About the Author

Hartley Dean is professor of social policy at the London School of Economics. His 30 years in academia were preceded by a 12-year career as a welfare rights worker in one of London's most deprived multicultural neighbourhoods. His principal teaching and research interests stem from concerns with poverty, social justice and welfare rights. Among his more recently published books are Welfare Rights and Social Policy (Prentice Hall, 2002), Social Policy (Polity, 2006 & 2012) and Understanding Human Need (The Policy Press, 2010).
