"Disabled People and Social Policy: From Exclusion to Inclusion provides an informed and accessible introduction to the key issues in disability and social policy which have emerged in light of the changing approaches towards disability over the last fifteen years. The concepts of exclusion and inclusion provide the central focus around which the book is organised, and are examined in economic, social, political, ideological, moral and cultural terms." "Disabled People and Social Policy: From Exclusion to Inclusion, will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in disability studies and provides the ideal resource for students of social policy and social administration, social work, nursing, politics, and sociology. It will also be an invaluable resource for policy makers, managers and professionals in social services, social care, community care, and social security administration."--Jacket.
