This text makes an important contribution to the repertoire of contemporary social work practice. Its call to reclaim advocacy and locate it at the heart of practice serves to foreground the voice of the service user and reinvigorate social work toward its social justice responsibilities. This timely and compelling mandate is adeptly communicated in this very readable book. -- Professor Charlotte Williams OBE
