About this title


As the system of social welfare governance and delivery in the United Kingdom faces continued, radical change, this important book argues that this change is so extensive that we should consider it a fundamental transformation or revolution. Assessing twenty years of changes across the whole of the United Kingdom, Derek Birrell and Ann Marie Gray show how a new public governance perspective has replaced the dominance of public management, reflecting the increasingly plural and fragmented nature of public policy implementation. Drawing on examples across a range of policy areas, this comprehensive book unravels the complex ways in which changes in social policy and governance interact in the delivery of social welfare, making it essential reading for welfare researchers, students, and policy makers.

About the Author:

Derek Birrell is professor of social policy at the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, where Ann Marie Gray is a senior lecturer in social policy. They are the coauthors of Transforming Adult Social Care: Contemporary Policy and Practice, also published by Policy Press.
