Social Work in a Risk Society: Social and Political Perspectives
Stephen A. Webb
Publication Date :
1 Jan 2006
This path-breaking text constructs a new way of thinking about social work based on contemporary social theory and taking into account recent changes in social work. Working in a counter-tradition that is suspicious of a number of governing ideas and practices in social work, it draws on themes in the work of theorists such as Beck, Giddens, Rose - risk, trust, regulation, identity, governmentality - to explore the impact of risk society and neo-liberalism on social work.
