about this item

There’s no question that globalization and the rise of neoliberal thinking have had a major effect on social policy, from the theoretical to the practical level. But what’s less clear is what that effect has been, which this book sets out to address. Fusing the applied, empirical concerns of traditional social policy with the broader theoretical perspectives found in political economy and macrosociology, it analyzes the effects of globalization and builds an integrated agenda for future research and practice in the field.
