This collection of work has been produced as a result of a major 1994 UK seminar on the measurement and analysis of social exclusion, sponsored by the European Commission and the UK Department of Social Security. There are contributions from a wide range of academics with varying backgrounds. Three main concerns are targeted: the conceptualisation of social exclusion; the measurement of social exclusion; the indicators for monitoring the effectiveness of policies for combating social exclusion. * * This book provides an invaluable review of the literature available and presents major new thinking in terms of theory, understanding and data analysis. It will be important reading for students, researchers and policy makers working in this field.
