When Skills in Neighbourhood Work first appeared in 1980, it was the first comprehensive guide for practitioners and students in social work and community development. It has been used extensively in Britain and abroad, and its success was followed by the production of two video tapes designed for use alongside the book. This revised second edition includes a new introduction and a rearrangement of the book's contents to make them more accessible to the practitioner and student. The authors take the reader from the beginning to the ending stages of neighbourhood work, and offers a framework within which students or practitioners can locate their activities. The outcome is a clear, thoughtful and comprehensive exposition of neighbourhood work that has already made a major contribution in the fields of social work and community development.
