The New Politics of Home and Care explores the implications of recent economic and welfare crises on both everyday lives and public policy. With an innovative focus to their research, the book dives into debates about social policy and welfare at times of crisis, with a particular focus on the United Kingdom. The authors take interdisciplinary cues from human geography, social policy, feminist economics and political theory to address crucial contemporary topics such as austerity, economic restructuring, worsening inequality and resulting issues of resources, rationing and affordability across key areas.
Review Quotes
Sheila Peace, The Open University
“Raising the political agenda, these multidisciplinary authors come together to give a timely reminder of home as a place of care that is situated, intergenerational and essentially both private and public. An insightful book that needs to be read.”
