Event description
A new book by political theorist Steven Klein takes a fresh look at the future of the welfare state in the 21st century.

About this Event

Ranging across political theory and intellectual history, The Work of Politics: Making a Democratic Welfare State (Cambridge University Press 2020) provides a vital contribution to contemporary thinking about the welfare state and challenges readers to rethink the distribution of power in society.

The book draws on the writings of Weber, Arendt, and Habermas, and historical episodes that range from the workers' movement in Bismarck's Germany to post-war Swedish feminism.

To celebrate publication, Dr Klein will be hosting a launch event on 2 March, with Professor Lois McNay (University of Oxford) acting as commentator.

*Please note: A link for the online event will be sent to attendees closer to the scheduled date*
