Beyond the welfare state? : the new political economy of welfare by Christopher Pierson ( Book )
54 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 1,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Comprehensively revised and rewritten, the third edition of the book embraces all the most important theoretical and empirical developments in welfare state studies of recent years. Working within an explicitly comparative framework, the book draws on a wealth of international evidence to survey what are now the most pressing issues concerning the future of welfare: among them, globalization, demographic change, declining fertility, postindustrialism and immigration. It draws extensively on the explosion of work on welfare states that has emerged within the North American political science community over the past ten years, as well as giving detailed attention to developments in the UK, and in continental and northern Europe and beyond." "The third edition of Beyond the Welfare State? remains the most comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the complex of issues that surround welfare reform. It will be required reading for anyone who wants to come to terms with what is really at stake in arguments about the future of welfare."--BOOK JACKET

Hard choices : social democracy in the twenty-first century by Christopher Pierson ( Book )
6 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As the twenty-first century dawned, social democratic parties across Europe and beyond found themselves newly, and rather surprisingly, in the ascendant. Britain's New Labour was only the most spectacular in a whole series of political restorations. For many, this renewal only became possible when 'modernizing' social democratic parties jettisoned their old ideological and institutional baggages, setting off down a 'third way' that rejected the outmoded idea of both left and right. The argument of Hard Choices is that this view is doubly misleading: it misrepresents the past and misunderstands the present."--Jacket
