Introduction to Academic pages

This website began life due entirely to the encouragement and support of Alison Shaw, the Chief Executive of Policy Press. My book ‘Cash Not Care’ was independently published in 2016 at great personal cost following rejection by Policy Press. Unknown to this author at the time, many academics who are regularly published by Policy Press contacted Alison when they learned that my book had been rejected. I’m told that this level of support for an unknown researcher was unprecedented and, as a gesture of good will, Alison kindly offered to provide MS with confidential access to anything published by Policy Press to permit the research to continue.

Due entirely to this support, five years since the publication of ‘Cash Not Care’, the research continues and MS has been published in a number of academic journals, has written chapters for academic texts and is invited to speak at conferences. Due to the significance of the academic research quoted throughout my work, Alison granted me permission to reproduce a selection of significant academic papers on this website, to make the research freely available to all, and that academic support has continued with a growing archive of very significant social policy research as published by Policy Press and by many others.

Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state

Published in September 2016, Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state is the research evidence the Coalition government tried to suppress, now in a book the Conservative government(s) hope no-one will notice.

Whilst the entire British press have been silenced, and refuse to offer the public access to the influence of corporate America with UK social policy reforms since 1992, Cash Not Care is now in the libraries of universities in the UK and in Australia, and is recommended reading for various social policy courses. The research evidence in the book is being used to educate social policy academics of the future.
