About this book


Building on the success of Anti-Discriminatory Practice, Neil Thompson provides a scholarly yet practical account of the significance of discrimination and oppression in the human services, such as social work, nursing, youth and community work and professions allied to medicine. The book explores the theory and practice of promoting equality, emphasising both the major imperative of tackling inequality and the difficulties and demands of doing so. No-one who takes seriously the challenge of promoting equality can afford to be without this book.
