Suzan Zimmermann is Professor of History at the Central European University, BudapestReview:
Drawing on an extensive base of documents, Zimmermann reconstructs the special road of how fin-de-siecle Hungary headed for slowly becoming a welfare-state. It was in part an adaptation to the Western model transmitted by Austrian part of the dual Monarchy. The transformation also produced some distinctive innovations, examplified especially by the Budapest municipal social policy. The book will spark interest in the field of the European comparative history of social policy. --GABOR GYANI, Professor at Institute of History, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest

BRAND NEW, Divide, Provide and Rule: An Integrative History of Poverty Policy, Social Policy, and Social Reform in Hungary Under the Habsburg Monarchy, Suzan Zimmermann, Brings together the analysis of older, mostly local welfare policies (including their legal framings and their change over time) with the history of social policy developed by the state and operated at a national level. Explores also the interaction of various layers of and actors in welfare policy, i.e. of poor relief, social reform policies and the unfolding welfare state over time, including often neglected elements of these policies such as for instance protective policies at the work place, housing policy, child protection, and prostitution policies. Making innovative use of legal, quantitative, and other material, the author describes how policies of inclusion into and exclusion from access to social insurance coverage shaped social relations within and beyond the world of work. The study demonstrates how definitions of what constituted need have served historically to produce divergent visions and treatment of male and female poverty, and how these historical biases have continued to shape and biased the conceptual apparatus of research into the history of welfare and social policies.
