This book offers a comprehensive evaluation of community care strategies within the context of government social policy, and assesses the recent shifts of political power from Conservative to Labour towards the end of the century. Unlike the majority of texts in the field of community care, it makes explicit the historical, philosophical, social and political inter-connections, and therefore provides an in-depth understanding of changing policy issues for students, practicioners and managers in health and social care.

Review:

In short, this highly readable book achieves its objective of providing a solid analysis of the often perplexing move from institutional to community care without oversimplifying or demonizing the economic and political forces that are at play. It is suitable for students of social policy.Social Science and Medicine 54 (2002)Elsevier Sciences
