This reader, bringing together articles by social work practitioners and academics, examines the implications of the changes for radical strategies in social work, put forward in the '60s and '70s, implied by growing poverty and the austere social policies of the New Right in the 1980s. The contributors address issues such as racism and social work, unemployment and health care, privatization, patch systems of social work and work with the old. The book reaffirms the importance of feminist perspectives in radical social work, and reconsiders the difficulties of radical practice in probation work, community work and residential care.
