"This edition is almost entirely written to take account of the new thinking about the welfare state. Dr Jones examines the current trends and explains the patterns. He has used the main program areas of the welfare state as a framework: income security, employment, health and personal care services. New primary and secondary material is included and places the Australian experience in an international perspective. Ideas from demography, economics, sociology, political science and public administration are used to illustrate social policy development."
