This book makes an important contribution to reconceptualising the theoretical basis for social work. It does so in a respectful, relational manner that builds on the best approaches from the past combined with those from the present, encompassing marginal as well as mainstream voices and in so doing furthers the cause of social justice at the heart of social work. -- Gillian Ruch, Professor of Social Work, University of Sussex, UK
Social workers will need to be open to the unexpected, to making the most of unanticipated opportunities, and to dare to dream. In that context, this book, bringing together newly emerging forms of understanding and practice, represents an excellent place to start. -- From the foreword by Jim Ife, Professor of Social Work, Western Sydney University
