CORPORATE POWER AND SOCIAL POLICY IN A GLOBAL ECONOMY: BRITISH 
WELFARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE
Kevin Farnsworth, Department of Social and Political Studies, South 
Bank University
This groundbreaking book investigates and documents corporate influence
on social policies at global/regional, national and local levels. It 
argues that we cannot understand the recent history and present 
direction of the welfare state unless we focus on the role that 
business has played in its development.

GRANDPARENTING IN DIVORCED FAMILIES
Neil Ferguson, Cardiff Family Studies Research Centre, Cardiff Law 
School with Gillian Douglas, Nigel Lowe, Mervyn Murch and Margaret 
Robinson
This book is the first in-depth exploration of grandparents' 
relationships with adult children and grandchildren in divorced 
families. It asks what part grandparents might play in public policy 
and whether measures should be taken to support their grandparenting 
role. Do they have a special place in family life that ought to be 
recognised in law?

SUPPORTING FAMILIES: THE FINANCIAL COSTS AND BENEFITS OF CHILDREN SINCE 
1975
Stuart Adam and Mike Brewer, Institute for Fiscal Studies
Drawing on a large-scale survey spanning the last 28 years, this report
analyses entitlements to child-contingent taxes and benefits for 
thousands of households with children in the UK. It examines how 
support has varied across households and over time, separates the 
impact of policy from socio-economic changes, and compares government 
support for children with available estimates of the actual costs of 
children.
Paperback 14.95 (US$25.50) ISBN 1 86134 571 2

THE WELL-CONNECTED COMMUNITY: A NETWORKING APPROACH TO COMMUNITY 
DEVELOPMENT
Alison Gilchrist, Community Development Foundation
Policy interest in the contribution that communities can make to civil 
society and democratic renewal has grown under New Labour. Key 
programmes, particularly those promoting regeneration and renewal, 
require community participation in partnerships and public 
decision-making. This book demonstrates how informal and formal 
networks strengthen communities and improve partnership working.
