"I enjoyed reading this book. It is a treasure house of information and will provide students with a firm foundation to working in anti-oppressive and empowering ways. It examines the difficulties of implementing noble ideals in practice, and so it should enable students to have a pragmatic, but theoretically grounded approach to working to eliminate social exclusion and marginality in their practice. It is an impressive revision of the first edition." —Lena Dominelli, Professor, School of Applied Social Sciences, Durham University
