Anarchists in Social Work
Anarchists in Social Work - Known to the Authorities
has just been reprinted, providing a fascinating insight into the practical application of anarchist ideas to contemporary social problems. It is the first book on radical social work for some 25 years, and reflects on aspects of social policy and ways in which they were seen between the 1960’s and the 1990’s. It also demonstrates how values, visions and ethical standards are squared with the demands of social work practice, and how the dead hand of bureaucracy is often a major part of the problem. Further details are available from a website set up to promote the book:
