    An open access copy of this article is available and complies with the copyright holder/publisher conditions. Fitzpatrick’s latest book complements his earlier work Welfare Theory: An Introduction (2001), in which Fitzpatrick focused on what he called “classic” theories of welfare, while his latest book provides an overview of contemporary approaches to welfare theory – theoretical developments post-1990. Fitzpatrick notes that these two books overlap only in covering reciprocity, altruism and class. This speaks to the ongoing centrality of these issues in the welfare policy arena.
