9780742524644: Savage State: Welfare Capitalism and Inequality

The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 is used as a point of departure for a critique of contemporary welfare policy and the capitalist state. Martin and Torres set out to renew a critical Marxist method by extending it to an analysis of contemporary social policy. It is in this approach that they set out to argue that a critique of welfare policy within the context of capitalism is more timely and important than ever before.

Review:

Recommended. (Choice)

One does not have to agree with Torres' and Martin's normative approach to learn a great deal from their critique of Marxist theory and the implications and significance it has for a democratic and just society. (Carnoy, Martin)
