"This is an exciting and sustained interrogation of the social relations of 'responsible' welfare at the point of delivery. It transposes and transforms Lipsky's notion of 'the street level bureaucrat' by exploring agency, counter-agency and subversion within contemporary welfare governance. A must-read." Fiona Williams, Professor of Social Policy, University of Leeds "This timely book is essential reading, offering highly original and critical insights into the policy process in its contemporary context." Marjorie Mayo, Professor of Community Development, Goldsmith's College, University of London
