By Janie Percy-SmithThis timely book examines current policy responses to social exclusion. It begins by asking: what do we mean by social exclusion? What are the dimensions of social exclusion? How is it measured? and What are the common threads that run through contemporary policy? Each contribution assesses a different area of policy, describing the context for the intervention, examining key themes and lessons and assessing the likely effectiveness of policies.
