"Social Policy: Themes and Approaches" is a thematic introduction to the concepts underlying the provision of social welfare and the processes by which welfare is organised and delivered. Drawing on materials from a range of disciplines, including sociology, political theory, economic, public and social administration, the book introduces the student to the vocabulary of the subject and the main debates,. It therefore prepares them for a better understanding of material set in the context of particular countries, services or professional fields.

About the Author:

Paul Spicker, Centre for Public Policy & Management, The Robert Gordon University

Review:

There is more food for thought here than in most introductory texts. It captures the very particular approach to the study of social issues that is British 'social policy', which is gaining ground internationally. It also gives really helpful advice to any student embarking on this rewarding journey. Howard Glennerster, Emeritus Professor of Social Policy, London School of Economics and Political Science
