    Gender and the Welfare State explores the configuration of care, work and welfare in eight countries: France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK and the USA. Bringing together the most recent empirical data available, it examines the impact of the welfare state on women’s and men’s roles and power relations, and on their access to resources.

Four major theoretical traditions—class-analytic, liberal, neo-Weberian, and culturalist—are identified.
