Power Resources Theory and the Welfare State

A Critical Approach : Essays Collected in Honour of Walter Korpi

eBook - 1998

This collection of essays looks at power resources theory (PRT), a ground-breaking approach to political theory that builds upon the existing strengths of Marxist theorizing while addressing its weaknesses. Rather than simply asserting that all social policies in all capitalist societies exist to maintain capitalism and serve the long-term interests of the capitalist class, PRT examines the nature and impact of social policies and the level and types of social inequality in a variety of advanced capitalist nations. The editors have compiled essays that examine the PRT approach, as well as essays that offer critical analysis of PRT. As existing summations of state theory literature largely omit PRT, this anthology is essential reading for anyone interested in social policy and radical approaches to social welfare.
