Peter Townsend, who sadly passed away in June 2009, had a long career researching an exceptional range of topics within the social sciences and campaigning against social inequalities.This reader brings together for the first time a collection of his most distinctive work, allowing readers to review changes and continuities over the past six decades, and reflect on social issues that have returned to the fore today. A particular feature of the volume is in tracing the links between empirical evidence and both social theory and social policy, and how those disciplines intersect. This reader will provide a teaching and learning resource for students in different disciplines of the social sciences and will also provide an insight into the development of one scientist's entire intellectual approach. We hope it will be a fitting memorial to his life and work.

Review:

A valuable selection from the writings of an outstanding sociologist whose analyses have greatly enriched our understanding of social policy and its impact on people’s lives and the wider society. Adrian Sinfield, Professor Emeritus of Social Policy, School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh

This collection of Peter Townsend's writing is a tribute to his breadth of scholarship, and the superb clarity of his writing and his commitment will continue to inspire social scientists. Professor Jonathan Bradshaw, Department of Social Policy and Social work, University of York

This invaluable collection introduces readers to a wide range of Peter Townsend's writings over half a century. It is a fitting memorial to an outstanding scholar and campaigner. Professor Ruth Lister, Department of Social Sciences, Loughborough University

..this reader is an inspiration to us to collect and publish evidence in the cause of social change - and that, I'm sure, is the legacy for which Townsend would have wished. (It) is everything which students of social policy would have asked for. Citizens' Income Newsletter
