Thinking about social policy the German tradition by Franz-Xaver Kaufmann ( )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book is part of the 5-volume series 'German Social Policy', a unique multidisciplinary approach to the history of German social policy written by the doyens of their respective disciplines. The volumes expound the contribution of the German tradition to the rise of social policy in the Western world in the 19th and 20th centuries. Germany pioneered modern social policy in the 19th century when Bismarck introduced social insurance. After the Second World War, Germany's Social Market Economy became a model of social integration. The volumes cover the history of ideas (volume 1), the legal and political history before and after 1945 (volumes 2 and 3), the German Democratic Republic (1949-1990) and the impact of German reunification (1990) (volume 4). Volume 5 embeds the German case in a major comparative study of European welfare states, complemented by a study of the USA and the Soviet Union. The volumes also yield insights into general theoretical issues of social policy beyond the empirical case of Germany. Each volume has an introduction by the editor who summarizes the contribution made by the volumes and looks into the future of German social policy. The book traces the political history of the concept of social policy. {ldquo}Social policy' originated in Germany in the mid 19th century as a scholarly term that made a career in politics. The term became more prominent only after World War II. Kaufmann, the doyen of the sociology of social policy in Germany, argues that {ldquo}social policy' responds to the modern disjunction between 'state' and 'society' diagnosed by the German philosopher Hegel. Hegel's disciple Lorenz von Stein saw social policy as a means to pacify the capitalist class conflict. After World War II, social policy expanded in an unprecedented way, changing its character in the process. Social policy turned from class politics into a policy for the whole population, with new concepts - like "social security", "redistribution" and "quality of life" - and new overarching formulas, "social market economy" and "social state" (the German version of 'welfare state'). Both formulas have remained indeterminate and contested, indicating the inherent openness of the idea of the 'social"

Each volume has an introduction by the editor who summarizes the contribution made by the volumes and looks into the future of German social policy. In the burgeoning literature on welfare regimes and typologies, this comparative study offers a stimulating new perspective. Kaufmann, the doyen of the sociology of social policy in Germany, emphasizes norms, culture and history, in contrast to political economy approaches. Comparing Britain, Sweden, France and Germany, Kaufmann highlights the {ldquo}idiosyncrasy' of each welfare state: countries are compared with regard to their state traditions and the relationship between state and civil society; their national 'social questions'; their economic systems, including the unions and labour law; social security and redistribution; and their personal social services and education. The socio-cultural approach enables Kaufmann to show that not all modern states are welfare states. Some are just {ldquo}capitalism' (the USA), others are {ldquo}socialism' (the former Soviet Union). In this light, the (essentially North-West European) welfare state is portrayed as a third way between capitalism and socialism

13 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Schrumpfende Gesellschaft : vom Bevölkerungsrückgang und seinen Folgen by Franz-Xaver Kaufmann ( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in German and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Das Altern der Bevölkerung gilt als zentrales gesellschaftliches Problem der Zukunft. In der Publikation zeigt der Autor, daß diese These falsch ist: Nicht das Altern der Bevölkerung ist das Problem, sondern deren Rückgang. Es werden zu wenig Kinder in Deutschland geboren, und dieser Mangel läßt sich auch nicht durch Zuwanderung beheben. Diesen lang tabuisierten Aspekt des demographischen Wandels rückt er Autor ins Zentrum seiner Untersuchung und zeigt die Zusammenhänge zwischen demographischer, wirtschaftlicher und sozialer Stagnation auf. Solange die deutsche Politik sich der Bevölkerungsentwicklung nur fatalistisch anpaßt, werden sich die wirtschaftlichen und sozialen Probleme langfristig verschärfen und die Zukunftsperspektiven in den kommenden Jahrzehnten weiter verdüstern

Herausforderungen des Sozialstaates by Franz-Xaver Kaufmann ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in German and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Der Sozialstaat ist in Bedrängnis geraten. In der Publizistik und der Politik wächst die Meinung, die Folgen der Globalisierung und die Probleme des Standortes Deutschland ließen sich nur durch einen Abbau sozialstaatlicher Vorkehrungen in den Griff bekommen. Gesetze und Gesetzesentwürfe zielen in diese Richtung. Im vorliegenden Buch analysiert Franz-Xaver Kaufmann umfassend und prägnant die aktuellen Herausforderungen, von der Bevölkerungsentwicklung bis zum Verlust wirtschaftspolitischer Autonomie. Gleichzeitig warnt er vor kurzschlüssigen Verengungen der Probleme auf das Wirtschaftliche und verdeutlicht den unverzichtbaren Eigenwert der Sozialstaatlichkeit, die allerdings nur durch nachhaltige Umstrukturierung ihre zukünftigen Aufgaben wird erfüllen können
