This book sets out the major features of the personal social services in Britain tracing their past, present and discussing possible futures. It includes a study of the social, political and legal basis for policy and practice and considers the shortcomings, strengths and impact of social services provision on users and workers giving emphasis to the changing relationships between public provision by the state, voluntary and private provision, and self-help in the wake of internal markets in health and social care.

Review:

'...cleverly mixes together theory and social work history with a general tour of current professional issues...This book is clearly written and approachable, with a useful list of legislation and key milestones which date back to 1854.'
Anthony Douglas, Director of Social Services, London Borough of Havering
Community Care, 20-26 March 1997

'This text is clearly and accurately prepared for the mainstream market in social policy texts for students and lecturers involved in basic qualifying training...it can be considered an absolutely admirable introduction for the relatively uncritical reader...This text,...has a breadth of vision as well as an attention to detail which destines it to be a key social policy text for Dip.S.W. training for years to come.'
British Journal of Social Work, Vol 27, No 4. August 1997

'Adams's book is informative, comprehensive and up-to-date in its description of the successes and failures of the Personal Social Services in post-war Britain...This is a well argued and balanced book and one packed with information.'
Ageing and Society, Vol 17, 1997
