"It is the central concern with issues of social inequality and social justice that binds this collection of papers on key areas of social policy in contemporary Scotland and makes it so compelling. This is an invaluable text not only for those in Scotland but for all concerned with developments in social policy across the devolved UK and elsewhere." Charlotte Williams OBE, Keele University. " Mooney and Scott have brought together a range of contributions that demonstrate the challenges Scotland faces, and the possibilities and constraints in different policy arenas that are available to its policy makers and citizens. This book offers important lessons for Scottish and wider UK social policy and will be required reading for students, policy makers and practitioners. " Kirstein Rummery, University of Stirling.
