An important theoretical and empirical contribution to the debate on citizenship and the welfare state. This book develops Marshall's thesis on social citizenship in a way that is highly relevant to current analyses of the future of the welfare state. It examines the role community care policy and practice plays in shaping disabled people's citizenship in the UK, providing compelling evidence of the ways in which the welfare state can either support, or act as a barrier to disabled people's social participation. The author lays out a clear challenge to the current relationship between disabled people and the welfare state. It will be key reading for anyone concerned with the rights and duties of the state, welfare professionals (particularly social workers), disabled people and their families.
