    Policy Press 2016; US$ 36.95

    Drawing on examples across a range of policy areas, this important new book examines the radically changing system of governance and delivery of social welfare in the UK and assesses how changes in social policy and governance interact in the delivery of social welfare. more...

  • Gender, migration and the global race for talentby Anna Boucher

    Manchester University Press 2016; US$ 110.00

    The global race for skilled immigrants seeks to attract the best global workers. In the pursuit of these individuals, governments may incidentally discriminate on gender grounds. Existing gendered differences in the global labour market related to life course trajectories, pay gaps and gendered divisions in occupational specialisation are also present... more...

  • Marriage and Values in Public Policyby Elizabeth van Acker

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Marriage is a site of political conflict. It is a controversial issue in the UK, Australia and the US where there is a clash of values between neoliberal governments and diverse groups either strongly opposing or supporting marriage. In the meantime, fewer couples are marrying, while other family forms are more widely accepted. This book explores... more...

    This book presents rich empirical analyses of the most important movements in Chile’s post-transition era: the Student Movement, the Mapuche Movement, the Labor Movement, the Feminist Movement, and the Environmental Movement.

  • Against Inclusivenessby James Kalb

    Angelico Press 2013; US$ 6.99

    Diversity. Inclusiveness. Equality.—ubiquitous words in 21st-century political and social life. But how do those who police the limits of acceptable discourse employ these as verbal weapons to browbeat their often hapless fellows into having a "real conversation"? How do these terms function as mere doublespeak for the expectation of full-scale capitulation... more...

  • Rethinking Neoliberalismby Sanford F. Schram; Marianna Pavlovskaya

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Neoliberalism remains a flashpoint for political contestation around the world. For decades now, neoliberalism has been in the process of becoming a globally ascendant default logic that prioritizes using economic rationality for all major decisions, in all sectors of society, at the collective level of state policymaking as well as the personal level... more...

  • The High Cost of Good Intentionsby John F. Cogan

    Stanford University Press 2017; US$ 45.00

    This book traces the evolution of U.S. federal entitlement programs from the Revolutionary War to modern times to identify and understand the common economic and political forces that have caused their nearly continuous growth. more...

  • Social Work in a Corporate Eraby Linda Davies; Peter Leonard

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    A striking new feature of the welfare systems in many Western countries is the extent to which market relations have permeated social services. Conceptions of 'risk management' now dominate the way parents and children are responded to, while new technologies aim to 'measure' their relationship with state service providers. Bureaucratic control is... more...

    Edward Elgar Publishing 2017; US$ 40.00

Beyond ‘green growth’ (which assumes an unprecedented rise in the... more...
