Review:

This is an exciting and innovative textbook on welfare policy making... introducing students of social policy to a wealth of perspectives and literature not often brought together in an introductory book... an outstanding text. British Journal of Social Work, review of 1st edition

I think it is the best book of its kind available for students, and I would not hesitate to recommend it. Ian Greener in Journal of Social Policy
