This classic text has been essential reading for students and professionals in the field of social work and disability for twenty years. Extensively revised and updated, the third edition examines the ways in which disabled people have increasingly been able to manage and develop their own services. It reconstructs social work practice in the light of these and the latest policy changes, stressing throughout the importance to practice of thinking critically about the welfare response to disability.
