Globalization and Social Policy Mapping the Territory Global Economic Structures and Processes Globalization and the State From Defeat to Political Struggle International Governmental Organizations and Social Policy The Globalization of Social Conflict and Political Struggle

'This book exhibits the characteristics of all good social policy texts. It is fired by a commitment to welfare. It is informed by extensive multidisciplinary scholarship. It debunks fashionable myths. Nicola Yeates argues convincingly that while globalization in its many manifestations and dimensions (economic, cultural and political) has to be built into the analytical framework used by social policy scholars, globalizing pressures are not immutable nor guaranteed success in overriding local and national social and political forces… . Essential reading on all social policy courses'.

Bob Deacon, Professor of Social Policy, University of Sheffield/STAKES, Finland

"Many social scientists have not yet woken up to the fact that globalization

has transformed the nature of social policy. The severity and the causes of

many problems are harder to pin down; research and teaching programmes have to be re-cast. This book offers a penetrating assessment of the changes that have to be made'.

Peter Townsend, Professor of International Social Policy, LSE

Nicola Yeates is Lecturer in Social Policy at Queen's University, Belfast.
