    The Political Economy of the Voluntary Sector

    Brian E. Dollery, Joe L. Wallis
    In this book, the authors outline how policymakers in advanced countries have moved away from exclusive reliance on the public sector in social service delivery, towards a more multi-faceted approach that seeks to combine the strengths of public agencies, private firms and voluntary organizations. This development raises interesting and complex questions concerning the comparative advantages of these respective groups in the delivery of goods and services. Learn More

    Social Exclusion in European Welfare States

    Edited by Ruud Muffels, Panos Tsakloglou, David G. Mayes
    Social Exclusion in European Welfare States focuses on the complex relationship between economic welfare, labour market performance and social inclusion/exclusion. The contributors in the volume examine in detail the alleged trade-off between the social and economic capabilities of a society and their impact on the well-being of the citizens. Furthermore, they identify welfare regimes whose policies are more balanced in terms of prioritizing economic as well as social goals and, hence, are more successful in promoting social inclusion along with faster growth.

    Edited by David G. Mayes, Jos Berghman, Robert Salais

  13. The Global Market for Higher Education

    The Global Market for Higher Education

    Tim Mazzarol, Geoffrey N. Soutar
    The authors of The Global Market for Higher Education discuss this industry from a strategic and services marketing perspective and suggest a model to explain how to obtain and maintain a competitive advantage. The book draws on more than ten years of research with students and educational institutions in a number of countries, using both secondary and primary data to develop the model. The results presented suggest that an institution’s internal resources are key determinants of its appropriate strategy. The authors also suggest that decision makers and education marketers take account of the appropriate market literature when developing international plans and considering new international markets.

  15. European Working Lives

    European Working Lives

    Edited by Steve Jeffreys, Frederik M. Beyer, Christer Thörnqvist
    The contributors examine global trends such as the decentralisation of industrial relations and the revival of neo-liberalism, and discuss them from a theoretical and empirical perspective. They go on to argue that these global trends can really only exist in nationally specific contexts and focus on the changing roles of trade union and labour movements in representing workers’ interests. They trace the emergence of new European institutional and political dimensions of working, and attempt to answer the question of how converged, diverged or revised European working practices have become.

  16. Income Maintenance Policy

    Income Maintenance Policy

    Edited by Michael Hill
    This authoritative collection, which includes a new introduction surveying the fields, contains key contributions from the comparative literature on the politics of income maintenance policy. In recent years theoretical work has been dominated by Gøsta Esping-Andersen’s regime theory. This volume demonstrates how that theory, together with arguments on convergence and path-dependency, has been applied to the comparative study of income maintenance policy. It highlights issues about the difference between social insurance and social assistance and about the important differences in the way women and families are treated. The collection looks at the literature that seeks to explain cutbacks, or their absence, highlighting issues about pensions policy. Learn More

  17. Social Environmental Research in the European Union

    Social Environmental Research in the European Union

    Michael R. Redclift, Elizabeth Shove, Barend van der Meulen, Sujatha Raman
    This book explores the making of international social science, and the parts which academics, policymakers and research managers play in creating European social environmental research. The authors present and analyse a complex picture of overlapping institutional interests within six countries of the EU – The Netherlands, UK, Spain, Greece, Finland and Austria – and develop new models with which to capture the transnational interaction of researchers and funding agencies. The contributors consider the practical and intellectual challenges facing European research managers charged with the task of building a community of social researchers willing to engage with a policy-relevant environmental agenda. The book analyses the shape and character of European social science and the values and commitments of research activity on the environment. Learn More

  18. The Foundations of the Welfare State

    The Foundations of the Welfare State

    Edited by Robert E. Goodin, Deborah Mitchell
    This three-volume compendium reproduces all the key texts on the welfare state – its rise and fall, its varying rationales and instrumentalities, its different forms in different periods and different places. Political history and social theory are interspersed with sociology and economics, and neo-liberal analyses sit alongside socialist and feminist ones, making for an invigorating blend of opposing perspectives. Anglo-American experiences are contrasted not just with those of Germany and Scandinavia but also with Japan and Taiwan, Italy and Hungary, Australia and South Asia, thus highlighting the many distinct styles of welfare states and the distinctive social, economic, political and cultural forces driving them. The juxtaposition of all the standard texts alongside many others which are deeply revealing but virtually unknown makes this an indispensable reference source for all serious students of the welfare state.
