Care: Personal Lives and Social Policy considers how normative assumptions about the meanings, practices and relationships of care are embedded in our everyday lives. It explores the ways in which these shape our sense of self and the nature of our relations with others. At the same time the book examines how social policy and welfare practices construct these relations and give or deny them meaning and validity. The authors draw upon a range of theoretical approaches and research evidence to bring into focus some of the different spaces and places where questions about care, in all its different dimensions, have been lived out, debated and struggled over. Each highlights the significance that class, 'race', gender, sexuality and age play in the analysis of care relations.

Review:

This book is essential reading for all who want to improve their understanding of the complexities of care and caring in the context of the professional and personal lives of those involved in the process. Hilary Land, School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol

... a functional textbook for students, and others, who want a basic grounding in this subject. Health Matters

... will help students and practitioners develop a nuanced understanding of the meaning and morality of care, and the way in which this is implicated in the construction of personal identities and social relationships. Marian Barnes, Institute of Applied Social Studies, University of Birmingham

Synopsis:

The book offers important insights into this deeply ambiguous topic and the complex nature of its connections to our personal lives and the making of social policy. It is one in an innovative series - Personal Lives and Social Policy - published by The Open University and The Policy Press. The series comprises four interactive texts that successfully weave together new and challenging questions about the study of social policy with a range of teaching resources to support the development of the reader's own knowledge and understanding.
