About the Author

Doug Nicholls has been a professional and trade union leader of youth workers for over thirty years. He has written extensively on the history of unionisation in the sector and youth work, and produced unique publications on key issues in practice. His advocacy for youth work and youth workers throughout the UK and Ireland have put him in the forefront of debates about theory and practice and much of this experience is distilled into this new publication.

Reviews

"Extremely accessible, this will challenge and appeal to youth workers, students, academics and policy makers alike. Essential and timely reading." Kev Henman, Divisional Youth Officer, Devon Youth Service "Doug Nicholls' book makes a passionate case for defending youth work's potential as a powerful transformative force. This is essential reading for all those concerned with youth and community work." Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths', University of London "Doug Nicholls' message - the need for a new youth work for a new century - is sometimes polemical, often provocative, invariably partisan and always passionate. But it is principled, and it is essential that we reflect carefully on his words." Howard Williamson, Professor of European Youth Policy, University of Glamorgan
