    Urban Affairs and Urban Policy

    Anthony Downs

Together, these essays form a veritable handbook of how to conduct urban policy analysis in many fields. The analysis and conclusions are directly relevant to the urban problems which are intensifying throughout the world today. Learn More

  2. THE VOLUNTARY SECTOR, THE STATE AND SOCIAL WORK IN BRITAIN

    THE VOLUNTARY SECTOR, THE STATE AND SOCIAL WORK IN BRITAIN

    Jane Lewis
    The Voluntary Sector, the State and Social Work in Britain offers a different perspective which shows that Britain has always had a mixed economy of welfare with the voluntary sector playing a major role. This book traces the ideas and practice of one of the most influential voluntary organisations, the Charity Organisation Society, which became the Family Welfare Association in 1946. It examines the meaning of voluntary personal social service, which became social work, and the nature of the shifting balance in social provision between the voluntary and statutory sectors from the late nineteenth to the twentieth century.
