This is a third edition of a successful textbook that provides a contemporary account of how social services in the UK are paid for.
The new edition brings the textbook up-to-date with its fast-moving subject area, explaining the finance of human services - health care, education, housing, social security a nd social care-through a review of the economic literature.
It also gives an account of how the cash to pay for the services actually reaches schools, hospitals and social service departments, right from the start of the process, examining how government raises taxes, through to allocation of the funds.
Both comprehensive and expertly written, this textbook will continue to feature as key reading for a variety of Social and Policy related courses.
