Book Description

Imagining Welfare Futures explores possible futures of welfare by considering different types of relationship between the public and the state through which social welfare may be organized beyond the millennium. By drawing on contemporary debates about the 'citizen', 'the community' and 'the consumer', the book explores what each of these imaginary figures might mean for the next generation of welfare users.


'The contributors have achieved the difficult task of rounding off, summarily and appropriately, a most interesting and informative series. If all the books in the series are just as detailed and neutral they may indeed become the core texts for social policy courses at UK universities.' - Nursing Ethics 1999 Vol 6:4
