'This is a beautifully constructed and apposite book for those seeking hope amid today's economic crisis and who work in development from any discipline or background. It challenges the conventional wisdom of money, commodities and economic growth as our main ways of understanding development and poverty and could have as much impact on development as Lanyard has done for the relationship between happiness and wealth. It is written by those and for those seeking a more inclusive model for understanding how people in developing countries see themselves and the possibilities of change' Patricia d'Ardenne, Chartist

'What is important and original (and doubtless in the eyes of some, presumptuous) about their project is that it not only tells us what our basic needs are (those of health and autonomy), but offers empirical criteria for the meeting of these goals' Kate Soper, New Left Review.

'This is the book that social policy scholars have been awaiting a very long time. Thanks to Ian Gough, Geof Wood and their collaborators, we now have a rigorous, comprehensive, and extraordinarily nuanced and subtle analysis of social protection systems in the Third World. The scholarly challenge is truly formidable, and they have met it with courage and aplomb. Insecurity and Welfare Regimes in Asia, Africa and Latin America is one of those rare books that no welfare state scholar or practitioner can ignore'. Gosta Esping-Andersen

 

'This book is a path-breaking contribution to comparative theory. The main theoretical argument is carried in ...Gough's excellent overview - This important book takes the whole debate about welfare regimes forward splendidly'. Michael Hill, Social Policy and Administration
