Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Created to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Bailey and Brake's seminal text Radical Social Work (1975), this volume seeks to explore the radical tradition within social work and assess its legacy, relevance and prospects. With a foreword by Roy Bailey, the book brings together leading academics within social work in Britain to reflect on the legacy of Radical Social Work (both the original text and the wider social movement) within social work education, theory and practice. At the start of the twenty-first century social work finds itself at a crossroads. In Britain social work is shaped by managerialism and marketisation and social welfare services face retrenchment and substantial cuts. In this current climate the book examines the radical tradition to assert that 'another social work is possible' and assess its relevance for the movement today. It is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduates studying social work, as well as social work academics and researchers.
