About this book

The rollback of the welfare state in advanced industrial democracies is often justified as the inevitable consequence of economic globalization. This reader provides a collection of inter-disciplinary essays by sixteen leading scholars in the field that rebuke the 'inevitability thesis' on welfare state restructuration.
