A Revolution in Family Policy: Where We Should Go from Here


A Revolution in Family Policy: Where We Should Go from Here Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tony Blair’s New Labour government has had a momentous impact on British family policy over the past fifteen years. It aimed to reduce poverty, improve child outcomes, and break the cycle of deprivation. In A Revolution in Family Policy, social policy analyst Clem Henricson asks whether or not these broad aspirations for general social betterment have been met. Raising important questions about the feasibility of the government’s programs, she proposes narrowing the scope of the programs to more realistic levels by focusing solely on family well-being. A stimulating, challenging, and timely debate, this book is critical reading for family and social policy analysts or anyone interested in productive social programs in this era of economic austerity.
