This text provides students with a critical understanding of similarities and differences in contemporary European societies. Whilst its focus is particularly on Germany, Spain, Sweden and the UK as representative and interesting examples of different social regimes it makes wide reference to countries across Europe as a whole. The changing relationship between work and welfare is explored through such important sociological and social policy issues as changing patterns of employment and work, women and social policies, and poverty and social exclusion.
