As 2018 was such a very busy year, I’m not planning to commit to too many requests for 2019 as my time this year is already allocated to a major new project.

With the possibility of being published in one more academic journal later this year, I’ll then be fully occupied co-ordinating my next book; hopefully to be published by a social policy publisher and not self-published, which at the moment has the working title of: Social Policy Abused: preventable harm created by welfare reforms.

Given the growing academic interest in my original book, ‘Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state’, which has been added to various university libraries and to the recommended reading list for some social policy courses, it occurred to me that it was time to collate other detailed research evidence not conducted by academics; with some of the research written for the recent United Nations investigations of abuses in the UK.

I feel sure that, once collated, the academic world will appreciate the value of the additional social policy research, and I have no doubt that academics, students and the disabled community will benefit from having all this additional evidence co-ordinated into a book for ease of reference.

Meanwhile, given that last year I was invited to write a chapter for two significant new books, I am pleased to identify them below. ‘Social policy first hand: An international introduction to participatory social welfare’, is already published and enjoying critical acclaim, and ‘The Routledge Handbook of Disability Activism’, will be published later in 2019. I suggest that both are added to university libraries and future planned reading lists for students…
