Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Davies's well designed encyclopedia surveys the field of social work and is related discipline." Choice

"This second edition is a rich mixture of description, explanation and analysis. Contributions from academics who have expertise in the spectrum of social work activity provide comprehensive coverage of the history, focus and purpose of social work. They draw on research, practice and political commitment. The volume will be an excellent 'companion' for social work students, practitioners and others studying social work in contemporary society." Joan Orme, Professor of Social Work, University of Glasgow.

"Building on the success of the first edition, the new edition makes an outstanding contribution to social work literature. Through a wide range of expert contributions, it captures in a single volume the key issues and debates surrounding the rationale for social work interventions, the contribution of theory and its application to practice, and the recognition of different perspectives". Professor Mike Stein, York University.
