Über diesen Titel
The third edition of Michael Hill's "Understanding Social Policy" is a substantial revision of this successful text. The latest information on policy changes is included and full consideration is given to the ways in which the terms of policy debate have changed. The chapters on policy making and implementation discuss the limitations and controversial aspects of the main social policies, and now examine the new strains imposed upon the doctrine of representative government in the political climate since the re-election of the Conservatives. Specific chapters dealing with social security, the personal social services, the health service, education and housing have all been revised to take account of developments such as the 1986 Social Security Act, the "Community Care" debate, the new labour market, unemployment and privatization. The book schould be of interest to students of social policy, as well as health workers and social workers.Book Description:
The seventh edition of Michael Hill's Understanding Social Policy updates his successful text to take into account policy innovations since Labour came to power in 1997 and to reflect the many ways in which the debate about social policy is changing. The book has been significantly reshaped to reflect new or strengthened policy linkages, in particularly those between social security and employment, and child care and education. It also contains a new chapter putting the UK in comparative perspective. Its last chapter examines the way in which social policy has been dramatically transformed by changes in politics and society in the last twenty years and contains a new section that looks specifically at 'social divisions' within the UK social policy system, including a discussion of the poorer deal often secured by women and by members of ethnic minorities.
