New Managerialism, New Welfare?

First Edition
Edited by:


September 2000 | 288 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
New Managerialism, New Welfare is a carefully integrated textbook that explores the continuing restructuring of the state and social welfare in the United Kingdom. It combines studies of specific policy areas - such as health, education, criminal justice, local government - with chapters that examine cross-cutting themes and developments. The book provides a thorough and critical reflection on New Labour's vision of the past and future of social welfare and public services in the construction of a `modern society'.

`The editors have assembled an original collection of papers from leading academics in social policy...in exploring the nature of New Labour's modernisation project and vision of welfare, it will be extremely relevant to a much wider audience, including students, welfare practitioners and managers' - British Journal of Social Work


Slightly too complex for the cohort reading list.

This book applies key Foucauldian ideas to the way in which the public sector has been reconfigured. Very interesting and contemporary piece of work.
