Originally published in 1970, Social Work is an introduction for students and others who are thinking of taking up social work, or who want to know what social work is. The book begins by outlining the development of social work in the United Kingdom. It describes the methods social workers use, the knowledge they require in order to work effectively, the values they espouse, and the organisations within which they work.
