This comprehensive and interdisciplinary volume on community care representing a range of perspectives and approaches, brings together leading writers and researchers in the field. It contains both extracts from old classics on the nature of community along with new work in areas such as familial obligations, social markets and case management. In addition the four parts of the book - Community, Care, Policy and Practice - each contain an anthology of short extracts from autobiographical and experiential accounts and contemporary and historical policy and political documents. 'As a source of up-to-date information on a breadth of related subjects, the book is a valuable reference for students. As a handy update for practitioners with an interest in some of the classic and latest thinking on community care issues, it offers endless stimulation for your grey matter.' - Nursing Times
