Review:

"Davies′s well designed encyclopedia surveys the field of social work and is related discipline." Choice

"This second edition is a rich mixture of description, explanation and analysis. Contributions from academics who have expertise in the spectrum of social work activity provide comprehensive coverage of the history, focus and purpose of social work. They draw on research, practice and political commitment. The volume will be an excellent ′companion′ for social work students, practitioners and others studying social work in contemporary society." Joan Orme, Professor of Social Work, University of Glasgow.

"Building on the success of the first edition, the new edition makes an outstanding contribution to social work literature. Through a wide range of expert contributions, it captures in a single volume the key issues and debates surrounding the rationale for social work interventions, the contribution of theory and its application to practice, and the recognition of different perspectives". Professor Mike Stein, York University.

From the Back Cover:

This successful guide to social work theory and practice has now been fully revised and a substantial amount of new material has been added in order to make it even more comprehensive.

New perspectives are included on the way social work is seen by sociology, psychology, political science and the law. A new section on social work in practice describes work with children, families and adult service users, and discusses practice in schools, health care settings and the criminal justice system. Further new chapters deal with black perspectives and the perspective of the disabled persons movement. Chapters from the first edition have been brought up–to–date, and the Companion′s prestigious contributors continue to convey the tremendous diversity of the debates that characterise contemporary social work thinking.

The new edition maintains the highly accessible style of the previous version and is suitable both as an introduction to the subject and as a reference guide to key issues for experienced students and practitioners. Used in conjunction with the complementary Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social Work, it offers complete coverage of the discipline.
