Excellent, student feedback has been very positive
An excellent introductory applied sociological text to help UG students grasp the importance of key sociological theoretical applications and understandings of the family, class, poverty, education, social exclusion etc.
Now an even more relevant text for UG students to read and grasp especially during times of prolonged austerity and ever increasing inequality and social division experienced by many people SWs encounter every day.

An up to-date book with good and practical learning points. The writers continue to make this book relevant for students. Helpful for those at the beginning of Sociology learning.
The Access students study a unit on Sociology as part of their course, and the course is intended mainly for prospective Social Workers, this book is really useful in making the link between Sociology and Social Work practice. It is reader friendly and easy to understand.
This most recent edition continues to provide students new to social work with the essential sociological theory to practice foundations.
This is a very good text that introduces undergraduates to important sociological concepts. This book is essential reading for all social work students and is highly recommended.
I have used this text throughout the teaching of this course. The examples which relate to practice are particularly useful for helping students relate theory to practice situations and I find the questions raised relevant and helpful for students. This is an extremely useful text.
Recommended to college libraries to order for short term loan.
Students have been recommended to buy this sound book.
This text is great for providing a good overview in the introduction to social policy.
supports course content and links with core text
Relevant for background but not as a core text
As with the earlier edition, this book provides basic understanding of key sociological theories and their relevance to social work in a way that introduces students to theory and draws them in to reflecting and analysing the contexts of practice.
will assist students in understanding the links between sociological influences and practice
One of the best books on this subject by far
Clearly written and accessible text.
Book not received
Very sound introduction to sociological perspectives for social work students
This is a good book to read. I enjoyed the style and manner in which it has been written.
Students should find this text a worth while purchase.
The issues this book explores are useful background knowledge for students to be aware of
