Over het boek:

In this work academics and practitioners from all five continents highlight the history of the social work profession and its underlying academic and social paradigms. The authors come from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Belgium, Canada, Ghana, Great Britain, India, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States. The structure of this work allows the reader to trace back the historical and political influences in the interpretation of social work in the authors' countries. Special attention is given to the notions of human rights and social diversity. Are human rights universal and which impact does this universality have on the social work profession? How does categorical work relate to generalist practice and does this in its turn relate to the conception of diversity? The authors approach these main queries in an exemplary and balanced manner using both theoretical analysis and case studies.
