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