Social welfare in global context by James Midgley( )

26 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Midgley provides a broad overview of social welfare, outlining key institutions, terminology, historical research, and approaches. He also details reasons for the existence of international social welfare and the challenges that arise from it. The author includes an important section on applied international social welfare that addresses the concerns of practitioners--concerns that have been neglected in much of the literature in the field. An entire section of the book is devoted to issues of social work practice, social developments, the activities of international agencies, and their collaborative efforts. While practical application is an important focus of the book, several chapters deal with key theoretical debates in the field. The author also includes descriptive chapters that provide comprehensive accounts of world social conditions and social welfare institutions

Social policy and change in East Asia by Kam Wah Chan( )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social Policy and Change in East Asia is a collection of essays from a group of indigenous East Asian social policy researchers who met bi-annually to discuss social development issues. The book's focus is the policy responses of respective East Asian government since the 2008 financial tsunami struck the region. Together, the essays in Social Policy and Change in East Asia argue that traditional social policy approach has failed to account for the problem of economic volatility and to devise policy measures that can promote long-term stability. Avoiding a static and Eurocentric approach, the authors of this book seek to unravel the meaning of the social development approach in various policy contexts. This book supports a dynamic understanding of social policy formulation that does not neglect the problem of economic turbulence in policy and planning

Community participation, social development, and the state by James Midgley( Book )

15 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although community participation is one of the most popular themes in development studies today, many of the complex and controversial issues attending the concept have not been properly debated. A major concern is the role of the state in community participation. While some believe that the state should encourage and sponsor community participation, others reject state involvement on the ground that it dilutes participatory ideals. This is the first book to examine in detail the question of the role of the state in community participation. It asks whether state involvement is beneficial or harmful to community participation and whether community and state resources can be harmonized to promote social development. In addition to its central theme, this book traces the history of community participation ideas and provides a detailed exposition of the theory and practice of the subject. It is essential reading for all students of development studies, public administration, sociology, social work and social administration interested in Third World issues
