This book seeks to significantly extend previous research work on the rural impacts of national welfare reform and position it in a broader context. International Perspectives on Rural Welfare provides a critical, comprehensive and comparative account of the rural dimensions of welfare in a number of developed countries. The book brings together recent research from Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand to provide the seminal international book on rural welfare.
