This book explains the changes that have occurred in welfare states internationally since the early 1970s and considers the policy dilemmas that have arisen. Each sector is examined from a theoretical and conceptual perspective with prominence given to the influence of ideology and values. The relationship between sectors is analysed, allowing each sector's place in the production and delivery of welfare to be assessed.
