About This Book

This edition of Social Policy Review presents an extensive analysis of the coalition government's social policies. In an expanded first section, experts in a range of policy areas analyse the rationale behind, and implications of, government reforms, whilst the second section examines education policy in an international context. It is essential reading for social policy academics and students and for anyone who is interested in the implications of government policy.
