New Managerialism, New Welfare? is a carefully integrated textbook that explores the continuing restructuring of the state and social welfare in the United Kingdom. It combines studies of specific policy areas - such as health, education, criminal justice, local government - with chapters that examine cross-cutting themes and developments. The book provides a thorough and critical reflection on New Labor's vision of the past and future of social welfare and public services in the construction of a `modern society'.

This book applies key Foucauldian ideas to the way in which the public sector has been reconfigured. Very interesting and contemporary piece of work.
