For over 15 years, Michael Jones' Australian Welfare State has been recognised as the central reference to social policy in Australia. It summarises all key economic and demographic data and provides an overview of current trends and arguments. This fourth edition has been completely rewritten to take account of the radically changing international perspectives on the welfare state. It also provides a new emphasis on policy analysis and evaluation, showing how Australia can be compared with other affluent countries. Jones shows that current social programs create a dependent class of 27 per cent of the Australian population, and that existing policies are incoherent and uncoordinated. He argues that other western countries have developed more effective solutions to the provision of social benefits. The Australian Welfare State contains an independent and systematic evaluation of Australian social policy; a comprehensive history of the Australian welfare state; analysis of key policy areas: income support, employment, health, housing and caring services; over 170 tables and graphs from local and international sources. The Australian Welfare State is an essential reference work for policy makers, strategic planners, economists and students
