Siddiqui, Shariq A. / Wasif, Rafeel / Hughes, Micah A., Understanding Muslim Philanthropy. 160 pp. 2024:8 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-189>
ISBN 978-1-03-533728-6 hard ¥22,264.- (税込) GB£ 80.00

This important book locates and defines contemporary Muslim philanthropy and philanthropic institutions within the rich and diverse history of Islamic practice. Shariq A. Siddiqui, Rafeel Wasif and Micah A. Hughes examine religious discourses on the topic and question the universality of our current definitions.Developing a more expansive understanding of Muslim philanthropy, this book provides a historical overview of Muslim philanthropic practice to examine why they carry out these activities - whether it be for the public good, personal gain, a just society, or the love of God. They consider what these actions tell us about Muslims' understanding of their relationship with God and their fellow human beings, and whether there is a connection between these two relationships. Through a global range of case studies, chapters provide empirical data on Muslim giving in contemporary society, looking at the practices of zakat and sadaqa, contemporary waqfs, and how Muslim philanthropy is discussed through social media. Ultimately, the book encourages readers to think more critically about the relationship between religion and philanthropy.Comparative and interdisciplinary in scope, this book is vital for students and scholars of philanthropy, religion, social entrepreneurship, and the sociology of Islam. It is also a valuable resource for policymakers and philanthropists looking to better understand Islamic giving practices and their relationship to philanthropy.

B.グリーヴ著 医療制度と福祉を理解する
Greve, Bent, Understanding Health Systems and Welfare. (Understanding) 160 pp. 2024:7 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-260>
ISBN 978-1-03-532710-2 hard ¥22,264.- (税込) GB£ 80.00

Understanding Health Systems and Welfare explores the ways in which we understand health care systems and recommends how individuals, health care providers and society as a whole can best use the resources within the systems for maximum benefit. In this enlightening book, Bent Greve examines health care systems from a multitude of perspectives, considering factors such as demographic changes, the steering of health care systems, the value of preventative measures and the challenges and opportunities presented by technological developments. Greve discusses ways in which societies can ensure equitable access to treatment for all generations, income-bands and levels of education. The book recognises that each welfare state manages a different framework, financial model and structural organisation, and encourages individuals and health care providers to better understand the resources available in order to maximise the system's potential and ensure an overall improvement in wellbeing. This book is an informative read for students, academics and researchers working in welfare sociology, health sociology, social policy, health policy and sustainable development. Accessible and engaging, it will also be of interest to professionals and policymakers working in the health care and welfare sectors.

ISBN 978-1-03-532147-6 hard ¥45,919.- (税込) GB£ 165.00

In this Handbook, Reinhard Stockmann and other esteemed experts in the field provide a systematic and comprehensive exploration into the planning, process, implementation and utilisation of evaluations.Covering the process and individual steps of evaluation in detail, in chronological order and in terms of practical application, this Handbook identifies the characteristics and standards that distinguish a professionally and competently conducted evaluation. The first chapters define the differing concepts of monitoring and quality management before exploring the organisational implementation of evaluations and how evaluations are embedded within their social and political contexts. The Handbook then lays out which evaluation designs, quantitative and qualitative data collection, management, measurement and analysis methods can be used, and under which conditions. It concludes with a summary of the forms of reporting to ensure that evaluation results are used optimally.A thorough overview of the dynamic and evolving field of evaluation, this Handbook is beneficial to students and scholars looking to innovate their research methods and evaluation techniques across public and social policy. It will also be valuable to those who conduct evaluations themselves, as well as decision-makers who commission evaluations, clients and users of evaluations and those who are evaluated.

Lopez Pelaez, Antonio / Keet, Annaline et al. (eds.), Social Welfare Programs and Social Work Education at a Crossroads: New Approaches for a Post-Pandemic Society. (Routledge Advances in Social Work) 248 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <721-188>
ISBN 978-1-03-262303-0 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book explores a key phenomenon that has been accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis, namely, the crossroads at which social welfare professionals find themselves. This is a crossroads where, on the one hand, there is an accelerated digitalization process and a reorganization of social programs, while on the other hand, we are confronted by the basic challenge of designing social policies and their methods of evaluation, that is, the generation of robust data that will allow better evaluation of social projects and programs.Rigorously analysing the crossroads at which social welfare programs find themselves and the new demands for the education of professionals involved in social welfare programs, several key issues can be discerned; * the theoretical debate surrounding the changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and the process of redefining globalization in which we are immersed. * the challenges to be met by welfare programs, and the good practices that are being implemented. * the key issue of how to generate more robust data in the field of social services and social protection. * how to increase the competencies of professionals through education in schools of social work.Providing fifteen newly written chapters drawn from both the global north and the global south, it offers a set of recommendations to address the challenges of inequality and social inclusion in the coming years. It will be of interest to all academics, students and practitioners working in the fields of social work, social welfare and social development.

欧州とロシアの福祉のナショナリズム-21世紀の排除と包摂の移民の政治
Cook, Linda J., Welfare Nationalism in Europe and Russia: The Politics of 21st Century Exclusionary and Inclusionary Migrations. 280 pp. 2024:7 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <720-210>
ISBN 978-1-108-83566-4 hard ¥22,264.- (税込) GB£ 80.00

What is the relationship between the expansion of international labour migration, informal and precarious employment, and growing nationalism? Welfare Nationalism compares 21st century MENA migrations to Europe and Russia, the Ukrainian refugee migration to Europe in 2022, and labor migrations from Central Asia to Russia and from Central and Eastern Europe to Britain. Linda Cook contends that exclusionary and inclusionary migration cycles exist in both regions, driven by the 'deservingness' of migrants and mobilized by anti-immigrant politicians. Arguing that the long-term deterioration of labor markets and welfare provision for nationals in Europe and Russia drives welfare nationalism, she shows how populist parties in Europe and sub-national elites in Russia thrive on scapegoating migrants. Featuring a unique comparative analysis, this book examines the increasing harshness of contemporary migration policies and explores how we have arrived at the daily stand-offs of desperate international migrants against Europe's powers of surveillance and enforcement.

Gerovska Mitev, Maja (ed.), Social Work and Social Policy Transformations in Central and Southeast Europe. 202 pp. 2024:3 (Springer, GW) <720-211>
ISBN 978-3-031-51231-5 hard ¥28,112.- (税込) EUR 119.99

This book provides a picture of recent developments in social policy and social work in Central and Southeast Europe, especially trends after the COVID-19 pandemic, which necessitated significant welfare modifications. Through a comparative method, the book draws analytical conclusions about the interdependence between welfare state reforms and social work practices in Central and Southeast Europe and provides an overview of future perspectives regarding social policy and social service provision in this region. The book covers four EU member states (Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Croatia) and three EU candidate countries (North Macedonia, Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina). By critically contextualising existing welfare state categorisations, the book aims to examine the link between the welfare state reforms and implications for social work in Central and Southeast Europe. The country-based chapters of this contributed volume: outline the context in which social policy and social work have developed and map the main changes in the welfare state since the transition from socialism; elaborate the country-specific welfare state discourse and discussions, which through literature review depict the conceptual debates about the welfare state, social justice, equality, poverty, entitlements for cash transfer and services, privatization, and accessibility; indicate the key challenges in social policy and social work; and provide indications about the future perspectives of social policy and social service provision. Social Work and Social Policy Transformations in Central and Southeast Europe addresses the scarcity of literature on social policy and social work in this region. The book is primarily intended for social policy researchers and scholars, and students in social work, social policy, political science, and sociology. It is an invaluable resource for researchers from all fields of social sciences and should provoke wider academic and professional interest."The common themes of transformation, restructuring and crises, synthesized in excellent Introductory and Concluding chapters, make the book an essential source for an understanding of contemporary policies and practices, the complex role played by historical legacies, and offer a model of what a comparative policy approach should look like".-Paul Stubbs, Senior Research Fellow, The Institute of Economics, Zagreb, Croatia

Renzo Rosales, Martin / Johnson, LaShaune P. et al. (eds.), Research as Accompaniment: Solidarity and Community Partnerships for Transformative Action. 256 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <719-275>
ISBN 978-1-03-241491-1 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-03-241494-2 paper ¥10,293.- (税込) GB£ 36.99

This volume expands conversations about participatory, community-engaged, and action-oriented research that inspires social change.The authors contend that long-term community partnerships, inspired by solidarity and characterized by equality and reciprocity, result in a deep understanding of community concerns and increase the likelihood that research findings will have an impact on both the community partners and the broader society. Such research relationships, the authors maintain, are best understood as accompaniment. This book recognizes the potential as well as constraints of conceptualizing research as accompaniment and emphasizes that this approach is both a continuum and a process.Suitable for students and scholars of ethnographic and qualitative methods (and professionals using those methods, such as those in NGOs). It will appeal to those interested in research with communities in a wide variety of social science and other disciplines including Anthropology, Nursing, and Public Health amongst others.

世代間の不平等研究ハンドブック
Kilpi-Jakonen, Elina / Blanden, Jo et al. (eds.), Research Handbook on Intergenerational Inequality. (Elgar Handbooks on Inequality) 400 pp. 2024:5 (E. Elgar, UK) <718-178>
ISBN 978-1-80088-825-8 hard ¥59,834.- (税込) GB£ 215.00

The Research Handbook on Intergenerational Inequality is motivated by a core question in social science: to what extent does one's family background and childhood experience predict success in life? This innovative Research Handbook provides a comprehensive, multidisciplinary account of research on intergenerational inequality, focusing on its origins in sociology and economics.Expert contributors explore patterns of intergenerational persistence, how mobility varies for different groups, and the processes through which intergenerational inequality is produced. Chapters cover a range of novel topics including the intergenerational reproduction of elites, parental joblessness and its intergenerational impact, and the role of migration for intergenerational mobility. Bringing together experts from across the globe and from a variety of social science disciplines, the Research Handbook campaigns for greater cross-fertilisation between disciplinary boundaries and encourages future researchers to develop a deeper understanding of current mobility in order to better inform and improve social policy.This incisive Research Handbook will serve as a crucial reference point for researchers, scholars and students of social sciences, sociology, social policy, and economics. Its practical applications will also be highly beneficial for policymakers and practitioners working in social affairs.

Mezzadra, Sandro / Cuppini, Niccolo et al. (eds.), Capitalism in the Platform Age: Emerging Assemblages of Labour and Welfare in Urban Spaces. (Springer Studies in Alternative Economics) 371 pp. 2024:3 (Springer, GW) <718-181>
ISBN 978-3-031-49146-7 hard ¥11,711.- (税込) EUR 49.99
ISBN 978-3-031-49149-8 paper ¥9,368.- (税込) EUR 39.99

This open access book provides an overview of urban digital platforms such as Airbnb and Deliveroo, which, along with Amazon, Google, Facebook, and other IT companies, constitute by now the infrastructures for other businesses to operate on and for our social life to go on. These platforms serve as standards-based techno-economic systems that simultaneously capture cooperation through remote coordination and organize labor via algorithm management.Based on a three-years research project, this contributed book outlines a general theory of platform capitalism that conceives these platforms not only as technical devices, but as generative engines that operate at the interface of several aspects, such as digitalization of forms of social cooperation; algorithm-based management of labor and participation; and private and vertical appropriation of profits. These elements are somehow iconic of the capitalist evolution of the last decades, and they open up a reflection on new forms of "primitive accumulation" (in particular regarding data), on the mechanisms used to capture and extract social surplus value, and on the logistic-financial dimensions of capital. Finally, in light of the transformations associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the authors examine how platforms can evolve into hegemonic organizational structures.Assuming we are all already living in the age of the platform, this book takes a multifaceted approach-combining sociology with urban studies, and political sciences with economics-to grasp the challenges our societies face in terms of ensuring fair economic growth, adequate social protections, and labor rights. It will appeal to anyone interested in digital platforms and how they are changing the organization of labor, urban spaces, and forms of governance.

ISBN 978-1-03-533121-5 hard ¥37,570.- (税込) GB£ 135.00

This thoroughly original book provides a comprehensive overview of the development of welfare arrangements and their wider context in Western Europe. Using the concept of social modernity, Ingo Bode investigates current challenges to these arrangements and examines prospects for progressive welfare reform.Adopting a sociological perspective, The Fate of Social Modernity dissects the complex layers of welfare agreements and assesses their potential for promoting socially balanced societies. Ingo Bode outlines how both public programmes and involved welfare organisations addressing children, disadvantaged workers, or elderly people may prompt yet also hamper processes of social development. He also explains how insights into social dynamics in European countries, such as Germany, Italy, Norway, and the UK, may contribute to a better understanding of problems and opportunities elsewhere in the world.This foundational book is a crucial read for scholars in the fields of comparative social policy, sociological theory, and organization studies. It will also be of benefit to practitioners in public administration and non-profit sector studies seeking to better understand the chemistry of social development.

Appleton, Peter, What Matters and Who Matters to Young People Leaving Care: A New Approach to Planning. 192 pp. 2024:3 (Policy Pr., UK) <714-197>
ISBN 978-1-4473-6833-5 paper ¥4,727.- (税込) GB£ 16.99 *

The EPDF and EPUB are available open access under a CC-BY-NC-ND licence. This publication was supported by the University of Essex's open access fund. How do young people transitioning from care plan their future lives? Planning is usually thought of as requiring clear goals and 'future orientation', but how might planning be regarded by young people whose wishes, hopes, and plans have been repeatedly dashed? In this book Peter Appleton builds on research interviews with care-experienced young adults, and on cross-disciplinary theories of planning and of emotions, to develop a creative and non-dogmatic three-aspects model of planning for young people leaving care. A valuable resource for practitioners, researchers, and educators, this book puts forward a powerful case to think more broadly and flexibly about transition planning with care-leavers, placing the voices of young people at its heart.

Pring, John, The Department: How a Violent Government Bureaucracy Killed Hundreds and Hid the Evidence. 272 pp. 2024:8 (Pluto Pr., UK) <714-201>
ISBN 978-0-7453-4989-3 paper ¥4,727.- (税込) GB£ 16.99

In the early 2010s, reports began to emerge of deaths that were being linked to a government department. Suicide notes, coroners' reports, and investigations by public bodies pointed to failings within the Department for Work and Pensions-the DWP-the government body responsible for the disability benefits system. As years passed, and austerity tightened its grip, the death toll mounted, and an even more disturbing picture developed: how bureaucracy, politicians, and the private sector had combined over thirty years to reckless, deadly effect. For the last decade, disabled journalist John Pring has meticulously pieced together how the DWP ignored pleas to correct fatal flaws in the social security system and covered up its role in the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands, of disabled people. Spending years researching the heartbreaking stories of ten individuals who died, we hear of how their bereaved families have fought for justice and accountability. Through exclusive new research, including historical documents from the National Archives that can be revealed publicly for the first time, The Department describes how slow, bureaucratic violence has led over three decades to the deaths of countless disabled people who relied on the state's support.

欧州農村部におけるNEETs
Simoes, Francisco / Erdogan, Emre (eds.), NEETs in European Rural Areas: Individual Features, Support Systems and Policy Measures. (SpringerBriefs in Sociology) 117 pp. 2024:2 (Springer, GW) <714-202>
ISBN 978-3-031-45678-7 paper ¥7,025.- (税込) EUR 29.99

This open access book constitutes a transnational and multidisciplinary inquiry of the most pressing challenges faced by young people Not in Employment, nor in Education or Training (NEET) in rural areas across Europe. . Rural NEETs are one of the most invisible segments of the youth population, in spite of the fact that the percentage of NEETs is higher in the countryside, compared to those in suburban and urban areas across the EU and many of the Southern and Eastern European countries. This book identifies and analyses different factors that may contribute to or hamper youth social development and social inclusion. Among them are main individual features of rural NEETs, the quality and characteristics of rural NEETs' informal social networks and support, the singularities of formal and non-formal education in rural areas and how they shape the transition from school to work, the role of employment services in providing adequate institutional support, the importance of policy package designor the role of new paradigms of rural development to uphold vulnerable young people in the European countryside . The contributions offered in this book provide a new model of analysis and comprehension of rural NEETs' personal development and social inclusion. This book therefore establishes the state of the art regarding available knowledge on rural NEETs, and represents an inspirational resource for new research agendas on the subject of vulnerable rural youth in Europe. This book also forms the policy design in areas such as education, employment, and social welfare in rural areas.

Health inequalities are widening, and crises of obesity, physical inactivity and mental health are worsening around the world. Yet there remains a reluctance to discuss the threat capitalism poses to health and wellbeing. Offering a unique contribution to the field, Capitalism, Health and Wellbeing: Rethinking Economic Growth for a Healthier, Sustainable Future addresses the elephant in the room: economic growth. Challenging this crucial yet overlooked issue, author Rob Noonan contends that the drive for economic growth is at odds with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals to achieve a better and more sustainable future. He argues that if the 'health for all' goal is to be achieved, it is imperative to redesign the economic system and social progress metrics that promote productivity and consumption at the expense of health and wellbeing. While clearly outlining the challenges governments face, Noonan offers solutions on how we can reverse the accelerating trends of obesity, physical inactivity and poor mental health, as well as how we can use scientific understanding and history to improve public health and reduce health inequalities. Rooted in thoughtful evidence and achievable actions, this work empowers readers to contribute to positive transformation and create a healthier, more just and more sustainable world.

Hamington, Maurice, Revolutionary Care: Commitment and Ethos. 216 pp. 2024:3 (Routledge, UK) <713-163>
ISBN 978-1-03-243729-3 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00 *
ISBN 978-1-03-243731-6 paper ¥10,015.- (税込) GB£ 35.99 *

Written by one of the world's most respected care scholars, Revolutionary Care provides original theoretical insights and novel applications to offer a comprehensive approach to care as personal, political, and revolutionary. The text has nine chapters divided into two major sections. Section 1, "Thinking About Better Care," offers four theoretical chapters that reinforce the primacy of care as a moral ideal worthy of widespread commitment across ideological and cultural differences. Unlike other moral approaches, care is framed as a process morality and provides a general trajectory that can only determine the best course of action in the moment/context of need. Section 2, "Invitations and Provocations: Imagining Transformative Possibilities," employs four case studies on toxic masculinity, socialism and care economy, humanism and posthumanism, pacifism, and veganism to demonstrate the radical and revolutionary nature of care. Exploring the thinking and writing of many disciplines, including authors of color, queer scholars, and indigenous thinkers, this book is an exciting and cutting-edge contribution to care ethics scholarship as well as a useful teaching resource.

Bhatnagar, Tithi, Subjective Well-Being in the Indian Context: Concept, Measure and Index. 240 pp. 2023:11 (Springer, GW) <712-243>
ISBN 978-981-9965-25-0 hard ¥10,540.- (税込) EUR 44.99

This book offers an understanding of subjective well-being (SWB) in the Indian context across ages and strata. It discusses the conceptualization and measurement of both subjective well-being (SWB) and subjective ill-being (SIB) through a multi-phased research study.

Ellingsaeter, Anne Lise, Nordic Earner-Carer Politics: A Comparative and Historical Analysis. 208 pp. 2024:1 (E. Elgar, UK) <712-244>
ISBN 978-1-80220-707-1 hard ¥26,438.- (税込) GB£ 95.00 *

This insightful book provides a comprehensive comparative analysis of the formation and evolution of Nordic earner-carer policies over five decades. Spanning parental leave, father quotas, daycare services, and cash for childcare allowances, it explores the key roles that ideas and political parties play in the policy reform process.Examining earner-carer politics across Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, Anne Lise Ellingsaeter summarises and advances existing family policy literature by adopting a long historical perspective on policy reform. Highlighting how political processes shape policy trajectories, the book focuses on interpretative struggles in political discourses and reform processes, reflecting on the highly politicised and value-laden nature of family policy. It argues that bloc politics - the left against the centre-right - have been a central driving force, energised by differing ideas about relationships between state, family and individual, and between state and market. Ellingsaeter also explores gender equality and parental choice, two strong and at times competing ideas influencing family policy.Drawing on and furthering extensive theoretical and empirical research on family policy and welfare state change, Nordic Earner-Carer Politics will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars of social policy, sociology, political science, and gender studies.

創造的社会政策
Kananen, Johannes, Creative Social Policy: The Collective Emancipation of Human Potential. 208 pp. 2024:2 (E. Elgar, UK) <712-245>
ISBN 978-1-03-532139-1 hard ¥22,264.- (税込) GB£ 80.00 *

Innovative and forward-thinking in its approach, this book advocates for the liberation of people's creative potential through the systematic transformation of work and capital. Providing a detailed account and analysis of current social policy, Johannes Kananen envisions an emancipatory societal development that prioritises fulfilling human need as opposed to the accumulation of private capital.Creative Social Policy argues that recent strands of academic social policy have contributed to economics imperialism and that practical social policy has become subordinate to the functions of capitalist production. In order to address this, Kananen makes crucial strategic proposals as a means of creating sustainable economic opportunities for all, including Universal Seed Money and Universal Basic Income. Given the instabilities caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, European war, austerity, the rise of right-wing populism and the climate crisis, Kananen highlights the urgent need to challenge the existing foundations of current policy making, and advocates for both emancipatory societal development and a cycle of co-creation of social policy knowledge to build a more sustainable future.This novel approach will make essential reading for students, scholars and academics specialising in social policy, political economy, political theory and sociology. Offering a unique outlook on social policy as we understand it, this book will also be of value to professionals and policy makers working in social, economic and ecological sustainability.

Lenzi, Camilla / Fedeli, Valeria (eds.), Spatial Inequalities and Wellbeing: A Multidisciplinary Approach. (Multidisciplinary Movements in Research) 256 pp. 2024:2 (E. Elgar, UK) <712-247>
ISBN 978-1-80220-262-5 hard ¥27,830.- (税込) GB£ 100.00 *

Spatial Inequalities and Wellbeing represents a timely contribution to the literature tackling one of the most crucial concerns of modern times: the rise of inequalities and its far-reaching implications for individual wellbeing. Taking a multidisciplinary perspective, the book highlights the different types and sources of inequalities and identifies opportunities for policy action to tackle various inequalities at once.Featuring expert contributions from eminent scholars, this insightful book posits that policies themselves can produce deep inequalities at the spatial level while trying to reduce them and also explores how inequalities and marginalisation depress individual wellbeing and can become a threat to political and institutional stability. Chapters critically analyse the causes of spatial inequalities, ranging from education and housing to location in the largest cities. The book also highlights the negative consequences of these gaps widening, and emphasises how participatory and bottom-up interventions can contribute to narrowing such disparities at the micro-level.Academics, researchers and students in urban and regional studies; human geography; economics and finance; politics and public policy; and sociology and social policy will find this to be an informative read. Policymakers within these fields will equally find this to be a beneficial resource.

M.Torry著 社会政策における無条件性に向けて
Torry, Malcolm, Unconditional: Towards Unconditionality in Social Policy. 280 pp. 2024:1 (E. Elgar, UK) <712-251>
ISBN 978-1-03-531324-2 hard ¥27,830.- (税込) GB£ 100.00 *

Can anything ever be truly unconditional? Can public services such as healthcare or education be unconditional? And can an income ever be unconditional? This incisive book responds to these questions with a qualified 'yes,' and considers whether a social policy regime based on unconditionality might ever replace neoliberalism.Beginning with an exploration of the meaning of unconditionality and how the term relates to concepts such as universality and reciprocity, Malcolm Torry lays the foundations for an understanding of what an unconditionality paradigm in social policy might look like. He investigates how social policy characterised by unconditionality might fit within the spectrum of welfare state regimes and sets out the arguments for and against unconditionality in healthcare, education, income provision, and other social policy areas. Chapters delve into the history and ethics of unconditionality in social policy, with close reference to Hebrew and Christian scripture and philosophers' discussions on the possibility of unconditional giving.A key contribution to global debate on unconditionality in social policy, this invigorating book will prove an essential read for students and scholars interested in social and economic history, the economics of social policy, and Universal Basic Income. Its practical insights will also benefit journalists, think tank staff and policymakers.

Aspalter, Christian, Super Inequality: Theoretical Essays in Economics and Social Policy. 158 pp. 2023:9 (Springer, GW) <710-162>
ISBN 978-981-9951-68-0 hard ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99 *

This book bridges the disciplines of micro-economics and social policy in general, and, in particular, behavioral/explanatory social policy and public choice theory, plus Leibenstein's X-efficiency theory. Being trained as an economist and social policy scientist, the author leaps out of the comfort zone of most social policy scientists and experts, right into the exciting world of micro-economic theory, and then extending and connecting those theories to explain major social, political and economic conundrums of our time. In doing so, the book offers a new set of theoretical-and practical-explanations derived from the general proposition of micro-economic theory, of how government officers, policymakers, administrators and the people themselves alike are, by and large, motivated in their daily as well as strategic (long-term) decision-making. Using a meta-analytical approach (based on a number of grand theories), this book also explains systemic factors behind human behavior and the thereof resulting shortcomings in lifetime outcomes (health, wealth and happiness of a person) and at the same time societal, policy-making, and economic outcomes on societal level, and in global comparison.The outcomes thereof can be measured exactly (and hence validated), especially through the method of empirical comparative social science/economic research. Here, the author also (but not only) introduces the new method of using Aspalter's Standardized Relative Performance (SRP) Index in measuring exactly complex, aggregate performances of multiple governments, and that at the same time also across the entire world.

ISBN 978-3-031-41581-4 hard ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99 *

This book examines the history of the French welfare state from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. The French social security system has changed profoundly over the last few decades. The Bismarkian model of governance and social protection inherited from the Second World War has progressively faded away in favor of a reinforcement of the state's capacity to intervene on policies and the implementation of national health insurance coverage. In order to understand this major transformation, this book draws on rich original sources to offer a historical and sociological perspective on elite policymakers and policy change. In doing so, it identifies correlations between the changing social backgrounds and career paths of elites in charge of social insurance policies since the 1940s, and the development of health policy programs. It will appeal to all those interested in public policy, health policy, social studies and French history and politics.

ISBN 978-1-5381-6524-9 hard ¥22,638.- (税込) US$ 105.00 *

Through in-depth analysis of decision-making on access to social assistance, this book reveals the dynamics of discretionary power in welfare institutions and evidences the effect that this power has on a fundamental aspect of society - the operation of the welfare state. The work builds upon theories of street-level bureaucracy, particularly its explanations of the complexity of the public service and policy environment. The text explores the dilemmas street-level bureaucrats face in their daily work, their responses to organisational pressures and the ambiguity of policy.The author argues that understanding the legislative and organisational conditions underpinning discretionary decision-making is crucial to ensuring effective and democratic functioning of welfare institutions.

ISBN 978-3-031-26259-3 hard ¥11,711.- (税込) EUR 49.99

This open access book examines an interdependent approach to happiness and well-being, one that contrasts starkly with dominant approaches that have originated from Western culture(s). It highlights the diversity of potential pathways towards happiness and well-being globally, and answers calls - voiced in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals - for more socially and environmentally sustainable models.Leading global organizations including the OECD, UNICEF, and UNESCO are now proposing human happiness and well-being as a more sustainable alternative to a myopic focus on GDP growth. Yet, the definition of well-being offered by these organizations derives largely from the philosophies, social sciences, and institutional patterns of Europe and the United States. Across seven chapters this book carefully probes the inadequacy of these approaches to well-being globally and reveals the distorting effect this has on how we imagine our world, organize institutions, and plan our collective future(s). It shares a wealth of evidence and examples from across East Asia - a region where interdependence remains foregrounded - and concludes by provocatively arguing that interdependence may provide a more sustainable approach to happiness and well-being in the 21st century. A timely and accessible book, it offers fresh insights for scholars and policymakers working in the areas of psychology, health, sociology, education, international development, public policy, and philosophy.This is an open access book.

Focusing on the policy approaches of Conservative governments since 2015, this book examines key social policy areas including education, health, housing, employment, children and young people and more. Respected social policy researchers explore the degree to which the positions and policies of recent Conservative governments have differed from the previous Coalition government (2010-2015). They consider the extent to which austerity has continued and the influence of other policy emphases, such as a 'levelling up' agenda. Reflecting the rapid changes of Prime Minister, they compare the themes of the Cameron, May, Johnson, Truss and Sunak administrations, critically examine the impacts of the external shocks of Brexit and COVID-19, as well as changing patterns of public expenditure.

住宅と福祉ハンドブック
Grander, Martin / Stephens, Mark (eds.), The Routledge Handbook of Housing and Welfare. 328 pp. 2023:12 (Routledge, UK) <709-275>
ISBN 978-1-03-207433-7 hard ¥40,353.- (税込) GB£ 145.00 *

This handbook takes on one of the most pressing issues of today's society - the question of housing. It is a cutting-edge edited volume about the disputed interrelationship between housing and the wider welfare state. Although housing scholars generally agree that housing should be regarded as part of such a wider welfare system, it has proven hard to pinpoint and operationalize its position within it. Moreover, the relationship became considerably more complex as a result of the period of intense globalization and the integration of national housing finance systems into world finance markets. Furthermore, welfare systems reflect economic as well as social models and these, too, have changed as countries have responded to globalization, and traditional ideological frameworks have become less distinct.Thus, there is a need to redefine the connection between housing and welfare in light of changes in both welfare and housing systems. By investigating the current situation and historical development of housing provision and welfare distribution in different contexts worldwide, this book aims to contribute to an expanded understanding of housing and welfare.The book brings together 25 international housing researchers covering 15 countries worldwide. With such a global approach, the book aims to provide an updated empirical picture and analysis of different housing systems and their connection to the welfare regime in different national contexts. The book moves beyond the usual focus on affordable housing provision in the context of well-developed welfare regimes and includes countries from the global south, incorporating regions where it is debatable whether there are welfare systems present at all. Thus, the book aims to provide the reader with an insight into the large differences in housing provision in international contexts with large differences regarding how the welfare state is comprised. From these insights, we reflect on whether regime approaches continue to provide a suitable theoretical framework for understanding the relationship between housing and the wider welfare state.This handbook is essential reading for researchers, students, policymakers, and other professionals in the fields of housing studies, welfare studies, economics, urban studies, social work, social and public policy, and sociology.
