This highly original and thought-provoking book examines the recent expansion of social protection in China, India, Brazil and South Africa - four countries experiencing rapid economic growth and social change.

The authors explore the developments in each country, analyze the impact of government cash transfers and discuss key future trends. The study reveals that social protection has complemented economic growth and supported development efforts and has been fundamental to promoting equitable and sustainable societies.

This proves invaluable for researchers who are interested in this field of study. The book is ideal for anyone interested in social issues as well as social scientist and is highly recommended for social policy majors.' -- Journal of Human Development and Capabilities
