers who are themselves concerned with developing explanatory frameworks that reach beyond facile descriptions of existing practices."--Jacket

Civil rights activist Joe Hendricks was born on March 22, 1927 in Boligee, Alabama. In 1941, after finishing the eighth grade at Jane Woods Elementary School, Hendricks began working at Jim Dandy, a mill that produced dog food, grits and meal. Eventually Hendricks became a pack operator for the mill and joined the Workers’ Union as a chairman of trustees. However, after Hendricks joined the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, he lost his job at the mill and was forced into unemployment for ten months before eventually regaining the same position some years later. During Hendricks’ unemployment, he became the guard for civil rights activist and religious leader Fred Shuttlesworth. Hendricks experienced first-hand examples of violent racism, including attacks against protesters by renowned Alabama police chief Bull Connor, and the bombing of Reverend Shuttlesworth’s house in 1956. Hendricks passed away on August 23, 2012 at age 85
