This fully updated edition of an essential introductory text offers a concise guide to the key structures and concepts in social policy and is now supplemented by unique and innovative digital content that adds depth and provides a truly integrated way of learning.

It is accompanied by a digital app, which is free to download and use with the book, that includes short videos with commentary, interactive charts and 'unboxed' examples that expand key issues raised in the text, enabling students to engage more deeply with statistical information.

The book draws on examples from around the world and focuses on explaining key terms and introducing key debates.

Written by experienced authors and teachers, the text explores the five pillars of welfare; social security, employment, education, health and housing, and this new edition adds a further chapter providing an overview of other fields such as criminal justice, social care and family policy.

This will be an invaluable resource for students new to social policy.
