Editorial Reviews


"An age of watersheds is the age for grand syntheses: New politics of the welfare state, three worlds of welfare capitalism, transformation of the welfare state, limits to globalization. Neil Gilbert's 'enabling state' contributes superbly to this OECD-wide discussion. Promoting work, subsidizing private activity as well as share-holder claims on private markets, and targeting benefits - this is Gilbert's common Western core of the new market-oriented social policies." --Stephan Leibfried, Professor of Social Policy, University of Bremen, Germany

About the Author

Neil Gilbert is Chernin Professor of Social Welfare and Social Service at the University of California, Berkeley. His publications include: The Enabling State: Modern Welfare Capitalism in America and, most recently, Welfare Justice: Restoring Social Equity.

This book was a required textbook for my class, so I had to get it. But it came quickly and was in great condition, which was what was important.
