Community Care in Perspective: Care, Control and Citizenship

Welshman, John and Walmsley, Jan eds. (2006). Community Care in Perspective: Care, Control and Citizenship. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.

Abstract

This cohesive collection fills a major gap in medical and social history by offering a detailed account of community provision for so-called 'vulnerable adults' in the UK from 1948-2005. It examines key issues such as charity versus rights, the role of the market in care provision and the changing construction of social categories.
