[First paragraph] Foucault’s lectures of 1979 offer an astonishingly early and suggestive survey of the rise, and varieties, of neo-liberalism. In this review, I do two things: first, I take up some of the key themes identified by Foucault and consider their significance for processes of welfare reform; and second, I problematize the relationship between programmatic statements and the policies and practices of governing welfare. Here I return to the dull empiricism of social policy as an academic subject and suggest that using social policy changes to illustrate large programmes may be a risky business.
