Biography and social exclusion in Europe

Chamberlayne, Prue; Rustin, Michael and Wengraf, Tom eds. (2002). Biography and social exclusion in Europe. Bristol, UK: Policy Press.




Throughout Europe, standardised approaches to social policy and practice are being radically questioned and modified. Beginning from the narrative detail of individual lives, this book rethinks welfare predicaments, emphasising gender, generation, ethnic and class implications of economic and social deregulation. Taking an innovative socio-biographical approach to comparative social policy, it argues that understanding individually differentiated biographical resources and strategies provides bedrock for the appropriate training and effective practice of policy makers, practitioners and researchers.
