Meryl Aldridge provides a well-informed an dinformative account of the representation of a range of social work issues in the media. ... a book that breaks new ground in helping us t understand the relationship between social work and the news media. ... it is a welcome addition to the literature makes a number of important and significant points and in the process, provides, considerable empirical evidence to illustrate and support the points of debate.' - British Journal of Social Work
`... really useful and readable account of how social work has been treated by the media, ... essential reading for CPOs and for all students. This short review cannot do justice to the thorough and convincing analysis and the useful pointers for developing a strategy.' - Probation Journal
`This book has much to interest all those concerned with contemporary British society and I hope its readership will extend beyond those who are interested in social work, the media and sociology' - Issues in Social Work Education
