I really would recommend this book to social work students.
Also the title reads 'social work' it contains many of the debates and issues raised on the BA Community Justice course
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 am a 1st year MA student and it is easily understood, accessible, and has great depth for my course.
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!
