The expanded second edition of Social Work and Social Theory aims to radically rework and re-energise the content of the earlier book. Updates to the new edition include: three new chapters (on Foucault, Boltanski and Chiapello, and Negri); a radical editing of the earlier text; updated and topical ‘Reflection and Talk Boxes’ reflecting the major global events reshaping the political landscape in the United Kingdom (Brexit) and United States (the 2016 presidential election); streamlined use of quotations from original sources (e.g. Gramsci, Bourdieu etc.) to aid readability and make complex theoretical concepts even more accessible; a more extensive conclusion; a more contemporary range of references to supersede those which may have become dated since the first edition.
Review Quotes
Vasilios Ioakimidis, University of Essex
“Paul Michael Garett’s excellent book has already become a social work classic. His work not only skillfully navigates complex theoretical debates but it also bridges the persistent and pervasive gap between social work theory and practice.”
Michael Reisch, University of Maryland
“The second edition of Garrett’s insightful text provides a solid conceptual foundation for the development of critical social work at a time when it is more necessary than ever.”
Gary Walker, Leeds Beckett University
“A necessary and important book that explains with passion, wit, and insight the links between social theory and social work practice. It will be invaluable to students and practitioners alike.”
Liz Beddoe, University of Auckland
“In this revised and expanded edition, Garrett offers a rich and insightful exploration of essential social theory for social work that will be a vital resource for social work educators and students.”
