The fields of health care and social care are currently facing considerable challenges and public debate across the globe. Glasby’s clear and succinct book offers a valuable introductory guide to this multidisciplinary subject, helping people who want to study or work in health and social care understand why these services matter, how they have developed, and how they work today. Framed by vital historical and social policy context, this book considers: the social context for the delivery of health and social care; the history and nature of current services; the organization for funding and delivering services; and how to be a practicing professional in the field.
 
Review Quotes
Sally Richards, Oxford Brookes University
“Glasby has successfully integrated a historical perspective and key analytical concepts to produce a text which is comprehensive and simple but not simplistic. A valuable introduction to this complex field.”
Jill Manthorpe, King's College London
“There is a need for a good book that enables people to have a sense of where health and social care have come from.  Jon Glasby knows both health and social care; he also knows practitioners and managers.  This is informed, up-to-date and accessible – as good as it gets.  I would certainly recommend it.”
Joanne Smith, University of Bolton
“This is a well constructed textbook which offers a very balanced and comparative approach.  There is a good movement through policy into practice, with some key theory.  There is a logical order and sense of progression, which makes the information accessible.  It links well with the issues that are typically covered and of significance within health and social care.”
