This new edition of a widely-respected textbook examines welfare policy and racism in a broad framework that marries theory, evidence, history and contemporary debate. Fully updated, it contains:
• a new foreword by Professor Kate Pickett, acclaimed co-author of The Spirit Level
• two new chapters on disability and chronic illness, and UK education policy respectively
• updated examples and data, reflecting changes in black and minority ethnic demographics in the UK
• a post-script from a minority student on her struggle to make a new home in Britain
Suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in social policy, sociology and applied social sciences, its global themes of immigration, austerity and securitisation also make it of considerable interest to policy and welfare practitioners.
