Folgheraiter's book is still timely: its targets surround us. It is positive, in that it offers an alternative to "service delivery". It is rooted in well-established social work values and in the history of social work ideas. Its approach is easily compatible with the essence of community care and good child care... If it keeps the flame of community social work alive for a little longer it will have achieved something worthwhile.
Professional Social Work
This book is a useful contribution to current debates and offers helpful theoretical perspectives on the processes of social work relationships.
From the Foreword by Professor Ann Davis
In making a contribution to the international social work literature this book reaffirms the importance to social work theory and practice of recognising, across our differences, common concerns with social change, social ideas and social movements.
