Traces the progress of the ‘Reorganization of social services in Munich’ project, discussing the socio-political arguments for change, the background of social services provision prior to the project, the economic conditions prevailing during the lifetime of the project, the perceptions and influences of social workers, political parties and service recipients and barriers to change.
