Review

"What is particularly interesting about this book is the way in which its diverse contributions are all evidence for new perspectives emerging from within current social and economic policy: the new evolving out of the old rather than coming from elsewhere to replace it, and at the same time being genuinely new." Citizen's Income "Gathering excellent contributors, this edited volume is a must read for students of social policy interested in inclusive growth and social investment." Daniel Beland, Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy ? "A stimulating read encompassing timely and important topics such as inclusive growth and social investment - and with a global perspective." Bent Greve, Roskilde University, Denmark
