This core text book takes social policy back to its basics. Concise, accessible and engaging, each chapter is structured around a key question, such as 'What Is Social Policy And Why Is It Relevant To You?', 'Do You Pay Too Much Tax For The Social Policy Benefits You Receive?' Or 'Can Social Policy Solve The Problem Of Poverty?'. It breaks the subject down to make it more understandable and relatable to real life so students understand the theory that underpins social policy but also what it actually means in practice.
This is essential reading for students taking an introductory Social Policy module as part of a Social Policy or Social Work degree programme, and anyone else wanting a straight forward guide to connecting the theory with people's lives.
