520 |a "'Eighty years ago, New Zealand's welfare state was envied by many social reformers around the world. Today it stands in need of urgent repair and renewal'. One of our leading public policy thinkers asks: What might the contours of a revitalized 'social contract' for New Zealand look like? Packed full of analysis, Jonathan Boston's latest BWB Text directs us towards nothing less than a new political settlement. Wide-ranging reform of the welfare state is needed, Boston argues, if we are to address the challenges presented by economic, social and technological upheaval. This quest is made all the more demanding - and pressing - by alarming ecological crises and the need for 'the good society' to place inter-generational responsibilities at its heart"--Publisher information.
