Society, Work and Welfare in Europe

ISBN: 0312218893;
Издательство: Palgrave MacMillan

This book examines pressures for convergence and divergence in contemporary European societies, focusing on the rapidly changing relationship between work and welfare. The book provides an in-depth comparative analysis of four countries--Germany, Spain, Sweden and the UK--each representative of different labor market and welfare regimes. An important feature of the book is the integration of material from sociological perspectives on employment and work with comparative analyses of welfare regimes, feminist critiques and recent debates on social exclusion.
