An introductory guide aimed at students of social policy, both beginning and more advanced, this book presents clear explanations of the major concepts that are at the core of the study and application of social policy. Each entry describes the concept and shows how it is applied in policy; each chapter also includes a range of tasks and exercises designed to push students to think more deeply about the ideas that drive their discipline.
