Product description


Enlightening. (Zoe Williams, The Guardian)

This tightly argued indictment of British policies and the selfproclaimed liberal states illiberal Us vs. Them juxtaposition in law, data collection and discourse should be required reading for political scientists. (Dirk Hoerder, Sozial.Geschichte Online)

The book leaves anyone interested in justifications of eligibility in social policies motivated to maintain a critical debate about the very foundations of often taken-for-granted assumptions about deservingness, as well as the global and national distribution effects of particular exclusionary policy choices with regard to individual groups' rights, life chances and livelihoods. It certainly teaches us not to hide behind legal catagories and statuses or formal decision-making procedures in our analyses of policies and politics. (Regine Paul, Journal of Social Policy)
