Review WINNER OF THE BRITISH ACADEMY'S INAUGURALPETER TOWNSEND POLICY PRESS BOOK PRIZE 'This study gives us a unique insight into the changing nature of institutional care over half a century. It is methodologically innovative, using older volunteers to help in the research, but it is reflective and self-critical about the limits of its approach - a model for students in the subject. It is beautifully written with moving accounts of the quality of the last years of individuals' lives. It could not be more relevant to policy in an ageing society.' - The British Academy juding panel for the inaugural Peter Townsend Policy Press Prize 'Elegantly written it is a pleasure to read...highly recommended.' - Journal of Social Policy 'This is an important book. It addresses key issues about the quality of residential care for the elderly, about "institutional" life more broadly, and especially about methodlogies and ethics in social science research.' - Canadian Journal of Sociology 'This book enhances our understanding of key issues, such as the balance between regulations and human dignity in care provision, and the stigmatization of residential care as opposed to other types of care provision, which are central to the current policy debate about the quality of care for older people and the future design of care provision.' - Social Policy and Administration 'Starting with Peter Townsend's landmark study of residential care, The Last Refuge, and re-tracing his footsteps the authors have produced a remarkable volume that successfully combines a record of the sea-change in residential care over the past 50 years, a compelling analysis of current care environments and quality, a novel example of participative research and a forceful critique of fashionable simplistic portrayals of institutions. The book is a fully worthy companion to Townsend's classic study and will become an indispensable text for anyone interested in how society treats some of its most vulnerable citizens.' - Alan Walker, Professor of Social Policy and Social Gerontology, University of Sheffield, UK 'For those working within social care [this book] provides some welcome answers around the history and development of residential care institutions, in particular providing an overview of practical issues of ownership, staff and residents, the living environment and daily activities. For an academic audience of historians and sociologists the text pays tribute to classic studies whilst celebrating contemporary developments in methodology.' - Kerry Allen, Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham, UK 'This is an important book that raises fascinating questions about the place of residential care in society and the similarities and differences in the way in which researchers undertook their tasks in 1960 and 2010...In this book, Julia Johnson, Sheena Rolph and Randall Smith highlights the questions that underlie the debates about residential living. Read it.' -Roger Clough, Professor Emeritus, Lancaster University 'Fascinating...there is much to reflect on in this book.' - CommunityCare.co.uk 'In identifying the differences and continuties between residential care in the 1950s and now, the authors succeed in emphasising the broad historical developments in the conceptualisation of welfare states and care while avoiding oversimplification. This book is important for any social scientist, empirical researcher and student of any social science discipline, and the fact that the data are recorded and stored promises a new revisiting study and studies which can, on the basis of historical developments, analyse the ideological persistence of the stigma of institutional care.' - Berhard Weicht, International Journal of Ageing and Later Life About the Author JULIA JOHNSON is Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Care at The Open University, UK.
