Review:

"This is a well-written and well-argued text with a huge amount of information covered in a succinct and readable manner." - Community Care "[The Author] provides a far-sighted and historical review of developments in social welfare...With often beautifully balanced and weighty phrasing." - Critical Public Health "It will prove useful as a basic textfor courses on English social policy designed for students from othersocial disciplines or from overseas. In our new modular world, it is the sort of book our students will increasingly demand." - Social History of Medicine "...anyone seeking a brief introduction to the history of social welfare in Britain should find this volume useful as the author has compressed an enormous amount of material into a 168 page text." - Albion "...excellent introduction to the history of 'social welfare'." - Labour Campaign for Criminal Justice

Book Description OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This textbook is aimed at undergraduate and diploma students across a wide range of the social sciences, with particular reference to those preparing for or involved in careers in social and public administration. It provides, in compact form, the story of social provision from medieval times to the present day, systematically examining major themes of: the relief of poverty and social care; healthcare and housing; crime and policing; and education.
