5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful 20 Dec 2012
By me
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very helpful for my degree of social policy and sociology. Helped me in first year and is still helping in second year. It does not go into great depth but is great for a quick reference or insight into an aspect of social policy
