Review:

This book confidently places sociology at the heart of social work pedagogy. It also imaginatively explores ways forward in the development of a more enlightened and radical practice. Academics will be much encouraged if students have this text in their bibliographies, and students will have some defence against the widespread propensity for the poor to be blamed for their own poverty. Martin Thomas, Former Head of the Institute of Social Work and Applied Social Studies, Staffordshire University

The sociological imagination has always been at the heart of good social work practice, even if it has been eclipsed in recent years by individualism and managerialism. This exciting and accessible text will allow a new generation of social work students to discover the importance of critical sociology for understanding the structural forces shaping the lives of those with whom they work. Iain Ferguson, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Stirling

the book is highly readable. There is an equal consideration given to each of the key themes explored. The text incorporates real life case studies to emphasise situations. Activities are suggested which will generate discussions. It is a thought-provoking read. Community Care, Oct 11, 2007
