Abstract

Drawing together a range of critical perspectives from leading academics, this edited volume highlights the need for the social and legal needs of carers to be reassessed. Through tracing the development of carers in social policy research and the various ways they have been counted and categorized, it argues for a fuller understanding of the scope and diversity of caring relationships.
