‘As welfare states grow up, they begin to think more carefully about their future. Jane Lewis is showing them how best to do so. This stellar collection of articles by top European scholars combines creative thinking about the new social investment state with impressive empirical research on specific forms of public support for family work.’ Nancy Folbre, University of Massachusetts, US The nature of the relationship between children, parents and the state has been central to the growth of the modern welfare state and has long been a problem for western liberal democracies. Welfare states have undergone profound restructuring over the past two decades and families also have changed, in terms of their form and the nature of thecontributions that men and women make to them. More attention is being paid to children by policymakers, but often because of their importance as future ‘citizen workers’. The book explores the implications of changes to the welfare state for children in a range of countries.
