--Tony Fitzpatrick, University of Nottingham
"By addressing the topic of global social policy through the lens of global social problems, Vic George and Robert Page have added a useful volume to the international social policy literature. The authors have made a welcomed departure from the standard literature in the field by moving beyond the frameworks of mythological nationalism and comparative studies towards a much needed transnational social policy analysis."
