Legitimation of Social Rights and the Western Welfare State: A Weberian Perspective

Synopsis

This discerning and timely study revitalizes Weber's ideas, applying them to welfare state redistributions and synthesizing them with major issues in political science, law, public administration, social welfare policy, and philosophy. Friedman depicts both the emergence of the welfare state in Britain and the United States and the special problems of legitimizing social rights raised by the need for administration of those rights.
