Description - What is Social Work? by Nigel Horner

It is essential that social work students have a clear grasp of the history and the evolutions of social work practice. Now in its fourth edition, Horner's classic introductory text looks at how issues such as the Personalisation Agenda, the work of the Reform Board, and how the notion of a Big Society and the recent contractions in government spending have impacted on practice and education.
