Social Theory, Social Change and Social Work has two inter-related themes. First to account for and analyse current changes in social work and second, to assess how far recent developments in social theory can contribute to their interpretation. The book locates social work in its social and political contexts, paying particular attention to the changing organisation of social work; the questions of feminism and difference; social workers as surface performers; the centrality and significance of risk; the past and futures of social work in probation, with older people and in child welfare; and the failures of social work education and the role of CCETSW. It will be essential reading for students on qualifying and post-qualifying social work programmes, as well as courses in sociology, social policy, politics, law and health.
