In this book, David Denney introduces some of the fundamental debates which link social work to social policy. Relevant to undergraduate students and researchers of social policy and social work , as well as professionals in related areas, this book enables the reader to develop a critical understanding of how social policy is related to social work both practically and theoretically. This is the only text of its kind which encourages and assists social workers in understanding recent developments in social policy. Throughout the book the centrality of linking theory to practice is emphasized. Chapters cover issues surrounding older people, disability, mental health, community care, working with offenders, children, the family, antiracism and social work. The book is equipped with further learning aids: All chapters contain a summary of the main points at the beginning, exercises and guided reading.

Denny provides a critical perspective on practice towards a thoughtful and compassionate social work, a notion that is all but lost in the current marketized environment. ... This is a highly readable text which should prove useful in making explicit the relationship between current social policy and social work practice./ British Journal of Social Work Vol 29 No 4
The strengths outweigh any weaknesses of this ambitious and welcome text. Brian Munday, University of Kent, Canterbury
