'Social work students - and others from the broader social and human services - need to understand the interaction between policies and programmes on the one hand and lived social experiences on the other, with their mutual shaping within the wider context of societal change. Programmes provide opportunities and constrain choices, while policies can be reshaped as a result of citizen and professional activism. This freshly-minted, New Zealand-orientated text provides the necessary descriptions of the relevant social institutions as well as providing a rich sociological perspective on how they work and their often fateful consequences.' Charles Crothers Professor of Sociology Auckland University of Technology
