077480453X 194 pages including index and bibliography. Analyzes the respective roles of government and the voluntary sector in the financing and administration of social services. Focusing on developments in British Columbia from 1983 to 1991, when the Social Credit government actively pursued a policy of privatization, this book examines the growth of the voluntary sector there and presents data which track the impact of privatization on services. Examines the issues of funding and accountability of the voluntary sector as it adopts the public agent role and increasingly delivers services on behalf of the government. Raises important issues about government privatization policies and about the possible effects these policies will have on the future of the welfare state in Western society. Usual library markings. Average wear. A worthy working copy.
