This chapter introduces the reader to the three main parts of this policy review. It begins by identifying the two factors that differentiate this current Review from previous ones. It then states the three important functions of the policy review, before finally moving on to a detailed summary of the contents of the book. The first part is completely focused on the various developments in social policy that have occurred across the central areas of UK welfare. The second part pays particular attention to substantive material that has been drawn from social research agendas. Finally, the third portion of this book looks at the issues and themes that were personally chosen by the editors of the Review.
