Needs and Welfare by Alan J. Ware


Needs and Welfare by Alan J. Ware

This book addresses the concept of need and how needs can be, and are, met in western societies. Different models of welfare provision are examined both in theoretical terms and through two case studies: of models of pension provision and of the connection between the satisfaction of needs and electoral success for governments. This timely study makes an important contribution to the understanding of welfare and politics in advanced industrial western states.


`interesting and thought provoking...touches on a developing field which is still not well represented in the literature' - Journal of Social Policy
