This is a good book for social workers as it outlines the past present and future of this role.
It is a debatable book as the title implies themes, issues and critical debates.
I have not read the book in-depth as yet as my course will be starting in the next two weeks , so I am trying to read ahead.
For a second hand book it was good quality as I have not seen any marking.
I also got the book soon after purchase. Well done.

I bought this at the beginning of my Social Work degree on the recommendation of one my lecturers. Originally I bought it to help with an essay on the history of social work, however it actually reads fairly easily and contains so much information that I think everyone coming into SW should know.
At times it become a bit heavy and I was not particularly interested in a lot of the history of SW in other countries, but there is a lot of information here and if you are looking for things to add to your reading list I would put this near the top!
