Covers issues of central policy importance

This book reviews some of the most challenging developments in British society as they are understood by policy-makers and by academics. The key point is that academic debates identify a range of ways in which issues can be understood and tackled, but policy is typically based on a narrow subset of possible approaches. This is illustrated by discussion of climate change, demographic shifts, the response to greater ethnic and religious diversity, the debate about community and local area politics, democratisation, nudge, the international financial crisis, and the growth of popular disillusion with politics and politicians. These areas range across economic, social and political issues.

Readership: The 'Policy Community': academics, journalists, politicians, senior civil servants, lobby groups, think-tanks and private agencies interested in public policy. Also academics and higher-level students in political science, public administration, political sociology, social and public policy.
