These powers principally governed social welfare where there was already a degree of Scottish autonomy. Welfare has thus been central to the devolution project. The book looks at why social welfare issues were central to the devolution process in Scotland- explores the particular social and financial circumstances in which Scottish policy makers operate- reviews and assesses Scottish policies for children, education and lifelong learning- examines health policy, including care for the elderly, an especially controversial example of policy divergence from England and provides an invaluable overview of the Scottish welfare state is as it is, and discusses how it might develop in the future.

This book is essential reading for all those concerned with the contemporary and historical dimensions of social policy in Scotland and how they relate to developments in other parts of the United Kingdom.
