This book identifies and analyses theoretical, empirical and methodological issues in the construction of a contemporary sociology of social work. This is generally defined as being informed by a critical appreciation of modern sociology and addressed to social work as a whole. The first chapter shows that this definition is inaccurate. The author criticises existing conventional sociologies with an argument that the sociology of social work also has to be a sociology of sociology in critically selecting and fashioning its own analytical tools. A new theoretical framework (anti-reductionism) is developed and shown to be empirically productive. The book concludes with proposals for the future.

Health service policy and health policy have changed considerably over the past fifteen years and there is a pressing need for an up-to-date sociological analysis of health policy. Not only have policies themselves changed but new policy themes – such as evidence-based policy and practice, an increasing focus on a primary care led health service, a growing recognition of the need to address inequalities through public health policies and a focus on the views and the voice of the user and the public– have emerged alongside some of the old. Following up the very successful The Sociology of the Health Service, this all-new volume covers a broad range of key contemporary health services issues. It includes chapters on consumerism, technology, evidence-based practice, public health, managerialism and social care among others, and incorporates references to new developments, such as regulation and incentivization, throughout. The New Sociology of the Health Service provides a vital new sociological framework for analyzing health policy and healthcare. It is an important read for all students and researchers of medical sociology and health policy.
