Summary
"Historical and contemporary debates about individualization are analyzed in this volume. It includes diverse contributions from class research, critical policy studies, life course methods, political theory, post-structuralism, psycho-social perspectives, queer theory, and social work. Many of the contributors critically engage with, and propose alternatives to, dominant neoliberal discourses of individualization."--BOOK JACKET
