Reviews

'This excellent book helps untangle the assets agenda. Prabhakar's thorough analysis ranges from political theory to policy design ... this book is necessary reading for those already familiar with the assets agenda as well as anyone interested in learning more.' - Professor Anne Alstott, Jacquin D. Bierman Professor of Taxation, Yale Law School

'Prabhakar contributes to our understanding of 'the assets agenda' by identifying two main streams of discussion - one on social and economic development, and the other on citizenship. This simple distinction helps to clarify the robust discussion on assets that is underway.' - Michael Sherraden, Youngdahl Professor of Social Development, Washington University in St. Louis, USA

'This book shines much-needed light on the hot political topic of asset-based welfare. Its authoritative treatment of material on theoretical debates, policy reforms and public attitudes provides a clear, comprehensive and well-argued account of the relationship between assets and the state. Essential reading for all those with an interest in this field.' - Karen Rowlingson, Professor of Social Policy, University of Birmingham
