This book addresses an area of social policy that is relatively new and thus under-developed in the relevant literature. It covers all pension arrangements from a multidisciplinary perspective, rather than from economic analysis. Several published works do deal explicitly with privately delivered compulsory pensions, but that literature is incomplete.
Mark Hyde is Lecturer in Social Policy at the University of Plymouth in England. John Dixon is Professor of Public Management at the same university. Glenn Drover is Professor of Social Work at the University of Dalhousie, Canada.
