In light of recent skepticism about the effectiveness of social research, this work provides an opportune reassessment of its influence. It also proposes new ways to consider the relationship of research to reform. The range of topics covered includes secondary educational reform, changing concepts of social work, women's studies, as well as the role of evaluation research in social policy in the United States and Sweden.

About the Author:

Colin Crouch is a Fellow and Tutor in Politics at Trinity College, Oxford, and Lecturer in Sociology, Oxford. Anthony Heath is an Official Fellow in Sociology and Politics at Nuffield College, Oxford.

Review:

'the book includes useful discussions, particularly, on the role of social work in the context of community care ... to write the history of ethical socialism as the reproduction of the sociology of social reform. This is the book's single most important achievement, the clearest sign of its own moral position" Social Policy and Administration

`these essays in honour of A.H. (Chelly) Halsey are well above the usual standard ... This book is unusually successful as a Festschrift. One is impressed throughout by the commitment, breadth, humanity and prescience of the scholar being honoured. One is reminded of path-breaking achievements and outstanding scholarship. And the generally high standard of the book convinces us that the themes continue to be pursued and progress is being made' Sociology

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1993. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book provides a timely reassessment of the relationship between social research and social reform. A. H. Halsey's work on educational opportunity is a particularly significant example of the study of this relationship, and his retirement from the directorship of the Department of Social and Administrative Studies at the University of Oxford provides an opportunity to review his contribution to date. It has been a rare oeuvre, combining a strong moral commitment to egalitarian social reform with a vigorous concern for evidence and quantitative research. In this book leading scholars attempt to come to terms with Professor Halsey's contribution by offering essays in their own specialisms that reflect his continuing influence on their work.The range of subjects covered reflects the breadth of his influence and interests: Canon Barnett on ethical socialism; changing conceptions of social work; community and citizenship; social groups and movements within both State and market; an assessment of European Poverty Programmes; the reform of secondary education; options for reform of post-16 education and training; higher education policy in Britain and the USA; social mobility and meritocracy; the role of social research in community development; women's studies in sociology, and the role of evaluation research in social policy in the USA and Sweden. In the face of current scepticism about its effectiveness, Social Research and Social Reform provides important evidence on the influence of social research and suggests new ways in which its relationship to social reform should be viewed.
