British Social Solicy 1945 to the Present

Product description

This softcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has some minor but noticeable markings on front and back. There is also some minor very minor wear to the edges of the cover as well. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition overall, and are without issue.

Covering the period from the end of the Second World War to the present day, Howard Glennerster focuses on the Welfare State to explore the myths that have shaped popular conceptions of social policy, and which continue to dominate current debates. From the earliest days of the Welfare State, to New Labour's reform commitments for the new century, Glennerster concludes that social policy can only ever be understood in the context of the political and economic concerns of the time. For this third edition the author provides a new final chapter covering New Labour's policy in the twenty-first century and updates the book's earlier chapters, tables, charts, and select bibliography.
