Exploring social policy in the 'new' Scotland Paperback / softback

Edited by Gerry Mooney, Gill Scott


Exploring social policy in the 'new' Scotland is the first book to integrate the description and analysis of social policy in Scotland since devolution in 1999.

It has been designed to support the delivery of social policy and related courses in Scotland itself but also to appeal to students on social policy, politics, sociology, public policy and regional studies courses across the United Kingdom, on which devolution and its impact are examined. The contributors are all highly experienced researchers and academics from across the social sciences.

The book therefore presents a variety of perspectives and approaches with which to consider the key issues.

Up-to-date material on a wide range of social policy topics, including work and welfare, health and social work, criminal justice, education, and urban policy, means that the book will be valuable to academics, researchers, policy makers and practitioners, as well as students.
