From the Back Cover:

Fundamental to social work are the values of justice and equality. But it has long been felt that these values are being eroded under a system of capitalist power. Serving to reactivate and refresh social work's radical tradition to form a new political agenda, The New Politics of Social Work:

· Brings together leading international authors to deliver a critical exploration of the impact capitalism has had on social work

· Paves the way for students and practitioners of social work to take a more transformative, radical approach

This is an important and authoritative book for both advanced level undergraduate and postgraduate students of Social Work.
