Social Work Practice
A great competent, accessible well-written SW theoretical text which I predominantly recommend for our 1st yr MA students undertaking our SW Methods & Safeguarding 2nd-semester module. Great chapters on the impact of neoliberalism, managerialism, risk, Bourdieu, poverty plus wider themes of globalisation. A great research and teaching text which I have also used for my PhD.
A great book insulting to understand social work - offer some good analysis and debate in developing a critical argument. Essential in relation to preparation for practice.
