As the system of governance and delivery of social welfare in the UK radically changes, this important new book argues that the extent of this change is such that it could be considered a fundamental transformation or even a revolution. It shows how a new public governance perspective has replaced the dominance of new public management, reflecting the increasingly plural and fragmented nature of public policy implementation. Drawing on examples across a range of policy areas it assesses how changes in social policy and governance interact in the delivery of the main areas of social policy and social welfare. The book will be essential reading for researches, students and policy makers.

Review:

"This important book successfully tackles the difficult task of explaining and comparing how social welfare is delivered in the now increasingly diverse United Kingdom."--Michael Hill, University of Newcastle

"An indispensable resource for those who want to understand how complex the delivery of welfare services has become in the United Kingdom and its constituent nations in recent years."--Nick Ellison, York University

"This excellent book offers important insights into the shifting dynamics of who does what for whom in an increasingly complex welfare governance landscape."--Sharon Wright, University of Glasgow

"This is an excellent book. Informed, engaging, and comprehensive. Essential reading for those interested in keeping up to date with the changing environment of social policy and governance."--Catherine Bochel, University of Lincoln

"This book can certainly be viewed as the new authority in the area social welfare governance in the UK and, as such, is deservingly destined to become a fixture on reading lists across the UK and beyond."--Social Policy and Administration
