Reviews

"This collection not only manages to summarize a wide variety of different debates but challenges us to engage with them even further. Both students and teachers will find it a useful guide to one of the most important subjects in the social sciences today."
--Tony Fitzpatrick, University of Nottingham

"By addressing the topic of global social policy through the lens of global social problems, Vic George and Robert Page have added a useful volume to the international social policy literature. The authors have made a welcomed departure from the standard literature in the field by moving beyond the frameworks of mythological nationalism and comparative studies towards a much needed transnational social policy analysis."
--Bob Decon, University of Sheffield
