about

This path-breaking text constructs a new way of thinking about social work based on contemporary social theory. Working in a counter-tradition that is suspicious of a number of governing ideas and practices in social work, it draws on themes from Beck, Giddens, Rose to explore the impact of risk society and neo liberalism on social work.
STEPHEN WEBB is Senior Lecturer in Social Work in the School of Cultural and Community Studies, University of Sussex, UK.
