This introductory chapter begins by briefly setting out the focus of the book, namely contemporary issues, particularly on the ways in which social policy in Britain has been reshaped in the first decade of the 21st century, the arguments that lay behind those changes, and the issues that they raise for the future evolution of policy. This is followed by overview of the subsequent chapters. The ingredients that make policy work and the work of Howard Glennerster are discussed.
