The seventh edition of this classic guide to social administration was published in 1990, and Dr Muriel Brown and Dr Sarah Payne have now fully updated the text to take into account changes in legislation and social practice.
The book continues to provide essential, up-to-date, information about social problems and the structure and working of the social services. It also identifies the main lines of development in social legislation and clarifies the issues that dominate social policy. Major changes to provision in social security, health, education, employment and personal social services have been incorporated and the conflicts around these changes explored. The trend towards the privatization of welfare and the centralizing role of the state are discussed in the context of economic change.
First published in 1969, this text will be essential reading for all students, lecturers and professionals in social policy, sociology, policy-making
