Welfare state retrenchment has been puzzling political scientists--and for that matter, the general public--for years. Why should politicians who wish to be re-elected endeavor to scale back highly popular welfare entitlements? What are the political incentives and opportunities that make such a course of action likely? This book offers an international comparative analysis of welfare state retrenchment, and uniquely includes an indepth examination of its most radical deployment.
