About this book


Family, State and Social Policy brings together two important themes: the changing nature of the family; and the relationship between family and state, as it is expressed in social policy. The book explores and clarifies the significance both of family change for policy, and of policy for families, outlining models that can be used in order to understand the state's approach and response to families.
