Fantastic book as it deals effectively with three huge topics that are inextricably linked to be relevant to both practitioners and academics.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Debby on 23 Mar 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a well-written and accessible book which will be of particular interest to Social Work degree students but also to anyone with an interest in how the changing political climate has influenced the development of social work in the UK from Edwardian times to the present day. As the title informs us, this theme is exemplified with relation to older people and it addresses the assumptions and beliefs underlying current attitudes and policies and provides food for thought with relation to the problem of the rapidly ageing population.

Although it is mainly focussed on England, it also addresses international issues, especially as the various phases of the English experience can be exemplified in current policies in countries around the world.
