In the wake of the global financial crash, there is possibly no more pressing question for social policy than what forms of welfare are affordable and how. Clear and accessible, Howard Glennerster's Understanding the Cost of Welfare is unique in offering an authoritative, levelheaded, and nontechnical survey of how economic priorities and pressures affect social policies and what the mechanics of funding services mean in real terms. An updated edition of Glennerster's Understanding the Finance of Welfare, featuring a strengthened comparative dimension in its investigation of these vital services, this book provides more relevant institutional detail than any other text on this topic. Understanding the Cost of Welfare is an important, substantial contribution at a time when neoliberal arguments for reducing the burden of welfare are more dominant than ever before.
