Contemporary society is characterised by its ever-increasing diversity. Having sold over 70,000 copies across its four editions, Neil Thompson's classic text remains a trusted introduction to the challenges of promoting social justice and equality.
Addressing the ways in which social workers can effectively challenge inequality within society, the book explores the many forms of discrimination that can lead to disadvantage, disempowerment and oppression. Written with Thompson's inimitable clarity, this edition features:
· Three all-new chapters, including a contextual introduction and chapters on sexuality and religious discrimination;
· An explicit theory base, through extended discussion of the widely used PCS model;
· A range of questions for reflection and comprehensive guidance on further reading, incorporating books, articles and websites.
Today, good social work practice must be anti-discriminatory. This fully updated edition is therefore an essential read for the next generation of social work students, practitioners, managers and educators.
