This engaging and accessible introduction to social work encourages reflective learning in preparation for practice. Direct linking of key concepts to professional standards ensures that students are able to build up an understanding through context and reflective points, and with an emphasis on diversity, ideology, and preparing for practice, students will benefit from both practical and theoretical guidance.  Sections are designed to work as both integrated and standalone resources and the flexible methodology will support a range of courses and learning techniques.

1. The historical development of social work: making links from the past to the present
2. The contemporary role of social work: working with communities and complexity
3. Preparing for social work practice: Models of intervention for social work practice
4. Working with diversity: understanding and locating individuals and communities

I think the book is an excellent introductory text for social work students. It contextualises the profession of social work and provides a solid foundation for students to build upon and develop their social work skills, knowledge and practice. It is written in an accessible manner and written in plan  English. The chapters are well structured and the text boxes, explaining key concepts and presenting questions for students to consider are a notable feature. I would recommend this book as a core text for all social work students, when commencing their social work programme of study. (Kate Parkinson, University of Salford, UK)
