Unemployment and Welfare: Social Policy and the Work of Social Work
This increased polarization of rich and poor brought on by the re-structuring of capitalism meant that unemployment and underemployment remained high during the latter two thirds of the 1980s in spite of the general upturn in the economy.
At a time, in the early 1990s, when yet another recession is forecast, the indepth analysis of social policy issues and their implications for social work practice provided in this book will be a vital tool both for those involved in social work practice and those studying and implementing social policies to meet the new crisis.
