"The changing nature of the 'welfare state' in Britain over the last twenty-five years or so has been one of the key issues underpinning much of the debate about social policy development in the country. In this book Powell and Hewitt have provided an invaluable guide to the ideas and arguments which have been advanced to explain this process of change, and in so doing have helped to advance our appreciation and understanding of the broader context of policy practice ." - Pete Alcock, Professor of Social Policy and Administration, University of Birmingham
"As Powell and Hewitt write in their opening chapter, it is generally agreed that something has happened to welfare states at the end of the twentieth century, but quite what is a matter for complicated debate. This book will provide a valuable guide for students, attempting as it does to explain and assess the 'production of welfare' in Britain in the context of the wide-ranging, interdisciplinary literature on welfare restructuring." - Professor Jane Lewis, Barnett Professor of Social Policy, University of Oxford, UK
