Editorial Reviews

'The book is clearly current, but it will remain relevant to anyone with an interest in inter-agency working.' - Rob Watling, University of Leicester, Social Policy 'The authors of Education, Social Justice and Inter-Agency Working hope that this collection of papers leaves the reader with many questions to ponder.' It does, but it does more than that: it obliges the readers to decide which version of joined-up thinking they wish to practise.' - Paul Taylor, European Journal of Social Work
