about

In the last years of the nineteenth century and the first years of the twentieth, social reformers, labor leaders, and political elites across Europe, North American, and the Antipodes were actively debating the 'social question.' This term referred to a range of issues, all of which in some way touched on the question of how increasingly well-organized and politically mobilized industrial working classes were to be integrated into the polity.
Ann Shola Orloff is associate professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.  She is the coeditor, with Margaret Weir and Theda Skocpol, of The Politics of Social Policy in the United States.

Editorial Reviews

“There is a vast literature on the development of the welfare state but few substantive comparative books that pursue a causal analysis. Ann Orloff’s project will be an exceptionally important addition to the literature.  This book will force those interested in explaining the development of the welfare state to revise their arguments.”—Jill Quadagno,  Florida State University
