Organisations and Management in Social work is a leading text in the field, providing both context for students and tools for practitioners and managers to bring social work values and theories to bear in the neoliberal bureaucracies we so often find ourselves in. Thoughtful, accessible and targeted specifically at social workers, this new edition engages practically and politically with the realities of contemporary service provision. -- Chris Maylea
The new edition of Organisational Practice is a solid up-to-date textbook for social work students seeking to be effective social workers within organisations. Mark Hughes and Michael Wearing have included interesting cases, diagrams and reflective questions, which are useful for making important concepts and theories accessible. Highly recommended! -- Jean Burke
This is a comprehensive and sufficiently challenging text for undergraduate students which promotes thinking and critical analysis of the `real world' within which social work practice takes place. -- Lynne McPherson
Stimulating critique and challenging perspective of the book really makes the reader think and question their practice. -- Julia Foster-Turner
