Social Problems and the Family
- Rudi Dallos - University of Plymouth, UK
- Eugene McLaughlin - City University London, UK
Social Policy (General)
In examining these social problems, the contributors address key definitional issues, assess traditional and alternative theoretical perspectives and survey different modes of intervention. They show just how pervasive and complex the state regulation of family life is in contemporary society.
With its illuminating interdisciplinary approach, this volume is an essential textbook for students and practitioners in all fields of family-related social work, social policy and social science disciplines. It is a Course Book for The Open University course D311 Family Life and Social Policy.
`This clearly written and attractively presented book provides a succinct overview of contemporary social problems, with relevance well beyond the UK situation' - Family Matters
