About the Author

University of Edinburgh, UK


'This is a stimulating collection of readings by authoritative authors on topics of great relevance to contemporary social work.' - Robert Adams, University of Teesside, UK 'Viviene Cree is to be congratulated on compiling a compelling and first-rate collection of literature for this reader. From Freire, through Bailey and Brake to Fook, and from C. Wright Mills, through Egan to Saleeby, this is a varied collection from the world of social work and beyond. It is a balanced and comprehensive range of material covering many schools of thought on myriad areas of interest to students, academics and practising social workers. The quality of the chapters makes most of them timeless and readers will want to revisit and relearn over a long period of time.' - Mark Baldwin, University of Bath, UK 'Social work needs a book like this. It is stuffed with extracts from some of the best past and present writings on and for social work. Cree's enthusiasm is infectious and will have readers returning to half remembered texts and searching out the material that is new to them. It is a splendid book -- a celebration of social work reading.' - John Pinkerton, Queen's University Belfast, UK
