$112.00 $95.20

This new edition of an acclaimed undergraduate text offers both a critical commentary on the core areas of social policy in Britain – particularly as they have developed under the auspices of the New Labour government – and an appraisal of the key ideas currently informing British welfare policy. It thus combines discussion of staple topics with original arguments about the new shape of social policy at the start of the twenty-first century. All the chapters are freshly commissioned by the highly regarded editors.
