Product description

Review

`Global Social Policy is a stimulating, innovative and well-researched book. Moreover, given the current crisis in the global economy and its implications for world poverty, it is timely as well. By bringing the usually disparate themes of globalisation and social policy together, Bob Deacon and his collaborators have given us much more than the sum of the parts' - The Journal of Development Studies

`There is a lot of good material in this book. The detailed case studies offer real depth in reviewing the process of social policy `transition' in former Soviet-type regimes. The survey of policy-making within the major international agencies offers real insights. The attempt to get beyond comparative social policy conventions to generate an index of changing patterns of real global welfare is a welcome corrective to more traditional approaches. Indeed, much of the book is rewardingly counter-intiutive' - Social Policy

`It can be said that the study by Deacon, Hulse and Stubbs is the most interesting and comprehensive answer so far produced by the economic globalization debate. It is to be hoped that this book will influence not only academic discussion but also political developments' - International Social Security Review

`This is the first book which comprehensively seeks to establish a global perspective on social welfare, particularly in assessing the extent to which international organisations currently act as a counterpart to market forces, and could so to a much greater degree in future. Its scope is thus ambitious, and sets an impressive standard to follow. Quite simply, for anyone with an interest in contemporary social policy, this book is a `must'. The book pleasingly communicates its complex tale in a clear way, with the authors acting as friendly guides through the maze' - Community Development Journal

`It is a pioneering effort which brings together and synthesizes literature relvant to transnational social policy drawn from the field of social policy, international relations, development studies and the activities of the United Nations and other IGOs in the economic and social arena....The case studies offer a practical illustration of and insight into the processes of transnational policy-making. Essentially, then, this book is an introduction to an important and hitherto uncharted area of social policy and one that is likely to be of growing interest. And that is no mean contribution' - International Social Work
