Welcome to the Companion Website for
Understanding disability policy
by Alan Roulstone and Simon Prideaux
"Disability policy has changed dramatically over the last fifty years and especially so since the turn of 21st century. Roulstone and Prideaux have produced a comprehensive and accessible analysis of these changes that will prove to be an invaluable text for students, researchers and policy analysts across a range of disciplines: highly recommended."
Colin Barnes, University of Leeds
Aimed at undergraduate students in social policy, sociology, social work, health and social care, public health, nursing and other practical vocational courses, Understanding Disability Policy brings together detailed and up-to-date disability policy insights and critically situates these into the broader policy context. Postgraduate taught and research students in this range of subjects will also be able to draw on sections of the book. Find out more about the book here.
