Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A guide to help people in the social professions meet the challenges of multicultural populations as people move into and around in Europe. Rather than prescribing a set of practices or values, raises questions and illustrates ways of thinking about them. Presents the information in case studies, practice accounts, research, theoretical debate, observations, and modelling to demonstrate the wide range of approaches. Emphasizes the importance of looking at power relationships, on the positioning of being a minority, and some of the consequent effects of migration. Annotation c.
