Lester Parrott uses social policy analysis to investigate the current policy conflicts and dilemmas for social work students and professionals. He adopts an anti-discriminatory approach to policy and practice. Social Work and Social Care outlines the importance of social policy for social work, taking care to describe the powerful ideological forces that underpin current practices. The author considers the importance of anti-discriminatory practice and its links with social policy analysis, as well as the future of social work and social care within altered social and political contexts. The text includes a glossary and useful website addresses for further study.
