The book is the outcome of prolonged, combined efforts of international social policy experts to extent the scope and the depth of welfare state analysis to new shores. The reader of this book may travel across the world, study formerly neglected case studies, and thus acquire an ample harvest of new knowledge. Traditional thoughts and theories may be supported or may be adapted to fit to new empirical realities of welfare state case studies in less-researched countries of the world. This particular book managed to bring to the reader a better understanding of otherwise greatly unfamiliar social welfare and welfare state systems. In an increasingly interconnected world, the understanding of social policy, programs and policies on the ground, need be triangulated with experiences from across the world. The case studies on developing countries in Latin America, Eastern-Central Europe, and Asia, included in this outstanding book have to a great extent increased the available information for policy- and theory-building.
