Additional Information: This book breaks new theoretical ground. Webb integrates sociological analyses to construct a new conceptual framework for understanding risk, combining theoretical analysis with application to interdisciplinary case examples. As identified by 3 leading academics, the book i) 'brings a rare depth of scholarship and sophistication'; ii) 'draws on an impressive range of classical and contemporary ideas'; iii) is 'a brilliant book that relentlessly exposes the 'managerialism' into which social work has descended.' With sales exceeding all expectations, the book has become a primary reference point in the field and will have lasting impact on the theorisation of social work.
