What People are Saying About This
'...I would recommend this text to anyone with a concern about the future of our profession and its management in these 'modernising' times...I see his most important contribution as one that looks to transform care from a matter of personal sacrifice to one of reciprocity, of citizenship, the right to both receive and give care being as importan as a right to work.' - Steve Moore, Professional Social Work
