Reviews

"This ambitious and thoughtful book ranges from social and political theorisation to fine-grained analysis of policy and practice, and, importantly, critical reflection on the author's long experience as a social work practitioner." David Smith, Professor of Criminology, Lancaster University "Steve Rogowski is always worth reading. He is a rare breed: an informative - and radical - commentator on the evolution of social work who remains located within the turbulent world of practice. His new book on the transformation of the profession will be of interest to social workers, academics, students and many users of social work services." Paul Michael Garrett, National University of Ireland, Galway, Republic of Ireland "Good social work is based on a combination of values, theory and experience. So are good social work books, but often these three essentials aren't all in place. This book is an important and must-read exception, written by a committed practitioner with a clear value base." Peter Beresford, Centre for Citizen Participation, Brunel University "He brings together his long experience in social work with children and families, his record of academic achievement and the critical spirit of radical social work in this highly readable account of the current crisis of social work." Mary Langan in British Journal of Social Work "Social work can play a very important role in [the] future and Rogowski's analysis is a wise foundation for making sure we don't forget the lessons of the past." David Barnes in Professional Social Work "In this book, Steve Rogowski takes on the changing fortunes of social work in Britain... Rogowski explores this history from a standpoint that is both intimate (he has been a practicing social worker through the period)and politicized. The combination is a powerful one." --Social Service Review.
