James Midgley, drawing on a wealth of scholarship, introduces social protection – its global history, underlying concepts and values, its impact and the challenges it faces. Showing the importance of social protection, while demonstrating its breadth and complexity, this book makes an important contribution to the promotion of social justice.’ – David Piachaud, London School of Economics, UK March 2022 160 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 625 0 £85.00 / $120.00 March 2022 Paperback 978 1 80037 627 4 £15.95 / $24.95 Elgar Advanced Introductions series Textbook available on examination Advanced Introduction to the Sociology of Peace Processes John D. Brewer, Queen’s University Belfast, UK, Stellenbosch University, South Africa and Warwick University, UK ‘John Brewer provides a comprehensive and insightful introduction to peace processes, bringing the consideration of war, violence and peace into the mainstream of sociological thought where it belongs. This is a major contribution to both central theoretical debates on order and conflict and empirical studies of the resolution and governance of violent conflicts. It will stand as a landmark in the discussion of this central political issue of our times.’ – John Scott CBE, Plymouth University, UK 2022 160 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 738 2 £85.00 / $120.00 2022 Paperback 978 1 83910 740 5 £15.95 / $24.95 Elgar Advanced Introductions series Get your examination copy here Handbook of Anti-Environmentalism Edited by David Tindall, University of British Columbia, Canada, Mark C.J. Stoddart, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada and Riley E.

The editors of the Handbook have assembled a stellar roster of international contributors who interrogate every aspect of the problem from media framing, to climate denial networks, to neoliberal governance. Highly recommended to university libraries and to environmental activists and scholars.’ – John Hannigan, University of Toronto, Canada March 2022 c 512 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 021 5 £205.00 / $295.00 Welfare States in the 21st Century The New Five Giants Confronting Societal Progress Ian Greener, University of Strathclyde, UK and University of Adelaide, Australia ‘This text is essential reading for the study of comparative social policy. It explores and accounts for the five “New Giants” for 24 developed nations using the relatively novel approach of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). It is the right book at the right time by the right person.’ – Martin Powell, University of Birmingham, UK On the 80th anniversary of Beveridge’s report on the ‘Five Giants’ confronting societal progress in the 1940s, this innovative book examines the ‘New Giants’ confronting us today: inequality, preventable mortality, the crisis of democracy, job quality, and environmental degradation. Ian Greener uses Qualitative Comparative Analysis and cluster analysis across 24 countries to analyse which countries are the highest performing in relation to each of the New Giants, and what they have in common.
