Understanding theories and concepts in social policy
Part of the Understanding Welfare: Social Issues, Policy and Practice series
A central theme of this lively and accessible text is that theory helps us to understand policy, politics and practice.
The book combines an in-depth exploration of selected theoretical perspectives and concepts with the student-friendly format of the Understanding Welfare series.
The author uses diverse examples from contemporary social policy to help theoretical arguments come alive.
It should provide a key text for 2nd and 3rd year undergraduates and postgraduates in social policy and related subjects, as well as their teachers.
