This book presents a thematic selection of writings by eminent sociologist Robert Pinker, bringing together for the first time many articles either never before published or difficult to access today. Organized by theme, the articles and chapters cover such key topics as how families and communities act in defining and providing their own welfare, how attitudes to social services differ among users and nonusers, how social and political theories relate to actual policies, and much more. In doing so, the volume brings to the fore the importance and continuing relevance of Pinker’s work.
