Race, ethnicity and welfare states : an American dilemma?( Book )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gunnar Myrdal's 'An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy' persuaded many scholars that the United States failed to develop a robust welfare state because of its ethnic and racial heterogeneity, and, conversely, that homogeneity was a precondition for the creation of strong welfare states in European, especially Nordic, countries. With increasing diversity now challenging these welfare states, the kind of 'dilemma' that Myrdal identified no longer appears to be solely an American one. In this interdisciplinary volume, leading and emerging scholars examine the relationship between homogeneity and welfare state development. They trace Myrdal's influence on thinking about race in the US and explore current European states' approaches to the strangers in their midst, and what social citizenship looks like from a global perspective. Students and scholars of contemporary welfare states in the social sciences and policy studies will find this to be an insightful read, as the book challenges current perceptions. It will also be of interest to policy makers and practitioners looking to examine the historical context behind the politics of welfare states in the US and Scandinavia

The politics of age : basic pension systems in a comparative and historical perspective( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Financially and politically, old age pensions are one of the cornerstones of modern welfare states, with a long history behind them. Pension systems and pension reforms have not only commanded the special attention of welfare researchers. Over the past few years, politicians throughout most of Europe have discovered that pension reforms can be both a difficult and a hazardous venture. In this book a number of researchers analyse the historical political development of European pension systems as well as present-day political and economic challenges. The authors comprise economists, political scientists and historians. The multi-disciplinary approach of the book combined with its comparative and historical perspective make possible a finely graded presentation of public pension systems and the challenges facing them
In experts we trust : knowledge, politics, and bureaucracy in Nordic welfare states by Åsa Lundqvist( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the relationship between science and politics in the Nordic welfare states? What role have experts played in the development of the Nordic model and who were the experts? Based on in-depth analysis of the historical facts of the welfare states in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden in the 20th Century, this volume offers a multifaceted analysis of the interplay between science, experts, politicians and institutions in policy areas such as public health, unemployment insurance, child psychiatry, alcohol research and social insurance. The book brings together empirically grounded studies of the interplay between science and politics, the theoretical perspectives adopted in different political contexts, and the relationship between the internal dynamics of disciplines and research environments
American foundations and the European welfare states( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In public debate and academic writings the American and European welfare states are often portrayed as inhabiting completely different welfare regimes. However, if we take a closer look at the historical development of the European welfare state we find that American philanthropic bodies such as the Rockefeller Foundation had a significant influence on the development in key areas of the European welfare states such as health care, social work, education and the disciplines of social science. The contributions in this book explore the influence of American foundations from the interwar period to the 1950s in Denmark, Norway, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France, Spain and Sweden. The book offers new insights into the transnational history of European welfare states as well as the complicated process often labeled as Americanization"--Back cover
