Abstract

The primary focus of this book is on social policy in the United Kingdom. Most social policies affecting the lives of UK residents have been developed within the country on a national basis by the British government, or at a local level by other agencies or authorities with devolved powers from national government; and by and large social policy has been studied and analysed at a national level. As we have already discussed, however, in both economic and social terms Britain is no longer, if it ever was, an isolated national social entity.
