Image Not Available

'Strong social policy is essential for sustainable growth. This book is an extremely useful overview of social policy issue for policy makers and anyone who wants to understand the true roots of successful sustainable development'

- Ian Johnson, Vice President for Sustainable Development, The World Bank

'Throughout the world issues of social development have now taken centre stage. There is no more comprehensive and readable guide to the choices and conflicts of this global drama. This book is essential reading for all students and practitioners of social development - and for every World Bank economist'

- David Piachaud, Professor of Social Policy, London School of Economics

This much-needed textbook fulfils a major gap in providing a complete up-to-date guide and introduction to the increasingly important role of social policy in the context of development processes and practice.

Across a number of key sectors and areas of social policy concern, the authors accessibly introduce and explain the main conceptual debates, the most recent policy discussions, and provide applied examples to illustrate the latest developments in the social policy and planning field. Central topics covered include:

- poverty

- rural development

- urban development

- education

- health

- social work

- social welfare

- international development and cooperation.

Social Policy for Development is an essential text for all students and practitioners alike seeking a deeper understanding of the issues of poverty, social exclusion and deprivation across social policy and development studies internationally.

About the Author:

James Midgley is the Harry and Riva Specht Professor of Public Social Services and Dean of the School of Social Welfare at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to Social Welfare in Global Context which was published by Sage in 1997, he has published widely on issues international social work and social welfare. He is particularly well known for his work on social work and social policy in the developing world and he is widely regarded as a pioneer of this field. His most important books dealing with social work and social welfare in the developing countries include: Professional Imperialism: Social Work in the Third World, Heinemann.1981; The Social Dimensions of Development; Social Policy and Planning in the Third World, Wiley, 1982 (with M. Hardiman); Social Security, Inequality and the Third World, Wiley 1984; Comparative Social Policy and the Third World (with S. MacPherson) Harvester, 1987; Social Development: The Developmental Perspective in Social Welfare. Sage, 1995; and Social Policy for Development (with A. Hall, Sage, 2004). Professional Imperialism and Social Security, Inequality and the Third World were among the first to address issues of social work and Social Security in the developing countries.

Midgley is also a pioneer in the field of international social work. He formulated the proposal for Profiles in International Social Work, one of the first books dealing with international social work which was co-edited with M. C. Hokenstad and Shanti K. Khinduka and published by NASW Press for the World Social Work Congress in 1992. Subsequently, he published two additional books with M. C. Hokenstad on international social work for NASW Press. These are Issues in International Social Work (1997) and Lessons from Abroad: Adapting International Social Welfare Innovations (2004). Midgley’s graduate textbook Social Welfare in Global Context which was published by Sage in 1997 has been widely adopted.

His other recent books include: The Handbook of Social Policy (with M. Tracy and M. Livermore) Sage, 2000; Controversial Issues in Social Policy (with Howard Karger and Brene Brown, Allyn & Bacon, 2003), and Lessons from Abroad: Adapting International Social Welfare Innovations. (With M. C. Hokenstad NASW Press, 2004).
