Social Work in a Risk Society Social and Political Perspectives

by Stephen A. Webb

Social Work in a Risk Society Social and Political Perspectives Synopsis

This path-breaking text constructs a new way of thinking about social work based on contemporary social theory. Working in a counter-tradition that is suspicious of a number of governing ideas and practices in social work, it draws on themes from Beck, Giddens, Rose to explore the impact of risk society and neo liberalism on social work.
