This book argues the necessity for social professionals working locally to equip themselves with knowledge of global mechanisms and cross-cultural issues. Local level examples include the increase in victims of trafficking or the effects of HIV/AIDS on some immigrant groups. International examples include the risk to children moving across borders, the growth of international pedophile networks, and the proliferation of terrorism.

Review:

'[H]ighly recommended for practioners, managers and those in social work education.' - Professional Social Work 'This book is timely as it should help readers in terms of conceptualising these themes and placing them within the context of their experiences. It is highly recommended for practitioners, managers and those in social work education.' - Rohan Burke, Social Work 'The book offers a lot of useful knowledge on how to understand the different aspects of the subjects related to globalisation, and the many examples make is easy to follow.' - Gurid Aga Askeland, Health and Social Care in the Community
