This book confronts one of the most fiercely contested issues in current political debates: how is welfare state retrenchment possible in modern democracies despite the welfare state's continuing popular appeal? Starke offers an international comparative analysis of welfare state retrenchment and an in-depth examination of its radical deployments.

Castles, Adjunct Professor of Political Science, Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University

'As somebody who has been working in social policy for many years, I found this well-written book gave me many new insights. It provides an excellent outsider's view of the strengths, weaknesses and development of the New Zealand social security system.' - Robert Stephens, Social Policy Journal of New Zealand

'This book has much to offer...[it] deserves a prominant place on the bookshelf with studies on retrenchment' - Journal of European Social Policy
