Here's what you say about us...

`Selected articles published over the past 15 years in the journal of Critical Social Policy are brought together in this volume, producing an innovative reader on social welfare policy. The major contribution to the social policy literature is the multiple perspectives that are represented across articles. The volume works as a clollection because there is a unifying theme, a critical assessment of welfare policy and theories of participatory change, with room enough for a variety of perspectices from the standpoint of exclusionary design and practice.... Policy analysts, as well as applied and academic researchers, would benefit from this book. As a text, Critical Social Policy shoud be required reading for graduate courses in social policy, public administration and social inequality' - Health


'This collection is drawn from articles first published in the journal of Critical Social Policy and represents an emerging voice in British social policy and its central concerns. The first seven essays examine the historical and contemporary inter-relationships between both the discipline and practice of social policy and inequalities structured around gender, age, sexuality, disability and "race" in British society. The second five offer a more theoretical exploration of issues around citizenship, needs and participation given that exclusive" construction of welfare. Taken together, these two sections go some way to offering a socialist and anti-discriminatory perspective on welfare radically different from both the neo-liberal and Fabian socialist traditions' - SAGE Race Relatons Abstracts
