The thoroughly revised and extended new edition of Social Policy: Issues and Developments provides a comprehensive introduction to contemporary British social policy, whilst acting as a complete learning resource for introductory courses and ultimately later modules of study. Written by leading experts in the field, the text explores the major topics and areas in contemporary social policy, including health, housing, work, education, crime and criminal justice, and examines the socio-economic, political and governmental contexts within which social policy operates.

Prominence is given to contemporary issues, to provoke thought and draw comparisons between theory and practice; it will also cover all the essential service areas within a historical context. Issues are addressed throughout in a lively and accessible style, and examples are richly illustrated to encourages the student to engage with theory and content and clearly see the relevance of social policy in our understanding of society. A dedicated companion website supports the text and adds further value for the student.Social Policy: Issues and Developments is an essential textbook for undergraduate students taking courses in social policy and related courses such as criminology, health studies, politics, sociology, nursing and social work.
