The Wisconsin work programme implemented under the leadership of Republican governor Tommy Thomson served The Evolution of the US Workfare Model 37 as a model to emulate for right-wing (but also liberal) welfare reformers. Benefits were linked to responsible behaviour such as staying in school, not having additional children, staying with parents (for teenagers) and getting ready for jobs. State assistance was also time-limited (Weaver, 2000: 184). Welfare-based welfare reform proved that new ideas worked and were not just intellectual abstractions.

Outline of the book Chapter 1 analyses US welfare reform and describes how the lack of legitimacy of US social assistance programmes rendered them especially vulnerable to neo-liberal attacks. With the exception of the brief episode of the War on Poverty in the 1960s, welfare dependency always had a pejorative meaning. Only the deserving poor - those willing to work or who are incapable of working such as handicapped people- are considered worthy of public support.

The policy network model is firmly rooted in the British pluralist tradition. Rhodes's contention is that power is diffuse and extends beyond the core Executive (Marsh, Richards and Smith, 2001: 245). Nevertheless, Marsh and Rhodes acknowledge that policy networks reproduce to a large extent the distribution of power within society. Marsh and Rhodes (1992) distinguish five types of policy networks in a continuum from highly integrated policy communities to loosely integrated issue networks. Issue networks are characterised by an opportunistic aggregation of a wide variety of actors who share temporarily coinciding objectives.
