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
