A thematic introduction to the concepts and themes underlying the provision of social welfare, this book draws material from sociology, political theory, economics and public and social administration. This introduces the vocabulary of the subject, preparing students for the main debates and more country- and/or service-oriented approaches to social policy. It looks at the nature of social policy, strategies for social welfare, types of welfare states and welfare state provision - and also includes sections on comparative social policy and education.
