About this book


This major text addresses the relevance of sociological concepts to social work practice, arguing that lack of understanding of the ways in which social work fits into society's structures and is informed by its relationship with these can lead to impoverished social work practice. Written from an anti-racist, feminist perspective, it both argues for social workers to engage in empowering forms of practice and provides students, practitioners and educators with a new 'paradigm' to draw on.
