The rollback of the welfare state in advanced industrial democracies is often justified as the inevitable consequence of economic globalization. This reader provides a collection of inter-disciplinary essays by sixteen leading scholars in the field that rebuke the 'inevitability thesis' on welfare state restructuration.

'With a genuinely insightful introduction, Ritu Vij has brought together a classic set of readings ... A judicious and radical collection which is likely to become a standard reference point for anyone interested in the state of welfare and the welfare state under conditions of contemporary globalization.' - Professor Anthony McGrew, Head of School, School of Social Sciences, Southampton University, UK

'The book is an important statement about what has happened to the welfare state throughout the last generation of politically-inspired globalization.' - Craig N. Murphy, M. Margaret Ball Professor of International Relations, Wellesley College, USA

'...this collection facilitates a productive engagement with critical perspectives on social protection and suggests avenues for the future development of critical scholarship on globalization and welfare.' - International Social Security Review
