The text continues the study of social policy from a coherently formulated theoretical perspective, building arguments and discussion points using the latest census data and Australian welfare statistics. It interprets policies and related events and invites readers’ critical reception.
This analysis of current social policy is essential reading for any social policy student in Australia and for professionals engaged in the administration of policy and service delivery.
The structure of the content makes the book suitable as a text for a semester course on social policy.
