Book Overview

Reviews of the First Edition:

thoughtful, critical, comprehensive, genuine. Byrne's work should prove compulsory reading for any critical and nuanced view of social exclusion.
Progress in Human Geography

The presentation of a single, coherent argument is one of the strengths of this book. It] fills a gap in the debate on social exclusion.
Political Studies

'Social Exclusion' is a key phrase in social policy and social politics across most of contemporary Europe. It is a description of the condition of individuals, households, neighbourhoods, ethnic and other 'identity' groups, who can be identified as being excluded from society.

The second edition of this widely read book explores developments in social theory, social experience and social policy in relation to Social Exclusion. The first part examines the origins of the term and implications of the difference between the ideas of 'exclusion', 'underclass', 'residuum' and related concepts. The discussion is informed by the application of Complexity Theory. In the updated second part, the theoretical account is developed through a detailed review of the dynamics of individual lives in a changing social order. Income equality, spatial division, and exclusion in relation to health, education and cultural provision and processes are examined in a range of societies in Europe and North America.
