Western Welfare in Decline Globalization and Women's Poverty Edited by Catherine Kingfisher The feminization of poverty is increasingly recognized as a global phenomenon, affecting women not only in third world countries but also in the West. Taking globalization as its starting point, Western Welfare in Decline explores the plight of poor single mothers in five English-speaking nations that have implemented welfare restructuring: the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, and Aotearoa/New Zealand. This restructuring is analyzed in relation to the emergence of neoliberalism, which valorizes the free market, individualism, and a circumscribed role for the state. Contributors to Western Welfare in Decline creatively combine theoretical and empirical analysis, emphasizing the economic and social goals of welfare reforms and the discourses of labor, gendered subjectivity, and the separation of public and private spheres. They document how the neoliberal project of welfare reform interacts with local cultures to create both similar and divergent new cultural formations and identify opportunities for asserting the social rights of poor single mothers who are being denied these rights at the level of the nation-state. Catherine Kingfisher is Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of Lethbridge. She is editor of Women in the American Welfare Trap, also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press. 2002 | 232 pages | 6 x 9 ISBN 978-0-8122-3668-2 | Cloth | $69.95s | £45.50 ISBN 978-0-8122-1812-1 | Paper | $28.95s | £19.00 ISBN 978-0-8122-0247-2 | Ebook | $28.95s | £19.00 World Rights | Social Science, General, Economics, Sociology Short copy: Western Welfare in Decline explores the plight of poor single mothers in five English-speaking countries that have implemented welfare restructuring: the United States, Canada, Britain, and New Zealand.
