Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198296096, Hardcover)This book investigates examples of social policy in Britain and the United States that conflict with liberal democratic ideals. It examines the use of eugenic arguments in the 1920s and 1930s, the use of work camps in the 1930s, and the introduction of work-for-welfare programs since the 1980s. The author argues that government accommodation of illiberal policies are a paradox of a liberal democratic framework.
