[Autom. eng. transl.] What can be the best welfare arrangements? On the one hand, the ideal model according to which social well-being should emerge from the State (welfare state) still resists. On the other hand, the model that sees it emerge from the market (welfare mix) is being imposed. Finally, in the background comes the idea that welfare has always been produced and can only be produced, in essence, by society. This model is known as the welfare society. This volume traces the evolution of these different visions, systematizing the complex background of thought and scientific elaborations on which the social policies of the future should be based to include all the elements of the complexity involved, beyond any naive simplification. It is a book aimed at scholars of social policy, the various figures of policy makers and the managers of public or third sector organizations. It is equally useful for university students of social policies and the various operators in the helping professions. In the corporate setting, the latter find themselves acting in intermediate spaces between public systems and local associations: they can thus play a leading role in catalyzing the social energies necessary to counter social-welfare problems or those linked to control of deviant behavior.
