Edited by Martin PowellAlthough state provision may have dominated in Britain since 1945, there is a growing movement towards a mixed economy of welfare involving private, voluntary and informal sectors. This book, written by social policy and welfare experts, sheds light on this neglected area of social policy. The authors explore the social divisions of welfare. They analyse the issues of the production, finance and regulation of welfare and how they are located in the context of New Labour’s social policy.
