"The content is very readable and engaging and offers a clear resource for community development and social work practitioners, educators and students to explore critical social work practice ... . This book should be included in social work courses that offer community development papers and modules and community development courses that wish to explore their relationship with social work. ... I highly recommend this work and will be utilising it in the community development papers we teach." (Peter Walker, Community Development Journal, Vol. 51 (3), July, 2016)
