Over several decades, anti-oppressive practice and anti-discriminatory perspectives have become an integral part of social work. Responding to an urgent need for an up-to-date text that addresses recent developments, this book charts the impact of social changes and new literature shaping social work theory and practice with black and minority individuals, families and communities. It builds upon popular texts addressing anti-discriminatory frameworks but focuses specifically upon black perspectives in social work, taking into account current issues and concerns.Written specifically for a US and UK market, the book provides an excellent introductory text to social work with black and minority ethnic communities for students, lecturers, practice teachers/assessors who are engaged in examining anti-discriminatory practice frameworks and black perspectives in academic settings and practice learning. It will support curriculum-based learning through its focus on anti-discriminatory practice in a climate that appears less sympathetic to the multicultural nature of British society.

It addresses the lack of responsiveness to the experiences of Blacks and highlights the tendency of systems of care to provide cookie cutter approaches to expressed need, putting the issue of race front and centre in the provision of goods and services. A must read. E. Jane Middleton, Chair, Dept of Social Work Education, California State University, Fresno

This book offers an extremely useful theoretical and practical framework for analysing what happens in social work ... It is excellent at looking at the how and why and provokes thinking. Community Care

This book is a very welcome update of Bandana Ahmad's classic 1990 text on black perspectives in social work. Race equality is now policy throughout government, but Mekada Graham draws together the evidence on persistent inequalities that affect the daily lives of black and minority ethnic individuals and communities. It is essential reading for a profession committed to social justice and to the continuing struggle for race equality. Daphne Statham, Independent Consultant, former director of the
