Social Justice or Social Exclusion?

Understanding State Welfare will be essential reading for students of social policy. It provides a clear understanding of both theories of welfare and the history of the development of the British welfare state.
For level 5 students in youth and community. Good foundations for current reforms proposed.
This is an excellent book that will encourage critical discussion centered on the (future) roles of the welfare state, in the wider context of economic crisis and response.
I find this book very interesting. However, I belived that the students in Sweden will find it too narrow because it focuses mainly on England.
