This book offers a critically progressive and we hope inspiring, contribution to contemporary social work theory and practice. It is primarily aimed at assisting a developing understanding of the relationship between social work and the concept of community. It is written and published at a significant time in the development of UK social work, and social work education, which in our view has much to gain from community-based approaches. The book seeks to effectively engage with the complex social problems inherent in a twenty-first century postmodern society that has closely adhered to the demands of globalisation and neo-liberal economics.
