Books Info:

Race, Racism and Social Work free pdf Without a doubt, structural and institutionalised racism is still present in Britain and Europe, a factor that social work education and training has been slow to acknowledge. In this timely new book, Lavalette and Penketh reveal that racism towards Britain's ethnic minority groups has undergone a process of change. They affirm the importance of social work to address issues of 'race' and racism in education and training, presenting a critical review of a demanding aspect of social work practice. Original in its approach, and with diverse perspectives from key practitioners in the field, the authors examine contemporary anti-racism and racism towards Eastern European migrants, Roma people and asylum seekers and the realities of racism and their implications for current practice. This is essential reading for anyone academically or professionally interested in social work, and the developments in this field of study post 9/11.
