Summary and Info
This book introduces a historical perspective on the emergence and development of social welfare. Starting from the familiar ground of the "the family," it traces some of the crucial historical roots of contemporary social problems and social policy in the 19th and 20th centuries around education, the family, unemployment and nationhood. By aiming to discover the link between the pat and the present, it shows that social problems are socially constructed in specific contexts and that there are diverse and competing ways of telling history.
