When Skills in Neighbourhood Work first appeared in 1980, it was the first comprehensive guide for practitioners and students in social work and community development. It has been used extensively in Britain and abroad, and its success was followed by the production of two video tapes designed for use alongside the book. This revised second edition includes a new introduction and a rearrangement of the book's contents to make them more accessible to the practitioner and student. The authors take the reader from the beginning to the ending stages of neighbourhood work, and offers a framework within which students or practitioners can locate their activities. The outcome is a clear, thoughtful and comprehensive exposition of neighbourhood work that has already made a major contribution in the fields of social work and community development.

Skills in Neighbourhood Work is a practice textbook. It explains the skills, knowledge and techniques needed by community workers and other practitioners to work effectively in and with communities. While the principles and methods it describes have stood the test of time, the political, economic and social changes which have taken place since the book was first published have made a new edition essential. Completely rewritten and updated, the third edition retains all the practical information needed by the student or practitioner but sets it in the contemporary context. It includes a European perspective and views from America and Australia.Review:
'This book is excellent for anyone whom engagement in neighbourhood work is a new challenge. Not least it will provide assurance when nothing seems to be happening and when disinterest and suspicion rules. This book could be used as a point of reference - and for those who are really desperate and anxious - could be read from cover to cover!' - Urban Bulletin
