The new fourth edition of this successful textbook covers the different parts of the welfare system and includes detailed discussion of cash benefits, the health service, and education. The text argues that the welfare state exists not just to help the underprivileged, but also for reasons of efficiency, operating in areas where private markets would be inefficient or would not exist at all. The book is fully updated and enhanced throughout by the use of student learning aids.
