Product Description

Review

"A valuable resource for all who study social policy at whatever level – not only for reference and guidance but for stimulation, provocation and inspiration." Adrian Sinfield, Professor Emeritus of Social Policy, The University of Edinburgh <!––end––> "A reliable guide through the jungle of terms, concepts, institutions and reformers that make up modern social policy. The short entries serve as a handy reference for students and practitioners alike while the longer entries depict complex theoretical concepts in a most accessible and lucid way." Professor Lutz Leisering, Bielefeld University

From the Back Cover

Written by a carefully selected team of experts, this comprehensive dictionary introduces all the major terms, issues and debates in British social policy. Whilst the focus is on Britain, entries also cover major international concepts and those drawn from other countries in comparative study. The Dictionary comprises larger entries on key debates and issues, brief explanations of major terms and concepts, and short definitions of minor terms. For students of social policy this will be the ideal book to turn to in order to discover more about a particular phenomenon, concept or theory, or to get a complete and authoritative overview of the field. For practitioners and teachers it will serve as an invaluable reference tool.
